Must Have Had A Restful Vacation

Robert Gibbs appears to be on his game today. In response to Fourthbranch's rantings on Fox News, he gave the appropriate rejoinder:

I’m not entirely sure that Dick Cheney’s predictions on foreign policy have borne a whole lot of fruit over the last eight years in a way that have been either positive or, to the best of my recollection, very correct.

In other words, why would you give a crap what Dick Cheney has to say?

Later, asked about Mike Enzi attacking health care reform while also serving as one of the key bipartisan negotiators, Gibbs replied:

"In Senator Enzi's case, he doesn't believe there's a pathway to get bipartisan support and the President thinks that's wrong," Gibbs said. "I think Senator Enzi's clearly turned over his cards on bipartisanship and decided that it's time to walk away from the table."

Now it's time for the President to walk away from the table. Not sure if Gibbs' new, more aggressive approach signals something similar from Obama, but I know that the base would reward such feistiness.
