Jay Carney holds the position of White House press secretary — a job considered by many to be one of the hardest and most demanding in any administration. It has been held by such illustrious figures as Dana Perino, Ari Fleischer, Dee Dee Myers and, back in President Bill Clinton’s day, one George Robert Stephanopoulos.
As press secretary, the job is to be an administration’s public face, and words must be chosen carefully, because the slightest misstep can come back to haunt both the representative and the administration.
So, to help out during this election season, The Daily Caller will be providing some light-hearted coaching for the Obama administration’s latest press secretary.
First, Carney needs some new lines — one can’t just keep recycling the same phrases day to day. Also, for all the mileage that this administration has made from “blaming Bush,” one really does need to steer clear of using lines favored by the previous resident of the White House.
One more little tip: Try not to say “um” or “er” so often.
Hope this helps.
