A Way Too Common Headline: 'Obama Unaware' of Everything Scandalous

October 28, 2013 A Way Too Common Headline: 'Obama Unaware' of Everything Scandalous

Tim Graham

When President Bush didn’t know about something scandalous going on in his administration, starting with Iraq, reporters mocked him for a lack of curiosity and intelligence. (See Scarborough, Joe.) But when intelligent liberals (oops, for the media this is redundant) are in charge at the White House, being unaware is a shield against scandals. The clueless president gets to walk in and say “Nobody’s madder than me about” (fill in the blank: Healthcare.gov, IRS scandal, NSA scandal....)

Liberal Washington Post editor and Obama biographer David Maraniss claimed Obama was even relatively unaware of racial issues until high school: “Like Obama, she was relatively unaware of racial issues until she got to prep school.” On Monday, James Taranto at The Wall Street Journal came up with a nifty list of headlines making excuses for Allegedly Unaware Obama:

Taranto's headline was "The Buck Stops Ware?" Obama never wants to take any responsibility for Obama scandals. "Who, me? I was unaware. Nobody's madder than me...."

Yet when it comes to bin Laden, Obama was leading the raid himself.

What taxes? I was unaware that I had to pay them. None of my advisors ever mentioned them to me.

People laughed and made jokes about Reagan's Alzheimer’s disease. Perhaps Obama is medically unfit to be president.

He heard about it on AF1 coming back from golfing.

He had no idea this was going on...

No one tells him anything....

He is frustrated as anyone with the situation...

He has compete faith in his appointees.

Says he fixed it, time to move on to immigration.

Obama is only aware of legal, successful things attempted at his direction, so yes—there is a very great deal that goes on he makes a point of having no knowledge of.
At all.
Another way of putting it, he is only engaged in hopeful matters that bring welcome change, like lowering the Earth’s temperature and oceans levels. He does these things all the time and everyone takes them for granted.
For shame.

Remember how the left made the meme “Bush Lied, People Died” stick?

We need to come up with the same kind of thing for Obama.

Maybe something like: “Hell No, Barry didn’t know”

Today’s lesson is we now know unquestionably that The Wan we’ve been waiting for is either dangerous incompotent or dishonest to his core.

I really like:

“OBAMA DOESN’T CARE!”

Makes a nice chant, especially when chanted with 40,000 or so of your closest friends who have discovered their insurance rates going up like a rocket.

Obama DOESN’T care!

Obama is unaware that as President he is expected to be aware.

This is what you get when you elect a Teleprompter President for his skin color.

Make no mistake about it, let me be clear. Let me say this about that.
That’s what I’m talking about. Here’s the deal: It will not be easy. Yeah! Uh, OK, er, what? Huh? Uh huh. News to me, no knowledge, no sir. No. Yes. Maybe. That’s a categorical denial. Jay?

How can this be....he is always the smartest man in any room...just ask him.

Reporter “he’s the smartest man to ever be President”. Interviewer “what is his IQ?”. Reporter “I don’t know”.

LOL

"...We need to come up with the same kind of thing for Obama..."

You would need the media for that, and they aren't going to do their job.
