    When Robert Gibbs was asked today about the White House's position on the Mosque that is seeking to be built at Ground Zero, he responded basically by saying it is in the hands of the local authorities. If that statement doesn't tell you where the White House stands in it's support of America and the Americans who lost their loved ones as a result of Islamic Terrorists, nothing will. What a total OBAMANATION!

    Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today predicting that Democrats will retain both the House and Senate in this Fall’s Midterm Elections. Gibbs thinks Americans will want to continue making the “progress” we’ve been making under Obama’s leadership. Of course they will!

    What is it with this White House and publicly calling out conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh? If you recall, back in January 2009 President Barack Obama told Republican congressional leaders to quit listening to Limbaugh if they wanted to get things done. It's happened once again. During the White House daily press briefing on July 29, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs took another couple of jabs Limbaugh - this time over the auto manufacturer bailout. In responding to a question concerning charges of "socialism," Gibbs went right after Limbaugh. "Look, I'll say this - Rush Limbaugh and others wanted to...

    Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs being asked today at the White House Daily Briefing, about what “assurances” President Obama has received from “his Secretary of State” that she will not run for President in 2012! Gibbs was caught flat-footed by the question, and after a pause, said he was “unaware of any assurance that this President needs about his Secretary of State.” That question goes to the heart of the nightmare scenario for Obama and his team. They barely beat Hillary in 2008. If things continue to worsen, and Obama’s numbers fall into the mid...

    "Why not vacation down there if they are encouraging others to do so?," asked CBS' Chip Reid. "I think the key is ... I have friends that email me also from Panama City that they have been down just this past week and have not seen oil, not dealt with oil on the beach and I think sometimes the pictures have led people to believe that oil may be where they were planning on going," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. "I think the First Lady's message is that the Gulf is a beautiful place," Gibbs added.

    Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dodging a question from ABC News’ Ann Compton on whether President Obama called to lobby for Valerie Jarrett to be appointed to fill his Senate seat back in 2008, just ahead of his election. Compton was referring to testimony during the Illinois Blagojevich trial by Thomas Balanoff, that Obama made such a call to him. Gibbs refused to comment at all, and when Compton reminded him that he had previously said Obama never got involved in the process of filling his Senate Seat, he again brushed her off by saying...

Jon Kyl about his assertion that President Obama told him in a one-on-one meeting that he would not secure the border because “you guys” (Republicans) won’t support Comprehensive Immigration Reform if we do. Gibbs has said Obama never made the statement, while Kyl has steadfastly stood by his account. Gibbbs tried to make out like Kyl had retreated from his assertion, and mocked Kyl for having three opinions on the matter. Actually, Kyl only said he meant that “the Left” is...
