Skip to comments.Krauthammer: Obama Acts as if He ‘Stumbled Upon the Presidency’
Posted on 05/20/2014 8:10:47 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he stumbled upon the presidency only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is.
He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is madder than hell about the scandal, and said the president cant seriously keep claiming he learned about a wide number of government scandals just by listening to media reports.
He acts as ifit was the same with the IRS, eavesdropping on the AP, and all the other scandals, the Obamacare launchhe stumbled upon the presidency and discovered all this horrible stuff is happening. Hes in charge of these departments. At some point, youve gotta ask, Where has he been, and where is the competence, the elementary competence, he promised when he ran in 2008?
CNN reporter Drew Griffin said today that its hard to believe that no one in Washington, least of all the president, knew about these issues with the VA.
Watch the video below, via Fox News:
They need to call the Government Unaccountability Office.
I think most people know that Valerie Jarrett is the one running the show..she is the real President..Obama is just her useful puppet..now he agrees with everything that is going on of course..he is a Marxist who despises this country, but Jarrett, she is the one that is running everything
Can it be that Obama is simply stupid? Maybe that is a better answer than other political options.
Sorry,you lost me at "he's a dope".Nothing could be further from the truth.He is of superior intelligence and every single thing he's ever said and done,including the things that appear to some as stupid,are the result of total arrogance and a fanatical devotion to his mentors,Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers.
We underestimate the capabilities of this psychopath at out peril...and the nation's peril.
Especially since the Bush transition team warned Obama's team that there were serious issues with the VAs waiting times that couldn't be trusted.
It may be "hard to believe," but I'm sure CNN will try really, really hard to believe it, and convince that Barky didn't learn about this until he found out by watching "The Daily Show."
No, Mr. Kraut, obama was pushed on the country by people like you.
Obama is so bad that even five years into his presidency even CK finally gets it.
The standard position on any of the issues that arise is that the President was unaware until he saw it on the news ...
How I loathe the liberals in both parties.
When someone plays stupid this often, you have to start to wonder if they are simply playing.
Everything Clown Prince nobama does is intentional...evrrything. nobama hates you Free Americans. He is a hate crime.
At the time of his election, I thought he never contemplated winning the election. The look on his face, early on, seemed like he had terror. Not sure at whether it was due to what he learned in briefings, or being scared of the responsibility or what. I do think he is an idiot who hates America. He is smarter than average, but barely. More than anything, he reminds me of my youngest brother - and arrogant, mean, doofus. He just wants what he wants, and will do anything or say anything to get it.
I think it was Richard Belzer, or maybe someone like him, who thinks that they show a newly-elected president a film of the JFK assassination that no one has ever seen before from the grassy knoll vantage point to scare him into line.
Hey! Hello!?! Hello!?!
Psst, over heah, brah!
I’d generally agree on Jarrett being the linchpin of this administration. Of the first four years...there was almost zero international affairs skills with the top twenty people around the President (count out Hillary as well). The international affairs record as of 2013? Pretty much a “D-minus”. As they swapped around chairs last year...they brought one or two people in with such skill sets. Jarrett picked all of these people for their jobs, and ensured that they get little if any face time with the President.
The finance side of the house? All team players and limited in experience. So Jarrett, who has zero finance and zero international skills, is mostly pushing a social program administration, which was ok as long as they held both the house and senate. Now? It’s mostly a lost cause.
The remaining question will be in 2016, does NBC go out and hire Jarrett (at the tune of $400k a year) to be one of their Sunday morning chat show players?
Why do u think his first EO was to seal all his private records.
Respectable leaders don’t have that option.
Odumbo DID stumble on the presidency. He sure as hell didn’t earn it nor has done anything good to keep it.
I despise the creep.
