Posted on 04/27/2012 11:27:38 AM PDT by ColdOne
White House press secretary Jay Carney offered some rare insight into his job Friday, telling reporters he never lies in response to their questions, even when he knows more than he can say.
When I go stand up at the podium in front of the White House press corps, I never lie. I never say something that I know is untrue, Carney said at a scholarship lunch hosted by the White House Correspondents Association ahead of this weekends festivities. Credibility is enormously important to a press secretary.

The he added....I say exactly what he tells me to say...Then it’s not a lie...at least not my lie...
There is such a thing as a lie of omission. There is such a thing as selectively choosing some true statements and deliberately omitting others to create a dishonest narrative. Carney has been very dishonest in his role in the Obama Administration. He often refuses to answer questions, gives partial or unresponsive answers and plays word games to avoid giving accurate information.
He probably also tells outright lies. I just can't remember one at this time.
“I never lie. And I’m not lying right now. And I never will lie. “Suck-up Imperial Conditioning”(*) prevents me from lying.
(*) See under “Wellington Yueh” in Frank Herbert’s novel ‘Dune’.
He merely ignores reality and substitutes his own.
So said Pinocchio
That's a lie.
Repeapting a lie is the same as telling one. Presuming you know it to be a lie. This precludes the fact that Carney really knows anything...
Ha! Of course he doesn’t lie ... he just suffers from a lack of veracity.
I never lie. I just don’t tell the truth.
The Cretans never lie.
“I’m a real boy!”
What if he thinks everything he says is the truth to him? People who say things and believe what they say. Is not half of our country this way today. There are some out there that actually think Barry is doing great?
....except for just now but actually, if you think about it, it all kinda depends on what the definition of is, is.
If a serial liar tells you he never lies, what does that prove?
Mr Claire Shipman is a propagandist and thus cannot be a liar...
what word do they use?
SOCIALIST LIBERAL DEMOCRATS NEVER LIE. In their warped idealogical thinking they are just telling THE NOBLE TRUTH. This fraud in nothing but a PAID LIAR. LIBERALISM ITSELF IS NOTHING BUT A LIE
Clever. When he stands, he’s vertical, not horizontal, so he can say one thing, mean another, and convince himself he told truth in the service of illusion.
