Obama Flack: Hey, You Know Obama Can't Fire Shinseki, Because He Would Face Political Difficulties In Getting a New Secretary;
Even Chris Matthews Blasts Administration for Putting Politics First

The Obama Administration -- proceeding from Obama himself -- has long been so arrogant that they are overly honest about their cynical, self-interested calculations.

Obama did not see any problem when he declared that he was just a blank screen upon which people were invited to project their hopes, for example.

This gang's narcissism, arrogance, and brutal cynicism has long been the subtext of everything they say.

But frequently they're so egotistical that they straight-up announce the subtext as text.

Obviously Obama cares a great deal more about minor political hassles (My God, that could require some work) than about whether veterans are dying in a government queue.

We all know this.

But it's probably not a good idea for an Administration flack to announce, "Yeah, you know, Obama cares more about some minor political hassle (My God, that could require some work) than about whether veterans are dying in a government queue."

And yet this is what Bill Burton said:

“Just imagine, Jake, it’s not like Senate Republicans are going to let you put some new head of the V.A. in to deal with the problem. They are going to, you know, extract their pound of flesh and make it as difficult as possible for him,” he said.

My God, the opposition party is actually going to rightfully criticize the Administration's performance. Anything but that.

Chris Matthews is his usual restrained self in criticizing Sherrod Brown for joining Obama in his Just Don't Acknowledge the Corpses defense.

Even Jay Carney is obfuscating on whether Obama still stands behind Shinseki.

(Wait, did I just say that even Jay Carney is obfuscating? WTF?)

It would take a Miracle to help Obama out of this jam.

Gentlemen, I give you the F.B.I.

Or, I mean, John Boehner.
