OBAMA DENIES ROLE IN GOVERNMENT
The New Yorker via Powerline ^ | 5/19/13

Posted on 05/19/2013 6:22:17 PM PDT by mathprof

President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years.

“Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than I am,” he said. “Quite frankly, I am glad that I have had no involvement in such an organization.”

The President’s outrage only increased, he said, when he “recently became aware of a part of that government called the Department of Justice.”

“The more I learn about the activities of these individuals, the more certain I am that I would not want to be associated with them,” he said. “They sound like bad news.”

Mr. Obama closed his address by indicating that beginning next week he would enforce what he called a “zero tolerance policy on governing.”

“If I find that any members of my Administration have had any intimate knowledge of, or involvement in, the workings of the United States government, they will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.

Been a long time since I read anything in the New Yorker [via Powerline].

Hope this post doesn't raise any audit-flags. The New Yorker author, Borowitz, better beware.

This made me laugh.

I’ll have to pick up a copy for the first time in many, many years, just for support.

Used to look forward to looking at it every Tuesday.

I still have trouble missing the Sunday NYT Crossword.

But it is now, as a family friend, a real-thing Greenwich (CTP) once called it, a muslim rag.

He is still trying to convince people that he is on the outside of government.

Someone had to coordinate the attacks from DOJ, IRS, and DOL. I see only two possibilities: Big Sis at DHS or Valerie Jarrett directly, each using hand-picked liasons.

Either way, Obama knew.

I laughed until I cried. Then cried because I laughed, realizing this is no laughing matter. The element of truth in the satire is strong.

Axelrod did a Biden the other day when he proclaimed Obama innocent because,”The government is too BIG for the President to know what is going on”. I almost wet ‘em on that one.

Oh, but this Halfrican does have a role given to him by those who engaged in international conspiracies.

So far he’s doing what he was selected to do.

Saw this *comment* at the site...

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

"The U.S. Supreme Court has never overruled its 1946 Yamashita decision. The precedent the decision established was that a commander can be held accountable before the law for the crimes committed by his troops even if he did not order them, did not stand by to allow them, or possibly even know about them or have the means to stop them.

This doctrine of command accountability has been added to the Geneva Conventions and was applied to dozens of trials in the international tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. It has also been adopted by the International Criminal Court established in 2002"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomoyuki_Yamashita

Liberals are always wanting "International Law" to be applied to US Supreme Court decisions. This is a good start for them. It happened on Obama's watch!

See ! See what happens when our fearless leader goes golfing and forgets his Blackberry ? Well now that he’s back on the job we won’t have to worry anymore. Shame on those nasty people who took advantage of his absence by crushing groups critical of our great and fearless one. We know if he was there he would have nothing to do with their nefarious and illegal activities. He said so and we believe everything he says and does.

Bohner is falling for the racist angle and believes if he allows setting up Select Committees for both IRS and Benghazi that is the way he’ and the Republicans will be portrayed.

Instead he’s allowing these fractional committees which can be akin to a 410 shotgun pepper away when a 12 gauge would finish them off.

Take IRS for example.The IRS illegaly sought and distributed confidential information about groups opposed to government policy to a political front group supporting it who in turn handed out confidential if not secret information to favored liberal publications. Not only should the distrubuter be put on the hot seat but the editors and the writers of the recipients of their largess be questioned and identified.

Concur. No matter who did what, he is the CEO - it went down on HIS watch. The responsibility is still there, whether he wants it or not, denies it or not.

“It went down on HIS watch.”

You’re mistaken.

That only applies to Republicans.

Limbaugh Theorem. If you're not a listener, earlier this year, Limbaugh had an ephipany on why the American People haven't held Obama responsible for his miserable record of destruction.

Obama doesn't govern. It's not his policies. Obama "wants" a good economy, open government, and any number of good things, but dark forces; evil republicans, talk radio, tea party, big business are all conspiring to block Obama's desires. These powers are so strong, Obama hasn't been able to overcome them.

Obama doesn't govern, he campaigns. The crummy results are his fault, he's fighting the injustice and unfairness out there.

Obama is not associated to his policies, because he doesn't govern.

People are beginning to catch up with Limbaugh.

OBAMA DENIES ROLE IN GOVERNMENT

A blinding glimpse of the obvious from an unusual source. Obama has absolutely nothing to do with government. His job is to be the one who cannot be blamed.

Obama is a decoy.
We do not have to be ducks.
