    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.

    After a speech in which President Obama failed to discuss how he was going to fix Obamacare, save for providing a 1-800 number to call, which was not working during and immediately after his speech, White House press secretary Jay Carney went on to have a pretty rough press briefing. When ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked Carney, “If the website is not fixed, will people still need to pay the fine?” Carney refused to answer, saying that we were three weeks into a six-month long process and implying that we need not worry about this hypothetical. “You can’t really charge people...
  • Putin Didn't Save Obama, He Beat Him

    Maybe Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin really did discuss the idea of putting Syrian chemical weapons under international control last week on the sidelines of the G20 conference. Putin sure doesn’t care that Obama’s taking credit for the proposal, or that the administration is posturing like a Mob enforcer. “The only reason why we are seeing this proposal,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney, “is because of the U.S. threat of military action.” Right, Putin is laughing to himself. Whatever. If Obama wants to sell it like a Christmas miracle on Pennsylvania Avenue that’s fine with Putin, because Putin won....

    Jay Carney, the president's paid liar, announced several changes in the protocols of the White House press conferences. Due to a declining formality on the part of the press corps, new rules for dress are as follows: no pajamas, no chicken suits, no clown suits, dresses for women or others claiming to be women, suits for men or others claiming to be men. When the president enters the press room, all press corps members will jump to their feet, clench their right fist, and raise their right arm and yell "Obama Akbar, Obama Akbar ...." until the president gives the...

    If there was ever a doubt how the Obama administration, in general, and President Obama, in particular, felt about the death of four Americans in Benghazi, let them be put to rest. The same goes for the known fact that the IRS, under the direction of Obama administration officials, targeted conservative groups to prevent them from being granted tax except status. Jay Carney was very forthcoming in his press briefing yesterday and made it very plain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqY2kIDR48g The attitude we are seeing from the Obama administration irks me to no end. We are supposed to be a nation of people...

    A good question, implicitly posed by the existence of a two-hour interview CNN got with a “person of interest” in the Benghazi attack now explicitly posed by a group of lawmakers on Capitol Hill: A Republican lawmaker demanded Wednesday to know why investigators have not captured or killed any of the suspects in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, pointing out that CNN was able to find a man who some say was the ringleader in the assault that left the ambassador and three other Americans dead.Eight GOP lawmakers are asking that new FBI Director James Comey...
  • Carney Dodges When Asked Why Benghazi Suspect Hasn’t Been Contacted by FBI

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dodged the question when asked about CNN’s interview with an alleged Benghazi terrorist suspect and his claim to have never been contacted by the FBI: ED HENRY: I want to ask you about Benghazi, because CNN says one of its reporters sat down with someone who may be a lead suspect in the terror attack for two hours recently. This potential suspect says they’ve never been contacted by the Libyan government, and they’ve never been contacted by the FBI. How is it that someone who’s potentially a lead suspect in this terror attack could...

    Obama promises that finally, the secret that all America has been waiting for from the White House will be released shortly. “It will be out soon,” Today.com quotes the president as promising this week in a chat session on Reddit.No, it’s not the Fast and Furious documents. No, it’s not Obama’s college transcripts. Nor even a federal budget that might garner, say, one (1) vote in either chamber of Congress.No; instead the president continues to treat the country to a reality tour that trivializes the presidency, cheapens the office and makes the White House, perhaps, the most overvalued home since...
  • WH Press Sec Carney Avoids the Podium on his First Day

    02/14/2011 1:27:23 PM PST · by goods · 14 replies
    Newly installed White House Press Secretary Jay Carney spent his first day on the job officially staying away from the White House briefing room. Carney, who replaces former Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, decided not to speak to the nation today. The decision surprised and disappointed White House reporters, who presumably will have to wait until Tuesday to get a crack at President Obama’s new spokesman. Carney has never briefed from the podium, and his first appearance will be a high-stakes, high-pressure affair. Not only does he have no experience under the klieg lights, but he has only been in the...
  • White House picks Jay Carney as new press secretary

    President Obama has chosen former journalist Jay Carney to replace press secretary Robert Gibbs, a longtime loyalist, when he leaves the post in mid-February, according to a senior administration official. The White House will also name two new deputy chiefs of staff: Nancy-Ann DeParle, director of the Office of Health Reform, and Alyssa Mastromonaco, White House director of scheduling and advance. Carney, now the communications director for Vice President Biden, came to the White House in 2009 after a long career in journalism that included serving as Washington bureau chief of Time magazine. The White House had made clear it...
