Join the “I Knew Robert Gibbs Back When…” Facebook Group

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has found himself at the center of his own Facebook group, aptly titled, “I Knew Robert Gibbs Back When…” The group has 151 members, consisting of what seems to be mostly old friends in his home state of Alabama. Most of the comments are G-rated: “Bobby is my cousin and I agree is a great guy!” However, not all are.

Take for example, this sample comment from group member Nathan Levy: “Knew Bobby G from dear old AHS. He also helped me carry a keg down the mall in D.C. for our Howell Heflin intern 4th of July kegger. What a civil servant. (the keg was heavy)”

Writes ABC News’ Kim Berryman in a story today, “Time will tell what shots will come from the World Wide Web and if the White House Press Secretary is still agile enough to maneuver in an exposed administration.”
