Why Does Barack Obama Get A Pass On Bradley Manning, Liberals?

“President Present” has raised non-leadership to an artform, which is a rather noteworthy accomplishment for a man who’s considered the leader of the Free World. Just to give you one of many, many examples, let’s consider the Bradley Manning case.

Liberals are INFURIATED by what they view as tough treatment of the poor little traitor who deserves a hanging. However, who’s “mistreating” Manning? That would be the military. So, who’s in charge of the military? That would be the Commander-In-Chief, otherwise known as Barack Hussein Obama. Yet, we’re still getting articles like this one from the Politico,

The State spokesman’s predicament may have worsened further Friday afternoon, when ABC’s Jake Tapper asked Obama during a White House press conference whether he agreed with Crowley.

“With respect to Private Manning, I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards. They assure me that they are,” Obama said. “I can’t go into details about some of their concerns, but some of this has to do with Private Manning’s safety as well.”

When Tapper pressed the president further, Obama replied tersely, “I think I gave you an answer to the substantive issue.”

Obama never said explicitly whether he agreed with the military’s handling of Manning. White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to elaborate on the president’s remarks.

Wait…we don’t know whether Obama “explicitly” agrees “with the military’s handling of Manning?” Well, pretty clearly he does because if he didn’t, he could change it at any time with a single phone call. So, if you have a problem with how Bradley Manning is being treated, then you have a problem with Barack Obama, who’s the one authorizing it. Can we at least admit that? Can we at least admit that Barack Obama is responsible for things that happen in his administration where he personally has the final say-so?
