I predict that when Jay Carney writes his book — probably about two years from now — this is one of the moments he will describe as cringe-worthy. Check out the president’s spokesman’s smirk as he lamely denies that Mr. Obama’s trip this week to Ohio and North Carolina — battleground states that are critical to his re-election campaign — is not a campaign trip. Grow up, Mr. Carney. While you’re playing games with the press, North Carolina’s unemployment rate hovers at 10 percent in the wake of Mr. Obama’s disastrous economic policies.
