Jay Carney To Jon Karl: 'I Get It!' (VIDEO)

Jay Carney To Jon Karl: 'I Get It!' (VIDEO)

Commented Nov 6, 2013 at 14:29:46 in Media

“I like that two types of people seem to have responded to this:

People who hate Obama for every reason that isn't why I think he's been a bad President. (i.e. folks who think he's lying about a wesite, vs myself, who is upset that he murders children with drones)

People who feel the need to counterbalance any comment about the current administration being bad, by mentioning the previous administration was worse.

And by 'like', I of course mean, 'am dismayed to see'.”

“I don't think there is anything wrong with prostitution, provided proper oversight exists to protect professionals working in that industry.

I have huge problems with lying about spying, and drone strikes.

I should have found a way to point out that I wasn't upset about a website, so much as Jay Carney's deal.”

“I was, actually. And that was horrid, too. Forgive me if I consider the thousands dying from drone strikes the administration doesn't like talking about to be pretty horrifying, as well.

I'm upset about larger things than technical difficulties with a tech roll out.”

“Worth noting - saying you expect a website to be functioning, and then it not doing so, is not lying. It's disappointing, sure, and it must be really annoying to explain, but it isn't lying.

Lying is having 'no prior knowledge' of endless drone murders, and programs that spy on your countrypeople. People are upset with this administration for the wrong things.”

“I think Jay Carney is one of the world's worst humans. I cannot imagine how he sleeps at night, the endless lies, partial truths, and uppity deflections.

Oh, probably on his giant pile of money. That's probably how he sleeps.”

“I just can not agree with your comment. How are we going to come together as a nation when opinions are so personal and rabid and destructive? Comparison are odious but necessary here. Jay Carney is so much above the Bush communication people in every facet of the job. How could he be "one of the world's worst humans" when he presents the president well, speaks well and brings dignity to the office?.”

“He's doing his job, like all press secretaries and spokespersons do.”

Dieter Zerressen on Nov 4, 2013 at 21:44:31

“Wow, you apparently were not awake during the Bush Administration. Did you see his press secretaries at working explaining WMD's. I'm still waiting for us to find any. 4,400 soldiers died due to those lies. How many have died because the website isn't working yet?”

“Jake, if I, for one minute, thought that the gov's intention was saving the civilians of Syria, I wouldn't be decrying Kerry for supporting the White House talking points. 
But I question the motives of the administration, question their failure to act while 100,000 Syrians were killed these last two years, question the efficacy of a 'show of force', historically, in causing conflicts to cease. I seriously question the capacity of the US military to do anything without gross collateral damage. I question why we have leapt right past humanitarian effort, to talking about how striking against Assad is somehow 'national security'. 
I want the slaughter to stop - but I don't think that we are doing anything that will stop it. And I expect better from Kerry in this theatre. ”

“What a disappointment. I don't know what happened to John Kerry, but he is not the man I have supported for all these years - I recall a person of conviction, with a sense of America's place in the world. This...this talking head is an embarrassment to the Commonwealth.”

“35 years for embarrassing the government. Nothing more. If events since Manning's arrest have proven anything, it is that the greatest threat the administration perceives is being watched, and the administration will do anything it can to stop us from paying attention to what it is doing.

In time, Bradley Manning will be taught as a hero, who shed the first light on a dark, dark era in US history - a divisive figure, who sacrificed self to make the populace aware of the atrocities its government was perpetrating in their name.”

Joel F Rodriguez on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:56:51

“Dear Everyone 'Debunking' The Findings Reported In This Article,

You really should read the whole article before beginning to type a response. Most of the whole 'but, if you double wages, you double costs!' hysteria is addressed before you even got to the poll.”

Errors in McDonald's Wage Analysis

Commented Jul 30, 2013 at 12:46:56 in Business

“Except, as this shows, it's not a one-to-one increase - especially when you consider that McDonald's probably doesn't need to double their CEO's 20 million dollar salary, even though that was taken into account. In the article alone, it addresses that McDonald's costs for labor constitute 17% of the whole - in what universe do you get 'double the labor, double the cost'?

The whole point is that paying workers does not, and has never, slowed an economy down. Returning buying power at the bottom end, where each dollar's significance is magnified by the immediacy of use - a metric that wouldn't be broken, even by doubling wages for most Americans - lies at the base of any meaningful economic growth.”

“The article was stipulating what would occur if you doubled wages, far, far more than the minimum increases being proposed. And, if you double the salaries of the workers, the price goes up by less than 25% (68 out of 399 is not 30%) - that would, in fact, create a great deal of extra spending cash for that work force.”

“Huh. Who knew Hayden Panettiere was actually Barbie IRL?

If we want to move forward as a people, getting rid of the idea of Barbie all together - i.e. an idealized icon for little children to worship and compare themselves to - would be a good start. But if we can't get rid of it, making that icon realistic is a nice place to start.”

“Considering that the issue with polygamy was nothing to do with multiple consenting adults being involved in a marriage, and everything to do with the abuse and commodifying of young girls, I'm not sure Gohmert really understands the issue.

There are probably some considerations needed for taxes if we allow multiple consenting adults to get married to one another, but I don't actually think it's a problem - certainly no more flawed than, you know, marriage in general, which is one of the most charmingly unsuccessful practices in American history.”
