The matter of the Salahis insinuating themselves onto the White House grounds for the State Dinner being given by President and Mrs. Obama for the Prime Minister of India continues to exercise Congress - as it should. I don't like our current White House occupant but I for damned sure don't want anything untoward to happen to him either! Nor do I want his wife and daughters to be endangered in any way by the bad behavior or carelessness of others. Despite the Salahis breezy assertion that they've already talked to the Secret Service, the brass balls required to tell the U.S. Congress to go take a hike is exactly the same kind of brass balls needed to crash a White House State Dinner.

The latest fusillade of childish rhetoric has been (naturally) participated in by Robert Gibbs, the unbearably smug little twerp who is serving as White House Press Secretary and April Ryan of American Urban Radio, in which Gibbs essentially compared Ryan to a petulant child. Ryan said that Desiree Rogers had overstepped the traditional role of her title at the event to become the "belle of the ball," thus "overshadowing the first lady." Frustrated by Ryan's tabloid-y line of questioning, Gibbs instructed her to "calm down" and to take a deep breath," adding "I do this with my son and that's what happens." The smarmy and offensively condescending Gibbs is displaying none of the tact and patience exhibited by predecessors - although it must be said that the White House Press Corps is an unruly bunch, seldom amenable to being kept "on message" much as the White House would like them to do so.

It is my belief that the Obama White House, like the Clinton White House, is staffed with childish and immature people who see only their own self-aggrandizement and have no thought for their responsibilities to the president, his family and the nation that pays their salaries! It is my further belief that Robert Gibbs is a horse's patoot! In spades!
