ABC Host Confronts Jay Carney Over Obama’s Empty Promises From Last Year’s State of the Union Address

White House press secretary Jay Carney was knocked on his heels during an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” trotting out old excuses for President Barack Obama’s lackluster economic record as Washington prepares for Tuesday’s State of the Union address. Carney sat down for his first Sunday show interview — and a surprisingly tough one at that — with ABC’s Jon Karl. The reporter opened with a fastball, highlighting a new poll showing just 37 percent have confidence in Obama’s leadership. “How can the president lead when barely a third trust his ability to make the right decisions?” “Jon, I think what we saw last year in 2013,” Carney began, “was a Washington that did not deliver for the American people. And the president sees this as a year of action, to work with Congress where he can and to bypass Congress where necessary, to lift folks that wanna come up into the middle class.”
