CNN

It is just breaking on the ticker at the top of the CNN website.

No idea what spurred this on but it is interesting. More info shall follow.

He's knackered, he said back a bit he would leave in the spring.

Good. I've never like that man. He has a knack for not answering a question and instead dancing around the issues. Good riddance.

Maybe Jay Carney is actually human and couldn't take it any more, you know, he reached his BS limit.

I was beginning to he think he might be a cyborg.

Was this something in the works for a while, or are they just bringing in the new face to be the mouthpiece now.

Problem is, are they not just going to get another person that is going to be the exact same as Carney? I mean same excrement different day right?

Even a person without scruples can only be asked to lie for someone else so much. I'm actually amazed he lasted as long as he did.

I'm sure that he was always the #2 guy. So naturally when #1 leaves, the #2 steps in. I've heard a rumor before that Carney was going to leave. This was months ago ... I'm sure that we'll find out more as the days go on.

INTERESTING THING TO NOTE - This was done on a Friday Afternoon at 2 pm. That's aways when the White House (no matter if it's a democrat or republican) does their dirty data dumps. It's when they release information that they don't want the press talking about .....

hmmmmm ....

I wonder how long before he writes a tell-all book and cashes in on the scandal controversies.

One can only wish that he will own up for his mis-deeds and tell the country what was really going on.

Wish in one hand and S# in the other, see what fills up first is what I was always told. Guess my hands are gonna get dirty yet again.

He probably wants to live a while longer, so not too much scandal info in any book of his to come out.

I don't know what actual conclusions could be drawn from this. Looks like White House Press Secretaries typically serve for 2-3 years.

Wikipedia - White House Press Secretary

Truman had 5
LBJ had 4
Reagan had 3
Clinton had 5
George W. had 4

I'd imagine it's an ulcer-inducing job to be the administration's official spin doctor.

Well, it's been real and it's been fun, but it sure hasn't been real fun.

I'm NOT sorry to see him go.

I wonder how much of a back story there is?
