WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama was unaware one of his top advisers suggested job opportunities to potential Colorado Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff in hopes of persuading him not to run against Sen. Michael Bennet, whom the president favored.

The White House faced fresh questions over back-room dealmaking after acknowledging that one of President Barack Obama's top advisers encouraged Romanoff to apply for an international development job instead of challenging Bennet.

Guess this means they’re drawing straws to see who is going to get thrown under the bus to cover for Obama.

"President Barack Obama was unaware"

But nothing inappropriate happened (not illegal mind you, just inappropriate for Zer0).

That sounds like a firing offense. Will someone be fired?

Barack is worried about the blown call in the “perfect” game. Selig should make him a deal. You fix the calls here and in the Sestak deal and I’ll fix the call in the game.

He is 'unaware'...pulleeezzeee...

The only thing he is unaware of is the rising anger of the American people against his narcissistic and destructive policies.

As much as this guy wants us to believe he has his hand on every situation it is hard to believe that someone in his Administration could offer anyone anything without his prior approval.

The cover up is always worse than the crime.

Maybe they could offer Selig a job to reverse the call.

If Obama is ever put under oath he’ll say “it depends what the definition of job is”. That he chose Clinton to do the dirty work, either before and/or after the attempted Sestak bribe, tells all we need to know about Dear Leader.

He's even a failure as a micro-manager.

If he didn’t know it shows what a poor
job he is doing in managing “his people”. . .
He certainly cannot manage the country. He
has an excuse for everything. Next thing
you know, we’ll hear it was Bush’s fault.

i’m incline to believe it. Obama really has no clue how to be a leader. He’s pretty much a hands off person. He just pick the ppl to do all the leading for him and he thinks thats leading

Dear Leader

Just in case nobody informs you I am contemlating
entering a Democrat primary somewhere in the US
for some kind of elected office. I might be persuad-
ed to change my plans if the right opportunity comes
my way. My qualifications would place me in the $200K
salary range and I would prefer to work at home.

For Hope, Change, and Transparency,
Your Friend,
Sivad

They’re deploying plausible deniability, which is effectively an admission that a crime was committed.
