It's possible President Barack Obama was unaware of something here or there, but Fox News' Brit Hume finds it hard to believe he was out of the loop on practically every policy issue that has gone wrong recently.

The White House has said Obama was unaware of the National Security Agency's listening to phone calls from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and up to 34 other world leaders. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told CNN's Sanjay Gupta last week that Obama was unaware of the problems with HealthCare.gov before it launched Oct. 1.

Obama is presented as intelligent and curious, Hume said Monday during a commentary on Fox News Channel's "Special Report." But the denials of knowledge make him seem disengaged and leaving the running of everything to others.

"In which case it's imperative that you pick good 'others,'" Hume told host Bret Baier.

Hume focused on Obama's promise when pushing the Affordable Care Act that people who liked their insurance plans could keep them. That was later amended to say the government wouldn't force people to change their plans.

"But that's not true either," Hume said, because the law made many of those plans illegal.

Obamacare "architect" Zeke Emanuel and others argue that such plans were a ripoff and people should get better ones, Hume said, "but better in whose opinion? Why, the government's, of course."

The very design of Obamacare made Obama's promise impossible to keep," he said. "Maybe the president knew this. Maybe he didn't. Maybe he simply didn't care."
