30. Except as you and I both know that is not all that Gibbs said
He slammed those who see universal health care as a right, those who seek to reign military spending during an economic crisis, he used hyperbole and he applied it much wider than just to those who equate Bush to Obama. Who those are, I have no idea, because the craven Gibbs as usual was insinuating instead of communicating.
You wish that is all he said, and he probably does too, but he also mentioned a current Democratic candidate in a disparaging way. He said plenty. But you know that, because you too can read.
