It appears that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is thinking about making a move from the podium to the “stand-up” comedy stage:
Asked for a response to Monday’s tracking poll, which placed Obama’s approval numbers among the lowest of any recent president in December of his first year in office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs mocked the reliability of the widely respected polling firm.
“I tell you, if I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG, I’d visit my doctor,” Gibbs said. “If you look back, I think five days ago, there was an 11-point spread, now there’s a 1-point spread. I mean, I’m sure a 6-year-old with a crayon could do something not unlike that. I don’t put a lot of stake in, never have, in the EKG that is the daily Gallup trend.”
This reference to a “six year old” comes on the heels of his arrogant and condescending remarks to journalist April Ryan last week, referring to her angst over his lack of response to questions about Social Director Desiree Rogers, by comparing her to his young son.

It has been noted that Hillary Clinton, once Obama’s rival, has kept a somewhat low profile since she became the Secretary of State. Whether this is f her own accord, as strategist Dick Morris suggests, or at the manipulations of Axelrod and Emanuel, is a matter for debate. What is known, this week, from Gallup polls, is that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers now outshine her “healthcare Afghanistan Nobel Peace” beleagured boss:
According to a just-released Gallup Poll, Hillary Clinton is actually more popular than her boss, with Clinton retaining a 62 percent favorability rating to Barack Obama’s 56 percent. In the days and weeks surrounding Obama’s inauguration, this seemed all but impossible, with the new president then polling at 78 percent favorable to Clinton’s 65 percent.
Figure in the president and administration’s marginalization of the Secretary of State by, among other things, running afoul of her reported advice on such matters as the post-election violence in Iran and the ouster of former Honduran president Manuel Zelaya, and it’s surprising that she has maintained her rating and he has not.
Among Democrats, Obama has slipped from 95 percent favorable in January to 89 percent today, whereas Clinton has only dropped from 93 to 91 percent. Among Republicans, Obama’s rating has plummeted from a mind-blowing 60 percent in post-Inauguration January to 19 percent today, while Clinton has stayed even at 35 percent. Among crucial independents, Obama has dropped almost 25 points from 75 to 52 percent, while Clinton has seen only a marginal decrease in favorability, from 61 to 55 percent.

A recent Gallup poll shows that more Americans take a “Pro-Life” stance with regard to abortion issues, for the first time in the polls.
