This blog started February 14, 2010, which coincided with Robert Gibbs joining Twitter. It wasn’t by accident — the guy was a total embarrassment and I couldn’t resist writing about it for a second longer. He’s back, proving once again why he was the one White House Press Secretary who could make Scott McClellan look like genius behind the podium.
Again, put the tax returns out. Put this whole thing to rest. Candy, have you ever seen anybody go to such great lengths to not put something out? And when you generally don’t put something out, isn’t it because you’re generally hiding something?
That is a really, really good point, Robert. Given that Barack Obama has shown that he’ll never miss an opportunity to divide Americans along economic lines, I can understand why the Romney camp wouldn’t want to give them any more ammunition with which to sow the seeds of envy. So that brings us to the big question: What the heck is in the college transcripts that President Obama has under lock and key?
One would think that if President Obama was as smart as the Chris Matthews crowd makes him out to be, he’d want to show everyone what a stellar student he was. Why would a guy who is so into himself that he once claimed the rising global warming waters would recede with his election suddenly shrink from disclosing his academic pedigree? Odd…isn’t it, Mr. Gibbs?
My guess is that Romney’s 2002 tax returns are in a filing cabinet in dark, damp basement, wedged somewhere in between President Obama’s college transcripts and the Ark of the Covenant. When President Obama releases his college transcripts, my guess is he’ll get a few more years of tax returns.
Mitt Romney surrogates: If you don’t put Gibbs into a campaign ad sometime between now and election day, ‘dereliction of duty’ will be written on your foreheads.
