This is interesting. ABC news reporter Jonathan Karl pointed out the truth to White House spokesman Jay Carney during a news briefing. I’m sure Carney didn’t appreciate it. The topic was the debt ceiling and the Republican plan to vote on a spending bill that doesn’t include funding for Obamacare. No Republican is talking about shutting down the government, that’s all coming from the White House. President Obama has repeatedly said he refuses to negotiate on the debt ceiling. An exasperated Karl asked Carney “How is that tenable? Is the White House really willing to risk default?” Good questions.
I won’t go so far as to say the media has turned on Obama, however I have read quite a few liberal op-eds that have been anything but flattering to their once beloved president. But it sure would be nice to just see more honesty in reporting, and more questions like these. I know, I won’t hold my breath.
Via The Blaze where there’s more on the back and forth between Carney and Karl.
Oh, and have you ever seen someone who appears to hate his job as much as Jay Carney? If looks could kill!
