Robert Gibbs: Double Gaffe DeLuxe
The mere mention of Rush Limbaugh sends the Press Secretary into Hyper-Gaffe mode. Another day in the life of The Tool.
White House Press Secretary, Robert ‘the Tool’ Gibbs gets fired up when a reporter blows the Rush Limbaugh dog whistle and, in his excitement, Gibbs slips and puts his foot in his mouth–twice.
A reporter informed Gibbs: “You had Rush Limbaugh today — today or yesterday — talking Obama Motors again.”
The Tool was then off and running.
From Elizabeth Williamson’s Gibbs Takes on Rush Limbaugh:
“Look, Rush Limbaugh and others wanted to walk away. Rush Limbaugh and others saw a million people that worked at these factories, that worked at these parts suppliers, that had — that supported communities, and thought we should all just walk away. The president didn’t think that walking away from a million jobs in these communities made a lot of economic sense,” Gibbs said.
“I’ll let those that sat in the cheap seats a year-and-a-half ago and wanted to walk away” from a milion workers, he continued, “explain to every one of those workers why they made that decision.”
Finally, he wrapped it up: “And then you should ask Mr. Limbaugh — I don’t know what kind of car he drives, but I bet it’s not an F-150.”
Which was a safe bet for Gibbs, since the F-150 is a truck, right?
“And then you should ask Mr. Limbaugh — I don’t know what kind of car he drives, but I bet it’s not an F-150.”
–Robert “The Tool” Gibbs
Williamson also reminded readers that the F-150 is made by Ford, which didn’t take any government bailout money.
As the Mainstream Media never failed to remind us during the 2008 Election campaign: this administration is a collection of the smartest men ever assembled in any place, any time–including the Manhattan Project.
