During an interview with The Hill in his West Wing office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs blasted liberal naysayers, whom he said would never regard anything the president did as good enough.
“I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested,” Gibbs said. “I mean, it’s crazy.”
The press secretary dismissed the “professional left” in terms very similar to those used by their opponents on the ideological right, saying, “They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”
Go fuck yourself sideways with a brick, Mr. Gibbs. I’ve defended your boss and his mealy mouthed centrism for nearly 3 years, in the hopes that he’d accomplish a fraction of what he promised. So far he’s done shit. GTMO is still open, we’re still in Afghanistan and Iraq with no end to either occupation in sight and the healthcare bill is a fucking joke. You’ve rolled over for every right wing lunatic’s racist conspiracy theory and now you lash out at your supporters in the feeblest way possible, by building hippie straw men.* Nice. You’re supposed to talk shit about your opponents, not the people who support you.
You don’t want my support, fine, see if I vote for your boss again in 2012.
* No one wants to shut down the Pentagon. Though turning it into a university once the ludicrously bloated defense budget is cut in half would be nice. I’m all for recycling. I’m also in favor of Canadian style health care, because it covers everyone and costs half as much as our current sloppy wet corporate blowjob of a healthcare system. The only people who dismiss “Canadian Style” Healthcare are fucking Right Wing sociopaths, hoping for some of that trickle down money they keep praying to Supply-Side Jesus for. Man I’m such a hippy!
