Right. Because presidents are expected to know everything that goes on by any agency in the gov't.

I didn't say "everything" but there are now 3 MAJOR things that he's playing dumb on (or maybe not playing according to you). I said if any high level official hasn't been fired yet, there is a cover up. If there isn't a cover up then he's ineffective as a commander in chief. Do you not agree he should know some of what's going on? Doesn't the AG report directly to Obama? If he's not telling Obama about potential blow back from this broad phone record sweep, he should be fired. If the head of the IRS is not briefing Obama about the IG report going to be released this week and that members of the IRS were going to go on record as early as Friday of last week then you are kidding yourself.
These people fight a political fight every single day. If something is going to hurt his political capital when dealing with gun laws, immigration, his health care law, etc. He knows it right away and they start deflecting before it ever gets reported.
