Obama's reasoning could be used against him

It seems that what is good for the goose is not good for the gander as far as President Barack Obama is concerned.

In the Syrian mess, the administration has blamed President Bashar Assad for the gassing even though there is no evidence linking him to this atrocity. The administration's reasoning is Assad is the commander and chief of that country.

Now let's take a look at our country's commander-in-chief, who denies any knowledge or participation in some events.

The IRS scandal, the deaths in Benghazi, the spying on James Rosen and the gun selling sting, to mention a few.

Now shouldn't this reasoning in blaming Assad also be reason enough to blame Obama for these events in our country?

After all, he is the commander-in-chief of our country.

Reminds me of a parent telling an errant child, "Do as I say, not as I do."
