Skip to comments.Carney: GOP trying to change the subject with 'redistribution' tape
Posted on 09/19/2012 11:37:27 AM PDT by ColdOne
The White House suggested that an old tape of President Obama endorsing 'redistribution' is an attempt by Mitt Romney's campaign to change the subject.
"I would say that all of us who follow politics and policy, whether we're on this side or your side of the podium have seen circumstances like this were a campaign is having a a very bad day or a very bad week," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Wednesday.
"In circumstances like that, there are efforts made, sometimes desperate efforts to change the subject," he said.

Bullstalin. The tape is more evidence that Barack Obama has always believed in Marxist redistribution of wealth. Something his handlers have long denied.
Change the subject from what? Our ambassador dying? Yes, lets change the subject to that.
Just like Obama using the Romney tape to take the media OFF of the Middle East PR disaster.
Yes, no kidding. Trying to change the subject back to “THE PRESIDENT IS A SOCIALIST”. Just a minor detail....
Guy is a riot!
Thank you, Mr. President!
At last! At last! I'm in my 70s and overweight.. but at last! I get a chance!
I always wanted to play for the Los Angeles Lakers! Now I can do it. I can get a share of those tens-of-millions-of-dollar salaries and be a hero for the fans..
it's such a blessing thank you, Mr. President, thank you for taking time out of your day! Oooooooooh, gracious God, thank you so much!"
you see, it’s ok when they do it, but use their tactics and they get their panties in a knot.
what a bunch of wussies.
No, the subject hasn’t been changed. Just different perspectives on the same subject. Of course the media will spin it differently.
Where is Captain Obvious when we need him?
lets change it to how the attack occured, how he went to Vegas, how the media ignored all of these questions, , I know lets mention you sending out Rice and her lying about the attacks.
Nah this admin, the DOJ all working what media matters which in turn tells the media what to mention and how to spin all of this
If it’s that, Press Sec. Sock Puppet, then ignore it while it is run in 100000 ads.
I’m sure it wont mean anything, right?
Lets change the subject back to something important like Obummers foreign policy disaster and the murder of our diplomat team. We can also include Obummer ignoring the warning he received about the attack.
It is called counter attack you obama moron.
Since you don't want to talk about your boss being a SOCIALIST, what SHOULD we talk about Mr. Chief Propaganda Minister Carney? 0bama's naive foreign policy? his record on the economy?
... or maybe you'd like to talk about how his golf and bball games have improved over the last four years, or what luxury vacation he is planning next?
Andrea Mitchell: NBC Hasn’t “Authenticated” Obama Redistribution Clip, Won’t Air
“But the basic issue is they’re accusing President Obama, as John Sununu said to be yesterday, of class warfare. That is trying to change the subject,” Mitchell added.
Alinskyites hate it when you use their own tactics against them.
Might as well give up right now
There's just no way you'll get anything past this boy.
As opposed to changing the subject of Obama’s bounce being over and Middle East in flames.
Nice try, lib media.
See Update - MSNBC has announced they have authenticated the tape.
Awwww. . . Don't mention it. Actually, mention it again and again, will you?
Thanks for taking the bait, and letting us live rent-free in your press conference! And thanks especially for mentioning 0bummer alongside his favorite policy"redistribution," which is so popular amongst Americans who know how to personally cast a ballot.
Saw that. My point is how they are all working from the same playbook, down to the exact words. Not all dems but all dems and their media lapdogs.
No, Romney’s subject change is from the 47% video—which the Obama campaign had released to change the subject from the deadly meltdown of his entire foreign policy.
I can’t wait to see these corrupt jerks out of a job.
The irony of his own comments were lost in changing the subject.
Carney....you Dolt! How is that changing the subject...the mere fact that 47% or whatever it is...are not paying taxes....means that somebody else is paying.....Re-distribution....they are taking money from people in the form of higher taxes to pay for all the free stuff the
47%ers are getting. I swear everyday these people remain in power, my IQ goes up a point!
Obama Sock Puppet Stands Firm
White House Press Secretary Jay "Squeaky" Carney
The irony is strong with this one.
“”In circumstances like that, there are efforts made, sometimes desperate efforts to change the subject,” he said.”
Funny, that’s exactly what Andrea Mitchell said. Wonder where she got her talking points.
Just like Andrea Mitchell, Carney must have looked up the definition of “redistribution of wealth = socialism/communism
RE_ _ _TRIBUTION. Let’s call it what it is.
The 47% = Redistribution = Socialism = The Subject.
They are for increasing it. We are for decreasing it.
Ignore, ignore, ignore, and watch as America's citizens go from independence to dependence under a "we can't wait" Executive who defies the Constitution's limitations on his power.
Hey Carney ... is that like how the Dems are trying to change the subject by harping on the 47% thing? Yeah.
His supporters deny it, too. They hate Joe the Plumber for being there for obama to talk to. If Joe had run inside the house obama couldn’t have told him what he wanted to do. sarc?
Then the media (and unelected Democrats working in state offices) set out to smear "Joe" for making Obama look bad.
The assertion that Barack Obama is a socialist became a hallmark of the 2008 presidential campaign. His opponent, John McCain, used Obamas own extemporaneous words to an Ohio plumber as Exhibit A: When you spread the wealth around, Obama had said, its good for everybody. That, McCain insisted, sounded a lot like socialism, as did Obamas proposals to raise taxes on the wealthy and high earners for the explicit purpose of taking better care of the lower and middle classes with that redistributed money.LINK
