Karl Rove Disses Robert Gibbs

Karl Rove appeared on Fox News (where he’s a contributor) to talk about some of the potential changes at the White House. Specifically, he said that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is eyeballing David Axelrod‘s job as senior adviser once he steps down. But, Mediaite writes, Rove recommends VP Joe Biden’s director of comms Jay Carney to take the adviser position.

Calling Gibbs a “less than adequate press secretary,”  he said Gibbs doesn’t return phone calls or answer e-mails from the press corps. Oh snap!

(Separately, on today’s First Question – the video series where Gibbs answers questions submitted on Twitter – he’s asked about the impact of Twitter on the presidency and whether it’s a good thing. His response: Yes, because people can get answers directly from governing officials.)
