During an event at Georgetown University, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked how he felt about President Obama getting the “Lie of the Year” award from Politifact in 2013.

Obama repeatedly assured Americans during his push for health care reform that if they liked their health care plan, they could keep it under Obamacare—a statement that was clearly false.

Carney defended Obama’s statement, admitting that he came at it from a “different perspective” but reminding the audience that Obama thought it was true at the time.

“On that particular issue, I think that a lie is one of intent, and the president believed that that’s what the policy would deliver, and when it didn’t and it became clear that it wasn’t and that there were things that needed to be fixed to help those individuals… that it ought to be done,” Carney explained.

Carney said that as a former reporter, however, he recognized good serious reporters who did good work—even though he might disagree with their reports.

Follow up question: Ok, Jay, if Obama didn't know what the law that he was signing would do, then he is incompetent.

So, which is it Jay? A liar, or incompetent?

(We all know it's both).

He sleeps very well I think. He also probably is laughing so hard at how easy it has been to do what he does on a daily basis. He and his family will always be exempt from the damage he and his boss are doing to us.
