Carney sounds like Gibbs on first day as White House spokesman

Washington (CNN) - With a wish of good luck from his boss, new White House Press Secretary Jay Carney held his first briefing Wednesday and came off very much like the man he replaced.

"Thank you very much," Carney said to greetings of welcome from former journalist colleagues in the White House press corps. "I'm glad to be here."

    If you mean stammering and stuttering and never giving a concrete answer... Than yes, he probably did sound just like marble mouth gibbs..

    This is no different from when news casters have "sit-ins" when they are off. The replacements sound and act just like the person they are replacing!!!
