If this is an alcohol problem the question will be whether there have been previous problems and was the White House aware of any of these.

His "medical concerns" started when somebody 'splained to him how it looked bad for the administration...

Aren’t Cabinet secretaries always accompanied by armed federal agents? Why didn’t the agent take over driving?

Cabinet secs only get SS if they are specifically granted by POTUS.

From a related article:

“Officials said Bryson was not on government business, was driving a personal car and did not have a security detail at the time.”

Since when does a Commerce secretary require a security detail?

LOL

Under the Baraqqi regime, no amount of government (and government employees) is too much.

They had to concoct a story, making sure that everybody would stick to the same lie to avoid a scandal in the most transparent administration in history of the United States.

Never occurred to me that Bryson might be a witness in Fast and Furious hearings.

And thus the explanation for the accidents: Render unto seizure.

Obviously he is a “bath salts” abuser, and it is only a matter of time before he becomes a full zombie. There being so little of his food in the administration, he has to go in search of more brainy comestibles.

The horror of it all! That this LIB moron wasn’t driving a Govt Motors VOLT (aka: DOLT) is an affront to us all (he was driving an AUDI). Also, ther negative impact on the environment by driving an Audi is beyond disgusting.
