Tony Snow: “Troop Withdrawal” Is Totally Different In Meaning From “Troop Withdraw

Brian Zick

Tony Snow was asked, yesterday, by David Gregory about the leaked Rumsfeld memo and its recommdation for troop withdrawals, and whether the White House was being hypocritical when it disparagingly accused Democrats of "cutting and running" when Bush's own Secretary of Defense was recommending the very same thing in private. Snow maintained there was no hypocrisy, because Gregory was "talking about apples and oranges." Crooks and Liars has the video.
