  • Obama was happy about it and I would wager it was his idea. He will say he is sad about the withdrawl. He has also said he is the man making decisions and that is one thing he has said I do believe.

  • It's a step in the RIGHT direction. I think it shows there were enough people (like many of us) who voiced our opinion and made enough noise that he had no other choice. His lack of following the RULES and LAWS in regards to IRS dealings tainted any experience he had. It sends a decent message of accountability, imo. Obama being sad?!? If he cared about accountability, he would have been the leader of CHANGE and picked a new nominee who hasn't commited the type of fraud that would put the "normal joe" behind bars.
