And you already know who gets to decide what is and isn’t “legitimate” oversight.

From the Washington Examiner:

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday made an apparent dig at Republicans demanding that more administration officials testify about Obamacare’s woes on Capitol Hill.

“We cooperate with all legitimate congressional oversight,” Carney said, seeming to brush aside many of the current inquiries coming from Republican lawmakers.

However, Carney insisted that he wasn’t dismissing GOP-backed hearings on Obamacare as illegitimate.

“I think everybody here who wasn’t born yesterday has seen questionable congressional oversight in the past,” Carney said.

Carney probably hasn’t dismissed GOP complaints about HealthCare.gov as “illegitimate” yet because he can’t log onto the site to verify for himself that it sucks.

Update: Baghdad Jay couldn’t get out of the press conference fast enough. Carney insisted he couldn’t adequately answer questions about the Obamacare website because he’s “not a computer expert,” so when he was asked if he could bring in somebody who is a computer expert, he walked out and didn’t look back:

During the presser, Carney referred the media to HHS for answers to their questions ten times. They’re slowly trying to change the name from “Obamacare” to “HHS-care.”
