President Obama Blames His Scandals on Fox News

President Obama continues to play the blame game. Before the Super Bowl, Fox aired the president’s interview with Bill O’Reilly and the conversation was indeed tense. The President was combative and unapologetic, even having the gall to make a couple of ridiculous claims.

Here’s the first one – all of my scandals are Fox News’ fault! In the same breath he also said that there wasn’t even “a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS scandal.

That’s right folks, keep moving along – there is nothing to see here.

Fast and Furious? “All Fox News’ fault. I’m not sure how – it just is.”

The IRS scandal? “Just a paperwork issue in our Cincinnati office.”

The NSA spying on Americans? “Hey! President Bush did it so you can’t have a problem with it… even though you didn’t know about it until now.”

The Justice Department never seeming to be able to finish (or even really start) an investigation? “Why, the wheels of justice just turn slowly. I’m sure they’ll finish their investigations after my Presidency ends. No worries.”

Obamacare disaster? “The Republicans were being mean.”

Worst economic recovery EVER. “President Bush!”

Chinese dominance growing – while American influence diminishes? “Wait, what? Oh, that’s Bush’s fault too.”

The resurgence of Al-Qaeda? Disasters in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt and soon Iran? “President Bush! Again! Don’t you know that I won a Nobel Peace Prize for fixing the Middle East?”

It’s just so gross.
