Obama: Gibbs’ $172,200 Salary Is “Relatively Modest Pay”

How much do community organizers get paid?
…Just wondering.

Barack Obama told reporters yesterday that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ $172,200 salary was “relatively modest pay.”
The Atlantic reported, via FOX Nation:

Perhaps it was the long flight back from Hawaii. But President Obama’s first full day back on the job suggested a slight case of tone deafness.

In bidding a sort-of farewell to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, he noted the “relatively modest pay” for which Gibbs has labored.

In fact, he earns $172,200 in a nation where the average family income hovers around $55,000, unemployment is high, record foreclosures persist and wages for most folks are at best stagnant.

Of course, the fact that Obama said this surprises no one.
