Sounds like the Russians who said they wouldn’t be sent to the gulags if Uncle Joe Stalin knew what was actually going on.

Didn't tell his client of this crucial information? He's headed for disbarment in short order!

What is this? The man in the White House is not supposed to be the last to know about stuff or somehow be out of the loop.

I don't believe it.

So the senior aides knew, but not Obama.

Yeah...sure.

That’s like believing Haldeman, Mitchell and Erlichman knew but didn’t tell Nixon

Parsing.

This is to plant the meme he knew nothing. Says nothing about knowing about the issue, just the results of the probe.

But people don’t think it through.

The first thing I learned from my first boss, an old navy man “The captain is responsible to know what the first mate had for breakfast”. That was 40 years ago.

The captain is responsible for the ship and it’s well being, Obama

Of course the claim is false, but once Obama said “I don’t know,” they have to find some way to make a lie sound more believable.

GS-14 and up, if you knew and didn’t report it, you go to jail.

“and up” includes all political appointees, not GS rated.

If that number exceed 100, then the big boss goes to jail for creating a culture where that would occur.

Anyone looking for any finger prints of his excellency telling anyone at the IRS, Dept of Justice, HHS, EPA or any other agency to do this or that to the tea party, republicans in general or any religious group will be wasting their time. This guy gives all his instructions through his non stop campaigning: he tells the “public” who are the villains and he ostracizes anyone who does not agree with him or voices any opposing point of view. That is the signal for all the shills in the government to go after them. 4-6 open scandals now, none of which according to his mouth piece had any genesis in the whitehouse..HA! Who targeted tea parties and others for extensive reviews before giving tax exempt status some low level employees in Cincinatti? HA. Who decided to go after the fast and furious whistleblower with demeaning slander, some US Attorney in Phoenix, Ha. Who decided to get the AP reporter phone records, some low level lackey in DOJ, HA! Who refused to send help to Benghazi some corporal in the communications center? HA! Who decided to wiretap a FOX NEWS reporter, some street FBI Agent, HA! Who decided to extort money from health insurance companies, some claims examiner in HHS? HA. No, all controlled either directly or indirectly by his excellency mostly using the campaign speech ploy.

Let's see: if this was the Bush White House and the "news" media found out that people there were keeping info from him, they would be saying:

1) Bush is detached, he doesn't know anything. He doesn't care.

2) His people are keeping things from him because they know he can't handle the job. He's just a figurehead, someone else is actually running the country.

So, "news" media, why isn't the same for your beloved selected boy-king, Zero Hussein?

Reuters loses even more credibility by reporting “straight-faced” that the President knew nothing because no one bothered to clue him in. Right.

Yea but Nixon had his own office bugged & the existence of the tapes was made known. It would take a witness to come forward to nail O himself on this. I don’t see it happening.

So answer me one question Col Obama, your people follow orders and you gave an order that no one should be harmed due to their political beliefs so why was it necessary for Carney to continue to say that you will investigate what happened and fire or transfer the guilty parties?

The only way Obama did not know, was if they told him while he was wrecked on drugs and could not remember.

I don’t care when the White House learned of the PROBE. The issue is whether the White House knew of (or worse, encouraged) the underlying IRS misconduct as it was happening.

Q: Anybody know what this is?

For April 1, 2013
1.)
2.)
3.)
4.)
5.)

Ans: It is a typical daily staff provided detailed list of events and
activities presented to President Obama each morning which
informs him of items which require his immediate attention. It
allows the President to stay on top and out front of everything
that happens in the nation and the world.

There are some things in my life of which I am proud. One such thing is my letter to the Arkansas State Bar some 15 or so years ago lodging an ethics complaint against an Arkansas lawyer - William Jefferson Clinton. It's framed and on my wall. And the maggot was, in fact, disbarred, both there and before the Supreme Court of the U.S.

I'd like to write another letter now against Barry Hussein Obama, or whatever his name is, but I can't find a Bar to which he is admitted.

DAMN IT ALL!!!

One suspects that not only did Mister Obama know, but that he was behind it all; and, (again, one suspects) that he is wary enough to cover his tracks.

One wishes that the media would consider that maybe Mister Obama's intent might not be totally benign; and that they would investigate this angle

Two senior White House aides knew weeks ago that a probe of the Internal Revenue Service had found that the U.S. tax agency had inappropriately targeted conservative groups, but did not tell President Barack Obama, a White House spokesman said on Monday.

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round,
The wheels on the bus go round and round,
All through the town.

Until somebody decides to get off.
