I saw it in the news, it must be true

You know how lately Obama says he’s been finding out all the bad news not from his advisors but from the news media instead? But after listening to Jay Carney drone on and on day after day I’m beginning to think maybe no one in this administration knows what’s going on. Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, AP reporter monitoring, calling James Rosen a flight risk, you name it and this administration says they heard about it in the news.

So it got me to thinking, and yes, I know this plan’s a long shot but given the “talent” in Obama’s inner circle it just might work. We get a couple of newspapers and a few local TV affiliates to run this story; “Obama resigned yesterday. Family packing today and will depart for their new home in the suburbs of Nairobi, Kenya tomorrow at 8:45am.” Then we email the links to the stories off to the Kenyan media who’ll run with it in a heartbeat causing their government to announce the biggest “Welcome Home” party in all of recorded history. James Clapper will see all this Kenyan activity through his own “prism” and in the daily intelligence briefing tell Obama he did in fact resign.

Anybody have any better of an idea?

      Dear NSA, I received an email from the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes this morning, I won! In my excitement I deleted the email in error and must respond to them by tonight. Can you please send me a copy? ×0

    • Just Google it!
      I guess I still don't know why the NSA needs Prism when Obama's got Eric Schmidt and Google.
