Barack Obama And Being A Manager

Barack Obama

Listening to the back and forth that the Obama White House is contributing to surrounding:

  1. Benghazi
  2. IRS
  3. AP

I have noticed a pattern.  In each of the three scandals he’s facing, Obama has been eager to point out that he’s not been involved or knew of the activities.

Which brings me to the point:

What exactly DOES he know about?  What on earth does this man do if he isn’t aware of the activities of his direct reports?  How does he not know that Eric Holder is confiscating AP phone records as a result of an investigation of leaks?  How does he not know what Hillary Clinton is doing surrounding Benghazi?  And how in the name of heaven does he not know what the IRS is doing?

As nickgb help me realize, this may not be a case of scandal, rather, Hanlon’s Razor might be at work:

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Though in this case, I like Napoleon’s version better:

Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence

Indeed.
