    It's not about Carney's job or what press sec's are there to do, as much as his snarky mistreatment of reporters that would ask tough questions.

    I'd have to agree. Also in the news, China and Russia are working on a deal or have concluded a deal for China to purchase large amounts of natural gas from Russia, so maybe they'll be converting over from their sulfur rich, dirty coal? That'd help their air pollution troubles much.

    I've heard that these regulations could hike everyone's electric bills by 80% (that's probably a bit high but even still, quite alarming). Yet another Obama wooden stake into the heart of the recovery! And people question me when I assert that the recovery we have is in spite of Obama's economic and regulatory policies? Pulleeze!
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Yes all the new regulations Obama's folks at the EPA are rolling out are going to have a huge adverse effect on our economy no doubt about it. But when it comes to Carney, it's the administration that he defends that makes him such a weasel. Carney has been part of this administration since 2008. He first started out as the Director of Communications for Joe Biden. Can you imagine trying to smooth over all the gaffes of that man? It's probably because of his experience with Biden that he was picked by this administration for the job of press secretary. Before Carney there was Gibbs. Remember how he would go out there and sell Obamacare as the greatest thing since sliced bread? Now you see him on talk shows shaking his head in disbelief over the failed rollout of Obamacare and no one being held accountable. I find that rather laughable because no one in this administration is held accountable for anything starting at the very top.

    Gibbs has also expressed concern over Hillary not being able to distance herself from Obama or her husband's presidency.

    Being that we are talking about Jay Carney I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up at the next press briefing and chastised the reporters for believing the false narrative that he had resigned.

    Jay Carney is leaving his post behind the podium.





    Good riddance!
    I second that sentiment...good riddance!

    I think they should give the job to Joe Biden. Nobody will miss him in the VP slot and his gaffes will be hilarious.

    It's likely he was fired. It's just that these days......instead of outright firing....you are convinced in very stark terms to resign.

    Any evidence at all for this being "likely"?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
