The Internal Revenue Service under the Obama administration described by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., as the most feared government agency admitted Friday it targeted conservative and tea-party groups during last years election because of their politics.
Bachmann, a former tax attorney, told WND in an interview the IRS admission means the credibility of the 2012 election is in doubt.
Americans, she said, should be wondering whether Obamacare, which is to be enforced by the IRS, will target conservative voices opposed to President Obama with delays or denials of medical care.
But why would an administration ever confess to such a flagrant misuse of politics and power?
Bachmann, who chairs the House Tea Party caucus, said its the Benghazi scandal.
Theres no doubt this was not a coincidence that they dumped this story today, a Friday dump day, Bachmann told WND. This is when they put their negative stories out.
But she said the looming storm cloud called Benghazi is the soft underbelly of the Obama administration and likely will keep Hillary Clinton from fulfilling her dream of occupying the Oval Office.

Full title: Why Obama released embarrassing IRS bombshell Michele Bachmann explains White House's willingness to take heat
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
In other words, we’ll let you have the IRS if you stop talking about Benghazi, right?
He see using the full brunt of the government to crush opposition as a positive.
It's the Chicago way!
This is a victory for Freedom only if someone in the Obama administration pays a price for this assault on Constitutional Freedoms.
I very much doubt that there will be any accountability for these actions by the administration. If there is it will be a low level administration thrown under the bus to save the true instigators at the top.
Had the same thoughts about the Obamabots. They are not too bright.
Obama is just the speech reader ,nothing else
I offer another view - Obama knows this is as "bad" as Benghazi. However the IRS caper does not involve his heir apparent, Hitlery. Das party must protect her.
He has his second election behind him and is well along the way to "re-shaping" the country. So he is taking one for the team
That will also push Bubba out of party patron leadership as we all forgive in a year or two.
Actually the IRS admission is much more important to Americans because it affects hundreds of thousands of us directly.
Instead of wagging the dog, Obama is now wagging the bus.
Sorry, I gotta disagree. Friday is when the regime releases it's most embarrassing stories so that by Monday morning Jay Carney can claim, "That happened a long time ago... next item."
The regime gladly releases negative stories 24/7.
It strikes me as very odd, this damning admission of using the IRS in such a blatantly political way...in run-up to a Presidential election.
I am still confused. It's hard for me to believe that they thought this would slow down the Benghazi inquiry.
Is there something else here?
“In other words, well let you have the IRS if you stop talking about Benghazi, right?”
BINGO. The MSM are the masters at sleight of hand tactics: the right hand has benghazi, left hand has the IRS.
In the real world all of these allegations would pile up and force the removal of the instigators.
In he Bizarro world of Obama and the Media he uses one to escape the other. Throw crap out there and keep it ricocheting around in order to keep one thing from building into a crisis.
It seems nothing is enough to bring this crazed Administration down.
We have people dead-—No problem
Health care destroyed-—No Problem
Guns supplied to Mexican cartels—No problem
Egypt sold out to Muslim Brotherhood—No Problem
Bankruptcy-—No Problem, just print more money.
“..likely will keep Hillary Clinton from fulfilling her dream of occupying the Oval Office.”
From Michelles’ lips to God’s ears. I happen to think Satan is controlling this situation and we, without God’s intervention, will be unlikely to stop hildabeast .
The hits, they keep on comin’!
There will be more. Leaks in the dike (or dyke if these involve Big Sis.) are now flowing.
In the end, this isn't merely about the current occupant of the White House. It is about the inevitability of the use of totalitarian power by a government unchecked either by Congressional oversight, or media watchdogs.
