    Did Mr. Gibbs graduate summa cum laude from the Al Franken Graduate School of Comedic Journalism? Patronizing to the nth degree is the best way to describe this farce. Helen Thomas gets it. Most people, I think, get it.
    Gibbs might be able to make it as a guest host at a stag party, assuming that everyone is drunk enough to laugh at everything he says.
    Mr. Gibbs needs to get a stimulus loan. Then he can return to that fly-by-night school, and learn what he didn’t learn the first time [non-patronizing, objective journalism].

    • Chris

      Unfortunately, Mr. Gibbs does not get his questions pre-screened and get to reply off a teleprompter like his boss. This administration has become a joke and embarrassment for American Patriots.

  • Mike D.

    Boy …….what a difference between Gibbs and Dana Perino.

  • Anita Eitmann

    We need to keep this court jester around just for laughs.

  • Patricia Henson

    He’s just Obamas handpuppet. Obama sends him out to take the real heat. For so long the media has been asleep and I’m sure Gibbs was blindsided by these real questions instead of the prepackaged ones that the media up until now has been allowing. It does my heart good to see the media finally getting tough. I hope to see more in the future.

    • Billy Wells

      Yes the media needs to get tough on the people put into power no matter if it’s the President or Congress. For 8 years they never asked the real questions and the American public was in the dark because the adminastration had a strangle hold on them. Now finally maybe someone will start asking real questions. But don’t want a repeat of the last 8 years.

      • Patricia Henson

        Yes, the last 8 years have been bad enough but Obama is running off with this country and I agree with most people about him not being an American citizen so as such the country doesn’t belong to him to take off with. It’s amazing the speed with which he is getting the bills passed that are surely taking rights away from the American people. Alot of people are getting their information from the media and if they are being told wrong then they will make wrong decisions. I don’t blame the voters entirely, I just think that we give the media too much power. I think we have to be careful on who we listen to.

    Obama is no more than a figure head. He is not a president for the people. He is working for people like Soros. He is making people like Al Gore rich on green companies. While the poor and the middle class suffermore and more each day.

    He doesn’t believe he has to answer to the people who elected him. or the press. Maybe he had more help from Acorn and they work for him. He was allowed to lie so much and was never once called on about it. ABC helped him 100%.Gibbs is nothing but a gate keeper. A real jerk. He tries intimiadating the press. They are afraid if they make him mad he will put them at the back of the room where they can’t ask questions.

    The town hall was nothing but a performance that they are hopeing the people will believe. The lady that had kidney cancer worked for the Obama’s campaign and it was the second time she was on. He acted like he never talked to her before. He is such an actor. He has a hard time talking without his telapromter. So he has to know the questions before hand so they can be put on his telapromter.

    His overseas speeches on y-tube you are not allowed to comment on because he is so proud of what he is doing overseas while destroying the USA. If USA was so bad before Obama why have so many people trying to get in to the USA?

    Obama’s teaching are the doctrine of Saul Alinsky. He will go down in history as the president that made us become part of a global nation. The dollar will be worth nothing so will will be willing to go with one currency. There will be little left to usa by the time he bankrupts us. PLease think about what he is doing. He will take our freedom from us.

      I am starting to feel the beginnings of terror every time Obama get on TV to give another of his ongoing campaign presentations. This man is a puppet of George Soros (who financed his campaign) who hates the US and is determined to change the US into a socialistic country thru Move on .org., Acorn, etc. To discourage free speech from our press is only the beginning if we all continue with this apathy we as a country possess. I am glad the press is finally thru romancing Obama and starting to question his policies….perhaps we still have time to stave off the proposed health care package which is truly a disaster which will delay and deny health care based on a formula of the government’s choice.

        You are right to be concerned. Useful idiots of almost every ilk have converged on Washington to force B O’s healh care ‘reform’ lunacy on an unwilling nation. What kind of a ‘leader’ would expect us to endure laws that are inherently anti-American, pc and immoral? This is the opposite of leadership. This is the same insanity that gave WWII Russia a ‘leader’ who tried to conquer the world.
        B O seems intent on ‘blessing’ us with programs created by Lenin, Marx and Stalin. Rats on a sinking ship would get a better deal than what’s on the horizon for America. Those who support B O’s plans have traded their credibility and
        self-respect for a handful of tin-plated silver and a pat on the head.

    HI all, the following comment may not have anythiing to do with this discussion but I want anyone and everone to read this
    A big fat amen to this school teacher

    Mr. Obama:
    I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your
    recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate
    representative of the United States of America collectively or of me
    personally.
    You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that
    you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United
    States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United
    States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on
    earth.
    I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the
    United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their
    status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the
    Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of
    Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all
    about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
    Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does
    not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the
    Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country
    was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this
    country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage.
    Do you not understand this?
    Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans.
    Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi
    Arabia . You don’t show Great Britain, our best and one of our oldest
    allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi
    Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
    You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation
    because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a
    mosque in Turkey .. You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the
    Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from
    themselves. What’s the matter with you?
    I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the
    historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of
    yourselves, all of you.
    You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American
    automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this
    situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie
    Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about
    them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
    What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to
    their staff members – on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises
    that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a
    17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You
    haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!
    Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in
    bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the
    AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded
    $51 million – not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you
    expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the
    economic mess we have right now.
    I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not
    caring about what you idiots do.
    We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up
    with all of you.
    I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you
    do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities.
    I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a
    chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
    Sincerely,
    Every real American
    P.S. I rarely ask that emails be ‘passed around’………….PLEASE SEND
    THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST……it’s past time for all Americans to wake up!

CHIP REID WHERE TREATED VERY RUDE BY OBAMAS ROBERT GIBBS.

  • eddyjames

    he reminds me of a kid caught with their hand in the cookie jar. Gibbs got caught fixing a town hall meeting, packing the crowd with pro Obama people asking known questions, I guess the teleprompter in chief can’t provide answers to unknown questions, spin has to be placed on the answers in advance. what a bunch of asses. we tried to warn you about these clowns. Don’t you miss George yet?
