Gibbs: Obama believes Katrina response failures were ‘colorblind’



quote:

Senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs dismissed claims from conservative media outlets that the president believed that the botched federal response to Hurricane Katrina was influenced by race.


quote:

“The president says the incompetence surrounding the federal government’s response to Katrina in 2005 was colorblind,” said Gibbs. “If the Republicans want to defend the Bush administration’s response to Katrina, I’m sure the president would give them ample time during the debate to do that.”

quote:

I have to say I’m a little amazed that as you mention a widely-covered speech, widely by people at your network has somehow caused a kerfuffle five years later because somebody like Sean Hannity decided to re-air what was covered extensively,” he said to CBS’s Norah O’Donnell.

um, is that really what he believes? or is that what he believes now, after he already is caught on tape saying the opposite?

quote:

Sean Hannity decided to re-air what was covered extensively,”


um, it was never aired or covered at all actually...that's the whole freaking point

its amazing this is the narrative they are sticking to..."Oh this is old news, this an old story and we covered it already"

aka "we knew about this 5 years ago and thought we had already covered it up"

how stupid do they think we are?

Have to put the CBS lapdog back in its place.

Ohhhhhh so when he was talking to them he was also saying on behalf of white people "Where's ma munny"...

He was also talking about how white people will get over the past. That makes complete sense. Also explains why he spoke about Rita as well.

Because when Obama said that New Orleans didn't get the Stafford Act waived because the majority of New Orleans isn't considered "part of the American family" he really meant southerners and not black people. Got it.

I have already seen a bunch of people posting online saying the Repubs are desperate and using a 5 year old video that was already reported and covered

this is the talking point...this is what will get spread...none of them will actually watch or listen to the video to have an informed opinion of their own

"old news, nothing to see here...move along now minions. Obama loves you all"

Socialism can't grow in the light of truth. Socialism only works on the ignorant, naive masses. So if you keep telling the lie they already believe to be true no further energy is needed to form an opinion and they can get back to American Idol, Desperate Housewives and World of WarCraft.

Not really.

They KNOW they are pandering to the LCD.

The fix is in on this entire fricking debacle of an election. People have stopped thinking for themselves and the majority of the press is going right along with it. Romney has to step it up big time.

Otherwise, the Emperor has new clothes and the child that yells out that he's naked gets put in jail.

That's a complete lie. I saw the video of the man saying otherwise.

I thin everyone has looked at different portions if this video, depending on what side of the aisle you are on.

Here is a question though: everyone here always referred to Hannity as an insufferable prick.

Does everyone love him now?

Bob was better at lying in the light of the facts than Gibbs.
