Skip to comments.Robert Gibbs reveals Obama so enraged over BP oil spill, he actually said 'Damn!'

When it comes to the BP oil spill disaster, the White House press corps wants blood and raw emotion.
They want President Obama to throw a tantrum worthy of being featured in a Coors Light commercial.
Think Dennis Green. Or Jim Mora ...
They don't want Tom Landry or Tony Dungy. They want Ditka. Even better Hurricane Ditka.
You could tell that on Tuesday at the White House ... Robert Gibbs was repeatedly asked about President Obama's robotic or perhaps Vulcan-like response toward the oil spill.
"Have you seen the President enraged about this?" asked one reporter.
"Throughout this process, absolutely."
"Do you think that that has come through to the American people?" the reporter followed.
"I think the American people are frustrated. I think the people of the Gulf are frustrated. I think the President is frustrated. I think the White House is frustrated. I dont see how anybody could look at whats happening in the Gulf and not be frustrated and heartbroken -- absolutely," Gibbs said.
Expect a follow-up? Yep. Don't say frustrated and heartbroken when the reporters are talking about rage. They aren't asking him to write a country song. They want to know about jugular-popping, chair-flinging across the Oval Office, Bobby Knight-like rage.
"You said earlier that the President is enraged. Is he enraged at BP specifically?" asked CBS reporter Chip Reid.
"I think hes enraged at the time that its taken, yes," Gibbs answered. "I think hes been enraged over the course of this, as Ive discussed, about the fact that when youre told something is fail-safe and it clearly isnt, that thats the cause for quite a bit of frustration."
There he goes again. Gibbs mentions the word "frustrated" but reporters want to know about rage. Shirt-tearing, Lou Ferrigno exploding, Christian Bale screaming RAGE.

Liked it so much, had to post it twice.
Obambi also stomped his feet, screamed like a little girl, and went into a long pout. Lead he did not.
Damn then chuckled into the phone and said you are right/Wright the chickens are coming to roost.
Obama is so enraged that people are seeing first hand his lack of leadership in a crisis situation.
You are correct, but the MSM lemmings will let him get away with it.
He should hear what most Americans are saying. It isn’t “Damn”, “fooey” or “Oh fudge”.
Spreading it around....People need to read the information and make their own mind up.....BO’s friends may be hanging him out to dry....Then he’ll say more than “just damn!”

"Throughout this process, absolutely."
Very interesting links ... thank you!!
Well shucks! It must be purty bad then, you think?
The most emotion he has show so far... Too bad that it is misplaced. He really needs to get into Presidential mode and at least let the nation know that he is doing all he can (of course, in reality, that would be nothing regarding capping the well). What he should be doing is all he can in getting cleanup and further contamination actions going.
We all can wait for who is to blame. It’s too bad that Obama seems to think that coming out strong on blaming BP and threatening lawsuits is going to limit his exposure. What a do nothing dufus!
This is too much. What liars.
I didn’t even pay attention to Obama’s response today and when I was at the gym with the TV on mute watching CNN, I saw Paul Begala get up and point out how mad Obama was by pointing to lines in his forehead. It was a made for SNL skit.
These people are truly delusional and Obama is absolutely getting killed in the polls on this one. I hope the Republicans continue to point out he has no control over this and has never had control of it.
I am ashamed to admit that I have said a few more cuss words since the election. Every dang day he does something that is destructive to our country.
Plug the damn hole BP! You’re makin’ me look bad.
