Posted on 05/16/2013 3:30:52 AM PDT by Zakeet
Under pressure to show who's boss, President Obama called a press conference late Wednesday to say he was angry that the IRS singled out conservative groups for extra vetting and to announce that the agencys acting commissioner had been forced out.
"Its inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it," he said. "I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives."
Obama's former deputy press secretary, Bill Burton, said the president did the right thing by making a forceful statement on national television. "There are things that happen outside the control of the president, and to the extent that the president is able to take control of the situation, it's remarkably helpful," he said.
He cant let the Washington chattering class distract from his mission, said Capitol Hill lobbyist Steve Elmendorf. Every administration has these kind of distractions and they need to be managed and dealt with and not get thrown of his game.
A few hours before the press conference, Obama met with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., to discuss immigration reform.

I am an angry Wee Wee ... and I don't like these kind of distractions that need to be managed and dealt with ... so I made a forceful statement ... and that's more than enough to stop you Right Wing Nuts from throwing me off my game ... so you can shut your pie-holes ... or I'll sic my IRS jackboots on you ... again!
So, by forcing out the COMMISSIONER, isn't he admitting that the decisions were made by something other than a few rogue local Cincinnati peons?
He’ll be even angrier when the memo’s and such pointing up the chain of command come out.
America has waken up...and it is past time for that...LISTEN TO THE VOTERS AND TAXPAYERS FOR A CHANGE...
What a weenie.
HA!......the little boy king threatens America. Your reign is in danger..AMERICA wants answers, and so far all we get are more lies. Your Gestapo like tactics will do you in POS.
Obama asked someone to resign who had already agreed his job would terminate in fifteen days. And he’s staying on until then!
Man, he’s really angry.
He is so angry, he stepped up and threw the acting commissioner under the bus. A guy who was not even acting commissioner until after all this happened. Now that is angry. My suspicion would be that Obama threw the first guy he could find under the bus that he was certain *could not* sing to a prosecutor. You throw a guy under the bus that knows something and he can make problems for you.
...even more info comes out today...the fake administration, from top to bottom is unraveling. It’s falling apart. Let’s find out who bugged Congress?
He didn’t force out anyone. The guy put in his retirement a while ago . He is retiring in June anyway. This story is BS.
Just another lie.
This clown is so full of crap his eyes are brown.
Having written a lot of dialog, you try to stay away from cliché’s. I listen to Obama and the cliché movie dialog hits me; wham, wham. His thinking and speech are formed around TV dialog; simple, repetitive and unoriginal. Listen to any other president and compare, you’ll hear the difference. Men who form their thoughts and speech from book learning and experience form complex thoughts into simple sentences. Kennedy said, “I know you think you understand what you thought I said. I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.” Churchill said, “Never have so many owed so much to so few.” Caesar said, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” But our “most articulate president” needs a teleprompter to address kindergartners. Really.
The ACTING Commissioner’s term was up in June anyway. Just another distraction like Holder’s imaginary recusal.
A cornered rat fights back.
He’s angry he got caught.
The MSM Talking heads will excuse this issue and blame Republicans for being political
about a political issue. They are lining up the ducks now.
Obama: Just words, just speeches.
“Obama asked someone to resign who had already agreed his job would terminate in fifteen days. And hes staying on until then!”.
Apparently the position is a 6 mos. “temporary” position as director. The current term was ending in June. Stepping down one month early is NOT the same as being “fired”. Infact, the guy gets to keep his job in the IRS.
Odumbo goes out and fakes anger to make it look like he is actually in charge. He is not! Just another example of the “smoke and mirros” MO in the Odumbo administration.
Obama is so angry that he will demand a punishment of twenty lashes with a peacock feather.
Obama is drowning in SCANDAL!
Angry he go caught!
Really? I'm trying to remember Bush's comparable "distraction".
It’s easy to be outraged when you’ve already reaped the benefits of others illegal actions.
cry me an effing river.
Hey steaming pile, It’s your Adminstration, You are suppose to be in Charge! You are suppose to know what is going on!
Mr. Kenya you are no Jack Kennedy, you are more like Jack Hoff.
Obama = POS
So angry he had to read it off the teleprompter.FRAUD
Actually this can be pretty smart for the O’bummerr administration:
1. - show the “fake “ outrage and the “I am in charge”
2.- the “director” gets full benefits and gets to keep
working for the demonrats.
3. the director walks off the job- claims to not remember
anything- has no Memo’s,emails,papers- does not know
where anything is - because he is no longer incharge-
Hell, maybe claims he does not remember where he was
for the past few years-
4. All the rino’s can cluck- along with this administration
“MOVE ALONG”- “nothing to see here!”
“”Its inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” he said. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives.”
You lying sack of dung..You gave the the order to do it..You are just angry you got caught..
The IRS is not a democrat or republican entity. It is run by WHOEVER IS IN POWER at the time.
Darth Obama is behind it ALL.
I’m profoundly offended hearing him get up and say that HE is angry and will not tolerate this. It was HIS action. HE profits from this stuff, not the IRS. They were taking orders from their ‘boss’.
Why don’t I believe the marxist?
He comes across as “angry” all the time, often in a refined passive-agressive way. He is not “cool”, he is cold and calculating.
As the IBD editorial pointed out,
what makes this so ironic is that it was just a couple of weeks ago that 0bama was mocking the “voices that warn of government tyranny just around the corner”.
Yep, don’t have to worry about that tyranny “just around the corner”, because it’s here and now, and has been since 2010.
I am angry that I, and my family have been harassed and continually discriminated against, by the government, the media, by the schools and by a progressive culture, because we are white, Christian and conservative.
We have been denied opportunities for my children, because they are white males, by every institution I have tried to work with, for their education.
It is no different than that little girl in the Civil Rights movement, that we have all seen in historic footage. For what it is worth-I am a supporter of civil rights for all Americans. I always have been. Yet I face the politics of revenge against me, because of my skin color.
I am sick of it.
I have felt the sense building that there is actually a plan to imprison or even kill conservatives, to further a political agenda. Or to at least keep us paying taxes, but have no voice in they way we are governed.
I have had “friends” believe it is acceptable to hurl names at me, call me a racist, disassociate from me, and keep me out events, because of my christian association and political beliefs.
I see the amount of hate crimes and violence, countrywide, escalate against people of my pigmentation, to the point where I don’t fee safe traveling in cities anymore, or doing my homeless/job developing street ministry in down town areas. WHY? Because I am white and they are black. I had not noticed that before THIS past election.
You are angry Obama? This isn’t your country. You hold none of the morals, ethics or dreams of Americans. You want blind power, like some third world dictator.
You have imported , intimidated and brainwashed people, to your point of view. All in the pursuit of getting rid of people like me and my children.
I have ancestors who have fought in most of Americas wars, including the one at Lexington and Concord- all the way back to the Revolution. And now I am treated like a parasite, in my own country, for being the kind of person who follows the laws and pays attention to our heritage.
And I know that you are just the leader, for the moment, of the progressive movement. But even I had hope for you that you might just turn your heart, and do something good with huge amount of political capital you had.
I had a dream, that you would be fair, and just- because after all you were the face of the America dream to many millions of people- and to the world.
And what did you do?
Yes, Saul Alinksy would be proud of your huge accomplishments- but Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would cry. What have you accomplished? More power for your friends, nothing else.
You have divided this country worse than it has ever been with your cursed, hateful speech against people. You shame and mock people for their skin color, their spiritual and their political beliefs.
And with all of your political power, and the promise of millions of people wanting you to do that right thing, and following every word you say.. you are still not above God. Everyday we are given two paths. One a blessing and one a curse.
You always seem to choose the curse. WHY?
I am praying for you. And for your entire administration.
It used to be said that white folks couldn’t be discriminated against, because “we” ran the institutions..
Let’s have a national discussion about, shall we?
An American Mother
The only reason he is mad, is that he got caught.
Anyone else hear that black woman call into Hannity yesterday that was absolutely ecstatic that conservatives were being targeted by the IRS?
Her reason - payback. She stated that the EXISTANCE of conservatives/republicans is oppressive to her.
So, by unstated extension, she would advocate for the extermination of conservatives. Don’t doubt it. This is not an isolated viewpoint.
And I am not surprised anymore.
