So, what will get you to not trust or defend this POTUS? I know some will never speak an ill word of the POTUS, but lets be honest, why do you think that is?

Obama knew troubles of Obamacare website back in March. (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/11/19/obama-administration-warned-about-health-care-website-in-march-report-says/)

It's fine to point out the President's faults, as long as they're actually true. In the case of the OP's post, it was not necessarily true.

The president is like the QB or the Pitcher, he always get the credit or the blame. Whether or not he actually had anything to do with what happened.

So back in April, Obama was briefed about "risks" to the website rollout. And, it went badly so he gets the blame. As if that matters at all, except to the people that already dislike him. This is pretty much a non-event as far as changing people's opinions about the president.

I definitely agree, especially with the final comment. However I will state he (or at least his Administration) seems to go out of their way towards stating that he was "unaware" of many of these "scandals" (whether or not we agree that these are in fact scandals). Essentially it seems to be that the modus operandi for this presidency is that ignorance is preferable to inconsistency (with his 2008 platform). Nothing especially unnatural in the world of politics, but interesting nonetheless.

Perhaps this (http://www.washingtonian.com/articles/people/whos-counting-at-the-white-house-mark-knoller-is/indexp2.php) is a more fair source.

It is silly to count days away from the White House as a 'vacation' without exception. Is a round of golf at Andrews AFB a vacation since the night is spent back at the WH? Is a day at your private property hosting a foreign leader a vacation day?

It is non event to the people who already like him. To the millions expecting an actual rollout of the ACA I would say it is a real event.

I didnt mention how much time he was on vacation, nor did I say I watch Fox. If hes not doing those things, then why has he met so little with his administration and where is he during important times like Bengahzi? Why is it that he cant be told about these big item issues and only finds out when the news reports on them?

Thats a pretty nieve assumption. Why is it that everything that goes wrong or that his administrastion knew about, he was never briefed? But he knows what happens with Gates being arrested, and knows about the TM case, but what really matters, he is left in the dark? He seems to be totally shielded with this "only my administration knew...." and some people seem to eat it up. He didnt know about IRS targeting TEA party, Bengahzi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare website and the fact that you cant actually keep your doctor. I mean seriously, if your kid or troop came up to you and said these exact same excuses, you would hold them accountable.

WJ5 do you really think that if they had advance warning to prevent something to become a scandal wouldn't they worked to fix it? Don't you think its kind on their interest do so?

If you haven't watched the documentary "The President Gatekeepers" from Discovery I highly suggest you do. It puts in great perspective how previous President's Chief of Staff work to maintain the President informed and all the issues accross the world and in the US and what type of information is presented to the President on any given day.

Don't you think Bush would have been more cautious about the Iraq-WMD issue if he known then whats its known now? Don't you think he would have stop 9-11 happening is he had concrete warnings? I mean I can go on and on with each President in history...

I understand you don't like President Obama but its like you want him to be God ...all knowing all powerful. To who else you hold in such a high standard? Did you held Bush 1 or 2 to that standard when they were Presidents?... because they in fact did a lot of lying. Bush 2 did a lot of lying that cause hundreds of thousands of deaths til this very day.

Anyways...there is no politician in the world that want to have a scandal, they live their entire lives preventing scandals from happening and the fact that they happen it shows you how little control just one human being can have over any given process or organization and after all they are humans.

Throughout my career I've seen Commanders get fired due to actions his troops commited even if they were or weren't aware of them. It happens a lot and in politcs we have the same recourse its called ELECTIONS. Now if your side can't even muster to bring a candidate that can win an election that's not the President's fault.

I mean I can go on and on with each President in history...Iraq? Really? You dont think they ever had WMDs? Not saying it was our responsibility to go in and attack, but where do you think Syria got its stock pile of WMDs?

As far as 9/11, they did have warning, and the knowledge, but couldnt piece it all together.


I understand you don't like President Obama but its like you want him to be God ...all knowing all powerful. To who else you hold in such a high standard? Did you held Bush 1 or 2 to that standard when they were Presidents?... because they in fact did a lot of lying. Bush 2 did a lot of lying that cause hundreds of thousands of deaths til this very day.Lets see, Bush didnt "know" about actions of outside organizations. Obama is in the dark about his own administrations and laws that are spelled out as he signed and had passed. Do I hold the Bush 1 and 2 up like I expect from Obama? Sure. I call out the BS of Bush letting the gas prices sore when Clinton worked hard to keep the price of gas under $1.50.

Negative. Anyone not drinking the cool-aid sees this as a big deal. Being absent for 8 hours while your embassy is attacked and/or denying back up even when they were calling for help for hours is not something to be ignored. I dont see how someone can say this isnt a "scandal" (felony).

I disagree. I think it's only a big deal to the right wing seeking to discredit out President. It's already come out thet back up wasnt denied at all. Im I recall correctly 60 minutes even issued an apology for starting the whole "scandal" thing because it turns out their source lied.

To take this a bit further... it could also be that people do not like the reaction of the boss when the boss is presented bad news. That leads to sugar-coating information or leaving out information crucial to the decision making process. I have had bosses in the past that would literally break things when given bad news. I knew the anger was not at the messenger (me) but at the situation. Bad news, unlike wine, does not get better with age.

There are those that feel they should "protect" their boss from some information and that action is viewed as taking care of the boss by providing a layer of insulation. Good intentions perhaps, but the outcome is almost always the opposite effect - damage to the boss. My worst job was when I was a staff NCO of a Medical Brigade. I got the job because the COL chief of staff told me I knew how to say "no" and I could deliver bad news. Man, I hated that job!

I never expect a president to know everything and do everything - that is unrealistic. I do, however, expect the president to appoint advisors that can employ leadership, make sound decisions, and realize that their ultimate loyalty is to the nation and not the man in the oval office.

Yeah, I dispensed with any such notion early on as well. JB fairly heavily embraced the term "liberal" over "progressive", with Bunch the precise opposite is the case. Many do not understand that there is even a dichotomy there, it becomes much more clear when they are called upon to support their individual philosophies. In many ways, equating "modern liberals" to " progressives" is akin to equating "conservatives" and "libertarians".

Several topics seemed to draw out JB more than others, other than simple "conservative bashing". His militant atheism (I would say, psychologically, his anti-Christian zealotry) was certainly among them. However, he had a much greater tendency to be outspoken about foreign interventionism as well, and he loved to engage in prolonged discussions in support of his positions about economics.

It's kind of strange to speak of JB in the "past tense", but I admit I miss many of the discussions we used to have that more-than-likely caused the MTF collective eyes to glaze over. There's a reason one of my short list of MTF friends list is labeled "Banned", despite the sharp contrast in our individual ideologies.

It was certainly his roughest edge, and I feel some partially responsible for him getting out of control. I was conspicuously absent when JB's spun out of control (surprise surprise, I didn't visit the MTFs very much while sitting in the middle of the Indian Ocean) as I did tend to steer him away from letting it steer into open hostility on occasion. Of course, he was and is his own man and had the ultimate control over what actions he took in the MTF and with the forum admins. I will say it became quite a shock when I returned to all the forum turmoil that had occurred during my involuntary sabbatical.

Pretty easy to do, unfortunately, I think psychologically they feel so turned-off by what I believe are significantly negative experiences with certain individual Christians that they feel the attitude is justified and not hypocritical in the least.
