President Obama seems to be on a roll especially today. This morning after meeting with the Veteran Affairs Secretary he announced the Secretary’s resignation. Then later in the day as WH Press Secretary Jay Carney began his daily briefing with reporters Obama showed up and abruptly announced Carey’s resignation effective mid-June. Of course the VA Secretary’s resignation came as no surprise as he’s been under increasing pressure to resign as major scandal has been brewing within the VA concerning a gross lack of healthcare for America’s vets. But the resignation of Carney was a surprise to most including most WH reporters. If you look at the pictures of Carney as he sits quietly listening to the POTUS and if you look at Obama’s face somehow the expressions do not match the fine words. As Obama enters the Press Room he looks disturbed to say the least. As he announces Carney’s resignation Carney appears frustrated and possibly on the verge of breaking down with tears. So what is going on here?
Some have suggested that Carney is tired of “lying for” and/or “covering for” an incompetent POTUS. Others have suggested that Carney has long been thinking about tendering his resignation. His temporary replacement will be going with Obama to Europe instead of Carney btw. Whatever the case just from the photos of both Carney and Obama something appears not right. Both appear frustrated. Perhaps Carney grew tired of covering for Obama and has simply had enough.
