Carney’s entire response is essentially, “nuh-uh!”
"The White House says the visit is official business not campaign-related, although the distinction is not always clear. Obama will speak to troops and have a round-table discussion with service members and military families, the White House said.
I was just listening to ABC News on the radio. Romney’s trip had been in the works for days.Gov. Jindal asked him to come down.
#1 priority: bait Obama into losing his temper in public for 15-20 seconds. Election over.
Let Americans get a true measure of this petulant hoodlum.
Unbelievable. Just as he “wasn’t watching” the RNC, only to be caught posting a photo of a chair at 12:30 a.m., every statement they put out is nothing but lies. If EmptyChair had any intention on visiting Louisiana he would have stopped off on his way to Texas.
The only reason he’s now putting it off until Monday is to try to distance the fact that his trip is nothing more than a “Me too” moment.
The Empty Chair is speaking right now. Started with yelling out to the crowd Word Up.
Want to bet he ordered the entire base to appear.
Big deal. Just go down and check the place out. Lousiana got a bunch of money from the federal government and was begging for more. I am sure they will be fine without either of them going. I can’t believe with 16 trillion in debt these two jerks are worried about who gets where first.
“obviously when you’re president of the United States, coordinating travel carries with it I think unique logistical challenges,” Carney said. “
Ordering bubble wrap so the damn chair can be shipped south is hard to do on short notice...
Saw the post earlier today. Pic of Obama, “I have a bracelet too.”
If Obama had really planned to visit Louisiana ... a state he cannot win ... he would be doing it today on his way to Texas.
They’re such liars!
Gotta laugh about the infantile behavior of the vaunted ‘smartest man ever’.
For about three seconds.
Then it gets scary that the infantile ‘smartest man ever’ is in charge of this country.
According to the Boston Globe, Obama was planning to sign another EO today regarding vets’ mental health needs, to coincide with his trip to Ft. Bliss. Louisiana wasn’t mentioned as part of his itinerary.
There he goes - off to NOLA!
I actually LOL’d. Thank goodness I am the only one in the office today.
Check out post #43. What’s there was also posted earlier in another thread. So, either Jennifer Psaki, earlier this morning, had no clue about Obama already having plans to visit LA, or ABC Radio is wrong, or ABC Radio is trying to cover for the administration.
Hmm, I wonder which one it is...
Might I say he is looking a little agitated!
This AM @ around 0915 or so, Chris Plante WMAL AM 630 Washington DC had said Romney was going to NOLA, BO was headed to Ft Bliss - Plante threw in the ‘fact’ that from WashDC to Ft Bliss BO would be able to do a ‘fly over’ of NO and then would go on to FT Bliss for a ‘photo op’.
He then ‘wondered’ what excuse the regime would use as no one bought GW Bush’s of not going to NO so as not to get in the way of the rescuers....
He’s probably not lying.
In about April of 2009 Obama told his staff, “when there is another hurricane in NOLA, I will go.....I will be there for the people”
Hey now! That’s $3!!! Oh wait, they’ve upped it to $5 for this latest “Donation Deadline”! I got emails direct from Bammy, his Mammy and Senile Joe just yesterday!!!
“Chair Force One” LOL.....

Junior O’Daniel: We could hire our own midget, even shorter than his.
Pappy O’Daniel: Wouldn’t we look like a bunch of Johnny-come-latelies, bragging on our own midget, doesn’t matter how stumpy.
are you a visitor here at Free Republic? AKA a Troll.
because that bold BLANTANT LIE is a Democrat talking point..
a democrat, liberal that I sometimes blog with uses it in his comments and just like you posted..
I would love to know who the loud mouth handlers are for Romney. He should have just showed up there and when questioned, answered: We just wanted to show up and support the people of the State of Louisiana and the affected areas without making it a big deal. It is afterall about the people and not the news story.
All that happens while obama has his hand out in Texas someplace.
Would have been classic to see how fast they could have gotten AF1 in the air.
Great catch!!! Thank you.
What a bunch of liars.
“President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.”
Mr Carney, YOU LIE!
Pretty much sums up every one of your posts.
The Prevaricator in Chief has spoken.
two more months.. and then four more months.. arrgghhh..
“A Romney aide told ABC News that Romney would ‘join Governor Jindal and will meet with first responders, thank them for their work and see areas impacted by the storm’ in LaFitte, Louisiana, some 20 miles south of New Orleans.”
So you think Romney should have turned down Governor Jindal’s invitation?
Excellent, excellent read:
So many good points .... here’s one:
Yet he is still nothing more than a small man — so afraid people will see — a man loath to allow those who would dare the freedom to do what they have always been free to do — pre-Barack, of course. He knows better, because after all, he knows best. It’s always the pretentiously petite and the intellectually bankrupt who scream the loudest and profess to have all the ideas — just don’t ask them what those ideas are.
A realization of reality, a lack of self-confidence, a metaphorical mirror affording him the opportunity to see who he really is, has manifested itself in the manifold narcissism we see in our child king today — for he is nothing, if not our savior. He understands nothing — he sees nothing. It’s about him. It’s always been about him, despite what he says. We are merely pawns in his quest to be recognized as the greatest man to have ever lived — the one. The oceans will cease to rise, and the planet will begin to heal, because they must...
This is so transparent it’s embarrassing to even watch.
When Obama gets the 3am call he’ll be able to get on Air Force One and head to Offutt for safety 3 days later. But Mitt Romney will already be there when the supposed POTUS arrives.
If I were Bobby Jindal, I would say “I’m too busy to be bothered with or by you”.
Know that won’t happen, but it’s such a pleasant thought :^)
Why not? What’s barry going to do, stop more drilling and kill more jobs before the election?
Maybe Jindal should say, “Thanks, but no thanks, we can’t afford more of your personal attention.”
Good grief, that reads like a personal profile of BamBam. Scary.
"No changes to our schedule as of now," Obama campaign traveling press secretary Jen Psaki told POLITICO.
While the statement has weasel room, it clearly shows Carney to be a liar.
That being said, I have to say that, personally, I have never seen a nominee, after giving a very Presidential acceptance speech, come out of the gates in less than a day and without question out-President the current one. Seriously, this has to be a record and the proof is so blatant that Dems and supporters are reduced to, "both are doing it for politics only" or "Jindal didn't invite Obama" or "let's just presume both care."
On the other hand I can believe that O and Co. were planning Monday all along so as to tie his "heroism" with the beginning of their convention. Maybe more devastation by then from flood waters for more emotional photo-ops. That's not a leader - that's a psychopath.
What has happened down here is the wind have changed
Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline
The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people got lost in the flood
Some people got away alright
The river have busted through cleard down to Plaquemines
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangelne
They’re tyrin’ to wash us away
They’re tryin’ to wash us away
They’re tryin’ to wash us away
They’re tryin’ to wash us away
President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand
The President say, “Little fat man isn’t it a shame what the river has
To this poor crackers land.”
God you liberals are insane. Why not just say you are a communist and be done. Plus why do you follow Obama and have a blank slate on you page? Either have zero accomplishments or are embarrassed about yourself.
Look, my shirt gots buttons and I can tie my own shoes too! Watch me, watch me!
obastard is pitiful but I hate him anyway.
When his term is over his mother will be washing his mouth out with soap for a year for all the lies he’s told......
Call this independent conservative any name you want; it’s what children do. As an adult I have come to a mature decision: every time I see a post by you and your defeatist ilk I’m just gonna scroll on by. You add NOTHING of value and your comments should be treated as such.
Disgusting ain’t it?
What we need to find is...no joke....the chair Barry used to use at the Illinois legislature. It is apparently enshrined at some museum in Springfield....I may have to go on a mission! PHOTO-OP!!!!
Anyone check to see if Obama has stopped the rise of the oceans, yet?
