Robert Fibbs to Leave as Press Secretary

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary and close confidante to President Obama, said Wednesday that he will step down and become an outside political adviser to the president and his re-election campaign.

Mr. Gibbs said that he intends to leave in early February. His successor has not yet been decided, he said, but will likely be announced within the next two weeks.

Perhaps he is going to be replaced with someone with more credibility? Maybe this guy?

    Gibbs is such a putz. He was always good for a few chuckles though – at his own expense even though he didn’t mean it to be. Oh well, one less rat to clean out of the WH come 2012.

    It must be a tough, thankless job to be a propaganda minister for any President. No matter the party, they will have vicious critics, they will come to the podium absent the best information and sometimes the truth will be withheld from them. They believe in their President and will dance with the facts to support them and unfortunately as the media is viewed as an enemy of their agenda, they will start treating them with contempt. Tony Snow as one of the few I thought was honest, open and not looking upon the media as the enemy.

    Being in the media each day, I know we can get tired of their voice, appearance and mannerisms; but as I said, I think it is a thankless job and I doubt the next person will fare any better.

    Gibbs – Fibbs = 3rd grade humor.

    You may continue, boys and girls.

      Gibbs – Fibbs=0. And the truth is now told.

        The fact that Gibb’s is stepping up, and not “down” shows that your 3rd grade emotional comments might be fun, but irrelevant when it comes to how things work in the real world.

    Quitter Gibbs has joined Quitter Rahm, and Quitter Summers as one more rat in the mass exodus of the Obama sinking ship. I’m just waiting to hear from Quitter Clinton.

      Oh, yeah. He quit half way through Obama’s term…just like Sarah. When you put it that way, leftie heads will be ‘sploding left and right. (Mostly left.)

    Good bye, Bobbie Gibberish, and please do let the door hit you in your fat, anti-American a$$ on the way out.
