(Newser) – From the White House gossip mill: Three top Obama advisers will skip the wedding of ex-budget director Peter Orszag this weekend in a tiff over the Bush tax cuts, the New York Post reports in its Page Six column. As the tale goes, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Rahm Emanuel abruptly canceled after Orszag wrote an op-ed about keeping all the cuts in place for the time being. "Basically they want to show a unified front, that they are not hanging out with the enemy," says an administration source. Politico says it's not quite the case.

Orszag is a major dwweb, but this is the strongest position I can recall the O-bots taking in the last 20 months. And that is just sad.

I think this couple will have a beautiful wedding without those that don't want to attend.
