Carney Compares Questions about Scandals to Birth-Cerificate Inquiries

By Andrew Johnson May 21, 2013 2:49 PM

Jay Carney tried to move past questions about the series of scandals surrounding the Obama administration by comparing them to questions about the president’s birth certificate at today’s press conference. Major Garrett asked Carney if the White House thought Republican inquiries were “legitimate” on the issues of Benghazi, the IRS, the Department of Justice targeting reporters, and the Department of Health and Human Service’s efforts to raise funds from private companies for promoting the health-care law.

“We could go down the list of questions — we could say, ‘What about the president’s birth certificate? Was that legitimate?’” Carney responded.

The IRS scandal is admitted by the IRS to be valid.

So if IRS=Birth-Certificate........

Good. Let him use the birth certificate analogy as much as possible because maybe, it will cause some to start looking into it, as well. They're lying liars and at this point, everyone should consider everything they've ever said to be a lie.

Well, yes, it was legitimate.

Somehow I don’tthink this time around people are going to be intimidated by being labeled a ‘birther’ or ‘truther’ or anything else.

Silence is not an option!

Exactly. Benghazi, IRS, Fast & Furious.... are all as valid and serious issues as the birth certificate forgery. They are all made out of the same cloth: a foreign enemy combatant has taken over our government through the use of threats, and has been dismantling everything this country is.

This is one of the few times Jay Carney told us the truth. These stories are just like the eligibility issue. Now the public needs to absorb what that means.

Yep.

There is/are reason(s) why somebody doesn’t submit a $10 document to a single federal court and get a precedent ruling, invalidating all future cases as already determined with documentation, but spends hundreds of thousands of $$$$$$$ fighting it.

Now what that/those reason(s) is/are, I don’t know for sure.

But there is/are reason(s). You can bank on it.

Yes.

Yes, they are.

They are a self-parody right now and they don’t even realize it.

To try this ridiculous angle shows how desperate and out-of-ideas they are.

Beware the cornered ‘rat - they’re looking for anything now, to distract.

Good. Perhaps the legacy media SHOULD begin forecefully inquiring about forgery of the LFBC, forgery of the Selective Service registration form and about the fraudulent use of multiple SSNs.

Dismissivity is a liberal’s primary tool. When they try to trivialize something and dismiss it then you know they are hurt by it and are lying. Well, a liberal moving his lips means he’s lying.

Good. Let’s talk about the birth certificate now that we have forensic evidence by professional law enforcement authorities.

And BTW, try to imagine being Barack Obama. At 35 years old, you’ve just written a biography that’s been published by Times Books.

The publisher sends you some preliminary copies, hot off the press. You’re Barack Obama — so do you just throw the copies in a corner and never even look at them? Or do you pick one up, lovingly handle it, smell it, flip through the pages, think about how great you are, look lovingly at your cover jacket picture, and read your bio (on the back or dust jacket flap) over and over and over?

And as you read your bio over and over and over, do you call your publisher and say: “Oops, it says I was born in Kenya, but I was really born in Hawaii?” And in all the subsequent editions, do you let the erroneous birth location go unchanged?

I think this is a great time to open the whole birther thing now, although, I don’t think Congress should open it. But Carney opened the door. Perhaps one of the reporters can ask him about this.

Did no one bother to tell Carney that the BCs Obama released on the internet were frauds? Someone should hurry and tell Carney that Obama’s SS card is fraudulent too. For that matter, Carney best not encourage people to look too deeply into Obama’s degree from Columbia. That boy could be in for some severe disappointments. But no matter Jay, your boss is a leftist black, and thus untouchable. Relax!

Carney hit a bullseye inadvertently. The birth certificate scandal is every bit as big as Benghazi, IRS, AP. In fact, it’s bigger, because if it had been properly investigated, we could have spared America the Obama administration.

Couldn't agree with you more, SuzyQueIN!

BTW, inadvertently is the only way Carney will ever hit a bullseye, because he never shoots straight.

They’re desperate. You can bet they rehearse every talking point Jay Carney goes out there with.

For him to use this, they wanted him to use this.

That means they’re out of ideas.

It is panic and desperation time.

Next, they’ll associate fake Moon landings and Bigfoot.
