President Flippant flop: Obama tries to downplay pesky ‘hacker’ Snowden and fails

So this happened:

Whatevs, guys! He’s just a pesky hacker and stuff.

Lame, Mr. President. Lame.

Twitter users call him out.

When you’ve lost Ackerman …



And yet another POTUS fail:

Math is hard.

  • Jd1367

    If Obama had a son, he wouldn’t look like Snowden, but he’d probably act like him

  • Lilyputian

    Obama does NOT want a trial of this guy dragging out during the last three years of his “historic” presidency…discovery would reveal so very much he wants to keep hidden from us.

    • nc

      That’s such a good point.

  • Soulphoenix

    Obama is still trying to find Waldo on page 1 – Snowden will have to wait.

    Can we get a third-grader to help him out here?

  • Steve_J

    Why would he scramble jets to go after a “hacker”? He wouldn”t even scramble jets to try to help Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty.

    • therantinggeek

      Short answer: He’s too busy pandering to other nations. #mytwocents

    • Clete Torres

      Excellent post.

      Benghazi B-I-N-G-O!

    • Jeremy

      great point and he didn’t call any family members of the Benghazi victims but,he had time to call a gay couple.

  • Clete Torres

    I have now stopped worrying about the NSA et al snooping into my personal life. If the premiere intel agency on Earth cannot find this guy, why should I worry about whether they can find me?

    • Ronin

      I’d bet money on them knowing exactly where he is. I’d also bet trying to grab him in a hostile foreign major power might put a kink in “diplomacy”. Obama’s afraid of Iran, he probably wets himself over Russia.

      Poor Obama. He wants the Russians to like him soooo badly. “I’m one of you! C’mon, man!”

  • Ronin

    “…I won’t scramble fighter jets over a 29-year old hacker.”
    A drone, or the IRS/DOJ/FBI/ATF/EPA however…

    • Clete Torres

      Good one. Hadn’t thought of drones.

    • Karl Winrich

      Yep, why waste all that time and effort and manpower with sending fighter jets when 1 simple little drone can take care of the problem, and on foreign soil to boot.

      International incident you say? What international incident, we were just getting our own citizen, not your property or innocent bystanders.

  • Marcy Cook

    Obama does not want to catch Snowden. If Snowden is brought here he will probably reveal much more and the king doesn’t want the truth to come out.

    On the other hand he is “outraged” “outraged” and is going to get to the “bottom” of that pesky IRS thingy. That’s why you hear crickets from him whenever one of his minions takes the 5th.

  • jb

    Did Obama say hacker or cracker? Either way, he understandin’ that 29 yrs old is just a child and is still under his folks Obamacare health plan.

  • Blake Waymire

    In other words, Snowden had no reason to leave the US in the first place. All right, dude, you can come back and reveal all you know to Congress like you should have in the first place.

  • AmericanMom

    When Obama leaks state secrets of Israel, apparently to the Obama regime that’s acceptable (and forgivable) leakage.

  • 24fan

    Math is hard~ twitchy. Tell me about it. That was classic.

  • gracepmc

    But, if we find out that this 29 year old is a member of a Tea Party, he will feel the full force of MY government — FBI, the DOJ and the IRS.

  • mickeyco

    Won’t engage in “wheeling, dealing, and trading”? That’s because he knows Vlad won’t wheel, deal or trade. He’ll just laugh in O’s face.

  • R.C.

    0bama is just showing Putin his flexibility.

  • Guest

    Hell, he won’t do that for U.S. ambassadors under attack MT .@BreakingNews: Pres. Obama says he will not send US jets to intercept Snowden

    • Rob

      He doesn’t like jets. He prefers prop driven Predator drones.

  • rivers

    Uh yeah, because 29, your still a kid at 29! Why, the next dem party platform is going to call for abortion on demand until the fetus is 29! Who could take a 29 year old seriously!

    Can it get any stupider out there? The President has made his office and this country an international joke. Party on, Wayne.

    • VotingForZombieReagan2016

      But it’s only been three years since he was thrown off Mommy and Daddy’s health insurance!

      • rivers

        Right? Culture of losers, that’s goal.

  • tonyrohl

    If Obama can’t be bothered with Snowden, why should we? Obama has wheeling and dealing to do to make good on his promise concerning energy, “under my plan, electricity prices will skyrocket”.

    • Rob

      Charging/Killing Snowden would be as much of a sin to the Left (who is falling out of favor with Obama) as building a dirty, dirty pipe to transport oil.

      Ignore the fact that the oil WILL get to the refineries except without a pipe it will be driven/trained down adding not only to the cost of oil from burning fuel but the fabled “Greenhouse” capabilities of CO2.

      Then again, it’s never been about the environment. It’s been about getting people to buy “green” energy equipment from his buddies.

      • Guest

        Because everyone knows the rising oceans and warmer weather is just made up junk science, and the only patriotic way to power your homes and cars is by producing as much CO2 as possible! This 4th of July, I plan on making a bonfire of car batteries and tires because the environment is a bunch of communist liberals and I love freedom!

        • Rob

          I so wish those pesky Homo Erectuses would have shut down all of their coal plants and bought Hybrids so the planet wouldn’t have warmed up.

          The junk science is that CO2 contributes to global warming at the rate it does. Of all of the computer simulations ran only 2% of the runs saw the current 10 (or 12?) year stagnant temperature levels we’ve seen.

          And while you’re burning your car battery (yes, I know you’re kidding) remember, wet cell car batteries are full of lead, zinc, copper, sulfuric acid and other toxins. Lithium Ion batteries (as I believe the Tesla Roadster and maybe Fisker uses) have lithium. A rare earth metal that is mined in third world countries in a manner that makes coal slurry look like a good place to go for a swim and is toxic like nearly every other alkali metal.

          Again, why would anyone tell you that IMMEDIATE, IDENTIFIABLE, and INARGUABLE threats to the environment as electric cars (which have electric motors which have rare earth metals and lead in their construction) is SOMEHOW better than POSSIBLE, THEORETICAL, and DEBATED threat to the environment?

          Oh yes, someone has a buck to make off of you. You can scream about how evil Big Oil is all day but the fact is that Small Electric just wants a piece of that pie.

  • Rob

    All of those satellites and drones are worthless when you have a generation of 29 (or 30) year olds who live underground. Figuratively under a mountain of college debt for majors they’ll never use and literally in their parents’ basements.

  • 8gary8

    Obama is a convoluted, charismatic, politician. Like many, he believes numerous self-proclaimed assertions of himself to be true. Others suggest he genuinely enjoys his controversial, enigmatic, self. For myself, I believe him, perhaps wrongly, to be Machiavellian in nature. In short, I have difficulty in trusting this man and his administration.

  • Right Wired

    Both Snowden and Obama are foreign nationals now.

    • Tim jones

      The thing is, Snowden was actually born here.

  • Squirrel!

    He said jets. No mention of drones.

    • Jason Hunt

      Ouch! Good point.

  • Jeremy

    Obama is seen as a joke by leaders all over the world and this emphasizes it more.

  • Terry Clark

    I’m having waffles for breakfast tomorrow Mr. Obama, care for some waffeling ( sorry waffles) with me ?

  • jebjr

    Obama won’t scramble jets for anything, be it Snowden or Benghazi.
