When we said nobody knew about the IRS scandal until recently, we meant everybody knew a month ago

My, my, it's getting hard to keep track of all these lies.  Politico: "The White House's shifting IRS account"
The White House on Monday once again added to the list of people who knew about the IRS investigation into its targeting of conservative groups — saying White House chief of staff Denis McDonough had been informed about a month ago.
Press secretary Jay Carney said again that no one had told President Barack Obama ahead of the first news reports: not his top aide McDonough, nor his chief counsel Kathy Ruemmler, nor anyone from the Treasury Department.
Monday’s revelation amounts to the fifth iteration of the Obama administration’s account of events, after initially saying that the White House had first learned of the controversy from the press.
So, to believe that Obama didn't know about this brewing embarrassment to his Administration, you have to believe that neither the White House counsel, nor the Treasury Secretary, nor the White House Chief of Staff - either collectively or individually - decided to tell the President.

That is a bridge too far, sir.

As Allahpundit quips on Hot Air: "So, when’s McDonough getting fired?"

Extra - From Twitchy, it sounds like the WH Press Corps wasn't buying it either.
