The White House will not be pushing for a special prosecutor to handle the IRS scandal involving the targeting of conservative groups, even as three-fourths of Americans are calling for one.

Asked aboard Air Force One about a Quinnipiac University poll that showed 76 percent of Americans want a special prosecutor to handle the case, White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the administration isnít looking at that option.

I think a SP will come before the mid terms, though not right away.

Democrat Obama used the gestapo IRS to rig the election for
him and the democrats/socialists in the Senate.

Obama’s IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting organized. Other gov agencies also involved in stealing the election. So IRS and other agencies coordinated in rigging the election.Why isn’t anyone shouting this from the rooftops( calling Coulter, Malking, Palin, Rush , Levin, Drudge?)

The IRS intimidated good conservative Americans into not raising funds for the election, The IRS criminals massively suppressed conservative voter turnout. the 2012 election must be contested. The IRS rigged it. the media said the democrat ground game was superior . that’s bs. now we know what happened to the tea party of 2010 . the IRS destroyed it.

These arrogant communists/democrats at the IRS act like they are above the law.

No other country has a Gestapo IRS running their healthcare.

Government doesn’t work. It’s not just cause it’s big. Walmart is big but works cause capitalism works. Abolish the IRS. Impeach and imprison democrat Obama

The enemy is the democrat party = government

Translation of what he really said.”Independent prosecutor? Are you crazy? You know what happened here. Do you think Obama would appoint an independent investigation with real teeth? It would bring down our administration. Get real. The Left never apologizes or does anything to hold itself accountable. Independent prosecutor? What planet are you on? When we reelect Pelosi as Speaker our troubles will be over. Until then we will delay , spin and just scream racism.”

... three-fourths of Americans are calling for [a special prosecutor].

People understand IRS audits, and rightly fear misuse of same. Even Dems!

We do not need a special prosecutor to know that this administration is anti American....treasonous even.

And it is our opinion that counts. Not some court ruling. Some “ findings”.

Well then, I say 76 percent of Americans decide it is time for a TAX REVOLT, until this is investigated thoroughly.

The White House is doing its best to keep this story out of the news. The IRS has always been the Democrats’ personal Gestapo. And liberals certainly don’t care; to them, the only crime is not being one.

And Ben Ferguson, the idiot morning drive time jock on WPAP AM, said today that Obama hasn’t done anything to warrant impeachment.

I damn near threw the radio out the window.
