Obama’s in charge and in control. Except when he’s not:
NB: WH says POTUS did not sign off on #Iraq Spec Ops raid that left US solider dead, says it was Def. Sec. Carter's call

Obama isn't signing off on combat missions in a country we're not supposed to be doing combat missions in? https://t.co/pLUeZCNyM3

Omg. The buck never stops with Obama, unless the navy seals get a target then we hear details of Obama's "decision". https://t.co/K1LsBNlGcP

Even by Obama’s standards, this is pitiful https://t.co/IW0Ibw0Qb7

But surprising? Not even remotely.
Obama has spent his entire presidency perfecting the art of blamesmanship. This is just par for the course.

The man has absolutely no interest in accepting responsibility for anything that goes wrong on his watch. How very presidential.

Wow. Throwing tour subordinates under the bus & always refusing to take responsibility. Sounds like the Obama WH. https://t.co/uodk3Q4bLH

What a coward. You're the commander in chief. It's *always* your responsibility. https://t.co/3g3DLOwB24
