Actually the whole NSA spying on foreign leaders wasn't done to spy on Merkel who was actually Bush's fantasy girl:

ww4.hdnux.com

Learning from Bush's mistakes. Obama wanted to know more about Helle Thorning-Schmidt:

static.guim.co.uk

He needed to know what she was like. What were her turn ons and turn offs. Sure enough his NSA boyz provided enough intel to get closer to her.

I don't know what is funnier:  The administration thinking the US is stoopid enough to believe this is true, or the people that will defend him.

Does Dubya have a single digit number of "blindsides"? I don't think so. I can think of 3 right now without trying...

9/11
Iraq not greeting us as "liberators"
Katrina

Cheney got blindsided by his buddy who walked in front of the shotgun...

Will they follow this story with a list of the truly bizarre criticisms of Obama?
 
2014-06-20 05:46:26 PM  
In a completely unforeseen turn of events, scientists are now telling us that there currently exists no way to predict future events with perfect accuracy and precision. Researchers said they never saw this result coming.
 
2014-06-20 05:48:54 PM  

I don't think anybody was surprised by any of those events,

except for the idiots.

If only Obama had decided to listen to Hari Seldon's lessons on psychohistory all this could have been avoided.

Good call... I guess he was extra-blindsided because the administration had spent the last 2 years before that assuring us that the people who were predicting the crash were just a bunch of Grumpy Guses(Gusses? Gus(es)?).

I'm sure you get the point even though I can't pluralize "Gus".

Whereas Fox News is never blindsided, because they get their reality in-house.
 
2014-06-20 05:57:57 PM  
I'm completely shocked that Benghazi wasn't #1... or even on the list.

/or is their rationale that Obama knew about it and allowed it to happen?

"Isn't it a fact, Dr. Rice, that the August 6 PDB warned against possible attacks in this country? And I ask you whether you recall the title of that PDB?"

"I believe the title was, 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States'."

But they weren't blindsided by 911. They had intelligence reports stating AlQaida was planning something involving planes and tall buildings. Clinton tried to warn GWB about Bin Laden and chimpy mcfarkstick dismissed it altogether.

They were incompetent and arrogant and let that shiat happen on their watch.

Wait for the next 9 things that come out.
 
2014-06-20 06:59:16 PM  
I wonder when somebody's going to tell the Obama administration about the flood of Central American children showing up in the Southwest so they can be blindsided yet again. Or maybe ignorance is the new strategy to avoid getting blindsided: "Hey staff, turn off all the televisions. No more surprises!"

Yes, so he experiences his farkup then goes back and fixes it before his farkup thus nullifying any farkup and continuing in his perfection.

Paradoxes be damned.

kxs401: He can't predict the future?? That's it, I'm never voting for him again.


Pretty much this.

But I do like the fact that they put the supposed IRS 'targeting scandal' on there as being a failure of Obama for not knowing about it ahead of time when the whole point of the the GOP's investigations is to try to tie the actions of the IRS to the white house. So, you see, Obama's a failure for not knowing about it in advance... but if he did know about it in advance, he's using the IRS to attack his political enemies.  LULZ

He only cares that they're poverty stricken here and not poverty stricken back where he thinks they belong.

That didn't stop them from putting the IRS thing on the list.

Still need to read those books.  Is there a suggested reading order?  Do I read them by release date or chronologically?
 
2014-06-20 08:48:01 PM  
I don't think the VA scandal can be counted as it's coming out that Obama has known about the secret wait lists since 2008 and was only lying about just finding out about it.

Gone to Plaid: Do I read them by release date or chronologically?


Yes.

Or, you can listen to the series on the interwebs.

Larry Niven is my favorite SF author, but Asimov is in the top 5. This is a mandatory reading/listening project. You will be quizzed later... :-)

Everyone who cared to pay attention knew about VA wait times. What was unknown (at least at the white house level) was just how much mid-level and high-level echelon were lying and fudging the numbers to make it look like the wait times weren't as bad as they really were.

Thanks for the link!  Now I know what I'll be listening to while sitting in traffic.
