Just yesterday, he was explaining to the Press Corps how the amnesty bill will be good for the economy and actually “Raise Wages” in the United States. Even the usually reserved and respectful members of the Press Corps could not contain their laughter at this comment from the Presidents Paid Liar.
Who is Jay Carney?
James “Jay” Carney was born May 22, 1965, and is President Obama’s second White House Press Secretary. Prior to becoming Press Secretary to replace Robert Gibbs, Jay was director of communications to Vice President Biden. From September 2005 to December 2008, Jay held the post of Washington Bureau Chief for Time magazine.
Since becoming the White House Press Secretary, Carney has, as of June 21, 2013, declined almost ten thousand questions: of these, he did not have an answer for the asking journalist almost two thousand times.

I truly can’t think of any job I would rather not have. I have had some really sorry jobs in my lifetime, but all of them were better than the job Jay Carney is required to do every day. Of course this job will look great on his resume if he chooses to stay with politics. A provable track record emphasizing his ability to either lie convincingly or totally avoid the question would serve him well in a politician’s role. Any politician worth their salt can speak for two hours and never say a thing they could possibly be held accountable for. They specialize in double-speak and are very good at that.
Why would anyone want the job Jay Carney now holds? Is it for money? I have no idea how much he is paid. It could be for power, notoriety, recognition, fame, ego, or all of those things in combination. I would bet he has closed a whole bunch of doors out in the private sector, unless of course they would happen to need a professional liar. He has certainly lost all credibility in the eyes of many. To some Jay is a joke and they believe absolutely nothing he has to say.
I sometimes wonder what Jay would have to say if he was allowed to speak his own mind. Would he still tell the same lies and deny situations he knows for a fact are true out of party loyalty? I also wonder who feeds him the information he delivers in his press briefings. Does he have a mini-teleprompter or wear a wireless earpiece where someone listening behind the scenes can shoot him an answer?
It is refreshing to see members of the Press Corp asking more difficult questions and insisting on a decent answer. I wonder if the President or Vice President ever watches the briefings to get a feel for what the press and we citizens are interested in or are concerned about.
Like I said earlier, I don’t know Jay Carney. Heck, he might be a fun guy to talk with over a couple ice cold beers. One thing I do know for sure, Jay never needs to worry about me trying to steal his job from him.
Would any of you be interested in having Jay’s job?
As always, thanks for reading and your comments are appreciated.
