Robert Gibbs: Arrogant, Abrasive, Childish . . . Perfect For Obama

Has a president ever had a more representative spokesman than Barack Obama's choice of Robert Gibbs? This guy has Homer Simpson's couth, Bart Simpson's maturity and O.J. Simpson's people skills. And he's also blessed with the arrogance we've come to expect from this administration.

Just imagine if one of Bush's press secretaries had treated people with the utter disrespect that this cretin employs. If you are on Obama's "enemies list," then Gibbs is going to go all blastula-brained on you, using his press-secretary's podium as a bully pulpit.

You remember his podium attack on Rick Santelli?

This is a copy of the president's home affordability plan," Gibbs said, holding up the plan. "It's available on the White House website, and I would encourage him: Download it, hit print, and begin to read it."Gibbs then invited Santelli to visit the White House to read the plan."I'd be more than happy to have him come here and read it," Gibbs said. "I'd be happy to buy him a cup of coffee — decaf."
Of course, this sarcastic buffoon knew that Santelli had read the plan and disagreed with it. When Santelli agreed to go to the White House . . . well, the invite seemed to disappear.

Gibbs doesn't like Rush Limbaugh, so he misquoted him to make another public attack:
"Do they want to see the president's economic agenda fail? You know, I bet there are a number of guests on television throughout the day and maybe into tomorrow who could let America know whether -- whether they agree with what Rush Limbaugh said this weekend,"
Is anybody else troubled by the fact that he was attempting to manipulate the media by telling them who they should book as guests the next day? And, of course, those who actually took the time to investigate what Limbaugh really said know that he didn't say he wanted the economy to fail, but that he wanted Obama's socialist agenda to fail. And how many Republicans . . . no, make that how many informed Americans agree with Limbaugh on that?

And when CNBC host Jim Cramer claimed that the administration's economic policies "represent the 'greatest wealth destruction' by a president," Gibbs attacked him as well, saying
"If you turn on a certain program, it's geared to a very small audience, no offense to my good friends or friend at CNBC."
As the administration's enemies list grows and grows, this repugnant Robert most recently turned his sights on former VP Dick Cheney. After Cheney sanely explained during a CNN interview that President Obama's policies on terrorism suspects would make the United States more vulnerable to attack, Gibbs snipped with his usual infantile sarcasm,
"I guess Rush Limbaugh was busy so they trotted out the next most popular member of the Republican cabal."
A cabal? Showing shades of Hillary now? And it goes without saying that Gibbs and his boss are far too imperious to ever consider advice from a member of the administration that kept America safe after 9/11.

I can't help but wonder how long this will be allowed to go on. How long can an official spokesperson for the president make verbal assaults on everyone who differs with them before Americans are feed up with this 3rd-grade approach to dealing with opposition voices? (With apologies to 3rd graders who don't resort to name calling when somebody questions them.) When will the main stream American media start genuinely reporting again?

    Sorry, but that man repulses me. I can't look at him.
    HOW DARE he attack ANYBODY? The smugness he shows, the disdain for anybody who disagrees with THE ONE.

    These guys are SO vindictive and nasty. He IS perfect for Obama...I grieve that Obama seems to be on such a terrible road.

    I know it's silly, but his dissing the Gridiron Dinner just IRKS me....yes, it wouldn't be AS much fun to watch previous years, but I have watched and enjoyed them. How dare he decide he needs to fly to Camp David that night for his daughters' spring breaks when it's only 20 min to the WH to attend that dinner? Nice that he wants to spend time with his girls, but ONE NIGHT, one TRADITIONAL night can't be honored?? OH, brother. :0(

    What a spin Gibbs put on that, too. They didn't even get their stories to jive.

    This guy is a piece of crap...I can't stand him. He and Scott McLelland should get together and go bowling, and look at each other longingly of course! TOTAL TOOLS!:)N

    You know, Z, it's silly but it irks me too. It just shows the arrogance of this man that he feels above those who came before him. And that's a load of crap about his daughters. If he were so worried about spending time with them why did he turn to politics in the first place, where he would be in a career that kept him away from his family.

    Nikki, I couldn't agree more. Robert Gibbs is a wart.

    China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
    Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
    If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
    I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

    Hi guys,

    I know this might be a bit off topic but seeing that a bunch of you own websites, where would the best place be to host. Someone recommended I use [url=http://bit.ly/aTAtZb]Blue Host[//url] for $6.95 a month which seems like a great deal. Anyone here on www.blogger.com using them?

    Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

    Hello Members,
    How is it going. I am an american who returned from sydney recently. It was awesome and I stayed at various hotels. One thing about [url=http://www.stay247.com/hotels/australia/sydney-hotels.html]sydney hotels[/url] is that they are costly. But they are real good and you would definitely love them as much as I did. Its so different from our country.


    I have a much more to say but I am still suffering from jet lag. I will add more. Stay tuned :)
