It seems like every time a scandal arises Obama claims to be clueless about it. According to him, he learns about them from the same news sources that we commoners do. Most recently this was the case with the IRS scandal and the AP wiretapping scandal. Sure, he reads the same news source we do!
Remember Fast & Furious? Obama apparently learned about that on the news. In an interview on October 21, 2011 Obama said, ““I heard on the news about this story, uh, Fast & Furious.” Yeah and we voted for you twice you lying piece of trash!
During a press conference with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron on May 14, 2013, Obama said this to the first and only question he took from a reporter regarding the IRS scandal, “I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this, I think it was on Friday.” Sure and we think your administration is the most transparent administration in history!
In regards to the AP scandal, Jay Carney had this to say on May 15, 2013, “He didn’t have any independent knowledge of that, he found out about the news reports yesterday on the road.” Sure and we think Obamacare is going to improve our healthcare system!
So now this brings us to the question, did Owannabetyrannt really not know about it, or is he full of bull feces? Well let’s see what his AG had to say about the leak of classified information that led to the wiretapping of several members of the AP.
During a press conference on Medicare Fraud, Holder said, “This was a very serious, um, a very, very serious leak. I have been a prosecutor since 1976 and I have to say that this is among, if not the most serious, it is within the top two or three most serious leaks that I have ever seen. It put the American people at risk, and that is not hyperbole. And trying to determine who was responsible for that, I think, required very aggressive action.”
So let me get this straight, you said this was at least the third, if not the worst leak you had seen in 37 years and you didn’t tell the president? Sure and we think Islam really is a religion of peace!
This leak being at least the third worst leak Holder had seen in 37 years, you’d think he would be leading the charge within the DOJ to get to the bottom of it, but wait, here’s what he had to say about that….
“The deputy attorney general would have been the one who ultimately authorized the subpoena that went to AP. I’m not familiar with all that went into the formulation of the subpoena, but I’m confident that the people who are involved in the investigation, who I’ve known for a great many years and I’ve worked with for a great many years, followed all of the appropriate Justice Department regulations and did things according to DOJ rules.”
Just so we’re all clear on the worst leak that Holder has seen in 37 years…..
Obama knew nothing and Holder is not in charge of the investigation.
Or, maybe they’re trying to absolve themselves of any responsibility and blame for it.
Back to the IRS scandal that Ofullofcrap apparently knew nothing about, Jay Carney had this to say, “We were not aware of any activity, or any review conducted by the inspector general until several weeks ago.” According to Jay Carney, the IRS inspector general notified the White House counsel’s office during the week of April 22 that it was completing a review of the IRS office in Cincinnati that targeted conservative political groups for special examination and…
They apparently didn’t think they should tell the president about this either.
Then during a press conference Obeyme had with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on May 16, 2013, Otraitor emphasized, yet again, that he CERTAINLY didn’t know about it when he said, “Let me make sure that I answer your specific question. I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press. Typically, the IG reports are not supposed to be widely distributed or shared. They tend to be a process that everybody is trying to protect the integrity of. But what I’m absolutely certain of is that the actions that were described in that IG report are unacceptable.”
The only truth our nation’s worst president said in this statement is he finds it unacceptable now that he got caught doing it, of course he left that last part out.
Sure and they really heard about this 26 days ago even though the IRS was doing it for over two years!
At least we can all rest soundly knowing that Jay Carney had this to say about the president, “The president absolutely believes in the need for a, uh, the press to be able to pursue, unfettered, investigated journalism.” Who cares that this president has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all of the previous 43 administrations combined, he really believes in the freedom of the press folks!
Well at least we can all rest assured that Oblahblahblah is on top of this IRS scandal, after all he did have this to say about it…..
“Well let me take the IRS situation first. Uh I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people uh learned about this. Uh I think it was on Friday. Um and this, this, this is pretty straight forward. If in fact uh IRS personnel engaged in uh the kind of practices that have been reported on uh and were intentionally targeting uh conservative groups than that’s outrageous! And there’s no place for it. Uh and they have to be held fully accountable because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity and people have to have confidence that they’re applying it in a nonpartisan way. Uh applying the laws in a nonpartisan way. Um and and you should feel that way regardless of party. I don’t care whether you’re a democrat, independent, or a republican. Uh at some point there’s gonna be republican uh administrator, administrations, at some point there’s going to be democratic ones, either way you don’t want the IRS ever uh being uh perceived to be biased and anything less than neutral in terms of how they operate. So uh this is something that I think people are are properly concerned about uh the IG is conducting its investigation uh and you know I, I’m not going to comment on uh their specific findings prematurely, uh but I can tell that uh if you’ve got the IRS operating in anything less than a neutral and nonpartisan way uh than that is outrageous! It is contrary to our traditions uh and people have to be held accountable and it’s got to be fixed. So uh we’ll wait and see uh what exactly uh all the details and the facts are uh but I’ve got no patience with it, I will not tolerate it and we will make sure uh that that we find out exactly what happened on this.”
Uh whew! Uh I’m sure glad uh he is outraged and uh on top of it! Uh aren’t you?
