    White House press secretary Jay Carney says he never lied to the press corps during his three and a half years as the top presidential spokesman. “Honestly, it's not because I’m a paragon of virtue, it’s because that would be a terrible way to do the job,” Carney told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. The press secretary admitted that he sometimes could not or did not want to answer questions posed by reporters. “What you do when you can’t say is you don’t,” Carney said. “You take the question or you explain what you can.” Carney will leave...
  • Jay Carney: Obama First Learned About VA Scandal in the Media

    President Barack Obama first learned of the scandal involving Department of Veterans Affairs hospital administrators concealing the true wait times vets faced in the press, according to a claim made by White House Press Sec. Jay Carney on Monday. While the president may have not been aware of the falsified wait lists, however, reports indicate that his administration was informed of excessive wait times at the VA as early as 2008. Obama even campaigned on the issue of VA waiting lists in 2007. “When was the president first made aware of these problems?” CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked. “These fraudulent

    Lot o’ strategizin’ happening today vis-a-vis the committee, and not just on the GOP side. Greg Sargent hears from a source on the Hill that Pelosi and company are trying to decide whether to boycott. A House Dem leadership aide points out that there is precedent for such a boycott. Back in 2005, House Dem leaders declined to participate in GOP hearings into what went wrong with the Bush administration’s response to the Katrina disaster, arguing that Republicans had set up the committee in a way that ensured it would not conduct a serious probe into what happened. The House...

    White House may not cooperate with Benghazi select panel By Justin Sink - 05/05/14 02:40 PM EDT The White House suggested Monday it may not cooperate with a new House select committee investigating the terror attack in Benghazi. Press secretary Jay Carney said that the White House has "always cooperated with legitimate oversight," but called the new probe a “highly partisan effort to politicize” the deadly attack. "If you look at even what some Republicans have said, it certainly casts doubt on the legitimacy of an effort that is so partisan in nature," Carney said. "I don't think there are...

    Carney Can’t Answer Why Supposed Non-Beghazi Email Was In Benghazi FOIA BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff May 1, 2014 2:52 pm White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dodged questions from Fox News’ Ed Henry regarding why the supposed non-Benghazi email was included in the emails the White House turned over to Judicial Watch. Henry asked Carney, “If the email was not about Benghazi, you said yesterday and you say again today, why did the White House turn it over to a conservative group seeking information about Benghazi?” Carney responded bluntly, instructing Henry to ask the State Department about how they...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared on Hugh Hewitt‘s radio show today to take on Jay Carney‘s spin of the latest Benghazi news. Tapper didn’t join Hewitt in calling Carney a liar, but remarked that he found Carney’s comments “dissembling, obfuscating, and often insulting.” Tapper said the White House’s version of events “does not sit with what I think happened.” He said the White House “leaned heavily into” a narrative that was helpful to them in an election year, but didn’t go as far as Hewitt, who suggested there is a “cover-up underway.” Hewitt said looking at all of Carney’s spinning,...

    In light of leaked emails regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry went head-to-head during Thursday’s press briefing. At one point, the press secretary took a jab at the reporter and his employer. After Henry questioned Carney over why the Ben Rhodes-authored emails focused on an anti-Islamic video rather than the terrorism aspect of the deadly siege, the press secretary remarked that the CIA-produced talking points at the time referred to protests at the Benghazi consulate as being inspired by similar demonstrations outside the American embassy in Cairo....

"The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi," Carney said. "They were about the general situation in the Muslim world." A set of documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request included an email from deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to...

    Judicial Watch’s President Tom Fitton hit back at Jay Carney over false statements made by the White House press secretary during his heated exchange with ABC’s Jon Karl regarding newly released emails about Benghazi. The emails were only released by the White House after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against them. Carney said that talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice to recite on talk shows following the Benghazi attack centered around protests in the Middle East, not specifically pertaining to Benghazi. “If you look at that document, that document that we’re talking about today was about the overall environment...

    The White House on Monday dismissed concerns by retiring Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who in a radio interview on Monday said he didn't think enough young, healthy consumers would purchase ObamaCare policies. Moran told WAMU that millennials "are less likely to sign up" for health insurance on the federal exchanges. "I think they feel more independent, I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations," Moran says. "But I don't think we're going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to financially." Healthcare experts have warned of a so-called...

    White House spokesman Jay Carney denied Friday that next year's midterm elections are the reason behind the administration's decision to postpone the 2014 opening date for 2015 enrollment in Obamacare -- from October 15 to November 15. Pushing back the start date, Carney said, will give insurers more time to get an idea of their new pool of customers before they set their 2015 rates. "What was already going to be a back-loaded process is going to be more back-loaded, and that's going to leave insurers a lot of data to sort through in a short period of time," he...
  • Carney on cancellations: Insurers “basically threw you off that plan,” you know, not ObamaCare

    10/29/2013 6:04:30 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 61 replies
    Gone is yesterday’s equivocating defense on the millions of distributed insurance cancellations currently shattering the great ObamaCare myth that was “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” After Valerie Jarrett‘s… er… “creative” contribution to the discussion last night, Carney was much more prepared for the question at today’s White House briefing with a more shrewdly crafted offensive strategy — because as we’re all well aware by now, unintentional concessions (don’t even think about apologies, not gonna’ happen) rarely last long in this administration before giving way to well-rehearsed, righteously indignant spin-doctoring.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday denied President Obama had misled the public when he said that consumers could keep their health insurance plans after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Carney said that consumers who "had a plan the day before the Affordable Care Act passed and signed into law" and who had not either dropped their coverage or "been thrown off the plan" by their insurance companies were "grandfathered in and can keep that plan." "If you've kept it, you can keep it forever, as long as your insurer offers it," Carney said.

    (CNSNews.com) – White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that the suggestion that Obamacare is reducing full-time employment is “belied by the facts.” After reports that businesses are shifting to employ more part-time workers in light of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Carney was asked if the White House is considering making changes to the requirement that employers with more than 50 employees must provide full-time workers with health insurance. A full-time worker is defined as a person working at least 30 hours per week.

I wondered why the president used that phrasing in claiming that it was outrageous?" Carney’s response: “Those from the IRS that have spoken about this obviously have much greater insight into what took place than we do. We have not seen the report. We have not independently collected information about what transpired. We need the independent inspector general's report to be released before we can...

    You keep using that word “if.” I do not think it means what you think it means.The White House revealed an interesting new threshold today for determining whether a wrongdoing has occurred. In the case of the IRS scandal, an admission and apology from the agency is not enough to say that its actions were “inappropriate,” according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. President Obama used the same oddly conditional construction Monday in his press conference. Instead of acknowledging improper behavior has already occurred, both Obama and Carney are in patented, Obama administration “wait for the investigation” mode, which...

Carney also referred reporters to an ongoing FBI investigation when asked about specifics on Libya. The problem? The FBI still isn't in Benghazi despite the administration saying repeatedly they are. Carney also tried to spin Obama's refusal to call the attack an act of terrorism and covered for the administration in its lie...
