Reporter Presses Carney: How Can You Be Sure No One in WH Was Involved in IRS Scandal?
Fox ^ | 5/14/13 | Fox

Posted on 05/14/2013 1:51:30 PM PDT by Nachum

In a fiery exchange during Tuesday’s White House press briefing, one reporter pointedly asked Press Secretary Jay Carney how he could be “categorically certain” that no one from the White House was involved in the IRS targeting conservative groups.Carney stumbled when asked whether he was basing his claims on assumptions. “I can tell you that … I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it.”

If these acts were not directed, that means they were systemic. And if so, everyone needs to be removed, top to bottom.

Jay’s getting frustrated with the fact that the media’s no longer acting like a lapdog.

You can’t believe anything this bunch says. We found out last week that they denied ordering the officer in charge in Tripoli to stand down because they did not consider telling him he had no authority to go to Benghazi to be a stand down order. This bunch is worse than Bill “depends of the meaning of is” Clinton.

P.S. - how can anyone be sure Harry Reid didn’t get his rumor (about Romney not paying his taxes) from one of his ‘friends’ at the IRS?

“I can tell you that … I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it.”

Got to love the beginning of that statement, "“I can tell you that …", doesn't really mean it's true, but I can tell you that, LOLOL.

Why not just state " I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it." without a qualifier?

Maybe I'm too cynical, but it sure sounds like he left himself a legalese/weaselese out.

I’m betting they will appoint Bill Clinton.

Exactly, because if lower level employees can do this without their superiors even knowing then they have way too much power.

I wonder what the chances are that a few maverick nobodies did this? I wonder what the odds would be in Vegas.

"I am not aware of anyone here knowing about it."

"Like Bammy, I know NOTHING."

Totally ignorant.

Poindexter looks and sounds woefully ill-equipped to deal with a non-compliant press.

Horsefeathers! Carney and these a$$holes met before the press conference to lay out this nonsensical stir “for the masses.” Now the LIVs can go back to their fornicating, beer and TV “satisfied” that the press is on the job for them.

The weasel words are even worse than you have so aptly stated. He said "I WAS not aware..." which might mean that he is aware now...even if he's not admitting it.

Those of us who were around during the Clinton administration got very good at spotting the weasel words.

No. Not this time.

This is the same reporter who gave him hell last time. Actually, they all did.

The fact is, the wheels are coming off and the press is biting back. Did you see the last press conference? IT WAS A DISASTER for the Obama team.

“The fact is, the wheels are coming off and the press is biting back. Did you see the last press conference? IT WAS A DISASTER for the Obama team.”

I truly hope you are right. But the point I made is being shared by Rush in his latest posting from his show, so I guess only time will tell who is correct.
With the press, however, they never want to be seen as having backed a looser, so when ( and if) Obama really gets the pox, they will pile on while they proclaim Hitlary to be the next Savior of our country. Like Republicans, reporters are like vultures, in that they don’t actually want to have to kill anything to eat. They will hang around to see if Obama dies, then start feeding on his remains.

You know, I really doubt that Carney would’ve set anything up for the simple reason that for the past four + years he’s been safe in the assumption that he didn’t need to coordinate with the press.

Now the sharks in the media smell blood in the water and the White Hut (via Holder) crossed a collective line with them when they went after the sources for the AP.

That is just too Soviet even for the communists in the media.

I think what is making people wonder is the “deep background” press briefing or whatever they called it the other day that was by invitation only to “trusted reporters” before the regular press briefing. Many including me want to know exactly who was there and what took place.

The Repubs need to request anything in writing where someone asked the IRS to check out someone else.

You will find David David Plouffe hand-prints all over the place.

Want to have some fun?

Do a YouTube search for Jay Carney press briefings from a scant few weeks ago, and compare “smug, cocky Jay” to “pathetic, sweating, gasping, stuttering, tap-dancing Jay” of today.

What a waste of an adulthood. A soulless little lying worm.
