Skip to comments.Jake Tapper Grills Jay Carney: We Know Obama Attends Fundraisers, What Is He Doing To Create
Posted on 08/04/2011 4:31:56 PM PDT by Nachum
With stocks plunging on Wall Street, tensions were rising in todays White House press briefing as ABCs Jake Tapper relentlessly demanded Press Secretary Jay Carney explain exactly what it is that President Obama is doing to help create new jobs. When Carney suggested Obama is urging Congress to pass legislation, Tapper got agitated and responded, so the same stuff he was doing a couple months ago, calling on Congress to pass things?Critics of Obama will no doubt applaud Tappers efforts here, yet even supporters of the President cant fault Tapper for forcefully demanding answers.

A crack in the armour protecting the usurper?
This creates jobs for PresstiTutes of course.
I don’t know Tapper’s politics, but it almost sounds like the media is less willing to cover for Obama.
Tapper: What is the President doing to help create jobs.
Carney: The President is having meeting with his senior staff...
Gee, poor Carney. I almost feel sorry for the guy for having to defend Obama The Disaster.
He's a lefty, but Tapper is a pure political animal and isn't entirely afraid to go after the hypocrisy and nonsense his own side spews.
Read the comments!
It’s not a crack; it’s a sign of panic. Tapper is a liberal Dem like all the other MSMers. He’s watching Obama implode and doesn’t like it. Compare it watching your favorite Olympic marathoner gorge on donuts and neglect his training day after day. After a while you might say, ‘But *how* are you going to win a gold medal?’.
You don’t ask because you hope he’ll lose. You ask in hopes of snapping him out of it.
Careful Jake or you’ll be scratched from the White House Christmas card list.
Nice. It would seem that the public is losing patience.
300 new regulations in July.
you figure out where the jobs are
Does this White House issue “Christmas” cards, or only generic “holiday” cards???????
Zer0 needs to turn the WH grounds into an Arugula Plantation.
OMG!! Even his stupid APRON hs the Presidential SEAL!! What a farce.
OMG!! Even his stupid APRON hs the Presidential SEAL!! What a farce.
Who wears a tie to a cookout? What a nerdy brutha.
Maybe the left wing press is so afraid obama is going to lose to a republican, say Palin, they’re willing to primary his butt. Of course they’d better hurry.
Jake Tapper is a big brave man facing down Mr. Claire Shipman, but when given a chance to challenge TOTUS face to face, Jake Tapper shrinks.
By the way, when Mr. Claire Shipman spewed out that crap about calling on Congress to sign free trade agreements...where was Jake with the “Oh, you mean those free trade agreements Hussein OPPOSED when he was in the Senate?” or when Mr. Claire Shipman spoke about the work Hussein had put in about raising the debt limit, where was Jake with “Oh, you mean the debt limit Hussein OPPOSED in 2006 and didn’t even bother to VOTE on in 2007 and 2008?”
We have a Hussein-whipped media in the White House press corps(e).
Don't do it, Signalman. It's a trap! He's a pod person, too.
Poor Jay Carney. He doesn’t have the instant answer machine at his disposal, like Obama with his teleprompter, which is always at the ready.
There’s no doubt they are feverishly trying to decide whether to primary him. I just checked RealClearPolitics, and even with all the crap polls [heavily weighted to favor Dems] added in Obama is still at -6.2 approve/disapprove, with 44 approving and 50.2 disapproving. If the polling samples were accurate, Obama would be in the low thirties.
There are plenty of Dems who want him primaried. The fury of black voters will militate against it, though. Dems can’t afford to tick that big a voting block off en masse.
I was just going to comment on the same thing.
Just in case we all forgot he was President...
You dont ask because you hope hell lose. You ask in hopes of snapping him out of it.
An astute and IMO totally accurate analysis. Or, in other words, "Exactly!"
He turns up on Laura Ingraham's show now and again and is pretty good.
And yeah, he is one of the few dinosaur media types I pay attention to. Still, make no mistake, he's an old Salon.com lefty.
Tapper is very left wing, but he was a big supporter of Hilary Clinton and believed that Obama’s crafty caucus strategy was a betrayal of the primary process. So his view is that Obama is an illegitimate empty suit. He is no conservative, but he also never drank the Obama Flavor-Aid either.
Hell...his main "jobs" man General Electric's Jeffrey Immelt is sending them over to China.
Anyone wanting to know where the hell the money is
going, just needs to look at the embroidery on that
apron. A Presidential apron? Why not just plain?
Are they all like that? Crapola that stuff adds up.
But, it’s not like it was THEIR money!
Exactly how he looked too. He looked exasperated. Like he wanted to yell "why isn't it working??"
Especially when people in your party do something stupid.
Thanks riri, for conveying what Tapper looked like when he posed the question. The smarter MSMers—and there are precious, *precious* few of them—are catching on to the impending electoral disaster that’s brewing, and it’s scaring them to death. We conservatives have had a rough 2.5 years, and we don’t look for it to get much better over the 1.5.
But Nov. ‘12 will be our time. It’s shaping up to be a landslide—maybe even, to use Obama’s favorite word, ‘unprecedented’.
It can’t happen soon enough.
What a picture! If ever a woman looked like her IQ, it’s Wasserman Schultz.
Still, the Ace of Spades did call her his ideal woman. ‘Dumb as a chicken’, and not particularly good looking. He said his male ego is not such that it requires a gorgeous woman, so WS fit his bill to a tee. [Of course, he meant it all in humor. ;) ]
bahahahah...seal on his apron...oh and he burnt the chicken
I agree with you that Obama is an electoral loser but because of the black vote the Dems can’t primary him. It’s almost fun to watch them squirm.
In fact I’d be willing to bet there is only one way Obama wins reelection: the Pubs nominate another gutless moron. And that’s what makes me squirm.
I’m with you in hoping the GOP eschews a RINO or otherwise gutless and unacceptable candidate. However, I believe Obama will be so unpopular by Nov ‘12 we could win even with a weak nominee. The only thing that could lose it for us is a three way race. Trump is talking about doing that, but if he doesn’t somebody else probably will. This is how a hugely unpopular Duval Patrick got a second term in MA, and he is an Obama mentor. So we know that is their plan. Let’s hope and pray it fails to materialize.
Jay Carney used to be on the political shows. Someone more savvy than myself should go to the archives and see things he said about Bush and the economy over the years.
