Carney: Obama Was The Leader In Debt Deal

From the Politico:

Carney: Obama was the leader

By ABBY PHILLIP & MATT NEGRIN | 08/02/11

Here’s what you need to know from Tuesday’s White House briefing with press secretary Jay Carney:

– Carney announced in the middle of his briefing, as he was talking about the debt ceiling agreement, “The president has signed the bill and turned it into law.”

President Obama had a “substantial role” in negotiating the debt deal, Carney said. He added, “In the beginning, middle and end, this process moved forward because of the president’s leadership.”

We are actually grateful for Mr. Obama’s "leadership." If Obama hadn’t decided to spring another $400 billion dollars in new taxes on Mr. Boehner at the last minute, they might have agreed on that ‘grand bargain.’

Which would have been even worse than the ‘not so grand bargain’ we did get.

– Carney poked at members of Congress who were strictly opposed to raising the debt limit, calling their position “untenable” and “nonsensical.” He said, “Imagine, of course, if you actually understand what the debt ceiling is and what raising it is about.”

It sounds like it is Mr. Carney who doesn’t understand what the debt ceiling is. In fact, the debt ceiling is a law enacted by Congress to prevent the government from borrowing more money without its permission. If that is "untenable" and "nonsensical," why even have such a law?

Besides, once upon a time not so long ago, Senator Obama himself along with every other Democrat Senator opposed raising the debt ceiling.

But of course, Mr. Carney exhibits almost as much petulant arrogance as his boss. Along with the same amount of invincible ignorance of history and the real world.

– This was Carney’s explanation for why the debt deal wasn’t as big as Obama wanted it: “We don’t live in the perfect world that allows for the things that we hope to have to happen all of the time.”

He sure turns a neat epigram. (Kidding.)

    Somewhere in hell, ‘Bagdad Bob’ is saving a chair for this guy.

  2. “We don’t live in the perfect world that allows for the things that we hope to have to happen all of the time.”
    So what we hope doesn’t matter because the world isn’t perfect. Didn’t Obie base his entire election campaign on hope? Hope would save the world… lower the sea levels…make the world love us… fix our economy… create jobs… blah blah blah ad nauseum.

    So now, according to his own press secretary, Obie was lying. Thanks Jay for finally coming clean about your boss. We knew he was a liar, but you’ve finally put it out there in simple terms that even democrats can understand.

      That’s why they used “change”. So they can change things to make everything “perfect”…to give the comrades “hope”.

      That had to have been the most dangerous and, at the same time, ridiculous slogan ever.

      Note, though, that Carneyval’s comments place blame back on us; that we’re not “perfect”. They’ve been ramping up their doctrine lately.

    I bet Lenin and Stalin are shedding a few proud tears over this blatant propaganda.

    Well, I have to say that Obamy has proven to be successful at another thing.

    His first is being a liar. No question he is world class at that. Check that: his expertise crosses generations. he is easily that greatest liar since FDR, and rivaled only by historic figures like Lenin and Hitler. And it’s not just the lying either. It’s the shamelessness of it. It’s clear that he doesn’t even accept the concept of truth, and also clear that he is one of the greatest psychopaths in history, since only hard-core psychopaths can lie as effortlessly as Obamy does. Every human being is bound by culture to experience shame when they lie in order to further themselves. It’s only the 1 in a million psychopath who can do so without even a hint of concern or embarassment.

    But now, it’s clear he has another talent.

    Somehow, against odds that must have seemed atronomical, he found a press secretary who is just as bad and as flagrant a liar (though not in Obamy’s class by a long shot) as his first one. That can’t be luck.

      Live here in DC. Finding someone as narcissitic and graced with such a great lying ability and forked tongue is as easy as pie. Even our beggars here exuded such mentality.

    • JohnMG

      …..”Even our beggars here exuded such mentality……”

      Politicians in DC are, for all practical purposes, indistinguishable from armed robbers OR beggars, thus rendeering the statement above a redundancy.

    • proreason

      The difference between Obamy and the run-of-the-mill political liar is that for the run-of-a-mill liar, lying is a tool they use to commit their crimes.

      For Obamy, lying isn’t a tool, it’s his entire life. There isn’t a single detail of his life that is not a lie. He never says a word that isn’t either a lie, or the setup for a lie at a later time. It’s 100% of what he does and who he is.

      This country has never seen anything like it. He is like a shark that has no body…one that is 100% teeth.

    • JohnMG

      …”one that is 100% teeth….”

      Well……..maybe not 100%. There’s a considerable amount of a–hole there as well.

      Politics does seem to have become little more than a business of manipulation. Community Organizing as developed by the New Left over the past few decades, though – it is a different beast, an art of subtle enslavement by preying on the poor, ignorant or weak. They’re really operating through a different worldview, one in which they are benevolent elites of the world crusading against the selfish, satanic capitalists.

      The Western Left are idiots though at the end of the day. Dangerously delusional. What – after economic power tilts to the ChiComs they think everybody’s going to just play nice in the New World Order.

      “Politicians in DC are, for all practical purposes, indistinguishable from armed robbers OR beggars, thus rendeering the statement above a redundancy.”

      * snort * Hahahaha!…I stand corrected. LOL!

      tn – here’s a good mental exercise: think on how all of the liberals love to lambast religion, especially Christianity….but then notice that their socialist programs run like a religon….

  5. Americans are finally waking up about how little this President knows about an economy.
