  •  Yes, it is the administration's fault. Absolutely (7+ / 0-)

    Every administration is responsible for pursuing their policies. They are the executive branch.  If orders come down from above, people are supposed to follow them. If people don't follow orders, there are procedures to follow to either discipline or dismiss them.  

    If the administration - the executive branch - does not actually pursue the policies announced in the President's speeches, then it IS the administration's fault.

    What a Police State Looks Like: "On one side: soft human flesh, unprotected human skulls, cardboard signs, slogans they chant, armed with belief in 1st Amendment rights. On the other: helmets, body armor, guns, batons, chemical weapons." -- JanetRhodes

      . . . levels down in hierarchy as a national, political or human rights issue.

      The "it's my aides" or "it wasn't important enough to follow up with to see if it was working" is something that I hope and doubt I'll see Obama say.  He can make up better wishy wimpy excuses than that.

      the fact that you're right is nothing more than interesting
