Whoa. Press secretary Carney should have stuck with his incessant use of “unfettered” instead during today’s press briefing. Journalists asking questions about Obama administration scandals? Totally birthers, you guys.

That’s right. Clown Carney made the shark-jumping leap from questions about various Obama administration scandals to … birthers.

Heh.

Citizens are rightly disgusted.

It does further expose something, though.

Bingo.

Running scared … straight into idiocy.

        • Bemani Dog

          That’s offensive. Baghdad Bob was more truthful than Clown Carney.

  • Alex Furlong

    It makes sense in a rather peculiar way. The Birthers issue is one that Carney & Company love. It’s a ridiculous accusation that could have been put to rest a year before Obama finally signed the paperwork to release his birth certificate. That was a year of the administration holding it up as an example of unhinged Republican attacks and the last desperate hope of racists and conspiracy mongers.

    Now that Carney is faced with a hostile media (perhaps for the first time in his career) he desperately wants to go back to the old ways. Back to a simpler time. One where the friendly media asked bullshit questions and he was able to share a chuckle about silly conspiracies.

    • BlahBlah

      Except it was never a ridiculous accusation. I loathe conspiracy theories as much as the next person but this one never was a conspiracy theory. There’s so much that is hidden and doesn’t add up about the clown in the WH and that every American had the right to know before voting.

      • OLLPOH

        Conspiracies can be true or false.

      • Alex Furlong

        That’s not the point. Did you see the media ask those questions? No, of course not. The media solely focused on the people making the accusations and asked official spokesdrones about the craziness of the questioners. Carney wishes for the days of “Crazed right-wingers are making accusations about Obama’s birth. How silly is that?” which is low-hanging fruit for a press secretary.

      It is a FORGERY ! His SS # is from WHERE? Obama’s Social Security Number was issued for a state he never lived in.

      TRUTH:
      President Obama’s Social Security number (if he hasn’t been issued a
      new one since his original one was spread all over the Internet) begins
      with the digits 042.

        this is the thing lets go after what we can prove it take ground not something we will not know for sure until he is out of office and his records finally get released. Lets focus on the scandals at hand

        • kim

          That is an easy out. It wasn’t ‘birthers’ who spent 20 years telling people he was born in Kenya. That was Obama.
          Wasn’t ‘birthers’ who allowed publisher to list Kenya as birthplace for 17 yrs. Wasn’t ‘birthers’ whose attorney stood in court in NJ and told judge that she would not enter b.c. into evidence, as it was not proof of his birthplace,wasn’t birthers who spent a million keeping his records sealed. That was all Obama.
          No matter where he was born, it needs resolved, with the document examined by independant experts to satify everyone, so it can be over.

    • rhodi

      The Obama admin just replaced O’s birth certficate with yet another Photoshopped version. Why bother if they don’t have anything to hide.

      • Alex Furlong

        You’re assuming that you know what it is he’s hiding.

      • Alex Furlong

        You’re assuming that you know what it is he’s hiding.

    • kim

      except that like the birthers, YOU don’t know the truth either. Since you are not an expert on documents, and didn’t examine it, you don’t know that those who say it is faked are wrong. Nobody knows where he was born, except himself. And he IS the person who spent 20 years telling everyone he had been born in Kenya. Because it was true? Because it made him sound exotic? IDK. I wasn’t there either, but I do know documents can be faked.

    • Vought

      Every comment before mine in this thread (excluding Kelly’s) shows the reason why Carney mentioned Obama’s birth cert. There is not a single comment about the IRS, Benghazi or the AP scandals. We can all debate more than one issue at a time, but let’s not lose focus on any of them.

      • Alex Furlong

        Yes, thank you.

        Ace has a couple of really astute observations about the birth certificate fiasco that I think more people really need to ponder.

        1) Regardless of where he was born, the dude is in office. You’re not going to suddenly get him out over this issue. All you do is deflect attention away from Obama and towards the ranting.

        2) How is it that we don’t have a formalized process for authenticating eligibility for the office of POTUS? Running for POTUS requires you filing papers and showing you have at least some popular support for the job. Why isn’t proving you’re eligible part of this process?

        • BlahBlah

          1) That is true. It was true right from the start that no matter what was uncovered he would never get out of office because it would just be a crisis of untold proportions. It doesn’t change the fact however that there’s so much that is unknown. Deflection is on Carney.

          2) If I recall correctly, but I’m not sure, there is such a process within the party whose candidate it is. Did Barry lie to them? Did whoever is in charge just cover it up? I have no clue. I do think that it woulda gone a lot differently if Barry were a white dude and the question was if he were born in Iceland or Hawaii.

    I will bet that Carney will not last the full second term, he will end up on the funny farm or he will resign as his predecessor Robert Gibbs. You have to be a sociopath like Obama to be able to live with all his lies. Basically, without a soul. JMO!

    • LeishaTeach

      Carney is a lying liar just like his boss. In fact, he called O the day after he won in 2008 to ask for a job. He is 100% sold out.

        it’s impossible not to lie if you are ovomits spokesman…ovomit and valerie jarrett are professional, pathological liars and so carney is either gonna lose his soul or he is gonna get out.. it won’t be long before he goes is my guess

    Jay Carney has redefined “birther” to include anyone who thinks the president is responsible for what the executive branch does.

    • vetgal1970

      It is virtually interchangeable with all the other words they have used to describe us. It has dual purpose. It distracts from the issue and makes the questioners fear that they will be painted with the same brush that they have used on the rest of us ‘racist’ folks looking for accountability from the POTUSino.

    Knowing what we know about Benghazi, AP, IRS and the Fox News Witch Hunt to be Completely Factual, does this now mean they’ve thrown us a bone on the Birth Certificate and Selective Service Card fraud? The same things that they have been Vilifying anyone who uttered the words Birth Certificate. We know the current scandals are factual but now the door is open on the other stuff too since they made the association! Calling Americas Sheriff to come forth with his evidence too. I also read the other day that his own attorneys acknowledge his BC is fake in fear of committing perjury themselves. A case in NJ to keep his name off the ballot because his BC was fake and his attorneys argued and somehow won, saying that because the BC was clearly Fake it should not be allowed to be admitted as evidence which was then thrown out because it was the complainants only piece of evidence.

  • EVA-04

    Personally, I wont believe he was born in America until real proof has been brought out. The people who was trying to prove that his birth certificate was legitimate couldn’t.

  • drewder

    So is carney suggesting there may be truth to the birth certificate thing?

  • Craig Crane

    Maybe Carney was trying to say the questions about his birth are as valid as these questions. Maybe if we start talking about his birth again, Obama can at least leave and might avoid jail. With the IRS, Bengazi, F&F el. al……..Maybe not so much.

    On the surface the entire OB group appears to be way over its head and some of that might be true, however deeper down there are hidden and disclosed agendas between them and the “boss” and whoever is behind the boss? .

    Benghazi: Below is a (full text) transcript (from the Washington Post) of Obama’s Speech at the U.N. General Assembly, just 14-days after the 3- Al Qaida Terror Attacks in Benghazi on 9/11/12, which horrendously took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Troy Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty and Obama did nothing to prevent these horrendous Terror Attacks.

    Then for “yourself or yourselves”, read the paragraphs in which you find the letters and do interpret what you find and what you don’t find.

    >>>Note: Be sure check All 5 pages of 5.<<>>In this Obama’s UN speech, the word terror was used ONCE, that is ONE TIME
