Or “Do as I say, not as I do.” Take your pick.

Obama’s press secretary defends Obama’s ethics standards with:

Robert Gibbs told reporters Tuesday, “The bar that we set is the highest that any administration in the country has ever set.”

 The problem with setting high standards is you have to be able to meet them. Obama isn’t.

While not exactly disappointed with Daschle’s withdrawal it doesn’t detract much overall with the succeeding article. Can anyone name one person in Obama’s cabinet who hasn’t had an ethical problem of one kind or another?

It doesn’t matter whether you can or not. I just want you to remember one thing: You asked, no demanded, this.

    Given the problems the Obama nominees have faced–Tax Dodging, Lobbyist’s, and the such, It seems that Obama “Ethics” was not a “Well Planned” Venture. With this “Start” of a New Administration, one can only wonder if “What’s to come” will be any more–shall we say “Well thought out”–

    “The problem with setting high standards is you have to be able to meet them. ”

    The problem with setting high standards is simply they are harder to achieve and your critics will be waiting for every slip that you make in route to meeting those high standards…..Obama has been in office for less than 3 weeks……he has been given the worst economy since the great depression….2 wars and others brewing……borders that are being overrun……and a banking crisis caused by greed and corruption……now given the fact that he has been working to put together a cabinet faster than any other president that I know of in my lifetime there are bound to be some issues along the way…..and that’s all you detractors will see…… you have said of Bush “history will give him his just due” because we really haven’t seen the great things he has done it will take time……..well why don’t you give Obama some time also,,,,,by the way take a look at this video….we all need a little levity…..

    The revolution has been televised…….

    Bruce, if it pleases you to think so, go right ahead but in my opinion it’s pure bunk.

    Obama spent an inordinate amount of time criticizing Bush’s failed policies and has proceeded to rescind every one of Bush’s executive orders and all your guy does is talk. The reason that’s all he does is because that’s all he knows how to do.

    3 weeks or 3 years is not going to make a difference in his lack of judgment nor the fact that he has excepted himself and Congress from the standards he would impose on everyone else. If that’s your idea of a hero, fine, but it’s not mine.
