Awfully strange. I mean.. his priorities are always in the right place.

Maybe they were all white guys.
The unrelenting call of the golf course? ...the call of White House parties? ...the call of preening in front of a mirror? This nobama is a busy man.
has Gibbs EVER answered a question?
Probably busy writing an executive order to forbid Colorado from leaving the Big 12, or perhaps busy working on a coverup for the ACORN employees’ claims of voter fraud.
A few days ago Rush’s stand-in (Mark ?) mentioned that the families of the victims were to be invited to the White House for memorial services. One of the mothers was prepared to give a speech stating that the proper way to memorialize the victims is to not proceed with the moratorium. Can’t have that on camera.
I think he’d made prior arrangements with Larry Sinclair.
I think it’s more appropriate to meet privately with or make a call to the families if the president absolutely thinks it’s necessary to express sympathy.... Be discreet about it. Otherwise I think it’s just opportunism.
I know that if I were a grieving family member the last thing I’d want was the service being bogged down with the baggage of a presidential visit.
Perhaps I’ve missed some news articles, but I doubt it.
Seems to me there hasn’t been diddly-squat presented other than the statistic of eleven about the personnel killed during the explosion, fire, and sinking of that oil rig.
Don’t those eleven people rate some sort of acknowledgement for having lived on this Earth, and in America?
I guess life means nothing to the Liberal news media anymore. Eleven killed is just like reporting statistics of aborted babies. Just numbers to the Left. Just numbers.
They all probably told him to go **** himself.
AMEN.....it is NEVER mentioned that 11 people died...bodies still missing, I believe....NOTHING!
Gibbs doesn’t answer “hypothetical” questions, doncha know.
Obama doesn’t want to be associated with the disaster.
Gibbs has to be the worst presidential press spokesperson in the history of the world.
I believe you are right.
The narcissist probably couldn't bear a repeat performance.
Presidentin' is a lot harder than community agitatin'.....
You must admit Barry makes his job almost impossible. Gibbs is nothing but a front man who does what he’s told to do. What would you do? Clearly if he speaks out of turn thats the end of him. Barry will just find another stooge from his stable of koolaid drinkers. Hey, Im sure Gibbs is being paid plenty to play Barry’s fool.
I dunno - the odious turncoat Scott McLellan comes to mind. Bad enough that he was as articulate as a rock, but after he was replaced by Dana Perino, he went out and wrote a tell-all book about the Bush White House. Happily, the book ended up in the $.99 cent bin at Borders.
