    “Jay Carney, I keep being told, is merely doing what a press secretary is expected to do; namely, put a good face on everything Obama does and says. … The problem, as I see it, is that the job should not exist in the first place. No president should have at his disposal a person who functions the same way as a criminal defense attorney. I say the president, no matter what his party affiliation may be, should take 30 minutes out of his day to face the White House press corps and answer questions. If he has time to play basketball and golf, hold galas for show biz celebrities, congratulate gay athletes for outing themselves and fly off every other day for a fund raiser, he has the time to answer questions, thus freeing Jay Carney to find honest work while he still has some slight chance of saving his soul.” –columnist Burt Prelutsky

      “A Yahoo News analysis of the 444 briefings that Carney has held since becoming White House press secretary has identified 13 distinct strains in the way he dodges a reporter’s question. Since Carney held his first daily briefing with reporters in the White House Brady Press Briefing Room on Feb. 16, 2011, for example, he’s used some variation of “I don’t have the answer” more than 1,900 times. In 1,383 cases he referred a question to someone else. But will he at least speculate on hypotheticals? No. In fact, he has refused to do so 525 times.”

    Steve, you must be so honored to have the president of the AGU, Carol Finn, as a fellow Coloradan. Maybe you should get her a subscription to your blog…

    “AGU’s mission is to promote discovery … for the benefit of humanity[.] … I live in Colorado[.] … [L]ast week’s Black Forest fire … was the worst wildfire in Colorado’s history[.] … I live in Boulder County[.] … [T]he county and the city of Longmont have just outlawed fracking[.] … [A]ll these communities need to be able to try to figure out how to balance energy development and putting drill rigs next to schools[.]”

  3. A progressive gets a pass from telling a lie under oath. A conservative gets pilloried for telling the truth. There is no double standard. There have to be standards to have double standards.

    It’s ok for him to apologize. In front of a judge.
