Jay Carney to press corps: You people ought to do your jobs and report the context of Obama’s “private sector” comments

posted at 4:41 pm on June 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Standard, I totally agree with him — notwithstanding the fact that Team O wets itself with glee every time Romney says something that can be yanked out of context to make him sound like a cross between Gordon Gekko and Donald Trump. (Ahem.) By all means, report the context, so long as “context” means something more than whatever the White House says it is. For instance, via James Pethokoukis, here’s some tasty context about just how fine the private sector’s doing:

U.S. companies are finding it more difficult to grow their revenue now than at just about any time since the financial crisis.

Second-quarter revenue growth for companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index .SPX is expected to be just 2.2 percent compared with an average 7.3 percent quarterly increase since the fourth quarter of 1998, according to Thomson Reuters data based on Wall Street analysts’ forecasts. Take out the supercharged sales of Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and the picture is even weaker – with growth of only 1.9 percent for the current period…

Just last year, S&P 500 revenue growth was in double-digit territory, at 11.1 percent in the third quarter following an even bigger 13.6 percent in the second quarter. Revenue growth in the first quarter of this year came in at 5 percent.

Not enough context for you? Have some more from WaPo:

The net worth of the American family has fallen to its lowest level in two decades, according to government data released Monday, driven by a more than 40 percent drop in their stakes in their homes.

The Federal Reserve’s detailed survey of consumer finances showed families’ median wealth plunged from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010 — a 39 percent decline. That put them on par with median wealth in 1992.

The Fed’s data underscore the depth of the wounds of the Great Recession and how far many families remain from healing. The median value of Americans’ debt did not change between 2007 and 2010. Meanwhile, the housing market crash inflicted particularly severe damage, with the Fed showing that the median value of Americans’ equity in their homes plunged 42.3 percent between 2007 and 2010.

Li’l more? Read Marc Thiessen on which sector is really doing fine these days, then watch former Obama car czar Steven Rattner below stray very far off-message indeed on today’s “Morning Joe.” (Hat tip to the Breitbart crew for the latter clip.) Carney’s problem here is that there are two sorts of facts that are reported by political media: Actual facts and what I call “political facts,” and if there’s a conflict between the two, the former doesn’t always trump the latter. A perfect example was the aftermath of the Tucson shooting last year, when the left spent weeks demagoging conservative rhetoric as having been a major contributing factor. Actual fact: There was no evidence that that was true. “Political fact:” It was undeniably true that the left was milking the civility thing for all it was worth and that Republicans were taking heat for it. Result: Endless dumb Beltway stories about whether the Democratic attacks would succeed in damaging the GOP/tea party brand, even though the whole thing was based on a giant lie. The fact that it was a lie was treated as almost a footnote to the “more important” story of how it would play politically; I remember reading one story in this vein where the caveat about a total lack of evidence as to Loughner’s motive was buried five or six paragraphs down. Carney and Obama are getting a tiny, tiny taste of that with Obama’s “private sector” comments insofar as the media pounced on it because of what Republicans might do with it, with the question of whether he was right or wrong a decidedly secondary concern. That’s horse-race media for you. Oh well.

Carney also says reporters should “do their jobs” and report context.

The context of Obama’s statement, that the private sector is doing fine, was an argument advancing the proposition that the private sector is doing fine.

There’s the context.

Dumb question, but are we talking what an entire family is worth here? As in their assets, home value, savings, 401k’s, etc.? If so, 77 grand ain’t diddly-poo, especially considering what the average American now “owes” thanks to the national debt.

Not only was the context reported in every account I rad, but when Obooba “clarified” a few hours later, he substituted the word “economy” for the term “private sector” and didn’t mention the private sector at all (Rush summarized).

So in his “clarification” he changed the terms of debate, and hence, the context of his clarification was different than that of his original remark.

Liar, liar, hair on fire.

The reason that Obumbles wants the federal government to fill in the gaps in state budgets is because he is looking to prevent more Scott Walkers. This is why the administration said the private sector is doing fine. They want to change the narrative. It’s not just that they believe the state in the be-all, end-all it’s also because they see it is a matter of political survival.

I remember reading one story in this vein where the caveat about a total lack of evidence as to Loughner’s motive was buried five or six paragraphs down.

It’s not really accurate to say there was a total lack of evidence about Loughner’s motive. We know from his own journal why he became fixated on Giffords: she dissed him (at least in his troubled mind) when he met and spoke with her at one of her local meet-and-greets. We also know when Loughner first expressed an intention to shoot her, and it was years before he actually did the deed.

So not only was there no evidence that “conservative rhetoric” or “conservative incivility” or Sarah Palin’s “target” graphic planted the idea in Loughner’s head; in fact there was clear evidence — from Loughner’s own writings — that those things had absolutely nothing to do with it.

They reported it in context. Your boss is a disconnected, indifferent idiot, who still thinks the “private sector is doing fine.”

I that was an error why did neither he nor axelfraud admit the error?

Neither admitted the error. Zero later said “The economy” is not doing fine, which is not the same thing as “the private sector”.

Did you idiots think we wouldn’t spot that? Were you hoping the American public would miss it or somehow equate the two?

On Friday, ABC’s Amy Walters reported that female voters expressed concern about Bain in focus groups in Richmond, Virginia and Las Vegas, Nevada. “That whole thing where factories have shut down, that concerns me,” said a former McCain voter. “That’s scary because I work for a small business.”
Reuters, reporting on the same focus groups, which were conducted with female Wal-Mart shoppers. “In the aisles of Wal-Mart, Bain is a four-letter word.”

CNN’s Maria Cardona described the focus groups like this:

When asked to use one word or phrase to describe Romney, the words or phrases they used included “Don’t know that much about him,” “selfish, “businessman who is concerned with making himself some money,” “concerned about the wealthy,” “can’t be trusted,” “scares me,” and “lackluster” — again, echoing some of what is being said in the Bain ads around the country.”

While criticism of Romney’s business record may not resonate with elites, it is clearly resonating with the actual voters who will decide this election. New independent data this week replaces theoretical banter by pundits with empirical evidence from voters.

Our side.. the side that supports and advocates for the working class will continue to hammer your mitLord on this.

The “sis” part is the scariest!

“I know 3 Hilary Rosens.” Context. Which is 2 more than google.

They keep saying millions of cops,teachers,and firefighters have been laid off.I can’t find anything on the net with numbers.You can’t swing a dead cat and not hit a cop or firefighter in Texas and the teachers are at all of the clubs shamelessly drinking.What’s the real numbers on this?

Sigh. I guess I’ll have to stop reading HA until all children are asleep if it’s going to be NSFFV (Not Suitable for Family Viewing).

Aw c’mon Cyn, where I come from that’s polite talk. :)

He meant “sis” as dismissive, not familial. “c***” would have brought the ban down—I think.

Idiot

Care to justify this remark?

public sector unemployment rate = 4.2%
national average = 8.2%

yeah, taking it out of context indeed

I picked one stock and ignored the entire housing industry, which remains a complete and total disaster.

The Home Depot’s current annualized revenues are 10% below what they were in 2008, which was well into the depth of the Demonrat-created sub-prime housing meltdown.

Or, as O’Bozo would have it, Home Depot is “doing fine”.
