Now is the time for the White House to go on the offense and "get our mojo back," Josh Bolten says in his first interview since taking over as President George W. Bush's chief of staff.
Bolten made no promises of pulling up Bush's all-time low approval ratings, but he said he and Bush have decided they want to be more open with the media and the public.
"We've taken advice from a lot of folks that we ought to put the president out more in ways that the American people can see what he's really like," Bolten said on "Fox News Sunday."
But he said that does not mean the president's policies are going to get an overhaul. "I don't think we need to change, but we do need to refresh and re-energize," Bolten said.
