Bush picks Fox's Snow as press secretary

I'm tired of hearing about Bush's staff. I'm even more tired of hearing people talk about him shaking things up in response to his low poll numbers and analyzing what each move will mean. It's all ridiculous. Not that I think there aren't a few people in Bush's staff who are stupid and/or incompetent, but the people he has aren't the problem, it's the decisions he makes. And since he's The Decider(!), unless he's going to do us all a favor and replace himself, I'm sick of hearing about it. Especially when I know anyone I don't like who leaves is just going to be replaced by someone as bad or worse. Picking the right people to surround himself with seems to be one of the things Bush is the worst at. And that's saying a lot. And anyway, these big shakeups aren't very big. They replace the guy no one's ever heard of, and the guy who everyone hates simply because he's regurgitating the official administration position.

If Bush really wanted to do something to change his poll numbers (and I know that he doesn't, I'm not stupid), he would tell us something (anything, there are many choices) he has done wrong, then tell us how he's going to fix it, then do it. Actually, at this point, I'd be happy (to the max!) if he just stopped talking like he's in the third grade.

On the bright side, Tony Snow is already use to spreading Bush's propaganda, so his job has not changed much.

The GOP does not grasp a simple fact. We who compose the younger generation of Republicans vote based on ideology not party loyalty. This explains the current low poll numbers because we thought we had elected a conservative Decider but what we have well you know...

I understand that in this arena you feel free to make a comment like this but please consider the number of Demo staffers who campaigned for Demos and then joined the media or vic versa. In the last election Kerry had 2 people on his staff that were still employed by CNN I think it was. The point is consider the reverse of your arguement.
