With What?

President Barack Obama says it's time for the embattled 80-year-old former Ways and Means Chairman to end his career "with dignity."

This classic congressional con artist has been charged with 13 ethics violations. It's not just 13 instances, but hundreds of instances lumped into 13 categories.

If Obama thinks that resigning under a cloud like this is ending a career "with dignity", what must his standards of ethics be?

My vote says he has none. But you already knew that.

Situational ethics and secular humanism in general, allow for no solid standards or ethics; such are blasted as "narrow-minded/bigoted/homophobic/mean-spirited/place cop-out du jour here".
What you are observing is typical, political arrogant condescension, laced with generous amounts of CYOA:
The Kenyan Communist doesn't want to look bad, doesn't want da brotha from Illinois to look bad, so this is a last-ditch face*ahem*saving effort fielded in the hopes it'll be taken by his fellow Red.
