Kucinich to Gibbs: You've Read the Liberals Wrong

Thursday, 12 Aug 2010 07:38 AM


A Democrat whose name was invoked by President Barack Obama's spokesman in an attack on the party's liberal wing says the White House doesn't understand deep public frustration over the troubled economy.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that press secretary Robert Gibbs shouldn't have attacked the "professional left."

Gibbs had said liberals were too hard to please and that they wouldn't be content even with Kucinich, a renowned progressive, as president.

The Ohio Democrat said, "Those of us who call ourselves liberal say we're not going to rest until we get back to a full employment economy." Asked if he would challenge Obama for the party's nomination in 2012, Kucinich, who ran in 2008, replied, "No."
