How much longer can President Obama claim that he 'didn't know'?

(My new American Thinker post)


According to The NY Times, President Obama didn't know again:
"At the same time, aides said Mr. Obama was surprised to learn after leaks by Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, just how far the surveillance had gone.

"Things seem to have grown at the N.S.A.," Mr. Plouffe said, citing specifically the tapping of foreign leaders' telephones. "I think it was disturbing to most people, and I think he found it disturbing.""
Sorry but this is incredible! 

I have to assume that President Obama was briefed about the full extent of these programs when he walked into the Oval Office. 

Furthermore, I have to assume that President Obama inquired about the programs and what exactly was the surveillance underway.

Something does not add up.  Either President Obama is not interested in the details of governing, such as the extent that surveillance was being done in his name, or, he is not telling the truth about rules that he approved.

Things just don't add up.

The media obsessed with Christie but not so obsessed with other scandals like the IRS

(My new American Thinker post)


To this date, President Obama has not had a long press conference, answered every question and "fired" anyone close to him regarding "Fast & Furious," "Solyndra," "IRS," the AP story, and the daily problems with Obama Care.

To his credit, Governor Christie took questions and fired somebody.

"What do you suppose is more annoying? Being stuck in traffic for hours on a bridge -- or watching the media get stuck for days on a story about a juvenile stunt that might, or might not, bloom into a full-blown scandal?   

I'd have to go with the latter, especially when you consider that the media seem addicted to the story in hopes that it could somehow derail the plans of a Republican presidential hopeful."
Right on Ruben!   We are watching a news media "wake up" when the scandal is about a potential GOP candidate and yawn for most of the aforementioned Obama scandals.

The Chrisite scandal was stupid.  I'm not defending it.  It reminds me of Watergate, a stupid burglary.   Unlike Watergate, there is no evidence that Governor Christie engaged in a cover up and tried to protect his subordinates.

The IRS scandal was about the government using unlimited powers to go after its opponents.    Or what about the incompetence of Obama Care?

At the very least, the media should call on President Obama to hold a press conference and answer a bunch of questions. And they should tell President Obama to limit his answers to 5 minutes!  

And let's not forget to ask President Obama about the Benghazi video story after it's clear that everybody knew it was a terrorist attack not some spontaneous demonstration.
