    Wish you could stick around Gibbs. I personally think you did a good job. Alot better than Perino and Fleisher.

    Robert Gibbs has been a excellent voice for the White House ,I enjoyed seeing & hearing him each morning on CNN as he would deliver the morning press briefings. I am sure that mr. Carney will do just as fine a job.

    Loved him at first but ready for a change. All his umms and awwwws drove me nuts. I just wanted to thump him in the back of the head sometimes and say, 'spit it out!'
