Obama: 'I'm Holding Every Cabinet Member Accountable'

Obama: 'I'm Holding Every Cabinet Member Accountable'


On Thursday night, MSNBC aired its sycophantic interview between Obama-worshipper Chris Matthews and President Obama. During that interview, Matthews asked President Obama about his governing style. After suggesting that his management style was not to blame for his administration’s problems, Obama then explained that he held his cabinet officers to a high standard: “I’m holding every cabinet member accountable.” He said, “I want to have strong interactions with them directly.”

Thus far, President Obama has never asked for the resignation of a single one of his cabinet officials, including Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who was responsible for the disastrous Obamacare rollout; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who presided over a complete lack of security in Benghazi; and Attorney General Eric Holder, who has presided over the targeting of journalists as well as the Fast and Furious scandal, among others.
