Robert Gibbs, communications director, head of positioning (and media “enforcer“) on the Barack Obama campaign has been much more visible this Fall, making the rounds a number of talk shows including Fox & Friends this morning.
Gibbs defended Obama’s decision to defuse John McCain’s misty eyed remember-the-troops bracelet-wearing moment by showing his own bracelet during the debate last week.
Gibbs once said of Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, “I think the best way to go about a bully is to go directly at him,” made the most of this particular morning spat. He kept smiling and offered to email co-host Brian Kilmeade an AP article about the issue while Kilmeade looked as if his pants were indeed, on fire.[via Oliver Willis]
