Carney: Obama Is "Running On His Record"
RCP Video ^ | 7-27-2012

Posted on 07/27/2012 11:29:23 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

Reporter: My question is, is [President Obama] running on the Clinton economy or the Obama economy?

Carney: He is running on his record. He is running on a vision for the future and an economic plan that has as one component a fundamental principle that everyone ought to play by the same set of rules and everybody ought to get a fair shot and everyone ought to pay their fair share. .....

Reporter: With unemployment over 8%, GDP slowing down now, the worst in a year, you'd rather talk about those years than...

Carney: We're not talking... We're talking about an economic policy. His plan, which we talk about all the time, which involves a balanced approach, including the expiration of the high-end Bush tax cuts. And as a rebuttal to the assertions from Republicans that this is terrible economic policy, he points to the facts, which are that, are that under President Clinton, marginal rates at that level were in place when we saw this substantial economic growth and job creation. .....

Carney didn't want to talk about the bad economic numbers, he carefully said the important thing is Obama's policy, and claimed Obama's plan worked. Because when you examine what Obama wanted and what Carney said, they want 'everyone pay their fair share'.

This is to dispute ABC News Jake Tapper;s view that Obama Now Partly Running on Clinton's Record.

“Carney’s got the worst job in the world trying to defend this anal aperture.”

Like his predecessor, he’s probably holding out for that 6 figure job when he leaves.

We're talking about an economic policy.

Socialism didn't work in Russia.
Socialism didn't work in China.
Socialism didn't work in Cuba.
Sociliams didn't work in Greece.
Socialism hasn't worked anywhere.

But, as an economic policy, they believe it to be sound, and they think they can make socialism work next time -- if they just get 4 more years.

Everyone DOES have a fair shot. It's what people MAKE of that shot that counts.

Equal opportunity....NOT......equal outcome.

Carney’s home life must be like that careerbuilder.com commercial they had on the Super Bowl a couple years ago.

The one with the parrot, saying “Can’t take this. Can’t take this. Not another day. Not another day!”. Then you see Carney coming in the door: “Can’t take this. Can’t take this. Not another day. Not another day!”.

Obama’s record is what he says it is, not what it really is.

Carney's responses just get funnier as time goes by.

Black is white!

White is black!

Obama did not say what he just said!

BTW, the official White House website scrubbed Carney's earlier flop, reading as follows:

"See below for a follow up to a question (marked with an asterisk) posed in the briefing.

*The status of Jerusalem is an issue that should be resolved in final status negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. We continue to work with the parties to resolve this issue and others in a way that is just and fair, and respects the rights and aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians."

I would think that Journalists who go to one of these pressers at the White Hut would consider it a bit like going to a comedy club.

The whole thing is a joke.

Jay Carney is a bag of waste.

Carney will surely apologize in short order for his slip of the tongue...he clearly meant to say that Osama's running from his record.

Mr. Carney. No one, even Obama, is stupid enough to run on President Obamas record of failure after failure, lie after lie and total disrespect for America and the principles on which it was founded!

Webster's definition of “record” involves events occurring in the past, while Carney/Obama’s definition involves “plans” for the future.
IOW the Obama record (to those of us out here in fly-over country) is a history of failures, so Carney hopes to bury it.

If owe-bama is running on his record then in baseball parlance, he won’t make it to first base.

""""Carney: He is running on his record"""

Yeah! WE KNOW, that's just the point, idiot.

GEE, FLASH Carney, you don't miss a trick do you? Now you just keep sticking to that record, we'll see ya in Nov.

Carney acts like Oboma has been nowhere near the White House the last three and a half years. He needs six to nine months grace period after reelection to his second term to judge whether his policies are working.

What the H-- ,WE have had a period of three and a half years to judge and his policies are not working, period.
