Obama Unaware, continued
The President and his mouthpiece Jay Carney are wearing out the "I didn't know, we can't comment because of the ongoing investigation", excuses.
Ignorance is allowed to be the best defense. And the White House press corps apparently feels his ignorance. They are all ignorant together. We will now field questions on gay marriage and immigration.
He did not know of Merkel phone taps. But he knows how the putts break at Congressional. The leader of the free world didn't know that the government he heads was monitoring the private communications of the leaders of other free world nations.
Frankly, I would be surprised if we weren't monitoring or attempting to monitor everything we can get our hands/ ears on. I always had issue with other countries attempting to spy on us, but it is a game, and fair at that. What is distasteful is the spying on us by countries to which we give large sums of "aid". Perhaps the gifting should be conditional. but I digress.
Now, who ordered or didn't order or knew of the Benghazi attack? What was the question again? Who denied additional security requests, altered the talking points, etc. ? Why no eye witness public testimony? Inquiring minds want to know. We will get to the bottom of this....right?
Recall other "I didn't know moments".
ACORN "I didn't know ACORN was getting...ah...ah....a whole lot of federal money."
Fast and Furious. Eric who?
Bill Ayers. I thought he just wrote my book and created compiled fake characters to fill the pages of my official and approved auto biography.
Didn't know of Reverend Wright's diatribes and their content? For 20 years and approximately 400 sittings before the good reverend, the smartest guy in the zip code just didn't hear or understand what was being said.
For allegedly possessing a remarkable intellect and intelligence, he seems content to be kept under informed and out of the sunlight of information. But isn't his obligation of office to know what transpires, what is occurring about him and under him?
If the President learns from watching the news, perhaps he could learn a little earlier in the cycle if his press corps lap dogs would just give him a heads up before it gets to an evening news anchor.
This is a dog leg left as I remember.
