Obama tells a whopper on IRS scandal (I say it is a bald-faced lie)
wash times ^ | 12/9/13 | j curl

Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That’s 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 don’t get a lot of attention,” the president said, no doubt sending a thrill up the MSNBC host’s 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 nation’s tax watchdog to target political opponents? Just a “screw-up.”

You bet. Manufactured in the media.

“If, on the other hand,” Mr. Obama said, ” you’ve 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 they’ve got a list. Suddenly everyone is outraged.

Lying is too easy when so few are willing to point out the obvious and hold him accountable.

Are you listening, John Boehner?

It’s not a “screwup” to target political opponents with a department of government.

It’s CORRUPTION.

Name one thing.

We're doomed as long as this cretin sits in the oval orifice and Congress is in session.

Is it common procedure for three people to resign trying to “streamline what is a difficult law”.

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.
