Carney is normally a wordsmith, in that he can say words in a certain order that give off the appearance of actually providing a thought.

In other words – he lies well.

But words failed Mr. Carney yesterday when he tried to explain to a reporter the main difference between Obama’s investment of taxpayer money in Solyndra, and Romney’s past investment of private money in Bain Capital.

The question:

Last thing. If that’s the argument, how is that different from Romney’s argument on Bain Capital, which is that many succeeded and a few failed?

And here is a screen capture that pretty much summarizes the ensuing explanation…

That look of complete bewilderment led to this explanation:
Look, there, there, there is the… the difference in that… your overall view of what your responsibilities are as president, and what your view of the economic future is. And, and the president believes, as he’s made clear, that a president’s responsibility is not just to, uh… those who win, but those who, for an example, in a company where there have been layoffs or a company that has gone bankrupt, that, you know, we have to make sure that those folks have the means to find other employment, that they have the ability to train for other kinds of work, and that’s part of the overall responsibility the president has.

Ohhhh…  Now we get it.

Thanks for the clarification…
