Screw up, move up, no consequences for the Screwer-Upper-In-Chief.

President Barack Obama is taking responsibility for mistakes in the handling of the tax controversy that led to Tom Daschle’s withdrawal as President Barack Obama’s nominee to be health and human services secretary, saying: “I screwed up.”
The president did a series of back-to-back television interviews in which the subject of failed nominees was a top subject.
Obama told NBC “I’m frustrated with myself” for unintentionally sending a message that there are “two sets of rules” for paying taxes, “one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks.”
“I take responsibility for this mistake,” he told Fox News.
Yes, it’s a little late to be worrying about sending a message about “two sets of rules.”
