Obama: No more 'finger-pointing' (LOL)
Politico ^ | 1/5/2010 | JOSH GERSTEIN & CAROL E. LEE

Posted on 01/05/2010 12:03:41 PM PST by markomalley

President Obama will deliver a stern warning to his appointees at a meeting Tuesday afternoon that he won’t tolerate efforts by the CIA, the State Department and others to shift blame for the recent intelligence foul-up to other parts of the government, said spokesman Robert Gibbs.

“We are going to move beyond agency finger-pointing,” Gibbs told reporters. “The president will not find acceptable a response where everybody gets in a circle and points at someone else. The American people won’t accept that.”

In other words, "figure out some way that we can blame Bush for this one, also"

Of course, his media minions will propagate that endlessly.

Naturally, we can expect Rhambo to point out that they should not let a good crisis go to waste, so expect them to use this as an excuse to start profiling veterans groups and gun owners (the chief terrorist threat today).

Oh after they have attacked practically every agency in America, and Bush for 3 years.....

America is sick of Obama’s finger pointing, acting like a tattletale, immature brat. So now he deems, they won’t do these things.

BS.

Obama is a failure that if we had an honest, objective media, would literally probably have impeachment hearings scheduled for treason, incompentence and malice towards his country, if he isn’t Kenyan.

And the net result will be, nothing!

The American people are wising up to this fraud of a President. The so-called system failure only occurred after Obama got into office so therefor it's Obama’s failure and the people know it.
It has been 8 years since any US bound airline incident so people just aren't going to buy the blame Bush crap anymore.

He will, no doubt, point his finger at them as he says:

“Let me be perfectly clear, the unprecedented level of finger pointing you people have engaged in over the past week will NOT be tolerated in the future... unless Mr. Soros calls and says it’s okay to keep it up...”

I completely agree that 0Bam will try to spin this upon the Bush administration. Notwithstanding that nonsense, there is a far far greater and looming problem. 0Bam may be smart, eloquent, yadda yadda yadda, but he hasn’t got a clue about handling real crises. His sycophants are no help, their world is political back stabbing and they completely lack common sense reality and experience. There must be a lot of highly professional and qualified folks from government agencies that have outstanding ideas who would handle the problems. Unfortunately, 0Bam and is evil cronies will quietly listen, then they’ll do whatever they’d decided before hearing these ideas. It’s all for show, Team 0Bam, and it totally lacks substance. This guy is going to get us killed!

He even blames the founding fathers for the economic and social injustices of our Constitution.

“The president will not find acceptable a response where everybody gets in a circle and points at someone else. The American people won’t accept that.”

The should all get out of a circle and point at Obama and his incompetence, for his selection of the group of pointing incompetents is the real reason we are in more danger from Muslim terrorists. Of course, such honesty and self-examination is far beyond this gang.

Ya’ll are missing the obvious *nuance* here. Gibbs said, “We are going to move beyond agency finger-pointing...”

Clearly, EXECUTIVE finger-pointing is still acceptable in their book.

If we had an honest media, that suckbag Obama wouldn't be in office in the first place.
