New WH spokesman, Josh Earnest -- same flippant attitude: ‘Never heard of a computer crash before?’
BizPac Review ^ | 06/18/2014 | Cheryl Carpenter Klimek

Despite growing outrage over the mysterious disappearance of former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner’s emails, the new White House press secretary sees nothing wrong with the government’s inadequate explanation.

“I think it’s entirely reasonable. And it’s fact,” incoming spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One on Monday, according to CNN.

“You’ve never heard of a computer crashing before?”

The IRS admits that it can’t find two years’ of emails requested during the time tea party activists claim they were targeted.

Even CNN anchor John King found the explanation unbelievable.

“Do you believe in the Easter Bunny?” he asked viewers. “Do you believe in Santa Claus? Do you believe that Lois Lerner’s emails suddenly went ‘poof’?”

Watch King’s disbelief here via CNN:

They are giving us all the finger, daring the Republicans to take any meaningful action in response.

Yes, I’ve heard of a computer crash. I’ve also heard of blatant obstruction of justice and willful destruction of evidence.

Never heard of “contempt of court” before?

What would the democrats do if the roles were reversed?

Figure that out and DO IT!

Just a little taste of ‘sharia’ for the masses

Maybe the UNHRC had it right. Iran heading, instead of the US under its regime suppressing the rights of its own, that rights panel some time back. Can Islam be depoliticized , can DC be reined in?

Tar and feathers is much too good for many.. Jmho. ;-l

I thought Bob Gates was bad... until Jay Carney came along.

I despise Josh Earnest already, and I don’t even know what he looks like.

So what? Until someone is arrested, who cares? Without arrests, it is business as usual with the WDC criminal set.

The proper response to “You’ve never heard of a computer crashing before?” is simply “Yes. Are you so incompetent that you’ve never heard of a backup?”

Never heard of backups before?

Never heard of document retention laws before?

Never heard of deliberate destruction of evidence charges before?

Lois Lerner could have set her PC on fire, shot holes through it with a .50 cal machine gun, dropped it into the Marianas Trench and...

she could still go to any other PC on the IRS’s network and access all her email.

This is an Obama Administration ‘FU’ to the people of this country and to Congress.

There is no way emails are gone from all drives and archives unless it was deliberate.

It's code. Full Windsor has two sides, Half-Windsor has one.

Allegiance to the "One" - get it?

Actually that’s not even a half-Windsor... It’s more a slack half-assed semi-full... So he’s pledging allegiance to THAT...

LOL, cracked myself up...

And this time the lamestream media doesn't give a crap.

Actually, that isn't entirely true. This time much of the lamestream media is interested in helping to cover it up.

Joshie, in fact I have experienced a complete desktop computer crash.
In my case, a computer tech was able to retrieve every bit of information to transfer to a new tower, directly from the old computer.
I was able to do this despite the fact that I had not subscribed to an optional back-up service, unlike the mandatory computer back-up government agencies are legally required to maintain.
But then, I didn't have any criminality to hide.
