Gibbs: If We'd Known About Conviction, Woman Wouldn't Have Stood With Obama

A Charlottesville, Va., resident who stood with President Obama would likely not have been asked to participate in a Rose Garden speech on unemployment if the White House had known she was convicted of prescription drug fraud charges in April 2009, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday.

A Charlottesville, Va., resident who stood with President Obama would likely not have been asked to participate in a Rose Garden speech on unemployment if the White House had known she was convicted of prescription drug fraud charges in April 2009, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday.

"Without knowing a lot, I would certainly say that had that type of information been known, I doubt seriously -- she would not have participated in the event here," Gibbs said at the daily press briefing.

This is by far the most inept Administration I have seen in my lifetime, and yes, I was around during the Carter Administration.

...really?...if you’d known about the conviction she wouldn’t have been there? well, duh, that’s a start.

It takes 5 minutes to run a criminal background check on someone. The fact that they don’t do that for someone they are giving access to TOTUS is quite scary.

WHAT? You mean they don't do background checks on people coming to the Rose Garden and standing beside the President of the United States? What an inept bunch of meat heads.

Instead, she would be supplying Gibbels with his own hallucinogens.

There’s even less adult supervision in this White House than there was in the Clinton White House.

It is truly amateur hour at the White House. Someone in the press corps ought to ask Gibbs if anyone has the responsibility to vet folks that get to stand next to the boy king.

I'd call it a huge gap in his Secret Service protection. How in the world could such a thing happen? Who is running that show now?

Don't be too hasty there, Gibbsie. This must be some kind of misunderstanding. I think we need a prescription drug summit. Barry and Joe can sit out on the patio with her and pop pills while they work all this out. Cheers!

Do these clowns check ANYTHING before putting it out? It’s been 20 months and I still can’t believe people actually voted for this poor excuse for a man, much less a president. This doofus can’t even fill Jimmah Carter’s shoes.

There are no adults and certainly no brains. This speaks volumes about Obama voters.

What is the difference with this woman and Obamas friend
Bill Ayers or Rezko I see no difference although she probably has less cash than the other 2 stand up citizens

This White House is a joke. Back in May, Kalamazoo (Mi.) Central high school Seniors were asked to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Obama spoke at their graduation ceremony.

Well, to be absolutely honest, if they did background checks and held to the vetting process - it would seriously diminish the number of folks from his “base” that could get near to him.

just sayin’, there would probably be lot less brothers and sisters chillin’ with him.

"Boy! Ain’t that the truth!"

I still see Obama Biden stickers on cars here from time to time but they are becoming fewer. I guess some of the weasels who voted for hope and change no longer want to advertise it. A pox on them anyway.

And if the Press had done ITS JOB, Obama wouldn’t have been standing up there either.

Of course, Hillary might have been.

“WHAT? You mean they don’t do background checks”

Of course they do!

Criminal record, check.
Substance abuse, check.
Democrat, check.

Yup it all adds up. Let her stand next to the Commander in Chief!

Besides, they didn’t think they’d get caught.

If the press had done it’s job, there never would have been a Hillary candidacy because there never would have been a Clinton presidency.

Gibbs: If We'd Known About Conviction, Woman Wouldn't Have Stood With Obama

LOL. It's okay to be a criminal, but a conviction would have kept said criminal from appearing in a photo-op with a Dem POTUS to promote the fleecing of the American taxpayer, if they had only known about the conviction.

You mean Obummer didn’t do any background check. LOLOL

And Mr. Chakulas admitted in a local newspaper interview that his wife earned enough money to pay their bills but he had a hard time saying NO to his eight year old son.

That’s a great reason to add $34 BILLION to the deficit.
