Second, it's pathetic because these weren't surprise discoveries. It's been reported many times now that the Obama people knew about these tax problems in the course of vetting the candidates. They just figured that they could push them through regardless because people would be too stupid to notice or care. He has repeatedly claimed to bring change and transparency to washington but we see once more that it's a case of do as I say and not as I do. It's just like his rules for lobbying and lobbiests. He's set new rules restricting their access to his administration but has broken them and made exceptions for his own staff. It's just rank hypocrisy.
I don't think it's enough to give him his first strike, but it's definitely disappointing.
