23. Here is a more specific example of what I'm talking about
From my previous post.

"That's why this BS about bipartisanship has become an end unto itself regardless of the people's will or any mandate, so if the Republican Party gets knocked down on it's knees as they were, the Democratic Party has to help it up before the GOP is knocked out.

And this column below.

Gibbs last month said on NBCs "Meet the Press" that there was "no doubt" there were enough House seats in play to flip control of the lower chamber to the GOP.

That remark drew a swift rebuke at least behind closed doors from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Now whose interests do you think Gibbs was representing with that comment?
