White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, to Kenneth T.
Walsh of U.S. News: 'I'm usually getting here at about 6 in the morning. You have access to the smartest people in the world, and you can ask them whatever questions you want. And it's a tremendous opportunity to learn and a tremendous
opportunity to serve. I've got this sort of dual role. I need to go to enough meetings so that I'm informed as to his [Obama's] thinking so that I can inform you all of that, as well as getting ready. And that's the interesting sweet spot to try to hit.'
This is the same guy that said, 'The president has confidence in the system', after losing Richardson, Daschel, and Killefer, after Geithner and following the President's jaming his new administration full of lobbyists, and after Valerie Jarrett's sillyness in Davos, Switzerland. Clearly the spot ain't that sweet, and the large guy at the podium doesn't seem to get it yet that smart is what smart does. Too much cheesecake too soon.
