Full Title - "Carney: White House notified of IRS targeting tea party several weeks ago; Obama: I found out Friday [VIDEO]"
White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a press conference Tuesday that the White House was notified about the IRS targeting tea party groups several weeks ago. This comes a day after President Obama said he found out about it from news reports on Friday of last week.
During a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday, President Obama was asked about the IRS scandal. He responded, I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.
However, Carney said Tuesday that first a report had to be compiled by the IRSs inspector general and then when it was completed, it was passed on to the administration.
A notification is appropriate and routine and that is what happened and that happened several weeks ago, Carney said.
Carney said the White House will not make a formal statement until a complete IG report is released.
Carney said later in the press conference that although the White House was notified weeks ago about the IRS investigaton, neither he nor the president were notified individually.
Well, well, well... the islamic communist liar with jug ears and a well worn butt lied to us again... no surprise!
Yes. Communication problems ... They don’t know how to tell tbe truth.
The man knows nothing that happens in his administration!
I sense complete disarray in the White House. My prediction: Carney is gone within 2 weeks
Look at Juan Williams. The left completely turned on him. His career would be over if not for FOX News. And he STILL bends himself up in a pretzel trying to defend the indefensible acts of the left.
It's a sickness, leftism. Just as Yuri Bezemenov, ax KGB said of the demoralized leftist mind, "they are ruined people".
"As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to access true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I showered him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crashes his butt, then he will understand, but not before that. Thats the tragedy of the situation of demoralization."
So, the White House is notified that the IRS has committed the same behavior that was included in the articles of impeachment drafted against Nixon and nobody thought it was important enough to give Obama a heads up. And I'm supposed to believe that?

A FReeper noted earlier that Obama appears to only have control of one part of government... Seal Team 6. That’s how he got Bin Laden. He knows nothing about anything else.
Perhaps the IRS told Joe Biden
They never tell Biden anything ,he would blab it in 30 seconds
Obama the Know-nothing President. He makes Sgt. Schultz look honest.
Can you imagine the screaming going on in Carneys hidden ear microphone when he said that. President Jarrett must have been livid.
The reason leftists are impervious to facts that undermine their ideology is that their own sense of personhood and “goodness” is all wrapped up in that ideology and worldview.
They would basically be committing psychological suicide to allow a challenge to their worldview.
Consider a worse possibility; Both are true statements.
The 'White House' was advised (i.e. lower level people in the WH) several weeks ago and no one told the President.
These clowns are so incompetent, that I could envision that scenario as being true.
It wasn’t me, it was him. No him, no that person right there. Aww hell, just remember it wasn’t me. You can believe that.
Maybe Carney found out a couple of weeks ago and..well shucks...you know, he just plain forgot to mention it to the President.
Oval Office Couch Syndrome (OOCS), the WH knew several weeks ago, nobody wanted to tell Obama how fubar things were.
*** It’s a sickness, leftism. Just as Yuri Bezemenov, ax KGB said of the demoralized leftist mind, “they are ruined people”. ***
I think Juan Williams acts as he does because Fox wants him to be a foil for the on air food fights. Of course, it comes easy to Williams because he’s also a racist.
As far as liberals being unable to access the truth, I can see it. I would have never believed it possible, until it happened here in the US.
Yep, it’s pretty bad when the only viable option for Obama to claim he isn’t in on the corruption is to claim he’s so breathtakingly incompetent that he’s oblivious to it.
Funny how that works huh? Nobody’s accountable, even though it did happen.
