    Subtitle for this OpEd:

    The bureaucrats at the Internal Revenue Service did exactly what the president said was the right and honorable thing to do.



    She is exactly right the President set the tone for this sort of abuse.

    Now Clinton flack, Lanny Davis asks about what the WH knew and when the WH knew it:





    Coming from Mr Davis in this forum (TheHill.com website) that means the Clinton's are going after Obama, this article is in retaliation for the emails released this week by the WH that show Hillary changing the Benghazi talking points, to cover her failure to provide security and the fact that she KNEW it was a terrorist attack.

    This warfare between the Clintons and Obama will be a good show. Time to pass the popcorn. Since they are both guilty and hopefully will destroy each other.

    You could have just titled this "wishful thinking from conservatives and hacks."

    What this Obama organization does is break the law and take the hit because nobody will do anything about it anyway.
    The end justifies the means,constitution or the law be damned.

    15000 new IRS agents for Obamascare...where do you think those hires will come from Bob Jones U? Baylor? SMU? BYU?
    No. They'll be hand picked Che T-Shirt wearing air heads from Berckley, NYU, Chi. U. and Bill Ayers Pressue Cooker School. True blue america hating socialist.

    Strassel has a history of misrepresenting things in the past, which reflected her partisan point of view..

    An editorial is an opinion, and often based on what she heard..

    Thankfully, we don't members foolish enough to attempt to police this board as if they're on a higher moral ground.

    This is very easy to trace and I don't think it can be because David Axelrod is not a government employee. Bush's henchman was Rove ... Obama is Axelrod. If they want to correct this behavior these non government employees need to be subpoenaed in the future. Until that happens these investigations will either lead nowhere or take a few years to investigate.

    It's like the mafia with the Consigliere ...

    So new rules then, if there is a different angle on the same topic it is ok to start a new thread.. after all this is the 6th one on the IRS.. this under the heading of a right wing hack criticizes Obama.. so what else is new.

    People should start understanding what kind of awful leadership they have.

    I think this is funny that anti-tax con groups were having to endure a bit of extra scrutiny. They earn it with each passing day, running their mouths about tax burdens and endlessly looking for loopholes that aren't even designed for them. I've lost even more respect for Obama for not telling the GOP to go ***k themselves, once and for all.

    These Tea Party asshats are perpetually looking to defraud existing tax guidelines and constantly vowing to avoid taxes they disagree with. If your group professed to soon blow stuff up, they'd be added to some terror watch list. I don't see how this is much different in principle.

    Meanwhile, cons will fight tooth and nail to keep corporations like ExxonMobil from paying tax, and to keep that undisclosed corporate campaign money funneling right through via Citizen's United. There's the REAL tax scandal.

    What we can learn from cons like 13 is that comprehensive surveillance on every aspect of your digital lives for the sake of terror paranoia is "good government at work." However, being under the microscope by the tax collector when your entire group's platform is undermining the tax code? "ZOMG! What a horrific miscarriage of federal justice!!!!"

    I am a bit on scandal overload at the moment .... I will sit this one out and let the legal system or Congress or whomever handle this mess. Maybe this will help usher in the flat tax tiers . :popcorn:
