Carney: ‘I Never Lie’
Free Beacpm ^ | 4/27/12 | staff

Posted on 04/27/2012 2:14:18 PM PDT by Nachum

Jay Carney said he never lies in his capacity as White House press secretary at a Friday scholarship lunch hosted by the White House Correspondents’ Association:

JAY CARNEY: So I don’t have these moments of crisis very much. Credibility’s enormously important for press secretaries. All of the predecessors, my living predecessors, I spoke with all of them before I took this job. I knew all of them, already. Whether they served a Republican president or a Democratic one, they all talked about the need to maintain your credibility. Which means, when I go and stand up in front of the podium, in front of the White House press corps, I never lie. I never say something that I know is not true. That means when I don’t know the answer to something, I say I don’t know and I’ll take that question, that means that when I—which is often the case, I know more than I can say—I answer it in a way that is truthful without obviously betraying the things that I can’t say for national security reasons or other reasons. But that’s—it’s a fundamental principle of doing the job that, for the folks who cover a president, they have to have some faith–substantial faith—that while they know I can’t say everything, and those who work for the president can’t say everything, what we are saying is true.

Carney has made a number of questionable statements as press secretary, however.

Carney told reporters in April that the president had never argued the Buffett Rule

Kind of like that riddle where you need to get information from two guys. One of them always lies, and the other always tells the truth.

In this case, it’s pretty clear which one Carney is. He never tells the truth. Ever.

He is just a press secretary for a spokesperson for the person behind the scenes who calls the shots but is never seen.

I’m sure he believes everything he says, which means he is delusional, not a liar.

Once you learn to believe any bulls**t you spout, you never have to lie.

Carney: ‘I Never Lie’,>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Joseph Goebbels said the same thing as Carney.

Carney is the propaganda mouth piece for a liberal fascist, angry, narcist president. Therefore he is loathable.

Carney perpetrates the presidents lies, and makes sure that no single press member asks embarrassing contradictive questions about the presidents lies. That’s credibility? Buahahahahahahaha!

Most liars lie about lying. It is endemic to the breed, and Carney is clearly no exception.

WH reporters need to wear hazmat suits from now on. The verbal crap out of this guy’s mouth is incredible.

Of course, God forbid that 0bama actually give a press conference.

Guess it depends on the meaning of 'never'. - or lie. Have no doubt, however, that Carney could pass - a lie detector test.

“Credibility’s enormously important for press secretaries”

No it’s not. No one believes anything they say.

“Kind of like that riddle where you need to get information from two guys. One of them always lies, and the other always tells the truth.”

By the way, the solution is to ask either what the other guy would say. Whichever you ask, the opposite is true.

Wasn’t it Reagan who said something like (paraphrasing) “The trouble with our liberal friends isn’t that they’re ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

Hey, Varney. Can you tell us more about these three ‘Sandra Flukes’ you personally know? We understand that there are only two Sandra Flukes in this country. What country is this third one from?

I keep hearing people in the (other) media...people I really admire like Prager and Medved... say words like prevaricate, or mendacious when referring to Obama and his band of fools. I'm kind of getting sick of it. It's time to call a spade a spade. The word is lie or liar.

But, yeah...I like words...the Pressboy does prevaricate.

I'm so...so...sick of this group.

Take away the Nazi cultural trappings, substitute the Obama Logo, and it looks like the Obama Chicago Rally from 2008.

“Zeig Heil!” has been substituted with “”A leader who can deliver change,” and “Hope and Change!”

In German “Hope and Change!” would be, “Zeig Hoffnung und ändern!”

Notice internationally how the German, Italian and Japanese peoples have not really taken to Obama? They have seen it ALL before and REMEMBER.

To quote George Costanza, “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”

Now, does that little puke really believe what he says? I doubt he even know what he is saying. I think he is just regurgitating Obama/Soros approved answers.
