After yesterday calling Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the “elected leader” of Iran, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs reversed himself today, Reuters reports:
“Let me correct a little bit of what I said yesterday. I denoted that Mr. Ahmadinejad was the elected leader of Iran. I would say that’s not for me to pass judgment on,” Gibbs told reporters aboard Air Force One.
Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. Absolute amateur hour.
