It is only going to get worse for Carney as this story unravels the preceeding stories too. Carney should resign immediately before he is indicted.

Carney will not finish the month at the rate these scandals are popping!!

Q: When a "public servant" leaves the employment of the Fed Gov, does Congress had the power to subpoena them as private citizens??

But that’s the problem with this libtard model—you resign, you get blamed. Why I say he’s in a pickle!

His resignation would add to the controversy. I've been pondering what must be an intricate network of leverage between the politicians and bureaucrats involved. At some point, Obama is going to have to sacrifice some lambs on this and several other scandals ongoing. Hillary? Carney? Gen Patreus?

Here's the thing. The scapegoats will either:

1. Have to be complicit in the rouge to play the fall guy/girl in hopes of future accolades, power, prestige and/or wealth.

2. Be powerless to stop it.

I would expect that many of the folks closest to the President "know things" that balance any leverage. Hillary would not allow herself to be the scapegoat and would turn on Obama as America's Patriot. It could actually help her if she takes down Obama. But you have to wonder, what must Obama have over so many of these other people that they won't protect their own careers/lives/reputation? Patreus had an affair and was booted.

I suspect the pressure is not high enough yet. Once the press starts going after the President on these things. He'll start assigning blame. Then the truth should start coming out.

With democrats the pressure doesn't usually get high enough because the media controls the narrative (Sandy Burglar for Bill Clinton?). Then Republicans become cowards.

I would like to see a special investigation committee assembled in the house with the most aggressive young Tea Party advocates.

I keep expecting him to at some point just throw up his hands in frustration and go running and screaming from the room.

Carney is perhaps the most talented spin artist I have ever seen in public life. These are merely the consequences of defending the indefensible.

I love watching that little weasel squirm. I only wish Gibbs was up there also so he could feel the love too. :-)

Actually it’ll get lots better for Carney. They’re dusting off a special seat at MSNBC for him as we speak.
