Barack Obama's spokesman...a primer...
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 01:15 PM by SaveElmer
A little refresher on the man Barack Obama has chosen to be his spokesman to the world...cause I know everyone Barack hires is as pure as the driven snow...right ?

Robert Gibbs fronted a group called "Americans for Jobs, Health Care and Progressive Values". Sounds like a great group right? That is until they put out a hit ad on Howard Dean that Jerome Armstrong calls "the most disgusting ad I've ever seen occur in a Democratic primary..."

Look for yourself...

But of course we know Obama's campaign would be above this kind of thing right?

4. So you can be a little pregnant...
Is that Obama's clarion call....

"We suck...but they suck worse"

Inspiring!

8. Hmmm I don't know why I bother posting in your dozens of trash threads.
But in any event, yes the big bad Gibbs is horrible.

But Mark Penn is still an asshole.

And neither change my opinion about either candidate.

10. You left off Begala.
Didn't I read somewhere he was behind the negative strategy of Hillary?

Wouldn't doubt it. Fucking Paul Begala.

11. Rezko, Allison Davis, Robert Gibbs, ....
So your argument is that Obama is less of an A-Hole than Hillary?

13. I don't think any of the names listed changes my mind of the candidates.
Or any one else for that matter.

Mark Penn is an asshole. But that doesn't change anything I feel about Senator Clinton, and whether I believe she should be President or not. Same with Mr. Gibbs.

7. With all his faults, Gibbs is still only 10% the fascist asshat that Mark Penn is.

9. Reaching back, aren't you? I thought we were all about change
(Obama's mantra usurped by your 'gal') and moving forward? :shrug:

IIRC Obama wasn't running way back when, so what does he have to do with it? And you're asking for it by comparing records of spokespersons. Just sayin'...

12. Elmer, what are you trying to accomplish?
Whatever it might be, it's not working.

14. It never does. But oh well, let Elmer post the usual trash.
Gibbs, like Penn, is still an asshole.

Neither changes my opinion of Obama or Clinton.

17. Typical Clinton Tactic - Find Something Vaguely Resembling
The ethical problems with their campaign and then say, "Look, everybody does this. What's so bad about what we've done?"

It's amazing how many times this same exact tactic - which wasn't successful the first time - has been dragged out. Once again, it ultimately reflacts badly on the campaign and some its misguided supporters by showing what they are willing to do.

18. Katz...certainly you cannot be blind...
To the literally dozens of threads on Hillary making the same points as these...

You don't think looking at the slimeballs Obama has hired is fair?

All campaigns hire slimeballs, but when one campaign that hires slimballs critizies another for theirs...it smacks of hypocrisy wouldn't you say?
