As you prepare to kick off your holiday weekend -- during which you will most assuredly ignore this chipper nannying
-- please enjoy this Washington Free Beacon
montage of Democrats playing obsequious defense
for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and his agency at recent Congressional hearings:
VIDEO: 1.07 minutes Useful Idiots: Democrats provide IRS best defense money can buy
The overwhelming majority of the American people want the IRS targeting scandal investigated further, as calls for a special prosecutor grow louder. Multiple polls show that people aren't buyingthe IRS' tall tale that a lone computer hard drive crash permanently deleted Lois Lerner's emails over a two year stretch that just happened to coincide with the advent of the abusive scheme. The lack of duplicates and triplicate records appears to be a clear violation of the IRS' own regulations , which were designed to comply with federal law. As Koskinen unapologetically sneered and stonewalled his way through several grillings, Democrats made fools of themselves by slavishly prostrating themselves before the corrupt, unforgiving tax collection agency that most Americans despise. These people love big government, so it only follows that they would practically worship its enforcers -- who were only doing the Lord's work in furtherance of this "phony scandal" anyway. Come to think of it, IRS is the closest thing bureaucratic Statism has to a military, and these Democratssupport their troops.
Parting thought: Most Americans intuitively understand that what happened at the IRS stinks to high heaven and hasn't been resolved, but they didn't see or hear much at all of the hearings. Might it be worth the RNC's time and money to run (admittedly expensive) nationwide ads that essentially replicate the clip above? Watching Democrats out-fangirling each other in service of an IRS protection scheme -- featuring multiple wildly misplaced calls for more funding -- might be an instructive spectacle for 'low information voters.' Maybe slip in a reminder at the end that these are the people tasked with enforcing Obamacare. Just spitballing here.
Of course they do. 100 years ago, the KKK was the Dems’ enforcement arm. They loved the Klan back then. Now the IRS is the Dems’ enforcement arm. Now they love the IRS. If you are a big, powerful organization that crushes the Dems’ opposition, they will love you.
In normal America it would be unreal that Congressmen from any side would show support for an admittedly lawbreaking rogue government agency, but especially the IRS. But this isn’t normal America anymore, may never be again.
Exactly right. The Rats have found themselves a leader in the WH that encourages corruption and illegal behavior by setting the example for them.
He also sets them the example of doubling down on arrogance to spite the citizens of this nation.
