Scandals Grow In The Most Transparent Administration Ever

It's been quite a bruising week for Wonderboy's minions and, by extension, the First Rookie himself.

Attorney General Eric Holder is under pressure because his sworn testimony that he only learned about the illegal administration-operated ATF gun-running operation, Fast and Furious, a few weeks before his testimony this summer, has been proven to be a lie. Instead, a House committee has discovered memos to Holder dating from last year showing him to have been notified of the operation.

Meanwhile, the head of the Energy Department unit responsible for the Solyndra loan has resigned. Recent communications uncovered by the House have shown that two high-ranking members of Wonderboy's financial team, Larry Summers and Tim Geithner, warned him against the Solyndra deal. Now the House is subpoenaing documents dating to Wonderboy's swearing-in day. Apparently there is suspicion that the loan was a pre-arranged deal for bundler Kaiser.

Both scandals are growing even as the countdown to next year's election proceeds.

Wonderboy's press conference remarks on these two matters are beginning to remind me of Nixon's latter years when Watergate was moving closer to his office.
