Yesterdays WH Press briefing
NORAH ODONNELL: On that very point that its been the presidents position all along, in Dec. 2010, when he advocated an extension of all of the Bush tax cuts including those for the wealthiest Americans, he argued that raising taxes would be a blow to our economy. So whats different now from then?
CARNEY: The presidents position has always been that we should permanently extend the tax cuts for middle-class Americans and that we should no longer extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. At the time, from the question, there was a package of proposals that passed that helped the economy at a time it was very vulnerable that the president signed into law. What he made clear at the time was that he would not in the future support a measure that would extend tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. And it was a point made by independent economists and others at the timeand theyre making it again nowthat when were talking about positive effects on the economy, it is tax cuts to middle-class Americans that produce that positive effect. It is not tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, who tend not to spend that money as quickly or as readily as hard-working, middle-class Americans, and the cost of extending those tax cuts is $65 millionIm talking about the high-end$65 billion for one year, close to a trillion over ten, is prohibitive, we cant afford it, and it does not work as a matter of macroeconomic policy. Weve seen what happened in the period from 2001 to 2008. We saw the impact of those policy decisions

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“Obama pledges to NOT reduce tax rates on bottom 98% of Americans”
>>> The reporters smell blood
Yet they can only go after the hapless SpokesKid. And nobody watches WH press briefings anymore.
WHEN will ‘reporters’ go after Obama for real?
“Reporter Crushes Jay Carney Over Obama Tax Trick”
The last reporter who “crushed” Obama with a hardball question was bashed without shame for a week.
This question and response were prepared and pre-approved.
They fear the TOTUS.....rumor has it there's now a laser beam death ray.
You got that right. When Norah O’Donnell is giving a Democrat a hard time, there is blood in the water indeed.
Weren’t O’Donnell and Carney a couple at one time?
I call him ‘The Affirmative Actrocity’.
“They fear the TOTUS.....rumor has it there’s now a laser beam death ray.”
Snopes quickly qaushed this rumor in one of their 337 posts about Obama today, saying, “Why would anyone believe that the Great Obama has a death ray in his teleprompter? It does have an “immobilization” ray, to keep him safe from hard right wingers. Anyone who would believe otherwise must be a hard right winger.”
JK, but it does sound like his worshippers at Snopes, who excrete more than 300 posts PER DAY to support Hussein.
Why does any one, any where, really care what this O’Donnell babe or any other reporter in the lame-stream, liberal-left, progressive-communist, out-of-touch with reality media thinks or says? I have stopped watching/listening, to ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN or CNBC NEWS in years.
Ha, if that’s true, that completely explains the mildly tough question. A woman scorned...
O’Donnell lately has been posing tought questions on Carney. I think she despises him and his snarly answers.
Something happened between the two, I just cannot remember what it was?
Is there any post about Wookie Super Secret Ninja Death Chop?
I’m pretty sure that Lawrence O’Donnell is not her brother but I do know his brother lives in my town in MA. Believe it or not he’s a mover and shaker in Republican politics.
How long before Carney gets sick of lying, spinning, and covering for Ubama and the rats?
Of course, Carney has no shame to begin with so he likely doesn’t care.
I hope someone asked why just a one year extension?
