Jay Carney waffles on ‘yes or no’ Shinseki question

At the daily briefing, he could not bring himself to answer ABC reporter Jon Karl’s straightforward query: “Does the president have confidence in Secretary [of Veterans Affairs Eric] Shinseki?”

Carney waffled, dodging the question time and time again, as the RealClearPolitics video clearly reveals.
