Oops! Jay Carney, Obama forgot to compare notes

President Obama and administration officials have said the decision to cancel White House tours was made by the Secret Service in order to avoid furloughs and other cutbacks necessitated by the sequester’s automatic spending cuts, according to The Hill.

In an interview with ABC, when asked about the tours, Obama said it was “not a decision that went up to the White House.”

Obama insisted that the Secret Service was behind the controversial call to suspend the tours, explaining to House Republicans during a meeting on Capitol Hill Wednesday that “the Secret Service made the decision,” reports Fox News.

Fair enough. Only one problem here… someone forgot to tell White House press secretary Jay Carney, who clearly stated that it was a White House decision to nix the tours, not the Secret Service:

“We had to cancel the tours.  It’s our job to cancel the tours.  They cannot cancel them so — because we run  — this is not a tour of the Secret Service building.  It’s a tour of the White House and the grounds.  And we run the tours and invitations and that process”

While covering the issue Thursday morning, Fox and Friend’s Steve Doocy questioned comments about the Secret Service furloughs: “Nobody has lost their jobs yet. But they stopped the tours last week. What’s up with that?”

    The president is a phony liar. He has no integrity whatsoever and he is unwilling to accept responsibility for the decisions that he makes because he doesn't want to be held accountable for them. It is sad that he cannot be trusted.
