Jim Cramer. Rush Limbaugh. Rick Santelli.
What do they all have in common? Most likely, none of them is getting invited to the White House Christmas party.
All three media personalities have been singled out by President Obama's press shop in the course of less than two weeks. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, in doing so, has shown an unusual willingness to spar with cable and radio hosts who take shots at his boss.
The rebuttals have ranged from playful ribbing to disdainful scolding.
Talk show host Limbaugh has drawn the most ire from the White House. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel called him out on Sunday for saying he wants Obama to fail, after Obama told Republican lawmakers not to listen to people like Limbaugh several weeks ago.
Gibbs followed up Monday, calling on conservative pundits to challenge Limbaugh on air.

Hey Gibbs - Rush is challenging your guy to a debate. Betcha he is to scared to accept.
Can anyone imagine Tony Snow stooping so low?
Or Dana Perino?
But of course, this thuggery arrives directly from Chicago.
No one is surprised.
Gibbs sounds more like the little Iranian runt Ahmadinnerjacket with his incessant complaints and demands for ‘apologies’ and all of that noise.
Gibbs (like his Boss) is just a thin skinned little prick.
How appropriate that a President who is out of his depth woud hire a White House Press Secretary who is out of his depth.
Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel!
I would think that the press would realize that these attacks against private citizens are also an attack on the First Amendment.
Oh that’s right, their leftists, they only believe in freedom for themselves and not the rest of us. How could I have forgotten?
Say hello to Beltway Bob.
Spar? Spar? Butter knife to a gun fight comes to mind.
Obama and his people are extremely thin skinned. Noted by the press for future reference.
We should start calling him Gibbels.
