On May 15th 2013, Mr Carney had the unenviable task of defending the administration’s position on Benghazi, the IRS fiasco, and the AP phone tapping. Truly a difficult stance for a competent person, but still a train-wreck because one cannot deny the carnage.
Carney did the best he could, but contradictions abounded, and the press actually stepped up to be counted. Time will tell if the media is putting a ‘face’ on America’s disappointment to protect Obama, only to turn once more to the winking of all wrong, but in the meantime, it is amusing to watch.
Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, has stated that his non profit work, ‘Samaritan’s Purse,’ was recently targeted by the IRS. The connection ? His father was a supporter of Romney, hence against Obama. Some say a mere coincidence, but it has also been proven that there has been a lop sided favor towards those agencies who lean left.
So Carney appears like a pelican in the wilderness, just plain lost in his own words, as he tried to say ‘people will be held accountable,’ blah blah blah. Damage control was in full mode while the word for the day was ‘unfettered,’ spoken no less than 7 times by Carney. This small observation proves there is a concerted effort to defend and protect at any cost, the image of the Obama admin.
I am of the opinion that if Carney would actually place the blame of SOMETHING at Obama’s feet, he would appear to have some level of respectability. But no, nothing, never. Obama is god-like and God does no wrong. The press corp appears to have had enough of the spin cycle, but pity Jay Carney. He will be out of work soon, for one can only hide so long without the mental health taking its toll. Some fabrication will be admitted as a reason for his departure, and a new Gibbs, Carney, etc. will be the new spin-meister.
The briefing by Carney was the worst ever, and people are finally taking notice of the mischievousness of all involved. If this is what we know, imagine what happens that we do not know about.
