Two know it alls, who say they know nothing

How can it be that two politicians claiming each to be knowledgeable of what is happening in world affairs when each claim not knowing what is going on in their own backyard. Clinton claims she knew nothing of her husband’s affairs over the years of their marriage and Hussein Obama claiming to never have heard nor know anything of the Reverend Wright’s twenty years of hate speeches of America and whites. It seems that they are either bald face lairs or are incredibly stupid, or could it be both.
