Jay Carney, Master of Deflection (video)

Jay Carney, Master of Deflection (video)

It was a refreshing sight to see Monday evening when this video on Erin Burnett’s Out Front program on CNN caught my attention. 

What better way to depict the series of seemingly never ending deflections on important questions from White House press secretary Jay Carney than through this mashup of his “I would refer you to” answers.

It’s preceded by a mashup of deflections from other Obama administration personalities, which is summed up by Burnett with the astute observation that, “one of the only things this administration seems to ever openly discuss…is food.”

(Thank you for the mention and for grabbing this, Twitchy!)

You know, it was just the other day that I acknowledged the fact that CNN has been doing some good investigative work on the Benghazi story.  And “The truth about Benghazi: An Erin Burnett Outfront Special Investigation” will air Tuesday, August 6th at 7pm ET on CNN.

Things are getting rather interesting.

People who listen to Rush know this as “The Limbaugh Theorem”. Obama portrays himself as an outsider not responsible for what happens in the federal government.

That allows Obama to be in perpetual campaign mode, always positioning himself as a outsider just trying to help the little guy.

This investigative reporting from CNN is great, but where were there five years ago? If the media had done what they were supposed to do then, we wouldn’t be putting up with this Marxist regime.

    IF the CIA and FBI and our Legislators were really doing their job we would not have an anti-American Marxist Islamist faux-POTUS.

    And Chinese, Russian, Islamist spies and terrorists everywhere.

    If our Courts and Legislators were doing their job, they would police this runaway administration (and themselves).

      You’re right. And if our side had been doing their job when they were in the majority during Clinton’s administration, we wouldn’t have Obamacare. That’s when they should have come up with something that makes sense.

Press: “What does the president have to say about revelations that Benghazi…”

I actually am willing to cut Carney a lot of slack. He is very good at his job.

And his job is to take the crumbs of information his bosses deign to hand him, and go out in front of the cameras and say that and nothing else.

I’m willing to believe Carney doesn’t have the slightest clue about half the issues going on right now, because his bosses don’t NEED him to know in order to do his job. In fact, it actually complicates things if Carney DOES know what is going on, because there is the chance he’ll say the truth instead of the party line.

The person you need to pound is Obama and his administration.

[…] Jay Carney, Master of Deception | Legal Insurrection.  Once again my favorite mainstream news anchor pushes back, if ever so slightly, against the envelope of media sycophancy in the Obama era. Ms. Burnett nicely contrasts the reticence of White House officials like perennial clown Jay Carney to discuss actual policy, versus these folks with their endless expositions on fancy meal intake. Mmmm, Cheaspeake Bay crabcakes! […]

I still miss Nixon.
