Oooh, busy work for the press! That’s right, the White House passed out a handout during the press briefing today. Twitter users decided to hand out the mockery.

Heh. No such luck. Sorry, Detroit councilwoman! No actual handouts for you.

It was a paper handout. Of a blog post.

Apparently, the Obama administration believes it needs to keep things simple for the poor dears in the press.

What, no printout of the tweets scrolling across the official White House website? Sheesh! Ah, the high-tech White House, what with its week old paper printouts of blog posts. Did Carney crank them out on the mimeograph machine? Why didn’t he set up a projector and some transparencies while he was at it? Oh, that’s right. Transparency is now a bad word. Paper, it is!

Math is hard, for the White House. And, evidently, so is technology.

    Making sure the press doesn’t accidently stumble on or get distracted by some contradictory facts during their trip to the website.

    The irony is that last year Obama said that we could raise $1.2 trillion by limiting tax deductions. Of course, now that the election is over, he has “more flexibility.” America, you voted for this.

    They’re not called the White House steno pool for nothing.

  • stuckinIL4now

    They actually committed something to paper and gave it out publicly? How will they, in the future, deny it ever existed?

    • Kevin Krom

      They gave it to the press. If Obama doesn’t want it reported, it won’t be.

        And it’s paper so they can burn it.

    I almost puked when I read the line about making the tax code “simpler, fairer, and more efficient”. The fair part is really bizzaro universe type thnking. Fair to who?

    Handing out their marching orders

    Carney had to hand out a printed explanation of the math because he is woefully stupid and can’t begin to explain even the simplest parts of the issue. What a smarmy, whiney little dumbass!

    • TomJB

      Give him a break! The man can only be expected to memorize so much…

      (Tongue fully in cheek. The truth doesn’t need to be memorized – you never get caught in a truth)

    Since the WH usually gives the LSM the questions to ask before the press conferences, why does it surprise anyone that they are now also providing the answers?

    Just askin …

    Hrmm, think I need to go work on that Asteroid Magnet some more.

      And both the questions and answers are both wrong :)

    How come O didn’t just tweet the stuff?
    Oh, that’s right, he needs a room full of handlers for that..

  • ember

    That paper is for us to do our ciphering on.

    Oh dear, I’m sure they pis$ed of some tree hugger’s using all that paper!

    Rumor has it a ticker-tape machine has been ordered

  • Lin Jarvis

    On the issues, this adm. has contradicted each other’s stories so much these handouts will help keep their stories straight. Also gives MSM their “talking points”.
    As for the content: Figures never lie, but liars sometimes figure.

    The Dear Leader directs his Propaganda Minister to distribute his talking points in writing to the “idiot” reporters. How thoughtful.

    if you actually read and understand that hand out, even it says we need to cut spending NOT raise taxes. every single educated person that can do math knows raising taxes lowers revenue. MORE people need to pay a lower tax, and entitlement spending needs to be cut in half. those two all by themselves will end the national debt in SHORT ORDER.
