Carney: Obama “wasn’t pleased” with Petraeus scandal when he found out, just after the election
Hot Air ^ | 6:51 pm on November 13, 2012 | Erika Johnsen

That’s their story and they’re stickin’ to it, I suppose. During the White House briefing today, Press Secretary Jay Carney affirmed the president’s confidence in Gen. Allen and iterated that the White House’s first inkling of all this came as a complete surprise after the election. Carney also emphasized the president’s eagerness to focus on his current number-one priority, a.k.a. jobs, the economy, and the fiscal cliff (which, I’m sure, is perfectly true — no good lingering on security concerns that bring any more attention to that Benghazi disaster, is it?).

We are better off when Obie and the Mooch are on vacation. And we shouldnt have to wait too long. Benghazi will be swept under the rug.

Yup,just after the election.Right.Perhaps just once in his life he'd admit that he engaged in political deceit and reveal that he knew *all* about Benghazi within days (if not hours) of its occurrence and he concealed the facts until just after the election for political gain.The worst that can happen is that he'd be impeached (best thing that ever happened to BillyBob) and not removed.

Yah,right...*that's* bound to happen.

RE: "So ....was Obama really surprised.?"

Yes. But for the wrong reasons. He, Jarret, and the other goons where totally surprised at how all the things in place worked themselves out to continue to totally remove him from the issue. They are probably beaming from cheek to cheek as how well things are holding up.
I think in due time their smug smiles will turn to a big :(

Yeah, yeah. The Joker found out way before the election. Isn’t that was Valerie, the shadow president, meant when she spoke of revenge? Something is up, and the Joker knew all about it.

I have some adjectives I could write, but in respect to our fine women and girls that populate this site, I'll skip doing so.

As often as Andrea Mitchell and every other fifth-column skank and Barry buttboy have reported in solemn tones that “Obama found out about the Petraeus scandal just after the election,” even recent voters having returned to their residences at the local cemetery will likely accept the story.

Couldn’t believe anything anyway but the “It’s the video” BS had me so po’ed I haven’t listened to the wanna-be-speaker-to-the-false-messiah since. Now, anything that comes out of that @$$clowns mouth I immediately think,”guilty, liar,” first without even the benefit of the doubt. Does this make me bad?

“Carney also emphasized the president’s eagerness to focus on his current number-one priority, a.k.a. jobs, the economy, and the fiscal cliff”

Hey, we speak “Obamese” here on FR!
(his) “eagerness”:

jobs: killing those that remain
the economy: completing its destruction
the fiscal cliff: driving off it

Of course when he finally succeeds it will be, “that darned Bush!” The MSM is already blaming the Republicans, to wit:

Right, just like how Obama didn't know that Blagojevich was trying to sell his Senate seat until after the last election, too.

Republicans knew in October. FBI also knew.

Would Mr. Obama care to tell this same lie under oath before Congress?
