It’s a good thing the White House holds those press briefings, because how else would the President of the United States and his staff learn what’s going on in the world? Obama doesn’t get to watch TV during the day, so he learns about breaking scandals the same time the rest of us do, and sometimes much later. It’s no surprise, then, that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney claims the White House didn’t know anything about Eric Holder and the Justice Department pulling the phone records of AP reporters.

The Department of Justice? That’s just another independent organization, like the IRS or the State Department or the Vice President or @barackobama.

… and that’s the way they’d like to keep it, thanks.

      That is a long list of lies from Obama. And that doesn’t include the lies he’s told about some of his policies.

    • Michael R Bardsley

      Apparently the 1/2 of America that voted for him… and still ARE drinking that Koolaid.

      • starr123

        You are so correct. Do any of these ppl even read or watch the news?I think they are of the huge percentage of ppl who voted Obama in just to get the freebies and I am not talking about the people on Medicaid who need it. So many people misunderstood what so many were saying about that 47% who receive that help. One FB friend even scanned and posted his medicare card to show he had worked many decades then retired and drew his check which he certainly was entitled to but he took it the wrong way and felt Romney was talking about retirees and our military who need so badly what VA offers them. That 1/2 you are speaking of you know would vote him in for a 3rd time if they could. If not for them he would never have won the first time. And yeah,that Koolaid just keeps flowing,doesn’t it?

    • Bruce Berens

      About half the people.

    • starr123

      It’s apparent that Obama has become much more delusional than I thought. And Jay Carney is a pathetic shell of a man. How he can stand up there each time and parrot the lies and garbage he does is beyond me. Obama never knows nothing…how can he stay in the WH as he knows nothing about nothing then Jay Carney comes on and tries to make us believe Obama has no authority on all these Departments…therefore out of his hands. These 2 clowns are clamped on the IRS deal first being known to them just last Friday when it’s already known how far back(so far) that it’s been going on. Who do they think they are kidding?

      • Junie3

        Man, somebody sure knows something in that admin, they’re leaking it all out. Obama probably needs to book a vacation about now.

        • Red Fred

          If Jay Carney EVER wants any respect he is simply going to HAVE to resign. Yesterday.

    Hey, White House, a little less keeping up with the Kardashians, a little more doing your job. Or never mind, you all suck at that anyway.
    I guess Obama isn’t the only one who watches Homeland while pretending to work.

    • Adi

      His favourite show must be ‘The Sopranos’ since he is channeling them all the time.

  • FreedomFighter

    Its like a broken record. Its the same excuse over and over again. They never know anything. Does Obama and his administration even know they are located in Washington D.C.???

    • ObamaFail

      They didn’t know until the news told them apparently.

    • Adi

      Obama knows Hawaii is located in Asia, as for Washington it is actually called The Great City of Barackopolis, capitol of the 57 states. Of course everyone in Austria speaks Austrian, not Australian.

        plus he is so cool hangin with Jay z and wife and the rest of hollyweird and if he feels like playing golf just call Tiger it only will cost taxpayers about 7 mill

    This President Kardashian Admin. is a pathetic joke. The last 48 Hours of release of all the new scandals…IRS, AP/DOJ , Bengazi and what is the chief celebrity out doing today ? A fundraiser s in NYC… Look to Axelrod and Plouffe on all of these scandals as they called all the shots with quiet little Valerie Jarret.
    Remember all happened during election time, and we all know they will stoop to any level to get reelected.
    Where is a drone when we need one?

    • starr123

      Strange how the only things he’s done while in office is play golf,vacation and do fundraisers. I think he doesn’t know he won the last election and if spent just a little of his time working at the WH he might have gotten a few things done.

      • TXKracker

        So True, BHO is so over his head. He has been successful in dividing, weakening, apologizing, blaming and destroying our country.

    Yeah, the DOJ is tapping the phone lines of ONE HUNDRED AP REPORTERS and the White House knows jack about it.

    Believe that, you’re either an idiot or merely completely and utterly morally bereft. Willing to lie for any reason. Agenda to be fulfilled by any means necessary. Even if it means breaking the law and literally gutting the Constitution.

    Carney can’t even spin. He’s only been grilled once in five years, he literally doesn’t know how to do his job because he literally has never done it before.

    And if the media tolerates this, well that’s literally putting the headstone on top of their dead profession.

    • Kathy

      Hey! They can’t have someone leaking the truth, now can they?

  • massjim

    Obama knows nothing about Benghazi, nothing about the IRS, nothing about AP phone records and the DOJ. But he knows all about the sex lives of NBA players. This is all becoming one long sad joke. He never knows anything about anything. Sadly, he is probably right. He, Obama, knows nothing about anything.

    Capt Renault- ” Shocked, shocked to find gambling going on here”

    This is absolute abuse of govt power- AG Holder’s DOJ had no authorized warrant on seizing phone records of AP business phone, as well as the private phone records of all of the AP Journalists.

    Between the the White House, IRS, DHS, and DOJ, this is what a tyrannical out of control govt looks like, acts like, says and does, and something had better be done to stop it.- ie; Congressional Grand Jury Inquiries, firings and prosecutions, and finally Impeachment.

    So we have several independent agencies running around doing whatever the hell they want to with no guidance from anyone?? Who’s running the freakin’ government?
