Press secretary Robert Gibbs said a key theme of 2010 will be asking voters “whether the people they have in Washington are on the side of protecting the big banks, whether they’re on the side of protecting the big oil companies, whether they’re on the side of protecting insurance companies or whether they’re on the people’s side.”
Unless the White House has been relocated, isn’t the Obama administration among “the people” we “have in Washington?” Don’t Dems still have a controlling majority of the House and the Senate? So, do they really want to ask us that question? ‘Cos I’m a lifelong left-liberal Democrat, I’ve given a lot of my time and money to the Dems here in Colorado and nationally over the past six years, and I’ve got an answer for Gibbsy–but I don’t think he wants to hear it.
Awesome politics, White House!
