The curtain closes on Gibbs

Washington (CNN) - It was 1:40 pm, January 22, 2009, when White House spokesman Robert Gibbs first stepped behind the podium in the James S. Brady briefing room to begin a two year joust with the press corps.

“How are you all?" The Alabama native said. “Nice to be here.”

    Um, Uh, Uh – Finally gone! One of the most disrespectful and ignorant person to work in this position. Hopefully the new person will be better, but from this administration that is doubtful.
