Introducing Robert Gibbs’ Replacement: The New York Times

It’s always fun to hear Robert Gibbs refer to the New York Times as if they’re just an extension of the White House press office, and yesterday was one of those days:

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters on Thursday to read a New York Times story on President Obama’s plans for 2012 when he was asked for details about Obama’s reelection.

The AP’s Ben Feller asked Gibbs if Obama is officially running for reelection.

“I think it is likely that that is going to happen,” Gibbs replied. He continued, alluding to a Times article with information from the White House, “As the article says, the president is likely to file papers in the future that would officially make him a candidate.”

Gibbs is stepping down from his spokesman role, so why not just cut out the middle man and put the New York Times up there at the podium every morning as Obama’s spokesperson instead of a paid staffer? It could save taxpayers $172,000 a year and make it appear the administration is cutting every possible penny from the budget without making one iota of a difference as far as the quality of the information goes. That would be change we could believe in!
