Brit Hume has been known to toss down the ol’ “OMG” — when mocking the “largest conference ever devoted to female orgasm,” for example — but this time, it’s Jay Carney who has Hume OMGing.
Well, Carney’s lips were moving so …
“What we see happening with this Republican strategy is a willingness to threaten the very foundation of the world’s greatest economic power, the economy that basically stabilizes the entire world economic system, and that is a very risky proposition,” Carney said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Carney said the fear is that the government shutdown is “the trailer to a movie” of the strategy Republicans are going to apply to the upcoming debt ceiling, which the U.S. will reach on Oct. 17.
Others on Twitter were similarly taken with Carney’s mendacity:
First it was just the American economy. Now it’s the world economy. What’s next, the intergalactic monetary trade system?
