Carney gets testy over more questions on lack of Obama plan

Ed Henry once again pushed the White House on when they will publicly release Obama’s plan, or at least send it to the CBO for analysis. Carney defended the fact that they don’t have a plan on paper and then accused Henry of creating a ‘thing’ for Fox News, replete with eye-rolling and condescension to boot:



Even Chris Christie implores the President to put his plan on the table, to take a risk:

Bottom line is Obama doesn’t have a plan because he doesn’t want to take a risk and lose politically. It’s all about 2012 for him, country be damned. But then hey, what’s new?

  1. Off topic, sorry. McCain read a Wall Street journal piece on the floor today that refers to “tea party hobbits” and which trashes Sharon Angle and Christine O’Donnell. (Levin played the clip). I’m so sick of McCain and just need to vent that how dare he malign us, the people, who held our noses and supported him anyway. He is a disgrace. Hero, Shmero. I’d like to rip the medals off his chest.

  3. The rhetoric on the left turned up about 50 degrees today. You can tell that the TEA Patriots are really getting under the skin of the elites up there. All I’ve seen today in the media and online is a full court press to make us citizens who care about fiscal responsibility look like kooks from mars….Unbelievable, but not really.

  4. nobama has no plan and it is all on purpose. he is not a leader but we all know that. Say whatever you want about CC, he fears no one and has guts and would beat barry.

  5. If one were to follow Mr. Carney’s logic, then it would beg the question as to why anyone would want to offer a plan (notwithstanding the House’s constitutional obligation.)

  6. I would like to write something clever here, but after seeing the Christie clip, I am afraid I will have to excuse myself whilst I get a fresh pair of underware.

  7. It is not the presidents jobs to come up with a plan, he is just to sign it or veto it.
    With that being said, you should not be shooting down everyone’s plan, if you don’t have one of your own. Obama is on campaign mode, nothing else.

    1. It may not be the Presidents “job” to come up with a plan, but it sure would help if he had anything to add besides sticking it to the people. And dont give me the crap about oh its the ones who make too much money… It touches everyone somehow eventually. The fact is this is one hell of an inept President. No experience, huge ego, petty and small minded and a racist. Yeah, I said it. i love that his mask is slipping. Someone needs to reach out and fully knock it off.

      1. If im trying to sell you a car, and you make an offer, and i don’t like your offer, as the person trying to sell you a car (aka raise the debt limit) i must make a counter offer ( aka a plan).

  8. Obama wants us to default to blame Republicans for the economy, conservatives want either a balanced budget or a default.

    After all is said and done, people will see that Obama put his political popularity in front of the well-being of the American people, not the other way around.

  9. That’s as precious as a princess pirouette. Ed is just doing “a thing” for Fox.

    Who is O’ doing his “thing” for? Marx? Alinsky? Cloward and Ugly?

    Oh wait, Francis FOX Piven is her full name isn’t it? I guess O’ is doing his “thing” for Fox as well. What a little weenie. The country will relish it when this administration gets their buns handed to them and the mustard kicked out of ’em. They will never ketchup.

  11. with Ed Henry CNN had him on a leash FOX on the other hand give employees more freedom.

    1. Be careful though – you need to read the small print. There’s a clause for coaching other kids baseball teams and funding arms shipments to mexican crime lords.

  12. B.O. has serious commitment issues. Michelle probably proposed, dressed him and walked him down the aisle and reminded him the answer is not present.

  13. Had a feeling they were referring to the budget proposal the WH gave as the administration’s plan. That should have opened up an attack over the intent to add 9 trillion to the debt as the Dem plan for the country and how adding so much debt is likely to destroy the U.S. credit rating. The issue has to be re-framed because we are in a position to take the fall by offering a weak plan that does little to combat the problem.
