Video: Barack Obama,

For his departing flak’s last day on the job, he gave Bobby Gibbs his own tie back, along with some other useless brick-a-brack. And Obama had the stupid tie mounted, so Gibbs can’t even wear it now.
Update: Upon further review, this action doesn’t even qualify as a regifting. In a true regifting, you give me a gift, and I pass that gift along to someone else as if it’s my gift to them. But what Obama has done is return Gibbs’ own property to him, as a gift, and rendered unusable by having had it mounted in a box. That’s just being a cheapskate who is in love with himself.
Update: What? Seriously, what?
“And then somebody — I don’t remember who it was — turned and said, ‘You know what? What about Gibbs’ tie? What about Gibbs’ tie? That might look good.’ And, frankly, Robert didn’t want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on…“
You don’t take one for the gipper, you win one for the Gipper. Does this manchild know anything about anything other than left wing academic theory?
