Jay Carney: Obama really doesn’t campaign that much

posted at 7:10 pm on March 16, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Yesterday, Jay Carney actually attempted to make the case that Barack Obama spends more time on official duties than he does campaigning:

“I still maintain that the president is still spending a vast preponderance of his time on his official duties. As is everyone who works here,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at Wednesday’s briefing when asked if Obama is officially in campaign mode.

“There is a campaign of course and it is active doing the things that it does in preparation for the time when there is a general election for the other party and there is a debate to be had directly,” he said.

Yeah. Right. Obama doesn’t campaign very much — and Ed Morrissey doesn’t write very many blog posts.

As Eric Bolling said at the start of “The Five” today, “Snookie and The Situation have GTL — gym, tan and laundry — and President Obama has GCF — golf, campaign and fundraise.”

To recap: Obama has golfed at least 92 times as president, used his American Jobs Act and now high gas prices as an excuse to make speeches across the country as part of his “official business” … and attended some 100 fundraisers during his first term in office.

Nobody blames Obama for wanting to win reelection. As just one reason I’d expect him to want to campaign again, he promised that his administration wouldn’t rest ”until every American who is able and ready and willing to work can find a job.”That’s certainly not gonna happen in his first term — hence the need for another. (Although … If he promised he wouldn’t rest, why all the golf?)

No, what’s bothersome is that Obama actually thinks he can pass off his reelection efforts as “official business.” Even The Washington Post admits the White House is in full reelection mode:

Thursday seemed to mark a significant shift in approach and intensity, with overtly political speeches by President Obama and Vice President Biden and the release of a 17-minute documentary-style testimonial celebrating what the administration considers its most significant achievements.

The documentary, narrated by Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, is called “The Road We’ve Traveled,” but it has everything to do with what lies ahead.

Although it was produced weeks ago, the documentary’s release comes amid a spate of recent bad news for the president, including some of the lowest approval ratings of his presidency, news that his fundraising efforts have been less robust than expected and some political fallout from rising gasoline prices. …

Senior White House advisers profess not to be concerned about the ratings slump, dismissing the results as not reflective of the nation’s true mood about the president, who has recently overseen an upturn in job creation. …

White House aides declined to declare any of Obama’s or Biden’s appearances campaign events, other than fundraisers at private venues.

Face it: One of Obama’s greatest strengths is his ability to campaign; it’s what won him election when he had no experience. By now, though, Americans should realize that we can do better. Out with the Campaigner-in-Chief; in with a Commander-in-Chief!

Why can’t a reporter or at least a “No-Spin” analyst use the phrase “Insult to our intelligence” when discussing drivel like this? That is the real problem.
As long as people tolerate their intelligence being insulted this will continue.

Jay Carney is the one Press Secretary that could make Robert Gibbs seem competent by comparison. Carney has all of Obama’s arrogance combined with a disdain for the press and an attitude that he can bully them into reporting what the White House wants them to report (not much bullying required with the usual media suspects).

God I miss Tony Snow. A professional who truly understood the role of White House Press Secretary.

predator on March 16, 2012 at 7:32 PM

According to Karl Rove, Obama may have trouble affording the kind of re-election campaign he wants;

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304450004577279583954819216.html

Note that in the article, Rove quotes the DNC as telling Democrats in the House and Senate not to expect any financial help in their campaigns this season, because all of the DNC’s funds are already earmarked for The Messiah’s (hopeful) Second Coming.

Also that The One’s campaign expenses are mainly going for staff, not advertising- and that they are consistently outrunning incoming funding by a huge margin.

This probably explains His “Super-PAC”, and why He is anxious for big-money contributors like Soros to pump lots of (foreign and “source unverifiable”) money into the kitty. Otherwise, if my back-of-the-envelope calculations are right, “Obama 2012″ is going to be out of operating funds by about the middle of May.

Maybe the fact that the taxpayers probably are paying for all these trips bho is ‘not campaigning’ on in this worthless mouth carney? Fox and Drudge has bho and mo, going to different states out campaigning in six different events? Who, is paying for this? Wanna bet somehow bho and mo has found a way to sock-it-to the taxpayers, not the bho’s ‘war re-election’ money? I just wonder if there is a number of days bho has actually been in the wh since elected doing his presidenten business?

He believes he can pass off the economy is getting better, the Middle East is improving, the debt is being reduced, gas pricing cannot be influenced by Pres, blah-blah….so of course he thinks he can pass off he is working more than campaigning.

..Look at the swooning, googly-eyed masses that supported him and you quickly know he doesnt have to clear a very high bar…

Jay Carney, how can you stand a job such as yours where you have to stand in front of a group of Journalists (?)on a daily basis and lie your ass off? Don’t you have a conscience? I guess it will eventually get to you because guys who preceded you didn’t seem to last too long. It seems that to move up the ladder in your wretched party, you have to take your turn lying for the POS in the Oval Office. Well, take heart! You won’t have to do it past next January when the new Republican President takes over! Good riddance to bad rubbish!!!

It all depends on if Bill Clinton makes up your definition of what “that much” means.

Well, He is in the ATL at rush hour on this fine Friday. Traffic is completely baked. A lot of angry commuters out there. Not sure if they intend to vote for him or not. So if you want to consider the amount of potentially pissed off voters he just created, against the $38,000.00 per attendee at this fundraiser. The math will probably not bode well for his efforts. Sure he will make a lot of dough. Maybe he is looking at it the same way Rmoney is. Screw the voter, I can do it with money. Who needs good will and happy voters, when you have so much dough anyway. Meanwhile the country is collapsing. HeII its only money, right?

Read on in the Rove article. The campaign mailings, instead of asking for the usual $10/$20/$30 contributions, are asking for three dollars- in return for which, the contributor gets to be in a lottery drawing.

When a Presidential campaign descends to the level of a raffle at a weekend flea market, well, as Harlan Ellison once said, “you can smell the desperation like panther sweat”.

predator on March 16, 2012 at 7:32 PM

Let’s be really fair and call the start of the Obama campaign was in 1996 when he ran for the Illinois Senate. Every election was designed to reach a higher office. Illinois Senate (where he actually voted present on the bill that allowed children who were the product of botched abortions to be wheeled into some closet and die by neglect). That was the springboard for the US Senate where he always voted present on controversial issues so as to not leave a record that would be an issue when he ran for President.

So, this freind of terrorists, racists, and criminals ended up getting elected without any sort of a record throughout the twelve years of campaigning. Shame on all of us for letting somebody to get away with this kind of thing.

– Sarah Palin is stupid

– Republicans want to return us to the Dark Ages

“I still maintain that the president is still spending a vast preponderance of his time on his official duties. As is everyone who works here,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at Wednesday’s briefing when asked if Obama is officially in campaign mode.

What Carney said is the truth. If you parse the statement he made properly:

the president is still spending a vast preponderance of his time on his official duties

In the administration’s mind, and the minds of Democrats, getting re-elected is one of his primary official duties. To the communists in the democrat party, there is no more important duty than getting this marxist re-elected. In their minds, this is a critical state duty for The One. Thus, they are telling the truth, he is spending the vast amount of time on official duties. It’s just that they aren’t willing to state to the public that getting re-elected is one of his official duties.

As is everyone who works here,

Interesting tell in this statement. If one takes the facts that Obama is spending most of his time right now campaigning and if one then understands that campaigning is, in the eyes of the administration and its handlers an official duty, then, by extension, one must also understand that everyone working in the administration is also working on getting Obama re-elected.

Wednesday’s briefing when asked if Obama is officially in campaign mode.

Note that Carney didn’t deny the accusation, merely twisted a few words.

AZfederalist on March 16, 2012 at 9:13 PM

Campaigner Obama really doesn’t president that much.

Henry Ford failed at first. Henry Ford got investors and used his own money. Henry Ford created jobs without government handouts.

But Columbus was a somewhat accurate comparison. He lied constantly, mistreated his people, broke the law and used slaves when it suited him.

A good socialist does the same thing with state power.

He doesn’t campaign that much,

He spends a lot more of his time playing or watching basketball. And then there’s golf . . . .

Remember, they only count the time he’s actually at fundraisers as his campaigning time. Those staged media photo-ops are considered part of his day job, but his time on the job appears to be dwarfed by his other interests.
