There’s many irons in this fire now...and looks like those in control are not going to play the game anymore with this administration...time will tell...but these things cannot come at once, as we’re seeing, unless part of a bigger plan.

Their mistake, of many, was trying to pass the blame to the CIA.

This comes a day after President Obama said he found out about it from news reports on Friday of last week.

Oooo...how bout Carney said “...the White House was notified...”

Maybe someone stood outside and spoke to the building itself. That would also satisfy “truth” (i.e. the White House was notified) without actually being “true” - our interpretation of the message Carney is trying to convey (that the people IN the White House were notified)

I love dissecting spin.

If this is not a lie(if the Obama was genuinely not informed about what was going on his own White-house) this would be a sign of an entirely new level of extreme incompetents upon the part of the Obama Administration.

Will it phase an Obama supporter? Somehow I doubt it your advrage Obama supporter is either doesn’t care about anything at all or chooses to live so deep under a rock the world could catch on fire and they wouldn’t know it.

Nothing phases this guy, because his base either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about anything.

There is the possibility that Val didn’t tell him about it and he found out via news releases. Val is after all the real president and little barry bastard boy is just the puppet out front. Someone should sent to him a large jar of vaseline ... or give Valerie a good manicure and make her wear surgical gloves.

Then let me be among the first to congratulate the CIA. One notices how they always get the blame because they cannot speak in front of microphones (per se).

But there’s no doubt they could speak in other ways.

"I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday."

Learning about uncovering the IRS plot is not exactly what we're concerned about is it? He'll never get around to actually talking about the issue, like his perpetual avoidance of the Birth Certificate which is STILL an open issue. He'll avoid this issue until, like the BC issue, his Media Campaign Committee assigns a derogatory name to those seeking the truth. Anyone got any guesses what label(s) the Left will use to try to shame or ridicule the other side into silence?

The truth is rarely on the Leftist side. No matter because apparently ridicule and intimidation seem to at least keep things at bay.

I think “The Great One” Mark Levin summed this administration up pretty accurately when he said something to the effect of:

“This administration is in charge of everything yet they’re responsible for nothing!”

Obviously, Barry Soetoro doesn’t have a clue what is going on in his administration. I guess with all that perpetual fundraising he does, it would be tough to keep up with what your employees are doing.

Probably both true. I think there is a standing order at the White House:

When I wake up in the afternoon
Which it pleases me to do
Don’t nobody bring me no bad news
‘Cause I wake up already negative
And I’ve wired up my fuse
So don’t nobody bring me no bad news

So if Carney and Obama only found out on Friday, then how exactly was the White House previously notified? Did somebody stroll over and brief one of the columns at the front entrance?

I agree with you on the “spin”. You have to take every comment word by word to sort out.. there will still be some blatant lies in what they put out, but if you slice & dice the rhetoric, there will not be quite as many lies due to the wording they release.

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.

Alrighty, then.

The building was notified. Duh!

I’m sure they are tired of always getting the blame - especially if those blaming them aren’t particularly concerned if they die, and knowing that if they might be in a firefight in an easy rescue, they will be sacrificial lambs.

I think we’re not in the “disavow” territory with this at every point.
