We've reached a point in our society where our political leaders have only to claim ignorance about moral or even legal lapses within their administrations. Leadership requires setting the standards for what happens within administrations and being accountable for lapses. We don't even let our kids get away with that childish defense. The worst part is that we the public not only let them get away with it, we continue to support them.
We get the government and society we're willing to tolerate.
