This afternoon, Jay Carney once again took to the podium to weave his tangled web of Benghazi lies. Fortunately for us, Fox News’ Ed Henry, absent at yesterday’s sickening spectacle, had a chance to take a crack at Carney. And it was magnificent.

Henry started with a simple, straightforward question:

Carney couldn’t come up with a decent answer:

And, taking a cue from his boss, he passed the buck:

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up:

You can view video here. We recommend watching the full exchange, but here’s just a sample:

Henry: If the email was not about Benghazi, as you said yesterday and say again today, why did the White House turn it over to a conservative group seeking information about Benghazi?

Carney: You would have to ask the State Department about how they responded to FOIA requests. I would, again, point you to the fact — I mean, all you have to is read it, Ed. All right? Top line points, goals, that kind of stuff. The only mention of Benghazi in the email is a question about, what’s your response to a story by the Independent newspaper in, uh, the UK, that says we have intelligence — that we had intelligence — 48 hours in advance of the attack that was ignored. “Not aware of any actionable intelligence” was the answer. And then, what does it do? It cuts and pastes the same line from the CIA talking points that, again, was what Ambassador Rice used.

Henry: How about Benghazi? Why turn it over in a Benghazi suit?

Carney: You would have to ask the State Department about their process for responding to FOIA requests. Again, you can just read it and then decide for yourself. As many people have now said and written, like, this is a conspiracy theory in search of a conspiracy.

Satisfied with the press secretary’s answer? Ed Henry certainly wasn’t, and he continued to push an increasingly agitated Carney. Just how deeply did he manage to get under Carney’s skin? Four words: Reductio ad Fox News.

For the record, Henry wasn’t having any of it.

It’s almost as if the White House has it in for Fox News or something.

Sad, but not surprising.

Well, unlike Clown Carney, Henry is a professional.

Henry, as always, conducted himself like a grownup. And viewers are grateful to him.

Twitchy coverage of Jay Carney

  • Ghee!

    Carney had an opportunity to salvage his post politics career with at least a smidgen of respect (Stephanopolous) within his liberal counterparts confines. Now that he is riding the train right off the cliff with the administration, his career has devolved into being too poisonous for public consumption (except for msnbc of course).

    • Ariadnea

      Jay Carney and many in Obama’s administration were trained by Russia’s propaganda experts.

      • Andrew Curlutu

        Given the sort of stuff Carney had strewn all over his house in the picture that were taken, that’s not exactly a shock. I suspect he has several vintage back issues of Pravda he refers to for tips on how to spin things like an overworked Maytag for his boss, Dear Commissar.

        • neoface

          I love the analogy, “overworked Maytag”. LOL!!!

    • Jerome Goolsby

      Not to worry – he’s likely got a job waiting for him at the Moonbat Screamers National Broadcasting Channel (MSNBC).

    • neoface

      Or like retired CIA deputy director Michael Morell working for Hillary’s privately owned intelligent advisory board.

  • Old_Cali_Dude

    Carney is the Liar-In Chief’s principle mouthpiece. And like his boss when confronted with irrefutable facts can do nothing but sputter and claim victim status. The whole Benghazi mess will haunt these people because as more comes out the more it is apparent that the only concern was the re=election campaign. Open questions – Who authorized blaming the video? Why was the filmmaker frog marched to jail on TV. Why was the Sec State and President both blaming the video days later when it was known by them to be a complete falsehood. Where were Hillary and Barack since neither was keeping tabs on this in live time for the duration. And why has it been OK w/ the MSM that the president left the next morning to fundraise and campaign in Vegas.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      “Who authorized blaming the video? ”

      “Amid growing tensions over White House documents on Benghazi, Sen.
      John McCain had some choice words Thursday for Deputy National Security
      Adviser Ben Rhodes, calling him a “political hack.”

      Slamming the handling of the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate, the Arizona Republican called it an “obvious coverup” as part of President Barack Obama’s reelection….”

      Read more:

      (He’s WAY worse than a political hack, and in the same league as Powers and Sunstein)


      “CBS News President David Rhodes was not involved in editorial
      discussions on Wednesday about whether “CBS Evening News” should cover a
      newly released email written by his brother Ben Rhodes, the White House
      deputy national security adviser, according to a network spokesperson….”

      Uh, yeah, right, David. Neither was O’Mao involved directly. You have underlings for the dirty work.

      O Rhodes Bro’s: Please report to us the penalty for TREASON, …..then report to Leavenworth with your boss ‘n pals.

  • Hotlanta Mike
  • Ghee!

    His childish retort back to Henry showing his true colors was the back breaker. Even the lib media has to see he’s cornered and has nothing left to fight with except the last ditch thing that all libs do and thats name calling.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    What would we have done without Fox News?

    • FreedomRecon

      We’d probably be in concentration camps by now.

      • model1911

        Fox helps, so do various websites. The 2nd Amendment keeps us out of the camps.

        • Suzyqpie

          The democrats will never stop the assault on the 2nd. Their assault comes in waves, but they always come back to the 2nd. NudgeNudge, forward gain an inch, forward, retreat a modicum, NudgeNudge gain another inch…..

          • oneworld65

            Can we divide the country in two parts? One for the democruds and the other for those people that believe in that the rights and interests of the American people come before politics and foreigners?

          • BeautifulAmerica

            This is the classic communist technique for weakening the opposition.

        • David

          Good point. It’s easy to get discouraged, but sites that promote the truth are important to keep us going.

    • Ghee!

      ain’t that the truth?!

    • tonnyb2

      Fox News serves a purpose, but they make stuff up as well.

      The History of Benghazi:

      A month or so after Benghazi, FOXNEWS begins coverage of the Benghazi stand down. “A search of the Nexis database shows that the accusation that these security forces were ordered to “stand down” was made in 85 segments on the network’s primetime shows by Fox hosts, contributors, guests, and in video accompanying news reports and commentary.” Fox news speculated that either Obama or Peneta gave the order.

      May 7 2013: Maj. Robert Firman, a Pentagon spokesman stated that there “was never any kind of stand down order to anybody.”

      May 8 2013: Hicks testifies a stand down order was given and that he got
      that information from Lieutenant Colonel Gibson, confirming Fox News claim. When Hicks was asked where Gibson got that order from Hicks responds that he didn’t know.

      Same day: a Pentagon spokesman further explained that the security forces in Tripoli “were told to stay” in Tripoli to help with the security there.

      On June 12, Gen. Martin Dempsey stated ” They weren’t told to stand down. A stand down means don’t do anything. They were told to — that the mission they were asked to perform was not in Benghazi but was at Tripoli Airport.”

      On June 26, 2013 – The former commander (Gibson) of a four-member Army Special Forces unit in Tripoli, Libya, denied Wednesday that he was told to stand down during last year’s deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

      June 26, 2013 – FOX’S Special Report with Bret Baier reported on Lt. Col. Gibson’s testimony debunking the “stand down” order myth, but never mentioned that the claim was made repeatedly by the network (85 times).

      On June 27, 2013 – from the Slate “But now even Republicans are admitting that a “stand down” order was never given. According to The Associated Press, Gibson told a Republican-led congressional committee on June 26 that he was never ordered to ‘stand down.’ “

      January 14, 2014 – REPUBLICAN CHAIRWOMEN SAYS NO STAND DOWN ORDER WAS EVER GIVEN. from declassified transcripts – FOXNEWS reports “Rep. Martha Roby, the Republican chairwoman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, concluded: It does not appear that U.S. military forces, units, aircrafts, drones, or specific personnel that could have been readily deployed in the course of the attack in Benghazi were unduly held back, or told to stand down, or refused permission to enter the fight. Rather, we were so badly postured, they could not have made a difference or we were desperately needed elsewhere.”

      So you can’t take everything FOXNEWS say as the truth. You have to stay vigilant.

        ID source, or you made it all up. You know the rules– or you SHOULD.

        • FreedomRecon

          Considering for 2 days now he has been here asking for links.

          • tonnyb2

            I have been asking for links (hoping for the courtesy) but not depending on them.

          • FreedomRecon

            I know, but expect to link your own material as well if you want us to.

        • Onyx

          Sorry, which part do you need a link for? Are you claiming that there *was* a stand down order? Or that Fox News didn’t talk extensively about there being one?

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            As in, where did he cut-and-paste this from, without attribution, while meanwhile elsewhere in the thread, at 2:46 ET, he asks for a link.

        • tonnyb2

          This links are very easy to find. Two of the most important ones are from FOXNEWS?

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Elsewhere in the thread, at 2:46 ET, you asked a poster for a link, Clownie. Y’know, like one we can click on, or a video we can watch. Same rules.

          • tonnyb2

            Each one is from a different source. Which one(s) would you like a link for?

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            All of the above.

          • tonnyb2

            Ok. Clownie. Give me a moment.

          • tonnyb2

            “A search of the Nexis database shows that the accusation that these security forces were ordered to “stand down” was made in 85 segments on the network’s primetime shows by Fox hosts, contributors, guests, and in video accompanying news reports and commentary.” Fox news speculated that either Obama or Peneta gave the order.

            It will be a trickle. But i’ll to get it all within the next 2 hours.

          • FreedomRecon

            You do realize that mediamatters link is sourcing pundits and not the news part right?

          • tonnyb2

            Check the link.

          • FreedomRecon

            I did, you stated fox NEWS said it 85 times…when in reality you included pundits in that figure.

          • tonnyb2

            Ok. Scatch Foxnews. My comment “85 segments on the network’s primetime shows by Fox hosts, contributors, guests, and in video accompanying news reports and commentary.” Fox news speculated that either Obama or Peneta gave the order.”

            I shoud have said, Fox network’s primetime shows.

            My point was to underscore the Fox effect on its viewers.

          • FreedomRecon

            Most fox viewers note the difference between the commentators and the news portion of the channel. So there really is no “Fox effect” on it’s viewers.

          • tonnyb2

            I didn’t realize that. So many conservatives were so certain their was a stand down order. Who perpetuated the stand down order meme? Was it Fox News or the commentators? I am going to dig a little deeper.

          • FreedomRecon

            As I have never said there was a stand down order, nor do I know anyone who has said that, I honestly can’t tell you or help you with that….sorry.

          • tonnyb2

            Perhaps you can clarify this for me. Wikipedia lists Jennifer Griffin (born 1969) is a Fox News correspondent. Does that make her part of the news reporting or commentary?

          • FreedomRecon

            Yes, Jennifer Griffin is an actual reporter for Fox News…the news part.

          • FreedomRecon

            Also you should note that tonight, on Bret Baier’s show, he had a guest who is the former NSC spokesperson for Obama claiming Benghazi was the result of the video. This is almost 2 years later…..almost 2 years that we have known this was a terrorist attack.

          • tonnyb2

            Video vs. Terrorism. They are not mutually exclusive.

            I don’t know if he is correct or not. Whether the attack was instigated by the video or not, it is still consider a terrorist attack according to international definition of “terrorism” or “act of terrorism.”

          • FreedomRecon

            No, they said the video sparked a “spontaneous demonstration”. They have said that repeatedly.

          • tonnyb2

            I’ll have to see the video and I’ll comment. Family obligations for now but I’ll be back in 2-3 hours.

          • FreedomRecon

            I can’t believe that you have never heard this admin blame the video for spontaneous demonstrations…see Susan Rice’s Sunday tour, for one. And regardless of which news organization said what….the fact remains, this admin lied to us, they have covered it up. It is wrong. I’m not suggesting that those 4 men wouldn’t have died if the admin had said or done anything differently…but they lied…and then tried to cover up the details of everything involved with Benghazi. That is the focus here.

          • BeautifulAmerica

            Of course he heard of it. The chicken$#!t ran away. Asking his Obot boss for help.

          • tonnyb2

            I here. I’m here to stay stay stay!

          • BeautifulAmerica

            Just go a-way,way,way back to O’Mao-ville.

          • tonnyb2

            Sounds catchy. May be we could write a song together.

          • FreedomRecon

            And they don’t want to focus on they lied to get through an election…which is a friggin scandal! They want to focus on foxnews said this, and foxnews said that…..Regardless of who said what…they did it!

          • tonnyb2

            I’ll focus on whatever is pertinent. Lets put that (fox News) aside. And lets stop with the they.

          • FreedomRecon

            You don’t think it’s pertinent that they lied about this to deflect any blame on Obama and his failed foreign policy to get through an election?

          • tonnyb2

            I don’t see the lie. What lie?

          • FreedomRecon

            LOL omg…okay…You have threads and threads of the lie and the email I linked to you the other day. Now I think you are just being obtuse. I will have a rational discussion with anyone even when I disagree with them, but this has become an irrational discussion with “what lie”. have a good night, sir.

          • tonnyb2

            Look. I don’t see the lie. I am not trying to be obtuse. I went through the links, I don’t see the lie. If you are interested I will go through this with you point by point.

          • tonnyb2

            Come on. Lets have that rational discussion? Lets take the facts establish by the links you gave me. and go point by point. Are you up to it?

          • tonnyb2

            The idea started with the CIA. There analyst saw evidence of that early on. They put it in the talking points prior to Susan’s Sunday appearance.


            I saw part of the interview, but I am looking for the whole thing.

            Anybody have a ….

          • FreedomRecon

            Who’s in charge of the CIA?

          • tonnyb2

            I see. So you think the White House told the CIA to lie? So is that “fact” assumed or is there any data to support it?

            Now I can understand why you think the White House lied. If the CIA was doing the President’s bidding then much of the counter argument (not a lie) falls apart.

            I don’t know that that happened. I have no data to confirm that. Have you seen this?

            You believe its all bullshit.

          • FreedomRecon

            The President is in charge of the CIA, the State Dept…..all the departments. When there is an attack….if he wasn’t involved in the decision making progress, then wouldn’t that make him quite inept as a Commander in Chief? The latest email released, the Rhodes email, quite specifically says to emphasize the video, and push any notion aside that this was failed foreign policy. So he either lied, or he was inept, you choose one. Luckily this is a free country and you can still choose to believe the facts or not. Again I will say goodnight sir, as this is the last I will post on this thread, as we see things differently, and you trust government more than I do.

          • tonnyb2

            Good night.

            I trust people more than you do. I trust the analyst at the CIA produced a report based upon whatever intel they had.

            “if he wasn’t involved in the decision making progress”

            What decision making process are you talking about? You believe the President should be telling analyst what to write? You believed the President (or his people) told the CIA what to put in the talking point memo requested by members of Congress?

            The way I see it there were 2 document produced. One that began with CIA, and the other with the White House.

            The email (sharyl’s smoking gun), produced by the White House, is about the general unrest caused by the video. If you read the email, on its face that is what it is about. It has nothing about Benghazi. The way I read it, it’s focus is on “protests” not “Benghazi protest.” The number one story on September 11th 2012 was the protests outside numerous embassies in the middle east sparked by the video. Next came the attack on the US embassy in Egypt. Later came the attack in Benghazi.

            The second document, initiated by the CIA at the request of Congress, was focused on the Benghazi incident.

            I accept your determination that I trust the government more than you do. In fact, this is less about trust for me then it is a personal rule, that is, not to make an assertion of such magnitude without proof.

          • tonnyb2

            For some reason I can see the whole thread?

          • lukuj

            The man was interviewed in hopes of being fair and balanced and allowing the audience to decide who they believe. The guest did his cause no favors.

          • FreedomRecon

            “”The 85 relevant mentions do not include the June 26 Special Reportsegment on Lt. Col. Gibson’s testimony. The shows covered by this Nexis search include The Five, Special Report with Bret Baier, The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity, and On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” Only one of these is a news source…Bret Baier…the rest are commentary.”

            Only one of these, Bret Baier is actually a news source…the rest are commentators. So if you would like to say that Bret Baier said it 85 times, I would like proof of that please.

            In this case my point is that some people trust Fox News and are suspicious of other media. I posted this in response to

            He is so certain that Fox News is right. They might be wrong.

            You guys seem reasonable as well. Hank, realguy, freedom. I am looking for the facts as much as they are ascertainable.

            FYI, I don’t believe in the stereotypes usually ascribe to conservatives. I try to dispel them on the liberal blogs and here.

          • tonnyb2

            FYI, I don’t trust any cable news network (CNN, MCNBC, Fox) and much of the media. In my opinion, they are largely motivated by profits, and often spin in order raise their neilsens rating and profits.

          • brotherStefan

            And yet you don’t think the administration would be motivated in the least to want to deflect possible criticism about the Benghazi debacle — to create a distraction from an obvious tactical blunder? Why was the ambassador in Benghazi at this time in the first place?

          • tonnyb2

            “would be motivated in the least to want to deflect possible criticism about the Benghazi debacle”

            It’s a possibility. For me however, it is a personal rule not to make an assertion of such magnitude without proof.

            I don’t know if I would call it a tactical ‘blunder.’ They were operating in a lawless state, a virtual war zone, with heavily armed citizen militias not under the command of a central government.

            I’ve read a fair amount of the transcripts. Stevens was considered to be an expert on Libya and on threat assessment and security.

            … his prominent stature made Washington unusually deferential to him on security and policy matters. … “But Stevens’ status as an expert on Libya, and Benghazi in particular, the report stated, “caused Washington to give unusual deference to his judgments.

            The ambassador insisted on being there and was responsible for security. On two occasion in the weeks prior to the attack he was offered more security by General Ham, but he refused it. I don’t know why he was there, but some reports suggests the only reason was that the CIA was funneling weapons to Syria. So why did it really happen, Benghazi? It may be many years before we really know. We may never know.

      Better yet, why did Obama give a speech in front of the UN that the video was to blame more than 2 weeks after the attack? Here is the link for the ones who still have questions regarding a cover up.

      • Onyx

        “A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.” That is, in fact, what happened. Which part of what he said do you disagree with?

        • FreedomRecon

          He is addressing the attack in Benghazi which was a terrorist attack according to their own people. But still touting a video.

          • tonnyb2

            Not according to the Video. You inserted that yourself. You would make Sharyl proud!

            He was addressing the 15 cities in the middle east that saw protestors gather outside our facilities (embassies).

          • FreedomRecon

            Throughout the speech he was addressing the embassy attack. That clip above is rather generalizing. So here is the transcript of the speech. Note this sentence. “There are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. There is no video that justifies an attack on an Embassy.” You all know that they repeatedly blamed the video and are trying to defend it now. It won’t work. The truth is coming out.


            When you edit a post as you did above for more than just a spelling error, please notate that in the future, if you don’t mind. Most of us do.

          • Elizabeth

            Stop with the video already. It’s debunked. It’s BS. It was a lie then and it’s a lie now. Just stop.

          • FreedomRecon

            Edit original post much? LOL

        • almarquardt

          The “outrage” came after this administration brought attention to the video which came after the attacks, not before or during. The video above showcases how Obama and his administration continued to push the lie that it was an obscure Youtube video’s fault (as if people aren’t responsible for their own actions, but I digress) when evidence showed by then that it was not.

          • Onyx

            The protest in Cairo occurred before the Benghazi attack and before the administration “brought attention” to the video. It was aired on Egyptian television days earlier.

          • badbadlibs

            The video was aired on Egyptian television?

          • Onyx

            A scene from the trailer was aired on Al-Nas on 9/9/2012.

          • badbadlibs

            You liberals have to be forced to tell the exact narrative. Sugar coating to paint your ideology as anything but a vehicle of lies is part and parcel of that ideology.

        • badbadlibs

          Do you understand the relevance of a time line??????????

      • badbadlibs

        And why did he and killary klinton make a PBA for “Pokistan” (everyone else but muslims pronounce it as Pakistan) telling them it was a video and they were “just outraged, I tell ya…..just outraged”?

        • Suzyqpie

          There are no consequences for “outraging” SoS Clinton or Pres 0bama. BTW, Pres 0bama pronounces it as Paaakeeestaaan.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        Good work, but you’re feeding the not-so-innocent troll.
        let him do his own hunting for truth, as we have done.

    • tonnyb2

      Please clarify?

      • QueenB

        Carney said the email was not about Benghazi specifically, but about the broader ME. But for some odd reason, all the administration officials talking about Benghazi specifically, was using the talking points in the email that is supposedly, not about Benghazi, specifically.

      • fatheromallley

        Wow. Go to the Blaze and you’ll find all the info you need about the lies from the White House, dates, time and everything else. Don’t ask me for a link, find it yourself. The CIA never said it was a video. Look at Congressional hearings too. Did you watch yesterdays? If you don’t, you’re just another shill thinking he’s smart, when in fact you obfuscate and deflect like all the other lefties.

    • Hannibal

      Maybe because Carney was cc’d on the e-mail?

      • Ragnar__Danneskjold

        Neat theory, but the email was sent two days after Carney made the Benghazi statements in the press room.

  • waterytart

    Ed’s response to Carney’s kindergarten jab about his “boss” should have been, “WTH does my wife have to do with this?!”

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Henry: If the email was not about Benghazi, as you said yesterday and say again today, why did the White House turn it over to a conservative group seeking information about Benghazi?”

    Because maybe the WH Counsel’s office said, “Better to err on the side of irrelevance and make ’em wade through a whole bunch of stuff and maybe they give up in disgust when they don’t find the ‘OK, we did it, we confess’ e-mail worded quite that way– or give up well before they possibly DO find one to their liking? Remember what happened to Nixon when HE didn’t want to turn stuff over? Do we REALLY want to conjure up the most-touchy-about-criticism-since-Nixon meme again, folks?”

  • DG

    It was not about a video, Carney! Quit pushing that lie! The lie has officially been proven a lie, no matter how many times you repeat it!

    More and more journalists are asking harder and harder questions, and Carney wants to talk about the ‘Evil Faux’ news station, conspiracy theories by ‘evil Republicans and Faux news’ and a stupid video.

    The House of Cards is crumbling in the wake of the e-mail release about Benghazi. It’s about time.

    • BeautifulAmerica


  • CLEmom

    In a previous hearing, Mike Morell–from the CIA-specifically stated, under oath, that the CIA had nothing to do with the Benghazi video talking point. NOTHING.

    Perhaps someone should show Carney this testimony…he’s obviously confused, as he keeps repeating the lie that the CIA came up with the talking points.

  • Rob

    If Carney was really so ignorant and ill prepared that he must refer all hard questions to some other source like the State Department, why didn’t he just concede at the outset that he is too incompetent to be holding the press conference in the first place, and save everyone else a lot of time and expectation? As opposed to acting like a condescending turd and blaming the reporter who asked him questions he should have been able to answer.

    • Andrew Curlutu

      What, you are under the impression that Dear Commissar requires competence from his minions? No, he simply requires slavish devotion that borders on a cult following. As a backup, I’m sure the fine folks at the NSA have lots of dirt on O’Bolshevik’s stooges to discourage them from doing anything “stupid” should their conscience suddenly wake up from its coma.

  • Russ

    David Burge’s (@iowahawkblog) tweets today poking fun at Jay have been priceless.

  • AT

    Jay Carney is having a bad day.

    Every day should be like that for him.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Please don’t disrupt Carney’s perfect life with a perfect wife and two kids with a perfect Photoshopped home library with 6 copies of each book.

    • Kakarot

      Don’t forget that some of those books have their own private finger to help you keep your place.

      • Maryland_Malcontent

        I thought the photoshopper was giving carney the finger…

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Perfect wife? I have the feeling that your post was dripping with sarcasm but, still, bleh.

      So in the liberal utopia the wife is supposed to be mannish (“virago” to class this up) and the husband is supposed to be a slightly more masculine Pajama Boy? Bleh.

    • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

      Anybody else think that all of them in the picture are from a casting company? White house internal memo: “Taking auditions for Carney’s wife & kids. Applicants will be screened by Carney and his husband.”

  • Hank_Scorpio

    I wonder if Carney goes home after these BS sessions and takes a Silkwood shower….

    • badbadlibs

      He sits and stares at his USSR propaganda posters until the feeling passes and he gains more power to BS.

      • Hank_Scorpio

        If I had to peddle BS like that on camera I’d develop a drinking problem to cope. $10 says that in 5 years Carney’s in rehab…..

        • badbadlibs

          He should be doing his rehab in prison.

          • Hank_Scorpio

            A prison in North Korea….

        • ToyZebra

          And ulcers. He needs some gastric ulcers. Keep that stomach churning.

        • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

          Or shuffling around like Ozzy Osborne, mumbling to himself.

        • Andrew Curlutu

          Well, I DO know that the Secret Service in some cases to taking to the bottle, to the point that one got found passed out drunk in a hotel in a major embarrassment to that proud department. Then again, if you were working to protect a black Marxist who probably hates your guts if you are white and doesn’t bother to hide the fact, wouldn’t YOU probably want to get blotto to dull the pain?

  • discus_it

    Carney says the email was in reference to a briefing for Rice about the unrest in the area, not Benghazi (at 4PM the day before the Benghazi press appearances). Okay, so let’s see the emails that are about the briefing regarding Benghazi (which must have been about the same time…).

    • discus_it

      I’m willing to bet there’s a calendar entry for Rice which says:
      Sat 4PM – Benghazi briefing

  • David

    To your boss’s disappointment Jay Carney you are having difficulty maintaining your composure as you spew your lies. obama has set the tone of appearing comfortable while lying. Get with the program Carney.

  • submandave

    “[Y]ou can just read [the email] and then decide for yourself.”

    Ummmm, that’s what we did, and we decided you’re a lying POS, protecting the lying POSes that you work for.

  • Mark_Melrose

    Carney’s Faux News canard has lost it’s “sell by” date. The posse is moving in on the bad guys.

    • Andrew Curlutu

      Yeah, well, unfortunately, so has the bread I often have to eat from the food pantry because there is no work available in not-so-sunny Little Chicago, directly do to failed Commiecrat/RINO axis policies. It’s what their mindset often accomplishes, wish the voters didn’t have the selfish “It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t concern ME” attitude so strongly, then the poor abused taxpayers might have been spared some of this resultant mess. Sigh.

  • Suzyqpie

    I’ve read all of the comments, Twitchy is the recipient of the new and improved High Quality Troll, aka, control the message before the message gets out of WH hands.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    This Administration will never just do the right thing and tell the truth about Benghazi. The lies were started to protect Obama’s chances of winning a second term. Now that he’s on his way out, the lies will continue in order to protect Hillary Clinton’s chances for a first term. It is a seriously sad time for my country when the Government will bold face lie to us, even when the facts PROVE they are lying, just to make sure their party keeps control of the White House. Solid proof this Administration doesn’t give a rat’s (_)_) about Americans, and most certainly never cared about four murdered Americans.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Seriously, I haven’t expected honesty from elected officials since before I lost my virginity. Still, nobody respects a clumsy crook and that’s all we seem to be getting these days. Where are the smooth operators that we were told never got caught? Are we doomed to settle for third best?

      • Andrew Curlutu

        I suspect they all left Washington for greener climes after the Clinton decadence. They, as you will remember, had Vernon Jordan, another black man used by the Commiecrat/RINO axis to protect them as a sort of Mr. Fixit. It is said that when he got all dressed up, he looked like a getaway car.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    This administration is so pathetic. I saw on tv earlier that Politico did a poll with the White House Press Corps about which administration was more forth coming with information, Bush or Obama, and only 4% said Obama. 41% said Bush. 40% gave no answer. And the rest said “about the same.”

    Attacking Fox News because he can’t handle the questions is proof that this administration is so full of crap that they can’t handle anything harder than “How much did Obama enjoy his ice cream and how well did he sleep?”

  • AmericanMom

    Carney is Barry’s stooge. Barry won’t answer the most simple of questions – he leaves it to Jay to make an ass of himself, thus preserving the crease in his own pants and the stain of his never-called-to-question dishonesty intact.

  • oneworld65

    With all the scandals now, is there any reason why this SOB can’t be impeached? And include all of his adminstration?

    • Andrew Curlutu

      Yeah…that reason would be the Senate, currently under the noxious control of the Commiecrat/RINO alliance. Until when (and if) the Republicans get their shit together, discover some testicular fortitude, and manage to avoid snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by getting an ironclad majority in the House and Senate, Dear Commissar ain’t going nowhere. Unless, of course, like in the account of Korah, a large fissure open in the earth and swallows him AND his entire rotten entitlement family whole in the interim. One an always hope.

  • MNWoman

    You know in tv shows or movies when there is a really awkward situation? i am usually the type to cover my eyes or look away…I just can’t deal with them.

    This awkwardness was great. This administration has gotten away with so much BS it is time Carney feels the pressure.

    He really did talk a lot wihtout saying much at all. Did he even understand or follow what the heck he was talking about?
