I believe that it is now “uncivil” to use the word “bomb”.

For goodness sakes. I simply cannot watch the video. All of this is happening way too fast for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I CANNOT wait until He arrives once more, it’s just all of this is sometimes too much for me.

Bush will be blamed when, billions of years from now, the entropy heat-death of the universe occurs.

blamed Bush just ten minutes into his first press briefing

It's probably written into the Official Obama WH Press Secretary Manual: "When in doubt, blame Bush." "When backed into a corner, blame Bush." "When you don't know the answer, blame Bush."

This guy looks like a complete lightweight who knows his job is to shill for Obama, but you are right that he can only look like an idiot when he is forced to defend the Obama line that at some point Obama's budget "does not add to the debt" when in fact it DOES add to the debt. These guys are so lost in their Orwellian double-speak that the result is painful to watch.

I agree. What this video shows is the superhuman, near-Clintonian skill of Robert Gibbs.

Bashing Bush is a religion to the left; it's like in Church when something profound is said, the congregations say "Amen"...the left says "blame Bush" in the same sense of the word.

Blaming Bush at this late date is a throwaway phrase - something you say to cover up the fact that you don't have a freakin' clue what you are talking about.

Palin Bashing is the next-in-line.

The MSM - the spotlight of truth about public education - use bashing Bush as their teleprompTer...something to write about when trying to overcome writers' block.

They won't stop, until, the right stops re-acting to it. It's like a wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl...done for attention and reaction.

52% of the voters thought that He had indeed returned, what with all the fawning and auras around his head. The way that he acted, who can blame them for being confused.

That said, I am glad that the new guy bombed his first day out. I hope he bombs tomorrow, too. And the next day and all the days after that. He will put an accurate face on the administration that is bombing.

McCurry, Gibbs, and now Carney. I think it's an actual strategy. The idea is to get a press secretary who's so dimwitted and incompetent that everything he says is deniable, so as to minimize any accountability of the administration when they want to change their story. "Oh, that was just Carney being Carney! Heh, heh! What we really meant was . . . ."

To be a decent press secretary you practically have to know more than your principle.

Now, with Obama, that shouldn’t be that hard.

But, this guy has two strikes right out of the gate:

a) Obama’s policies are incomprehensible.

b) He’s not even as bright as Obama.

Looks highly qualified to this WH.

We can nickname him “Woodstock”, the little bird that chatters unintelligibly in the Charlie Brown cartoons.

He is as lame as I thought he would be.

I believe his 1st day reflects his future. barry couldn’t find his way out of a paper bag, let alone run a country as great as ours.

I just wonder when we can stop him before it’s too late.

In other words, he's the perfect personification for this regime.

Blaming Bush admits that Bush at least had a policy and could find Iran on the map - light years ahead of anything I've seen from the 0bama regime.

How is that possible? If it is possible, how much ‘moderate’ compensation Obama’s paying this guy?

>>> ...the Official Obama WH Press Secretary Manual: “When in doubt, blame Bush.” “When backed into a corner, blame Bush.” “When you don’t know the answer, blame Bush.”

The one and only Genuine Obama Manual. It propelled Obama’s rise into WH, it has been enshrined into two tablets.
