Ann always leaves the best for last

Via Ann Althouse, who has a lot of criticism for the President's answer to a question about DADT. What really caught my attention was a comment at the end of the post, though, where se quotes a comment made during the Q&A session:
"But I do have an obligation..."
Oh? And what, pray tell, Mr. President, is that obligation?
"... to make sure that I’m following some of the rules."
Note that.

Not "... to make sure that I'm following the rules." Apparently, there are rules that you don't have to follow. Well, no - I'm sure that you and I will have to follow them. Not following all of the rules is just something that the special people apparently get to do.
