Remember that press conference when President Bush couldn’t think of a single mistake he had made? There’s a new sheriff in town.
‘I screwed up,’ President Barack Obama told NBC’s Brian Williams Tuesday in the wake of his nominee to be secretary of health and human services, Tom Daschle, withdrawing his name from consideration.
Daschle dropped out after acknowledging that he had belatedly paid more than $128,000 in taxes owed to the federal government.
‘Today was an embarrassment for us,’ Obama said. He said he was ‘angry,’ ‘disappointed’ and ‘frustrated with myself’ over the Daschle episode.
