Jay Carney on Rosen’s WH visits: I personally know three women named “Hilary Rosen”

posted at 4:51 pm on April 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Admit it. Deep down, although you hate yourself for it, you kind of admire the sheer balls it takes to lie to a room full of reporters like this with a straight face. Not even a hint of sheepishness in his demeanor at playing this dumb, even though the “Hilary B. Rosen” who turns up in the White House logs has the same middle initial and the same unorthodox spelling of “Hilary” (with one L) as our heroine. You earned your pay today, Jay.

Usually I can get a sense of when a full-fledged media shinolastorm is brewing from the amount of early buzz about a story on Twitter, but I didn’t see this one coming. There was some anger about it last night in my timeline after she did her hit on CNN but I figured it’d be a one-hour thing. Sixteen hours later, here we are. I’ve been thinking about that all day: What essential ingredients are needed to turn indignation at a strategist on the other side into a sensation that dominates the day’s news cycle? Obviously there’s genuine offense at the heart of it about stay-at-home moms being demeaned, especially by a sneering Beltway bien-pensant, but that’s not normally page-one news. Other possible ingredients:

– Payback for The One’s moronic “war on women” demagoguery. It’s one thing to see Ann Romney and other moms insulted, it’s another to have it done by Team Hopenchange, whose record on gender equality doesn’t quite justify the amount of finger-wagging it tends to do on this topic. Axelrod and company deserve to have their faces rubbed in this pile of bilge, even if they did run screaming from Rosen on Twitter after her CNN segment.

– Punishment for the left’s perceived disdain for full-time moms. Rosen’s comments match how the right thinks the left — or at least the left’s intelligentsia — actually sees stay-at-home mothers, even though liberals will never admit it. The Political Math guy summed it up in one simple Venn diagram. It’s not really about Rosen, it’s about hammering liberals for trying to hide from her Kinsleyan gaffe simply because it’s politically inconvenient for them to come clean.

– Pushback against media bias. The press would have wet itself had a righty pundit disparaged stay-at-home moms this way — “war on women, war on women!!1!” — so the right’s going to do its best to reduce the double standard by making this story as big a deal as possible. The noisier things get, the more the media has to grit its teeth and spend ink and airtime on a meme that’s unhelpful to their boyfriend.

– It’s a way to unite behind Romney. That’ll be a process, of course, not something that happens overnight, but after a long primary it feels good to come to the defense of a standard-bearer whom many grassroots conservatives still don’t quite trust. Special thanks to Rosen for choosing as her target the single most likable member of the Romney campaign. That made things easy.

Anything else I’m missing? I think the second reason is what’s chiefly driving it, even more so than scoring a point on Obama and making him back off on the “war on women” crap. It’s the suspicion that progressives generally, not just Rosen, look down on women who can afford to work but who choose to stay at home, either because they underestimate the amount of labor involved or because they think full-time motherhood is “unhelpful” to the cause of feminism. Anyway, read Kevin Williamson at NRO for more on that.

I would also like to know why they can just dismiss what she has told her husband when she has been on the campaign trail for at least a year and probably has spoken to thousands of women. How hard would it be not to relate to her husband what women are telling her? It doesn’t take an economist to just simple tell someone what people are telling you.

There is, for me at least, the stupidity of Rosen’s argument.

Voter from WA State on April 12, 2012 at 5:49 PM

Exactly.

Say I talk to someone who says their car needs new brakes. I go to Hilary Rosen’s garage and tell her, hey I know this guy whose car needs new brakes. Rosen would then ask me if my car needs new brakes. I say no, my care’s brakes are just fine. She’d then say, well you can’t possibly know if that other guy’s car needs new brakes since your car doesn’t need new brakes.

If you break down that logic you realize just how insane her comments truly are and how insane liberals are for parroting them.

angryed on April 12, 2012 at 5:53 PM

After the dhimocraptic disasters in the month of March and after this week, can you imagine the utter lack of favorability the obama administration would have if the legacy media, now controlled by the dhimpcrapts, provided an even handed account of events. Don’t lose any sleep over it. They never will.

Old Country Boy on April 12, 2012 at 5:54 PM

I would imagine being a governor’s wife comes with a whole list of duties and responsibilities, so I’d say Ms. Rosen (whichever one made the remarks 1, 2 or 3) owes an apology to the first ladies of all 50 states.

“Let me just interject on this. The GOP, should I be the nominee, I think can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record. I’ve been in public life for 20 years. I expect them to pore through everything that I’ve said, every utterance, every statement. And to paint it in the most undesirable light possible. That’s what they do. But I do want to say this to the GOP. If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful. Because that I find unacceptable. [Obama praised his wife's patriotism and said that for Republicans] to try to distort or to play snippets of her remarks in ways that are unflattering to her I think is just low class … and especially for people who purport to be promoters of family values, who claim that they are protectors of the values and ideals and the decency of the American people to start attacking my wife in a political campaign I think is detestable.”

- Barack Obama, 2008

“You know essentially, you’ve taken on sort of the most sympathetic person in the candidate’s realm, the wife, who is taking care of the children, supporting the husband, doing everything she can because she loves him….it’s a stupid strategy.”

DBear on April 12, 2012 at 5:09 PM

Thanks DBear, since Lib4Life got herself banned for smacking on religion, we haven’t had a stupid opinion in days.

I don’t even know why I’m going to explain it, but here goes….

Mitt and Ann went to college on the stock that Mitt’s dad invested for him when he was growing up. Mitt cashed the stock and that’s what they lived on during their time in college. They had no other income and didn’t take out any student loans. They lived in an 800 square foot apartment. They had a rug because Ann glued together sample pieces, and voila, a rug. Their desk was a door that was propped up between two sawhorses. Their first son was born then and Ann and Mitt took turns while the other went to school. Finally by the 3rd son Ann decided the kids were more important and stayed home.

And that’s the real story. No fancy stuff like their kids in Mexico with friends and 20 secret service people protecting them at the cost of millions of dollars while there’s a travel advisory on, no going to Vegas while telling America that time is over. Just a good old fashioned success story.

Boring, isn’t it?

itsspideyman on April 12, 2012 at 6:55 PM

Stoic Patriot – You take up this thread knocking and ridiculing the probable republican nominee, when he is the only person who has any chance of beating obama, who almost everyone agrees is one of the worst presidents in history and should be removed as soon as possible. You don’t tell us who you would like to run against obama. You are only negative. You fill up the thread with citations that are of no consequence to where we are going now. I think that very few of us will consider your citations. I know I won’t. I have not been a Romney supporter, but I am willing to support him if he is the nominee. To engage in your tactics is counterproductive. You aren’t going to change anything by them and you are just going to convince people to ignore you,

I say again, who is your nominee so we have a chance to examine his record, and discuss him/her with the same fervor you show on this thread? Hmmmmm.

Ah yes, the old “electability” argument. The problem is you get so worked up about getting Obama out of office you’ve never bothered to ask yourself what you plan on replacing him with.

You don’t tell us who you would like to run against obama. You are only negative.

In a perfect world, that would have been Mike Huckabee. Of the GOP field, it would have been Rick Santorum. Of the Constitution Party candidates, the one who’s left the most favorable impression on me thus far is Virgil Goode.

You fill up the thread with citations that are of no consequence to where we are going now. I think that very few of us will consider your citations. I know I won’t. I have not been a Romney supporter, but I am willing to support him if he is the nominee. To engage in your tactics is counterproductive.

Old Country Boy on April 12, 2012 at 7:43 PM

The Constitution Party doesn’t select a nominee via primaries and caucuses, but does it the old fashioned way at the party’s convention. Thus, no nominee is yet available. However, since we have the biggest flip-flopper to date yet with the presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, conservatives ought to stop prostituting themselves for the party and demand something for their vote. That’s what I intend to do in supporting the Constitution Party, which unlike the GOP, hasn’t been given a bite at the apple.

Stoic Patriot on April 12, 2012 at 8:27 PM

At this point, and after too much power grabbing by obama I adhere to the following: We must all hang together or surely we will all hang separately. With obama and the marxists in power, making rules by fiat, you should be more afraid of hanging separately than you could ever imagine. In The “old” United States, we had the luxury of all running off in different directions because no president had the un-American upbringing to change us into North Korea. We have one now, and running off in all directions just allows obama and the marxists to destroy us in detail.

I appreciate your devotion to your principles but:

itsspideyman on April 12, 2012 at 6:55 PM

Last year Russia had its own census. Russian TV showed Putin and wife in their apartment, all 500 square feet of it, maybe smaller. Sitting on furniture that we usually see here in USA in deep discount furniture stores (you know, 90 days credit, no proof of income, etc), with mostly bare walls. Yes, very modest, extremely modest living quarters by our standards, actually projects type living quarters. Poor Putin. Heartbreaking story, for sure. Unless one knew where and how he actually lives.

Should anyone be somehow impressed by poor Romney’s struggling life when he was able to study at HARVARD while not having a worry about living and tuition expenses? 800 square foot apt? When 500 square foot places in NY and SF are the “norm” these days? Some story of struggle…

But nothing. Strange. Was it too stupid to merit their contempt?

Hey, Power Line has linked to this thread.

Is this three in addition to the lez chubette who opened her mouth or is she already included?

Carney was chosen to be the PS precisely because he can act the baffoon perfectly…he’s better at it than Gibbs even!

– It’s a way to unite behind Romney. That’ll be a process, of course, not something that happens overnight, but after a long primary it feels good to come to the defense of a standard-bearer whom many grassroots conservatives still don’t quite trust. Special thanks to Rosen for choosing as her target the single most likable member of the Romney campaign. That made things easy.

I really wonder if the Democratic leadership has any idea how big an unforced error this is. They picked absolutely the worst person (from their perspective) possible to attack. Without a doubt.

And fired the Republican base up in a way that was simply impossible otherwise.

Honest to G-d, I sometimes wonder if Obama is a plant. Not necessarily a Manchurian Candidate. But maybe he’s on our side after all? How the hell could someone believe what he believes, and surround himself with people so inept and intellectually crippled? I mean, really?

Maybe his grand plan was to demonstrate just how stupid the Left is, but the only way was from the inside?

In some ways, I’m kind of hoping that this really is the case (even though I’m sure it’s not, and there’d be no way to prove it anyway). Otherwise, I simply have to give up all hope for this country. That we’ve allowed this kind of leadership to take over and run us into the ground, because they really believe these policies are what’s best for the country, is too horrifying to accept.

Carney is a joke. Lord I miss Tony Snow, the last great ps and a great man as well.

You’re really reaching buddy.

Admit it. Deep down, although you hate yourself for it, you kind of admire the sheer balls it takes to lie to a room full of reporters like this with a straight face. Not even a hint of sheepishness in his demeanor at playing this dumb,

Several things here:
First, it is a room full of sympathetic reporters who are doing their level best to figure out how to bail out the administration while maintaining some shred of journalistic authority to the public so they maintain their ability to serve as a propaganda arm of the DNC. Second, given the fact that Jugears is so narcissistic and afraid of not looking like the smartest person in the room, he is not surrounding himself with the best and brightest. He is surrounding himself with people who make him look like the best and brightest. Thus, I’m not sure that Carney is actually playing dumb. Since we know that Jugears isn’t surrounding himself with people as smart as he is and given that Obama is not a smart man, by extension, we know Carney is dumber than Jugears. You do the math.

Imagine if this moron was the press secretary for a republican administration. The LSM would be going nuts!

tbear44 on April 12, 2012 at 11:26 PM

Does Turdboy realize that, by attacking Ann Romney, they make a sympathetic figure of her and, by association, her husband? This is even true of people like me who have zero regard for Mittens.

After the dhimocraptic disasters in the month of March and after this week, can you imagine the utter lack of favorability the obama administration would have if the legacy media, now controlled by the dhimpcrapts, provided an even handed account of events. Don’t lose any sleep over it. They never will.

Old Country Boy on April 12, 2012 at 5:54 PM

The disasters since his inaugeration would be more like it.

He/They also must know more than 1 person with the names Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, & Malik Shabazz: From ABC News Archives, 30 Oct 2009 — “Taking what officials call an “unprecedented” step in transparency, the White House released visitor logs today showing some popular names: William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, R. Kelly, and Malik Shabazz visiting the White House.”

easyt65 on April 13, 2012 at 7:52 AM

So Jim, are you saying we DON’T REALLY KNOW whos coming and going in the White House???

I think we have a security issue here…

orbitalair on April 13, 2012 at 8:39 AM

I know four guys named Malik Shabazz and seven (count them – 7) women named Oprah Winfrey.

All of them very common names.

Fuquay Steve on April 13, 2012 at 10:35 AM

Just to keep my records straight… do I log that as 3 little lies or one big fat one?

2Tru2Tru on April 13, 2012 at 11:35 AM

At howmanyofme.com statistics predict that there are only two people named Hilary Rosen in the entire United States. Fwiw, I don’t know either one of them.

Voice on April 13, 2012 at 11:58 AM

What a coincidence! I know three bigfatliars named “Jay Carney”!

logicman_1998 on April 13, 2012 at 12:48 PM

I personally know three people whose name is George Washington. But only one was the first President of the US and it doesn’t take Einstein to determine which of the three it was.

Does anyone have a clue what Carney’s point might be?

BMF on April 13, 2012 at 1:49 PM

Ok, Jay thinks everyone in the press is stupid. For the most part he is right. This is causing great confusion in my mind.

NavyDavy on April 13, 2012 at 4:52 PM

According to HowManyOfMe.com, there are two people named Hilary Rosen in the United States.
