Double Standard

I find it hilarious that the media made such a big deal over Condi Rice and other Bush advisers not wanting to testify in front of congress on issues that were national security concerns and where Bush needed frank, honest, and direct advice without advisers looking over their shoulders the whole time. Remember the firestorm about them refusing to testify? It was a big 'ol constitutional battle.

Now, in the vein of expanding all of the worst traits of his predecessors, the Obama camp is using the same constitutional argument to prevent Desiree Rogers from testifying on how she totally F*ed up the White House state dinner for India with the party crashers. Because, you know, party invitations are an area where congressional oversight would leave the POTUS without effective and incisive opinion from advisers. Yeah... hilarious.
