Robert Gibbs on Scott Brown's Win: "More People Voted to Express Support for Barack Obama Than to Oppose Him" (Video)
Change?… Not here.
Like President Obama on Wednesday, Robert Gibbs today on FOX News Sunday denied that the Scott Brown’s win in Massachusetts was an indictment of democratic policies and practices in Washington DC.
Go with it libs:
Here’s the partial transcript:
Chris Wallace: It wasn’t the same thing that swept Barack Obama into office. Scott Brown explicitly campaigned against the Obama agenda. His approval rating among that electorate was 61%. Their enthusiasm for Republican policies among that electorate was 40%.
Chris Wallace: But your not suggesting that this was a mandate for Barack Obama?
Robert Gibbs: No. Of course not. But I’m also not suggesting that what you said a minute ago meets the truth test either.
Chris Wallace: You don’t think that when they voted for Scott Brown they were voting against Obama’s policies?
Robert Gibbs: That’s not what they told pollsters. No.
Robert Gibbs on Scott Brown’s win: That may be what he campaigned on but that’s not what the voters in Massachusetts said in the Washington Post poll… They did a poll of voters who participated in why they voted. Right. More people voted express their support for Barack Obama than to oppose him.
That’s right, Robert. Keep ramming that radical agenda down America’s throat.
