Gibbs forgot to lie. Surely Obama will reprimand him for this gaffe.

The Chicago goon squad has never had issues with telling lies.
Obama refused to meet with Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu but found the time to go on The View, David Letterman and to attend a fundraiser with a drug dealer turned rapper, Jay-Z. The priorities of a failed president.

When all else fails, O-bots blame Bush. It’s hard to explain the record number of unemployed college graduates under President hope & change. 50% of college graduates are UNEMPLOYED.
From College Insurrection:
The old favorite standby excuse of the Obama Administration. When all else fails, blame Bush. I think America’s college students are much smarter than that. Report below by John Rossomando of Red Alert Politics.
Youth enthusiasm for President Obama is nowhere near where it was in 2008 because of decisions made during the Bush years, according to Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs, who appeared this morning on CNN’s State of the Unionwith Candy Crowley.
Crowley asked Gibbs about the reasons for the President’s weakened support among young Americans under 30 who voted for Obama by a 66 percent margin in 2008. Recent polling suggests that number has fallen to 48 percent today.
“This is not 2008,” Gibbs said. “What’s happened since then is that we’ve had a series economic calamities caused by bad decisions made before the president ever got there.”
This is pretty much all Team Obama has besides their typical “blame Bush” defense. Things could be worse if Obama gets another 4 years.
Notice every O-bot stutters and stammer when confronted with the truth?
Yes, in ObamaCare, unelected physicians, who believe like Obama, will be responsible for making the choices. Remember Obama stating that you should take the inexpensive pill over the expensive surgery?
The IPAB is the “death panel” people warned about as Democrats passed their unread tax bill and laughed at Americans.
Paul Ryan spoke out about this 15 member death panel:
Obama’ college records, selective service card, medical records, student loan records, SAT score, LSAT score and client list still unavailable for public view.
From the LA Times:
“What’s important, if you are running for president, is that the American people know who you are and what you’ve done, and that you’re an open book,” Obama said in an interview at the White House with WMUR, a New Hampshiretelevision station. “And that’s been true of every presidential candidate dating all the way back to Mitt Romney’s father.”
Coming from the President who used executive privilege to hide documents on the Fast & Furious scandal and who sealed his records from public view.
George Romney, a former Michigan governor and American Motors chief executive, released 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in 1968.
Obama’s remarks came as his reelection campaign is trying to get voters in New Hampshire and other crucial battleground states to see his Republican challenger as an unacceptable alternative, largely by raising doubts about Romney’s business background.
More smoke and mirrors to hide the terrible economic numbers and Obama’s record.
On Monday, Robert Gibbs, a senior advisor to Obama’s campaign, suggested that Romney’s refusal to release more than one year of tax returns raised questions about whether he would scale back overseas tax shelters as president.
Notice Democrats are always worried about other people’s money? What does it mean when a President fills his cabinet with tax cheats? That raises questions.
“I think the American people deserve to know: Why does Mitt Romney have a secret Bermuda corporation?” Gibbs told anchor Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” show. “Why does he have a bank account in Switzerland? Savannah, when I pick a bank, I pick one near my house because there’s an ATM that I can get cash out of it. I don’t think you’re picking a bank in Switzerland because there’s an ATM near your house.”
Is it illegal to have your money in overseas accounts? NOPE. Maybe Romney is hiding it from Obama’s greedy nicotine laced fingers.
The Republican National Committee’s communications director, Sean Spicer, responded on MSNBC that Romney had released enough tax records.
“I think that this is a distraction,” Spicer said. “They have bad jobs numbers, bad deficit numbers. The economy’s not doing well overall. Now they’re trying to distract everyone from focusing on the issues that they care about, because they know that their record from the last 3½ years isn’t something they want to talk about.”
Oh, they tried to spin it and hide the truth. It is a tax!
Americans should try to make Obama’s miserable presidency a a one-term deal. It’s obvious that Obama is in over his head and doesn’t like being a leader.
A new book about the Obama White House is gaining attention for some explosive exchanges between the east and west wings, including tension between Michelle Obama and her husband’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, and an expletive-laced scene in which former press secretary Robert Gibbs loses his temper over complaints about how he handled an issue concerning the first lady.
But the liberal media wants people to think Michelle is a classy lady who is above politics.
Taken as a whole, however, the 330 pages of “The Obamas” by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor leaves the impression of a first lady who is much more influential than the public has known and a Barack Obama who seems at times more enamored with the idea of having been president than with actually being president.
This has been proven by Obama’s feckless leadership where he passes off work to his cronies. Look at how he passed of the health care debate to Nancy Pelosi and how he ducked reducing the deficit by appointing his “deficit commission” (Bowles-Simpson), which he ignored.
Consider this passage: “What Obama really looked forward to, said his friends, was the period that followed the presidency, whenever it arrived,” Kantor writes. The president’s close friend, Eric Whittaker, says Mr. Obama talks about going back to walking in the streets and wandering around bookstores. Another close Obama friend, Marty Nesbitt, says the president has told him he will be able to accomplish a lot after leaving office “because he would finally be free of politics,” Kantor writes.
This is the same Dr. Eric Whittaker who was caught up in a federal probe and who was involved with Michelle Obama and the infamous “patient-dump scandal” that the media covered up while Obama ran for office.
Could of fooled me. For the past 2.5 years, all Democrats and Obama have done is blame Bush despite his economic number being superior to those of Obama.
From The Hill:
President Obama’s reelection campaign isn’t running against the specter of former President George W. Bush, said a top voice for the president’s 2012 team.
Robert Gibbs, the former White House press secretary-turned-campaign surrogate, accused the field of Republican presidential candidates of reviving the policies that caused the current economic difficulties. But that doesn’t mean the Obama campaign is running against Bush, Gibbs maintained.
“We’re not running against George W. Bush,” he said on MSNBC. “But many of the policies that got us into the mess that we’re trying to dig out of now are the same policies that the front-runners for the Republican nomination seek to go back to.
Lower deficits. Lower unemployment. Lower number on food stamps. Compare those numbers to Obama’s record deficits… Depression-era levels of long-term unemployment… Obama’s higher unemployment and record number of Americans on food stamps. Whose policies are creating the current mess?
“You’re going to have a choice between going forward or going backward to a lot of the problems that got us into this mess,” Gibbs said, referencing a top tier of GOP candidates that includes Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.). “I think there’s going to be a very clear choice in this election in 2012.”
