A local politician is making national headlines again.

U.S. Representative Alan Grayson attacked recent comments by President Barack Obama’s head press secretary.

"I don't think he should resign. He should be fired. People have referred to him as bozo the spokesman,” Grayson said.

Press secretary Robert Gibbs was recently quoted in “The Hill” magazine saying, “I hear these people saying [the President] is like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested. They will be satisfied when we have Canadian health care and we've eliminated the Pentagon. That's not reality. They wouldn't be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president."

Gibbs was referring to liberal criticism of the current administration.

Grayson, who is known for his outbursts on the floor and in the press, didn’t hold back.

"He's so far in over his head. He would have to reach up to touch his shoes,” Grayson said of Gibbs. "He's not conveying the value of the president's plans or his programs. He's doing a miserable job -- it's that simple."

The Orlando politician is the second congressional democrat to call for Gibbs’ resignation.

Grayson is colorful. Hopefully the voters in his district won’t be as amused as the rest of the country come November.

I’ve got a nice pair of duelling pistols in the safe if these bozos want to settle their differences.

Grayson calling someone a “bozo” just seems to be more than a bit ironic to me.
