[Obama Press Secretary] Robert Gibbs Is Being Kind of a Jerk About the Bowing Thing (With Video)
New York Magazine ^ | April 10, 2009 | Dan Amira

Posted on 04/10/2009 5:59:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Because the White House's first explanation about President Obama's bow to King Abdullah — that he was bending down to shake hands — would only make sense if Obama were nine feet tall, CNN reporter Dan Lothian brought up the controversy again yesterday, this time to press secretary Robert Gibbs. Surely, once the White House had time to reflect on the fact that we have actual video of the moment in question, they would admit that the president had indeed bowed as a simple show of respect to an international counterpart, blamed the "shaking hands" excuse on a well-meaning White House aide, and moved on. But instead Gibbs stuck to the far-fetched story, even sassily dismissing Lothian for asking about something that happened a whole week ago and that Americans weren't even concerned about because they were too busy losing their jobs. Of course, it wouldn't still be a story if Gibbs and company weren't insulting our intelligence with outlandish fairy tales.

They think we're all morons: Since 53% of American voters pulled the lever for Lord Zero, maybe they have a point!

He was bending over to shake hands with Sen. Babara Mikulski.

Gibbs is just regurgitating what Rahm Emanuel and Greg Craig Greg are shoving down his throat.

Reporter: "What's the deal about him bowing?"

Gibbs: "That's old news."

Reporter: "People are still talking about it."

Gibbs (pointing behind the reporter): "Look! It's the Goodyear blimp!"

I wonder if Gibbs practices his lies in the mirror before he performs.

Since 53% of American voters pulled the lever for Lord Zero

The question is: What percentage of that number were illegal ACORN votes that stole the election and misrepresented the will of the People?

Stupid doesn’t even understand ‘all men are created equally’, Ødumba, don’t ever bow to another man when you represent the USA on my dime, my service, and those others who pay taxes, and have serve now and before me, quit your job and do it on your own time, besides, we’d be better off if Biden took over(never in a million years would I believe I could seriously say that)

the white house has just insulted thos e journalists who go to the white house and has insulted every American

Yet these journalists are totally that dumb that they are not even aware of this

another thing’

has anyone, I mean anyone ever seen the American president laughed at to his face, EVER?

I say this because this is the first time I have ever seen the president laughed at to his face. Look at Sarkozy and other leaders they are laughing at him and most probably thinking what a complete idiot

The the king is probable thinking what a dumb arse we have this fool .

Then the journalists should be pointing this out along with the question DID YOU KISS HIS HAND AND HOW DO YOU SERIOUSLY EXPECT US TO BELIEVE YOU WHEN THE VIDEO SHOWS OTHER WISE?

Course journalist today do not have a brain and are being insulted every day by the white house and they are just to dumb to figure it out

Mr President can you tell us about the pirates and the situation right now

er er er guys we are talking about housing.

FFS

Then this is from the same man who thinks we have 57 states and that Austrian is a language

and they said Bush was thick

the left are doing everything they can right now to hide all these gaff by their messiah, his wife and that loud mouth delusional vice president.

It’s better to just assume the exact opposite of what these idiots say. Using that as a guide has been the most accurate way of predicting Berry’s actions.

AGREED and I cannot say it loud enough

here in FL the GA media found that 100,000 voters from GA and OH voted in FL, when some were tracked down they were all liberals and blacks mostly blacks probably from ACORN who came up with one excuse after another when they were questioned

then think of all those north easterners who have vacation homos in this states and have in the past been caught voting here and yes all Dems

Then include the illegal lot

Look at the other states like PA and NH where republican observers were not allowed into the voting areas by the black panthers and radical left wing loons

Add onto the the illegal lot, even a CNN guy interviewed this guy and asked how the lines were voting and the guy says alright I have just finished voting for the second time .
CNN response was er OK and let it go instead of reporting the matter even though they had this on film

how does my state go conservative on every ballot question and yet vote for this buffoon even though I know of only two people voting for him .

easy it was so rigged

and lets not forget the pre paid credit cards which had millions and yet the GOP has still not blocked it or banned it .
yes we will face all those millions form overseas again in 4 years unless the GOP get some balls and sort this crap out

At some point even the dunces in the Left Wing Press are liable to revolt. Obama has been treating them like dirt, insulting them, refusing to let them ask questions, and excluding them from his White House parties.

Bill Clinton rewarded his supporters in the press, and punished anyone who worked against him. Obama has simply treated them all like dirt.

Notice that even CNN is beginning to get upset by this.

The British press has been slamming Obama regularly every day, even the most liberal newspapers. How long are the American press going to allow Obama to treat them like a bunch of servants who are beneath his notice?

Talk about “Upstairs, Downstairs.” Obama is the elitest snob the White House has ever seen. And he doesn’t even know how to do THAT right.
