Jay Carney is stepping down as White House Press Secretary over ´strain´ on his family life, he announced today. But the decision to leave the Obama administration came weeks ago, multiple sources including one in the West Wing told MailOnline. ´He first started talking about it in late April,´ the White House insider said Friday after the decision was made final. [Snip] ´To be honest, the move was more about how to deflect attention away from Eric Shinseki´s resignation, and less about giving Jay a thoughtful send-off,´ the White House official said. And a in insider close to Carney confirmed

This was not as sudden as some believe. This has been in the works for some time.

I don’t see why Shinsecki’s resignation would have been any big deal that needed to be deflected. Everyone saw it coming —

What a family life it must be when both husband and wife lie for a living.

The job description of White House Press Secretary is becoming blurred with borderline obstruction of justice.

Jay Carney is not up to the job so look for a ex Clinton Admin alum with connections to Lanny Davis get the job

Sure, easy to critique from the sidelines. You don't know what it's like to compete in that kind of upliarsmanship. The telling of tall tales is an art, I tell you.

None detected cap’n. Only a pathological liar could do that job for that amount of time and show no conscience.

Jay certainly earned his BS diploma. The bull did much straining for Carney.

Right. No deflection needed here but rather consolidation to get 2 planned resignations out of way together on a friday. That’s it.

Carney had better watch his back. He’s already caught in the spider’s web. If he decides to turn on Obama and spill the beans on what he has seen and heard in the White House, he will suffer the consequences.

I am shocked that Obama has not had more Press Secretaries considering he makes them lie so much. He has only had two. Bush and Clinton both had 5.

He's a Democrat, so that eliminates the development of any degree of moral guilt.
The option of "Quit or be indicted..." which, with our current DoJ, is also impossible, due to Holder's focus on Republican racism, to the exclusion of anything else.

I'm voting for his being bought by some Soros PAC.

Actually, it was Carney's ego that could no longer stand the incredulous and sarcastic looks of disdain, not to mention the snickering, of an increasing number of "journalists" in the audience.

For any non-sociopath, the tipping point had been reached long ago, weeks, if not days, after BHO first took office.

They are offspring of their father, the devil. He was a liar from the beginning, and they do the deeds of their father. They lie, because it is an essential part of their being. It is not just second nature to them, it is first nature.

Personally, I think that idiocy with the doctored photo from his house was the last straw.

It's one thing to accept a job as a professional @sshole. People in politics are used to it because they're in an "industry" where everyone is one @sshole working for another one. But when your job as a propaganda minister involves fabricating stories with your own family inside your own home ... that make even the @ssholes laugh in your face ... then it's time to get a life.

I met Carney In New Hampshire at a primary campaign appearance by W.I talked to him for about 5 minutes.Once he realized that I was serious about preferring W over algore he got disgusted and walked away.after our chat I had a powerful desire to go home and shower with a wire brush.A truly filthy,worthless punk.

Most of Fed officals are sociopaths. They don’t understand the world under their feet, and the people that occupy it in a sympathetic manner. They have no concept of human systems. That’s why the bully competent people out, they are alarmed by folks that actually understand the world.

When they reach critical mass, as they now have, their indifference to the Human condition becomes blatantly obvious.

America needs to target sociopaths as they do mass-murderers, as they share the same mental deviance.

Sociopaths understand two things: people they need to fear and people they need to crush.

I hadn’t known Carney was married to an ABC reporter. I suppose it would be awkward now that even ABC is questioning the honesty of Obama’s press secretary.
