Jay Carney claims Obama can’t just call up Eric Holder to find out what’s going on with the subpoena of the AP’s phone records because it will show up on Fox News or something:

Dumbest man alive.
When he is done in the WH he could have an outstanding career as a fiction writer.
DawgfanInFL Isn’t that what he is now…:) lol.
bookmoviegeek DawgfanInFL LOL!
Don’t be fooled. Obama involves himself in local investigations that have nothing to do with the Feds.
It’s what he does. On top of that, he always claims he knows what Holder is doing when he defends him
Obama knows ALL about the wiretaps, the stand down orders in Benghazi , the mutilation of talking points,…….Its all from his Whitehouse.
mokadokado And yet somehow it can’t be tracked to him. The Chicago way; the mafia would be proud!
mokadokado Right…NOTHING like these instances come from some low level office. These are impeachable offenses and should be investigated as such.
Carney is cracking… and i’m looooovin it XD
Daily press conferences have become my comedy hour. Jay keeps squirming like he is, he’ll soon be under the podium.
JohnBohler I kind of feel bad for the guy. It must be hard being a lying underling tool!
Conservative_Hippie JohnBohler He’s going to have to be replaced. With everything going on it will be impossible for him to remember all the lies he’s told. They need a new person who will be able to start fresh.
americalsgt Conservative_Hippie JohnBohler Okay okay but can’t we get him a reality show on A&E? I’d really miss seeing the little fellow dancing without music. Maybe his wife could develop and act with dogs in little tu-tu’s.
americalsgt Conservative_Hippie JohnBohler yup.
WordsFailMe americalsgt Conservative_Hippie JohnBohler LOL!
Conservative_Hippie JohnBohler Not for Carney he was born to the yoke
Is it just me, or does he always look like a 7 year old in his 1st suit?
“Imagine the story on Fox, that’s why” He’s got a point, there. Imagine the NON story from the rest of the MSM! What a dope!
It’s nice of Carney to admit that Obama does is admin contacts behind closed doors.
Picked up on that myself. Sunshine Law, anyone.
DawgfanInFL Sunshine is such a beautiful thing!
I might also add that this is where Obama’s “proxies” come in. This way he stays at least one or two “contacts” away from blame.
That’s awesome! Lol!!
So not ok for this story to be commented on because of national security, but okay to leak names of our service men and women? and their missions? Jay Carney must drink a whole lot, in order to face the “reporters” I use that term loosely.
The WH must be writing out BIG CHECKS to the MSM “presstitutes” for him to make a statement like that
The arrogance just never quits – does it?
Here are Jay’s lame, non-helpful, impotent talking points:
1) The press should have unfettered access to news. He said that at least 15 times before FNC moved away.
2) There’s an on going investigation so I can’t talk about anything. 20+ times…
3) Obama wants to strike a balance. 10 or more times…
This was the saddest briefing ever. Jaybird avoided talking off his talking points – to a painful extreme. The news staff were getting hostile and angry and I think there’s going to be a huge fallout from this. Watch Dana tonight on The Five so she can share her insights from being in Jay’s shoes… it’ll be entertaining.
I’d be surprised if that pathetic, arrogant weasel doesn’t resign soon… because honestly, his performance (as a side show?) was an utter disgrace.
Once again, this regime is trying to claim they didn’t know about any of this or that it’s all politically motivated. Please pass the torches and pitchforks.
The Sentinel I really don’t know that he’s doing a bad job. When you think about it, he has impossible positions and ridiculous claims by the WH to defend. Obama is making Carney’s job nearly impossible to do without telling the truth….and of course he would be fired immediately if he did that.
If it were me, I would have quit a long time ago. Then again, I would never take a job for a corrupt, chronic liar like Obama.
kong1967 The Sentinel
Good point. They must have surgically removed his soul and conscience… he’s awful. And really good at awful.
I’d be surprised if he lasts through the rest of May since he’s really been in the hot seat so much. If he survives… he’ll make the devil himself proud.
The Sentinel I’ve heard other predictions that he won’t last more than 6 months. We’ll see.
“3) Obama wants to strike a balance. 10 or more times.”
I hate to tell ya Carney ol boy but you cant ‘balance’ a crooked ‘scale’.
The IRS came flat out and said they were targeting CONSERVATIVE organizations. There’s no ‘if’ about it.
The Sentinel You might say the Jaybird dropped his points and showed us his true self.
The best thing to come out of this is Carney claiming the WH knew nothing about these. I pray that comes back to bite them in the butt big time.
The Sentinel And someone in the press actually asked about the comparison of Obama to Nixon. That was awesome. Biting the hand that feeds you is never good.
The scandal factors notwithstanding, there is, IMO, NO COMPARISON WHATSOEVER BETWEEN NIXON AND OBAMA! In fact, you are comparing two men on opposite ends of the competency poles. Nixon had an administration marked by political achievements. Obama has done NOTHING for this country but DESTROY IT. Sadly, Nixon will forever be synonymous with Watergate, which was nothing in light of all the successes he had. BO, on the other hand, has done nothing, but because of his race we refuse to see the corruption, and devastation that he has created…
doofuschmartz Excellent point
The Sentinel Wait, something is going to come back and bite Michelle?
Oh, I’m sorry. I misread that. I thought you said ”that it comes back to bite them in the big butt …”
SineWaveII The Sentinel
That’s funny right there !
SineWaveII The Sentinel
this clown really needs to double down on his dear leader propaganda , to save his sorry a&&… if and when his furor falls.. I’m hoping when.. but am afraid impeachment isn’t an option… they are too scared of the riots and unrest if the 1st black president is impeached….J M O
Obama is as incompetent to lead as a puppet; he seems to know little about what is happening around him and is as deceptive as that mother of the bomber who thinks her son is innocent. Finally the press seems to be waking up from their coma and asking tough questions while the President meets with members of the 1% he favors at parties.
The house of fragile cards are falling quickly…I don’t think this administration will survive intact.
Why can’t Obama call Holder; is he not Holder’s boss? Obama cannot and will not get away with blaming everyone for every problem. Its about time he took some responsibility and its about time the press makes him!
Don’t bet on it
He will not go down easily!
njmom I like jay-jay’s response- “Can you imagine what FOX news would do to us if President Babbama pulled the Atty General’s chain?” crickets…..
Well when it comes to describing the Obama admin. I think that Simon and Garfunkel said it best.
“lie la lie (boom) lie la lie lie lie la lie, lie la lie (boom) ….
The “boom” is the sound of another scandal starting up.
I’m surprised Carney can remember to breathe all by himself.
I thought I heard a ventilator
YoJoe DicksTrash I wonder where they inserted it….lol
WordsFailMe YoJoe DicksTrash
We BOTH know -
I just didn’t want to have that image
I would ordinarily wonder how someone as bumbling and lying as Jay Carney keeps his job…but then I catch myself and remember that he’s a key part of the most inept, corrupt administration in American history and suddenly it makes perfect sense.
Carney you’re fool. You’ve lost the respect of fellow journalists because of sophomoric and moronic lies to protect yourself, Obama and his administration. BTW, I wouldn’t be worrying about just Fox News:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/obamas-claim-he-called-benghazi-an-act-of-terrorism/2013/05/13/7b65b83e-bc14-11e2-97d4-a479289a31f9_blog.html?hpid=z2’ – Tuesday May 14, 2013
The MSM and even the Daily Kos are gunning for you Jay.
Conservator1 Maybe carney will go the way of … bibbs? No… Ribbs? Libbs? I’ve got it! gibbs!
One tends to wonder if that happens, will obama be able to find a replacement. Without blackmailing one, that is.
Gosh… it just really SUCKS that FOX is the ONLY news network that holds us accountable. If it weren’t for them we could get away will ALL KINDS of illegal activity! GO FOX!
More than likely Obama DID call Eric Holder, and gave the order to listen in on the phone calls in the first place.
I got a big kick out of watching the Press Corps. (not just Fox) going at Carney over the AP phone scandal. Obama finally threw one of his biggest assets under the bus. The same ‘Lame Stream Media’ sycophants who have been licking his boots for the last 5 years.
I got an even bigger kick out of watching Megyn Kelly using the same “Sgt. Schultz’ link I posted here, the last time Carney was before the Press Corps. explaining what he didn’t know anything about.
I thought this a very useful interview. He is flat out admitting that Obama did this illegally in order to stop the leaks from within the White House.
I mean you have to undo the parsing but that is in essence what Jay said.
You would have to have the IQ of a Neanderthal man to believe Obama has not talked in depth about this to Holder.
I’m enjoying this. Immensely!
I took 3 Cold showers today!
Did anyone notice when F.Chuck Todd pressed him about prosecuting twice as many leakers as all of the previous administrations combined, Jay Carney actually blamed the Bush administration? He said there were investigations pending when O took office.
Remember the first rule of liberalism.
“When nobody believes what you’re talking about. Deny, deny, deny and drag Bush out”.
I wonder when Valerie Jarrett’s going to be thrown under the bus?
SigEliteDark Never. The wheels maybe. There is no way she is going anywhere. She knows everything and if she is asked to fall on her sword, the whole story will come out.
I agree – NEVER!
americalsgt SigEliteDark One can only hope and dream
She is the Devil’s mistress……..the one with the ears.
GetWhatYouPayFor SigEliteDark americalsgt Lilith incarnate
americalsgt SigEliteDark Exactly.
I just him a case of “DEPENDS”
Notice that he had a dark suit on today !
Look folks, maybe we ought to bide our time on this:. if President Babbama resigns…..
WordsFailMe It will never happen, he believes his own lies. He has not stolen or redistributed (both the same to me) enough or fundamentally changed America completely yet
Criminal investigation involving the AP but “review” on the Inspector General’s investigation? Keep dancing Carney.
OrangeoneAt one point Jay-Jay responds to the tough question about “consequences” from an an especially courageous female journalist “You’re asking me to prove a negative….”
Tom Hanks, as Sherman McCoy, in “Bonfire of the Vanities,” limply employs the same line to unsuccessfully defend himself against Mrs. McCoy’s accusation of infidelity. Do you think Tom Hanks will get the Jay-Jay Carney role in the upcoming Steven Schpleenberg movie, “Bonfire of the Bullsh*tters?”
BREAKING NEWS!: Carney confirms that the entire main stream media in the US are Obama lap dogs except FOX News.
Except for some elements of FOX News. I don’t think the Bush-RINO wing of the Republicans who hold forth at FOX have any love for the Tea Party. That’s why none of them were on the story when the complaints were first being voiced, and have only jumped onto the bandwagon after the IRS fessed up.
CalCoolidge WordsFailMe I could not agree more Cal! It’s almost like the RION’s have to be driven out of their mud wallow.
Watch out! Carney has just handed obama the replacement blameshift for “It’s Bush’s fault!”
Now it’s Fox’s fault for – gasp – reporting news! The fiends!
The shamestream media doesn’t report news, so they’re safe.
lawngreen He said it was Rush’s fault last week, I guess it is Fox’s turn again to shift the blame upon.
Ginawmson Maybe even Leftists get tired of monotony.
No. They like monotony. They like anything with mono in it. They like the monopoly of government power. Mono-payer health care. One leader, one Fuhrer, one Germany. Obama – the one.
CalCoolidge lawngreen Ginawmson You are on fire Cal! I love it!
Familiarize yourself with Chicago and now give those guys unlimited funds and the power of the military. We the people just can’t imagine the level of tyranny.
There is a tendancy for good people to ALMOST feel sorry for Carney- DON’T! He is a little marxist, picture him in the worker’s cap with the red star- an apparatchik that works for a commissar. The Dems say redistribution of wealth. They really mean stealing all the money for themselves and their pet allies, while driving freedom lovers into ruin. We have to be tough to match this Chicago Marxist Smiley Face….OBAMA.
The lapdog media’s feelings were hurt and they’ll nip at 0′s heels for a while, then they’ll be back to kissing his cheek(s).
Some one please smack him in the mouth.
If it were humanly possible, that creature would poop for the “pResident.”
