Robert Gibbs Struggles To Keep A Straight Face

In Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Scott Brown on January 24, 2010 at 3:59 pm

According to Gibbs, Scott Brown’s win in Massachusetts is a great sign for Obama. The people are angry. They are angry about the last eight years [of George W. Bush], not Obama. Is anyone buying this? How long will it take before someone looks one of these delusional moonbats in the eye and says, “Are you kidding? You don’t make the slightest bit of sense.”

Let’s follow the argument: People are angry about the previous eight years of George W. Bush. Scott Brown walks in “lockstep” with George W. Bush (according to Obama, Coakley and Deval throughout the campaign). Hence, Scott Brown wins impossible election in the bluest state in the Country. Got it.

Here is part of the transcript taken from Gateway Pundit via Fox News:

Chris Wallace: It wasn’t the same thing that swept Barack Obama into office. Scott Brown explicitly campaigned against the Obama agenda. His approval rating among that electorate was 61%. Their enthusiasm for Republican policies among that electorate was 40%.

Chris Wallace: But your not suggesting that this was a mandate for Barack Obama?

Robert Gibbs: No. Of course not. But I’m also not suggesting that what you said a minute ago meets the truth test either.

Chris Wallace: You don’t think that when they voted for Scott Brown they were voting against Obama’s policies?

Robert Gibbs: That’s not what they told pollsters. No.

Robert Gibbs on Scott Brown’s win: That may be what he campaigned on but that’s not what the voters in Massachusetts said in the Washington Post poll… They did a poll of voters who participated in why they voted. Right. More people voted express their support for Barack Obama than to oppose him.

How long will the denial continue? John Edwards found the end of the road came in the form of an inconvenient paternity test. Only time will tell which piece of irrefutable evidence will ultimately force the rest to their knees; dare to dream.
