Carney: Biden Was Speaking About Himself, The President, And The White House, Not The Administration
BuzzFeed Politics ^ | October 12, 2012 | Andrew Kaczynski

Posted on 10/12/2012 10:38:29 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

The White House press secretary said the Vice President didn't contradict the State Department last night because he was not speaking about the Administration as a whole.

How can we expect the POTUS and the VP to know what’s going on in one of the most dangerous areas of the world?????

OMG!

Hah!
OK, I can buy that...
The President is either golfing, watching ESPN, or hanging with his buds ... So I don't doubt that he didn't know anything.
Biden is probably kept locked in his padded cell until the times they need to cart him on stage for his next clown act.
And the White House consists of mortar and bricks, so 'it didn't known nuthin' neither'.

I guess Biden didn't lie after all...
We'll just stick with the grossly incompetent charge.

See, the President, VP, and White House in general are completely sealed off from any information the intelligence community or the State Department gives to them. One part of the Administration can’t possibly know what another part of the Administration knows. To expect this is just too much to ask of them.

‘Dangerous’ being the operative word here .... I think Romney/Ryan need to use it. National security is at stake, no doubt about it .... the proof, on a small scale, came back in 4 caskets. The next time, it will be more and I’m guessing it will be within our borders.

Now it all make sense. The President, Vice President, Secratary of State. UN Ambassador, press secretary etc were not in the loop.

The only remaining question is who was in the loop and who are these mystery intelligence officials they keep throwing under the bus?

Remember that Gorelick wall exposed at that Soviet style 911 commission. I think White House intelligence is not the same as US intelligence. We learned a lot from Biden's gravitas last night. He opened 'secret' doors most of US only guessed existed.

How can the White House blame the intelligence community for “getting it wrong” and leading them astray when they admit to not even taking the Presidential Daily Briefs since FOREVER? Plenty of time for fund raisers and golf but too busy to listen to those who are the eyes and ears of the nation. And the tale that the President doesn't have to attend cause he is so smart that he can just read the PDBs... Right! A betting man would not lose if he put money against that one.

In my opinion what we may be seeing here is the beginnings of a major internal war within the Administration.

Obastard has realized the Clinton's are undermining him in an attempt to position Hillary for 2016, and he is responding by throwing Her Thighness under the bus to destroy any future aspirations she has.

IOW in true narcissistic fashion, if Obambi is going to go down he has decided he will take everybody else with him.

Did Obama skip this intelligence briefing or did he just zone out when they told him about the security situation in Libya?

Hey, its not their fault. The Republicans have not authorized money for secure communications networks for the golf courses and the bars to keep these two in the loop!

It is a special kind of feckless recklessness on the part of people who are woefully unaware that their actions have real, tangible consequences. In other words, a pack of dangerous children.

I’m having a hard time dealing with the fact that a good part of America doesn’t see the danger(s) and isn’t totally outraged at what Obama et al are doing. I watched the entire hearing the other day ..... took my breath away that people can be so blinded by liberalism or whatever you want to call it and the total lack of common sense (and decency). I don’t give a rat’s rear end what “actionable” intelligence they didn’t have .... all they needed to know was that it was the anniversary of Sept. 11. Idiots all. Personally, a lot of what Obama & his thugs are doing meets the definition of ‘treason’ in my book.

I’m thinking the Administration should not be throwing people under the bus right now, especially Hillary and the CIA. They probably have files and files and files on Barry and they might all of a sudden get “leaked.” Poor Barry may not want that to happen.

” MARTHA RADDATZ: And they wanted more security there.

BIDEN: But we weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security there.”

Let’s see here, who is the WE he was talking about?

Did he have a mouse in his pocket?

MY god this administration has to be the most dishonest in the history of America,

Please pray.

2 possibilities.
1.Obama does not know what’s going on in his own Administration. Hillary does not report to him.
OR
2.Carney is lying.

I could find IF I were to take the time claims have been that Obama does not attend typical intelligence briefings. My guess is that he gets his intelligence directly from Valerie and Axelrod. Their purposes are completely different than typical US intelligence security briefings. Biden as much said so. The inner circle uses US intelligence to further their goals, not US security.

Biden opened for more than US what their word, promises, and commitments are worth to US and the whole world. I suspect there is a world of head shaking going on around this globe overnight and today.
