Agreed. Wonder what would happen if everyone started calling the chaos a constitutional crisis. Need to warm up the popcorn machine... 45 mins till more drama.

I found a link to FR on alt.impeach-clinton, lurked a few days here, signed up, and never went back.

We many end up at the same DHS re-education camp.

Before the press briefing:

“No, no, I can’t make go out there again, not after last week! CIA’s already mad at me on Benghazi – I swear someone’s been in my house and I’m being tailed. And now the IRS… They’re not going to buy the “lower level,” “we made some errors in judgment,” pap, by the way. Who DOES write these message points? They’re awfully lame. Maybe the press has a point...”

“Jay, Jay, just calm down. You must go out there. It’s your duty. Remember the Moscow bureau? Deflect, deny; distract; deny. Deny, deny, deny. Here, take some Tums – you look a little green around the gills. They’ll swarm off to the next distraction soon enough. The CIA guy in the wig in Russia? We set that up as a temporary start.”

“But it’s CIA again and I’m really scared of those guys. And this whole AP thing… You don’t understand press people, but I know – they’re crazy when they get mad. The AP story has them smelling blood. They take it personally. I don’t think these points about DOJ acting in the name of national security are going to fly very well.”

“Now, now. Just go out there. It won’t last long. And, oh, uh, Jay…”

“Yes?”

“Try not to hem and haw like you did on Benghazi, would you? People were talking. Makes us look bad.”

Cheney: President Obama Involved In Ongoing Benghazi Cover-Up

DICK CHENEY:

“They tried to cover it up by constructing a false story, claiming there was confusion about what happened in the Benghazi compound....

.... There was no confusion. It was obvious as soon as we got Ambassadors Stevens on the phone that night and he said, quote, ‘we are under attack.’.

The cover-up included several officials up to and including President Obama, and the cover-up is still ongoing.” (Hannity, May 13, 2013)

Barely been hanging on with bad news and there’s a manhunt right near our church( Honeydew near Petrolia). So looks like ‘bamalama is in dip dodo and not enough lies can get this “Luciferan Alinsky” snake out of it this time. So what’s gonna be the spin now?

What’s also telling is the Kenyan’s schedule. No fluff events today and a lot of blank time. The WH is in crisis mode.

I appreciate the Freepers who work to bring this new to the forum. That being said, I ask myself, “why bother tuning into a press briefing?”

We all know what is going to be said,,everyone else is to blame, Dear leader has promised to get to the bottom of it,,yadda yadda,, Republican obstructionism, sequester, tsunami, Bush’s fault, previous administration, Rush’s fault,,,etc and so on

Can you imagine just how much this schmuck detests the thought of waking up one more day to go in and do this crap, again?

I actually think Carney is enough of a REgressive (not Progressive) to believe he is doing a good deed for the country. I suspect he is very proud of his lying skill set.

You gotta go give that press briefing.
