Much of America rejoiced in 2008 when the sharpest and most intelligent president since Thomas Jefferson was elected. Unlike George W. Bush, whose gentleman’s C’s would highlight his intelligence, we now had a constitutional law school professor.
Barack Obama promised the most transparent presidency ever. Now he is faced with three scandals his administration must handle. When questioned about each one, he denies he knows anything about it.
He did not know who handled the security or the “talking points” about Benghazi. He did not know who told the IRS to target conservative organizations. He did not know anything about his Justice Department seizing phone records from The Associated Press. Unlike Richard Nixon who was threatened with impeachment because of what he knew and when he knew it, Barack Obama simply says, “Don’t target me, I don’t know anything.”
