If ignorance is bliss, the Obama administration must be on cloud nine.

If today’s Jay Carney is to be taken at his word, somehow, Barack Obama and friends have managed to run the country for the past four-plus years without having the slightest clue as to what’s going on. During today’s press briefing, Carney repeatedly — and miserably, by the way — attempted to deflect probing questions by insisting that the president just doesn’t know enough about brewing scandals to comment.

Carney: Obama can’t comment on AP phone records story because it’s an open investigation, and that would be acting stupidly.

“Let’s not RUSH to conclusions!” or act stupidly.

“If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” #CantCommentOnACriminalnvestigation

Fuck you Carney. Inappropriately jumping to conclusions about Sandy Hook wasn’t an issue for the White House and you didn’t whine about that

Terrorist attacks on Americans in Benghazi? That can’t be right! IRS going after conservative groups? The devil, you say! Justice Department secretly obtaining reporters’ phone records? Whatchu talkin’ ’bout?

It truly is amazing how an outfit headed by the smartest president evah is so stunningly unaware. Citizens can’t help but take notice:

Does Obama know about anything that goes on in his own administration?

— Stephen Gutowski (@collegepolitico) May 14, 2013

Uh …

Shorter Jay Carney: “Listen, media, the President doesn’t know Sh*t, okay?”

— John Nolte(@NolteNC) May 14, 2013

Shorter Carney: We don’t know anything, and we can’t comment.Except #Benghazi, which is a “circus.” #IRS #AP

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) May 14, 2013

Indeed. “A political circus.”

Shorter Jay Carney: every agency within the Executive Branch has gone rogue and we don’t know what the hell they’re doing. @presssec

“Guess I’ll turn on the news to see what the government is up to” – The President of the United States

— Andy Levy (@andylevy) May 14, 2013

Well, that is Obama’s favorite way of finding out what’s happening right under his nose.

RT @liz_cheney: This Carney briefing is disgraceful. White House “has no knowledge” about #IRS, #AP, #Benghazi. Buck stops everywhere else.

— Heather (@hmfearny) May 14, 2013

“We have no idea about anything tgoing on in our own administration. But, we’re totally qualified to run your health care!” – Jay Carney

— Kevin Eder (@keder) May 14, 2013

Defense=ignorance of own agencies. RT @rickklein: Carney says categorically that no one at WH was aware of IRS actions until last few weeks

— Brian Faughnan (@BrianFaughnan) May 14, 2013

For being a man of the people, Obama’s pretty clueless on current events, huh? #Scandalpalooza

— RB (@RBPundit) May 14, 2013

Does the Obama White House know anything?

–> RT @kasie: So what DOES the White House know about what the government is doing?

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) May 14, 2013

Things the White House knows: Who the AP called for a few months. Things they don’t know: How IRS did this; Who attacked Benghazi.

— J.P. Freire (@JPFreire) May 14, 2013

Unbelievable.

Hard to argue against government being out of control when the president doesn’t have control over government.

— J.P. Freire (@JPFreire) May 14, 2013

So, what purpose does this administration serve? Whatever you do, don’t ask Carney:

Shorter presser: Reporter: “Jay, can you explain these multiple scandals?” Jay: “Sorry, I can’t comment on a specific presidency.”

— David Limbaugh (@DavidLimbaugh) May 14, 2013

Update:

While Carney dodges reporters’ questions, tweeters list things Jay Carney DOES know
