Obama: President 'Can't Be Reckless' - FBI Dir.: Clinton Was 'Extremely Careless'


Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless,” FBI Dir. James Comey concluded Tuesday morning – and later that day Pres. Obama declared that a U.S. president “can’t be reckless.”

In his comments regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server, Dir. Comey characterized the presumptive Democrat candidate’s handling of classified information as “extremely careless”:

“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

That afternoon, when Pres. Obama spoke at a “Hillary for America” campaign event in North Carolina, he warned that a U.S. president “can’t be reckless”:

“And being President of the United States means you’ve have to deal with reality. When a crisis hits, you can’t just walk off the set.  (Laughter.)  You can't fire the scriptwriter.  (Laughter.)  You can't be reckless.

So, ironically, Obama appears to have inadvertently disqualified Clinton while simultaneously promoting her candidacy since, according to Thesaurus.com, “careless” and “reckless” are synonyms.
