George Will: Jay Carney's 'Usefulness to This Administration is Diminishing Rapidly'
Newsbusters via Drudge ^ | 12, 2013 | 15:56 | By Noel Sheppard

Posted on 05/13/2013 8:46:46 AM PDT by F15Eagle

White House press secretary Jay Carney had a tough week last week concluding with an absolutely deplorable press conference wherein he continued to spin totally unbelievable yarns about the administration's talking points regarding Benghazi.

This led George Will to say on ABC's This Week Sunday that Carney's "usefulness to this administration is diminishing rapidly" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

When you’re up to your ass in alligators it’s hard to remember the mission is to drain the swamp

Then there is Baghdad Bob. As I recall, he continued his balderdash while our troops were actually rolling into Baghdad.

Normally I’m not in favor of shooting the messenger but in Carney’s case I can make an exception.

Say what?

His ability and willingness to deflect, obscure, and when necessary, provide bald-faced lies to cover for the most vile, corrupt, and incompetent administration in U.S. history IS his primary USE. George Will is an a$$ clown of biblical proportion.

George is acting very sophomoric in this article.

Carney (an ex carnival roustabout and pimp for the fat lady) fits in with Obama’s collection of the weird and unusual helpers.

I see three possibilities for Jay Carney:

1. Resign out of shame and swear not to talk to the media or the Republicans in Congress.

2. Defect and ask some conservative group for protection while he spills his story.

3. Arkancide with a Chicago flavor.

Hopefully he takes option number two, because option one would most likely end with option three.

Terrorist attack or You Tube movie review?

That was an excellent sound bite!

I wonder if Carney's friends and family have a shred of respect left for him. At least Baghdad Bob was funny. Carney is one very sad and pathetic excuse for a man.

Jay Carney's best contribution as the WH mouthpiece would be to commit sepuku (ritual suicide) at a scheduled news conference.

The Jay Carney and Baghdad Bob comparison would be spot-on except for one thing: Most of us actually found Baghdad Bob to be entertaining.

This may seem strange...but I kinda feel sorry for him. He’s doing his job. He doesn’t set policy. He doesn’t make decisions. He *does* have to answer for them though. Look at the position he’s been put in, one the one hand you could respect his loyalty to Obama, on the other - how much of your soul are you willing to give? ...he must know, that everybody else knows he’s lying.

Carney is only doing his job, lying for the lying Liar in the White House.
His credibility is gone , but it isn’t really his fault. He has no integrity, honesty, or credibility so they will fire him and hire another liar and ruin his good name.

Some would say he is used up. He has never made up any of these lies on his own, he just repeats what he is told to repeat.

What should be done is to keep Carney and get rid of Obama.

I’ve done some consulting work for an NFL franchise. I was working with their marketing team and my business contact was a former player. During the course of my engagement, I asked him about something the team had said in a press conference. In a joking and round about way, he told me: “A press conference? That’s the last place you’re ever going to hear the truth.” It’s an interesting concept - the media is used as wiling dupes to process the bull squeeze.
