Winner, winner, chicken dinner! President Obama did indeed announce that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller would be spending more time with his family, at the request of Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.
And … that’s it. The president’s appearance was essentially the live version of his brief statement issued last night, though he did add that he’s angry. This wasn’t the angry-angry Obama we saw in the Rose Garden following the Senate’s gun control vote, though.
Reporters were welcomed to ask questions to the cloud of dust left as the president quickly disappeared from the stage.
We hope the press remembers to ask questions tomorrow. We’ll save some here for safe-keeping.
