Does the White House Press Secretary need a teleprompter too?
Watch as Robert Gibbs sets a new Obama Administration record (and thats saying something) for the most uhs and ums in a single sentence as he struggles to find the right spin to explain why Treasury Secretary knew all about the AIG bonuses a week before telling us this week that he was just as surprised as the rest of us (full story with video at Hot Air)

Nah. He’ll just go back to calling on pre selected journalists with pre selected questions.
Gibbs is a train wreck, but I hope he stays for entertainment purposes.
If he was the best of the lot, I shudder to think of what the audition process looked like.
I remember those cartoons...
Only 3 years and 10 months to go.
I miss them on TV. All that’s on now is Tom & Jerry. That gets boring after a week or two.
Gibbs: “Uh, well, uh, that, well, uh, is, uh...what was the question again?”
Yea, those cartoons were great, the truth is they have been BANNED due to violence and not PC. I have alot of them, and they are labeled as banned. It is a sad world.
I can’t believe there isn’t a drinking game for everytime he says, “Umm....”
Do you really believe the Kenyan will last that long?

Please go read the newspapers. The teleprompter in chief and I just want to eat our waffles
Someone needs to type out a transcript of this...you’d wear out the “uh” key!
It is good that Tony Snow is not here to see what a buffoon that Gibbs is. Tony anticipated just about every question that the White House reporters threw at him. I miss Tony!
Some of them are downloadable on iTunes.
Would make great rap lyrics and I dont even like rap music!

He says, “Chip, go out and buy a paper”. Knowing full well the paper proves the WH was misleading or lying. He can’t bring himself to tell the truth himself.
Does anyone have a Ricola?
He’s trying to make Obama look good. Obama says “uh” 5 times in a row, so Gibbs says it 6 times.
I agree that he sucks as a press secretary. However, it has to be very difficult to continuously lie for Obama.
When the first lie is told all of the other lies have to fall in line. One of the biggest problems with lying is that it takes a really good memory. Trying to maych up all of the Obama lies is near-about impossible.
WATERBURY, Conn. - From a rundown garage near an abandoned factory in the south end of town comes the sound of squawking resonating in the night. It's an odd noise....But police in Waterbury knew exactly what they were dealing with. It was another cockfight............
Hearing the news, Rahm Emanuel sprang into action. Rahm instructed Gibbs to send a memo to Barney Frank: "Uh, stay home, Barney. Uh, this is not what you think it is."
Unfortunately, it came too late. Barney had already left a message for Chris Dodd ......saying that he could not wait to see Dodd's (cough) package.
Yes, it has to be a very difficult job, both lying for Premier 0, keeping track of the continual lies, flip-flops and contradictions, while answering to reporters who are beginning to come to grips with the sham being perpetrated on us.
EDDIE HASKELL, TREASURY SECRETARY
"You look wonderful today, President Obama. And how is your tall wife, our lovely First Lady?"
"And those adorable children you sired when you finally managed to nail the fem/lib in the sack?"
The teleprompter is taking on a life of its own!
"It's Rahm---he sez no matter what happens keep smiling. "
"And don't forget to joke about your bowling on Leno. "
"Rahm sez that will help endear you to all the working class peons who'll be paying all the taxes."
OK! Rules! Where’s the pic of Baghdad Bob. It has to be posted in every post about Gibbs!
If I get this right... there are some great threads on the teleprompter keyword list...

This is a video of someone who is clearly uncomfortable with answering the question.
His only answer is “read the report”. Then he ridicules the reporter by saying, “Do I have to go get you the report?” As if the reporter has the problem. This was certainly not an open or friendly press meeting. Looks like the press is getting kicked to the curb on this one.
It's going to be a long four years for the White House press, LOL.
No more alcohol :(
