Tapper Challenges Gibbs: "Isn't the Whole Point of being President to 'Man Up'"? - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | February 1, 2010 | Brian

Here is video of ABC News' Jake Tapper today challenging White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on his constant whining and blaming of Republicans for not supporting the Obama Agenda. After listening to this again from Gibbs, Tapper said:

"But isn't the whole point of being President and controlling the House and Senate to 'man up' and make these tough decisions whether or not it costs you at the ballot box in November?"

Everyone knows that the Democrats could have passed their entire agenda without a single Republican vote for a full year. It is the radical nature of the agenda, having angered the American people, that has kept the Democrats from ramming their full agenda through. . . . (VIDEO)

Wow. ABC best be careful, or they’ll lose the exclusive access to the White House and Obama hospitality they have enjoyed thus far (as well as the post-coital election love and snuggling).

During the late 1900’s, an estimated 50 percent of all Democrats were emasculated men called castrati.

Keep it up, Tapper. ABC also appears to be the first in the SRM to report a sliver of truth regarding the AGW hoax and the UN scammers.

Jake Tapper seems to be his own person. I can respect him just for being fair.

It worked with Fox. They successfully neutered major Garrett.

Tapper said the GOP acted "cravenly"?

I just lost a bunch of respect for you Jake.

They think people VOTED FOR SOCIALISM

They didn’t

They voted for some unkonwn ‘hope’ and ‘change’ without knowing what Obambi really had in mind

(Although we tried to tell them)

I noticed Tapper wasn't so "neutral". He, along with every other journalist, stood mute while Gibbs flat out lied about "budget cuts" as well as the cravenly comment.

It's like an alcoholic not taking his fourth scotch at 10 AM and people praising him for it.

How can he “man up” when he is only a boy?

Jake has the balls to state what many Americans desire to say. I truly wish the sick twisted pissant would come to the UP of MI. Upper Peninsula Michiganders would give him a true taste of Yooper hospitality. Many Yoopers still have an outhouse sitting in the backyard

I think about the most Obama could do would be to metrosexual up.

That set a new standard for incoherence, even for Gibbs.

Does OBOZO even qualify as a Boy? We haven’t seen a Legitimate Birth Certificate yet determining that in fact a Male was the Sex! and the effeminate gestures and actions certainly indicate otherwise!.........(=^_^=)
