Gibbs is a tool.

After taking a shot at Fox News yesterday I hope that Major’s bosses turn him loose to go rip Gibbs a new one.

Gibbs is on the ropes...Major is outing him on national TV and Gibbs began sweating....something big is being worked on and covered up.

I had this video up at younggunconservative.com about 30 minutes ago, but I didn’t think it was Breaking News, or else I would have posted it as that.

I hope someone is watching the backs of Major Gibbs, Sarah Palin, the Cheneys, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, because therin lies much of the gonadal mass of the conservative movement.

There is only one real reporter in the White House press pool. The rest are still squeezing out the last of the KY jelly.

Gibbs will one day declare the sky is Forest Green striped with Purple Haze and pretty buttons and flowers.

Baghdad Bob would have resigned in shame by now.

The White House is using the Obama for America and Organizing for America databases to run their health care promotion campaign.

This is an inappropriate intersection of the campaign and the government. The government can not keep “Enemies’ Lists” using government assets, personnel or equipment. Neither can they keep “Friends’ Lists”.

Gibbs knows this. He is just blowing smoke to keep the issue confused. Eventually, the White House will get nailed on this issue.

Gibbs had a point though in that an example email needs to be provided to determine source. I think the WH is using political lists to email people but Garrett needs to follow-up and provide evidence of an email then hold the WH to answering where they got it.

Major Garrett just reported that he received permission from the people that contacted him about the email. He has talked to Gibbs and told him that he will give them the e mail addresses.

Still waiting for Gibbs to get back to him.

Ball now in Gibbs court.

Garrett is not going to back down.

A FReeper on one of the earlier threads made a new email account to mail a letter to flag@.

Two days later he received mail from that account from axelrod.

Not sure but I don't think he used that account for anything else.

If so, it nails them that they are using flag@ to get a mailing list.

” Eventually, the White House will get nailed on this issue “

This is an excellent issue on which to nail them too. It exemplifies this administrations Marxist soul.

Also, as I said once before, look for the issue that the White House press corp gets so tired of not getting answers to, that they began to re-ask so as not to let gibbs get away with it.

One female reporter started to do that with Major Garrett’s question, and gibbs didn’t like it one bit.

I think Zero has GWB’s White House Mailing list. I started getting e-mails from them a couple months ago.

I had signed up for e-mails from Bush a few years ago.

I think Garrett is on to something but when he didn’t provide an email, it isn’t going to go anywhere.

if hanky-panky is going on, then an email showing it has to be produced otherwise the db people will have no idea what to look for. It seems that Major is going to provide the emails, which is good, but I wasn’t as impressed as others at his performance. He is on to something but I am not sure what Gibbs was supposed to say if Major didn’t have a specific instance to work with.

Let’s see how it all falls out over the next week or so.

You are correct. It is sickening to watch the rest of the press sit there trying to help Gibbs (and Obama). You can tell they are really worried health care might not pass and they are trying to figure out what they can do to help. They don’t question Gibbs about the lies Obama has told about health care. They don’t care about the truth. They only care about their left wing agenda.

Yes. I did. Thanks.

My gosh, that is an embarrassing faux pas. I don't even pay a second of attention to Gibbs so I'm not sure how I would have even typed out his name.
