All the Stuff Obama Didn’t Know About

by Sean Hackbarth

At his press conference, President Obama said he didn’t know that so many people would get their health insurance cancelled:

My expectation was that for 98 percent of the American people, either it genuinely wouldn’t change at all or they’d be pleasantly surprised with the options they find in the marketplace and that the grandfather clause would cover the rest. That proved not to be the case, and that’s on me.

Here are a few other things the President didn’t know or wasn’t told:

  • USA Today: NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
  • CNN: HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
  • Politico: Senior W.H. Staff Knew Of IRS Investigation, Did Not Tell Obama
  • Weekly Standard: Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation
  • Business Insider: The White House Says It Had No Idea The DOJ Seized The AP’s Phone Records
  • Real Clear Politics: Carney: Obama Didn’t Know About Fast & Furious Until He Saw It In Media

I’m not surprised that public opposition to Obamacare grows. [via memeorandum]

“That’s on me.” No, it’s a bit too convenient to blame this entirely on the lame duck. It’s also on all the Democratic legislators who voted for it, and it’s on the wonk-pundits who assured us that Obamacare wouldn’t be so bad, and it’s on the activists who credulously swallowed those assurances and helped push the legislation through.
