'A few low-level employees' my ass

The White House official who exchanged confidential taxpayer information with the IRS is a longtime Obama advisor and progressive activist who is currently the most powerful official on Obamacare implementation within the White House.

Jeanne Lambrew, deputy assistant to the president for health policy, entered Obama-world in 2008 as a health-policy adviser to then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign. She was subsequently named deputy director and then director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) now-defunct Office of Health Reform, where she reported directly to Kathleen Sebelius.
Lambrew exchanged confidential taxpayer information on organizations with IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram and White House health policy advisor Ellen Montz, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and provided to The Daily Caller last week. Ingram attempted to counsel Lambrew and the White House on a lawsuit from religious organizations opposing Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

Translation: "You people came in here and pissed off the locals, and we lost two senators!  Stay out of it this time!"

Well then, Mrs. Obama, get off your ass and start weeding and harvesting.

So, you order a fire academy to take a bunch of people who couldn't make it before, and you're surprised to have a higher-than-usual number of injuries and "I'm done" people?  Really?

According to the White House food blog, the garden is normally tended by National Park Service employees. Maybe the NPS could pull a couple of their thugs off of WWII barricade duty, walk them across the street and pull weeds and pick produce. Not that I'm particularly enamored of the first lady's vanity project, but as long as I've already been forced to pay for the plants I'd rather not have the produce go to waste.
