Skip to comments.Robert Gibbs Rips Obama On 'Exceedingly Passive' IRS Scandal Response
Posted on 05/14/2013 1:02:26 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Et tu, Roberto? It was bad enough for President Obama to have Andrea Mitchell jump ship this morning. But now someone who isarguablyeven closer to home has taken a resounding shot at the President's mishandling of the IRS scandal.
Appearing on Mitchell's MSNBC show this afternoon, former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs condemned the president's "exceedingly passive" language in discussing the scandal. Obama had said there'd be consequences "if" wrongdoing were found, and spoken of "losing patience." Gibbs was scathing: that's what "I do with my nine-year old." Ouch!

Rats. Sinking ship. Leaving? Ping to Today show list.
More incoming for Barry from Clinton Fire Control.
Sorry Robert after covering for Obama in Carney’s position there is no way you can ever get your credibility back.
You are scum.
I am not buying this until we get more info.
This could be a leftist manufactured "crisis" to distract from Benghazi.
This reminds me of Clinton. There were so many different scandals going on at the same time. The public could not focus on any one of them. If 0bama were smart he would get caught having gay sex and his popularity would jump ten points.
Have you noticed that Captain Diversity hires whitebread stereotypes for his flak man?
He probably figures it’s what whitey likes.
If you watched his Fox interview, prior to the first election, he was practically in whiteface, he had so much powder on.
Bingo, smells , coming to easy
That’s all this is. The real fire is Benghazi. This is smoke which will pass.
This could be a leftist manufactured “crisis” to distract from Benghazi.
Don;t celebrate, instead watch the other hand...
Once you loose Gibbs you have lost....can’t think of anything pertinent.
Gibbs is as ignorant as Bammy.
Isn’t Gibbs still running or involved with one of Obama’s tax exempt groups?
Isn’t he involved with Organizing for America??
Remember he left the Press Secretary job to go do that right?
The leadership of the group will include Robert Gibbs, the presidents longtime confidant and former White House press secretary, as well as Stephanie Cutter, Jennifer OMalley Dillon and Julianna Smoot, three deputy campaign managers. Jon Carson, who left the White House this week after serving in the Office of Community Engagement, will be the groups executive director.
I think they’re attempting a massive distraction frmo Benghazi.
Gibbs is still in Obama’s inner circle. This was planned.
That is what I think. Benghazi must be truly horrible to try hiding it with IRS malfeasance.
Alternately, I think they are trying distract us from Amnesty being passed. If everybody is worked up Benghazi, and the IRS, how many will notice that that Amnesty is creeping through Congress?
I am also skeptical or this gift. Readings are a little high on my B/S skeptometer.
Great news, but I hate to say don’t get attached to these “Bigfoot flying UFO” sightings, cuz like a beaten wife I think in a week the entire fetid media machine will be RIGHT back to their old worshipping ways.
NICE to think it’s all finishing up with a Skooby-Doo-esque, “Would have won, if not for you meddling kids..!” type finish, but, uh....
Inside of 1 week they’ll be all blushing, lined up, lubed up and sporting the knee pads, and we’ll be back with our voice in the wilderness.
“This could be a leftist manufactured “crisis” to distract from Benghazi.”
Yup, I don’t trust any of these people as far as Present Girley Man can throw a baseball!
I don't buy that line of reasoning. The IRS revelation is bad news anyway you cut it. I think we can have 2 separate forest fires joining up to become a monster fire.
On the other hand, the IRS scandal could lead to the permanent neutering of the agency, which would ultimately do a lot more harm to the interests of International Socialism than impeaching the friendly black puppet. They can find more Obamas - they can't endure without a powerful IRS serving as a revenue collection and behavior modification tool.
It’s all coming from the White House. It’s the talking point approved by Obammy. I KNEW NOTHING!!!
Robert Gibbs: "If I had a son, he would be like Obama."
The IRS gives power to both sides of the aisle. Neither the ‘Pubbies nor the Democrats will suffer the IRS to be “neutered.” How else would they extort “donations” from their corporate donors, with the threat of IRS actions, or the promise of IRS favors?
” If 0bama were smart he would get caught having gay sex and his popularity would jump ten points.”
We’ll see if Reggie leaves the door cracked.
