Obama 'Not at all' embarrassed by Release of Open Mic Comments
Advertisements [?]
The White House has no problem with President Obamas comments in Chicago that were caught on an open microphone and quickly circulated through the media sphere. Asked aboard Air Force One if the president was embarrassed by the comments, White House press secretary Jay Carney said not at all.

ABC News reports Carney said the comments, including harsh words about Paul Ryan, whom the president had praised in public, did not conflict with anything the president had said:

Theres nothing he said that contradicts anything he said in public, Carney said, I think what he said in that session youre talking about and the things that hes said in more public forums have been entirely consistent.

Carney insisted to reporters the open mic incident was a miscommunication, nothing more than that, and concluded its not a problem, its not an issue.
