Obama spokes hole Robert Gibbs has always had something of a tough job I think, anyone whose job it would be to sell the destructive Obama policies would. Anyone but a committed Marxist would. Having to spin the blatant lies being fed him from up top nearly daily would have to make one think about grabbing a beer, popping the door open, and jumping to relative mental safety. Add to the normal citizens of the United States being angry and demanding answers the left, impatient to see all their idiot wish list pushed forward immediately if not sooner, you’d get to feeling maybe trapped and even a little snippy.
So it was when Gibbs sat down for an interview recently, it may have been forgivable (somewhat) when he unloaded a bit;
In an interview with The Hill newspaper in Washington DC, Gibbs revealed frustration at attacks on the administration from liberal Democrats and others on the left, in terms likely to make relations even worse:
“I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested,” Gibbs said. “I mean, it’s crazy.”
The press secretary dismissed the “professional left” in terms very similar to those used by their opponents on the ideological right, saying, “They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”
Of course, now the “professional left” (hey, we’ve known that for years they were largely paid hacks) are beyond being merely in an uproar at being identified as the “working girls” they are, and heads must roll;
Robert Gibbs should resign immediately. He just spit on the face of those who helped Barack Obama get elected and routinely defend him day in and day out against vicious smears from the right. Where did he come up with the term professional left? I thought we were the Cheetos-eating basement dwellers? Has Gibbs looked at all the polling data? As Chris Bowers pointed out, Obama lost 13 points of support from the Liberal community.
Hey, if the position might become vacant soon, I hear Olbermann may need a job other than destroying cable ratings. That is, I mean, when whatever nutwork he’s on finally gets tired of propping him up.
