Carney: I.R.S. Run By Bush Political Appointee (Blaming Bush for this?!)
The Weekly Standard Blog ^ | May 10, 2013 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 05/10/2013 1:02:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

White House spokesman Jay Carney said, in response to a question about the I.R.S. targeting conservative groups, that the I.R.S. is run by a George W. Bush political appointee:

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

"I.R.S. is an independent enforcement agency," said Carney. "The -- which I believe, as I understand it, contains only two political appointees within it. The individual who is running the I.R.S. at the time was actually an appointee from the previous administration."

The previous administration was George W. Bush's administration.

Yeah, it’s Bush’s fault that the IRS is targeting a Constitutional government advocacy group.

He’s suggesting the IRS does such things in a political vacuum? Not even Baghdad Bob was stupid enough to think anyone would buy that.

I had to quit watching this piece of shi!. I have never heard spin so damn rotten by a mouth that knows only to lie. I'm totally done with the entire Democratic crap. Boy, am I mad? You damn well I am. If the MSM don't wake up they will be living under a dictatorship and their ass will never see freedom again.

Fine. What’s the political persuasion of the individual who actually made the decision?

I don’t know how Carney sleeps at night.

I would love to see any member of the press ask Carney what he wants to be when he grows up.

Hey Jay. Blaming the “last guy”is getting a little old. In case you missed it we had an election. Team Obama is “the last guy”.

Except that Douglas Shulman.....is a DEMOCRAT

Name: Shulman, Douglas Current Position: Previous Commissioner Douglas Shulman earned a B.A. from Williams College in Massachusetts, an M.P.A. from the John F. Kennedy School of Government (Harvard University) and a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. He began his career at the consulting firm of A.T. Kearney. From 1996 to 1997, he was Senior Policy Advisor and then Chief of Staff of the bipartisan National Commission on Restructuring the IRS. From 1998 to 2000, Shulman was Vice President of Darby Investments, Ltd., a holding company, where he managed financial and legal aspects of the company’s transactions. In January 2000, Shulman founded his own consulting firm, FoundryOne, Inc., which specialized in technology-focused new business ventures. That same year, he joined the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), where he became president of markets, services and information, and a member of the office of the chairman two years later. He served as NASD vice chairman before its 2007 consolidation, after which he served in the same position for the newly formed Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the private-sector regulator of all securities firms doing business in the United States. He became the 47th Commissioner of Internal Revenue on March 24, 2008.

Shulman donated $500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2004.

Or...

When you were a kid, did you think you’d grow up to be the guy that lies for a corrupt president?

To tell you the truth, the Bushes aren't really big fans of the Tea Party Movement.

Technically, Carney's right...but he's still full of fecal matter.

Ssssooooo... no ones going to investigate further then....? What’s Carneys point?

Seems to me the WH would pursue an investigation with great vigor if they could put it on Bush.

He’s nothing like a grown-up. But today he’s making Josef Goebbels look like Edward R. Murrow.

IRS does not report to WH executive branch? Obama & Co let it run loose?

This is so ridiculous that words failed me (almost). Carney Clown does not belong to his current position.

[...was actually an appointee from THE previous administration.]

The previous administration was Obama’s, if he had said A previous administration, he could have meant Bush BUT he would STILL be lying.

If you start a new job, and there’s a steaming bag of stink on your new desk, you can blame it on the prior occupant.
If it’s still there 4+ years later, and there’s another like it next to it, it’s your fault.
