Mr. Obama said. “It should not matter what political stripe you’re from. The fact of the matter is the I.R.S. has to operate with absolute integrity.”

Then why did Mr. Obama appoint a tax cheat to be the head of the treasury???

This just shows how ridiculous this whole thing is. He was going to be gone shortly anyways.

They’re kidding right? What do they think the country is just full of idiots like Joy Behar?

This and the other scandals aren’t going away, they will all end up being hung around Obama’s neck. Because they should be.

He probably has enough saved up annual leave to get out now. However, he’s not the guy ~ this is a feint to mislead you about the real perps ~ Timothy Geitner and his running dog lackeys!

I heard he hasn't left and won't leave until a replacement is appointed. This is a 'firing' where he doesn't even really lose his job. Just like everything else with Obama it's just a pile of BS.

I knew this was a crock of sh!t when I heard it.

What needs to happen is this, we drag these people out by the hair of their heads and promise not to hang them all if they simply quit aand walk out.

Naw, screw it, hang em all, anyway. Traitors all!

Ya know if this shit wasn’t so serious it would be funny.

And Obama jumps up and takes credit for getting rid of the guy.

Can you believe this arrogant POS?

"The country" elected him twice. I'd say they have every right to think so.

One would think we had cleared all his pawns off the board by now but it seems like there’s always one more ready to fall for his king. Stupid pawns.

Don’t feel bad for him! In exchange for his silence, he’s going to get a cushy VP job from some huge Obama donor.

Obastard is just throwing out a sacrifice in the hopes that the GOP will be satisfied. You can guarantee this guy has a cushy job at some liberal organization promised to him.

"Mr. Obama spoke to reporters after an Oval Office meeting with Mr. Lew and his deputy, Neil Wolin, who will be responsible for carrying out the president’s orders to install safeguards to prevent a similar effort."

'Orders' to read, "next time, don't be stupid enough to get caught."

Miller’s boss is the Secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew. Yes, he should resign, without being asked. But ultimately Zero is accountable. The targets have been complaining for a long time about the harassment they were subjected to, and while Zero now calls the conduct “inexcusable” and says that he “will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency” - the fact is he did tolerate it and he did excuse it, while it served his purposes in getting reelected and until it could no longer be kept under wraps.

Accepting the resignation of an interim employee within days of the planned end of his employment is an absolute farce. The threat of criminal action should open a few mouths as to where the orders really came from. This administration has no credibility remaining, as if it ever had some to any thinking, informed person.
