Gibbs: 'This Is the Worst Year of the Presidency' Daniel Halper December 22, 2013 9:33 AM
Robert Gibbs, President Obama's former press secretary, declared 2013 the worst year (so far!) of the Obama presidency:
"This is the test, Robert, of big progressive government solving a big societal problem," said NBC host David Gregory. "That's what he took on. That is the big project of his presidency."
"No doubt about it," Gibbs responded on Meet the Press. "I would say this is the worst year of the presidency. It does beat out 2011. But -- well, and especially given sort of where he started, the fact that the first year of the second term is historically the most productive of the second term."
I think it's pretty safe to say that this test will be failed. And then we have two paths open up:
1) A return to limited government, respect for the Constitution, and rebirth of individual freedom.
2) Full-on government control, open fascism, totalitarian system with no respect for rule of law.
"A time for choosing" as a great man once said.
Gibbs forgot to say ‘so far.’ Unfortunately, he is not able to say it is The Worst, only The Worst To Date.
Worst year for America too — at least in my lifetime.
Fortunately for Democrats, they have no moral principles, so they will busy themselves in 2014 with the task at hand: stealing the fall elections.
Their lapdog media will be right there with them, asking GOP candidates questions about women’s “health issues,” (baby killing and the slut life style), revving up their base of gullible voters one more time. That’s why Obumbles will have that big Alfred E. Newman “What? Me Worry?” grin by spring.
Today is supposed to be the final day to sign up for Obamacare or face a fine. I have just one question based on the performance of their website so far. How will they know?
Put all odumbo’s years together and it is worse than anything this country has experienced since the first civil war. (Note the word “first”) It could get a lot worse.
“THIS IS THE WORST YEAR OF THE PRESIDENCY”
Should be “This is the WORST PRESIDENCY EVER”.
As far as I’m concerned, Obama’s tenure as President should be called “America’s Black Plague.”

Gibbs, always, one for understating, it is the worst 5 years of the Pres__entcy.
If they had told the truth about Obamacare or not fudged the Unemployment numbers or didn’t cover up the masacre in Benghazi, poor Barry would not have had to endure this horrible year.
Sorry Gibbs, but every year that Obama has been President has been pretty crappy!
There are people who are really hurting out here and this administration could care less, except for getting their Marxist agenda rammed down the throats of regular Americans.
I don’t care how good or bad it has been for 0bama. It is the worst year for America in my soon to be 60 years on this earth. Screw 0bama.
Kenton: This Is the Worst Year of the Presidency so far...
2013 showed us the tip of the iceberg. 2014 shows a lot of potential for exposing the rest of the iceberg, with the House, and possibly the Senate, poised to drive Obama back into the sea.
I’m starting to think the Gibbs is a shill for the Klintons getting ready for 2016.

Now he should know how we have felt since he was elected.
Gibbs is just trying to get a Television gig, so he’s saying things that will get him hired.
Hey Gibbs, you stupid potato-faced drone - you need to get lawyered up and do a 100 page affidavit setting forth all of Bath House Barry’s high crimes and misdemeanors of which you have personal knowledge and evidence - and post it on the internet. Oh, I forgot, that would require the heart and courage of a patriot, and you’re no patriot, are you, Potato Face?
Does anyone think that mac daddy cares what people think about him?
His views himself so important and without any need to explain anything he does or says as meaningless to himself. His own self importance and giant ego places him way above anyone else. He views himself as not able to be wrong about anything and he feels that if people are getting close to dispelling that belief he sics his willing mindless sock puppets on them.
Some dat he will meet someone who will expose him for what he really is, a lying ego driven hack whos only aim is himself.
“You don’t say! “
Don’t get too excited. Gibbs hasn’t experienced an epiphany. He’s a Clinton’ista and is just out front doing some prep work for Hillary. Expect many who previously aligned with Obama to start separating themselves from him and start aligning with her.
I know a great many folks whose insurance has been cancelled in light of ObastardCare. They have decided to not get insurance, declare as many exemptions as they can on their W-4 form and let them try to collect the fine.
At some point when the “uncollected fines” reaches a high enough figure the democRATS will propose legislation that will allow the IRS to seize your bank accounts to collect those unpaid “fines”. I expect that to be in the next 12 - 18 months.
Come on Ben. It’s not about you, the American people. Get your minds off of yourselves. It’s about His Worthiness, Barack Hussein.
When I look at this presidency, the Dems, the GOP, the number of people that voted for Obama and the probability of amnesty, I don’t think we are coming back anytime soon.
Yes. And the spineless Republican ‘leaders’ will stand by and watch as the Dems lie, cheat and steal to continue the destruction of this once great country. There has not been ONE close election that the Dems haven’t manipulated into their column. Hugh Hewitt said it best ‘If it’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat’.
And let's hope that 2014, 2015, and 2016 will show the Obamanistas that they ain't seen nuttin', yet!
"No doubt about it," Gibbs responded on Meet the Press. "I would say this is the worst year of the presidency. It does beat out 2011. But -- well, and especially given sort of where he started, the fact that the first year of the second term is historically the most productive of the second term."But, well, especially given sort of how he used to be Zero's press secretary, no wonder the TOTUS didn't help that much. Thanks Sub-Driver.
You ain't seen nothing yet.
Beat me 2 it.
It's a 'big project' to kill all first born males too... "Big" is not the issue... Gregory's an idiot.
I think you'll be able to say that again and again.
We're just now getting started on "worst" and you ain't seen nothin' yet!
The obama presidency is Jimmy Carter's answered prayer. Thanks to obama, Jimmy C. is no longer the worst president ever.
By the time we get to 2016, well...IF we get to 2016, by then obama will own the record book for worst.
I bet that there is one person thrilled with the fact that Obama has the worst rating among the Presidents.
That person would be Jimmy Carter.He’s probably jumping with joy.
Just wait until next year!
Maybe a bad year for Barry but the past 5 years have all been bad years for Americans. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights have been destroyed by a bunch of bottom feeding, Marxist college kids of very little intelligence.
No, this is the worst presidency in the history of this country.
And the worse congress, and the worst judicial branch, and the worst regulatory agencies...
The beast needs to go.
Again I disagree strongly with anyone claiming this is a bad year for Obama. He has gotten everything he wanted and cemented the fact that the rinos will grab their collective ankles on demand. I will go so far as to say it is his best year ever when it comes to raw dictatorial powet.
Obama = Weasel
I will have to agree with you. Given that it is his goal to transform (destroy) America, the chaos is all part of the plan. Bailouts for the insurance companies, cuts for the military, handouts for the parasites, etc., it all makes sense, notwithstanding the destruction of the “little” people. I also agree that we will see the RINOs do just as you predict, AGAIN!
So this Hack Gibbs finally admits a negative after five (5) years?!
Hey Gibbs, each year has been worst than Bath House’s prior year. Its obvious to anyone with eyes to see. And that trend WILL continue, because leftists have an aversion to reality.
It looks like Obama just got bitch-slapped.
I pray that this will be the year that breaks Obama’s grip on power over our lives and that Obama will be a political lame duck for the three remaining terrible years we have to endure those communist commands.
