Ellison calls for resignation of White House press secretary Gibbs
minnesotaindependent.com ^ | August 10 2010 | Luke Johnson

Posted on 08/10/2010 1:20:47 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

Rep. Keith Ellison called for the resignation of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs after he said the “professional left” would only be satisfied with the Obama administration after “we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon.”

In an interview with The Hill, Gibbs vented further: “I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested.” On people who said that President Obama was too centrist, he said, “They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.”

Rep. Ellison told The Huffington Post, “This is not the first time that Mr. Gibbs has made untoward and inflammatory comments and I certainly hope that people in the White House don’t share his view that the left is unimportant to the presiden. I understand him having some loyalty to the president who employs him, but I think he’s walking over the line.”

Ellison said that Gibbs’ resignation was warranted. “That’d be fair, because this isn’t the first time. And, again, people of all political shades worked very hard to help the president become the president. Why would he want to go out and deliberately insult the president’s base? And why would he confuse legitimate critique with some sort of lack of loyalty.

Right..I was just going to post that he probably wants some Muslim, or Muslim friendly in that Press Sec. position.

Keith Eillson is another Muslim desperately trying to undermine American values, laws, and constitution. Ellisom is part and parcel of CAIR - who is he to call for anyone’s resignation......he is NOT to be trusted ever! He is Islamic, hardly an American - he is the enemy within in full dress ready to bestow Sharia Law on asleep-at-the-wheel Americans. Who elected him? Muslims.

On people who said that President Obama was too centrist, he said, “They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.”

They wouldn't be satisfied if Karl Marx himself were in the White House. Nothing is Left enough for them.

Gibbs is just too painful to watch - if’n I do- his body language (pushing eyeglasses back etc.,) is so telling.

He may have reached the end of the roadie as a toadie.

Agreed.

Gibbs just announced that the 0bama administration is now officially running to the right for the elections.

The more grief the left squalls into the media the better for both them and zer0.

Don’t buy the lies of the racist marxist left.

I still wonder what the “dirty tricks” were that the homosexual activist sounded off on when he blogged about how the Obama Administration was ignored all he had done (and given) for them.

Ellison is only peeved because this time, Gibbs went after the Left, but if Nancy Pelosi or Rahm Emanuel want Gibbs gone, he’ll be looking for fame and fortune elsewhere, be sure of that, and it’s a distinct possibility. Gibbs has a thankless job.

For those not familiar with him, Keith Ellison is a MUSLIM representative from Minnesota.

His first official act as a representative was to call the security at the House of Representatives like a crybaby, because some republican was smoking cigars.

"Hate it when I end up having to side with Gibbs."

Really? I hate it when I end up having to side with Ellison. Even a blind pig can find an acorn once in a while.

The Deranged Left thought Bobo was bought and paid for by them, but they're too lazy (and afraid) to look where the bulk of the $750 million actually came from.

Ellison types instinctively know when the cops have been called and the party's over, and their party is over in November.

A lot of conservatives are created by fringe leftists who aren’t satisfied with people who only agree with 80-90% of their agenda. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gibbs is a freeper in a couple of of years.
