Carney: 'Nobody spoke to the president' while issuing statement about Obama's uncle
The Daily Caller ^ | 12/5/13 | Neil Munro

Posted on 12/05/2013 10:44:01 PM PST by Nachum

White House press secretary Jay Carney admitted today that President Barack Obama’s 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 president’s [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 Obama’s 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.

“”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.

Again.

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?

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?

Why should they. The default operating instruction is "Lie."

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.

And, of course, the prez never thought it important to correct the convenient error.

You must recognize the Obama-Media paradigm... Democrats get as many “ do-overs” as they need (media-mulligans) to get to a version of the story that can't be further disputed while painting the political figure in question (i.e., Obama) in the best possible light.

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?

His uncle testified under oath and apparently it was corroborated by a women who was his landlord at the time that 'O' did in fact live with his uncle for a few weeks back in the 80's. The new narrative out of the WH is simply a CYA tactic.
And Bill Ayers was just a guy in the neighborhood. Uh-huh sure he was ...

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.

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)

Good thing Obama reads the news paper so he can stay informed what his Administration has done and is doing.

...as well as learning of things he's done or said in the past.
