Lots of blame being hosed around

Now that people have finally decided to take the Presidential lie problem seriously (why this lie, as opposed to the other ones, is anyone’s guess), it’s interesting to watch the articles pop up blaming just about everyone else in the administration: from the administration’s scapegoat, the director of the CIA, to Dick Cheney, to Rumsfeld’s Office of Special Plans (Salon link, day pass required; story also here).

Folks, unless you’re claiming that this President is like Ronald Reagan and can’t expect to be held accountable for the decisions he signed up for, and the things he said, and the actions of the people that worked for him, the blame can only accrue to one person.
