CBS News' Bill Plante to White House press secretary Jay Carney on the matter of President Obama's attack on the Supreme Court: "You're standing up there, twisting yourself in knots because he made a mistake and you can't admit it."

Plante repeated himself after Carney accused him of righteous indignation.

calling the president's remarks a "mistake" is like calling physician-assisted suicide "malpractice".

It is euphemistic in the extreme.

In a perfect world, Carney and his brood would end up like the Goebbels family.

Lying for a living, especially when your boss is a skinny communist kenyan faggot, is a thankless task.

Sounds like Plante will be taking a one way stroll in Ft. Marcy Park.

Doesn’t he look and sound like the bratty little twerp who sat in front of each class with his hand up reminding the teacher about collecting homework?

There’s another guy I’d like to see get a pie in his little cocky face.

Bill Plante is going to find himself covering the next press conference from the other side of the Potomac as retribution for that remark!

My question for the next Carney question session:
So you come in here day after day and flack for Obama. Isn't there anything he has done that has made you even feel the slightest bit uneasy?

Watch the video...notice how uncomfortable the reporters around him act when he gets argumentative with the party line?

Then when Carney starts scolding they start squealing and giggling.

DC id nothing but pussies, in every single job and in every single party. Completely lacking in the sense of the reality of what goes on out side of that cesspool.

You must give credit where credit is due. Obama is a genius at picking as.....s for spokespersons, and members of his cabinet. What a sad bunch. The freedom to vote is not free folks. Don’t forget it.

Carney always looks like he needs a laxative.

And that isn’t in shorthand.

Carney Jay is a freaking embarrassment the the Country.

We have Carney running the Government = America is so screwed.

The entire Regime looks like one big parade of Carney operators.

Baghdad Bob had about as much reliability.

“...when your boss is a skinny communist kenyan faggot, is a thankless task. “

Not being ultra critical BUT, I believe a better sentence structure would be, “your boss is a skinny kenyan communist faggot,”

Ya, that’s the ticket!

Sideshow’s job is on the line. Admitting that 0bungles made a mistake would get him a first class ticket to the front of the bus. And not on board it.

Random act of journalism, too bad it won’t make the evening news on TV. It will only be on the RCP website.

Carney is a paid apologist for an evil would- be dictator. He’s not bright enough to make up good excuses for the usurper, and his efforts to justify 0bama’s actions make him the lowest form of scum.

This particular Carney performance reminded me of the Clinton years...this kind of thing went on every day.

I wouldn't be surprised if Madame Beast herself schooled Carney on what to say this morning.

Ed Henry from Fox had a good line too - Henry asked some question and Carney shot “Here we go again” - to which Henry shot back “Here we go again with the facts” - and got quite a few chuckles from other reporters.....

Are we seeing the beginnings of a mutiny on a rotting Bounty? Let's hope so. Let's hope that the left's reporters wake up to the reality that this administration is not what they dreamed about and thought, before it's too late.

A long time ago in a place far away, CBS and the AP were the gold standards for news reporting. I’m old enough to remember.

It’d be like trying to pop just part of a balloon.

In 0bama’s mind, I’m sure, he never makes mistakes.
He’s been surrounded by “supportive” people all his life, and is the penultimate narcissist.
