Skip to comments.President Obamaís latest boast: I donít learn anything from watching the news
Posted on 07/23/2014 12:30:40 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didnt know about the problems until he heard it on the news.
But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night.
Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesnt watch the news because, Whatever theyre reporting about, usually I know.
That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the Fast and Furious gun-running operation, and the Department of Justice spying on news reporters.
In each of those cases, Mr. Obama or his aides have said the president learned about the scandals from news reports.

Obama’s a effing liar. I didn’t learn that from watching the news.
This m’fer is too stupid to be an idiot!!
Apparently 0bama missed the news reports of him saying that he learned of F&F, the IRS scandal and several other stories by watching the news.
the omnipotent Zero
but that still doesn’t stop Josh Earnest from saying the White House just learned about things on the daily news
I think zero is going to have a hard time adjusting to civilian life and reality 2 years from now when his mini-god-dom is over.
He learned it all in the faculty room at Harvard.
Yoy don’t learn anything from anything, Gilligan!
I thought he learned it all in the men’s room at Columbia!?!
Rush played a montage of Obama saying that he learned about his administration’s multiple scandals by reading about them in the news, including as late as last May. Now he says he doesn’t read the news.
BTW, remember how the media reacted when Dubya said he didn’t need to read the NY Times? You would have thought he was being locked in a cave and spoon fed all his info by Dick Cheney.
They called George Bush ‘strangely incurious” about the rest of the world. That is but one label that applies to Obumbles.
I totally could buy this. I don't learn anything from watching the news, either.
BO should surf FR more. He'd be better informed.
He’s the President of the US, he’s supposed to be making news not watching news.
He really doesn’t get it.
Obama’s latest boast. “I Don’t Learn Anything”.
His skin is too thin for THAT!
Heard that. Scandal after scandal it was all ‘news to us.’
“We found out about it when you guys reported it.”
He just knows the MSM won’t call him on the b.s.
He doesn’t learn anything, period.
I learned it by watching his lips move.
That directly contradicts his claims to have first heard about various scandals in his administration “on the news, just like everyone else”.
Oops. I guess I should have read the article instead of just the headline...
No kidding! History class either.
Obama is an Isflamist (everything Obama says is flam).
Well except for all his scandals. But since there is not even a smidgen of wrongdoing going on who cares?
What we have here is a president who “retired” from being president after the 2012 election.
Now, he’s just traveling the country, playing golf, and holding fundraisers, and once in a while, reading a script written for him by his staffers, to address whatever is the hot-button issue of the day or week.
He likes the job, but not the work.
He is doing exactly what he did as a senator in Illinois: he phones in to cast his votes, but goes about enjoying being the job. The benefits are better than what any king of queen could ever hope for.
He enjoys giving speeches, and holding fundraisers, but then, that’s what he believes makes him important.
Furthermore, people, Obama has retired to save his legacy: he and his party believe that, he is more valuable to the party by going around raising money, for the coming battles for the senate and house, and even to help whoever is the candidate for president in 2016.
He remembers what happened to democrats in 2010, and he’s worried that his legacy will show that he “killed” his party. To try to avoid that, he’s dedicating the rest of his presidency to fundraising. So, we have a president who retired years earlier than he was scheduled to leave.
Not a bad thing for the country, but then, the country is just cruising along, without a leader, and the people he has making decisions, are slowly destroying the country.
We need a video to show what’s happened with this president.
That video would present a critical issue, and then, show the president doing a fundraiser, or playing golf, or being on vacation, or just blaming Bush and/or republicans for whatever the problem is. We could have that video addressing some 30 or so critical issues, and then Obama going about life as if there are no worries.
Neither does anybody else................
Sure, he doesn’t need to read the papers, he gets the straight scoop from Valerie and their gay and muzzie buds.
He is f-in nuts and should be locked up!
Clearly Obama also learned nothing from his affirmative action matriculations, save the number of states in the Union.
On one hand he does have a point. I don’t learn about his scandals on the news either, I learn about them on FreeRepublic ;)
I don’t either.
Obummer to his drones: “Don’t focus on news anymore...”
(now that the news is bad news for me).
Used to be that too many people were watching
Neither do I ... it’s all Administration propaganda peddled by the MSM pimps and pimpettes!
Did he lie before or is he lying now - oh wait it’s mac daddy and he lie ALL THE TIME.
That’s for darned sure!
