Yoo-hoo! Anyone in legacy media wondering why President Obama is on his third White House counsel in two-and-a-half years?

Isn't this the kind of story 60 Minutes used to investigate? I mean, before it became the public relations arm for the Democrat National Committee?

President Obama has named a new top White House lawyer, the third of his two-and-a-half-year tenure.

New White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler will replace Bob Bauer, who is returning to private practice -- including service as general counsel to the president's 2012 re-election campaign and as Obama's personal lawyer.

...Ruemmler is already working at the White House as principal deputy counsel to the president. She officially becomes White House counsel at the end of June.

...Washington attorney Greg Craig served as Obama's first White House counsel, but resigned after a year amid controversy over failed efforts to close the terrorism prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

What is going on in the Obama White House that has counsel playing musical chairs?

Though it does look like Ruemmler's released her college transcripts. So she's got that going for her.

Perhaps Captain wtf is just a nightmare to work for, as petty thin skinned narcissists usually are.

The person being replaced left to work for Obama's 2012 campaign.
