From link in header RE: Carney's bald faced lies

"The documents, first reported by THE WEEKLY STANDARD in articles here and here, directly contradict claims by White House press secretary Jay Carney and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the revisions of those talking points were driven by the intelligence community and show heavy input from top Obama administration officials, particularly those at the State Department.

Now that Obama’s White House is immersed in massive scandals they are trapped. Whatever move they make the public will start reading their rights: “anything you say and do can and will be used against you in a court of low information voter law.”

They have briefings every day.

Freepers just started posting live threads to the briefings because it’s interesting to watch Jay Carney try and spin his way out of so many lies.

It is almost too painful to watch.

The press briefings usually are not worth a bucket of warm spit. In the past few days FReepers are paying some attention. We’ve actually seen some signs of sentient life in the WH Press Corpse.

They have briefings every day.

Dunno why, but I initially read this as "barfings" instead of "briefings". Maybe my eyes were interpreting for me?

It takes longer and longer to make the talking points weave together with past talking points, which in turn had to weave together with past lies.

If you take the glasses off Carney, add the right makeup and the right dark wig Carney would look a lot like Cher. This may be helpful to him when he seeks new employment soon. Because as we all know, nobody ever expects a Spanish or IRS inquisition and there will never be enough Cher impersonators.

I hope to see Carney as Cher soon on the Vegas strip.

Soon...
