Psshh, President Obama is like an “open book,” scoffs Carney

posted at 5:41 pm on July 12, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

When I first saw this headline, I immediately assumed that White House press secretary Jay Carney was being sarcastic and having a laugh at his boss’s expense. I should have known better.

White House press secretary Jay Carney is asked about President Obama’s record on transparency and if he would release his college transcripts at some point. Carney dismisses this request as a “Donald Trump question” and refers the reporter to the campaign for an answer. …

“I think the president’s record of unprecedented levels of transparency in the White House is well established,” Carney said at today’s briefing. “His record as a candidate, both when he ran for the Senate, when he ran for the president in 2008 and now as a candidate for reelection, in terms of transparency, is a sold one and reflects a long tradition being an open book, as I think he described it when he was asked this question not long ago. That’s part of the process.”

Now hold up just a dang minute, Mr. Carney. President Obama, both as a candidate and as the leader of The Most Transparent Administration Evah, has been a far cry from what any reasonable person would call an “open book” — but way to try and dismiss the question by bringing in the almost universally agreed upon blustering bombast of Donald Trump.

Nevermind that the mainstream media gave candidate Obama a stupendously negligent vetting prior to the 2008 election. The real issue is that transparency, to President Obama, is just another in a long line of broken campaign promises. Funnily enough, I’m going to go ahead and let CNN handle this one.

He promised to publish the White House visitors’ log so the public could see who was coming and going all the time. But his administration later came under fire for holding meetings with lobbyists across the street at a townhouse with no visitor records.

Foreman continued by stating that the president “appointed a transparency czar and a year later dropped him, saying the White House attorney can handle that work.”

Foreman then turned his attention to a June fundraiser at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker. At that event, “the Secret Service parked a dump truck in front of our camera to keep Obama hidden from view.”

Those incidents, the veteran CNN journalist observed, have prompted [liberal] publications ranging from the New York Times to the Mother Jones magazine “to sharply criticize the president for being far from the champion of transparency he claims to be.”

And what’s more, as a candidate this time around, President Obama’s demand to have absolute privacy at certain fundraisers, re: by requiring attendees to surrender their cell phones, is unacceptable when he’s simultaneously trying to paint Romney as “the most secretive candidate since Richard Nixon.” In my opinion, unless you’re in your family’s personal rooms or hunkered down in a dire moment of significance to national security, sorry buddy, but you are not entitled to privacy. You’re the president of the United States, a.k.a. public servant number one. Deal with it.

Yeah, like Barry’s own books, which are pure fiction.

Philly on July 12, 2012 at 5:45 PM

Sorry to double post this but this is how I see it:

I see it this way and posted an article a few days ago on this thought…
Obama who had “unheralded” turnout, as far as the MSM is concerned, and beat McCain by what 4-5%.
Which of these groups are going to turnout in the same numbers:
Black vote
Blue collar vote
White collar vote
Female vote
Jewish vote
Hispanic vote
Independents
Youth Vote
Voters in NV, CO, WI, PA, FL, NC, VA, OH, etc

If Obama drops in any of these areas in enthusiasm it is there for Romney’s taking. I do not see Obama INCREASING or STAYING the same in ANY of these categories EVEN in the Black vote. They will stay home if they decide to not vote for Romney. Look how Obama has treated Israel, Netanyahu and Jews in general. Both white and blue collar voters are sick of him as unemployment numbers are killing both sectors. The women and hispanic vote will also not be supported as the economy has specifically hurt them.

Romney has his WORK cut out for him but I do not see Obama equalling in ANY OF THE ABOVE sectors as he did in 2008.

This gives me hope…my caveat though is I NEVER thought Clinton would get re-elected in ’96! though Perot had something to do with that in ’92 and ’96.

Isn’t this the same dude who had reporters locked in a closet during a fundraiser? The same dude who refuses to show us his college transcripts and thesis or medical records? The same dude who held an event on transparency in government….that was closed to the press? The same dude who’s currently hiding thousands of Fast & Furious documents in order to avoid implicating his Attorney General(and possibly himself)?

Yeah, he’s a real open book, Jay.

Such an open book, in fact, that the White House gave an Executive Order that protects valuable documents that would present more light into the “Fast and Furious” case. I really don’t understand these people, “these” being the left. It’s like they live in “Bizarro World”.

When the MSM STARTS…STARTS to even ask questions about Obama’s life pre-2008 then I’ll start to believe college-boy Carney on Obama’s transparency. There are soooo many background stories we only have snippets of and yet we know Romney “beat up” and cut some 15 y/o’s hair almost 50 YEARS AGO!! Sheesh.

g2825m on July 12, 2012 at 5:49 PM

carney is almost as a joke as joe is, but DO NOT get rid of either bho. I guess carney didn’t bother to mention that bho/team has spent millions upon millions on lawyers seeing to it most of bho’s past is no where we can see it?

I JUST would love it to death if Mitt/team had the guts/stones/whatever you call it to DEMAND things from bho’s past! But alas, probably won’t happen? Can’t do that to a Black man in the wh now can we? The ‘race’ thing you know!

Democrat Media Double Standard 101:

In 2004, al-Associated Press successfully sued the Bush White House to force him to release all of his military records.

Later that same year, however, the very same “news organization” willingly participated in the suppression/coverup of the complete military records of the Idiot the Democrats ran against him.

Obama is an open book, if that book’s author is Alinsky.

Has this been mentioned here? The Obama administration continues to trample the law. From about an hour ago from Heritage Foundation.

Obama Guts Welfare Reform

Today, the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the reform law. The Obama directive bludgeons the letter and intent of the actual reform legislation.

I appreciate the thoughts.

Speaking of war and surges, these and many other things Obama has not been transparent on in the last 4 years.

g2825m on July 12, 2012 at 6:00 PM

Romney should release his transcripts, from Stanford right through BYU to Harvard Law and HBS, right away. He could include an annual statement of how he paid his tuition each year too, just for more zest. The pressure on Obamba will be enormous. I’d love this, I admit it.

Midas on July 12, 2012 at 6:01 PM

Twas the night before breakfast for Lardass Michelle,
Whose figure was such it had all gone to Hell.
The hips were a draggin’ all over the floor,
While the waistline could never quite push through the door.

The lobsters were hung by their claws in the kitchen,
While back in the West Wing Michelle was a gritchin’.
And Bo in his ego, and Michelle with her tongue,
Had recently concluded her jowls were well-hung.

When out by the garden, there arose such a screech,
Bo sprang to the window-tripped over the beech!
Away to the window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up..the sash.

The moon on the rear of Barney Frank’s ass,
Made clear the fact he was having more gas.
When, what to Bo’s upturned chin should appear,
But Elections Two-Twelve and the results were quite clear.

With a little old Irishman full of the blarney,
He knew in a moment it must be Jay Carney.
More vapid than Waxman his fibs they did fly,
And Joe Wilson was heard to cry out that “You lie!”

“Now Al Gore! Now Grayson! Now Pelosi and Weiner!
On, Boxer, On, Feinstein, On camera! We seen ‘er!
To the top of the flagpole, his Weiner did rise,
Which called for more saltpeter, a word to the wise.

As wet Clintons that before the wild interns erect,
Bo hit the big button that made it eject!
So, up to the House, his deficit bill flew,
But everyone knew that her dress was still blue!

And then, in a twinkling, Bo heard on TV,
The scratching and clawing of each little flea.
As he drew in his head, and his Pinocchio nose,
Down the chimney Jay Carney came like his home bros’.

He was dressed all in camo, from his salt to his peter,
And his lies were all bundled in layers of cheater.
A bundle of falsehoods he had flung on his spine,
He looked like Baghdad Bob, claiming all was still fine.

His mic-how it twinkled! his TOTUS a putz!
His cheeks were like ACORNs, you knew he was nuts!
His droll little grin spread all over his face,
Which called for a quick spray or two of some Mace!

A stump speech he held, clenched tight in one fist,
Like all of the others, it was one to be missed.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Was all it would take before it was dead.

He was thin as a rail, befitting his rank,
And Michelle was there too, her breath how it stank.
And laying his finger inside of his nose,
A booger he dug, the big one he chose!

He sprang to his rostrum, to the press he did whistle,
And he kissed Helen Thomas, like the hose on a Bissell.
Then Bo heard him exclaim, as he lied through his teeth,
“Socialism for all, that to thee we bequeath!”

OT:

Headline at TWS:

Obama: My Biggest Mistake Was Not ‘Telling a Story’

“It’s funny – when I ran, everybody said, well he can give a good speech but can he actually manage the job?” he said. “And in my first two years, I think the notion was, ‘Well, he’s been juggling and managing a lot of stuff, but where’s the story that tells us where he’s going?’ And I think that was a legitimate criticism.”

Good lord…the man has never shut up, and all he has told is ‘stories’.

This one is for you, Ericka. Go get’em.

btw, huge t.v. ad buys have been placed to promote “2016: Obama’s America” – a documentary about our Imperial President, which opens with limited release tomorrow, nationwide July 27.

2016 Obama’s America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the world’s most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man’s past will redefine America over the next four years. The film examines the question, “If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?” Across the globe and in America, people in 2008 hungered for a leader who would unite and lift us from economic turmoil and war. True to America’s ideals, they invested their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama. What they didn’t know is that Obama is a man with a past, and in powerful ways that past defines him–who he is, how he thinks, and where he intends to take America and the world. Love him or hate him, you don’t know him. — (C) Official Site

Clearly the producers of this film don’t think Zero is an “open book”.

Keep in mind that the Carnie passed himself off as a ‘reporter’ at Time magazine for years.
You can be stone sure that 95% of the ‘journalists’ in the media hive have identical political views and leftist, ideological activist BS spreading that this slug does.
The only difference is the signature on the paycheck.

ROMNEY NARROWS VP CHOICES; SURPRISE NAME EMERGES AS FRONTRUNNER

Hmmmm….thoughts?

It implies that it may not be Portman, Pawlenty, Ryan, Jindal, or Rubio. Is that how you all would read that?

What about Allen West? Of course that would go against his meme about wanting to choose someone that was ready to POTUS as West does not have much political experience though he does have the executive experience with all of his years as an Officer in the Army.

This ‘open book’ is as interesting and informative as a composition notebook I can get at the drug store.

The only printed material is on the front and back covers.

The rest is blank.

Nah. :) Just kidding. It’s blank.

Those incidents, the veteran CNN journalist observed, have prompted [liberal] publications ranging from the New York Times to the Mother Jones magazine “to sharply criticize the president for being far from the champion of transparency he claims to be.”

Much of the feeling of the unreality of life under the Obama regime comes from the aggressive, outlandish lying by the administration in which the media and the wider media pop culture are often complicit EXCEPT when it inconveniences the mainstream media directly. “The private sector is fine.” “8% unemployment under Obama is not such a big deal but Bush’s rate of less than 5% unemployment was a catastrophe.”

It’s the same tenor of things you’d find under a totalitarian regime like those of Venezuela or Cuba. There’s the official reality that is foisted without conscience or honest reflection on the public and then there’s the truth and real life. We, as a nation, are not in a healthy spot right now.

WOW! That would fit the criteria he is looking for; it would also be an Ace of Spades Romney pulls on the river card as Obama just went all-in with his two pair.

Next time you apply for a high paying job, tell the interviewer to shove it when he asks for your college transcripts and see how far that gets you.

That has been superceeded by the book detailing Obama’s accomplishments.

Great response by Romney campaign about Obama and not telling enough of a good “story”:

“President Obama believes that millions of Americans have lost their homes, their jobs and their livelihood because he failed to tell a good story. Being president is not about telling stories. Being president is about leading, and President Obama has failed to lead. No wonder Americans are losing faith in his presidency.”

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-my-biggest-mistake-was-not-telling-story_648482.html

It’s not that he HASN’T told his story, it’s that he has told his story and it reads like a nightmare or a comic book…pick your genre of reading. :o)

If CarneyClown is talking about Ofibber’s lies, fabrications, exaggerations and denials, then we’ve got a winner bcuz those are the most transparent lies, fabrications, exaggerations and denials I’ve ever seen or heard.

Obama’s Record:

Stimulus, Obamacare, GM Chrysler bailout, Frank-Dodd, Cash 4 Clunkers, Green DOE investments, Lowered nation’s credit rating, More deficit spending than all previous POTUSs combined, Oct 2010 bailouts to unions disguised as aid to State’s budgets, Beer summit teachable moment fiasco, Every budget rejected by Dem controlled Senate, Jobs bills rejected by Dem controlled Senate, Rejected Simpson-Bowles deficit committee recommendations (committee he appointed), Promised but failed to stop horrendous waste & fraud in entitlement programs,

So, what have I missed that he can proudly run on?

Parking the dump truck to hide Prezzy Open Book from the cameras was very appropriate. Hiding his past from prying eyes would take a fleet of dump trucks. Did you hear young Barry once stayed at a HoJo?

Good rundown jb…

You could also add the BP Oil spill where he delayed for how many months before deciding whether or not to contact other countries who were offering support and all the “dithering” of what to do, he also changed the meaning of the environmental impact study and shut down the Gulf, Fast and Furious, his delays on the surge fro over 6 months when the Generals asked for 60K troops but AT LEAST 40K and Obama sent over 30K, etc etc
