Carney Cracks Up
Here’s another sign of tension inside Obama’s White House. During yesterday’s White House press briefing, ABC reporter Jonathan Karl asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about another Obamacare lie — that there are other ways to sign up for Obamacare beyond the website.
The Obamacare hotline and the personal navigators must also use Healthcare.gov, so none of the other ways to enroll work either. The White House had memos acknowledging that “at the end of the day, [all applications] are all stuck in the same queue.”
Carney gave it his best spin, but Karl pressed on. In response, Carney wagged his finger at Karl and openly mocked him. It was shockingly unprofessional display from a man who is the public face of the president. You can watch the exchange here.
Perhaps the stress of the past month is taking its toll on Jay Carney. You know things are not going well in liberal land when the White House starts attacking part of its coalition known as Big Media.
