I don't really mind misdirection, lies, and non-answers where appropriate.
What really bothers me is that the Obama administration uses these tools so poorly and at the wrong times. The administration has struggled to generate competent and controlled narratives in all situations; which is remarkable considering how much the media is willing to cooperate with the administration and echo their message.
For example, I would have preferred the Admin to lie or deny concerning the cyberattacks on Iran and provide an incomplete but believable narrative on Osama's death. I would preferred that they just came up with a competent, truthful narrative for the Churchhill bust fiasco and Fast and Furious, but they botched both of those.
