Snow On The Outs?

Treasury Secretary John W. Snow
Lost amid the news that Tom Delay will not be running for reelection, is the news that Treasury Secretary John W. Snow will likely be replaced in another administration shakeup. The New York Times reported last week that new Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten wanted Snow out, because Bolten wanted "someone who could more forcefully portray the strength of the economy."

There is something to that. The economy is booming, and yet the perception is that the souplines are going out the door and around the corner. The administration just is not getting the word out as it should that the US economy is in overdrive.

Another sticking point is that Snow has not been perceived as forceful in getting China to revalue the Yuan upward from its artificially low levels, which propels Chinese exports.

Update: President Bush this morning stated that Snow "has been a valuable member of my administration, I trust his judgment and appreciate his service."

He didn't say Snow was staying, however, which seems like damning with faint praise.

P.S. I have to pat myself on the back for being an old HTML dog that learned a new trick - word wrapping HTML around pictures!

I didn't say I was a skilled dog, just an old one.

He is a good guy, but, yeah, Bush needed to replace him after the election. Someone young, attractive, and energetic, who could sell the economy.

I say good luck to Bush and Bolten in trying to find a replacement. If he/she is any better than Snow it won't be much of an improvement, particularly if all they are is a political mouth piece for the administration.

Maybe, Tom Delay will be able to rise above and generate his championship spirit in a different place...

Will you would be a great replacement!...
