WASHINGTON (CNN) - Reporters are outshining the Obama administration in the first hundred days, at least according to the administration's press liaison.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gives the Obama administration a "B plus" on its first 100 days.
"I think there's always - and I think the president would say - there's room for improvement," he said Sunday, in response to a question.
This isn't the first 100-day grade Gibbs has issued. He recently told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that the White House press corps deserved "a strong A" for its efforts in covering the first 100 days of the new administration.
"I think they're obviously doing a tough job particularly well," Gibbs said Friday in an interview on "The Situation Room."
I give President Obama and his administration an 'A' for a wonderful start. I give P.S. Gibbs an 'A+' for putting up with the snarky questions and remarks from a few in the press. I give the press a 'C.'
I doubt that Gibbs is going to say anything "unpredictiable" about the success or failures of HIS team. Is this news?
I think Robert Gibbs is also doing a great job ..so many topics to cover each time he gives a press conference.. and he does it with intellegence and when a smile is needed he puts one on his face and goes on with the news
I agree with Mr. Gibbs that the White House press corps are doing a good job however I would grade them a B as some ask pretty stupid questions from time to time. As for the administration I would give them an A-, because of the tax problems some of them had.

Funny. Congratulating the people who are supposed to uncover the truth (but who haven't since they are enraptured with Obama), and a little self-congratulations thrown in for good measure. How nice! (trivial)
Is this not an old photo? I saw Michelle Obama in that dress a month ago.
We give Gibbs an A for his laid back, non-propagandist presentation to the press corp. I must say that we agree with one of the commenters that some of them do ask ridiculous questions. Grading a President after just 100 days is actually unfair and ridiculous, but Barack Obama has done more in this short time certainly than President Bush did in his last 100 days .... unless you count bailing out Wall Street with no regs. no controls, and very few comments. I give President Obama an A for a great start. He inherited a boatload of problems, and has made progress .... by no means perfect and it isn't going fast. It's going just as he said it would. A touch, slow recovery.
I give the President D, he needs to stop dance and do his job.
