Obviously, It Isn’t Obama

Good heavens!  The Obama administration gets its information from the news media!!!!

Earlier today, we saw president Zero state that he learned about the IRS scandal from the news…..

“I first learned about it through the same news reports other people learned from,” Obama said.

Tonight White House spokesman Jay Carney stated that the administration learned about he Justice Dept spying on the press by the press reports.

West Wing Reports @WestWingReport

President’s spokesman Carney tonight: “other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by Justice Dept. to seek (AP records)”

This is because when they did stay informed about the goings on with his administration he was forced to lie about events and looked entirely impotent in his responses to things like an ambassador and team being murdered by a bunch of terrorists, or like when one of his border agents gets brazenly murdered by weapons we gave to Mexican drug gangs.

He chooses to be stupid and ignorant and play golf instead of the job he was hired for.

So, I want a word with whoever is running this administration.  Someone has to be calling the shots!  Someone has to be getting daily briefs about what’s going on.  If I were whoever it is, I’d fire Zero, he’s making the entire administration look like a bunch of incompetent, lying, thieving, Constitution hating thuggish clowns.

    Just because he signs the bills, does not mean he has read them or even seen them.

  2. Bruce says:

    He didn’t say what he learned about the IRS scandal from the media.

    I hazard to say what he learned was this: that even the left oriented media can only go so far before their outraged readers require them to actually cover the news once in a while.

    The cheer squad may have gone out to lunch Mr President. Check. Mate in 3 maybe? Your move, sir. Perhaps you can still get a draw.

    • ThePhDScientist says:

      And the right wing media can only go so far in its scandal-brewing schemes. We’ve been waiting for days and weeks – hearing after hearing – as they proclaim they’re going to blow the lid off BENGHAZI-GATE!!! HUGE SCANDAL!!! Waa-waa…Nope not even close. Oh but the Republicans are hungry for more. Baseless conjecture will keep them chatting for weeks.

      • miked1947 says:

        Obama said today the White House lied about Bengazi right after the attack and continues to cover that up to this day. You were not listening to what was said.

      • philjourdan says:

        WOW! They must be paying you over time. Caps in your response even! I guess when you are clueless, you have to shout to make it look like you have a clue.

        Guess you have not learned anything new recently on Benghazi. But then you have not learned anything new in the last 49 years either.

      • suyts says:

        ROTFL!!! Chris Matthews? Would that be like me quoting Rush?
        Ph, this is a huge scandal, already. You’re just not focusing in the important parts. As I see it, the most important part and the huge screwup that will get someone in trouble is the two “stand down” orders. I would also say the review board’s decision not to interview Hillary is another issue. The revisions to the talking points is just part of it. Imprisoning of the video maker and then sealing his record is another focus, along with the administration’s decision to highlight the video, which had nothing to do with the attacks at Libya. It is now apparent, this was invented by the administration, probably the State dept. But, there was no intel stating this had anything to do with the video. But, the most important question is, why were those people left to die? No one was coming.

        • philjourdan says:

          You made an error Suyts. He is indeed focusing on the “important” parts. His marching orders are to suppress the debate, so it goes away. That is what he is getting paid for. He has no conception of what is going on because talking points are not keeping up with the news.

        • suyts says:

          Well, yeh, he’ll stay behind of the information if he gets his news from tuber-reactionary Mathews.

  3. David Appell says:

    You are confirming the stereotype that only political conservaties are climate contrarians….

    • suyts says:

      Heh, well David, you know that isn’t true, but it does stand to reason that alarmists are leftists. I mean, if one is left of center, politically, what’s not to like about climate alarmism? Taxes, more govt. control, globalization, attacks industry, wealth redistribution….. it’s all there for a leftist.

      • DirkH says:

        Our “conservative” statists in Germany like climate alarmism for the same reason.

        I guess if we ever come across a left wing climate skeptic it will be one who is not a statist. If such persons do exist. Can there be a non-statist leftist? All leftist ideas of society that I know of involve a total state, starting with Plato’s The Republic over Thomas More’s Utopia right to H.G.Welles The Shape Of Things To Come.

        • philjourdan says:

          I believe Richard Courtney is your left wing skeptic. He sure is not conservative (American style) and he is very much a skeptic.

        • DirkH says:

          Courtney is staunchly “english socialist” as he himself proclaims. I guess that means Labour, a party that is controlled by the Fabians, and during their last reign in power DOUBLED the number of government employees, so no, he is not interested at all in a small government.

        • DirkH says:

          Tony Blair is a Fabian. H.G.Welles was a Fabian. They are basically the epitome of total statism.

        • DirkH says:

          Hm, okay so I stand corrected. I maintained a leftist skeptic would be a non statist; Courtney is a statist and a skeptic. David Appell is proven false as well.

      • suyts says:

        Dirk, I seem to recall some skeptics on WUWT who proclaimed they were left of center politically. But, as they also proclaimed, their interest was narrow in scope. They disagreed with the data and conclusions, only. They might have had a hard time with the land confiscation of the 3rd world nations for industry purposes, as well.

        • Scott says:

          Willis Eschenbach is decently far left and also an AGW skeptic.

          I’m surprised Richard Courtney (is this Richard S. Courtney?) sits on the left. He has a strong faith, which isn’t typical of those on the left (at least in the U.S.)

          -Scott

        • suyts says:

          Isn’t it great to destroy stereotypes? 🙂 But, I think liberalism can be divided into two very distinct groups. And that may be where some of the confusion lay. Classic liberalism advocated more freedom. Whereas in the US if one adopts a “liberal” label, they advocate less liberty. Economically, they’re both as clueless as each another.

    • philjourdan says:

      #1 – What has this article got to do with the Climate?
      #2 – Who is denying the climate?

      Apparently you have a cognitive disconnect, or what is worse (given your stated profession) an incompetent usage of the English language.

  4. David Appell says:

    IF true, the head of the IRS needs to resign.

    On the other hand, it’s the job of the IRS to investigate potential fraud, and given all the corners cut since Citizen’s United, it’s not clear they are going beyond their legitimate jobs….

    • suyts says:

      What do you mean, “if true”? If true the IRS abused their power? They’ve already admitted to doing so. Or “if true” they didn’t keep Obama informed?

    • philjourdan says:

      Citizens United created no new laws. It merely affirmed existing laws. So there are no “corners cut”. Nor has the IRS been cut either by the sequestration, or any other budget maneuver. So you are wrong again.

      And I bring your attention to Article 2, Section 1.

      A 3rd rate burglary did not bring down a president.

  5. ThePhDScientist says:

    I know that’s sort of like when Bush didn’t know all of his intel for getting us into the Iraq war (wasting trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives) was decidedly bad and most senior intelligence officials questioned its validity.

    This is almost as big a deal – NOT!

    • miked1947 says:

      There were WMDs in Iraq, but that was not the reason for invading Iraq. We had to invade Iraq because of Bill Clinton’s handling of the situation during his time in office.Now Skeeter is following Clinton’s lead and creating more international strife for the next president to handle. Just like Clinton he is creating more domestic strife for the next president to fix also.

    • Bruce says:

      I agree with you that the Iraq war (#2) was stupid. I thought it was highly suspect at the time. Which was an underestimate. Colin Powell did it right the first time, overwhelming force, then leave. If they don’t get the message do it again. And again. The Romans did this and it worked for half a millennium.

      But no, you are wrong on this PhDS. Four people died because support was not given. The mortar team was painted with a targeting laser. They do not do this for fun. There were assets in place, and they did not fire. General Ham, the CO in charge resigned shortly after. There is no other possible interpretation than the OK to fire was not given, or was given and overruled. Either is a scandal of the first order. Worse than Watergate, no one died in that.

      Cowardice in the face of the enemy causing death to teammates is the highest possible severity charge in the US military.

      Now add AP-gate, which is bad and IRS-gate which is even worse, and you have a legacy which the history books are going to have real fun with.

      Democrats must learn to govern by law and not take shortcuts. Our local Oz ALP government is about to learn this with a wipeout in the September election which will be the worst since Scullin in 1931. And they are only incompetent, not crooks, with the possible exception of some individuals (the PM, Craig Thomson and Peter Slipper).

      • philjourdan says:

        Bruce, I have been following Oz politics recently. And yes, trending polls do indicate a massive loss. But beware of voter manipulation. Gilliard and Obama are 2 peas in the same pod. And she has shown a total disregard and contempt for both the rule of law and her constituents. So while I wish you good luck, I would not count the chickens still in the egg.

    • philjourdan says:

      Article 2, section 1. I guess your ignorance got the best of you again.

      Sucks to be as ignorant as you.

    • suyts says:

      Ph, how in the world do you relate things which have no relationship. While we can debate the validity of the intel Bush acted upon. That’s intel.

      The IRS isn’t some rogue terrorist organization…. or at least, they’re not suppose to be. They are a part of this administration. And, Ph, this is a huge deal. This is 3rd world dictatorship crap. It’s an attack on our democracy. This is your fellow citizens our government is singling out in order to quell the opposition. And to spy on the media. Take you ideological blinders off and understand that if this stuff affects all Americans.

    • DirkH says:

      Because Bush invaded Iraq, Obama can do what he wants.

      That’s a rather comfortable position. PhD expresses the political philosophy of the Left precisely. Right is Might [Spinoza].

  6. David Appell says:

    My comments aren’t appearing.
    Am I being censored??

    • suyts says:

      David, this is the first comment of yours that I’ve found in the spam bucket. If I’ve inadvertently missed a comment, then I apologize. But, to answer your question, of course, not.

    • suyts says:

      I would add, I have no idea why you went to spam. It happens sometimes. Oddly, I have another commenter from the NW that this happens to from time to time.

  7. miked1947 says:

    PHD:
    You have shown you do not know squat about real science and now you are displaying your ignorance about world events. You should learn when to STFU!

  8. philjourdan says:

    Interesting that he held his “secret-transparent” meeting on Friday, and that is when the MSM finally decided to start reporting the story.

  9. DirkH says:

    PhD might consider calling in some more OFA troops; but I would think they’re pretty busy now. Obama arse-kissers seem a bit surprised that they followed a totalitarian leader:
