Too vast for the President to know everything that is going on inside it, that is. From The Corner:

The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC. “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast,” he explained.

The link is worth following, if only because Axelrod gets hammered by Joe Scarborough for the backhoe-sized load of garbage he is dealing out.

Apparently, though, this is the excuse for corruption – government is too big to keep track of.

Which is entirely the point the Tea Party has been making for over four years: the federal government is just too big. It’s past time to shrink it back down to a manageable, constitutional size.
