Skip to comments.Collins: Why hasnít Obama spoken up about the IRS scandal?
Posted on 05/13/2013 7:20:42 AM PDT by chessplayer
Susan Collins appeared on CNNs State of the Union yesterday to address the exploding scandal at the IRS, as many of the other Sunday talk shows focused more on the exploding scandal of Benghazi. Candy Crowley asked Collins, Is this passing the smell test to you? Collins scoffed at the explanation given that this took place only among low-level staffers and wondered aloud why Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew havent apologized for the agencys targeting of political opponents for more than a year up to the 2012 election.
“It’s an ongoing investigation and it would be too soon to jump to conclusions...”
“What difference does it make now anyway?”
“They acted stupidly.”
Its an ongoing investigation and it would be too soon to jump to conclusions...
“that’s old news and there’s no reason to discuss it further...”
At least until they devise a superficially plausible means of blaming it all on the Sequester.
He is busy on another national ‘I want more free stuff for you’ tour.
The travel alone will just cost another $10 Mil, no big deal.
He's trying to figure out who on his staff is involved, and what the PR and legal back-stops will be if they are uncovered
“Blame?” Is she actually stupid enough to think the Messiah will deign to answer some piss ant question about the IRS doing something naughty? How stupid is she?
Answering anything about it connects him to it. It won’t happen, and I’ll be you a dollar to a donut if he does, the words “the IRS Director is a Bush appointee” will spew forth from his evil lips.
There is only one reason for CNN to go after the IRS story and that is to hide their political princess Hillary from the atrocities of Benghazi.
What a serial liar has to say is not relevant.
They cannot apologize without offending the people in Government who were working for their election.
This is not only a violation of every rule of the IRS it is also a violation of the Hatch act and probably some RICO laws.
People should be going to jail (As if that’s going to happen).
Obama should ,because this is the type of thing he is always involved in
He hasn’t been read his Miranda rights yet.
This is SUCH an easy question to answer!
The reason dear leader has not commented on the IRS scandal is because he had nothing to do with it! And you have no evidence that he did, and even then, you can’t prove it. That is why he has not yet commented on Benghazi and Fast-n-Furious as well.
Let's not forget to remind the sheeple who is to blame for the Obama-directed problem.
remember: how obama abuses his authority will enable his successors to do the same.
What a stupid and set up question. Collins is on the same page with the commies. She only asks this as to make herself appear to care to win her next election. Nothing she said or says will hurt the commander in thief and she damn well knows it.
Obama’s thugs have done a full court press against conservative American citizens. The IRS is the tip of a totalitarian iceberg... Here’s a link to Homeland linking conservative parents who home school to terrorists....
