Lightning strikes again. In the same place. For the eighth time. CBS’s Bill Plante, along with the rest of the Obama media, doesn’t even take notice of this utter impossibility.
President OOTL (Out of The Loop) claims to have learned about Hillary’s email system from news reports.
President Obama says he first learned from news reports that his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, used a private email account during her tenure, amid reports the White House and State Department may have known as far back as last August that Clinton did not use government email.
“The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” Obama told CBS’ Bill Plante, in response to a question of when the president learned of Clinton’s use of a private email account for conducting government business.
Obama, in an interview with CBS aired Sunday, continued to stand by his claims that “the policy of my administration is to encourage transparency… and that’s why my emails — the BlackBerry that I carry around — all those records are available and archived and I’m glad that Hillary has instructed that those emails that had to do with official business need to be disclosed.”
This is really curious, since the White House was notified of the violation back in August:
The White House, State Department and Hillary Clinton’s personal office knew in August that House Republicans had received information showing that the former secretary of state conducted official government business through her private email account — and Clinton’s staff made the decision to keep quiet.
Sources familiar with the discussions say key people in the Obama administration and on Clinton’s staff were aware that the revelation could be explosive for the all-but-announced candidate for president. But those involved deferred to Clinton’s aides, and they decided not to respond.
Sharyl Atkisson observes that this is the eighth time Obama has learned something critical to his administration from the new media:
1. Controversial Air Force One Photo Op Flyover
2. Fast and Furious Cross-Border Operation Supplying Guns to Cartels
3. Gen. Petraeus’ Sex Scandal
4. The IRS Using Nixonian Tactics Against Conservative Groups
The rest are at the link.
Thing is, I don’t know how he can learn anything from the news because he doesn’t watch the news. Back in August he said he doesn’t watch the news because:
“whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.”
Unless it’s something important. But that was like so….August. Remember how I always say liberals have zero long term memory? Not even six months’ worth.
Obama, according to Obama, spends most of his morning watching ESPN and golfing in the afternoons.
I know the press is hopelessly biased. I know the press is stupid. I know the press doesn’t get tough on Obama else he throws them off the big plane. But there comes a point at which, despite their low self esteem and long departed credibility, you would think that at some point members of the lamestream media have to ask themselves
“What the f*ck?”
Because you members of the press sure look like idiots to me. When you interview Obama and he says he learned of Hillary’s misdeeds “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports” and you don’t burst out laughing, something’s really wrong with you.
Fatally wrong. Just how much bulls*t can you swallow with a straight face?
We should all be so fortunate to have this protective system of incompetent fools surrounding us.
And just like that, we learn Obama did exchange emails with Hillary and somehow the smartest man on Earth didn’t notice it was not on a .gov address?
Obama did remind me of one of my favorite songs:
