Obama calls Gibbs $174,000 salary ‘relatively modest’…

Perhaps it was the long flight back from Hawaii. But President Obama’s first full day back on the job suggested a slight case of tone deafness.

In bidding a sort-of farewell to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, he noted the “relatively modest pay” for which Gibbs has labored.

In fact, he earns $172,200 in a
