Earlier today, CNN had a bombshell, reporting that dozens of CIA personnel were on the ground in Benghazi the night of the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, and the CIA is attempting to keep secret the reason they were all there.

Ace of Spades tweeted some observations about the latest addition to the “phony scandal” that is Benghazi:


Ace then predicted the non-answers that might be offered at tomorrow’s White House press conference conducted by Jay “phony scandals” Carney:

Finally, Ace hit on President Obama’s media strategy:

That strategy isn’t going very well at the moment. Time for the White House to schedule more speeches!

    I get that there are things that you can’t talk about openly like specific details of secret ongoing missions and stuff, but you know the grandma rule where if you wouldn’t say something in front of your grandma then you shouldn’t say it? How about as a politician if you can’t say what you’re doing to the American public, you shouldn’t be doing it?

      Exactly. Like a CIA “black op” that’s going to make the Iran-Contra scandal look like a high school play.

  • Marjorie

    I refer you to the Department of Phony Scandals because I don’t know what you’re alluding to…

    This is how I see Jay Carney’s future:

    And, they’re coming to take me away, ha, ha
    They’re coming to take me away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
    To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
    And I’ll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
    And they’re coming to take me away, ha, ha
    To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
    And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
    And they’re coming to take me away, ha, ha
    To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time

      I’ll be glad when they take him away, ha, ha
      I’ll be glad when they take him away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
      To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time…

    Regardless the question Jay will appreciate it no matter what.

    • iconoclast33

      Unless it is asked by a 15 year old. Then he will unleash clown hell.

    Phony scandal: O broke (didn’t break, your choice) par today.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Let’s play the Carney Drinking Game while watching the presser. Every time he says “phony scandal,” “I don’t have that information,” or any of his other dodges. We’ll be snockered in five minutes.

    • Billie Slash

      Then afterward, we’ll drunk tweet Hillary #LyingHagWithBloodyHands

    • Lady 12

      What about “unfettered?”

    Carney reminds me of Stan Freberg from the Monkees episode, Monkees v Machine.

    • Adela Wagner

      Gave you an upper just for remembering an episode of the Monkees.

      • Roto

        and a clip where Mike Nesmith DIDN’T wear his green stocking cap

        • World B. Free

          He kinda looks like Dustin Hoffman in “The Graduate” in that shot.

          • Adela Wagner

            OMGosh I didn’t notice that, but now it’s all I see. hahaha

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      #MusicTriviaTime I faintly remember that episode… Speaking of Monkees (KING FINK OBAMA’s Cronies, and the Lamestream Media Lapdogs..)… RAAAAACCCCIIIISSTTT! XD Jawamax 8<{D}

  • forgetyoutooo

    I doubt Carney and his smug smile will be “appreciating while dodging” questions tomorrow….he won’t be there. He is never there when a new scandal revealed.

  • Beto_Ochoa

    This scandal get phonier by the minute.

  • Malcolm_Kirkpatrick

    Whatever happened to “Bush’s fault” and “we inherited this mess”?.

    • Roto

      Obama said he “inherited a phoney mess”….. err, wait

    • Jarhead83

  • tops116

    At this point, I’m surprised Carney doesn’t bring an actual squirrel into the press room and just let it run around.

    • Jeremy
      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        That should keep the Lamestream Lapdogs busy for awhile… XD Jawamax 8<{D}

    • truebeliever101

      How do you get coffee out from under the keys of your keyboard? That was hilarious, and even worth the mess…thanks for the much needed belly laugh.

  • nickdqwk

    Oh for the love of God I do miss Tony Snow RIP!

    • World B. Free

      I miss ANYONE who can just give an honest, straightforward answer to any of these perfectly fair questions that Carney gets asked.

      • nickdqwk

        That is who Tony Snow was.

  • Roto

    “Helen? Helen??? Helen has the next question…. Where’s Helen Thomas?”

    I’ve known a long time it was an illegal gun-running operation being run out of there. Aaron Klein of Investigative radio broke that months ago.

    If you schedule a press conference for a Saturday, then it never really happened. #OBAMALAND

  • I M Free

    Jay “the incredible” Carney will say “I just heard it from news reports”

  • Ipsophakto

    Press: “Is the news about possible arms trafficking through Benghazi increasing or decreasing the proportion of “phony” in that scandal?”

    Carney: “I really appreciate that question. ….(pause)…….Squirrel-SharkNado!!!!!!!”
