Another round of fights among the worried Democrats over Gibbs telling the truth for a change. I guess Pelosi has forgotten that she herself was trying to raise money to help fight investigations of Obama by the Republicans when they take control of Congress.
Grumbling among Democratic leaders shows that they are very worried about the Mid-Term Elections!
The spokesman’s comment, in his briefing with reporters on Tuesday, is significant given the context of what he said during a news program on Sunday. Gibbs had told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there is “no doubt” that there are enough House seats in play to give Republicans a chance to seize control.
That comment caused grumbling among Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill.
Gibbs on Tuesday said he still thinks there are enough open seats to put control of the House in play, but added: “I think we’ll retain the House.” SOURCE
Obama’s latest battle: Pelosi vs. Gibbs
Pelosi’s people have made it known that the Speaker of the House was none too happy with Gibbs’ statement that Democrats could lose control of the House after the November elections. She called the comments “politically inept” at a House Democratic Caucus meeting on Tuesday night, according to multiple news reports.
“It was bad,” one source told CQ-Roll Call. “She was like: ‘I don’t appreciate it. I don’t know who this guy is. I’ve never met him before. And he’s saying that we’re going to lose the House.” Source
