Fall Guy: Obama Advisers Begin Claiming that White House Counsel Not Only Screwed the Pooch on the IRS Scandal, But Also Singlehandledly Blocked an Honest Benghazi Report, Too

The wheels of the bus go 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round...

Two scandals, one scapegoat.

It’s not Obama’s fault, the administration wants you to know. BuzzFeed dutifully reports that the CIA and Obama’s national security team were all about transparency, transparency, transparency. But then along came the White House Counsel’s office, headed up by “Kathryn Ruemmler, Kathryn Ruemmler, Kathryn Ruemmler.”

“It was aggravating,” one administration official said. “It comes back to Kathryn Ruemmler, Kathyrn Ruemmler, Kathryn Ruemmler. I hate to say it, as it sounds like piling on, but it’s on her doorstep too.”

Iowahawk's a little sketpical:

Right. It definitely wasn't Hillary Clinton protecting Hillary Clinton's image and electability; it was this hitherto-unknown lawyer who broke all the laws to protect Hillary Clinton.

Damn these mid-level employees! Always screwing things up for the higher-ups by their dogged determination to protect the higher-ups.

By the way, Victoria Nuland, the woman who actually wrote all those emails demanding the talking points be retracted, is not being named as a problem. She's apparently still an Outstanding Civil Servant.

Read Twitchy, by the way, for a good War on Women joke that I won't steal.
