As I’ve been hosting one of my nephews this week, I haven’t had as much time to blog as I would like. With that intelligent and insightful young man, I did catch a bit of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s press conference yesterday and we both wondered why if, as Carney asserted, there was nothing to see there, the president was asserting executive privilege to prevent Congress from seeing anything.
“What really grates?” Moe Lane asks and answers:
Jay Carney visibly not remembering the name of US Border Agent Brian Terry. Who, to remind everyone, had Operation Fast & Furious guns show up at the site of his murder . . . .
Jake Tapper had to feed Carney the name. That pretty much tells you everything that you need to know about how seriously Carney is taking this case, how much preparation Carney did before going out to answer questions about the case – and pretty much how seriously you can take Carney’s canned observations about the case, too.
