Skip to comments.Carney rewrites Bidenís audacious claim
Posted on 03/20/2012 6:35:42 PM PDT by Nachum
White House spokesman Jay Carney carefully deflected Vice President Joe Bidens Monday night declaration that the successful raid on Osama bin Ladens hideout was the most audacious military strike in 500 years.
He meant the decision the president made was a very difficult one, said Carney, when asked about Bidens gaffe. When youre president, you have to make the tough decisions.
Carney kept a straight face amid laughter from journalists attending the press conference.
But Carney stepped back when asked if the bin Laden raid was more audacious that the D-Day landings on the Nazi-held Normandy coast in June 1944.
Well, the historical assessments, Ill leave to him and others, Carney said.
Bidens assessment of his boss rates Obama above other leaders, including President Abraham Lincoln, F.D.R., Gen. Dwight Eisenhower and George S. Patton, or Gen. DoLittle, who flew ground-based bombers off an aircraft carrier in 1942 on a one-way mission to attack Tokyo targets.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Carney is Obama’s Baghdad Bob.
One day he will have to live outside the White House and he will have nothing but a reputation as a Brown nosing sack of dog doo.
...Vice President Joe Bidens Monday night declaration that the successful raid on Osama bin Ladens hideout was the most audacious military strike on one man in 500 years since Cleopatra hid in a rug.
Somehow having a Carney barking for Biden makes a lot of sense.
So Obama caught Bin Laden in only 2 years but Richard Nixon landed a man on the moon in only 1 year’s time!!!
I can’t imagine how miserable that job must be. Even with all the MSM in Obama’s pocket, there has to be some times when getting out of his chair to go meet the press must be the worst form of Hell.
I just picked up “Biden’s Greatest Gaffes, the Box Set” at the 99-Cent Store.
You are so right!
I don’t like Carney much, but this was a pretty serviceable play on his part. Trying to backfill a Biden gaffe is pretty tough work. He earned his pay today.
It was just that “audacity of hope” thing.
IIRC, didn't they have to drag odumbo off the golf course to give the go ahead for the mission?
At this point I’m pretty certain Biden makes Quayle, and Spiro-Gyro look like geniuses.
He’s got to be the most uncouth SOB to occupy this office.
Slo Joe strikes again
If it succeeds Obama's a hero. If it fails, who needs to know?
I see the difficulty.
Or to put it another way....a natural for the host of an MSNBC talk show.
Actually, the mission already was in progress. General Hussein just went back to the WH for the photo op and to not be on the 17th green when OBL was taken down.
No joke or anything. He really is. The guy is nuts and he proves it every time he opens he mouth.
I hope whatever he has is diagnosed. He seems like the crazy old guy type who would refuse to go to the doctor even though it is obvious to everyone that something is wrong.
Hes got to be the most uncouth SOB to occupy this office.
Yep, and if he was a Republican he would already have been forced to resign by the ridicule heaped on him by the MSM.
