Today, White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, tendered his resignation. Of course, as are all resignations from presidential appointments, he resigned so he could spend more time with his family.
Two curious things… First, Mr. Gibbs style was pretty combative. A style that wouldn’t work well if President Obama desires to appease the “middle of the road” Americans who turned out in droves last November to “unelect” Democrats. That is, if the president hopes to be reelected in 2012.
And second, while speaking to the SoundOffMom on Sunday, she told me that Gibbs had been fired. So, as a “good” journalist , I scoured the internet for any such news, but couldn’t find any.
And no, the SoundOffMom wasn’t one of the two winners of the MegaLottery drawing last night!
So, did he resign of his own volition, or was he asked to resign?
Given the political climate, what do you think?
