Rep. Grayson Unleashes On Gibbs: "Bozo The Spokesman" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) was typically direct and unsparing in his criticism of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on MSNBC this afternoon.

In response to Gibbs's recent comments about "the professional left" and its dissatisfaction with the Obama administration, Grayson called Gibbs "Bozo the Spokesman" and declared he should be fired.

"I don't think he should resign, I think he should be fired. He's done a miserable job," Grayson said. "He's so far in over his head he'd have to reach up to touch his shoes."

Grayson went on:

I'd like to see Gibbs show some frustration over 15 million unemployed Americans. I'd like to see him show some frustration over 40 million people who can't see a doctor when they need to. I'd like to see him show some frustration over the Republicans, who have blocked the president's plans and his programs ... They're the opponents for him, not the liberals.
