Does Robert Gibbs Really Speak For Obama On Iraq?
There’s so much hype around about President Obama being a great communicator. The mainstream media has crowed about it a lot, and the teleprompter tells us so. So, if we’re to believe that Obama is such a silver-tongued orator, we should question why the White House hired someone like Robert Gibbs to serve as press secretary.
Gibbs is prone to sticking his foot in his mouth, and he’s been rude to both reporters and Capitol Hill staffers. Notably, he’s been known to not answer questions, instead issuing non-answers or brushing the questions off. So it’s fascinating that an administration that loves to tout itself as transparent and that is led by Mr. “Let Me Be Clear” himself would allow someone like Gibbs to speak for it.
