5 Things The Obama Administration Had No Idea The Obama Administration Was Doing

"I wouldn’t 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 haven’t 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 wouldn’t 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 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."

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

How in the heck did it happen that this incompetent liar is leading the free world?
I shudder to think we have three more years of his over-reaching power grab, especially since we have a brain dead Congress.  :nometalk:

  • Your what hurts??
What other President was ever allowed to get away with anything close to this??  Bush was castigated repeatedly in the press just for taking his "vacation" at the Western Whitehouse during the August recess when Congress abandons DC.

The press is finally discovering they cannot easily continue to carry water for Obama because his lies have been exposed to far too many people and they aren't buying his BS any more.  2 million cancellations so far with tens of millions more to come.  The press will be unable to cover this one up for much longer.

I'll wager a paycheck that Jerrett knew about and possibly oversaw each one things that Obama claims he did not know.
It is glaringly obvious that Obama does not belong and does not fit as a President. He is simply not up to the responsibility and maturity that the job requires. Worst of all, I don't think crazy Joe would be any better.
On the brighter side, at least the Left is finally catching on to what we knew all along. And, it looks very much like Obama has 'lame-duck'ed himself with his incessant lying. We will have to see if it sticks.
It is going to be a tough 3 years. For everyone.

The public has allowed the media and high ranking political figures, to not be held accountable for EVERYTHING under their watch.

You know, like the military and private industry does. The Truman "Buck Stops Here" rule.
