The administration is still their paid liar of their spokesperson.
Picture behind he still making up things about what happens in calling this local -- There -- over the weekend that hope he's OK he's a liar it's.
-- that that's amazing.
-- I'm I'm not gonna get into -- back and forth with -- -- That was white house Press Secretary Jay Carney responding to congressman -- rice's latest comment about him being on the Obama administration's -- paid liar.
This is safe throughout the past several weeks of trying to defend the president and the White House from various scandals.
Carney has done well more harm than good here with reaction to this a much more Fox News contributor Liz Cheney here.
Legend we do what is first your reaction -- -- comments.
You know I think Jay Carney and a very tough position he -- -- president do the best you can say about him is that he's on acquainted with the truth.
And Jay Carney is in a position where.
You know he's had to go out now he said things that are demonstrably false with great confidence that nobody in the White House knew about the IRS that.
Investigation -- was under way we learn that wasn't true.
Sort of day after day after day and it seems to me are two possibilities here one is.
The that he's out there saying things that aren't too and he's unaware that the things he's saying are not true.
You know in which case it seems that the honorable thing to do at this point is resign.
If you don't have the -- that you need if the president United States Abbas has -- Jack to say things that are not true.
You know -- he's got to be considering that the honorable -- his resignation.
On the other hand perhaps he knows what he's saying isn't -- and -- that lead you down an entirely different path but.
His credibility at this point has really had been severely damaged as has the attorney generals as as a -- the United States does have many others in this administration.
What do you take Adam -- statement that nobody in the White House knew then we found out the White House counsel them then she told the chief of staff.
-- the biggest news came the came out this Stephanie -- met with the IRS chairman.
That's part of the political campaign is she's a deputy campaign manager.
Again we were told by -- that never happened.
-- it there it's absolutely.
In ex applicable that the IRS commissioner would be at the White House a 157.
Times I mean most administration's.
Most honest administration's making 88 big effort to separate out what's happening in the White House from the IRS.
The IRS is those being independent agency we're not supposed to be a situation where the president is using our -- -- -- enemies.
And when you've got members of his political campaign meeting with the head of the IRS you know there's some -- Very fishy going on.
The but I -- -- say you know people should look at this frankly those of us who are conservatives those of us are patriots you know people those of us who.
Agree with what the Tea Party stands for.
You know and and take comfort in the fact that the administration would not be targeting.
If they weren't worried about our power if they were worried about the power of these organizations to make real change and frankly to interfere with their plans for the nation so.
Yet it it should give people hope in terms of of our ability to -- to affect the future here.
Let me let me go to this issue -- the 157 visits by the head of the -- -- to the White House because it in the bush years there was one visit.
So if -- one -- -- but as a comparison Hillary went to visit Obama in the White House 43 times.
Tim Geithner 48 times the IRS.
Commissioner a 157.
And -- -- off by saying well I went to an Easter egg roll.
How damaging or alarming -- that number especially compared to the bush years.
Well it you can't explain it there's no honest good explanation for it.
I think what it goes to also shot is that air against in this administration arrogance of this president you know it doesn't seem to matter to him if the people who work for him lie.
You know when you start to see things like this New York Times report today about Eric Holder -- being potentially in danger of losing his job.
It's not because he's not tell the truth it's because he's now become a political liability.
So you know the president basically seem to have operated as though boy let's just get away with as much as we can get away with the media is not gonna hold us accountable.
You know we are somehow above the law where somehow above accountability.
And at the end of the day so what if we get hot you know get away with that and I think that you know they finally now are coming to see.
That they really the lot does apply to them.
-- -- see well will continue to see that what do you see that similar pattern armed with fast and furious with paying Ghazi the IRS scandal in the targeting a journalist do you see a pattern.
No question I mean if you go back to Eric -- career.
-- as attorney general you know.
Coming in first of -- and easing up on the prosecution of the new black Panthers for their voter intimidation then saying he's gonna prosecute CIA agents.
-- leading -- charge to bring terrorist into the United States.
You know goes on and on and on hiring lawyers to work in his department who had volunteered their time to defends terrorists to defend people who taken up arms against the United States.
You know this is the man you.
-- they used to make me sick got maybe he's in over his head.
But -- seen again and again and again at disregard for the law that's very dangerous frankly in a constitutional republic.
In a place where he's supposed to be you know the chief law enforcement officer reporting to the president.
-- Liz Cheney was good to see -- thanks for being -- us.
You -- John thank you coming up.
