WH's Jay Carney: Stimulus "Goals Have Been Met" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | February 17, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 02/17/2011 10:41:54 AM PST by i88schwartz

White House press secretary Jay Carney says the Recovery Act added several million jobs and lowered the unemployment rate. According to Carney, the "goals" of the stimulus package "have been met."

A reporter asked Carney why unemployment is at 9% and not 7%, the percentage projected if the stimulus worked. Carney dismissed the question: "We've said repeatedly that we don't want to relitigate the battles of the past," Carney told the reporter.

I guess they think that no one will notice that unemployment has not went down? How about the biggest whopper of all about how they have created more jobs than Bush did?HMM unemployment at 5% unemployment at over 9% just which one created jobs? DUH

Carney is telling the truth. The socialists goal has been met by expanding the size of government even further beyond their Constitutional boundaries.

we don't want to relitigate the battles of the past

Nope. Let's just declare victory and move on to the next topic. Seriously, if you don't want to relitigate battles of the past, then why did you bring it up? Maybe we should just focus on the present, like unemployment still over 9%.

Translation: Gibbs told Carney that nothing the regime has done so far is defensible, so just make it up as you go. What do you want from Bidens communications director? He really has done a bang up job at that, Eh?

Too many in America are "STILL BUYING" Barry Hussein Soetoro's LIES. Check out the Daily approval polls and you will be sick. He is on the way to term number two - Repubs quaking in their boots afraid of a Fed Gov shutdown.

THIS IS THE GOP'S CHANCE - LET BARRY SHUT IT DOWN. DO NOT COMPROMISE - REMEMBER WHO BROUGHT YOU TO THE DANCE AND WHAT INSTRUCTIONS WE GAVE YOU.

Does the “we don’t want to relitigate the battles of the past” line mean the regime will never answer questions about anything it does, since once it’s done, it’s in the past? Oh, pretty clever there, Carney. They’ve become incredibly emboldened in their lies and evasions.

I hope President Bush got as good of a chuckle from this mumbo jumbo as I did.

What the Dots Represent
The dots represent the Recovery projects that have yet to be started. Once recipients receive their awards, they are required to report on the status, even if the projects have not yet been started.

Bush created more jobs every month of his administration than Obama has by comparison.

Obama needs to go now.

Vote the son of a bitch out of office in 2012 and watch the jobs come back big time.

In regards to “repeal” the Affordable Care Act

Obama - November 2010

“Well, I know that there’s some Republican candidates who won last night who feel very strongly about it. I’m sure that this will be an issue that comes up in discussions with the Republican leadership. As I said before, though, I think we’d be misreading the election if we thought that the American people want to see us for the next two years re-litigate arguments that we had over the last two years.”

Credit where credit might be due.

Working the beat for TIME, he was practically the only reporter with the wherewithal to come visit a FRee Republic Rally on the Capitol grounds in 1999. since I don't read Time I don't know what he wrote. He worked the crowd and spoke with many of us with genuine interest.

Unfortunately I can't remember the FReeper's name

Jay Carney comes across as an elitist arrogant asshole just like his boss.
