Jay Carney: “We’ve spoken repeatedly about upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution”

Really, Jay?

President Obama’s administration “questions the judgment” of publishing cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed, given the possibility that it could cause unrest in the Middle East.

“We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Mohammed, and, obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today during the press briefing. “We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many — and have the potential to be inflammatory –  but we’ve spoken repeatedly about upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution.”

This from an administration that has spent four years trying to bully, intimidate and silence critics.

They talk the talk while this guy does the perp walk.

    Could Jay point me to the forthright defense of the First Amendment in either the President’s or the Secretary of State’s statements on Libya. (As you’ll recall, they didn’t bother to address the Egyptian protests.) They both seem rather reticent. Have there been any official statements on the continuing riotous protests, in various places all over the muslim world? Not that I’m aware of.
