At Monday’s White House press conference, Jay Carney took an approach not unlike yesterday’s Durbin strategy when faced with a question that he didn’t want to address: Don’t answer it.

Transcript by way of the Weekly Standard:

Q All right. I wanted to follow up on this young woman’s question about the high unemployment out in places like Colorado, all around the country, especially in the minority communities — exceptionally high unemployment. And when there is government workers who may be furloughed, millions of Americans unemployed, and family budgets that have been cut, how does the President justify lavish vacations and a golf trip to Florida at taxpayer expense? And does he plan to cut back on his travel?

MR. CARNEY: I can tell you that this President is focused every day on policies that create economic growth and help advance job creation. We have presided over the past three years over an economy that’s produced over 6.3 million private sector jobs, and we have more work to do. And this President’s number-one priority is growth and job creation.

Shorter Carney answers to those two questions: “He doesn’t have to,” and “no.”
