Is Obama The Least Informed, A Liar, Or Just A Figurehead President?

By Susan Duclos

The Department of Justice seizes the Associated Press telephone records and according to Obama's mouthpiece, Jay Carney, "Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the AP."

The IRS targets conservative groups that opposes Obama's agenda, pro-Israel groups that disagree with Obama's policies and Mitt Romney donors that wanted to see Obama lose his reelection and Obama claims, " I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.  I think it was on Friday." (Note- White House Counsel knew back in April)

Four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12 after they had requested and been denied additional security and the White House, via Joe Biden, claimed "We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security."

Fast and Furious, a federal operation allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the  Mexican drug cartels. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

Once again, White House spokesman, Jay Carney said " ....everyone knows the President did not know about this tactic until he heard about it through the media...."

The Solyndra scandal cost at least a half-billion American taxpayer dollars before it went bankrupt, and originally the White House denied knowing the company was on the path to bankruptcy, then ABC News and others reported that the White House Chief of Staff  at the time, Bill Daley, had been informed.

Then  Obama tried to cast blame on the Bush administration and that turned out to be misleading, according to ABC News, that reported at the time "However, he incorrectly suggests Solyndra received its financing from that same 2005 program.  Instead, the company’s $500 million in fast-tracked loan guarantees came from an entirely new section of the program created under Obama by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the stimulus."

 I could go on, all the way back to Tony Rezko, but the point is, that Barack Obama or his official mouthpieces, continuously claim "Obama didn't know" what was going on in the departments that fall under his purview as president of the United States of America.

This leaves three options.

1. Giving Obama the benefit of the doubt, he truly didn't know about any of the things he claims he didn't know about, making him the least informed, out-of-control of his own administration, president, in the history of presidents.

2. He and his mouthpieces are all liars.

3. Obama is nothing more than a figurehead and others are truly running this country.

None of those options are going to be a great legacy when Historians are done with Barack Obama.
