Carney Blames Romney for
Politicizing Benghazi

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/10/2013 9:49:16 PM

Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney blamed Mitt Romney and Republicans for “politicizing” the Benghazi terrorist attacks. Harkening back to a Mitt Romney press conference on September 12, 2012, which addressed the Benghazi attacks only in passing while focusing instead on the assault on the American embassy in Cairo, Egypt, Carney suggested that Romney had tried to target the innocent Obama administration for telling the truth about Benghazi. “Republicans, again, in this ongoing effort that began in the hours after the attack when Mitt Romney put out a press release to try to take political

Comments:
Carney was backed into a corner and had to revert back to his usual default, blame Romney, Bush, Republicans, etc. etc. Even the usually blind and dumb MSM didn´t buy that today. It was delightful to see him squirm. I bet he went home and had a few drinks after the day he had.

Possibly, just possibly, the tipping point has been reached. The White house might be behind the curve thinking they can still get by with blatant lies. What has been so obvious to us, so insulting to our intelligence, is now affecting the MSM. FINALLY!!!

I am being deadly serious. This day will turn out to be the litmus test as to whether the Republic survives. The blatant lies, the corruption, the greed, the criminal acts, the manslaughter and the treason are plain and for all to see. if nothing is done, we are a dead country. It is up to us to purge our Nation of this cancer.

This was all started by Calvin Coolidge - - a REPUBLICAN, you know. If it weren´t for Coolidge, there´d be 100% bipartisanship today.

0bama is merely trying to heal the rift caused by Coolidge - - which has been festering for over 80 years. But of course, the REPUBLICANS are trying to stymie his heroic efforts at every turn.

[How´d I do? Do you think I can replace Carney Barker - -after he´s looking up at the bus´ chassis?]

the reporters just have to have their ears perk up at such a pathetic explanation -

Re: #13 - Not to be in the least disparaging but the comment "if nothing is done" implies there is a group or force somewhere and their actions or inactions will save or lose our republic as we know and love it. I understand such a group would ostensibly be our elected officials and a free press, those whose allegiance to the Constitution is paramount. Unfortunately, that group is at the heart of the problem, save an increasingly insignificant few. Can you trust a single democrat to hold to their oath of office?

I say the common citizens are the only potential force that can preserve our Constitution; in essence, we are busy waiting on ourselves to act. If our country is going down the tubes, it will be because of tens of millions of passive observers. I don´t intend to be counted among them.

I must have been watching a different FOX network. My recollection was that during the debate (I think the 3rd), Romney barely even tiptoed around Benghazi much to our disgust, and there was a strong feeling that cost him the election.

I´m no Carney fan, but he has a horrible job. To stand up before cameras daily and lie on behalf of your boss is a terrible way to make a living. Today I believe his instructions were to calmly answer the questions without getting heated, and he did just that.

Well, since some of the news today was that Carney had a hand in the editing of the ´facts´ of the Benghazi scandal, no wonder the little weasel is a bit high strung and blaming Romney today. Way I see it, Romney didn´t pound Benghazi hard enough during the campaign.

Combine this with the fact that he thinks he can throw the CIA under the bus for what he and the WH did, he and we can look forward to an interesting week come Monday. Can´t wait for Coburn´s surprise next week.

Wish I had stock in antacid right now. I bet there is a lot being consumed right now.

Well, since you´re no Carney fan, #25, you must realize that the lying little punk is not forced to stay in such a "horrible job" but could actually resign and do the work of a real man, which he clearly is not. And as far as following his instructions and calmly lying through his teeth, I don´t see that as some kind of admirable quality. The little preppie filth wouldn´t last a day in an honest occupation.

Character counts Jay Carney--this is May 2013 with new revelations that have finally surfaced...your lofo, infantile excuses do not address the genuine concerns of the people, nor are they deserving of our fighting men & women.

Are you and your cohorts going to drag this country´s reputation down just to stay in power? Or will you and your boss do the honorable thing in this significant moment in our history and resign?

Poor little lying Jay. It was entertaining to watch him squirm and lie as he was called to account and hammered by the press corp. He lies for his boss and knows his boss is a liar. Many, if not most, on the staff and reelection campaign low life are not familiar with truth.

Obama has convinced them all that the American people are all so stupid he can do anything he wants, say anything, with impunity.

Perhaps, just perhaps, Obama´s lying ways are finally catching up with him.

Nixon was not corrupt, as 14 alleges. To compare Obamaa to Nixon is mind boggling and playinto the hands of the Democrats. Whether he ordered the break in at Dem headquarters or did not know of it it´s still very small potatoes. They broke in, were there for a few minutes, they were detected almost immediately, nothing was stolen, no one was killed or injured. For this, G. Gordon Liddy served eight years? Though he was a first time offender? No, it was because he would not talk.

Carney has sold his soul like so many people around the Obama´s. I have never seen such a craven evil bunch of people in my life. You can´t play nice with this crowd. Romney should have stood his ground on Banghazi and hammered Obama. The left knows that there is little courage in the Republican Party and if they push back at all, the Republicans will cave. Benghazi was potentially damaging to Obama so they played the "how dare you" card and it worked.

Well stated #39. Nixon not only loved his country and its founding principles, he served our/his country in the U.S. Navy. He left the Navy after WWII as a Lt. Commander.

Quite an accomplishment for a Quaker! He never saw combat which makes no difference - he served his country. I´m quite familiar with the Quaker church as most of my in-laws are Quakers and all of the boys served in various branches of the military in non-combat positions. Many Quakers serve their country in non-combat positions, because they believe their country is worthy and believe God played a hand in our founding.

Whenever I see the ad for Wounded Warriors my heart fills with sadness. When I see the display of lies, cover ups, the disregard for truth, honor, responsibility I hang my head with sorrow. Men and women come home with such severe wounds and then witness such disgraceful behavior.I think the Benghazi issue is the center topic.

"...since Nixon"?? Seriously?? To mention the name of President Nixon in the same sentence as obama, is absurd. Nixon was a Patriot who loved this country. I agree with #27, #31, #37, #39, and #44. IMO, obama is totally lacking in any intellectual honesty/judgment, and has the most corrupt/dangerous pack of leftist-anti-American-minions in the highest offices of his "administration" in history. The detestable-lying-mental-midget jay carney is one more cog in the wheel of the "dear-leader".

L.dotters, this it the root of the Benghazi protest. They were succeeding in the attack on Romney as unpatriotic and decided to expand it to Benghazi as well. Below is Romney´s statement:

We have confidence in our cause in America. We respect our Constitution. We stand for the principles our Constitution protects. We encourage other nations to understand and respect the principles of our Constitution, because we recognize that these principles are the ultimate source of freedom for individuals around the world.

I also believe the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt, instead of condemning their actions. It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
