The United States of America is being run by low level subordinates.
Their actions are being made unbeknwonst to mid and upper level management.
And of course the Chief Executive NEVER knows anything about any of these actions.
Fast & Furious
AP phone taps
Just to name a few.:cool:
If you don't know what is going on then you can easily pass the buck. It is not about leadership, it is about winning.
just like the old days
but to a higher and higher level each time
when does plausible denyability become straight up incompitance?
He had the "straight up incompetence" covered from the start.
This is not incompetence. The "low level" IRS employees were told to do what they did. Over 75,000 conservative organizations were targeted. It just wasn't the Cincinnati office. A few incompetents did not do the targeting. Asking for the names of donors and volunteers at the organization? For what purpose except to target them? Word is now coming out that some donors received threatening letters from the IRS.
I just heard that the Inspector General's report on his investigation is to be released this week. You can bet that the Treasury Dept., the IRS, the DOJ, and Obama got advance copies.
I don't think this, Benghazi, Fast & Furious or so many of the other scandals are incompetence... But I do believe Obama is incompetent as a Commander in Chief. He has proven it over and over.

Obama also referred to the IRS as an independent agency. Independent of what exactly?
Independent of us saps who pay their wages.
