Carefully worded headline. Kept... probe... results... from Obama.
That does not preclude Obama from ordering the suppression of opposition, or at a minimum, his staffers from telling him some rouge agents took it upon themselves to implement his directives (e.g. the numerous threats to punish enemies or attack private citizens).
This all smells like male bovine feces.
If the president had an “R” behind his name, He would have been crucified last year when the consulate in Benghazi was attacked, and the ambassador was buggered and killed.
We’d still be hearing how incompetent the president would be, then add the other 4-5 scandal’s and that would be the end of the “R” party. The press would be broadcasting this 24-7-365!
Hypocrites! (Yes, they are the definition)
Your captain hit the nail on the head. I don’t for one minute believe bozo didn’t know anything about this. The a** kissers are once again circling the wagons for their dear leader. This gets so old and tiring - just once I wish the Republicans would be a little more aggressive and call them out for what they are - LIARS! All of them.
To #28: THere are already enough cockroaches inside the White House. Don’t need any more. Maybe the Orkin Man.
I thought Krauthammer was a fool to advise republicans to tone things down.
But all republicans have to do is simply let absolute, total, irrefutable facts just kind of drizzle out, and let the chips fall where they may.
We ALL know that Obama knew about all of these scandals.
So Obama has two choices:
Own up to them and people will see him as the corrupt a$$hole he is.
Or have his underlings point out just how unengaged, stupid, and clueless Obama is.
Neither of these options is very desireable.
Apparently the dems are choosing option #2.
The stupid President.
I personally believe he is is both, but that's just me.
Parsing.Obama did not learn of the findings [emphasis added] until they were announced last week - as the president has himself stated.
This is to plant the meme he knew nothing. Says nothing about knowing about the issue, just the results of the probe.
Precisely. Maybe we know when Obama learned the specific words of the finding - but that is no proof that he didnt plan and order the actual malfeasance. And in fact we know that Obama made no secret that he was unhappy about the Citizens United ruling under which these applications were being submitted. Obama had an affirmative duty to prevent malfeasance - not just sanctimoniously proclaim his outrage at an abuse after he had reaped the full benefit from it.
No the GUBERMINT thinks we are all idiots.
Because the video shows that we have been lied to for decades,it means “THEY” can tell us just about any lie and the majority of Americans will believe it.
Of course he knew. Nothing could be more obvious.
“Does anyone think Obama did not know? He is a liar he knew and it has his grimy fingerprints all over it and many other sorted things I am sure.”
Obama has never said he didn’t know the IRS was targeting conservative groups. His exact response when question about whether he or anyone at the White house knew about the IRS activities targeting conservative groups was, “I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press
Note that Obama had the opportunity to flat out deny any involvement or the orchestration of this activity by the White House. His failure to directly answer the question put to him suggests there is much more to the story.
Obama (peace be upon him) is responsible to know what par is on any given hole.
He even looks a bit like Tutankhamen, only uglier.
King Tut has an excuse...he's about 3000 years old.
I’ll give you that. [smiles]
Right. IMO he was in full charge of the IRS probe, unlike Benghazi in which he was probably somewhere hiding under the covers.
Thanks for the ping!
He must have just missed them on the way to his next vacation.
