I guess since nobody believed Gibbs then President Obama had to come out and say the same thing......

Obama: WH didn't influence SEC timing on Goldman charges - The Hill's On The Money
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has raised questions over whether the timing of the charges was influenced by the Senate debate on Wall Street reform legislation.

"The American people have a right to know whether the Commission, or any of its officers or employees, may have violated federal law by using the resources of an independent regulatory agency to promote a partisan political agenda." 

In the same interview, Obama said there wouldn't be a partial or temporary extension on the Bush tax cuts for people making more than $250,00 a year beyond their expiration at the end of 2010. 

"We can't afford that step," he said. 

He also said the debt is worse than he realized when he made promises not to raise tax and he will wait for the recommendations of a bipartisan debt panel, which are due Dec. 1.

That allows Obama time to hold off on an potential tax increases for the middle class until after the mid-term elections.
