Video: Tony Snow at National Review’s conservative summit

posted at 3:33 pm on January 29, 2007 by Allahpundit

Thank god Bryan cooked some posts up for us today because I’ve got nothing. Neither has Drudge, apparently — the lead story on the front page hasn’t changed in about 21 hours.

Take advantage of the news lull to enjoy a snippet of the Snowman. Fangirl that she is, Mary K was at the NR summit this weekend and caught a few minutes of video. Ace was there too and says the guy is a rock star.

Mitt Romney, though? Not so much.

Please capitalize “God.” Your not capitalizing it is not only irritating to most viewers of the blog and a slap in the face to conventions in Western civilization, but also childishly liberal.

Deal.

Allahpundit on January 29, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Sorry to sound rude in the above post, but it reminds me of those libs who try to get rid of AD and BC in all textbooks, museums, etc. and replace these conventions of Western Civilization with CE and BCE.

God is spelled with a capital G.

januarius on January 29, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Shhh. Don’t tell the liberals:

CE/BCE = Christ Existed / Before Christ Existed

Mitt Romney [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

He’s been better (like in Israel earlier in the week ).

Unfortunately Governor Romney missed an opportunity last night. He didn’t knock this one out of the park — and it’s the kind of speech Team Romney would no doubt have wanted him to — as he was speaking to a key and active conservative audience.

He said a lot of great things, but in a long and at times wonky speech — albeit honest and conservative (not conservative on words though…). As I tend to, I liked a lot of what he said — he’s a Mr. Fix it (business, Olympics, Massachusetts budget…) who came to a full appreciation for the dangers to human life and marriage afoot only as governor. But in a dinner speech that mentioned bond caps, he didn’t make the case for Romney 2008 in a rallying way. It was off the cuff — which gave it some authenticity, but no structure. If you asked audience members what he said — “A whole lot.”

That is interesting about Mitt Romney being underwhelming. The Christian conservatives don’t trust him on his positions on abortion and he doesn’t seem to have impressed the conservatives at National Review. But he really wants it. Just the other day, I got a advertisement for his presidency in the mail.

Conservatives seem really enthused about Newt Gingrich and he is extremely articulate. I hope he gets the nomination.

Bush and Co. really need to be getting Snow out there more often. Explaining and defending stuff. Especially given the hostility of the press and of course the libs.

Dat’s my man.

a4g on January 29, 2007 at 3:56 PM

That’s funny! I noticed some of the newer exhibitions in the Smithsonian, such as in the Asian Freer and Sackler galleries, were using CE/BCE instead of AD/BC, which always gets my blood boiling. Some professors when I was majoring in Asian Studies would use those terms to be politically correct, but normal, reasonable profs (even many liberals) found BCE and CE to be absurd. But it is a very annoying trend!

For some reason, when I saw AllahPundit (who is always great) use god, it reminded me of the those most PC professors for a second.

januarius on January 29, 2007 at 4:09 PM

yeah, he’s arock star. They NEEDED tHis guy to compensate fr his boss- GW is about as far form rock stardom as you can get.

mikeomatic on January 29, 2007 at 4:09 PM

Romney’s speech reminds me of an absurd South Park soliloquy.

natesnake on January 29, 2007 at 4:13 PM

I’m not sure if I prefer a capital or small G when taking the Lord’s name in vain.

I’ll one-up you, januarius.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were on exhibit for 4-months in town. They used CE/BCE for the entire exhbit. Then, at the end, they you had to walk through an exhibit of Eastern religios mumbo-jumbo, you know, to be faaaairrrrrr.

You can always ask our beloved AP about Mitt and his numerous wonderful presidential qualities.

Romney is ‘R’ hero for our writer here, huh AP.

Januarius… please stop spelling out the name of G-D. I find this incredibly offensive, and am very concerned that you may inadvertantly bring about the Apocalypse.

Watcher on January 29, 2007 at 4:23 PM

januarius on January 29, 2007 at 3:47 PM

That’s generally the case, but I don’t get the impression that Allah is actually thanking God. Unless he is, capitalizing the word can, by some, actually be seen as blaspemous, like when people curse, “oh my god.” They’re not talking to God either, just like when people say “b@$t@rd,” they’re not literally claiming the person was illegitimate.

To be honest, I am someone who gets annoyed (if only slightly) when “God” and references to Him (like He, His, etc.) are not capitalized (it’s also improper English), but capitalizing His name here is almost counterproductive. I mean it’s trying to revere God at the same time His name is being used flippantly.

I just wouldn’t worry about it. Not here anyway.

Good point. There are many ways to be offended here.

Watcher on January 29, 2007 at 4:23 PM

OK, am I the only one who doesn’t understand the use of G-D when writing? When writing about God, the Lord, my Saviour, my Creator, any of these words, why do some omit the “O” as above?
I really do not understand. If it is blasphemous, then don’t write it. If you’re writing about God, why be ashamed?

I overreacted and came across as rude because for a sec it reminded me of the most PC professors I used to have. It is too bad we don’t have a delete button for our posts!

The funniest thing I’ve seen was a book on early Catholic liturgy obviously written by a flaming liberal, and he used the terms BCE and CE to talk about dates in the history of Christian liturgy.

This BCE, CE trend is really spreading because libs love it. About the Smithsonian exhibitions, I wondered if Congress has a say in whether they use BCE/CE or BC/AD. After all, Congress funds the Smithsonian.

From what I can tell the G-d is usually used by those of the Judaism persuasion.

Nope. I wouldn’t do that. Of course, right after the eastern religion exhibit was the gift shop.

How about Newt Gingrich for president and Tony Snow as VP?

I think I just short-circuited my brain thinking about this possibility.

Kokonut on January 29, 2007 at 4:57 PM

Short “O” in G-D explanation

Tony is good looking, positive, and at least annoying to the media.

AP is uniquely amusing to self and most others. He can be insufferable, yet not divorceable, to some. He lives to please make deals.

Entelechy on January 29, 2007 at 5:24 PM

AP, Drudge changed the lead story from Hillary to Barbaro.

Entelechy on January 29, 2007 at 5:44 PM

I do NOT care for Tony Snow…he has been pro Illegals all along…and made no bones about it before his press gig at the White House……..
Anyone who doesn’t get the implications of unfettered illegals immigration is either brain dead or a plain idiot!

..there was never a “before Christ existed”

…ok, back to Tony….

jjjen on January 30, 2007 at 9:22 AM

Wonder if Snow has the little hairs on the back of neck stand up when he reads about his predecessor subpeonaed to testify at Scooter’s trial? A glimpse into the future perhaps….Ohh, scary!!!

honora on January 30, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Tony would make a far better candidate than the neo-cons running at the moment! Hummm Newt/Tony…I’m liking it!!!!

A LOT
