What a great bunch he has surrounding him. Speaks volumes about their leader as
Barack didn't know of the report but it is hard to believe he knew nothing
about conservative groups being targeted by the IRS. The man is corrupt - plain
and simple and every new scandal proves it.
The buck stops with obama.
So there will either be a mass firing or a mass cover-up; let's see which
Perhaps if Barack quit campaigning and began working in the job he was elected
to he would be more aware of what is going on?
So, according to the White House and the adoring press, Pres Obama is clueless.
Yeah. Sure, Right. IRS targeting and intimidating conservative
groups, administration lying about what really happened in Benghazi (and
continues to keep in prison that individual who created the anti-Muslim video),
and the AP is wiretapped. And oh, the president never knew anything about these
scandals until he watched the 6 o'clock news. Boy, I'm
Yeah, and if you believe this one, I've got some beach front property in
Arizona for sale. Obama has consistently lied to the country and is only
concerned with power and his "legacy."
How blind can people be?
The "people around me knew, but I did not" line is getting a bit old.
Fast and Furious, Benghazi and now the IRS. Come on, people can't be
buying the notion that everytime a scandal comes up, Obama is the only one that
did not know about it. He is the POTUS for crying out loud. It is his job to
know. His aides are there for that particular reason, to keep him informed.
Re-listening to Pres Obama's 2012 campaign remarks concerning Mitt
Romney's donnors, and the conservative tea party, one would think
conservatives being targeted by the IRS would be music to his ears. Are we to
beleive that his advisors knew concerning the IRS scandal - but, because they
wanted to insulate his tender feeling from such bad news, they did'nt
inform their boss? Marvelous!
So you all really expect the President(CEO) of the country to keep taps on the
daily behaviors of his 100,000's of employees and to know everything that
happens in the small moving parts of the government away from the white house?
Please tell me any CEO of any company even approaching the size of the federal
government that knows everything that happens in every department of his company
across the country?
Ok liberals, we now know that people close to Obama knew of the IRS acting out
of line.Knowing that it shows that either Obama is lying about what
he knows or else is very incompetent. Either way, why support somebody that
will like to use or else is so incompetent that he doesn't know what is
going on around him?
@redshirt"why support somebody that will like to use or else is
so incompetent that he doesn't know what is going on around him?"Or there may be at least one other possible reason besides your false
dichotomy. The CEO of the country does not keep taps on the daily behaviors of
his 1,000's of employees and does not know everything that happens in the
small moving parts of the government away from the white house. Please tell me
any CEO of any company even approaching the size of the federal government that
knows everything that happens in every department of his company across the
@tolstoyPlease...really? You honestly don't think Obama knew anything
about these BIG issues he's faced with right now. As a CEO you BETTER know
the bigger issues facing your company, or update your resume (the buck stops wih
you). If only Obama were one of the millions unemployed having to update his
resume right now...but one simple word sums up the difference between the CEO of
a private company vs our government and public leaders...ACCOUNTABILITY. If the
fed gov was a private corp and Obama the CEO, he would have been fired no more
than two years into his first term, and his excuses regarding the previous
"CEO" would have fallen on deaf ears.
@cougsndawgThe President (CEO) of the country does not keep taps on the
daily behaviors of his 100,000's of employees and does not know everything
that happens in the small moving parts of the government away from the white
house. Please tell me any CEO of any company even approaching the size of the
federal government that knows everything that happens in every department of his
company across the country. Did Obama place to much trust in the wrong people?
possibly but that would be the worst anyone has proven to date.
To "Tolstoy" that is wrong. Just look at Apple. Read "Apple Drops
Chinese Supplier For Using Underage Labor" at ABC News. If a CEO at apple
knew about underage laborers, then Obama could get briefed by apparently a high
ranking official that knew about the impending scandal.
@PhrancI wasn't suggesting a CEO should know all the "small
moving parts". I was suggesting that Benghazi, the IRS, and DOJ issues are
not small moving parts. They are major parts of his government that have had
some serious issues that any good CEO would know about. So the question remains,
is Obama an incompetent "CEO" or a lying deceiving one? Don't try
and convince Americans that these issues are small potatoes and nothing to worry
about. Maybe if it were one issue I would agree, but when multiple issues are
beginning to point to deceit at worst and incompetence at best you start to pay
attention and use some healthy skepticism. I believe taking the position that
Obama knew nothing about any of these major issues is a naive one.
@cougsndawgsthe issues are not small potato but at what point hte CEO
would be made aware of them is far less clear then you would like to pretend.
Every American should study the creation of the KGB, and Gestapo. How was it
used to implement government policies, and control.Compare, and
contrast to how the IRS will be used to implement the thousands of pages of
