    Maybe everyone would have been happier if she just lied. I'm looking out on the net and I notice the few who are upset about her not talking about Biden's opinion, were mostly just fine with the previous administration spokesmen lying about those things.

    It's going to be a different administration. That's for sure.

    I’d be happier if she would have been honest. Pretending to answer a question is dishonest.

    How did she lie? Tell us about it.

    There's a difference between getting an answer and getting the answer you want.

    As I said, looking around the net, the few people who think that she wasn't doing the right thing, are often those who were fine with the previous administration blatantly lying to us.

    I suppose they do what they can with what they have.

    As I pointed out above Barb all she had to say was "I don't know. Let me ask and get back with you." But she couldn't bring herself to admit she is not part of the inner circle?.....or maybe just too lazy to find out?......one guess is as good as another.

    Omitting truth is still a lie; she should have admitted she did not know. See#44.

    She didn’t answer the question, but pretended that she did.

    She declined to characterize the President's thinking at that point. Doesn't seem like dishonesty.

    No. Declining to answer is not a dishonesty.

    A dishonesty would be something like...

    "I won the election, but it was stolen from me."
    "I'll release my income tax returns."
    "My inauguration had the highest attendance ever."
    "The pandemic will go away like magic."

    Stuff like that.

    Had she said that, then okay. But even when the reporter asked again (because even he knew that she dodged), she just repeated what everyone knew.

    If only that’s what she had done.

    You know, he’s not in office anymore. At some point, you guys will have to defend Biden and his crew on their own merits.

    She did not 'decline to answer' Barb, she talked around the question because 1) She simply did not have an answer or 2) She did and was not permitted to give it. That is far from honesty.

    Don't hold your breath. 4 years of a 'it's Bush's fault' administration.

    When not lying is lying, and lying is not lying, what can anyone say of honesty?

    I'm thinking that this just looks like what it is.

    And that's not as good as it should be.

    Which is why his supporters should be careful about accusations.

    It's a small thing, but a spokesperson who doesn't blatantly lie seems like a good start.

    Let’s just say that she obfuscated. That’s so much better. But whatever you call it she not-so-skillfully avoided answering the questions.

    Trump really, really messed up. Those half a million dead Americans are a fact that we're just going to have to accept because he bungled his response to the epidemic. Our foreign policy is in shambles. Trusting Putin led to a huge and disastrous hack of federal data by his people. Biden is acting on it, and happily, he's been able to get vaccines out faster than people thought he could. But the damage we took from inattention at the top, is going to take a while to sort out and fix. A lot more like that.

    When a red state fell into a disaster of the republican's own making, Biden just approved disaster aid without asking for thanks or praise. Because that's how a president is supposed to be.

    The President is patching up our alliances, rejoining international efforts, and working with our friends again to make the world better.

    It's going to be a different administration, for which most Americans are very grateful.

    Instead of lying. So I see it as a definite improvement. It's going to be a different administration, now.
