Skip to comments.Carney: 'Nobody spoke to the president' while issuing statement about Obama's uncle
Posted on 12/05/2013 10:44:01 PM PST by Nachum
White House press secretary Jay Carney admitted today that President Barack Obamas aides deceived the public when they said the president had never met his illegal immigrant uncle in Boston.
Thank you for the question, Carney told Fox News Ed Henry, before admitting that staffers misled journalists at the Boston Globe who asked in 2010 if Obama had ever met his uncle, the illegal immigrant.
Back when this arose, [White House staff] looked at the record, including the presidents [autobiographical] book, and there was no evidence that they had met and that was what was conveyed to the public, Carney said.
However, he quickly added, nobody spoke to the president.
Carney said he corrected the error after Obamas Kenyan uncle claimed this week during an immigration hearing that the president had stayed with him in Cambridge, Mass.
I thought it was the right thing to do to go ask him and the president said that he, in fact, had met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school, Carney said.
The president has not seen Omar Obama in 20 years and has not spoken with him in roughly 10 years, he added.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“”Nobody” seems to talk to the president all the time.”
That’s the only reason he isn’t in prison or executed for treason.
“staffers misled journalists at the Boston Globe”
Call it what is was - a bald-faced lie right to your face.
“The president found out he lived with Uncle Omar when he read about it in the papers, just like everybody else.”
It is sad that the president of the United States would abandon a close family member in such a way as this one has.
When was the last time our president has spoken to that other illegal alien family member of his, Aunt Zetuni I wonder.
How many other Illegal Kenyan family members scattered across the USA has our president abandoned?
Another Lie. Period. End of Story.
Come on people, at least have all parties concerned using the same lies. Get with the program!
So some little staffer makes a mistake about the “One”. Let us pretend that is true. If so the Prez allowed the lie to stand. He never corrected the mis-statement. To me that is still lying.
Recall the story of Odysseus in the cave of the cyclops Polyphemus. Odysses told Polyphemus that his name was ‘Noman.’ When Odysses and his men blinded Polyphemus, the cyclops was yelling ‘Noman blinded me!’ So his cyclops relatives shrugged it off, thinking he was OK.
As usual, ‘Noman’ told (here, asked) Obama nuthin, so we (the WH) are being upfront admitting *they* (those underlings, again) deceived the press/public, but it was unintentional, so there it is: Noman is at fault, once again.
See how clever that is?
Besides the supposed wife and two kids does this guy have any LEGAL relatives living in the USA that we know of?
I have hardly heard of a single person step forward from this guys past let alone a family member...
Why should they. The default operating instruction is "Lie."
Article, and # 11 , # 12...
Can’t blame Obama - when your whole life is built on lies, it can be hard to keep them all straight.
Aunt Zetuni and Uncle Omar should be deported. With that being said, there were all the stories about Zetuni being in public housing, no food, No money, no transportation. Nice nephew you got there, Zetuni!
Another lie of omission. Obama and his aides lied.
Documents have just been discovered showing that obama has not talked to anyone in his administration or staff since his first inauguration.
And, of course, the prez never thought it important to correct the convenient error.
In particular the Bitch from Kansas. Who was in charge of His Legacy. One meeting. LOL!
He USED his uncle in order to LIVE with and then NEVER spoke to him again. I can believe that because Trayvon’s daddy is a USER!!!
Ding, ding, ding - we have a winnah!!
I guess Barry doesn’t send Christmas cards to many relatives.
And when it was reported in the public media, the (p)resident saw no need to correct the error that originated from the White House! He would allow that misunderstanding to remain as part of the public’s understanding of his past?
I believe that; don’t you?
Muslims don’t send Christmas cards.
When in doubt.. make it up.
If you like your uncle,you can keep your uncle.
So when so we know WHEN Carney is speaking for the President? Guess we need that as a follow up on every question now.
Aides read his book and gave this answer. Clueless and stupid. BO lies about everything and he is slowly but surely going down the worm hole.
He didn’t even know he had an uncle until he heard it like us in the media.
Obama didn’t know that he had lived with Omar for awhile until he read about it in the newspaper like the rest of us.
Naturally. Obama didn’t know anything until he read it in the paper— just like us.
The sycophants Obama has working for him must be losing respect for him ... or they've decided he worth lying for - because otherwise they would be fools. (hint: they're fools)
So - they make up his lies for him to keep all responsibility away...
So there are records? I would like to have a look at the records Carney speaks of
I’m having a hard time figuring out what (if anything) these people tell the truth about.
...as well as learning of things he's done or said in the past.
So, why didn’t O correct the lie after it was told. The only prez who has no idea what his people are doing?
