    Snakes And Liars!

    President Barack Obama drew outrage Monday after he described the incident as a gunman who “randomly [shot] a bunch of folks in a deli.”

    But Earnest defended Obama’s answer, saying the attacker didn’t know specifically by name who he was killing, only that it was a Jewish deli.

    “Does the president have any doubt that those terrorists attacked that deli because there would be Jews in that deli?” ABC News reporter Jonathon Karl asked.

    Earnest insisted the president didn’t misspeak when using the word “randomly.”

    “It is clear from the terrorists and the writings that they put out afterward what their motivation was,” Earnest said. “The adverb that the president chose was used to indicate that the individuals who were killed in that terrible, tragic incident were killed not because of who they were, but because of where they randomly happened to be.”

    “They weren’t killed because they were in a Jewish deli though? They were in a kosher deli,” Karl said.

    These individuals were not targeted by name,” Earnest said. “This is the point.”

    Not by name but by religion, were they not?” Karl pressed.

    “Jon, I — there were people other than just Jews who were in that deli,” Earnest said.

    That deli was attacked because it was a kosher deli, it was not any random deli, it was a kosher deli,” Karl said again.

    Earnest said, “No, Jon. I answered the question.”
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Being the president's spokesman has to be one of the worst jobs in the world since you have to sit there and tell absurd lies for your boss that you and everybody else in the room know are lies, all with a straight face.
