Gibbs, out: Word is that WH spokesman Robert Gibbs is resigning today to become a campaign adviser to President Obama. Can't say I blame Gibbs for leaving. Being a spokesman at that level is 24/7 and every move is parsed to the nano level. Imho Gibbs has been an awful spokesman. Every time the Democrats blame their losses and defeats on "messaging" they're basically saying the same thing. They're also abdicating their own responsibility for pushing bad policy that the American people clearly didn't want, of course.
