I don't know him.....

Pelosi Doesn't Know Robert Gibbs, Doesn't Appreciate His Comments

Jul 14 2010, 12:15 PM ET |

That's what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to say at a closed-door House Democratic Caucus meeting last night about White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and his comment Sunday on "Meet the Press" that "there's no doubt there are enough seats in play that could cause Republicans to gain control" of the House. Pelosi apparently has not met Gibbs (who has been downplaying/backtracking from the comment this week) and doesn't know who he is, CQ's Kathleen Hunter and Jennifer Bendery report:

Several Democratic sources in the room described a testy scenario that started with Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (N.J.) criticizing Gibbs for saying on NBC's "Meet the Press" that there is "no doubt there's enough seats in play" to allow for a House GOP takeover in 2012. Things heated up as Pelosi jumped in and blasted Gibbs for making "politically inept" comments, according to one source."It was bad," another source said. "She was like: 'I don't appreciate it. I don't know who this guy is. I've never met him before. And he's saying that we're going to lose the House.'"
