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.

Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

A nine-month-old boy who appeared in Pakistan charged with attempting to murder police officers has been cleared, following a week-long police investigation. Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan was accused of being part of a ruthless gang of gas thieves who tried to kill police by hurling stones at them during a raid. Last week he was pictured at court in Lahore sitting on his grandfather´s lap, contentedly sucking on a bottle of milk as the charges against him were read out. A Pakistani lawyer said the judge announced the decision after Saturday´s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
