Claire Shipman – An Unconfident Woman

Posted by madjillmom on April 30, 2014

Claire Shipman, one time White House correspondent, has written a book with co-author Katty Kay, advising women on how to get more confidence. The book is called “The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know”. Claire Shipman is married to Jay Carney, White House spokesman.

So she writes this books advising women on confidence, but she isn’t confident enough to go on Fox News and promote the book. She backed out of a segment with O’Reilly last night leaving her co-author to deal with it.

Last week there was a lot of press about a puff piece on the Shipman/Carney family that showed Communist propaganda posters adorning their home. I just read an article where she and her co-author say Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill are confident women. Shipman then tells us she is a Christine Lagarde groupie. How grounded is that? I would guess that 99.9% of American women would not know who Lagarde is.

Obamacare Claim – 6 in 10 Under $100

Posted by madjillmom on April 1, 2014

Yesterday, in the spin to call Obamacare a big success, Jay Carney told the press that 6 in 10 get it for under $100 a day. He meant to say per month. But honestly, how can we believe this? Where is the statistics that bear this out? I do not believe it for one minute.  They can’t tell us who is signing up, whether they were insured prior to this sign-up, or whether they have paid. How can they tell us that 6 in 100 might or might not pay less than $100 per month. Most of the claims about Obamacare from the administration have been outright lies. Why should we believe this?

Obamacare Lies

Posted by madjillmom on October 9, 2013

There have been claims made throughout the entire process of passing Obamacare. Most of those claims are lies. Foolish utterances that never were possible, thrown out to appease the press and the stupid. Remember the one about if you like your plan, you can keep your plan? How about the one about your premiums going down $2500 per year. Possibly the only truth uttered by Dems during the fight was this being the first step toward socialized medicine. How about the lies about there are no taxes in Obamacare that would hit the middle class (those making under $250,000) until they had to go before the Supreme Court and call it a tax.

So now, we have the ongoing saga of lies from Obama and his administration. A few days ago, Kathleen Sebelius told two lies. One was that she didn’t know how many people have actually signed up for Obamacare. She has to know that. Does she think we are stupid? Yes, she does. Then she told us there is no evidence that Obamacare is making employers shift to part-time workers. Once again, she does know that this is a consequence of Obamacare, she just can’t admit it. Everyone knows, but the Obama administration would rather put their collective heads into the sand rather than examine the cause. Jay Carney tells us he doesn’t know how many have signed up. The same with Jack Lew, Treasury Secretary. All lying to our faces. The administration continues to tell us that the problems with are only due to popularity rather than the obvious inept design. They like to tell us that Apple has problems, too. Obamacare is not Apple. No one will get fired because of the disasterous design. At Apple, someone would be packing up their desk and leaving the building under the escort of the guards. The MSM press can’t ignore this too much longer, though they did a good job yesterday during the President’s press conference. When will they be held accountable for lying to us? Never, it worked in Benghazi. When will Obama be forced to tell us his signature achievement passed only by Dems is a big disaster?

The IRS, Resignations, and Lois Lerner

Posted by madjillmom on May 22, 2013

Today, Lois Lerner pleaded the 5th before the House Committee. Jay Carney was asked why she still has a job. Carney says the President thinks it is better to get to the bottom of the facts before firing people. What changed since last week? Last week, the President was “outraged” and demanded the resignation of the Acting head of the IRS. He didn’t know the facts last week either. After all, he just learned about the scandal the Friday before. He made the stupid head of the IRS a sacrificial lamb without knowledge of who, what, or why on this IRS scandal. He fired a guy two weeks before that guy was leaving anyway. Oh, but this week, he can’t do anything without all the facts. Get your stories straight, Jay and Barack.

Could Lois Lerner have more info that can’t come out? Is she guaranteed a paycheck as long as she keeps her mouth shut? Or is she the newest sacrificial lamb turning on the spit, basting while the White House gets it act together?
