Tony Snow - Cover-ups for Press Secretary Begin Before he Officially Starts

When the White House press corps first starts asking questions of new White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, the first question should be, "Sir, exactly what are you trying to hide?". There are a plethora of glib answers one could give to such a question, but the fact remains, Mr. Snow was a regular poster over at Free Republic ( ), and as one can see from the link and quote below, overnight when it was announced he would be the new press secretary, the mountain of information Mr. Snow had submitted and had posted on the site disappeared. What is he hiding? What sorts of comments is he afraid might see the light of day?

This is who the White House has chosen to be a trusted deliverer of important information?

So, when the White House press corps ask Press Secretary Snow about possible cover-ups in the Valerie Plame CIA Leak-Gate affair, what expectation should they have for any sort of truthful information? But isn't this the White House whose candidate said "We're going to restore Honor and Dignity to the White House"? What sort of Honor and Dignity can one have where evasiveness and cover-ups and deleted comments are the order of the day? And what is this replacement about anyway? A Press Secretary isn't a creator or developer of policies, he simply is someone who tries to put the best face on the President's policies. The public is unhappy with the President and what he has done, so what steps does the President take? He hires someone, for whom cover-ups are the order of the day, to try and convince us that we in fact like the President's policies. What a complete insult to the people's intelligence.

Tony Snow should be withdrawn from consideration and someone the people can trust should be put in his place.

Jim Robinson and/or the moderators removed all of Tony's posts from here sometime yesterday. My assumption is that the White House doesn't want any of his private comments easily available.
