Jay Carney has no answer for James Rosen: “I know we are creating an exchange here for Fox”

We have all seen White House Press Secretary Jay Carney belittle any and every reporter who chooses to question the motives or actions of the Obama Administration, and yesterday was no different.

When Fox News reporter James Rosen asked Carney about the current congressional investigation into the September 11, 2012 Benghazi terror attack, Carney dismissed the findings, which indicate U.S. military posturing around the world was ‘poor’ on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, as a partisan attack on behalf of Republicans. Carney added Republicans have been politicizing the attack since it occurred.

CARNEY: The core statement is a reflection of an assessment made by Republicans who have, as you know attempted unfortunately to make this a partisan issue. And I would simply say when it comes to — and I know that we’re creating an exchange here for Fox, and I’m mindful of that. But allow me to suggest the questions about the posturing of defense forces are usually better addressed at the Pentagon.

ROSEN: My question to you, Jay, is first of all, what we’re engaged in here is not for Fox. It’s for the record. And the fact that the posturing was such that it made remedy or rescue in that situation impossible is not a conclusion solely of the house armed services committee or of Republicans. It’s a self-evident fact. So all I’m trying to ask you is with respect to these meetings that the President had with key national security principals the day before those attacks, how is it possible that you can maintain that adequate steps were taken vis-a-vis force posture by the commander-in-chief and his aides when, in fact, the posture is now universally acknowledged to have been such that it made remedy or rescue impossible?

CARNEY: Again, James, I think I said very clearly that there was not adequate security —

“I can’t take it,” Glenn said. “All I wanted you to hear was Jay Carney, again, isolating the person who asks in the room any tough question.”

In his dismissal of Rosen, Carney employs a tactic straight out of the Rules for Radicals playbook: Isolate.

“And he’s done it before. Just last week didn’t he say, you know, ‘Asking a question like that really, really brings into question your intelligence,’” Glenn explained. “But he never said that to the guy who was like, you know the 8-year-old question about Mommy. Who was that guy from Mediaite? Tommy Christopher. He never said, ‘You know, asking a question like that really brings into question your intelligence.’ Which, it does.”

Glenn is referring to the questions posed by Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher on Tuesday, in which Christopher asked Carney if there was a chance President Obama would be willing to delay Obamacare for a year if Republicans were to agree to delay heart attacks for a year?

Carney gave this horrendous question a legitimate response, but Rosen’s question, which relates to the death of four Americans, is dismissed.

“But asking a question on Benghazi, he immediately had to use Rules For Radicals,” Glenn said. “[He had to] go in and isolate and humiliate and say, ‘I question your intelligence, and any smart person here will do exactly the same.’ That’s what Rules For Radicals really is.”

    Isolate, discredit, defame, demonize and destroy. Standard tactics of the Democrat Socialists put out in plain sight for everyone to see.

    Carney is there to tell what the admin hopes people will buy as reality, and not to answer for the crimes that the admin continues to do every day, including not being brought to justice for treason, sedition, murder and war crimes.

    There will be a day of reckoning, and Carney will be singing like a canary then, count on it.

      • robert owens

        Gee, Moobboy, how much do they pay you to sit in your cubicle and troll for the Great Zero? Pathetic. Answer the question. Always the same Bush this and Bush that nonsense. Obama is divisive and vicious. And an awful president. Lower case on purpose. His daddies didn’t want him, I don’t either.

        Your fascination with the male sex organ makes you look like such a tool – pun intended. Is that all you have to offer? Why bother sowing such bad seed – pun inferred – on this site? Do you not have something else to do that would make some one happy instead of deliberately trying to piss people off – (pun streamed)? One day you will look Jesus in the eye – how about you spend as much time and effort to prepare yourself for that day as you spend here? God loves you and he will respect your choice to spend eternity in torment if you want to but I know He would rather that you turn around (repent) and choose life rather than death, choose blessing rather than cursing.

    Jay! Pretend for a moment that I am standing in front of you with a fist that is going to hit you so hard it will make you a republican

  • russellmuscle1

    So…….it’s completely acknowledged that there wasn’t adequate security to protect or save anyone ,but saying the posturing of the military was so poor as to make rescue impossible is just Republican partisan attacks? And the entire investigation is partisan gaming as well, while at the same time an admitted failure has occurred and the president is committed to fixing said failure?
    Oh…………….kay. I will say this, I wouldn’t wish Carney’s job on my worst enemy.

    I’m pissed those other reporters didn’t speak up. Cowards.

    The other reporters should take notice. Carey is not attacking “the right” or Fox but he is attacking the reporters. All of them. As a White House Press Secretary. The same White House that is home to The President Of The United States. The same President who has sworn to defend the Constitution.

    Freedom of the press took a hit today and most of press didn’t even notice.

    Jay Carney is just a dog, and as good a lair as obama. They deserve each other. We will have to wait to find out what happened in Benghazi and everything else that has gone on since obama has been in office.

    Scandal: Obama, Gore, Goldman, Joyce Foundation CCX partners to fleece USA

    Glenn Beck breaks the biggest corruption story of the century yesterday and it doesn’t appear on a Front Page anywhere. Beck points the way to the 15 Trillion dollar scam that has some amazing players.

    (See full transcript here … http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/39670/ )

    First Glenn makes and astute point: If Goldman is really the bad guy, why are these people still on the job? The Goldman suit is a put up job!

    • William C. Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; was a partner and managing director at Goldman

    • Gary Gensler, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission; spent 18 years at Goldman

    • Mark Patterson, chief of staff to Tim Geithner; former Goldman lobbyist

    • Philip Murphy; nominated for ambassador to Germany; former Goldman executive

    • Diana Farrell; deputy director of the National Economic Council; formerly with Goldman

    • Emil Michael; White House fellow; former investment banker with Goldman

    Glenn tells us that a watchdog has steered him to the collusion between Barrack Obama, George Soros, Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Franklin Raines (super crooked Fannie Mae head), CCX, and Generation Investment Management (GIM-London based co-founded by AL Gore).

    Know the crooks and their roles:

    George Soros, Joyce Foundation and connection to CCX.

    What is CCX, the Chicago Climate Exchange, projected to gross 10 Trillion a year is Cap-N-Tax passes. Obama played a pivotal role in the formation of the CCX. (Click here for expose)

    Barrack Hussein Obama, Board Member of the Joyce Foundation, funded the formation of the CCX. (

    Valerie Jarrett is still on the board, Obama’s top adviser.) Obama sat on board and funneled money to Ayer’s brother (wild huh, just a guy in his neighborhood) and to form the CCX.

    AL Gore–Goldman Sachs– GIM: Hold on to your britches, London-based Generation Investment Management sees the Trillion and they purchased a huge stake in Chicago Climate Exchange (fifth largest shareholder.) The founder of GIM is none other than former Vice President Al Gore along with Goldman people. For example other founders are David Blood (former Goldman executive), Mark Ferguson (Goldman) and Peter Harris (Goldman) to name a few. “ …

    … ooohh ya ….

    Mr. Rosen asked a fair and appropriate question. Many, Many citizens want answers about Benghazi. But, ….. We are not going to get any answers about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting and the NSA’s spying. The Federal government is actually morphing into a criminal society strangely along the lines of the cult movie Brazil. Fortunately, Obama and supporters can only walk away and squirm when faces with probing questions.

    You could see Jay Carney squirming.
    Bravo to James Rosen!!!!!
    Each of Rosen’s questions was valid and not one was answered.

  • http://suzeraining.wordpress.com/ suz

    isn’t it reasonable that there’d be (in rosen’s voice) a certain amount of annoyance/absurdity if an authority (carney) continually lies, to a criminal extent, and expects respect? YES IT’S REASONABLE. not only is it reasonable, but expected and required because this particular authority fails. they can’t point to anything meaningful that works to save their life while expecting to be treated w/the utmost respect. NO! so rosen is quite tame here.

    really sick of the right tip-toeing rhetoric and w/the always ready-to-explain ‘us’ pre-occupation. if you ask me, we are way too nice. start treating them w/disdain to their face. not w/loudness or anger but pretty much w/scold. recently, rand paul handled a “gotcha” question quite well, but i just don’t know if the people who need political enlightenment will ever have it because they’re not listening closely. they are visual and fixed on expressions, attitudes and show.

    young people are taught (from progressives) to respect ‘certain’ authority. simply put, progressives need scolding in real time. we can like feinstein all day long but if her methods are ass-backwards and her results are selfish and ineffective then why exactly would i like or respect her? her authoritative ideology affects everybody! respect another human being? of course. we must. we must tolerate all people. BUT, when authority is successful in criminalizing good people, why would i respect or like her?
