Barack Obama's senior campaign adviser Robert Gibbs certainly didn't expect this question when he agreed to go on CBS's Face the Nation Sunday.
Right out of the gate host Bob Schieffer pressed his guest about all the negative ads the President's campaign is running until he finally asked, "Whatever happened to hope and change?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BOB SCHIEFFER: You know one of the refreshing changes when, when the President was elected, he talked about hope and change. Whatever happened to hope and change? Now, it seems he is just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads that all campaigns seem to think are the basis of all campaigns now.
Granted this is an isolated incident, but isn't it refreshing to see a liberal media member like Schieffer actually ask one of the President's top advisers such a question?
Might we see more of this in the coming months, or was this the kind of honesty you only get on a long holiday weekend when very few people are anywhere near a television set?
On the other hand, if folks like Schieffer rather than buying into and disseminating candidate Obama's bogus hope and change mantra would have grilled the junior senator in 2008 about what his actual plan was as well as his qualifications for seeing it implemented, maybe the Face the Nation host wouldn't be asking this question today?
President Purple Lips is in deep doo-doo. I HOPE there is Change.
Bob, you genius, it never was. It was empty words, and perception created by you in the MSM, and a gullible public.
You know one of the refreshing changes when, when the President was elected, he talked about hope and change.
The masses have short memories. Clinton was the Man from Hope, and “It’s Time for a Change”.
I kinda wanted to hear Heir Gibbs answer, but its not good to have blood shooting out of my eyes on memorial weekend.
Better not to know.
Obama doing an impression of Stan Laurel! Thanks for posting it!
I have to agree. Now...if it was Carney, I’d have to take a listen.
He is the comic relief of this administration. Nobody, and I mean nobody, can tell the huge whoppers he tells with such a straight face. He must be botox enhanced.
Or Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden after being backed into a corner by his TV wife......Hammina-hammina-hammina!

I think Schieffer was projecting a little bit.... Hoping that idiot Gibbs would tell him the administration will reinvent the magic from 2008 ....
Wow. An adult looking like a five year old kid pretending to be an adult. It would make an amusing (or perhaps sad) youtube video....if it was not the person in charge of our troops.
Lord above... Please save us from this childish man.
Bob, Wake up and smell the roses, it was like everything that crosses mac daddies lip, it was a giant lie.
Hope and Change was last seen trying to catch a return trip from the kids' spring break in Mexico, but was unfortunately detained at the border.
“I HOPE there is Change.”
That’s what I was about to say.
“Hope and change” will always be in the minds of the American people. EMK called it “the dream.” It will never happen, but the people still think it can and will. They will continually fool themselves.
