    Vacationing Obama gets temp press secretary

    VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) - With a broad grin and aw-shucks approach, Bill Burton is a marked contrast with his boss, the always ready-for-battle White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.
    While Gibbs comes off as combative and hot, Burton is low-key and self-deprecating. He always seems ready to smile.

    snip

    Gibbs told the AP not to read too much into his absence.

    So here it is lads, and lassies....Is puffy the bloated blowhard Gibbs on his way out, in favor of the next smirking, condescending puppet? I don't like either one of them, but it ain't my choice.

    Maybe Gibbs can take his place on the Morning Joe round table on MSNBC, or be a regular for Olberman.

    Well at least Gibbs can have something in common with Bush now...yet another person to blame for Obamas failings.

    Personally I will be stunned if they let Gibbs go. People may not like his smirky smarmy condescending act...but the president loves it.

    I don't know...

    I've noticed Gibbs has been absent of late and pointed this out to my wife days ago, but I can't say for certain if he has been replaced or will be soon. I guess if he doesn't return after the November elections we'll know he's been canned.

    Some really important info in that link:

    Just 33 years old, the Buffalo, N.Y., native has already worked in three presidential campaigns and on Capitol Hill. He's seen as a top contender to be White House press secretary if Gibbs moves on. Burton - like Obama, the son of a black father and white mother - appears to be the first African-American to take the podium and speak on behalf of the president.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Re: Vacationing Obama gets temp press secretary

    the secty appeared before the corps precisely twice since suggesting 3 weeks ago that the professional left pee in that career-killing cup

    his reception... well, you can imagine

    he's closer to his president than any press mouthpiece i can recall

    that's what made it hurt so bad

    (that, and the fact that his suggestion just might be apt, seems really to have struck a nerve)
