    In this instance, Carney was trying to defend the indefensible. He was constantly trying to defend the president and this administration who have been caught in lies by their own words. From shovel ready jobs to "if you like your healthcare you can keep it" to Benghazi was all about an unknown video about Muhammad to he wasn't aware of Fast and Furious till he read it in the newspaper or the other countless times Obama came to the microphones claiming to be the know nothing president, the latest being over the VA. Now he claims he wasn't aware of the fake lists till he read about it in the news. No one can defend this kind of crap successfully, it's undefensible.

    Fleischer basically rebuked the First Amendment. But keep pretending your team is saintly.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Your deflection to Ari Fleischer isn't working. What's wrong, you find what this administration has done indefensible too and find it hard to defend? Why else would you be bringing up Ari Fleischer, the press secretary for Bush the first 2 years of his presidency well over a decade ago? Now that shows real desperation on your part. This weasel Carney has allowed himself to be used to attempt cover ups of falsehoods over and over again for 6 years defending the lies.

    My point is, so did Fleischer, Perino, Snow, McClellan, Myers, Stephanopolous, et al. Press secretaries are ass-coverers by nature.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    That's basically what the whole job is about.

    I watch the McLaughlin Group religiously, and very much enjoy the sparring that that goes on between the lefties versus the righties! The current hot topic is climate change - since Obama has decided that is his next crusade - and even though facts are presented, including polls taken, the lefties will not change their minds about their perceived doomsday if Al Gore, and others who stand to make new fortunes, are not listened to!. They're treating theory as fact!

    My solution? When China gets their air cleaned as good as ours already is, then we can have a discussion about how much our utility bills are going to soar because of this scam! It will be a good first test for the new White House press secretary, poor guy!

    Greetings, Vesper.

    Exactly, that's their job description. It's a hard presser job and I'm not surprised the Press Secretary's don't last very long in that job.
