President Obama has announced that WH Press Secretary Jay Carney will step down next month.
The announcement came only hours after Obama announced he had accepted Eric Shinseki’s resignation as VA Secretary.
I, for one, will not miss Carney’s smarmy disposition especially when he said last year that “Benghazi happened a long time ago.” When he made that statement it had been exactly 232 days since terrorists affiliated with al Qaeda murdered four Americans.
Carney will be replaced by Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest. I can only hope he lives up to his name, but given the unserious nature of President Obama I doubt there will be much improvement in the quality of the statements eminating from the White House Press Room.
