Desperation: Carney ties Bush, Romney to IRS scandal and Benghazigate [video]!/davidharsanyi/status/332944988210069505

Well, nearly three hours after he was supposed to start, Jay Carney finally got around to giving his daily press briefing. And more than four years after President Obama took office, Carney is blaming George W. Bush for Obama-era problems.

When asked about the IRS’ admission that it targeted conservative groups before the 2012 election, Carney wasted no time in linking the IRS official in charge to the Bush administration:

Carney: The IRS isn’t the WH….but the guy who was running it at the time was appointed by Bush.

The IRS is an “independent organization,” but apparently not independent enough to be free from Bush’s iron grip.

Carney just blamed Bush in reference to IRS “previous administration”

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) May 10, 2013

I’m sorry what did He just say about the “previous Administration”?

That Bush. Investigating Tea Party groups while pretending to paint dogs. Will his perfidy never end?

Bush Derangement Syndrome’s so nice, Jay came down with it twice!

Carney: No, we won’t release those emails to the public.Mentions Bush.

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) May 10, 2013

And Carney just blamed Bush for the second time in this presser. Amazing. #benghazi

FFS he’s taking a shot at Bush again.

Blaming Bush. It never gets old for these people does it?

Man! That Bush … still pulling the strings after all these years!

RT @bccohan: RT @logandobson: George Bush is apparently the most powerful man in the Obama administration

— Heather (@hmfearny) May 10, 2013

Dubya is clearly the greatest living president. I mean, how many WH alums can affect policy *five years out*?!

— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) May 10, 2013

But why stop at blaming former presidents? Why not throw rocks at presidential candidates, too?


— Dina Fraioli (@DinaFraioli) May 10, 2013

Oh yes he did.

Oh my God. Carney is now attacking Romney for the press release from months ago. This is a freaking disaster.

— Sunny (@sunnyright) May 10, 2013

He asserted that Mitt Romney’s post-Benghazi press release kicked off an “ongoing effort” to “try to take political advantage out of these deaths.”

Romney?? WTF?

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) May 10, 2013

Romney hit.

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) May 10, 2013

And Jay Carney just threw in Mitt Romney #benghazi

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) May 10, 2013

Romney’s fault.

— T. Becket Adams (@BecketAdams) May 10, 2013

Carney just invoked Romney.I guess Bush wasn’t available.
