Robert Gibbs Joins Obama - Says Massachusetts' Vote Was Not Against Obama's Radical Agenda

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.


Now over at CBS this is what they were discussing.
The loss of a Democratic Senate seat in Massachusetts has made the White House worry about lack of support. As Bill Plante reports, advisors deny rumors of a White House staff shakeup.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Oh my gosh, all Sunday morning on TV it was one democrat after the other LYING about what happened in Mass. and why. It was almost shocking to see. Dems can lie right to our face. If it was pouring rain and a person was standing in the rain with one of these people, they would say NO it is a sunny day and they actually think the rest of the people would believe them. LOL amazing.....the sad thing is there are still people in our country that sit there and nod yessss when they hear all the lies from the left. Now that is scary.

Good old Bobby Gibbs wouldn't know the truth if it bit him on the butt! He's lied so much that he actually believes his own lies. He also would not make a pimple on Tony Snow's butt.

More people voted in support of obama than voted against him. ...then Coakley won ? These people are not only Liars they are delusional. It's bad enough to lie to the people but when you lie to yourself, you got a real problem.

This convoluted logic just doesn't compute. obama lives in his own little dysfunctional world and how dare anyone disturb that bubble.

Axlerod said that "no one will know what is in this bill until it is passed and Obama signs it.:

Howard Dean said the GOP won because the Dem's were not liberal enough.

What a bunch of academic ignoramuses.

Hopefully Gibbs and the White House can convince Democrats in Congress that Brown's victory wasn't about Obama's policies. Hopefully they'll keep on supporting Obama's policies and ignoring the people. And, by God's Grace, we'll get a new congress come November.

I love watching zombies eating their own.

BobF stated my thoughts. I hope obama and crew don't change their agenda or methods. Too many Americans have become dissappointed and angry at this administration and Congress. If the Democrats stay their course they wll be slaughtered in November.
