President Obama claims not to have known about Fast & Furious. He says he didn't know about Benghazi. He says he didn't know about the IRS dumping on Tea Party applicants for exempt status. Sebelius says he didn't know about the Obamacare website debacle. He will soon say he didn't know that his signature law was predicted by his own administration to prevent millions from keeping their health insurance policy if they like it. (Period!) He says he didn't know that the spies at the NSA were actually doing spying. On us. He says he didn't know that the spies at the NSA were actually doing spying. On our allies. He says he didn't know that there was no such thing as a shovel ready job (at least as far as government bureaucrats are concerned). He didn't know that making loans to "green" companies like Solyndra was throwing money away. That is a truly astonishing level of ignorance being professed by or about the most powerful man in the world. Nixon's presidency ended when the question being asked was "What did he know and when did he know it?" I think Obama's presidency will end with the question "What didn't he know and when didn't he know it?"
