His resignation would add to the controversy. I've been pondering what must be an intricate network of leverage between the politicians and bureaucrats involved. At some point, Obama is going to have to sacrifice some lambs on this and several other scandals ongoing. Hillary? Carney? Gen Patreus?
Here's the thing. The scapegoats will either:
1. Have to be complicit in the rouge to play the fall guy/girl in hopes of future accolades, power, prestige and/or wealth.
2. Be powerless to stop it.
I would expect that many of the folks closest to the President "know things" that balance any leverage. Hillary would not allow herself to be the scapegoat and would turn on Obama as America's Patriot. It could actually help her if she takes down Obama. But you have to wonder, what must Obama have over so many of these other people that they won't protect their own careers/lives/reputation? Patreus had an affair and was booted.
I suspect the pressure is not high enough yet. Once the press starts going after the President on these things. He'll start assigning blame. Then the truth should start coming out.
With democrats the pressure doesn't usually get high enough because the media controls the narrative (Sandy Burglar for Bill Clinton?). Then Republicans become cowards.
I would like to see a special investigation committee assembled in the house with the most aggressive young Tea Party advocates.
Valerie Jarrett’s name hasn’t been mentioned by any one, about any of this, by anyone in the press.
So creepy thinking maybe she’s the real President here.
