Are you comforted that Obama never seems to know what's going on in the government he's in charge of?
He says he didn't know what was going on in the Justice Department, twice now, with Fast & Furious and the AP phone record controversies.
He didn't know what was going on in Treasury with the IRS scandal.
He didn't know what was going on in the State Department and his own White House with the Benghazi Scandals.
Yup, I'm sure glad he's my President!

That's almost as scary as what he is doing to America.

I wish that we could give people like you one and a half million people you are responsible for in 50 states and over 100 countries and then hold YOU personally responsible for everything every one of them did. The important thing is what a leader does once those transgressions are discovered. Obama ended "Fast and Furious". He fired the guy hundreds of miles from Washington who was in charge of the department that targeted Tea Party groups filing for tax exempt status and is investigating others' involvement. He has explained the confusion that took place over Benghazi (and most Republicans were also confused at the time) and he's pledged to do whatever is possible to prevent future attacks.
And even more important ... Obama has not been directly connected to any wrong-doing in any of these so called scandals. Embassies have been attacked under the previous 5 or 6 Presidents. Employees of the federal government have done questionable and illegal things in their quest to "protect" their President without his knowledge in most likely every single administration since Washington's. It's only the Republican's fear that the only way they will win the White House again is to tarnish Obama's reputation that is the reason for these ridiculous attacks.
It's not going to work! President Hillary in 2016!

staggering factor. regardless of the undeniable fact that that's to no longer dazzling that he's doing this. Sociallism is approximately government equalizing the society. this is the classic politics of envy. somebody else has completed particularly nicely and others are surpassed over. So government steps in to redistribute the wealth. the concern is that it by no ability works. the two the effective human beings discover the thank you to conceal their productiveness from the long palms of the government or they only end producing. exceedingly quickly each and every physique is doing plenty worse. working occasion, the Carter years. We had stagflation. no person had motivation to offer because of the fact it may purely be taxed removed from them.

The white house is not suppose to have direct jurisdiction over the justice department
If it is shown that the IRS got instructions from the white house to harass conservative groups for political (or any other kind) of irrelevant motivations, Obama should be censured/impeached
There is no Benghazi scandal. The investigation regarding the 9/11/2012 attacks proceeded smoothly and questions regarding the attackers were made public well before the 2012 election
Yup, at present, I am still glad he is my president

There is usually some element of “spin," about what Obama knew & when he knew it. The cynical art of telling just enough of the truth to avoid political embarrassment is swirling so fast, we may find Obama trying to give the tiger-media just enough to keep their vain attempts to chase around a tree until they are reduced to a pool of melted butter. "Little Black Sambo" thinks he'll be able to recover from it all and will have his first lady make pancakes out of the butter.
Obfuscation and demagogy, the dirty tools of political quackery that Obama pledged to purge from Washington, enjoy top-shelf status at his White House.Source(s): bwlobo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_Little_B...

No, I'm disturbed by all his administration orating that they knew absolutely
nothing. If they really didn't, they sure are a dumb bunch. But, someone
absolutely DID KNOW, so why aren't they digging to find out that answer?
Wouldn't the Commander-in-Chief be the first to be told of everything going
on militarily? You betcha he would, yet Obama knew nothing???? And Hillary
said, "What difference does it make?" What a bunch of losers.

Second lesson of politics: the underlings take the blame. The President never accepts responsibility, unless by doing so he actually saves himself.

No.....not at all.....I am looking forward to the impeachment hearings though.....which seems to be a pattern for all democratic presidents in recent history. Clinton thought with the wrong head.....Obama thinks with his 9 iron.

Unlike Bush who was in Texas 1/3 of his presidency, while jets slammed into the Word Trade Centers and 1,800 Americans died during Katrina?Source(s): Do you have any idea even of the massive insane sh** fit Conservatives would be having if even one of those things had happened on Obama's watch? You don't even care do you - you've been trained to insanely hate, and that's what you'll do regardless.

Yes the buck doesn't stop there any more.
Plausible deniability seems to be the watchword regarding the pranks of his henchmen.
