Baghdad Bob Gibbs Denies Obama Prosecution Flip-Flop
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Has anyone ever seen Saddam’s old spokesman, Baghdad Bob, and Bob Gibbs, PBO’s press secretary, in the same room? When it comes to denying reality, they are cut from the same cloth. And there was that story today about the doctor claiming to have cloned people . . .

Really, is there anything Gibbs won’t say on behalf of his boss? I’ve put together for your delectation a video montage of the latest example of Gibbs’ truth-defying act. It’s a step-by-step demonstration of how Gibbs yesterday denied the undeniable: that Pres. Obama changed positions when it comes to the possibility of prosecuting Bush administration members involved in authorizing the use of interrogation techniques now deemed verboten.

“Gibbs lies about everything, and the media doesn’t care.”

Yeah, but isn’t that his job, to lie? Just like lawyers, publicists, and politicians.

It’s not like he can go against the administrations line even if he didn’t believe it. He’s paid to be their spokesman.

I remember the MSM making fun of Ari Fleischer a lot. But that’s different. He was a Republican, and he didn’t later write a book about how evil the administration was for attempting to pursue the policy decisions it had made.

I wonder if they think they can avoid releasing the “results” memos that Cheney demanded Monday by claiming prosecutions may be pending.

“I don’t think that was Ari but the guy after him.”

I said Ari DIDN’T write a tell-all, and therefore was a free target for the MSM. The guy who followed him, Scott Whatever, received an exceptionally warm response.
