Jay Carney Ineptly Pokes Back At Dog Eating Jokes
Reporter: Has the president -- does he know about the recent back and forth about Republicans picking out this section of his book where he eats dog and making a big issue out of it? And is there any opinion on whether -- does he know about it? Does he think about it? What do you think of it?
Jay Carney: Well, like I said he keeps up with the news. He may know about it. I don't know more than that. I think we're talking about a reference in his book to a period when he was six or seven years old. You know, making a big deal out of it sounds like somebody who is trying to get out of the doghouse on something.
Press corps: "Ohhhhh."
Carney: It just occurred to me to say that. I'll leave it at that.
