Skip to comments.White House's Gibbs has mastered art of speaking with his hand

For Democrats, the only good thing to come from Tuesday's loss of the Senate election in Massachusetts is this: It could wipe the grin off Robert Gibbs's face.
The Democrats' failed struggle to hold onto Ted Kennedy's seat in the liberal state showed how badly the party's brand had been damaged over the past year. But as the White House press corps challenged President Obama's press secretary on Tuesday afternoon about the anticipated loss, Gibbs answered with his usual mix of wisecracks and insults.
"Broadly speaking, can you talk about the difference between 59 and 60 votes in the Senate and what that means for the president's agenda this year?"
"Broadly, it's one," Gibbs answered.
Will Obama hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss the results?
"Be here around 10 a.m. If we're not here, start without us."
"Is there something you could have done better," asked Sheryl Stolberg of the New York Times, so that "you wouldn't be in the situation that you're in right now?"
"Sheryl," Gibbs replied, "I'll read this transcript and think there's things that I could have done better." No doubt.

What a jackass!
i would fire him and start over
Oh, that was his hand?
I thought it was his one good eye winking at America from behind the podium..
Speaking? Is that what they call it these days??
Note to Wash press corps: fear The Hand, you uns don’t know where it’s been.
Scoot McClellan looked like a high school poser as Press Secretary. He looked professional in comparison to this joke
What a punk. Where does Obama dig up bums like this? But, on those counts, I guess he fits right in with this bunch.
They don’t call him Dr. Gibboels for nothing. The lies and obfuscation just come naturally.
Comes from the daily WH circle jerks.
Looking forward to the day when this arrogant ass has his balloon popped.
Pass the popcorn!
The press has put up with him all this time. Do you think they have had enough of his antics? They should insulted.
This moron appointed by failed POTUS Obama outranks VP Joe Biden as the dumbest human being on the face of the earth. Obama has not made one good appointment to any office since he was elected. These people that Obama surrounds himself never worked a real day in their entire lives!!!! And....they all have one thing in common, they hate America and the common folk that make this country great and number one in the world!!!!
Gibbs is a total a-hole. Not just an idiot like Scott McClellan, not just a wise-ass like Clinton’s spokesmen, but a stupid, arrogant, a-hole. I’m surprised even RAT reporters put up with his act.
