Frustration boiling over at the White House? You be the judge from this testy exchange at this morning’s briefing from spokesman Tony Snow, who complained about what he called the opposition’s “recipe for failure” in Iraq.
CNN’s Ed Henry asked Snow to define the recipe for success.”I’m not brilliant enough” to offer a “one-line answer,” Snow said before turning the question to Henry.
“How would you define the recipe for success?” he asked Henry, who didn’t appreciate having the question turned on him and would not let Snow go on.
“Zip it,” Snow said, drawing Henry’s opinion that the line was inappropriate.
“You’re right,” Snow said. “It’s not appropriate. I apologize. Please continue to interrupt as I try to answer.”
