Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs Becomes MSNBC Contributor

Robert Gibbs Becomes MSNBC Contributor

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs has become a contributor for MSNBC.

Rachel Maddow introduced Gibbs as a new member of her network's stable in the final minutes before President Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday night. The news had not been leaked out anywhere, and there was general surprise on Twitter about Gibbs' new role.

"We'll be talking with you again soon, I'm sure," Maddow said when he was done speaking.

Gibbs was White House press secretary from 2009 to early 2011, when he left to become a senior campaign adviser for Obama's re-election.

Wow! That's a surprise.

I was hoping that he'd be working on the 2014 democratic elections.

1. Saw that. I see him as a good progressive voice, and he might have a good insider's perspective

on some stuff. Maybe he can do more good in a role at MSNBC for 2014?

2. He'll be very good.

That's what I think. I also think he will enjoy it very much, so good for him.

4. If I hadn't already stopped watching MSNBC because of Ed Rendell

 

Robert Gibbs would do the trick.

5. That seems like a good thing to me.. and in his

own way he will be working for the 2014 Elections. Sounds like msnbc thinks there's a market for Gibbs and that makes me happy.

6. I saw that too

 

I wasnt aware he was hired by MSNBC until I saw him last night after the SOTU. I bet he will work in an advisory role for one of those PACs (or something of that nature) in 2014.
