Gibbs: Libya shouldn't be a campaign issue

Sr. Obama Campaign Adviser Robert Gibbs on the Obama campaign's response to the attacks in Libya.

"I think what we need to do is stop playing politics with this issue. Ambassador Stevens' own father said today this shouldn't be a political issue, this should be an issue we get to the bottom of for our investigation. We should bring those that did this to justice."

Gibbs: Pres. will be more "energetic" during the next debate

Sr. Obama Campaign Adviser Robert Gibbs said Sunday that President Obama will be "more energetic" during the next debate.

On the first debate Gibbs said "I think Mitt Romney's performance was, indeed, magical and theatrical. Magical and theatrical largely because for 90 minutes he walked away from a campaign he had been running for more than six years previous to that."

This Sunday...

Congress begins a 5-week vacation, leaving a long list of unresolved issues. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says Republicans need to revisit their anti-tax pledges and embrace bipartisanship in an effort to solve the country’s debt crisis. He’ll join us live for an exclusive interview.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doubled down on his accusation that Mitt Romney failed to pay taxes for ten years. Obama Campaign Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs is here to tell us what’s behind this elusive claim.

There’s mixed news on the economy as employers added 163,000 jobs in July, but unemployment rose to 8.3%. A Gallup poll this week indicated that only 35% of American business owners approve of President Obama. Many say federal regulations are stifling economic growth. BET Founder Bob Johnson and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina are here to discuss.

We’ll round out the show with some analysis from CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash and Peter Baker of the New York Times.

Watch Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.

Gibbs: "Economy coming back from near collapse"

Senior Obama Campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said Sunday there is still a lot of work left to do to bring the economy back from "near collapse."

Gibbs: "We have made progress, but we have got a long way to go, and this is going to be an election about two different visions."

"We have to grow this economy like we did for years and years and decades from the middle- class out. Let's continue to add opportunity, let's bring this American dream back, let's guarantee that if you work hard and play by the rules, you will have a chance to get ahead, that your children will have a chance to get ahead."
