OUR UNKNOWING PRESIDENT:
The list is growing every week: The IRS scandal, the deteriorating security situation in Libya, spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, spying on journalists and the Obamacare mess. Those are just a few of the things we have been told at one time or another that President Obama he didn’t know about before learning about them in the media. Note to media: You have a critical job in briefing the president, so err on side of over-inclusion.
Then there are the things he had wrong or knew better but said anyway: There is a fatwa in Iran against nuclear weapons, “You will get to keep your health-care plan,” the Benghazi attack was related to an anti- Muslim video, and no predecessor had been compelled to negotiate a budget deal in the context of a potential government shutdown.
This prompts several questions: Who is running the government? Why is the president content not to know so many things? At this point one has to conclude he is intentionally ignorant. If he really wanted to be in the loop, people who didn’t inform him would be fired and the pace of “I didn’t know” excuses would slow. Instead it’s ticked up. Perhaps he refuses to hear bad news. Maybe his second-term team is hopelessly incompetent. Whatever the reason, Obama’s ignorance is no longer (if it ever had been) a valid excuse. His continual cluelessness is an indictment now of his administration’s collapse.
How the lies are stacking up… “Mind-boggling attempts at blame-shifting.”

Siding with al Qaeda is the last straw …::: Mother Jones: Let’s Please Stop Pretending That Obama is Reluctant to Take Military Action.
Mother Jones reports:
Obama has (a) escalated twice in Afghanistan, (b) massively ramped up the drone war in Pakistan and expanded it to Yemen, (c) joined NATO’s air strikes against Libya, and (d) is now asking Congress to approve a punitive military mission against Syria.
No, none of this matches Iraq in the annals of military folly. And who knows? Maybe history will judge that these were all good decisions. Still, I think it’s about time to acknowledge that Obama is hardly “reluctant” to take military action.
After all, the merchants of death do give big money to the Democrats. And they happily take it, just don’t let anyone else see you doing it.

The see no evil administration …::: Benghazi Whistleblower: I’ve Been ‘Punished’ for Speaking Out.
“I don’t know why I was punished,” Hicks said in an interview with ABC’s This Week. “I don’t know why I was shunted aside, put in a closet if you will.”
Of course you do, you just don’t want to say it. So I will, “we have to protect the Obomba” at all costs. Send in the lamestream media …

“SMART DIPLOMACY:” BY ITS FRUIT THE TREE IS KNOWN…::: Special report: We all thought Libya had moved on – it has, but into lawlessness and ruin.
If we look back at how we did it in Iran under Jimmy Carter … We traded the reformer Shah for the Islamic Fascists mullah dictators. And they didn’t even thank us.
And soon they will have their nuke, if Obama has his way. Imagine an orbiting nuclear bomb.
