For the last few days, we’ve been treated to a familiar refrain, when the White House was asked whether or not President Obama knew U.S. intelligence agencies spied on our allies…
…President Obama didn’t know about it.
Let’s take a little walk down memory lane…
USA Today: NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
CNN: HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
Politico: Senior W.H. Staff Knew Of IRS Investigation, Did Not Tell Obama
Weekly Standard: Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation
Business Insider: The White House Says It Had No Idea The DOJ Seized The AP’s Phone Records
Real Clear Politics: Carney: Obama Didn’t Know About Fast & Furious Until He Saw It In Media
It’s pretty convenient that President Obama never knew about these revelations beforehand. But the excuses are just that…excuses.
The American people deserve better.
NRCC COMMENT: “Americans expect their president to lead, not feign ignorance when the going gets tough. This is just another example of President Obama’s failure of leadership and demonstrates just how important it is to ensure the House provides a check and balance to this out-of-control administration. ” – Matt Gorman, NRCC Spokesman
