    White House Dossier ^ | May 30, 2014, 1:57 pm | Keith Koffler
    President Obama announced today that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney will depart as press secretary. Obama, who interrupted the White House briefing as Carney was taking questions, said Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest will take his place. Carney seemed surprised by the interruption. Carney said he would leave soon, probably the second or third week of June. He will leave the White House but says he has not decided where he will go. “It’s been an amazing experience, just, so fulfilling,” Carney said, thanking the president and vice president.

    Since White House Spokesman Jay Carney and most of the media can’t seem to bring themselves to do it, I thought I’d write a transcript for an honest press briefing. It’s a satirical look at this daily dance, which you can tell by the fact that most of the questions are ones that should be asked but never are. BEGIN TRANSCRIPT MR. CARNEY: Hello, everyone. Thanks for being here. I have no announcements to make, so let’s go straight to questions. Karl, go first. Q: Jay, if the president is, as Chief of Staff McDonough said, “madder than hell,” why...

    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....

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has become increasingly animated and explicit in his pushback against some reporters, and at Monday’s daily briefing that trend continued with a lively exchange in which Carney openly mocked and mimicked ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. Along with Fox News’ Ed Henry, Karl has been on the receiving end of some vociferous pushback from Carney these past months, but that dynamic evolved into open contempt Monday, as Karl attempted to catch President Obama in an inconsistency regarding Healthcare.gov, the troubled portal for Obamacare. Several weeks ago, the President spoke about the...

    White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday said that President Obama couldn't "go back in time" as he was peppered with questions about whether the president regretted promising that Americans who liked their health insurance plans could keep them. "The president, as awesomely powerful as the office is, can't go back in time," Carney told reporters. Carney conceded that "there is no question that this rollout has not gone as smoothly as we had hoped," but sidestepped repeated questions about whether the president had over-promised. Instead, Carney said that the president's repeated guarantee that “if you like your healthcare...

    President Obama is “not concerned” about political fallout from the Affordable Care Act because he’s confident that the law will ultimately be politically beneficial to his allies, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday not long after the president finished meeting with a group of worried Senate Democrats. Obama is focused on delivering on the law’s promises and is “not concerned about the politics of that,” Carney told reporters traveling with the president to Dallas, where he will thank volunteers helping inform communities about the law before speaking at two fundraisers for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. But it's...

    Fresh questions about whether the White House deceived Americans with claims they could bypass the broken HealthCare.gov website by using the phone or mailing in an application provoked an exasperated response Monday from White House press secretary Jay Carney. "I give up," Carney told ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl, accusing the White House reporter of speaking "in tones of dramatic revelation" to inflate a story. The exchange centered around documents released by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday. Meeting notes from the administration "war room" handling the rollout of ObamaCare showed that consumers who called the ObamaCare...
  • 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. (Be sure to check out Sebelius’s planned...

    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.

Noah Rothman On Tuesday, the White House announced that it was tapping former acting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Jeff Zients to head the team overseeing the repairs on the Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange website. NPR Reporter Mara Liasson probed White House Press Sec. Jay Carney about whether he would be providing regular updates on those repairs as they did for disasters like the Deep Horizon oil spill in 2010. “In the past when you had a natural...

    Carney: Obama Didn’t Ask Why He Didn’t Know about IRS Before News Reports By Andrew Johnson May 21, 2013 4:12 PM Comments 21 Jay Carney told reporters that President Obama did not ask his senior staff why he was learning about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups for the first time through news reports two weeks ago, rather than from his staff. The administration has admitted that White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler was informed in late April of the inspector general report detailing the targeting and that she shared the information with members of the the president’s senior staff.

    You know, a White House that just got exposed for spying on journalists probably should be doing some bridge-rebuilding, especially for an administration who needs a friendly media as much as this one does. What’s the worst possible way to get back in the media’s good graces? Accusing them of being conspiracy nuts for asking about Kathleen Sebelius’ fundraising for ObamaCare, starting with CBS’ Major Garrett, who just got done fronting the Benghazi e-mail defense demolished by Glenn Kessler today. Thanks bunches, Major: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Struggling with a reporter about which Republican concerns are and are not legitimate, White House spokesman...

    Carney Compares Questions about Scandals to Birth-Cerificate Inquiries By Andrew Johnson May 21, 2013 2:49 PM Jay Carney tried to move past questions about the series of scandals surrounding the Obama administration by comparing them to questions about the president’s birth certificate at today’s press conference. Major Garrett asked Carney if the White House thought Republican inquiries were “legitimate” on the issues of Benghazi, the IRS, the Department of Justice targeting reporters, and the Department of Health and Human Service’s efforts to raise funds from private companies for promoting the health-care law. “We could go down the list of questions...
