Over the course of his five years in office, an all too common theme has emerged from the Obama White House that involves someone claiming the President had ‘no idea’ what was going on. From Fast and Furious to Benghazi, the scope of the NSA surveillance techniques to Obamacare rollout glitches, the excuse used most often by this Administration is: The President knew nothing. So if that truly is the case, who is actually running the country?
“Has there been a coup? Could you please point us to the people who are actually running this country because the President doesn't seem to know anything that's happening? He didn't know about Benghazi. He didn't know about gun-running, about the IRS. He didn't know about anything. So who does,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Because you're either lying, or there's been a coup, and this president is woefully misinformed and negligent in his job. Even [MS]NBC rolled this edited piece of the press asking during all of the scandals: What did the President know and when did he know it?”
MSNBC is definitely not known for being critical of anything related to the Obama Administration, but this morning on Morning Joe, even they had to question the wherewithal of the White House.
“That's amazing… If I'm the President of the United States, I name names, I turn around and say it's this person. This person was in charge… All of these people, none of them thought it was important enough to bring it to my desk. They are all fired. And I want you to know their names… What they did was allow me to tell you a falsehood, and that's inexcusable.
What honest person would not have that conversation with the American people today,” Glenn asked. “What person wouldn't be so deeply sorry and so deeply offended that he had people around him that didn't stop him from lying to you? Please America, put this one together.”
“In any sane society that montage ends a presidency,” Stu said.
“We're not a sane society,” Glenn concluded. “We are not a sane society.”
