    • That’s the #1 question I want answered — exactly where he was, who was he with and what was he doing? A 5 PM meeting already on schedule w/Panetta — did he even attend that? Lots of people know the answers — where are the loose lips?

        • I’m wondering if the simple ABSENCE of an order from the Commander in Chief wouldn’t translate to “stand down” when military folks were gearing up under the assumption that they would be ordered to go to the aid of their fellows.

      • Excellent #1 question… (no one in the “WH press corps” has figured out how to ask that!!!??)

        #2: Why was Amb. Rice from the friggin UN sent out? What does she have to do with anything in Libya? (she’s a useless Amb. at the UN in NYC) Why not send out someone from State Dept. like ‘Asst-Sec. for Africa’ (it was an African embassy attacked) or someone from State Dept. ‘security’ (it was there job to have DSO or two with Amb. Stevens)

  1. Ladies and Gentlemen…welcome to DANCING WITH THE PRESS!

    Today Jay Carney will excite you….dazzle you…..confuse you….and make you so angry you will want to demo your house as he shows all sorts of ways to dance around the questions being asked by the MSM and a few people who know what his answer will be.

    And now here is your host KEITH KOFFLER! (round of applause)

  2. Flashback: Washington DC, 9-12-09

    This was quite a message to Obama, as in, you’re no better than Bush. It was the day the tea party became the Obama agenda’s biggest threat. So proud to have been there. Now I feel vindicated for leaving the Dems to support Country Before Party like minds :D

  3. Listening to Carney as he obfuscates, maneuvers, sidesteps, flat out lies even makes one wonder if there is any central core of integrity left within the man.
    He went from a decent reporter to a “Baghdad Bob”, “Tokyo Rose”, “Hanoi Hannah” . What a dismal achievement.

      • There is no video feed from the White House THIRTY minutes after start time. Apparently, Carny has found the same hiding place POTUS uses to avoid being on time.

        • now FORTY-SIX minutes late. “Beginning Shortly” has now been permanently burned into the White House streaming page.

          This could be good. Maybe the White House Press Corpse will finally say “Enough!” and hammer Carny until they get real and COMPLETE answers to questions that need asking.

          • Fifty-six minutes late, “Good afternoon”. Not a word about wasting the time of the journalists.

            It’s like the latest episode of “Mad Men” where Don Draper tells his mistress to wait in the hotel room, naked, don’t answer the phone, and understand that “you are merely a tool for my pleasure”.

            That lady wised up. When will the WH Press Corpse?

  4. I try not to link too much so – there is a good article at National Review Online by Charles Cook, In Praise of Paranoia, and a little back and forth on the use of the word paranoia with Jonah Goldberg and a piece on AOS about this.

    I don’t mean to bring other stuff to Keith’s site, which I consider my home away from home, in any way except to contribute to the national conversation. And boy, doesn’t it feel good to be having a national conversation about something that has been “under wraps” so to speak
    for so long. Hopefully even this little bit of life under Obama’s venerated big government will serve to correct the course we have been on.

  5. Maybe the press office is running late because Jay has to serve lunch to Obama and Biden. Or maybe he’s the food taster?

  6. So much for the press asking the necessary questions, guess the love fest is back on. Media needs firing as much as this administration does.
    Revealing that political motives are only applied to every one but the persons in this administration.

    Biggest lie of all from Carney “Accountability is this president’s biggest concern”

    • Carny Barker just lied again — stating as fact that OkeyDoke called Benghazi an “act of terror” the following day. In what parallel universe could this possibly be seen as anything other than dishonest?

      At what point do people like Obama, Holder and Carny get a resounding vote of “NO CONFIDENCE”?

  7. To hell with Carney !
    Where in the hell is congress ?
    Where in the hell is Boehner ?
    What are these people afraid of ?
    A skinny black man that throws like a girl ?
    An administration ruled by ValJar ?
    Yes, there it is, make no bones about it.
    All of these career politicians are afraid of a slum lord, supported by a cadre of thugs that can ruin their lives.
    Intimidation is the tool that the Obama administration uses.
    Thug tactics Chicago style.
    Boehner needs to go, he’s a puss.
    He should have done something more substantial by now.

    • Bravo, AFVet. The appointment of a select committee to investigate Benghazi is being held up by one person – Boehner. The wimp needs to lead or get out of the way, and take Cantor and McCarthy with him. None of them have a backbone.

  8. Here ya go folks.. H/T to Broadway for the show “Chicago” lyrics –
    (and sorry it it’s a bit long)

    BARACK – (Spoken) (Enters the Press Briefing surrounded by staffers)
    Thank you. Just a moment.
    You ready?

    Jay Carney – (Spoken)
    Oh Barack, I’m really scared.

    BARACK – (Spoken)
    Jay, you got nothing to worry about.
    It’s all a circus, kid. A three ring circus.
    These trials- the whole world- all show business.
    But kid, you’re working with a star, the biggest!

    Give ’em the old razzle dazzle
    Razzle Dazzle ’em
    Give ’em an act with lots of flash in it
    And the reaction will be passionate
    Give ’em the old hocus pocus
    Bead and feather ’em
    How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

    What if your hinges all are rusting?
    What if, in fact, you’re just disgusting?

    Razzle dazzle ’em
    And they;ll never catch wise!

    Give ’em the old Razzle Dazzle

    Razzle dazzle ’em
    Give ’em a show that’s so splendiferous

    Barack –
    Row after row will grow vociferous

    Give ’em the old flim flam flummox
    Fool and fracture ’em

    BARACK –
    How can they hear the truth above the roar?

    Roar, roar, roar!

    Throw ’em a fake and a finagle
    They’ll never know you’re just a bagel,

    BARACK –
    Razzle dazzle ’em
    And they’ll beg you for more!

    Give ’em the old double whammy
    Daze and dizzy ’em
    Back since the days of old Methuselah
    Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-lah

    Give ’em the old three ring circus
    Stun and stagger ’em
    When you’re in trouble, go into your dance

    Though you are stiffer than a girder
    They’ll let you get away with murder
    Razzle dazzle ’em
    And you’ve got a romance

    COMPANY (The same time as BARACK)
    Give ’em the old
    Razzle Dazzle

    BARACK –
    Give ’em the old Razzle Dazzle
    Razzle dazzle ’em
    Show ’em the first rate sorcerer you are
    Long as you keep ’em way off balance
    How can they spot you’ve got no talents?
    Razzle Dazzle ’em

    Razzle Dazzle ’em
    Razzle Dazzle ’em

    And they’ll make you a star!

    So there you have it..
