Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Jay Carney

You just have to love Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report sometimes. One of his favorite past-times is posting an article about someone, and then digging up and old article showing how the person the first article is about has done a complete about face.

The target du jour is Jay Carney, Press Secretary of possibly the most hypocritical administration in history.

First we have this gem from Real Clear Politics

And I don't think Americans out there would begrudge that notion that the President would spend some time with his family. It is also, as I think anyone who has covered in the past, either in this administration or others, there is no such thing as a presidential vacation. The Presidency travels with you. He will be in constant communication and get regular briefings from his national security team as well as his economic team.

Jay Carney, the press secretary, speaking of Barack Obama.

Before Mr Carney joined the Obama team he was a journalist for Time magazine. He seems to have had a different take on Presidential vacations back then:

A Vacationing Bush Works Hard for His Photo-Ops

Carney is only marginally less annoying than Gibbs, but they're both full of BS. Can you imagine having to put a smiley face on Obama's administration?

Cube, tough when Gibbs is the standard to live by

I'm laughing here at Carney; remember every time Bush left town it was HE'S GOOFING OFF AGAIN! Plus, the golf games, remember? HE'S ALWAYS PLAYING GOLF!
In actuality, Obama's now WAY surpassed Bush with golf playing...anybody heard about THAT?

Carney wasn't a bright Times writer and he's a bumbler now, probably asking himself WHAT DID I DO THIS FOR? every day of the week...... Still, anybody's better than that smarmy sarcastic Bob Gibbs!

You called him a journalist?...His kind makes the word smell bad.

Another sparkling gem of hypocrisy brought to you by so-called 'reporters'.

If you could get $10 for every instance of shameless leftist hypocrisy, you'd probably halve your national debt.

From irresponsible spending to unauthorized wars, the list is too much to list. When a Conservative does it, they're evil and horrible. When a leftist does it, it's just fine.

Everyone who works for Obama is a hypocrite. From the high level advisers to the WH gardeners and custodial staff.

Chuck said...

Z, Obama has played more in a two and a half years than Bush did in eight

Phil, sadly he is a typical journalist

Brooke, right

MK, different rules my friend

LA, the guy that parks the cars...

Drudge does have a knack for exposing hypocrisy.

A pity that more in the center and on the left don't read Drudge every day.

AOW, make it mandatory ;)
