He’s been the Obama administration’s press mouthpiece for nearly two years now, but speculation has it that Robert Gibbs could be heading for a career shift. Might that have something to do with his recent truth-telling tear?
The Washington Post:
First, Gibbs infuriated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) by acknowledging something that is true every two years - that the party in control of the House could lose control of it after the midterm elections.
[...] Then this week Gibbs unloaded on the “professional left” - that is, the cable television punditry disappointed that Obama has not lived up to their more-liberal-than-he-is expectations. In an interview with The Hill, he called for some of them to be “drug-tested.”
Was he right, in his way, that the left has at times judged Obama’s record more by its failures than its successes? Almost certainly, yes.
