Insp. Clouseau's White House: Obama was Also Unaware of Phone Taps on Foreign Leaders

by Andrew Malcolm

Conventional political wisdom in America is that as commander-in-chief, the president of the United States knows all and sees all. Barack Obama's press office is constantly announcing his briefings on everything from global threats to hurricane preparations, wildfires and floods.

Recent revelations about the National Security Agency's ubiquitous monitoring of every phone call and email would seem to indicate that's Obama's goal too.

But over recent months the Obama administration has developed a peculiar pattern of behavior in this area. Obama himself and unidentified aides using news leaks have boasted of the president's ignorance of things that an ordinary person outside the Oval Office bubble would think a chief executive should know.

That's the kind of dodge favored by those whose father never taught them to take responsibility for their actions.

Last week HHS Secy Kathleen Sebelius told CNN straight-up that the nation's leader whose name is synonymous with his signature healthcare legislation, had no idea at all for days that there were some problems launching, running, updating and using the ObamaCare website.

Apparently Sebelius didn't think the failed site-testing and crashes merited a presidential heads-up, even though her boss had been tirelessly touting the site's guaranteed efficacy for months. Or maybe Valerie Jarrett just forgot to pay the White House cable news bill.

Before that, a detached Obama pleaded no knowledge of any Benghazi whistle-blowers being prevented from testifying before Congress about that awful night.

He professed ignorance that any IRS agents would dare to intimidate and harass conservative groups to the benefit of the liberal's reelection campaign, although his lawyer just down the hall knew. Apparently she didn't think illegal political oppression by tax authorities merited a presidential heads-up

Obama didn't know his attorney general didn't know about the Justice Department's illegal gun-running operation benefiting Mexican drug gangs. Because Obama like Eric Holder is so committed to press freedom, he was unaware that Holder had lied on a signed court document about a criminal suspect in the media and then lied to Congress about it.

That was so serious that Obama ordered Holder to investigate Holder. And as a direct result, Holder is still in office.

Americans still do not know where Obama was doing what during the deadly night of 9/11/12 in Benghazi where four Americans died in a terrorist mob with no rescue attempt because Obama and his crack security team failed to anticipate Arab world trouble on that historic attack anniversary. And failed to respond to cries for help....

Obama Should Be Impeached for Cluelessness

When I read Sunday evening in the Wall Street Journal that Barack Obama was “unaware” until last summer that the U. S. spied on thirty-five world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, I was frankly stupefied.(Well, maybe not entirely stupefied, but at least semi-stunned.)

No wonder Obamacare and practically everything else from foreign policy to energy policy is an unmitigated mess. This president and his administration have taken hands-off leadership and leading from behind to unprecedented levels.

What exactly does our president do for a living? What’re we paying him for?....
