“I Know Nothing” ….

Date posted - October 28, 2013

What do we do when the President Of The United States, “says” he doesn’t know anything going on in his administration?? When will Obama ever take claim for what goes on under his presidency? (for those of you not old enough…the quote “I Know Nothing” comes from a very old TV sitcom of Hogans Heros….Or is it a quote from the 2013 WhiteHouse??)


* Our ‘leader’ claims he knew nothing about Black Liberation Theology Rev. Wright making anti-American speeches. But proof says otherwise.


* Our ‘leader’ claims he knew nothing about the Petraeus affair. The president claimed he knew nothing of the investigation into his CIA chief until after the election despite his Attorney General ordering the FBI to conduct the probe.


* Our ‘leader’ claims he knew nothing about the Fast and Furious gun smuggling deal.


* Our ‘leader’ claims he knew nothing of Ambassador Stevens’ desperate requests for additional security despite his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being intimately involved in the decision to turn those requests down.


* Our ‘leader’ claims the first he heard of his IRS targeting conservatives was from news reports the day the story broke – despite the White House counsel being briefed on the problem two weeks prior to that.


* Our ‘leader’ claims he never knew of problems with the computer system with Obamacare until after the rollout despite insurance companies, outside IT contractors, and his own team warning of catastrophe.


* Our ‘leader’ claims he knew nothing about spying on in particular the Germans and their leaders thru cell phones, and now it is being reported that we have perhaps spied on up to 35 of our allies thru cell phones!!!


* And the list goes on and on….. Do we see a pattern developing here? Barack Obama is the most spectacularly uninformed president in history. Or, he’s a baldfaced liar. Every potentially embarrassing scandal finds our president totally in the dark, betrayed by incompetent (or criminal) aides and advisors. How can it be his fault if he didn’t know?

    :-) I was just telling my husband today that Fox News should play Schulz’s voice saying “I know nothing” along with Obama’s face. You nailed it!!

  2. Idontknow says:

    Let’s just throw in a republican president instead. All problems will be solved.

    • Tim says:

      That was not even mentioned. It is amazing, here again, those supporting Mr Obama, cannot and will not allow him to be criticized or held accountable. I am waiting for the comment to be, ‘he inherited his deceitfulness’. Or, ‘you are racist, so you don’t support him’. Both would be far from the truth. I would hold a republican, democrat, independent or even a tea party leader to the same accountability!! After all, I/we are Americans and our leader deserves to be accountable!!

      • Lee Ann says:

        1. The day that Rev. Wright was saying “Goddamn America” (which was taken completely out of context) they have proven that the Obama family wasnot there, by videotapes.
        2. They have proved that Eric Holder found out about the Fast and Furious and stopped it immediately. Which was a hold over from Bush’s term.
        3. Hillary Clinton knew that the security was not up to par. The State Department requested additional funds TWICE for security, and the GOP turned down the request, once in 2009 and 2011. Boehner refused to bring it up for a vote.
        4. They have found that the IRS investigated the Conservative PAC groups, yes. However, they found out that the IRS was also investigating the liberal PACs.
        5.Both the NSA and the people in the White House have stated that Obama did not know about the NSA listening to private cell phones. However, that all started in 2002, so I’m wondering if Bush knew about it.

        With all the crap going on both at home and around the world, I’m amazed that he can keep up with what he’s trying to keep up with. I don’t object to people disliking our President, however I do object if they dislike our President over a lie.

        • Doug says:

          “They have proved that Eric Holder found out about the Fast and Furious and stopped it immediately” Wrong. They have not proven what Eric Holder knew as the pres cited executive privilege sealing thousands and thousands of documents thus protecting both of their azzes. These would be the same documents that the president claims to also know nothing about, whichs begs the question why use exec privilege in the first place?

          Hillary personaly turned down the security requests. Has nothing to do with the GOP. She’s ultimately responsible.

          For example: You manage a business that has equipment in an area where there are hazards. The equipment is broken, but the proper safety equipment for your workers in inadequete. Your boss is too cheap to replace the safety equipment and you send your workers into an unsafe environment and they are “accidentally” killed. You are responsible. You knew, as you processed the requests for new equipment, and you made the call sending your workers in. Your boss may well share some of the blame, but YOU are responsible. Period.

          Doesn’t matter how you spin it LeAnn. People died on her watch, and she tried to cover it up with a BS story they all knew was a FLAT OUT LIE on day 1.

          Bush probably did know about it. Cheney pushed for a lot of the intelligence gathering. What does that have to do with anything? He left the building 5 years ago. Thanks for being the first and most obvious candidate to try re-directing the blame their way.

          “I’m amazed that he can keep up with what he’s trying to keep up with”. What is he keeping up with? If you take him at face value, he always knows nothing.

        • Tim says:

          Exactly my point in the op-ed…….same old same old….He did not know anything..or it was Bushes fault….or the republicans fault…NEVER will it be Obama’s responcibility, or inadequacy.
          Mr. Obama is a leader who follows the writings and teachings of one Saul Alinsky… it was Alinsky who spent his life teaching would-be radicals (like Obama) that you can say what you have to say to get over the hump, but once you’re over the hump, you do whatever you want to do. In other words, it’s okay to present yourself as something moderate, even centrist, for the purposes of securing power, and once you’ve secured that power it is perfectly acceptable to revert to who (and what) you really are.
          This scares me!! Who really is this ‘leader’?

      • Idontknow says:

        I’m actually a registered republican who doesn’t support Obama. I support whoever is best for this country, and lately, all political figures are all the same

  3. Doug says:

    The good news is, Democratic lawmakers are working on a proposal to delay Obamacare. That’s a remarkable idea. Too bad the Rebublicans didn’t think of that.

    They would like the ACA to be delayed until after the 2014 elections. What a shocker.

    Hillary should be prosecuted for failing to act leading up to events in Benghazi, failing to act when they were under attack, and facilitating the cover-up afterward.

    • Free Man says:

      No delay now. Let the pain burn in deep before 2014.

    • Tim says:

      Guess what the following link reiterates my point exactly. Notice the headlines:
      THE WHITE HOUSE DELAYS INDIVIDUAL MANDATES… here does not say “Pres. Obama delays individual mandates” (even tho we all know it was him) Again he seems to not take ‘personal’ responcibility. So now, after we just went thru this fight about delaying this program in the senate and the house, the white house on its own can just come out and change it? It seems to me, like Mr. Obama can just do whatever he wants to. I thought it was a law? Now Obama is changing the law?
      My 2nd point. How many people know this:
      Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president at CGI Federal, is a Princeton classmate of First Lady Michelle Obama. Did you also know, the Obamacare website, (at the cost to taxpayers in the tune of over 670 million) was a no-bid contract. By a company that since Obama has taken office was awarded numerous federal contracts, as a no-bid contracts!
      Something Stinks!!

  4. Meets says:

    Tim….I agree. No matter who it is everyone needs accountability. You, me, the preacher, the teacher, heck even the president of the USA.

  5. Ashshade says:

    He might as well lie, nobody cares. Nobody that can do anything anyways. If this was 40 – 50 years ago, even just 20 years ago. obama would have been pulled over the coals and thrown out by now. He makes his own laws ignores congress talks down to them like children, he wont show anyone any respect – unless your with him. If your not with him you must be subhuman. Bush did not do anything good for the office of POTUS, but this is just nuts. This whole IRS thing, I don’t even know what to say. I am disgusted.

    Idontknow, you are part of the problem. This super partisan crap has got to go. Don’t get me wrong I’m as red as they get, but red blue purple white gray I don’t care you don’t do this kind of crap. If it happened under your watch stand up and deal with it, even if it means you have to step down for the good of the country. This I don’t know, or ignore, or it was some rouge agents in cincy crap. No It was you, Mr pres, you and your people. Fix it or get out of the way and let someone else – red or blue.

    • Tim says:

      I just happened to catch a few min of MSNBC this morning, the interviewer was talking to Senator John Breaux on Obamacare. It seems to me he told the interviewer that Obama DID mislead the nation on whether or not if you liked your ins. you could keep it. Mr Breaux said, the pres should have said if it meets the requirements of obamacare you could keep it. However Mr. Breaux went on to say, had the pres. said that, the country would have never went for Obamacare. Is the pres losing credibility even in his own party? Is it now finally going to come out that Mr. Obama is deceitful? (a follower of Saul Alinski)

  6. Robert Keller says:

    I don’t like obama because of thousands of lies and his complete incompetence as a human being.

  7. Free Man says:

    Barry Soetoro reminds me of the John Lovits character from Saturday Night Live.

    “If you like your healthcare plan or Doctor you can keep them, Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket.”


  8. Ashshade says:

    Just read this morning, “obama knew that thousands of people would loose doctors and their insurance plans” Nice, how many times did obama say “If you like it yo can keep it”?

  9. Free Man says:

    I always wondered what 1930’s Germany was like, and now I am getting a first hand look.

    • jake says:

      That’s a little far.

      • Ducky says:

        hahaha are you kidding? This is halarious!!

      • German says:

        The only thing far about it, is the lack of death camps. Although, With the Healthcare Law allowing law makers to decide who gets care for what, It’s kinda covert way of doing so. Otherwise, If you REALLY sat down and Compared the two, including the scandals, and pushing for our guns to be taken from us, the control thru health care and spying on so-called allies (why? if you consider them friends). If you look at those and some of the things that happened in ’30s Germany, Its there. Not all of it, YET. But watch as all of our freedoms are slowly dwindling away, piece by piece, its getting there.

        • LazloTu says:

          Paranoia running wild; wow!

          • German says:

            Hey don’t believe me. Do the research. Here’s what the “Executive orders” all contain. You are welcome to verify them for yourself.

            1. #10990 – allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control the highways and seaports. ALREADY DID THIS BY CLOSING FLORIDA COASTLINES

            2. #10995 – allows the government to seize and control the communication media. (THIS INCLUDES INTERNET & CELL PHONES)

            3. #10997 – allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

            4. #11998 – allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

            5. #11000 – allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under the government supervision. Think about work camps in the Soviet Union, Siberia, or in Nazi Germany. (READ #12 TO SEE WHO WILL BE IN CHARGE OF THE “WORK BRIGADES” … ALSO, NAZI GERMANY SENT THOSE WHO DEFIED THE NAZI REGIME TO “WORK CAMPS” … THIS INCLUDED PASTORS WHO REFUSED PREACH THAT HITLER WAS GOD)

            6. #11001- allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions. (MORE PATIENTS + FEWER DOCTORS = PATIENTS NOT GETTING MEDICAL CARE THEY REQUIRE)

            7. #11002 – designates the registration of all people; Postmaster General to operate a national registration. (EASIER TO CONTROL A POPULATION IF EVERYONE IS ON THE LIST)

            8. #11003 – allows the housing and finance authority to relocate communities, and build new housing with public funds (taxpayer money); Designate areas to be abandoned and establish new locations for populations (Concentration camps anyone?). (PEOPLE ARE ALREADY BEING FORCED FROM THEIR HOMES)

            9. #11005 – allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

            10. #11049 – assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies consolidating 21 operative executive orders over a 15-year period. (OBAMA HAS GIVEN HIMSELF THE SOLE POWER TO DETERMINE WHAT CONSTITUTES AN EMERGENCY)

            11. #11051 – specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all executive orders into effect in times of increased internal tensions and economic or financial crisis (which Barack Obama is going out of his way to create). (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU RESEARCH AND GET YOURSELF UPDATED ON THIS ONE!)

            12. #11310 – grant authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in executive orders, institute industrial support to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the president. (A DEFINITE MOTIVE FOR ALLOWING MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS INTO OUR COUNTRY. OBAMA IS NO FOOL; HE KNOWS HE WILL NEED THOSE WILLING TO OBEY HIM TO HEAD THE PENAL AND CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONS…REREAD #5 [EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000]; #7 [EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002]; #8 [EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003]; #11 [EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051]

            13. #11921 – allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in the United States financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. GIVING OBAMA MORE TIME TO “CHANGE” OUR NATION THAN HITLER REQUIRED TO INFILTRATE AND EVENTUALLY DESTROY GERMANY

          • Tim says:

            Hillarious. Paranoia. Call it what you like. It is here, and we Americans are stuck with him. The soviets even like him!! Think about this…Snowden in Russia, two Boston murderers from Russia, unfettered by our OWN gov’t. The list can go on… Check out htis article:

  10. Gladys says:

    Grow up Mr. President! We learned at a very young age to take responsibility for our actions and our words. Excuses and lies always came back to slap us in the face. Maybe if the people that surround the President, and his supporters, would face up and take responsibility and start to show some leadership we might move in a positive direction. Now they are just spinning their wheels in defending all their lies and excuses. It’s getting tiresome to wake up every morning to another “They are responsible.” “I knew nothing about it.” “I’m taking a vacation.” On and on. Those who support his excuses and lies are just enabling his actions.

  11. Tim says:

    Some more information for those who think Mr. Obama’s ‘rule’ is a precurser of something else. If you read all 10 points, ask yourself, does Obama, have a hidden agenda? I am sometimes come out radical…but think about this.. I found this startling article….and quite frankly it scares me!

    “Is it true? Will everyone have to receive a biochip to be part of Obamacare? I have not been able to pin down the exact verbiage, but I found the following that seems to be the documentation pointing to the biochip in the healthcare bill.
    “ In the massive US HEALTHCARE BILL, which your elected representatives voted for without reading, there is a section titled: Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521 – National Medical Device Registry which states:
    “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that—‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and ‘‘(B) is a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable.”

    The language is deliberately vague, but it provides the structure for making America the first nation in the world that would require every U.S. citizen to receive an implanted radio-frequency (RFID) microchip for the purpose of controlling medical care.”
    Ok, the language is vague and does allow for the possibility of chipping people.

  12. Free Man says:

    From CNN, must watch.

    Remember, if you like your current plan you can keep it.

    • Doug says:

      Interesting how people can pay thousands of dollars in taxes every year, and don’t question the federal government’s wasting of those dollars.

      Now when the government begins stealing more dollars every year under the guise of a national health care system, people start to ask questions. This should have happened a long time ago.

  13. Tim says:

    So if HHS secretary Sebelius comes out and says, “Hold me accountable” Not the president… who just took the fall for the leader of the country, again? Who should get fired? It never stops….

  14. Jay says:


    Same argument, different day. Let’s blame the President for everything! Let’s ignore the fact our GOP congress hasn’t held themselves accountable for selfishly shutting down the government, costing millions! Let’s regurgitate everything Fox News tells us! All hail Fox News!

    Please, people. Lighten up. Will you ever be satisfied? Just remember for 2014: if you don’t like how your representatives represented you in our government, VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE!

  15. Robert Keller says:

    I don’t listen to Fox News. I also am not a fan of the gop, especially John McCain and the other cowards. What I have seen are videos of how China executes political prisoners and the incredible suicide rate of the Chinese workers that Obama ignores and continues to borrow money from. Whoever shut down the government in an attempt to stop the borrowing and spending needs to be reelected. – A Libertarian, who listens to 88.5 and 88.9 FM, except between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

  16. concerned says:

    Our military fought in several wars to prevent communism from coming into this country, now it is sneaking in the back door….

    • ha what says:

      Its walking right through the front door! Most Americans are just too stupid to see it, or they are so arrogant that they think it cannot happen here!

      The ones who do see what is happening are being singled out as “Right Wing Nuts”

      We all need to stand up now while we still can. If we don’t do it now while it is still somewhat easy, we sure as hell will not stand up later as it gets much harder!

  17. NWIA Resident says:

    Then do it… I’m tired of these people, all over the internet, saying “we need to do something now”, or “stand up!” your no better than those in Washington that are nothing but talk. “We need to do this”, or “we need to do that”. THEN DO IT! If you don’t like whats going on, then do something ABOUT IT! QUIT waiting for someone else to do it for you. What have you done to change it? Let me guess, “I voted”. Well thats a rigged up system, so what do you have left to do. ORGANIZE, become more than a keyboard political critic, or meeting up to discuss and complain about the current state of things. What good does that do? “I’m gonna meet with my friends about whats wrong with this country, and then post all over the internet hoping someone else will do it because I’m too scared to stand up for my beliefs and principals”. That’s actually no better than sitting on a school bus watching a kid getting picked on, hit, spit on, and just letting it happen and not doing ANYTHING about it, even though you know it’s wrong, Cuz your too worried about what would happen to you or what other people will think of you for doing what is right. Well, then quit whining and crying, and raising your blood pressure, all for nothing. And IT IS all for nothing, If you don’t act on those beliefs.

  18. Jcs says:

    NWIA, what do you plan on doing so the rest of us can follow.

  19. NWIA Resident says:

    I’m actually fine with things, why do I need to start something. Your all the ones with the problem right? Typical response though. Did you even read my post? Because in it I put ” QUIT waiting for someone else to do it for you. What have you done to change it?”. So why do I need to start something for you to follow? Follower and not a leader?

    • Jcs says:

      You sound extremely fired up or angry. So, are you really fine with everything? Is being a follower so bad? At the risk of sounding racist, I’ve seen many cases of too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. What was the
      original question?
