Whatever pisses off Robert Gibbs is a good thing, right? From Politico:
“Brownie” — former FEMA director blamed for the White House’s sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina — claimed the Obama administration let the Gulf oil leak get worse so they could retract its own promise to expand exploratory offshore drilling.
“I would not be surprised if the White House said, you know, we might be able to, guess what, do what? Use this crisis to our advantage. Let this crisis get really bad, and then we will step in,” Brown told Neil Cavuto. “We will be able to shut down offshore drilling. We will be able to turn to all these alternate fuels.”
Robert Gibbs got pissed off about it and lambasted Fox News correspondent Wendall Goler because Fox News aired his views.
I don’t know if his theory has merit, but you know that there isn’t much beneath this administration, so it is at least plausible. My two responses to his theory are: 1) Why didn’t I think of that? And 2) A stuck pig squeals the loudest. Heckuva job, “Brownie.”
