What the president didn't know...

...and when he didn't know it.

It's kind of shocking, especially since he's been regularly touted by media boosters as "the smartest occupant of the Oval Office -- ever."

The following is a "fun" little list of things President Obama "wasn't aware of happening" -- until long after the fact:

  • "Obama 'Unaware on Investments"--headline, Albany (Ga.) Herald, March 8, 2007
  • "Obama 'Unaware of Illegal Aunt' "--headline, BBC website, Nov. 1, 2008
  • "Obama Unaware of Tea Party Protests"--headline,, April 15, 2009
  • "Obama Unaware of Backroom Deal, White House Says"--headline, Dallas Morning Newswebsite, June 4, 2010
  • "Blago Judge: Obama Unaware of Seat Exchange Bid"--headline, Associated Press, May 16, 2011
  • "Sebelius: Obama Unaware of ACA Website Glitches Before Launch"--headline,, Oct. 23, 2013
  • "Obama Reportedly Unaware NSA Spied on 35 World Leaders"--headline,, Oct. 28

  • And that's just the short list!
