White House spokesman Gibbs mocks Palin

Posted: 10th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

So according to Breitbart, yesterday White House spokesman Robert Gibbs mocked Palin and her writing-on-hand-during-speech incident.

Palin has been widely mocked for apparently writing a list of political aspirations on her hand during a convention of “Tea Party” activists at the weekend — a move that fitted with a media narrative that she lacks depth.

To what extent does this administration’s lack of self-awareness go?  This is the spokesman for a President who is known for using a teleprompter at every speech, even a speech to elementary students.  There is a huge difference in writing a few keywords down for a speech and having the entire speech provided for you on a teleprompter.

Another mention of the mockery at Breitbart notes that

Many in the room, where President Barack Obama had spoken just moments before about the need for bipartisanship, groaned at the political shot.

    I guess Palin does not understand satire and she complains about telaprompters, what a hypocrite. Palin’s hand job just shows all of us what kind of dullard we are up against, I have not seen this since junior high. She is so perfect for “Fake News”. WOW and some call her a leader….please.

  2. Scott says:

    While it is certainly not a good idea to make notes on your hand, when a variety of paper products are available, do you think it makes you more dumb if you actually have to “write out” your entire speech on a teleprompter (as opposed to writing a few keywords, let’s say, on an index card)?

    Son , You have good sound ideals but you just don’t think like a congressmen. Ideal for you.

    Congress & Obama wants to barrow 27 Trillion over the next 10 years to put up a health program. Little thought here. If we borrow 27 Trillion over the next 10 years + other money owe it will bankrupt the the country. The money taxes takes in will only pay the interest of the 27 Trillion. Then there will be ZERO money to run the country on. Then China will come in and take ownership of Washington, and then Least it back to,us. If we do anything thay don’t like they can tell us to get out and least it to Russia. Then this fellower Berneinecy something that runs the American Robbery Banking system can keep up with the rent.

    China has aleady told us that if we keep trowing money away and running up the debit, they will stop buying our bonds. If they don’t buy our bonds your looking at 20% interest rate for our country to pay on the debit. Then if you can’t pay nothing but interst every 5 years our national debit will bouble. So learn to speak chinese if this takes place.
