The Obama administration needs to hire a damage control czar.
Why? Because if your administration is going to pressure someone out of their job because of public comments, realize you didn't have all the facts until after you've got egg on your face and then tell everyone that, you need someone better than Robert "the Democrats have a great chance at losing their majority in November" Gibbs to tackle this one.
Check out these lines pulled from the linked story:
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the administration did not know all the facts when it acted.
When asked Wednesday if he had spoken with President Barack Obama, Vilsack said simply, "No."
This is dumb. These people are in control of executive power in our federal government, and they're making mistakes like this. Something like this shouldn't have even made it to Obama's desk, much less the newspapers. But because the administration decided to stick its hand in a hot pot, it got burned.
And people still believe that this is a government capable of faking the moon landing.
