statements in the [groups] case file criticize how the country is being run.
-- One of the criteria used by IRS investigators to target small-government groups for special scrutiny, according to an agency audit provided to congressional investigators.
Team Obama has always known how to make the most of critics in order to make the least of criticism.
During the 2008 campaign, it was Stop the Smears, an Obama effort to single out those who made claims about the candidates nativity, faith or personal conduct, rounding up the most slanderous and paranoiac claims, publicizing and then refuting them.
Then when more credible individuals would get near the subject, the campaign could strike back. Recall Hillary Clinton back in March 2008 on CBS strenuously defending then-Sen. Barack Obama against claims that he was a Muslim but then leaving the door open just a bit by saying, As far as I know.
Obamaland went on the attack over those five words, and Clinton paid dearly.
And so it went in office. The best example was how much attention was paid to the small number of people focused on the idea that President Obama was born someplace other than Hawaii. They even had coffee mugs made with the presidents birth certificate.
For weeks, as John Boehner or Mitch McConnell went out to talk about tax policy or spending, they would have to face questions about the presidents birth certificate.

He had insufferable arrogance and false self esteem built up by Affirmative Action and the slobbering leftist media.

But the credibility that allows him to side our beloved nation with Muslims, that actually has not been damaged at this point, per the ever wise Thos. Sowell, who writes on this today.
Might that be something like "Obama conscience" or "Obama dignity"?
Credibility as defined in The American Heritage Dictionary 2nd College Edition:
1. capable of being believed, plausible
2. worthy of confidence, reliable
Yep, Obama has no credibility. Probably will try for plausible deniability, which is not real either
Solution - IMPEACHMENT
Let’s not shut the door on Fast and Furious so fast. Someone should resurrect that. How did Obama and Holder escape that? Would the press assist them so much again if it were brought up again?
WHI reports that the CIA is coming next for blood and they don’t play nice. Look for serious leaks by Friday.
That’s what I was thinking!
Check up-posts. It’s now THREE!!
1) Benghazi Cover-up
2) IRS Civil Rights Violations
3) AP Illegal Wiretap
The only times I have believed him were when he said he would side with America's enemies, when he said he believed in spreading other people's wealth around, and when he said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. Otherwise, that evil, bigoted, drug-addled communist has no credibility at all.
It is up to FOUR now!
Sebelius of HHS was doing something also....not sure what.
Thanks for posting.
Barry sure seems to be getting a lot of attention of lately. He just loves the attention. :)
Heck there are dozens of scandals lurking and the sharp knives are out!
It is happening before our very eyes. This is just the start.
