What? Gibbs Says Midterm Election About "Local Issues" And Not Obama
RealClearPolitics ^ | October 17, 2010 | RealClearPolitics

"There's an excitement about what this president is trying to do," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said about his predictions that Democrats will retain the House and Senate.

"We're the beneficiary of a lot of political real estate after 2006 and 2008 that haven't been held by Democrats for a long period of time," Gibbs said, seeming to hedge his bet.

The ‘Local Issues” are that Obama has destroyed the economy, stolen our freedom, and enslaved us for generationsto come.

Nice try, PigBoy Gibbs.

It was so obvious that they would try this. The big news on Nov 3 will be that the massive Democrat defeat all across the country was not a referendum on Obama.

They will fool no one.

I don’t know how the reporters in the room avoid side-splitting laughter when this fool speaks. I know, most are firmly entrenched in the Obama camp. But this is some funny stuff!

Gibbs, the glib!!! What a waste of a human being this character is. Shucks, I would not let that moron/buffoon take my garbage out. Now Joe Biden, without challenge, is the dumbest human being in the universe, but Gibbs is right up there with him. These people from Obama on down are absolutely worthless!!! Hopefully, a large number of their Democrat Party cohorts will be flushed down the toilet on election day right into the sewer where they so rightfully belong!!! REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!!

Especially the sitting Democrats who will have just gotten fired. It will be interesting to see if they remain obedient cannon fodder, or stiff BO back during the lame duck session.

Seriously, do we expect another answer. This administration has taken responsibility for nothing. Why should they start now.

"There's an excitement about what this president is trying to do," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said...

If you're using the same definition of "excitement" that I'm using,Bobby,I agree with ya.And that "excitement" is gonna cost you scumbags 55 seats in the House and,just maybe,10 in the Senate!

Putting out the talking points early. When the dems lose they can say it wasn’t about obama. Then he can get pelosi and reid to push a bunch of crap through during the lame duck session. Prepare for a tax increase in January.

We are getting very excited. We have an opportunity to show the world just how much we hate the obambat and his storm troopers in the congress.
This will demonstrate just how much we detest the bat boys socialist agenda and set the stage for ejecting him from the peoples house in 2 years.
I will greet everyone I know with the simple statement. He has to go.
The Obombat's narcissistic mega ego will never except that anyone could possibly not worship at his feet.
Get that socialist the he!! our of the peoples house.

Such a comment is totally meant to deflect the failure of this pathetic, immature, revenge bent administration.

It kinda makes me sick that the spokesman for our White House would lie like this to the press in order to get this absolutely ludicrous statement out there to his fellow countrymen.

He stands there KNOWING that most of us hate the death care crap, the horrific spending and the stimulus crap that seems to go only to democratic donors.

THIS ELECTION IS ABOUT LOCAL ISSUES? What a pig you are Gibbs. You don't twist the truth to your countrymen unless you are without core values. You must also hate America, like your boss and his wife apparently do. They sure picked the right mouth to spew their sickness.

Shame on Gibbs for this untrue statement. I wonder when he looks in the mirror if he sees a liar willing to attempt to fool his nation for political motivations. And if he does see this pathetic image, I wonder if he is proud of being what he considers a worthy liar, or if he is as deeply ashamed as he should be. Hitler could has used this liar, for sure.

Wonder if anyone in the press challenged this statement or if, being either too stupid to see the idiocy of it or to in bed with uhbama's drive to flip America into a socialist state the press simply passed on the big lie

.When you do not have a core value system, ambition always rules.

Would someone please call a Medic to rescue Mr. Gibbs from his public display of Psychosis.

This is Gibbs throwing in the towel.

In one brief statement he backhandedly admits that Obama is despised and that there is no way to spin Obama’s performance to improve its popularity.

The Gibmeister must be channeling Tip O'Neil: "All politics is local".

It's true. If you or your neighbor is out of work, it's local.
If you lose or have your health insurance double, it's local.
If your business is drowning in regulation, it's local.

And when you go down to your local precinct to vote your Democrat Congressman out, it's local.

I think Gibbs was instructed by his boss to make this comment.

Nice try, Fat Boy, but America knows the truth (except for those few remaining Kool-Ade drinking loonies).

I saw that presser on TV.

Did anyone else see Gibbs passing out his resume to the reporters? Guess a guy can’t start networking too early in this terrible Bush economy.

This tells me that they know huge losses are coming, he’s now in protect Obama mode and trying to set the stage for spinning that the loss in November is not a rejection of Obama.
