 Robert Gibbs: ‘Angry’ night ‘full of insults’

In Tampa to lead the pushback for President Barack Obama’s campaign, top adviser Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that the first night of the Republican National Convention was “angry” and “strange” and “full of insults.”

“I’m kind of flabbergasted at the whole night,” Gibbs said on MSNBC after Gov. Chris Christie’s keynote speech. “It seemed first and foremost like this was a very angry convention tonight full of insults.”

He said that the night’s speakers, including House Speaker John Boehner, did not capture the struggles most Americans — particularly women — are facing.

“It bore just no real resemblance to what’s going on in their party. It bore no real resemblance to what’s going on in the country. I think it was a very, very strange night,” he said, later adding, “The night was sort of highlighted by lots of anger and lots of insults.”

Gibbs watched the speeches from inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

”I was in the convention. And I think folks were a little surprised, they did a few double takes but they were quite cordial,” he said with a laugh.

Hmmm.  Someone was either indulging in some really powerful, illegal, narcotics, or else he's just lying through his teeth.
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI

Nice to see Gibbsy can still spout that same old line of bullshit. 

The fact is the Democrats entire strategy is to be offended that the Republicans are even running against Hussein.  They are not defending the policies of the last four years as successful, they are out demonizing the opposition for even existing and daring to challenge Obama in any way.

He's with MSNBC, reality, objectivity and truth don't have much of a place with that cesspool of a network.

He called that an angry night full on insults?  Really?  I thought it was tame and not nearly energizing enough.
