BREAKING!! New White House press secretary says Libya crisis not about Muammar Qadhafi!!
politico ^ | 02/24/2011 | p

Posted on 02/24/2011 11:15:21 AM PST by milwguy

Carney brushes aside a question on why Obama was comfortable using Hosni Mubarak's name but not Muammar Qadhafi's. "I wouldn't read over -- read too much into that, because the overlying principle here is that it's not about the individual leaders," he says.

Qadhafi is committing genocide in Libya, he has killed Americans in a Berlin Disco and blown an American 747 out of the sky. He is a brutal dictator and the reason the people are rising up in Libya is entirely because of Qadhafi.

To use a phrase from our Secretary of State, to believe Libya is not ALL about Qadhafi would require a 'willing suspension of disbelief'. Where did they find this box of rocks? he is dumber than even Beltway Bobby Gibbs.

Maybe they would prefer to talk about the fact that Al Qeada has found a new home in Libya.

Carney was a great understudy to Fibbs, they both know how to dig and dig deep. <Jay Carney, he's shovel ready.

It can be embarrassing to be the public face of an administration who’s constituency is almost entirely composed of the population to the left of the bell curve’s center line.

In fairness to Carney, he was winging it because he got zero guidance from Zero who was too busy getting ready for “What’s going On”, Motown Night at the WH.

because the overlying principle here is that it's not about the individual leaders," he says.

And how does this square with the fact that Obama repeatedly mentioned the name of Mubarack, and said that he MUST step down?

I know. In the new left wing dispensation, logic no longer applies. But still . . . .

I fear that he is detaining Americans on the ferry to act as shields against our (Nato’s) action to stop his genocide. Their are 600 Americans trying to leave and stuck “on account of weather”.

I don't think the people are uprising because Quadaffy has murdered innocent Americans. In their minds,that is one of the good things he has done.

This guy Carney, is even more clueless that former Chief Propaganda Minister Gibbs, and less experienced in lying.

I agree with the fact his people are not troubled by his murdering Americans, but I was saying it is ALL about Qadhafi because now he is slaughtering his own people. It is not like Egypt where Mubarak did not tell his troops to open fire, his generals kept the situation under control. Qadhafi is a delusional maniac who has no regard for human life. To infer it is not all about Qadhafi is one of the most deplorable comments that have come out of the White House in my lifetime.

Pretty simple dynamic here:
Mubarak = US Ally = Obama Enemy,
Quadafi = US Enemy = Obama Friend

Breaking? How about BROKEN!

Seriously, Obama is starkly, amazingly, unacceptably clueless.

This is merely one more jaw-dropping moment, to add to all the rest.

Here's an easy question Barry. How can you condemn the actions of a man when you refuse to say his name?

The answer: You can't.

No this is the guy that was the aid to the gaffe master Joe Biden. So is Joe Biden Dumb and Jay carney Dumber. Lets face it America we have a court jester as the spokesperson and all the kings men are dimwits. the king is Humpty dumpty and he has fallen on his head so many times that he is punch drunk. Is truly possible that Odumbo suffered a traumatic brain injury thus resulting in the various scar lines that are evident when his hair is closely cut. someone posted pictures in the past. Because Odumbo and Biden are Dumb and Dumberer the White House Spokesperson only fits the image.

Of all the poor choices for VP, SOS, Chiefs of Staff and Press Secretaries: BO has put so many incompetents in the public eye. And think about the one thing they have in common.
