White House dismisses new low in Obama approval ratings
The Hill ^ | 12/8/2009 | Sam Youngman

Posted on 12/08/2009 7:50:03 AM PST by markomalley

A White House spokesman dismissed polling that shows President Barack Obama's approval rating at a new low.

A Gallup poll released Monday showed Obama’s overall approval rating dropped to 47 percent -- the lowest during his presidency.

On Tuesday morning White House press secretary Robert Gibbs compared the poll to a child's art work.

Gibbs was specifically referring to the trend line, which shows Obama's approval ratings declining. Gibbs noted "a six year-old with a crayon could do something a lot like that."

Funny, that was my thought on the global warming hockey stick graphs.

Gibbs, of course, is an expert on being a six-year-old.

Someday soon (hopefully sooner than later) those lines will touch, cross and keep going.

“a six year-old with a crayon could do something a lot like that.”

He should not talk about his boss like that.

If anyone should know what it’s like to be a six year old with a crayon, it’s you, Gibbs, and your traitor President.

Why is it that the ‘Pubs always have bedwetters like Scott McClellan and Marlin Fitzwater as press spokesmen and the ‘Dems always have nasty little weasels like Mike McCurry and Gibbs.

Standard operating procedure from President Axelrod and his acolytes, Rahmbo and Urkel (the guy in the nice suit who raises his chin and then reads things from the Teleprompter).

Denounce any critics or negative news as either:
a. irrelevant or stupid (in this case)
b. evil (Fox news, all of Wall Street, health insurance companies, Rush Limbaugh,conservative talk radio, etc.)
c. evil republicans (teabaggers, astroturf, etc.)
d. racists

"A six year-old with a crayon could do something a lot like that"

Is this satire? I.e., poking fun of how Gibbs disrespected the female reporter who asked about the WH Social Secretary by comparing her to a petulant child (actually _his_ petulant child)... Or did he really say this?

These days it's so hard to tell...

Is Gibbs saying the people polled are six year olds, because that is where the data for the graph came from? The only word I can think of to describe this bunch is ‘hubris’. They are in their own world, completelydetached from reality.

Gibbs is a blithering idiot. His smarmy and condescending dismissal of the Gallup poll, calling it crayon artwork, is beneath the dignity of the Office of President.

And to think, we taxpayers are paying this man to make such bizarre and stupid comments in the name of the Oval Office.

Polls don't matter.

He Won!

He is redistributing as fast as he can and once redistributed it is gone forever. The suckers who lost the money are screwed.

There is no retribution, the robbery is over and done

And a six-year-old child with a crayon would be a better president.
