(Washington) President Barack Obama said today it's not his fault.
In a brief announcement from the Rose Garden, the Chief Executive stated that Americans should stop looking at him when something that looks really bad happens.
"I am not responsible for that" said the president. "Not only did I not do it, I didn't even know about it at the time."
Obama: "I'm saddened by the attitudes of Americans today, and I hope that all this finger pointing will change" (PUI)
The president made his brief announcement shortly after what some critics have called "just the latest scandal so far this morning" involving amateurish missteps by the White House became known.
"It's tiresome" said Obama. "I'm a very busy man, but has anyone questioned why Bush Administration people have done nothing to ease this latest crisis? Sadly, everyone is trying to lay the blame at my feet, and it's not fair. I simply won't stand for it" said the president.
Mr. Obama refused to take any questions and quipped "you'll probably blame me for that, too!"
"You're barking up the wrong tree, buddy!" said Obama (PUI)
One reporter shouted a question to the president as he was walking back toward the Oval Office, and Obama turned with a smile and said "Ha! Thought you had me on that one, but you're barking up the wrong tree, buddy!"
There were no further details available at press time.
