    How should Jay Carney address the press ?

    This administration funnels everything to the presidents attorney…

    The attorney-client privilege prevails…

    The president only hears of problems via the news wires…

    Once disclosed, the president can’t comment, because it is under investigation….

  • usa8888

    Ibsles hasn’t got a dime invested and knows nothing about nothing, especially the Stock Market…

    If they were a threat to Americans and our security, then they had every reason to be taken out!!
    That’s how I “spin it!!!” How about you?

    Plan to Kill a Cop, you are probably gonna die, sooner or later, what’s the difference.

    Would a Republican President be questioned by a te@bagger about this?? Nope!

    When the news was bad for the GOP, the ratings at Fox tanked! The Neo Cons tuned out.

    @SP, In LA yesterday, we elected an Italian Democratic Mayor for ya!! Clinton endorsed Garcetti’s female opponent Wendy Gruell. She didn’t with a major Democratic in this City due to her ties to big energy among other things.

    Chirscee–the story is the right wing’s complete lack of a plan other than to malign Obama because the right hss NOTHING to offer. Like you, they don’t even want the gov to assist in economic and job expansion…The American people favor obama and his policies. The right wing is headed toward extinction…it won’t be long now…..Hopefully, the right will run on Chriscee’s absurd platform……
    hss—-has
    obama—Obama

  • Sam

    The righties prove their ignorance …. Once again !!

    After raising the non-issue of Benghazi for weeks, republicans were asked if they could identify Benghazi on a map, almost 50% of them failed !

    Get this, some of them thought Benghazi is a city in North Korea !!

    I guess as the cattle guider ( Fox News ) directs, they moo along with it.

  • BevAG

    @TCZA

    I really don’t want to gossip, but I just learned that Kristen Powers once dated Anthony Weiner!!!

    I hope this is not a disillusionment. :)

    I hope you’re having a great day……even with this news.

    P.S. If this is old news to everyone, please ignore me. lol I just learned about it, so I’m just getting that shock feeling.
