Accountability, Obama Style


Accountability? You mean who Obama will blame next?
Check it out:

“The government generally has to conduct itself in a way that is true to the public trust,” President Obama said from the East Room of the White House Wednesday. “That’s especially true for the IRS.

“So, here’s what we’re going to do,” Obama continued. “First, we’re going to hold the responsible parties accountable.”

Obama then announced that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had asked for, and received, the resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller. What Obama failed to mention is that Miller was not in charge of the IRS when the targeting of Obama’s political enemies actually occurred. Nor did Obama mention that under existing federal law Miller was scheduled to leave his post in just three weeks any way.
