Aloof, shifty Obama: Nixon times ten thousand!
According to Jay Carney, everyone in the White House knew about the big IRS scandal for a few weeks before it went public. Everyone except the president, because this whole month has been a season-long plot arc on HBO's Veep. (Speaking of, where's Joe Biden been lately?) Everyone was afraid to tell their boss about this dumb thing the IRS did, and then he learned about it on the news, and now he is probably super pissed.
Clearly Obama is a horrible boss and the White House is a toxic work environment, probably, where people are afraid to report bad news to their superiors. Just like Nixon, time ten thousand.
