Your take is your INTERPRETATION of the video.

And it's wrong!

As I stated earlier ... it is not necessary for Obama to know EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING.

He does NOT need to know the names of every single department in government.

That is NOT the job of the president.

Unless Obama needs to DEAL DIRECTLY with a department ... there is NO REASON for him to know all of their names!

Anything else would be MICRO-MANAGING!!

Obama ASKS QUESTIONS whenever he wants to know something he doesn't already know, which is EXACTLY what took place in the video.

THAT is a sign of an INTELLIGENT MAN !!!

There is nothing to interpret. It is there on the video, clear as a sunny day. All you must do is listen.

Now this, this is an opinion and speculation.

See the difference?

Nope .... your take on the video ... is your interpretation. Nothing more.

Obama does not need to know the name of every dept in government.

Only the ones he directly deals with.

And it is quiet apparent that he does not deal DIRECTLY with the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence department, although their information probably gets passed UP THE FOOD CHAIN to OTHER DEPARTMENTS that Obama does directly deal with.

Sorry ..... no soup for you !!!

No interpretation is needed. A guy in a burger joint had to tell the POTUS what one of his most critical defense intelligence depts does. Pathetic. And what is on the tape.

Yes and as President-elect he didn't know the name of the Prime Minister of the biggest democracy in the world.

A guy on a tape told Obama what an OBSCURE government department name meant. BIG DEAL !!!

The only thing truly pathetic is how you waste so much time looking for ways to trash our new President!

How "patriotic" of you !!!

There is nothing obscure about defense intelligence. He told him what they did, because the clueless moron didn't know.
