"I wouldnt be surprised if President Obama learned Osama bin Laden had been killed when he saw himself announce it on television." -- Jon Stewart
What's the point of having a President who learns about everything his administration is doing from the newspapers, just like everyone else? When do you start to ask, "Is this guy stupid or just dishonest?" Given that Barack Obama seems to know so little about what's going on in his administration that it's starting to resemble a "Hogan's Heroes" rerun with Bo playing the role of Colonel Klink, maybe the answer is "both."
1) Obama didn't know we were spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel for five years.
The White House cut off some monitoring programs after learning of them, including the one tracking Ms. Merkel and some other world leaders, a senior U.S. official said. Other programs have been slated for termination but havent been phased out completely yet, officials said.
The account suggests President Barack Obama went nearly five years without knowing his own spies were bugging the phones of world leaders. Officials said the NSA has so many eavesdropping operations under way that it wouldnt have been practical to brief him on all of them.
2) Obama didn't know that his administration was sending guns to Mexican drug cartels via Fast and Furious.
In the March 22 interview, Obama said: There have been problems, you know. I heard on the news about this story that fast and furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico and ATF knew about it but didn't apprehend those who had sent it. Eric Holder has -- the attorney general has been very clear that he knew nothing about this. We had assigned an IG, inspector general, to investigate it.
3) Obama didn't know the DOJ seized the AP's phone records.
(Press Secretary) Carney later added about the scandal, "We don't have any independent knowledge ... [Obama] found out about the news reports yesterday on the road."
4) Obama didn't know the IRS was targeting Tea Party groups.
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.
5) Obama didn't know the Healthcare.gov website was going to fail.
In an exclusive interview with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta asked when the President first learned about the considerable issues with the Obamacare website.
Sebelius responded that it was in "the first couple of days" after the site went live October 1.
"But not before that?" Gupta followed up.
To which Sebelius replied, "No, sir."
Does he know he’s president?
Obama has gone full circle.
From reading the punchline on the teleprompter to being the punchline on the teleprompter.
“Does he know hes president?”
He thinks he is dictator of Amerikastan!
Of course, it was Sargeant Schultz who knew “nuthink”...
The Colonel Klink reference is good, but Obma is playing two parts in Hogans heroes.
Klink and Sergeant Schultz. Who Knows Nothing.
Public mockery is Obama’s Kryptonite. That is why they have always been so quick to complain when somebody attacks their Golden Calf. When mass delusion is the foundation of the administration, public mockery is the most powerful force in the World.
“these bits of deniability gave him enough of an edge to sound somewhat sincere. “
He’s a sociopath. They can lie with total sincerity. He’s also a narcissist. They can’t allow themselves to look bad even for an instant. (Jimmy Carter had this problem. If anybody criticized him he had to explain immediately why he made the decision he made. This cost the life of a highly placed Israeli agent in Libya. He also revealed the B2 and Stealth fighter to explain why he canceled the B1. This revelation gave the Soviets and Chinese a 10 year head start on counter-technology.)
He thinks he is dictator of Amerikastan!
I have news for you FRiend.
He IS the Dick-tator of Amerikastan.
He has Congress and the Supreme Court in his pocket, add the Media to that , and he IS the Dick-tator.
“CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta asked when the President first learned about the considerable issues with the Obamacare website.”
“Sebelius responded that it was in “the first couple of days” after the site went live October 1.”
I’m flabbergasted! So did Obama tell all his Secretaries and Czars to not tell him anything so he would have plausible deniability or is he just flat out lying when he says he read about it in the news. Either way it is incompetence on steroids. And the MSM just sit there like BOOBS. Incomprehensible! (no, I’m not surprised)
Obama is a lie, and built on the same principle.
All lies are of satan and so is obama.
Yes, Satan is the father of lies, when he lies he speaks his native tongue (from his own resources).
You said it
He sure acts like it
that was my thought too
What does he know or care until Valeri Jarrett tells him?
Not if it hasn’t been”Reported”in The Papers!!
I'm going with 'dishonest'...
OBONGO has been able(with the help of his”LACKEYS”in the MSM)to portray himself as the proverbial”OUTSIDER”!He refers to”Washington”in the Third-Person(”They(Washington)Just Don’t Get It”.He used this extensively in the 2012 campaign and was NEVER ONCE questioned on it!!He’s is still getting away with this”RUSE”,but it’s beginning to wear a bit thin.He has been outright LYING about ObongoCare for over three-years now and,as The Reverend Jeremiah Wright would say,OBONGO’S Chickens Are Coming HOME To ROOST!!!!!!!
You're good norwaypinesavage... you 'get it'. He also knew his people were going after the AP and attempting to bully Bob Woodward... Thanks for sharing.
“Obama has gone full circle.”
Kind of like a dog chasing their own tail.
To listen to his own people tell it this is one dumb son of a bitch.
See, the press was quick to indict Nixon for some third rate break in because he MUST have been aware and probably actually planned it.
Meanwhile, the great cosmic wonderkin is aware of nothing, he just pontificates.
“I’m just a mushroom.” chuckled the beleaguered president. “My handlers keep me in the dark and feed me s***. What day is it?”
Gee, and I thought these past few years he was just a pisant.
well ain’t that the truth
Yesterday, while listening to the radio, I heard about the LAX shooting. The announcer also added that Obama had been informed and was getting hourly updates. I wondered why he would be so informed about this but so uninformed about so many other things, like his signature piece of legislation - Obama care.
I had to change the channel when Shep smith kept going on and on about this
If the Republicans take over the Senate Obama will resign in 2015 to avoid impeachment over the IRS illegal political activities. With Joe Biden as President, the Democrats will go down in history as having had the most corrupt and the most stupid presidential ticket.
He knows his tee times.
Didn’t know anything about al-Qaeda in Benghazi, but spent weeks blaming Egypt and Benghazi unrest on an obscure movie.
Team Obama lied, and due to recent information, Team Obama knew they were lying from the time of the Benghazi attack.
Lying seems to be so easy for Team Obama.
It is so apparent and without doubt! Some refuse to see the truth. We see it however!
They are LYING about this, also!
