Talk about Spin - Robert Gibbs on 2010 Election Cycle

“Look at what the President said today,” said Gibbs. “I think that's a lot of what 2010 is going to be about, to be honest with you. I think it's going -- you know, people are going to have to decide whether the people they have in Washington are on the side of protecting the big banks, whether they're on the side of protecting the big oil companies, whether they're on the side of protecting insurance companies, or whether they're on the people's side. I think what he laid out today is what you'll hear him talk a lot about.”

How delusional is this man?  This statement was made on the plane ride back to DC after the President went to try and save the senate race in one of the most liberal states in the country two days before the election. 
Mr. Gibbs, in case you have noticed, the people are figuring out who is on their side, and it isn't you and Pelosi.
