Cockroach Jay Carney: ‘Benghazi happened a long time ago’

Utterly loathsome.

At today’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney wanted to be perfectly clear about how he’s going to handle questions about Benghazi from now on:

“A long time ago,” Jay? Try telling that to the families of the four brave Americans killed on September 11, 2012 — just seven and a half months ago.

For them, the pain is as raw as ever.

Twitterers are sickened:

Sure is funny how that works, huh?

How about both?

Unbelievable. Can Carney stoop any lower?

Just wait. It’s only a matter of time.

    That’s what they were hoping for.. that our short attention span would kick in. I think their luck is running out.. I HOPE their luck is running out! I pray their luck is running out!

      I have NO idea why everyone keeps saying we have short attention spans,..I remember asking what happened to many stories that are put out by the MEDIA and than DISAPPEAR.. which is WHY I no longer watch or listen to .. PEOPLE don’t have short attention spans the MEDIA does..

    By NO means marginalizing the event, yet simply drawing an equitable comparison………… but didn’t the Sandy Hook shooting
    happen just 3 months after the Benghazi event? Thus, if Jay Carney
    thinks Benghazi happened “a long time ago” and implies that it is
    thereby irrelevant today and is deserving of no further discussion, does
    that mean, 3 months from now, Jay Carney will think Sandy Hook “was a
    long time ago” is also thereby irrelevant and deserves no further
    discussion?

      I’m gonna ask him…. over and over and over and over again. >:^]

    • trixiewoobeans

      My thoughts exactly. By their “criteria”, they can only milk Sandy Hook for political reasons (gun control) for three more months? We’ll see….

      And Gabby Gifford’s shooting was a REEEALLY long time ago.

    We demand to know was Obama in the Whitehouse on 9/11/2012?
    We demand to know did Obama physically take the Intelligence Report the morning of 9/11/2012? If Not? Why didn’t he?
    We demand to know that Obama is always on the scene after the fact, for what reason?
    We demand to know why Obama said it was an On-line video that caused the Murders of our Hero Diplomats?
    We demand to know when Obama will resign?

    • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

      Good point. There are people in my neighborhood who consider themselves free slaves. So if they can claim to have been slaves when that happened before anyone alive today was even born, then why do liberals get bent out of shape when Benghazi is brought up? I’ll tell you why, because when the truth comes out, Obama will be shamed into resignation.

      • 3seven77

        Obama has no shame. He won’t leave until he’s impeached.

    Jay Carney has always come off as a professional stooge for Obama, dealing with the hard questions while his boss is off playing golf, or hanging out with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

    This last comment proves the man has sold his soul.

    • MyrmidoNOT

      You cannot sell…what you do not own.
      You cannot own…what you do not have.

    • $24698634

      The definition of press secretary is professional stooge for the President, any President. Don’t be so shocked.

      • MyrmidoNOT

        Quasi-true. Although Jay (the Barker) “carny”…
        is not a professional. (He is barely a stooge.)
        I’m not shocked, I’m disappointed
        We should expect better of a lying liar.

        • $24698634

          Just a matter of who you want to hate.

          • MyrmidoNOT

            No hating, here. My expectation is that we shouldn’t be mislead…(which is ‘my’ issue). The ‘message’ as sent, was not “spun”…it was ‘deceiving’ (in it’s nature).

            Ignoring ‘something’ under-the-rug…is differing in meaning than “trying to change the narrative/truth” just ‘to fit’ an agenda. imho

      • David

        Remember Tony Snow a man of integrity who was not a stooge, but an individual who took his job seriously and gave serious answers. Most certainly, he defended his president, but he was not a liar.

        • $24698634

          Remember Ari Fleischer who told us to watch what we say after 9-11?  Or Ron Zeigler who defended the crooked Nixon administration?  Or Scott McClellan who lied for GWB?  Or Joe Lockhart who lied for Clinton?  Or Speakes and Fitzwater who covered for Reagan?
          More of those, than Snows’.

    And we never got any answers, Chump; and not

    White House lowlives, aided and abetted by Comrade Clinton,
    insisted the Benghazi inquiries be deferred.
    Now, the Obama disciples are manufacturing outrage;
    that America has the audacity to try and discover the truth.

  • Linda http://omega57.wordpress

    Unbelievable. Disrespecful & glib. Happened under admin’s watch & was an US ambassador + others. Did you forget that little point?

  • Lynn

    I’d like to ask Carney & Hillary then, why do we take 9/11 to remember the many Americans that died that day in the terrorist attacks? Does that not matter, Hillary? Not only that, but the ones who knew they were going to die and deterred a plane from killing other Americans? Because that happened a long time ago, Carney, do we just forget?

    By far Jay Carney is the worst press secretary I’ve ever seen. I would give him the benefit of the doubt because he has to cover barryboy’s @$$, but he’s constantly putting his foot where the sun doesn’t shine. I guess all these horrendous events can be filed away and not brought out again like 9/11 and Benghazi. Thankfully, the American public doesn’t follow the barryboy/carney mantra of lets forget what we don’t want to discuss. Jay really should be getting the dimwit award. He makes himself look like a fool. Oh!should we all forget the Boston Bombings also under this administration. He and his boss better wizen up-we do not forget and they better think twice about pushing all these tragedies under the rug.

    Benghazi happened a long time ago according to Jay Carney. So there should have been no Watergate investigations after February 1973 then. Is that not correct?

  • gracepmc

    Oh Jay, it’s not over until the fat lady sings.

  • CatHerder

    Dachau happened a long time ago too, should we just forget?

    I guess it makes sense he would say that. This administration seems to think that because the Constitution was written a long time ago, it no longer matters.

  • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

    Bush was President years ago, but it doesn’t stop the libs from bringing up his problems as President every chance they get. So if they can bring up stuff that happened years ago, they’ll just have to excuse us for demanding answers to something that happened less than a year ago.

    I’ll be sure to remember this the next time Obama, Carney or any other liberal starts whining about George Bush.

  • detroit19

    Jay Carnivalbarker is right…Benghazi did happen a long time ago, so long ago, in fact, that we should have had, not only, a full explanation by now, but someone, two or three should be in jail.

    • APW

      True.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Let’s be clear. Benghazi was illegal guns from Lybia, through Turkey, to Syrian opposition fighters. Approved by Obama, executed by the CIA, using State Department resources and “contractors.” And when it all went bad, they cut those guys loose and let them die.

    But it happened a long time ago so it’s okay.

  • DV S1EOG

    Yep, it happened a long time ago, way back in 2012 I believe. The world was so much different back then.

    It hasn’t even been a year yet. How “outraged” would he be if someone said the same thing as Newtown? I guess we can make the same argument when they talk about Aurora, or the Gabby Gifford’s shooting. @#*&%!$ morons.

        Sorry I can’t recall the exact coverage of those events. However, I don’t remember the Bush administration blaming any of them on a video. I don’t remember there being any reports that the Bush administration had reduced security at any of those embassies. Don’t remember specific requests for more security being denied by the State Department. Don’t remember the Bush administration refusing to answer questions about the attacks, because “It’s too soon” then because “it was a long time ago” certainly not “what difference does it make.” I am confident that the press would have never, ever have accepted those “answers” from the Bush administration. In which of those attacks was it alleged that Bush went to bed during the attack and no one sent help?
