Video: Grayson calls Gibbs “Bozo the Spokesman”

posted at 10:12 am on August 12, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

This is a fun pass-the-popcorn moment, but it’s also a puzzlement. Gibbs lashed out at the “professional Left” for not focusing on the great accomplishments of the Obama administration, which so far can be listed as (a) extending a statute of limitations on gender-bias complaints in the workplace, and (b) passing a health-sector overhaul that the public overwhelmingly opposes. Rep. Alan Grayson is hardly a model of logic and reflection at the best of times, but here he calls Gibbs a “bozo” for complaining that the Left isn’t giving Barack Obama enough credit, while chastising him … for not talking more about the credit that Obama deserves. He then accuses the White House of suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and being too cowardly to stand up to meanie Republicans, but then demands that Gibbs get fired as a way to fix the problem. If Obama administration lacks a backbone, is that really the fault of the press secretary?

As my friend Tommy Christopher writes, Grayson actually serves more as an example of what Gibbs means. After all, Grayson’s in Congress, and Obama let Congress write the whole agenda this year. Maybe Grayson’s constituents should address the real problem and fire Grayson instead.

Read the huffy comment section. Priceless.

..a link would be nice for those of us who are un-hip.

The War Planner on August 12, 2010 at 11:54 AM

Grayson shouldn’t talk about Bozo’s. Seeing as he’s Pelosi’s personal attack dog, I wonder what her pet name is for him.

GarandFan on August 12, 2010 at 10:35 AM

(1) “Sh*thead”
(2) “Mindless Tool”
(3) “Dope-on-a-Rope”
(4) “Hey Stupid”
(5) “The Assh*le that Roared”

..pick one.

The War Planner on August 12, 2010 at 11:59 AM

Alan Grayson, wow, Michael Moore and Oliver Stone had a baby?

If you take a look at other more indicative stats such as those that die of cancer, we’re far ahead of the Canadians on that.

ieplaya on August 12, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Agreed, it’s foolish to even try and compare lifespans from one country to another because they are seriously tilted by different treatment of infant mortality. In many other countries, if a baby is born and doesn’t make it out of the hospital, they don’t count in any way.

Look at survival rates from particular ailments, like cancers, heart disease, etc, and the USA makes a far better showing.

slickwillie2001 on August 12, 2010 at 12:14 PM

On Obama’s Ship of Fools, Grayson is the cabin boy.

volsense on August 12, 2010 at 12:28 PM

What a marvelous gift this Grayson lunatic is to the Republican party.

He needs to be on camera blabbing away, day and night, to help ensure that Republican voters stay well motivated.

Edouard on August 12, 2010 at 12:28 PM

You know how the stucture at the WH and a septic tank are the same? All the big chunks rise to the top…. may I have more butter on my popcorn please? Thanks.

CynicalOptimist on August 12, 2010 at 12:45 PM

Well if anyone is qualified to relate to ‘bozoism’ Grayson is that man.

jeanie on August 12, 2010 at 12:50 PM

I agree, Edouard. If the Republicans don’t make a poster boy out of this talking ass, they don’t have a pulse.

volsense on August 12, 2010 at 12:58 PM

And the MSM was saying that the GOP was imploding? Huh.

Ward Cleaver on August 12, 2010 at 1:15 PM

Ward Cleaver on August 12, 2010 at 1:15 PM

Grayson got it backwards: Gibbs is spokesman FOR BØzo

LegendHasIt on August 12, 2010 at 2:08 PM

Frankly, just the thought of Alan Grayson in clown makeup is enough to traumatize the hell out of anyone.

pilamaye on August 12, 2010 at 2:30 PM

Rep. Grayson needs to be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE in 2010!

But to do that we need to be working hard NOW to make sure we have a strong candidate to run against him.

The Florida Primary Election is on August 24, but early voting began on August 9.

There are 7 Republican candidates running in the Republican Primary in Florida’s 8th Congressional District. There are also a couple of candidates from other parites.

http://election.dos.state.fl.us/candidate/CanList.asp

If you live in or near Florida District 8, let us know which one you think is the best candidate to oppose Rep. Grayson and why.

In addition to highlighting Rep. Grayson’s weaknesses, we need to highlight the candidates who are working hard to replace Rep. Grayson.

Wait, it’s going to get much worse when democratic primary season 2012 rolls around. Will democratics running against Barry be all a bunch of racists???

Really we have Alan Grayson (D-Sesame Street) criticizing someone? Does this moron do anything else?

I guess he needs to get as much air time as he can in the next few months, after that it’ll be back to trying to sell used cars.

Alan Grayson lives in the United States of America. But, his money does not.

What more credibility do you need or want, elmo? Just because 99% of DC is corrupt, does not make it right. Douche.

Grayson seems to be very conversant with bozoism. Probably taught constitutional bozoism at Harvard with his bunk mate, Obamarrhoid.

GRAYSON FOR SPEAKER, AND SCHUMER FOR SENATE DEM LEADER.

With the DOTUS in the White House and these two idjits in charge of the Dems in Congress the Conservatives could actually thump them even worse in 2012.

****BREAKING NEWS****
We’re breaking into this thread to let readers know MIDDLE EAST TO EXPLODE IN FLAMES NEXT WEEK as Iran lights the fuse on Nuke Plant. All bets are off depending on how the DOTUS handles the “crisis”.
