    This was a huge surprise.

    Did anyone see this coming?

    I try to keep up with the news, but I didn't see a hint of this.

    I think it takes a special kind of person to be able to do that job, and an even more special kind of person to want to take that on. I don't find it surprising at all. There only so much of that a person can take.

    Well, I'm holding out that he left because he saw the writing on the wall for this admin. Sure it took some time, but maybe, just maybe, he'd had enough of it. Lying that is. Even devout progressives can get to a point where they say.. "Umm, gee...I'm not sure I can go out there and say that to the American media"..

    Here's hoping Carney has a modicum of integrity and it was his decision riddled finally with enormous guilt.

    Wherever Carney ends up he will be well paid.

    I know someone perfect for the job, and I here he's available too.

    Re: Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney Resigns

    Damn it, I'm always ****ing late to the party.

    Obama announced the selection of Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest as his choice to be the next press secretary

    TIME - Breaking News, Analysis, Politics, Blogs, News Photos, Video, Tech Reviews

    I would have excelled at that role.

    “As you know, his name describes his demeanor,” Obama said of his new press secretary. “Josh is an earnest guy, and you can’t find just a nicer individual, even outside of Washington.”

    I'll bet I'm nicer.

    I doubt Ari Fleischer will come out of retirement, he made good money after leaving the BushII leagues. He was Mark McGwire's press consultant after Mark admitted to steroid use, and worked briefly for Tiger Woods after that mess. (spokesman and consultant for men knee deep in their own poo, I detect a trend and skill set there)

    He is credited with inventing the term 'homicidal bomber' to replace suicide bomber- is that obfuscating enough for ya???

    He rolled over on Scooter Libby and claimed Scooter told him 'weeks' before the time Libby says a reporter told him about Plame being CIA (in a claim that Valerie sent her husband to look for a papertrail on yellowcake leaving Niger). So wouldn't you want a narc in the Obama White House?

    Perhaps Scott McClellan is more to your liking, his book on the White House during the Iraq war is full of double talk and shoulder shrugging- a perfect muddle mouth man. He says the White House didn't deliberately use out and out deception but instead used "political propaganda campaign"... WTF? He says BushII used self deception and was in constant campaign mode rather than making the best choices...

    Or how about Tony Snow...guest host for Oxcy Rush, O'Really and Fox 'news' show host... due to Josh Bolton demanding everyone sign on for the duration or go, Snow's tenure was short and cancer soon claimed him at age 52 IIRC... but he did the dance of a faltering Bush Administration amazingly well.
