Know-nothings: Holder echoes Obama; We totally find out stuff when we read it in newspaper

Precious. Attorney General Holder parroted Obama today when he said that he totally finds out about stuff only when he reads it in the newspaper. Remember, President Liar Pants claimed that he only found out about the IRS’ targeting of conservatives from “news reports.”

The Smartest Man Alive and his administration know nothing, you see. Nuthin’! They have no idea what is going on, ever, until they read it in the papers or see it on the news. Evidently, Holder hasn’t been reading much, since his mantra today was “I don’t know.”

And there’s more! According to Holder, the White House only found out about the AP phone records scandal from guess where? That’s right: Newspapers!

Oh, our aching sides. Well, it would be hilarious if it wasn’t so chilling.


But at least it is an explanation for something.

‘I don’t know’: What does Eric Holder know about AP and recusals? He knows nuthin’, baby, nuthin’!

    I guess that’s what missing all those briefings gets ya…

    • Elaine

      It’s also kind of funny because they TELL the newspapers what to say. haha

  • Stupid Republic

    Well, I’m calling BS on this.

    If they already have the reporters’ phones tapped, then they should know before the newspaper is published, no?

    • Clayton Grant

      I don’t think that phone tapping has come to light yet, although it probably will. Just the records of calls made/received. Holder will let us know for sure when USA Today tells him so.


    Arrest and hand cuff them and off to prison, now!

    So the Know Nothing Party is making a comeback.

  • yourmamatoo

    If that is truly the case, Obama and his minions need to be fired.
    How pathetic.

  • Steve_J

    He doesn’t know anything about “Fast and Furious, nothing about the AP. He doesn’t seem to know what’s happening in his own department and he expects some respect?

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Hell…Sarah “reads” more than that… (/sarc whatever) LoL

    (Meant this in the ‘funniest’ way, possible…)

    I’ll just leave this here: or this, if you like GIFs

    Obama, Holder et al are supposed to MAKE news, not just read it.


    Guess he has to stick to newspapers, because he’s afraid His government might secretly subpoena him, or track his GPS from his TaxPayer Paid iPhone that the Feds acquire info and Emails from IPs that the government does big deals with.
    We already know that we are being tracked like a bloodhound. Just know this, Eric We Love Our Country, and we don’t ever hear you Advocating American Liberties, just the usurping of them….LIKE PRIVACY!
    Power Greed is Absolute Power-Power Absolute!

    They have to get their news from media sources but yet we’re to believe they have hard “evidence” that 91% of the population wants expanded background checks.

    I may have been born yesterday mister, but I say your diaper is more full than mine!

  • Rulz

    That’s okay. You just have your boss keep on giving those Iowa and Minnesota farmers and inner-city ethnic minorities and college students freebies and they’ll keep on voting you in.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Then they should resign their incompetent arses from office bcuz they do not know how to do their jobs. They clearly do not understand the concept of leadership, that the people at the top are ultimately responsible for screw-ups and that the people who work for them reflect their lack of leadership skills. Of course, they don’t consider these gaffes to be screw-ups–it was just their flunkies and lackeys following orders, as usual.

    Obama’s #IamNotaCrook moment is fast approaching.

  • Gary Rudick

    Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.

  • MSM

    Clearly these all-powerful interns and low-level employees in the administration must be stopped from their corrupt ways. Their actions are ruining the reputation of their oblivious bosses.

    Can’t a guy go golfing for one week without the grunts reeking havoc at the office?

  • Just Another Guy

    Well then,
    You aren’t doing the job you were supposed to be doing, right, by your own admission.

    Out in the “real world” that gets you fired.

  • irishgirl91

    Nice to know the most powerful man in the western world is no more informed than my 80y.o mother in law.

  • tjp77

    Listen everyone. Give the administration a break. It takes a LOT of work to program a teleprompter and then do the onsite advance work to make sure all the camera angles and lighting are perfect. You can’t expect them to be on top of everything here. Sheesh.

  • BenY

    As disgusting and pathetic as these incompetent low life criminals are, the Congress that lets’ them get away with it are as bad, if not worse. They’re really hard at it with their scathing remarks, “this is unacceptable”, and then get right back to their feeding. at the trough.

  • Orlando Cee

    Well, if they get their information from the Lame Stream Media, that explains everything, doesn’t it?
