This afternoon, Jay Carney told reporters that President Obama had been briefed on the shooting situation at LAX:

Gee, that’s nice.

It must be, since we’re constantly hearing that Obama is the last to know about, well, everything.

Apparently the president is only good at keeping track of disasters that don’t have his fingerprints all over them.

  • pinupartist

    Because a GUN did it, that’s why. Benghazi, spying, health care–those are all secondary to the scourge of GUNS! So automatic they fire themselves!

    Also, local authorities handled it, so he doesn’t have to do anything anyway. It’s like watching a basketball game to him. What a sphincter.

    Gee, I wonder what Musket Morgan will be talking about this evening?

    The mind wanders….meanwhile, NBC is already reporting he had “strong, anti-government views.” Want a drinking game tonight? Toss one up each time a liberal pundit calls a rifle an “assault rifle.” These tools STILL think the “AR” in AR-15 stands for “assault rifle.”

    Here we go again folks. My guess? He was a former TSA screener who got fired.
    I’m probably wrong, but I’ll wager there is a connection here either as a former employee or someone who was “hassled,” in his eyes, by the TSA.

      AR doesn’t stand for Assault Rifle?? Are you sure?? 😉

    • bungopony

      And doubtless a long,fruitfless/ful relationship with the local constabulary/pharmacist/”mental health professional..

  • HanaFiveO

    Amazing the things that the POTUS does/does not get briefed on. What was the deciding factor here, union involvement (TSA)? Fears of big ticket donors being tapped? High hopes that maybe, finally this shooter will not be an Obama supporter Manchurian candidate type?

    & sometime tonight he’ll bust in on your TV claiming that if we rid our society of these evil weapons we will be safer…

    Listen y’all, this is standard for an ineffectual manager. You’ve probably all seen this at some point in your lives. A manager that is utterly clueless on major problems has to dive deep into the minutiae in order to appear like they’re getting something done. It’s sad to see it happening on a national scale, but that’s exactly what it is.

    • Maxx

      Behind closed doors, I can tell you they’re happy up there. This gives his court jesters and boot lickers in Washington a day off the front pages, especially noting this shooting came within 24 hours of the nation learning that on the day ACA debuted, in all likelihood, 10x more Mexicans crossed our border illegally than those Americans who successfully signed up for Obamacare.

      Come to think of it, tonight might be the first night in three weeks, Chris Matthews won’t open up his show obsessing about the “irrelevant” Ted Cruz.

      • bungopony

        Chris is brilliant,but which is he,court jester or boot lick-er,never mind!

    • Scorpion

      That’s a seagull manager.

  • R W Schmidt

    Any bad news about a gun is just more “ammo” for the Obama spin meisters to push gun control again.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      Right time for a great distraction, impunity, impunity, impunity, impunity to All Americans…I will fix this other debacle…>>>Guns<<<. DaddyGovt will fix that, because he can't fix the debacle that he created…ObamaCrapCare-RoadToSinglePayerCommieCare…(big sigh).

      “Mr President, it’s a place where we can land Air force One on your golfing holidays”

  • Clayton Grant

    Obama is only breifed on things he had nothing to do with.

    • trixiewoobeans

      And he’s only briefed on things he cares deeply about, like gun-control.

  • Steven A

    He’s been averse to finding things out in time for it to be relevant ever since he had to drink beer with a white dude for saying the guy acted stupidly.

  • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

    So like an an airport shooting is more important than one of our Embassy’s being attacked? just sayin’

    • arttie

      It occurred during normal business hours and he wasn’t on the purring green. He had to take the briefing.

  • thedumbblonde

    Expect a sternly worded speech about gun-control to distract from Obamacare. Film at 11.

  • BadGirloftheNorth

    Well he needs to be ‘briefed’ or ‘boxered’ his liar liar pants on fire pants have gone up in flames so much I am sure he was ‘debriefed’ a time or a thousand. So briefing is good. At least we won’t need eye bleach. OY! He is such a looooooser.

    • ELC

      If he’s briefed that means he has to clear the smog from between his ears or in other words do the job the morans voted him in for. He’s probably feels happier that he’s clueless. Odumbo plants fires wherever he goes…its the job he loves to do…spread the lies everywhere. You know as a prez you are not doing well when another former Democrap Prez knocks you to the public. Jimmy Carter has come out blasting Odumbo. It takes one idiot prez to knock another idiot prez.

    • tobsters777

      Like the Progressive Insurance commercial… (looks like boxers)

    “Jay Carney says President has been briefed on shooting at #LAX”

    So the President was watching cable news when it happened?

  • ObamaFail

    Obama’s been briefed on LAX for ONE reason. So he can exploit it to distract from the joke that is Obamacare.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Don’t worry, by tomorrow he’ll disavow any and all knowledge of it.

  • http://www.thepiratescove.us/ William_Teach

    Has anyone told Obama about all the murders in Chicago yet?

    • ObamaFail

      Those are committed by black gang bangers, so the libs have nothing but pride in regards to the gun violence in Chicago. It’s those evil law-abiding gun owners the libs and Dems care about.

  • John Howard

    Gee, this means he knows more about LAX that Benghazi! Or CGI Federal!

  • lcky9

    I wonder if they brief him on all the black on black shooting in CHICAGO??? seems they don’t since he thinks all other shootings are MORE important..The week they had flags flying at half staff for the shooting at the NAVAL base HOW many blacks were shot by other blacks in his home town and NO ONE did anything for them.. and CHICAGO is a GUN FREE ZONE also since the only ones who can afford to have one are the RICH..
