White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was prepared when asked about Dick Cheney’s criticisms of the administration.

Gibbs defended Obama, saying he is keeping the nation safe while dealing with problems George W. Bush’s administration did not.


“Well, I guess Rush Limbaugh was busy,” Gibbs said to laughter during his daily briefing with reporters. “So they trotted out the next most popular member of the Republican cabal.”


In response to Cheney’s suggestion that the White House is trying to take advantage of the economic crisis to expand government, Gibbs said, “I think not taking economic advice from Dick Cheney would be maybe the best possible outcome of yesterday’s interview.”
