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




By Tim Graham | October 28, 2013 | 22:53
 

Tim Graham's picture
 
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:
•   "Obama 'Unaware on Investments"--headline, Albany (Ga.) Herald, March 8, 2007
•   "Obama 'Unaware of Illegal Aunt' "--headline, BBC website, Nov. 1, 2008
•   "Obama Unaware of Tea Party Protests"--headline, Examiner.com, April 15, 2009
•   "Obama Unaware of Backroom Deal, White House Says"--headline, Dallas Morning News website, June 4, 2010
•   "Blago Judge: Obama Unaware of Seat Exchange Bid"--headline, Associated Press, May 16, 2011
•   "Sebelius: Obama Unaware of ACA Website Glitches Before Launch"--headline, CaliforniaHealthline.org, Oct. 23, 2013
•   "Obama Reportedly Unaware NSA Spied on 35 World Leaders"--headline, ABCNews.com, Oct. 28

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...."

Shouldn't Obama be sued for plagiarism? :beer:

If Obama doesn't know anything, and doesn't do anything, and isn't responsible for anything, then why is he President? What do we need him for?

I would have to disagree.  He knows how the poor feel.  He knows to give them phones.  He is responsible for the rise of the Sun.

Journalists abdicated their responsibility to inform the public, to make people aware of what's happening with legislation that impacts their lives. So the bottom line is the American people are in the dark.

Hard news today is nothing but thinly disguised editorializing as journalists lead with their party affiliation and not who, what, where, when, and why. It's all opinion masquerading as news.

Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over

Obama has to be the most 'unaware' president in history, and here is measurable proof.

https://www.google.com/search?q=Obama+Unaware&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Bush+Unaware%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

https://www.google.com/search?q=Clinton+Unaware&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a


Considering Bush and Clinton are more popular names with two major political figures each, this says a LOT.

That's absolutely fascinating..................and extremely revealing as to how stupid Obama really is.


Especially when you consider that Google is on Obama's side!

ANY Republican president who had been unaware to the extent Obama has for 5+ years would have long since been the subject of impeachment proceedings with the media leading the charge!

Exactly! Bigun. Which is why the real problem in America today is the press and their lack of curiosity when it comes to Democrats.

If a Republican administration had authored even half the number of scandals as the Obama administration it would have been hammered by the press long ago.

Obama is unaware of even more than the low information voters. At least they know who the president is.

There are no REAL journalists anymore and the reason is that schools of journalism, where they still exist, do not teach how to report facts but rather how to promote an agenda!

No real American journalists.  There are still some foreign journalists left and, sad to say, it is them we must turn to for a lot of the domestic news American journalists should be reporting.

You are right, Oceander. I found it to be especially true in, of all publications, Pravda!

Their opinion page is also a blast!

Obama: Time For Americans To Embrace My Dictatorship And Their Own Slavery, Or Else

(by Sher Zieve, CANADA FREE PRESS) – Acting more and more like a cheap version of Josef Stalin or even Hugo Chavez and, increasingly, drunk on his personally perceived absolute power over US citizens, Obama is now openly attacking we Americans and all of our institutions.

His partial shutdown of the US government (aka “ObamaGov”) has allowed him to affect all manner of dark mischief against us and he is laughing even more voraciously at us, while he pretends to put on his ’serious face’. As one angry Park Ranger put it: “It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation. We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting!”

Snip

All of this is about Obama and his—as yet—unquenchable thirst for power over us all. His is a dictator and each day his commands become more despotic. The criminal beings now occupying our White house believe they now control us and—at their whim—mandate us to do anything and everything they say. They, also, believe they have proved it by ramming ObamaCare—which is not healthcare at all—down our throats. We did not revolt…then.
