If there is one thing that defines Obama’s presidency it is the fait accompli. The White House denies, denies, denies, and then when it’s obvious that the White House engaged in some sort of nefarious behavior the president just looks at the critics and says, “Do something about it now.”
Just get Obamacare over the finish line. (You can keep your doctor. It’ll save the average family money.) Just start the amnesty program without Congress’s approval. Pretend that the war in Libya wasn’t illegal. What are you going to do about it? Seriously what, are YOU, going to do about it? It’s the politics of those who only care about the ends, and couldn’t give a darn about the means.
Integrity? That’s for suckers. This is politics we’re talking about.

Ten days after the story broke, White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri emailed State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki to ask, “between us on the shows…think we can get this done so he is not asked about email.” That apparently referred to Mr. Kerry, who appeared in an interview on CBS ’s “Face the Nation” three days later.
“Agree completely and working to crush on my end,” wrote back Ms. Psaki.
A day later, Ms. Psaki added, “Good to go on killing CBS idea.” She continued, “And we are going to hold on any other TV options just given the swirl of crap out there.” Mr. Kerry wasn’t asked on CBS about the email server, though it isn’t clear how Ms. Psaki could have guaranteed that.
Teased by Ms. Palmieri about her use of the phrase “swirl of crap,” Ms. Psaki wrote back: “Ha I mean—the challenging stories out there.”
