Skip to comments.Obama tells a whopper on IRS scandal (I say it is a bald-faced lie)

Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. Thats a fact. Congress held hearings embarrassing hearings. Three top Internal Revenue Service officials resigned. No heads rolled, but for the Obama administration, and the lawless Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., that amounted to a major scandal. Even White House spokesman Jay Circus Carney called the IRS actions inappropriate. Fact.
But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media.
When we do things right, they dont get a lot of attention, the president said, no doubt sending a thrill up the MSNBC hosts leg. If we do something that is perceived at least initially as a screw-up, it will be on the nightly news for a week.
Like, say, deploying the nations tax watchdog to target political opponents? Just a screw-up.
You bet. Manufactured in the media.
If, on the other hand, Mr. Obama said, youve got an office in Cincinnati in the IRS office that, I think for bureaucratic reasons, is trying to streamline what is a difficult law to interpret about whether nonprofit is actually a political organization, deserves a tax exempt agency [sic], and theyve got a list. Suddenly everyone is outraged.

Are you listening, John Boehner?
Lying is the default position for the left
It’s not a “screwup” to target political opponents with a department of government.
Q: How can you tell when Obama is telling the truth?
A: No one knows - it’s never happened yet.
Name one thing.
We're doomed as long as this cretin sits in the oval orifice and Congress is in session.
Nixon screwed up.
Is it common procedure for three people to resign trying to “streamline what is a difficult law”.
Obama LIED, your health insurance died.
He can rot in hell.
I sent my last check to the IRS. Income now 0 and gone Galt.
When you lie as much as you breathe, you forget all of your earlier lies ....
Lying is his life long habit.
He’s not even admitting it was as much as a “screw-up” but only something that was initially perceived as a screw-up.
I didn’t watch the Obama interview. I just fast forwarded it to the money shot and sure enough Tingles got what he wanted.
