Off the reservation: Former WH spokesman Jay Carney sees no good outcome for Dems in 2014

Former White House spokesman Jay Carney might be inching his way toward honesty after all.

In his new incarnation as a talking head for CNN, rather than a lying mouthpiece for the Obama administration, Carney was on “State of the Union” on Sunday discussing his party’s prospects for the November elections.

“The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party,” said Carney.

”You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats, except for barely holding onto the Senate.”

Well, he’s still got some cheerleader in him apparently, since the chances of current Majority Leader Harry Reid maintaining his stranglehold on the Senate are diminishing almost daily as the possibility of a Republican Senate takeover grow.

And he’s still got some denial issues to work out, since he apparently thinks even taking over the Senate might be bad for the GOP.

“The problem for Republicans, if they win, is Americans begin to think that ‘we hate Congress’ and it is now clear that one party is in control of Congress,” he said.

But Carney would have cut his own forked tongue out before admitting the Dems are facing defeat in November when he was still in the White House. So for him to even begin to be shaking out of progressive fog and seeing reality after his Obamaland stint is encouraging for anyone who cares about recovery.

He’s taken the first step and admitted there’s a problem.
