When all other content wells have run dry, its a comfort to know that Jay Carney will be there to say something untrue and keep the bloggy gears turning. -------------------------------------------------
"White House press secretary Jay Carney criticized press reports Tuesday that said donors in Boston booed the president when he made a joke about the Red Soxs trade of popular third baseman Kevin Youkilis
There has been some really silly reporting about the presidents remarks regarding Kevin Youkilis last night. It is highly commendable in my view as a Red Sox fan that the president has always refused to pander on sports, said Carney. He is a White Sox fan, he owns his fandom of the White Sox. He proved that again last night.
Anyone who knows Boston, knows the Red Sox and anyone who was in that room last night knows that the preponderance of people shouting in response to what the president said about Kevin Youkilis were saying Yoooook and not Booo, for Gods sake, Carney said. ------------------------------------------------
No, actually, Im pretty sure the preponderance of people there knew that they were booing, in part because Obama ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THEY WERE BOOING. Thats the only wrinkle that makes this clip interesting, in fact: Despite O conceding at the time that the crowd was hooting at him for teasing them about the Youkilis deal, Carneys shill discipline is so strong that hes willing to contradict his own boss in order to push the most flattering (albeit unrealistic) spin. He could have dismissed the medias dumb questions about this by laughing it off and saying that O likes to have fun with the donors whove come to see him, but no. As soon as a reporter brought up the idea of the president being booed, Pavlovs bell rang, Carney started to drool, and he lurched for the of course the president wasnt being booed! spin. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz couldnt have done it any better. I hope The One gave him a biscuit afterward.
Glad that was settled..... It’s not like there Isn’t any more important things going on .....
They were saying “Boooo-rack!”
Good thing the appearance wasn’t at an Astros game. Some debris may have been added to the boos.
Unmitigated BULLSHIT...they WERE booing Obama...and everybody knows it. Granted, others are putting the words in this "sock-puppet's" mouth, but how can the man? stand up there and be ridiculed, reviled, and castigated day after day after day. He must be a complete "pink panty poofster"!!
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
"I'm not being defensive! You're the one who's being defensive! Why is always the other person who's being defensive? Have you ever asked yourself that? Why don't you ask yourself that?"
Saw the clip of Obama being booed. He was LIVID. Not necessarily at the audience (although probably) but at the stupid aides who set him up. Why else would he sulkily say: “You gotta know your audience.” I think he knows NOTHING about baseball.
Then go find something important.
I think he also knows nothing about the Anerican spirit, but he sure as hell will find out come November.
He is a White Sox fan, he owns his fandom of the White Sox. He proved that again last night.
Commander Zero wouldn’t know who Frank Thomas or Harold Baines were unless they became left wing lobbyists in the employ of the evil George $oros.
I can’t wait for November. I have had enough of this mindless pandering for a lifetime.
The dumbfounded look on his face and nervous laughter was classic!
