This montage of Obama as the ‘bystander president’ must’ve been killing Mika while it was playing:

  1. When a politician claims so many times that they were not aware a policy was in place or that a situation occurred, but boasts about being the leader and at the helm of some of the most dramatic changes in our country history, one is only left to believe that repetitive claim of “not knowing” and being “unaware” is actually a policy (itself) that has been established by this administration. It is a policy of “I’m in charge of everything and I am in charge of nothing.”

  2. A President that is more interested tearing down this country:

    EF obama, EF his Affordable Care Act, Oh EF obama, Impeach the prick just on these alone!!

    • Obamacare not only is unconstitutional but illegally bypasses
    Congress, infringes on states’ rights and marking an unprecedented and
    unauthorized expansion of IRS power.

    • Sidestepping Congress, Obama already has granted largely
    unreported de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens using illicit
    interagency directives and executive orders.

    • The Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by
    releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what
    is publicly known.

    • The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi
    attack, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S.
    mission prior to the assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of

    • Illicit edicts on gun control in addition to the deadly “Fast and
    Furious” gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect
    fraudulent gun data.

    • From “fusion centers” to data mining to drones to alarming
    Department of Homeland Security power grabs, how U.S. citizens are fast
    arriving at the stage of living under a virtual surveillance regime.

    • New evidence of rank corruption, cronyism and impeachable offenses
    related to Obama’s first-term “green” funding adventures.

    • The illegality of leading a U.S.-NATO military campaign without congressional approval.

    • Obama has weakened America both domestically and abroad by
    emboldening enemies, tacitly supporting a Muslim Brotherhood revolution,
    spurning allies and minimizing the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.

      1. you lost all credibility, if you ever had any, with that remark. racism is for derelict morons.

  3. A president left in the dark my a$$. Everything he is doing has a purpose and is very well his intensions.

  4. Is is very dangerous to elect a man that can’t be criticized because of the color of his skin, unless, of course, he is a conservative like Dr. Carson, Allen West, or Herman Cain.

  5. The know-nothing President in action. Too busy playing golf, staying at plush resorts, and sending his wife on overseas vacations…all on the taxpayer’s dime. This proves his “czars” run the show then? Please. He is in the loop. This guy’s worse than Nixon and Slick Willie ever were.

  6. Has anyone told him he is pResident and that he has the most powerful information gathering machine in the world at his fingertips?

  7. I’m a mushroom.They keep me in the dark and feed me bulls__t!Leading from behind.But from what I hear he is used to bringing up the rear.

    1. And this is exactly what this clown is doing to the American People.. We are getting it the rear from this fraud…

  8. Mica always looked a little pained in my opinion. But one thing we know for sure, obama watches a lot of TV.

  9. Barry: “I deny everything and demand proof. I know none of this is my fault because Valerie makes all the decisions for me, so how could I possibly be aware of any of it.

    Bystander President? Wait.

    Valerie, is that good or bad? Oh, bad? Then H*ll no, I’m not a bystander President.

    What time is my golf game?”

  10. He certainly has time to watch a lot of news.

    However, no time to rescue the US citizens in Benghazi.

  11. Why do we need a president who knows nothing about what his administration is doing. Could it be that Valerie Jarrett is the real president and Obama is her fundraiser.

  12. He has the title of Mr. President, but when I see him I see a Hitler, Mao, Stalin in the making and I fully expect him to cause martial law near the end of his term to keep him in power for as long as he wishes.

  13. Obama is simply a puppet. The puppetmasters are Valerie Jarrett and George Soros. This is why he doesn’t know what’s going on.

  14. Likewise in the Soviet Union, people would say when they experienced injustices from the State, “If only Stalin knew! He wouldn’t allow this!”
    But he did know – not individual cases usually, but he knew what the system was about. And what it was about was magnifying the State over individuals, and any individual who gets in the way or who objects must be taken out.

  15. Obama: “I did not know anything….” that sums up his qualifications to be president perfectly.

  16. This man acts like a three year old, “I did not have my hand in the cookie jar.”

    What a national embarrassment. Cheney is right, no one respects us and no one fears us.

  17. Obama; but, But, BUT, REALLY, I know NOTHING!

    Nazi Boy George SOROS bought me this job with his gazillions of dollars! He said ALL I would hafta do is go on vacations and play lotsa golf!

  18. Obama is “unaware” of anything bad happening in his administration.

  19. Everything goes through Valerie Jarrett, she is running the show. BHO did not meet with the insurance executives that the media said he was going to meet with Jarrett did. She is calling the shots not BHO. If you say a word about her or disagree with her you are gone. Jarrett is a crony capitalist, check it out. How does a person like her not qualified, no experience become chief of staff and advisor to BHO? Did you ever check BHO’s daily schedule, he does nothing his day starts at 10:30 am has a meeting with Biden than they go to lunch. His meme is “he never knows nothing” until after the fact. Most former presidents have daily meetings and are informed of what is going on, evidently nobody tells him nothing? That is incompetence by his staff, Jarrett and BHO.

  20. Obama must be watching lots of reruns of the show “Hogans Heros”. He sounds just like Sgt. Schultz,”I know nut tink, nut tink”!

  21. What a pile of hooey, but it’s got to be a hard lump to swallow for MSLSD if they’re forced to air such a piece against their dear leader. But then again, maybe this is actually a shameless plug for the Lean FORWARD ‘news’ station- I’m surprised dear leader didn’t just say, “I learned it on MSNBC”, but I imagine that the 5 or so viewers will see it that way.

    1. Hey West Coast, thought I should let you know that one of their viewers called in sick today and couldn’t watch the show. Rumor has it he partied way too hard last night and is paying for it today. Oh well.

  22. So, Obama, being the leader of the free world, and the most powerful (though questionable these day) nation on earth, gets his information, not from White House briefings within his own administration, but from cable news outlets like you and I?

    And you expect me to believe that BS?

    1. GASP! Are you saying that da marxist prez would lie? Say it ain’t so! LOL! If Obie is moving his lips, he is lying!

  23. Being a bystander lets Obama get away with too much and anyone who believes he is doesn’t understand how evil he is. He not only knows he probably orchestrates these scandals. Either way its his administration and he needs to be held accountable.

  24. I truly doubt he’s a bystander president. It’s implausible any president not to be brief on such matters. But Obama has the media and every Democrat in Congress covering his butt and bull that he’s just like Sgt Schultz who doesn’t know nothing; give me a break.

        1. And why does she get full secret service coverage? Because once we water board her we’ll find the truth.

          1. Now that’s something we can all agree on; heck, most of us would love to witness Jarrett’s waterboarding for truth quest :).

                1. Hell, I’ve been waterboarded in training. There are a few seconds of panic right before you pass out but during swim qualifications we used to challenge each other to swim laps under water until we blacked out so drowning is no longer a fear. Coughing up water from your lungs after they drag you out is no fun, but what the hell. I can think of worse ways to go.

                2. Kinda of ironic how so many lefties and RINOs like McCain refer to it as torture while for the Marines and other military branches it’s called basic training.

                3. Precisely. It’s called SERE training, in the event that you are captured by the enemy so you have an idea of what you can expect in treatment. Ask a SEAL or our Green Beret. They’ve been through it too. It isn’t torture when you’ve already accepted death. I am far too spiritual and trust God to be afraid of dying. Cowards and tyrants, on the other hand, tend to be athiests who go to hell. I understand their fear.

  25. Hard to know what is going on in the country when you have so few people working for you…..LMAO…..what a douche bag liar

    1. And (1) how to reach Tiger Woods private instructor; (2) how to direct his staff to arrange his $100 million vacations (3) how to inflict pain on Americans during sequester and the shutdown.
      Sorry had to add to your great start.

  26. Obama is either the biggest DUMBASS that has ever walked the land or he is a Nazi MF that should be tried for espionage and treason..

    1. Definitely fits under the Constitutional section on Treason…..How unfortunate Bob Goodlatte is focused on amnesty instead of his REAL role as head of Judiciary Committee.

  27. The strangely resilient approval #s for Obama seem to indicate that the left and the Dem party faithful do not expect much at all from their leaders. Otherwise, this president would be engulfed in the myriad of scandals, incompetences, and economic failure that rivals other western entitlement states who value equality OVER freedom, to predictable, impoverishing and politician empowering results.

  28. The only thing he’s concerned about, I mean REALLY concerned about, is that he gets his life of free living off our dime, and when he’s gonna be able to get back to his golf game … oh, and his next citizen-paid vacation. Other than that, he’s just kickin back waiting on 2016 so he can get the hell outta there …

  29. This video reminds me of those old Halloween flash videos where they would show puppies and kittens for 30 seconds with soft music, telling you to stare closely, then WHAM! they show the scariest monster face accompanied by a loud scream. I thought of those when Mika showed up in the last second of this video. Almost fell out of my chair.
