After Carney claims POTUS knows nada, citizens ask ‘What Aren’t They Telling Obama?’!/RBPundit/status/336563224830955521

As Twitchy reported, during this afternoon’s press briefing, Jay Carney stunningly — and wholly unbelievably — claimed that White House staffers were aware of the IRS targeting conservatives but decided not to tell the president. Maybe they figured he’d eventually read about it in the news!

One reporter got to wondering:!/sunnyright/status/336559527933644801

And, well, that got a bunch of Twitterers thinking: if the president didn’t know about the developing IRS scandal, what else is he unaware of?!/ericearling/status/336556843503599616

Cue #WhatArentTheyTellingObama, which is now racing up the trending topic charts:

Axelrod: Why didn’t insurance cos. tell their customers Obama was lying?!/davidaxelrod/status/398912726275067904

What. A. Worm.

Obama adviser David Axelrod’s tweet is about as desperate and pitiful as it gets, but it’s a question that is easily answered:!/Sovereign71/status/398916363198017537

And what would the White House and Axelrod’s response have been a few months ago if insurance companies sent their customers letters informing them that Obama’s “if you like your plan you can keep your plan, period” promise was a lie?!/freddoso/status/398914258039107584!/laurww/status/398921038731292672

The only way David Axelrod will have a positive effect on the number of insured Americans is if he can figure out a way to turn BS into health insurance.
