Exclusive: Gibbs eyed for DNC chair - Mike Allen and Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com

Democratic insiders are taking the temperature of some top party donors about the possibility of naming White House press secretary Robert Gibbs as chairman of the Democratic National Committee heading into President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, senior officials tell POLITICO.
1. It is apparent that the White House is behind this attempt to place the put-out press secretary in the DNC.

2. Far from signalling the change the caucus is demanding from leadership, this move indicates a doubling down, a REACHOUT by the administration to control even more firmly the comprehensive machinery of the party.

3. Observers closely watched to see what inner workings would transpire after the exit of Rahm.

4. The promotion of Rouse to Chief of Staff equally shows stubborn Barry digging in those determined heels.

5. Truth is, he's too insecure to allow in an outsider, he'd feel threatened.

6. This intransigency on the part of the administration is causing the caucus increasing consternation.

7. Obama knows best, Obama doesn't need to listen, reality and the membership and the American people be damned.

8. Dems who OPPOSED the obnoxious one on the floor are doing much better in their reelections than their more craven counterparts who cooperated.

9. The MEANING is clear---the caucus returned after November is gonna look around and see that those of them who said YES to Obama are gone, while those who voted NO survived.

10. What will that foretell?

11. Of course, anticipating multiple moves ahead is completely beyond the capacity of the oblivious one who knows best.

12. Last week Gibbs, the wannabe DNC, was confronted by the press corps for TWELVE MINUTES AND TWENTY TWO SECONDS uninterrupted, pestering the press spokesperson about how leadership could possibly try to blame the PARTY OF NO for leadership's PUNT on the Bush tax cuts.

13. A fascinating and very revealing video.

14. The questioners, notably, who remained calm and professional despite their obvious disbelief in the wannabe DNC's obfuscations, were---CHUCK TODD of MSNBC, JAKE TAPPER from ABC, CBS White House correspondent CHIP REID, and invisible Mara Liason from NPR.

15. CHANGE, screams the caucus increasingly.

16. MORE, answers the grasping, insecure president.

17. It's getting awfully lonely at the top.

18. What's most odd is oblivious Obama doesn't seem to know it.

19. Is Gibbs gonna DRUG TEST his professionals leftists?

20. The party's getting kinda sparse, progressives, no?

I for one hope and pray he takes control of the DNC because he has shown as Press Secretary that he is out of all the incompetent mentally challenged dummy's Obama has in his cadre of underachievers Gibbs is by farand away numero uno, hands down, bar none.

As head screw up at the DNC he well insure they will slide into the abyss of oblivion. Good news all around.

Gibbs can't even answer simple questions for the press. Him being DNC chair would be like Sarah Palin as president... An epic fail.
