This is beautiful. The first crack in the White House wall, this means someone has evidence that it goes all the way to Obama. Now they are blaming the WH counsel to stop the breach.

Zero's evasive answer yesterday, turning the subject from WH knowledge of the IRS activities to his personal knowledge of the IG report specifically, is *very* telling.

This is a set up for the Obama defense, "How dare she not tell the President about these dastardly goings on that he knew nothing about!"

Kathryn Rummler, meet bus-wheels.

I consider myself something of a political junkie (a requirement for being here to begin with) but until yesterday I had never heard of Ms. Ruemmler. She is clearly “bus material,” an expendable non-entity to throw to the wolves. None of these people are calling for Holder, Sebelius, that hideous DHS man-woman Napolitano, or any of the other chief suspects to resign.

There is absolutely no advantage for even the slightest hint that anyone at WH level knew about this. This is preemptive damage control.

Horse puckey.

She knew. And 0bama knew. I hope she does step down and then lets the whole world know exactly what 0bama knew and when he knew it. And for the cherry on top...I hope she says it was his idea.

I can dream can't I?

THANK YOU LANNY!!!!!

This is brilliant. Of course she told the President. He is setting her up to either fall on the sword, or confirm 0bama is a liar. Either way she loses.

If she is smart, she is not going to take the fall.

Obama started this whole thing There are more than just Obama in this administration who qualify as underhanded, lying, and vindictive narcissists (e.g. Valerie Jarrett, Clinton, Holder, Axle Rod, Emanuel, Reno, too name a few).

IMO, Zero is the dumbest and laziest of the lot.

True, but if they are unlucky this will turn into a self-perpetuating story, and for each "bus-sacrifice" the journalists (yes, even them!) and the voters wil be baying for the next one....

Benghazi is of course the real story, the one that spells treason, but politically I think the IRS is the one that's really dangerous. Dangerous not only for the sitting president and his adminstration, but for the whole political elite. Tax authorities are never popular.....

"Briskly" ...


Prediction: Joe Biden's "defcon-1" scandal will break soon ... and he'll be just like Spiro T. Agnew ...

Hillary would rather have GOP John Boehner as (temporary) VP for 2 years, and just "politically" get rid of Joe Biden once and for all ...


The political blood is in the water ...


Eventually ... Obama will be told ... "just put some ice on it ..."

Yep. Those are the only two options it appears are available to her. Resign in disgrace, or give us the truth that Obama knew!

About 10 years ago when I wised up that, at heart, Michael Medved was nothing more than a sniveling GOP party hack, I marveled at how similar he was to Lanny Davis. They even sound alike.

Later, I found out that they were best friends in college.

I don't know what that means. But it's creepy. Why would otherwise intelligent men throw away their dignity to regurgitate their party line?

So what happens if she does step down? She's been an inside player for a long time.

If she steps down, Obama has to find a new White House Council. What will happen once that new person finds out what's been going on? Will they want to remain, or might they have a moment of conscience and walk away, saying they want no part of it?
