I am having a difficult time in trying to figure this out.

The president can tell us everything about the Kardashians and all the rock stars (“The View”) but his mind is blank on matters of concern to the American people.

He didn’t know about Fast and Furious, in which weapons of all descriptions wound up in the hands of Mexican gangs and a U.S. border agent was killed.

He didn’t know that the U.S. was spying on countries all over the world, which we have been doing ever since most of us can remember.

He didn’t know that families of military people who died in action were not receiving death benefits.

He mind was blank about the IRS targeting the tea party. Really?

He was in the dark about the Justice Department targeting the Associated Press. The dog must have eaten the evidence.

He knew nothing about the Justice Department targeting James Rosen of Fox News. The news network he hates the most.

He did not know anything about Benghazi, a terrorist attack that left four of our people dead. Blamed the whole mess on a video.

Guaranteed that no one would lose their health insurance or their doctor under his health plan. Yet, seems to forget that was not true.

This is the president who caved in to Vladimir Putin and withdrew missile defenses from Poland and the Czechs. These two countries are good allies but now are really upset with the president.

I’m wondering. Remember when Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev of Russia were talking in the White House and Obama thought the microphone was off? He whispered to Medvedev that he would be more flexible after he was re-elected. Did he mean removing the missile defense system? Naw! He would forget something like that. Right?
