The President knew nothing about ATF gun-running, Solyndra’s solar panels or Secret Service prostitutes. Now we learn he knew nothing about terror threats in Libya.
It seems the President has been completely shut out of the government he’s supposed to be running. It’s almost as if his own employees see him as nothing more than an Affirmative Action token hire. They apparently believe he really is just an articulate, clean, bright, nice-looking Black man, someone to be paraded for the cameras occasionally but kept away from all the real decision-making. “Have another round of golf” they tell him, “Don’t worry about us, we’ll take care of everything.” Except they don’t; and he gets blamed for it.
That must suck. I wonder if he’s lonely.
He’s showing some of the signs of having spent four years as a figurehead for others.
