When the Fast And Furious gunwalking scandal broke, following the deaths of border agent Brian Terry and a few hundred Mexicans, President Obama said he didn't know anything about it. Attorney General Eric Holder said he didn't know anything about it either, even though records proved that Holder's immediate underlings at Justice knew about it. Subsequently, it was discovered that Holder lied to Congress about his knowledge of Fast And Furious (in spite of that, he is STILL Obama's Attorney General. Go figure).
When the Benghazi talking points were scrubbed of references to an al-Qaeda affiliated group being behind the attack, and also scrubbed of the CIA's warnings about a coming attack at Benghazi, President Obama said he had nothing to do with it. He didn't know anything about it, even though the talking points were changed 12 times, and even though CIA chief David Petraeus said the altered talking points were "essentially useless" and were the White House's call. Obama also claimed to know nothing about requests for increased security at Benghazi being denied.
When it was discovered that the IRS had been improperly targeting conservative political groups for a couple years, President Obama said he didn't know anything about it. Obama said he just found out about the IRS's nefarious activities last friday, even though Obama's own Press Secretary, Jay Carney, said White House lawyers knew about the IRS investigation in April. It has also been learned that senior IRS officials knew about the targeting long ago.
Now we discover the Justice Department seized the phone records of twenty Associated Press reporters. Right on cue, the White House said it had "no knowledge" of that event either.
It seems nobody ever tells Obama anything about the very government departments under his control. Obama apparently finds out about these things at the same time WE do, when they appear in the news. Have they done away with the Presidential Daily Briefing, or what ? Obama's advisors aren't on his staff, they are in television studios at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and Fox News...but only if you believe the White House's "we know nothing, we see nothing" Sergeant Schultz routine. If Obama is indeed the reincarnation of Sergeant Schultz, what IS his job, aside from making speeches blaming everything on the Republicans ?
For four and a half years, I've been hearing from Obama apologists about how nothing is Obama's fault - not the record deficits on his watch, not the record debt accumulation on his watch, not the highest unemployment rates in decades, not the record levels of government dependency, not the downgrading of America's credit rating, etc. This President is responsible for nothing (except for the rising Dow-Jones industrial average. That was his doing).
Yesterday, Obama hung out with celebs Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel at moviemaker Harvey Weintstein's fundraiser, as part of his endless political campaign.
Maybe instead of schmoozing with the glitterati, Obama should start hanging out with his department heads and find out exactly what's going on in his administration. He seems to have no clue. Fore !!!
