I have this vision for a campaign commericial:

(A Red Phone rings and the text says: "2 AM at the White House." We hear a voice on the answering machine:

"BEEP! Thank you for calling the White House but unfortunately we are no longer part of the Administration. Please leave your name, number, and crises message at the sound of the tone. Neither the President nor Vice-President will be replying since neither they nor anyone else in the White House will be listening to the message.... BEEP!"

They must think that the "administration" is the set of unconfirmed czars, not the elected president or vice-president, and confirmed cabinet members.

There are some True Believers in this nation; they are people whose worship of Obama does not allow for cold hard facts to shatter the foundations of their faith in The One. More broadly, they are completely devoted to a mode of thought that posits the notion that deference to evil will disarm evil. They do not understand that evil will slit their throats more surely in light of cowardace.

Hearkens back to the infamous

“depends on what the definition of “is” is”


Great observation. Had that same thought last night when he used it.

Problem is, with a literal meaning, it shows they are more worried about themselves than 4 heroes.

Huh?

This is like Jumbo Shrimp, Congressional accountability, government efficiency, or Government Intelligence.

I KNEW this would be their line. It was the only possible explanation they could put out there that would not indict them. This only makes them look like they are out of the loop.

Of course...we know the truth.

If you haven’t seen this, I think you’d find it interesting.

Dangerously incompetent bunch, no?

It's stunning when you step back and truly absorb what serious trouble this country is in. Don't know about you but I sort of suffer the frog in boiling water syndrome - gotten sort of used to one debacle after another. Our debt, first ever USA credit downgrade, all the people on food stamps, blatant funneling of taxpayer money to Obama's supporters, Obamacare that will surely kill a lot of us, our enemies murdering our ambassador and growing bolder and stronger, the pack of lies coming from the WH for the purpose of keeping up the scam in the WH, the sheer ignorance of so many of our fellow citizens. AND THE VP ACTED LIKE A MAD HYENA on a nationally televised debate about the issues.

Anyone who votes for Obama is either a traitor or brain dead or both. There, I said it.

The REAL POWER is the dozens of ‘czars’ who live in the shadows and direct the puppets.

THEY are the ‘administration’.

Absolutely unbelievable - claiming he was only spaking for the HEAD of the administration and not the administration itself. If a subordinate 5 times removed from a squadron commander does something really bad, the commander bites the bullet because of the position of responsibility - I guess we now have absolute proof that when it comes to Obama, the buck doesn’t even pass by his desk, much less stop at it...

Is it any wonder why some people wax nostalgic for the Clinton Administration? Think about that for a bit. Nauseating, no?

I have literally thought about leaving if Obama wins again...whatever will happen if he gets 4 more years isn’t something I can bear to think about. However, my family is here.....what a mess.

Sorry I didn’t notice your reference to the czars but it is true, imo, that is where the power lye’s.

Only a dumb ass Obama voter and the American media will find comfort in this revelation and / or lie from the administration!

It is either stunningly treasonous behavior or utter incompetency on parade.

These are high crimes and misdemeanors folks.

We know that Obummer was shaking down the unions in Vegas for campaign cash after his 9/11 attack, but where was Biden? Did they have him locked up in an undisclosed location?

I guess under the constitution we have 4 branches, Juducuary, Congress, Executive and Administration. It just so happens in this case without telling the Executive the Administration screwed up.

I am fairly certain if you are on a debate team and find the need the following day to explain what you meant in the debate you lost.

Let me get this straight - Biden participated in a National Debate - NOT as vice President of the United States, but as a private citizen? He was just giving off the cuff comments rather than hanging out at the local bar?

What a joke.

The only people stupid enough to buy this line are the corrupt reporters of the New York Times.

While his predecessor might have preferred an oral daily briefing, Obama religiously reads a written version of the same prepared material,

I guess he puts it in front of his nose while kneeling on his prayer rug.

Soooooo then,
Who, exactly is “the administration”???

Nope, I really don’t want an answer to that question.

I bet he 'reads' it religiously... it is impossible to serve two masters. Valerie and Alexrod probably help him peel off what furthers their goals. And reality shows he is not serving US, but using US like a pimp uses his boys&girls.

“If Carney had any self-respect, he would have thrown his hands up and walked away from that podium long ago.”

Money line! Carney is as slimey as they come. He’s really having a harder time lately, spreading the crap that comes out of the administration honey wagon.
(my tagline applies to the entire administration, czars and all.)

This is a blatant lies by Carney, Biden and Obama,nothing more nor less.

The real question is when did Valerie Jarret and Hillary Clinton know it and what did Jarret advise Obama and was Hillary even asked for her advice.

Right now there is open warfare between the administration and the The State Department. The CIA is also in the game but not in open warfare but covert as they always are. The administration is 100% blaming intelligence which is the CIA and also the NSA and in addition State has its own intelligence.

The third factor is the political ambition of Hillary Clinton. Will Hillary throw Obama under the bus before Obama throws Hillary under the bus. Obama has thrown the first punch. Hillary will fight back. She wants to be President more than Bill Clinton wants to be with beautiful young women. Monica was young but not beautiful, she was convenient.

Perhaps he uses the briefings as rolling papers (too cheap to buy some Zig-Zags).

So, they admit that cluelessness is an excuse.

Biden has a great future in the movies. If they ever make a redo of the Pink Panther, there is no one else that could even come close to Peter Sellers as the inept Inspector Clouseau except the "GREAT I NOT KNOW NOTHING BEFORE I DID NOT KNOW I KNEW IT BUT FORGET IT I THINK, BUT ASK JAKE CARNEY BECAUSE HE MIGHT KNOW IT WAS THE TRUTH BEFORE IT WAS A LIE BUT IS NOT REALLY NOT A LIE."

Unfortunately this is the Vice President of the United States Joseph Biden whom I suspect is also "I KNOW NOTHING, Sergeant Schultz.

God Help Us!

Wrt your sergeant Schulz remark, I have to say I sometimes think that Biden, thru some of his sometimes very telling gaffes, almost like he’s accidentally told the truth, is him attempting to secretly relate the truth to us and the danger that’s ahead if we reelect Obama.

If Biden has a heart attack or falls down stairs and dies soon, i wouldn’t be too surprised.
