RGN1 is Robert Gibbs’ personal mutation of H1N1.
Solely from the transcript you’d think it had infected State Department spokesman Ian Kelly as Obama administration talking points get the better him because of some persistent questioning.
You have to watch the video to get the full flavor of Mr. Kelly’s responses. He tries the talking points, but clearly does not buy them himself. He does his best, but he just can’t say such silly things with a straight face. (Go to about 14:50)
If Mr. Kelly has contracted RGN1, the virus has definitely attenuated. He has the decency to be embarrassed. If only he had not said, “…we are less than a year into this Administration, and I think we’ve accomplished more over the last year than the previous administration did in eight years.”
It would be nice to know who asked the questions that cornered Mr. Kelly. CSPAN does not provide this information, but the man should be asking questions in the White House.
