Jay Carney = Paid Liar

You don’t get much more blunt than this:

Issa: Carney Is a ‘Paid Liar’

Representative Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, called White House press secretary Jay Carney a “paid liar” in an interview today.

Issa, who is involved in the investigation of the IRS’s decision to target tea-party groups, was blunt about his belief that most likely the employees in the Cincinnati IRS offices were acting on orders from Washington, D.C.

“The administration is still — their paid liar, their spokesperson, picture behind,” Issa said on CNN’s State of the Union this morning, where the set has a picture of Carney behind host Candy Crowley, “he’s still making up things about what happen[ed] and calling this local rogue.”

“The reason that Lois Lerner tried to take the Fifth [Amendment] is not because there’s a rogue in Cincinnati,” he added. “It’s because this is a problem that was coordinated. in all likelihood, right out of Washington headquarters.”

You would think that somebody who lies as much as Jay Carney would be better at it.

    I still haven’t forgiven Issa for leading the recall of Gray Davis, but he’s starting to grow on me.

    Obama and his thugs are “going rogue”–words for which they can thank Sarah Palin.

  3. angienc (D) says:

    Has Carney tried the old “I know at least three Doug Shulmans/Lois Lerners” like he said about Hilary Rosen yet?

    • 1539days says:

      He has said that visitor logs that show Shulman visiting 157 times may not be accurate. It’s hard to have accurate visitor logs when they keep forging them all the time.

    interesting article on changing the definition of integrity

  5. jeffhas says:

    That is amazing language…. I’m thinkin’ he must have the goods…

    • wmcb says:

      That was my thought too, Jeff. That’s pretty far out on the rhetorical limb to go, unless he’s got them nailed dead to rights.

    • Mary says:

      He does…..they’re now inerviewing the 88 grunts from the Cincinnati office, who are telling them the “instructions” came from the Washington DC office.

    • lildoggy4u says:

      Remember Harry Reid saying he had seen Mitt Romney’s tax returns while demanding him to release them?

  6. Mary says:

    Gateway Pundit showing a video of Stephanie Cutter (Obama’s deputy campaign manager, 2012) openly admitting that she was IN a lot of those 157 meetings with Schuleman, the previous IRS director.

    What the HELL is Obama’s deputy campaign director doing in policy meetings that included Mr. Schuleman?

    • wmcb says:

      There is no difference between policy and politics with this administration, and never has been.

      • Mary says:

        True story. But I was still shocked that she’d openly admit she was there, as a political operative. Silly me. 🙂

        • Lulu says:

          I think it is the other way around. The IRS commissioner was at a political election meeting. Mr. Shulman was giving a status report to the campaign. IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

        • Mary says:

          God Almighty, Lulu. You’re probably right. It’s how they roll.

        • wmcb says:

          Exactly, LuLu. They were getting their asses kicked in the 2010 midterms, largely due to TeaParty groups. They were strategizing for 2012, so the same thing didn’t happen to Obama. They came up with the bright idea to shut down those groups via the IRS.

          There is NO reason for an IRS director to be visiting the WH and sitting in meetings with political/campaign/strategy staff unless that is the case. None.

        • Lulu says:

          Yeah it is all too cozy. His wife works for a voting rights something or other so that needs to be investigated to see if that is the pay off. The conflicts of interest are everywhere. It used to be congresscritters whose wives or children got the lobbying jobs. Now it has spread to federal appointees.

  7. swanspirit says:

    Funny that he should be sitting across the table from a paid liar talking about another paid liar, the look on he face was priceless

    • wmcb says:

      Wow. Good article, and if the full transcripts are released, as Issa says they will be, it looks pretty bad.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I’m guessing the partial release is a trap set for the White House.

        • Lulu says:

          There is going to be a lost of glaring and pinched buttocks at the federal building in Cincinnati tomorrow. They know now that what they say is going to be made public. And there are no union flunkies or management handlers to intimidate them. Let the finger pointing begin!

        • 1539days says:

          I hope Issa learned something from Breitbart. When Breitbart released the ACORN video, he waited for all the “isolated incident” excuses to come out before the next one. Then ACORN tried the same excuse and the third video came out. By the fourth video, they just gave up on excuses.

    I checked my Lotto numbers from last night and discovered I matched 4 of 6 for a $85 winner. I got so excited I took off to the liquor store, forgetting I had meat on the grill out back.

    The grill is fine. The meat is very well done.

  11. DandyTiger says:

    I’ve been really enjoying the WH train wreck these last few weeks. Apparently Obama has a binder full of criminals. What a clusterf#@k.

      Of course they aren’t. Or at least, not in depth. Because when the secular citizens of an Islamic country take to the streets because they don’t want the mullahs meddling in their lives, that’s just “unrest”. Just like Iran – you get crickets when it’s protest against fundamentalist Islam.

      But when the fucking Muslim Brotherhood wants to seize control and put us all in burkas, that’s all flowers and freedom and “Arab Spring”, and the media goes all teary-eyed over the idealism of it.

    Lois Lerner and Jay Carney could come right out and say this entire IRS attack against citizens came from Broncobama, and the obots would still deny it. I’ve spoken with several people who were full on against anything Bush, and who have been blaming W for everything since 2008. They are saying “So? There were some other organizations that were targeted as well.”
    They are utterly brainless.

    OH OH guess he will not get any DNC money

    I am no fan of Turdblossom but day-um!

    According to Plouffe, there were no indications those abuses were politically motivated.

    “There’s been no suggestion — the independent, the prosecutor looked at this, excuse me, the inspector general said there was no politics involved in this,” Plouffe said. “No one has indicated at all that the White House is involved. The IRS director was appointed under President [George W.] Bush, served under both presidents, attested…. So this was not a political pursuit.”

    But Plouffe’s remarks drew a sharp response from Rove: “Baloney.” This led to a heated exchange between the two.

    Partial transcript follows:

    ROVE: Baloney. Baloney.
    PLOUFFE: Not baloney, Karl.
    ROVE: If it was not political then why are only conservative groups being targeted?
    PLOUFFE: There were liberal groups targeted.
    ROVE: Oh really? Name one. Name one. But what conservative, what liberal group had Tea Party or patriot in its name that it was targeted? Not a single liberal group has appeared to say…
    PLOUFFE: You’re taking license here, Karl.
    ROVE: No, I’m not. I am not at all.

    • yttik says:

      You don’t have to like Rove to respect his skills. Besides, if anyone is an expert on baloney, it would be Karl Rove.

    • Mary says:

      What Plouffe doesn’t say in his original statement is that the IG only did an audit, NOT an investigation. IG did say that political tactics were used—-clearly—and that conservatives were “targeted.” (his words)

      Plouffe is playing the “depends on what is, is” game. He’s lying, and Rove is right.

    • angienc (D) says:

      Say what you want about Turdblossom — he was the only one who said on election night that the results were NOT FUCKING RIGHT and questioned WTF was going on.
      Of course he was quickly silenced and ridiculed by the MSM with help from the ABRs on the right but nonetheless — he smelt the bullshit & called it out in real time.

      Dear god. An Occu-nut is married to the IRS commish who is overseeing the harassment of an opposing ideology. It is the Obama Politburo.

      • wmcb says:

        People on Twitter are datamining her old timeline. Seems she was raising hell about Romney’s taxes. And all the evil evil conservative groups spending money since Citizens United. Funny that her husband turned around and targeted exactly those groups. Remember Harry Reid’s infamous “source” for his accusations about Romney’s tax returns? People are starting to think it was her, via hubby.

        • Lulu says:

          Excellent. She hung her husband out to dry on Twitter.

        • Lulu says:

          Shulman’s wife is a senior executive for Public Campaign which receives “major funding” from the pro-Obamacare alliance Health Care for America NOW!, which is comprised of the labor unions AFL-CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and the progressive activist organization Move On, among others.”
          Earlier this month, when news broke of the targeting scandal broke, Public Campaign president and CEO Nick Nyhart belittled the concerns of disenfranchised conservatives. “There are legitimate questions to be asked about political groups that are hiding behind a 501(c)4 status,” Nyhart said in a statement provide to ABC. “It’s unfortunate a few bad apples at the IRS will make it harder for those questions to be asked without claims of bias.”http://www.redwhine.org/former-irs-commissioner-shulmans-wife-works-for-liberal-group-fighting-open-campaign-spending/

          Was Shulman and Lerner the bad apples Nyhart was referring to?
