Obama — The buck NEVER stops with him.
He was a spectator in his own Adminstration. Eight years in office, and with every scandal he only learns about it through the news.
Everything is someone else’s fault.
Somehow, Obama had ‘no knowledge’ that IRS was targeting Conservative groups.
Somehow Obama had ‘no knowledge’ of Fast & Furious.
Somehow, Obama had no knowledge of a LOT of things.
And everything else was either Dubya’s fault or the Republicans’ fault.
Miraculously, he never managed to take credit for ANY of the problems in his administration.
And when his AG met on a Tarmac with someone under investigation, less than a week from the time that his Wife (Democratic Presidential candidate) promised her an inducement — ie: that she would retain her job — he didn’t think it necessary to remove her from her office.
Nope. Becuase for a hard-leftist like Obama — EVERYTHING is political. And the tools of government power are to entrench Leftist ideology and to bludgeon the opposition.
We see this in the various cynical political moves Obama made in the months after Trump was elected. Just ask Israel. Or the reclassification of the wiretapping of General Flynn. Or the EPA legislation of the last day in office. Or his various pardons. Or Obama’s last-minute hiring spree of political partisans.
So what POSSIBLE reason would we expect Obama would take responsibility for this?
Like anything else, he has to be DRAGGED — kicking and screaming — to face responsibility for his decisions and involvement. Which are usually done through ‘plausible deniability’. But can it even be seriously denied that his fingerprints are ALL over this one?
“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” Lewis said. “As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”
While Valerie Jarrett said he never ordered it, case closed, Obama’s former speechwriter gave a more nuanced answer:
I'd be careful about reporting that Obama said there was no wiretapping. Statement just said that neither he nor the WH ordered it.

Seeing as Valerie Jarrett just moved in with the Obama’s we can take any denial of hers with a grain of salt. (Or maybe an entire salt lick.)
Obama, a spectator in his own administration. He was only ever a harmless observer.
Spending his post-presidential life quarterbacking the Trump #Resistance from a Washington address, with Valerie Jarret living down the hall? Is that even relevant?
Nothing suspicious there, at all. Nope.
Hey look! Russians!
