Obama 2011: Jobs the ‘last thing I think about when I go to bed’; Obama 2013: Terrorism the ‘last thing I think about when I go to bed’

So which is it? We distinctly remember his uttering this nonsense repeatedly over the years.

“I know there’s a lot going on in the world, and the news is filled with images of the Middle East and Japan,” Obama said during an appearance at UPS. “But you should know that keeping the economy growing and making sure jobs are available is the first thing I think about when I wake up every morning. It’s the last thing I think about when I go to bed each night.”

Really? This from Tuesday night with Jay Leno.

He argued that government surveillance – the subject of Snowden’s disclosures – is a “critical component to counter-terrorism,” even though he knows the practice has “raised a lot of questions for people.”

“The first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about when I go to bed is making sure that I’m doing everything I can to keep Americans safe,” Obama said.

Let’s be honest, we all know what the first and last things he thinks of each day is.

We wonder what he was thinking the night of September 11, 2012 and the next morning. Other than his Vegas fundraiser, that is.

    Both statements may be true, though incomplete.

    He could be thinking about hiring like-minded people to the IRS, perhaps as liaison to the nsa.
