Passing the buck

Apparently it’s not as easy as Barack Obama thinks to get answers from the government.

As someone who’s worked for the government in the past I can tell you this: the person who answers the phone has no idea what the answer to your question is. Regardless of what the question is. And even if they do know what the answer is they’re probably instructed not to answer questions. But of course Barack Obama’s answer to any question is “the government has the answer.” Instructive.
