Skip to comments.Gibbs On Economy: Obama Has "Pulled The Bus Out Of The Ditch" (video)
Posted on 07/09/2012 12:26:01 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
On the Monday broadcast of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs used a familiar metaphor about a "car in the ditch" that President Obama was known for using throughout 2010.
When Barack Obama got the keys to the bus it was trapped in the ditch with three flat tires. We've changed the tires, we've pulled the bus out of the ditch, and were starting up the road to strengthening the middle class," Gibbs said this morning.
"There's a different theory. Mitt Romney wants to take that bus -- probably a bus made in Switzerland or Bermuda -- and he wants to turn that bus around, he wants to pick up some millionaires and billionaires and shower them with cash," he said.

Gibbs is going after the stupid person vote.
Pulled it out of the ditch, and shipped it to Brazil and China in pieces.
Smart move, there's lots of stupid people out there.
Was this Obama’s Canadian made campaign bus?
Lying comes so naturally to these deluded folks.
obama gave the bus to the UAW. it’s not our bus any more.
...and driven it downhill ever since right to the cliff.
Such an argument as Gibbs makes insults the intelligence of even the most constitutionally-illiterate voter who can see all around him that this Obama-driven "bus" is missing an engine, fuel, and a driver who knows the difference or how to acquire either.
Delusion comes so naturally to these lying folks. :-)
I agree, and it’s frightening....
Gibbs should be bitch slapped for that comment.. w/an eye poke...
Pulled it out of the ditch and set it ablaze with all the people still trapped inside.
if the economy was doing as well as Gibbs says it is....he wouldn’t have to hide out on MSNBC (and like minded echo chambers)
It never ceases to amaze me how much projection these commiecrats use, i.e. they accuse the opposition of doing exactly what they are doing.
This is a standard alinsky tactic that is also a well-known sign of mental illness.
Seriously. I read the article, and I couldn't help but wonder who the heck he was talking to. It's like he's reading some kind of fairly tail to a group of children.
I don't know if these leftist are clinically insane and actually believe what they say is real, or whether they know they're lying their ass_es off.
Either way - It's kinda creepy.
He pulled the bus out of the ditch to burn it
Absolutely. I heard some left wing talking head on the tube the other day claiming Obomacare was designed to get rid of the "Freeloading" TAX PAYERS who aren't paying their free ambulance and free emergency room bills. According to this guy, the scrounging left wing welfare base had nothing to do with the theft. It was all the working peoples fault. No joke!
"There's a different theory. Mitt Romney wants to take that bus -- probably a bus made in Switzerland or Bermuda."
Oh horse feathers!
Personally, I want to drive my own car or my own bus if I want one. I don’t want to be riding on the bus and I certainly don’t want to be fighting for the best seat.
Pulled it right out of the ditch that the democrats crashed it into and gunned it right off the cliff into the toilet.
That’s exactly what Obama’s economic “plan” amounts to.
Not to mention the illegal aliens who have bankrupted many emergency rooms.
These lefty's with their delusions and lies are simply amazing.
Is that the big black Canadian/Canadien bus that Baraq rides around in on the taxpayers money?
It’s all George Bush’s fault!
George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies the White House, is to blame for it all.
He broke Obama’s promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.
He broke Obama’s promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end earmarks.
He broke Obama’s promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.
Bush broke Obama’s promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.
He broke Obama’s promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America’s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.
He broke Obama’s promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.
He broke Obama’s promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.
Bush broke Obama’s promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.
He broke Obama’s promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter.
“Personally, I want to drive my own car or my own bus if I want one.”
Good point: Gibbs’ analogy betrays his one-size-fits-all mentality. Moreover, who the hell would hire anyone who took THREE YEARS to get a bus out of a ditch. Even if we accepted the analogy as valid, Ronald Reagan got a much more damaged bus out of the ditch MUCH faster. http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-percent-job-losses-in-world-war-ii-recessions-2012-7
That’s what the country gets for electing an affirmative action president who likely had terrible grades. He’s an amateur who’s way over his head. Peoples here is ignant.
