    Obama, new spokesman share 'no drama' approach

    WASHINGTON — Barack Obama's new spokesman may be just the right guy for the president's approach to governing: Obama doesn't like drama and Jay Carney doesn't seem to invite it.

    A month into his tenure as Obama's press secretary, Carney doesn't appear to be looking for fight each time he enters the daily press briefing. Unlike his feisty predecessor, Robert Gibbs, Carney hasn't spent his career in partisan politics — his main experience is as a reporter — and his style is more measured.

    "He is not part of the journalistic culture of hyping conflicts," said Walter Isaacson, the former editor of Time magazine, where Carney worked for two decades. "I think he will be disdainful of those who try to hype conflict unfairly because he spent so much of his career being intellectually honest."

    So a tepid response to events has been renamed "Low Profile Response" now eh?

    B.S. meter pegged.

    That was my thought exactly. He doesn't want to stand for anything or be held to anything...so they are going to push this "no drama" approach BS now. One thing he doesn't want to have to tolerate is being "unpopular".
