Didn't you know? Obama learns everything from the news reports. Makes you wonder what in the world he does 24/7 other than play golf and complain about conservatives.

"I didn't know. No one told me. I just found out. Make no mistake and let me be clear, I didn't know..." For as much as the community organizer doesn't know, I cannot understand how in the he** he ever got elected, except for one very important item...the voters that elected him know even less!

Obama's staff cannot see problems unless it will criticize republicans? I'm sure Obama knows his golf scores...how could he not know something so important as profiling such a large group for so long. There is no excuse for Obama and his staff and their typical liberal approach to problems and not taking responsibility.

There is only one person who is supposed to be running the government and the IRS--and that is the President--Obama. Does he think he is still campaigning? Does he think this is a game? Somebody better tell him that he is in a real world and not a university classroom. Shame!

The NYTs reports that Obama knew about the IRS issue in June of 2012 (until we learn more). So he fires the IRS commissioner this week? Drip, drip, drip...

If the Treasury department knew early last year and they didnt tell Obama, I would say that is an entire entity of the government that should be dissolved. In the last month, Obama didnt know about the Russians warning about the terrorists that were under the microscope of the FBI and the CIA. He didnt know about his administration targeting the AP. He didnt know about Benghazi, and now he didnt know about the IRS targeting specific groups dating back over a year? Wow. All I get from this latest claim is Obama doesnt know much.......Does anyone trust this administration?

Really?? How stupid do they think we are?? He is the POTUS, he knows everything days before any of us even hear a whisper about this stuff.

There are incompetent bosses that are not aware of what is going on. They are required to resign or are fired.
