NPR: ...[F]ew press secretaries have ever done more harm to a president they could so easily have helped. Gibbs, who announced today that he will exit his position in early February, following in the footsteps of much of the rest of the team that came to the White House from the 2008 campaign, was never a particularly good communicator. A bland and forgettable player during a long presidential run when the focus was almost exclusively on the candidate, Gibbs emerged shortly after the election as the face of the new administration. That proved to be politically disastrous for the president. Thin-skinned and prone to attacking friendly critics, he did more than anyone except former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to create and expand the progressive "enthusiasm gap" that so harmed Democrats in the 2010 election cycle. Noting the "contempt" that Emanuel, Gibbs and other departing administration aides displayed for grassroots Democrats — and progressive values — former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean got the sentiment right when he said Wednesday: "As they say, don't let the door hit you in the you-know-what on the way out."....Answer Question
If he wasn't good for them, then why is he going to work on Obama's campaign going forth? Or is this a way to throw him under the bus?
