White House Press Secretary As Market Passes 12 Year Low: Fighting With Critics Is Fun

Robert Gibbs is no Sun-Tzu. While the economy goes into the tank as stock prices plummet to new twelve year lows, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is interested in trying to do fun stuff, like score debating points against administration critics Rick Santelli, Jim Cramer and Rush Limbaugh.

This is what you get when you elect a dull, uninspired paint-by-the-numbers Socialist to be the nation's chief executive.

The Hill reports:

President Obama’s spokesman and confidant simply characterizes his battles with Limbaugh and CNBC commentators Rick Santelli and Jim Cramer as “fun.”
He adds that the rationale behind engaging those critics from the podium of the White House briefing room is to correct the record on Obama’s policies during times of severe economic uncertainty.

“There’s a certain amount of theater to it that might make it more fun, but it’s important that people understand the policy,” Gibbs said in his West Wing office.

We now have a modern day urban legend to set alongside Nero playing playing the fiddle as Rome burned.
