    Carney invokes birtherism in response to scandal questions

    Struggling with a reporter about which Republican concerns are and are not legitimate, White House spokesman Jay Carney said that if reporters are going to ask about every issue, they should include President Obama’s birth certificate.

    Carney was defending senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer, who on Sunday described the scandals Obama is dealing with as “partisan fishing expeditions.”

    Carney argued that the focus on the Benghazi talking points was “provably and demonstrably political,” and that Republicans had made “outlandish statements” about the IRS targeting conservatives “and tried to politicize this right away.” When CBS News’ Major Garrett asked whether questions about the AP investigation were partisan, Carney acknowledged that Congress might have “legitimate questions” on that or other issues.

    So Garrett followed up and asked if questions related to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s fundraising for the Affordable Care Act were also legitimate. Carney grew irritated and responded by referencing conspiracy theories about the president’s birthplace.

    “You know, we could go down the list of questions — we could say, what about the president’s birth certificate? Were that — was that legitimate?” Carney responded.

    He went on to answer the question, saying that there was precedent for what Sebelius is doing and that it was within her authority “to encourage support for educational efforts related to health care.”

    I guess the point is that questioning anything about this President is not permissible.

    He is not on my Wall of Fame, but he makes a very good point and I completely agree. Questioning and drilling the President and his spokesman about wild-ass conspiracy theories is a ridiculous waste of time and an undemocratic belittling of the role of the press in our democracy. Disgusting.

    Right-wing hacks and Fox News who have no concern for the truth, or with keeping the public informed of the truth, but instead focus totally and shamefully on promulgating distortion and lies for sheer political gain at the expense of America and our democracy.

    Moreover, they are more than willing to destroy American heroes and great public servants, and desecrate American dead, in the process. Again, for pure political gain in there attempts to create falsehoods.

    Absolutely unprofessional, shameful, and unAmerican. Not to mention inefficient distractions and waste of valuable resources/time for our executive and legislative branch, for wild-ass conspiracies that only the Fox brainwashed viewer bots believe (because they want to believe and do not let facts get in the way).

    One of these days Fox News will go down. They are already extremely discredited. Just a manner of time, as the wind and demographics change, Faux News will be recognized by the vast majority as the true laughingstock and degenerates they are.

    Fox is the top cable news network with more viewers than all the others combined.

    When you figure out what "right wing" is, then you should go back to using the term.

    I wonder how you felt about questioning Nixon or Reagan?

    I thought Sam Donaldson went overboard sometimes. And I thought the left was unreasonable sometimes with Bush Jr. Yet, there has never been been the inundation of wild-ass conspiracy theories, as is done by the right-wing and Faux News today. Not anywhere close. The survivalist nuts like you Norm now have a wide voice in Faux News.

    Don't you find it curious how all the talking heads that put down Obama and the DNC flourish in ratings even though the DNC seems to dominate politics?

    That in itself seems like a conspiracy topic.

    I don't recall Fox being caught editing audio tapes (like MSNBC) or omitting important parts of quotes to change the meaning (like NY Times).

    Fox is the most watched news network in the United States. So...no.

    How does it make you feel when Democrats come out and express the same concerns as Republicans do about Obama? Does that register with you at all? Or have the Democrats just been brainwashed?

    Or injecting themselves into presidential debates to defend an incumbent president (CNN).
