Tony Snow: Backtracks on Harriet Miers as Orginator of U.S. Attorney Firing Idea

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow today backtracked off the Harriet Miers story. He says people's memories are now hazy.

"It has been described as her idea but ... I don't want to try to vouch for origination," said White House press secretary Tony Snow, who previously had asserted Miers was the person who came up with the idea. "At this juncture, people have hazy memories."

Sung to the tune of Jimi Hendrix.

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just dont seem the same
Actin funny, but I dont know why
scuse me while I kiss the sky

I'll be discussing the firings on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday morning at 10:00 am ET.

Update: New York Times on Snow's statement.

    like to see this hounded into the ground.  Better the dems in the house and senate focus on this rather than bills to increase domestic spending.  Weak 'ol Bush would go along with them on that.

    Wile, have you actually looked at who's got the money these days? It's being redistributed, that's for sure.

    Funny how it's only allowed to be redistributed in one way.

    your appearance on Reliable Sources.  You aren't going to be on with Victoria Toensing are you?  I'd love to see you verbally smack her around for awhile.

    I guess VT wouldn't be on talking about the US Attorney firings.  I read the two posts too fast and got confused. Sorry, my bad.
