Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Parsing Words ‘In Way That Makes Clinton Look Unsophisticated’

by NRO Staff

The president’s response to the question of whether he or anybody in the White House knew about the IRS’s targeting of conservatives before last Friday, according to Charles Krauthammer, had him “parsing words in a way that makes President Clinton look unsophisticated.” 

Asked earlier today about the extend of his knowledge, the president indicated that he learned of the inspector general’s report last Friday along with the rest of the American public, but conspiculously declined to answer whether anybody else in the White House had knowledge of the situation. “The president’s answer to that question, it wasn’t Nixonian, it was Clintonian,” Krauthammer said.
