Stephanopoulos follows the phony "Professional Left" storyline launched by the White House and asks a radical congressman what more the president could have done to satisfy people who find Obama to be not socialist enough.
Liberals aren't happy that Gibbs told The Hill's Sam Youngman that the "professional left" would not be happy unless the U.S. had “Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon.” Gibbs stands by those comments, though he called them inartful, and maintains that liberals will still go to the polls to vote for Democrats this fall.
Everything Gibbs says is for a reason. A fight with the loons makes the White House appear to be more conservative than their socialist allies. A little PR scam designed to fool voters, the full-time pasttime of the Obama folks.
