Harry Truman, the last adult Democratic president, famously said, "The buck stops here," referencing the awesome responsibility of the chief executive.
How things have changed. The new motto of the current resident of the White House seems to be, "What buck? No one ever told me about a buck. If it stopped here, I must have been playing golf and missed it. I promise to hold those accountable who failed to tell me the buck came calling and didn't leave a message for me."
In addition to not knowing anything about "Fast and Furious," IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, and the lack of security and response to the Benghazi attack, President Barack Obama now depicts himself as a clueless nincompoop about the lies told regarding Obamacare and its horrendous rollout and consequences.
Since the president is permanently out to lunch, I wonder who actually is in charge.
