Skip to comments.Obama: Vast Majority of Federal Employees Are Not Boneheads
Posted on 06/27/2014 9:11:56 AM PDT by LibWhacker
President Obama declared Thursday that 99 percent of federal employees are not boneheads.
"Are there some federal workers who do some boneheaded things? Absolutely, Obama said at a town hall meeting in Minneapolis, Politico reported.
The president recalled something that former Defense Secretary Robert Gates told him: One thing you should know, Mr. President, is that at any given moment on any given day, somebody in the federal government is screwing up. That, said Obama, is "is true because there are 2 million employees If 99 percent of the folks are doing the right thing and only 1 percent arent, thats still a lot of people.
Gates' remarks clearly made an impression on Obama. In Sept. 2012, he also noted publicly that "at any moment in the federal government, there will be people who do dumb things."
The 1 percent principle of boneheadedness probably puts the federal government on par with any other large organization. Of course, it also means that at any particular point in time, in some corner of government, somebody is doing something like pooping in the hallway.
I'd like a moment for rebuttal.
Can someone prove it? We have lots of evidence to the contrary.

Just the democRAT ones.
No, they are incompetent dumb-f*cks.
And many are just plain crooks.
Bad drivers don’t know they are bad drivers.
Stupid people don’t know they are stupid
That hasn’t been my experience.
So he’s admitting that the 1%ers at the top of the government food chain are doing the boneheaded actions.
Well, that statement assures me that 99% are making a bad name for the 1% who aren’t...
We’ve come a long way from not a smidgen of corruption.
OK, so 48-49% of Federal employees ARE boneheads.
Do boneheads plead the 5th, destroy evidence and lie under oath? Or do criminals?
So now “our fearless leader” has a new title??
“The Bone(hea)d Queer In Charge”?
O is a commie who supports a caliphate...that’s all it takes
LOL, it worked!
“Vast majority = 51-52%
OK, so 48-49% of Federal employees ARE boneheads.”
However, 100% of Federal Gubment employees are “Trough Feeders”.
I notice he isn’t claiming they aren’t sociopaths.
Apparently, obamA has never talked to a federal employee
This is nothing but his attempt to downplay/soften the scandals.
“These weren’t partisan nefarious acts. They were just a bunch of dumb mistakes committed by boneheads.”
A bone head is a dick heat on a possume! O’ eyes are black. Hair has white around the eyes. Nuffisaid!
Good point! One percent are boneheads. That leaves open the possibility that the other 99% are criminals.
- tippy-toe thru the sandtraps
The moron at the head of it certainly is a bonehead.
Like Dennis Miller, I see no basis for the claims that Obama is “brilliant”.
I’m not as easily impressed as the clowns in the lamestream media, who identify each other by sniffing each other’s diplomas the way dogs sniff each others asses.
Obama: Vast Majority of Federal Employees Are Not Boneheads
If you count the all the low level people who mean well and are tryign despite the psychopathic upper level management who are grafting at the top, then YES, barry;s staement is technically correct....
Vast majority defined as 51%, I could see that, the problem is that the well meaning but trapped at the bottom because they actually try to do their job usually quit in disgust at some point while the really power hungry bastards who lie will move to the top like the VA people at the top who decided they deserve a bonus.
Also if you count the Millitary as Federal Employees as well then the Majority of Federal Employees are most certainly NOT BONEHEADS...
The MINORITY of Federal Employees are most certainly BONEHEADS, those being the leadership class in the upper levels of Government agencies and Millitary Generals that Obama hasn’t fired because they tow his party line...
Worthless blood sucking leaches lwatching the clock, doing as little as possible til retirement is more honest.
Boy, you can say that again! You've got to wonder about someone who would say Obama is brilliant in the same way you would wonder about someone who said they were Napoleon.
Barry probably counted Millitary Members as Federal Employess in his mind when he made this statement....
Which means technically he is correct...
So then 49% - 10%, especially those in leadership of federal Agencies are most certainly boneheaded beer-o-craps....
Do historical figures count?
I wonder if Repubs/Tea Partiers even get hired at all?
At first blame the person who was in the job before you. It was all Bush's fault!
Then blame it on your staff. I would have never said ObamaCare was great if I had known what a disaster this Computer website was going to be. The FBI/ATF were not careful enough in Fast & Furious. Lack of security at Benghazi was a mistake. The IRS/Tea Party thing was some rouge agents in Cincinnati. Well it was the defense Secretary who was really responsible for the exchange of prisoners with the terrorists. I didn't know that those running the VA were actually killing people with their neglect, I will seek the resignation of a scape-goat.
He wore out the Blame Bush line. He now understands that “his administrations nearly continuous failures” have worn out the blame his staff line.
Now some of the staff are no longer hiding the Administrations sins. If that continues, things will be leaked to the media of such an explosive nature, that the media might actually publish them. The Big Zero needs to make nice with his staff. It is long overdue, but hopefully the government employees will see through this.
Are boneheads ever punished?
You're going to need more time.
Yeah, the ones that aren’t stupid are evil.
so by the limp-wristed facist’s assessment, at any given time 20,000 federal workers are screwing up
Coming from a complete bonehead, I find the message less than reassuring.
Obama is going to purge the stupid from the gift of his tyranny.
The flip side is that he knows at least a portion of federal workers are boneheads and has no plan for dealing with the problem.
Obama is not part of that 99% he speaks of.
How about parasites, leeches, carbuncles, barnacles, fungi, ticks, lice, fleas, mites ..
Just the leadership
Proudly supporting the war fighter for almost 25 years
The 1 percent must be the only ones working.
If Obama said it, its probably not true
