    He's all LIED out. I mean how many lies and fairy tales can one person be expected to tell, over and over and over. If he ever writes a book and tells the truth, look out!!! He is going to have to do that to regain any level of credibility.

    What a pity! He was the right man for the job. Nevertheless, it is good to make changes. Those reporters who attend the daily briefing, were no longer respecting him. They treated him as if they are on the same level. Let the new person come and it will take them time to get used to him.

    $20 says he shows up as the new highly paid liar for Hillary Clinton. They need to keep the wagons tightly circled so the truth never gets out. He knows where too many bodies are buried to let him too far out of their control.

    Carney's replacement will need to be a very good liar...how about Hillary?

    He's taken enough abuse trying to cover for this administration. Can't blame him at all.

    I wish him all the best and a full recovery at the deprogramming clinic.

    Don't worry. The truth will get out as soon as Captain America sneaks into Area-51 and find out the Real Truth stored in the locker next to the Obama Birth Certificate storage safe.

    Now that they have been CRUSHED by Turtle McConnell, can't wait to see Tom Tillis, Sheldon Adelson, Rupert Mourdoch, Karl Rove, Grover Norquist and the GOP stuff Jeb Bush down the tea party's throats EXACTLY like they stuffed Romney down.

    I kinda liked the kid. He's a smart man. I think the dollar signs are calling him, though. Don't be too surprised if he resurfaces working for Hillary2016.

    Obama needs to get somebody cool like James Carvelle or Alan Combs to be WHPS. Don`t bring in another twerp like Carney.

    Kid? Hardly. An adult that should know better than to lie like he did.

    Smart man?? Not sure, but he does show a good talent for fairy tales and fantasy. A future Grimm maybe.
