Jake Tapper did a great job putting Jay Carney on the spot today, asking him a pointed question about Obama’s seemingly non-stop campaign travel, the fact that most of his trips just happen to be in battleground states, and whether this means taxpayers are basically footing the bill for Obama’s campaign.
Of course, Carney denied the whole premise of the question. I guess we’re supposed to file all those campaign stops under “Official Presidential Business”, pretend the White House isn’t paying attention to what is or isn’t a battleground state, and take Carney at his word that the Obama campaign is going “by the book” when it comes to funding all these trips.
In other words, he thinks we all just fell off the turnip truck.
