McConnell: IRS Scandal Likely Doesn't Reach The White House
RCP ^ | June 21, 2013

Posted on 06/21/2013 5:17:47 PM PDT by princeofdarkness

SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): "I am prepared to say, and I will say today, I think the president and his political allies encouraged this kind of bureaucratic overreach by their public comments. But that’s quite different from saying they ordered it. With regard to who’s actually responsible for it, we need to find out: that investigation will go on for quite some time."

Oh, I think that McConnell is right, that there would never be any smoking gun evidence to tie Obama to the IRS scandal. Obama used a dog whistle.

It is a shame to have watched the entire USA go
down on its knees to al Qaeda, narcoterrorists,
and DNC-corruption aided and abetted by McConnell
and Boehner.

The only reason I’m going to remain a registered Republican is so I can MESS with their primaries.

He may have. I’m just not sure if he has that much creativity or motivation.

More than likely MOST of your ‘esteemed colleagues’ were the ones writing to ask the task be done.

Cruz should have your position you old, ineffective coot.

With the exception of a very few, those in congress are cabal members. They have worked against the American people time and again.

Perhaps the NSA has decimated information on these people, facilitating blackmail.

John Roberts comes to mind.

The Gobbler has been blackmailed. Probably had something to do with a Kentucky racehorse in a stall.

Like I posted earlier on a different thread. When all else fails the Republican Party can always be counted on to do two , actually three , things. To wit: 1. Defend obama. 2. Attack Sarah Palin. 3. Attack Conservatives.

Hitler left no paper trail to tie him to the Holocaust.

It doesn’t mean he didn’t plan it and it doesn’t mean that his Sycophant underlings didn’t know what was expected of them...

like most of the GOP.

They still act like good 19th century gentleman and have not understood yet that the left fights like street fighters and have thrown out all manners, etiquette etc.

They keep losing and then blame it on the base. They fight who we want like Sarah but then blame it on us when they lose

no balls and he;s trying to tell us that Obama had no idea this was going on, has no idea about all this spying , corruption etc.

The man and most of this party are spineless who sell out in the name of partisanship because they listen they listen to talking head buffoons like bill O, R

Hannnity had him on the radio for an interview on Thursday and he stated that the democrats “bugged his office” like it was a simple prank on a feeble old man, and at the same time stating that he thinks the imposter is a good guy that he gets along with well, just doesn’t like his positions on things. The gobbler will be easily re-elected in his state and continue as the minority non-leader. We need to kill this party and replace - not restore - with the Tea Party!

We know that the IRS assistant and the head of the IRS combined spent several hundred visits to the white House when George W. had only a single visit then it is up to Obama to explain what appears to be a huge operation in which he clearly was n charge.

When a government agency continually keeps up a clearly illegal operation and visits the President literally hundreds of times. while this is going on. then one should not have to drag out questions from Obama. He clearly needs to explain himself.

McConnell is a traitor. If the WH isn’t involved, why is there NO attempt to investigate what happened? FBI director Mueller told Congress he didn’t even know who was heading the investigation BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ONE. And so, WHO would’ve ordered there’d be no investigation? OBAMA! This is reminiscent of Benghazi where OBAMA delayed entry by the FBI for weeks. We’re STILL waiting for documents from ‘Fast & Furious’.. Ya know, that OTHER scandal 0bama didn’t know anything about.. AAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, just to be clear and for a sanity check: At no point does McConnell, useless as he is, say this does NOT go to the White House. That tidbit was added by the headline writer, and countless FReepers fell for it like a ton of sh*t. Good going, gang. You’ve been played.

Sadly, proving a negative gains no believers. Ya gotta prove they did it and Issa is too inept to do so. That’s like saying “prove they aren’t Martian”.

This moron is minority leader in the Senate? Totally unaware that he is in a war where the opposition never yields an inch, lies, dissimulated, denies, delays and destroys.

We need opposing leadership equal to that task!

What a retard, yes, the investigation will go on for quite a while, idiot; until around the end 0f 2016, to be exact.

I'll let you figure out why.

Ha!

I've been doing that since my second ever election, 1964.

No fan of JFK.

I've voted for many exciting demonrats in all primaries.

Wait a minute here.
Do a search on 'Fuhrerprinzip'. DO IT NOW. Study what you find for a few minutes, and then post agin. Before you do it imagine the moral and intellectual convolutions the minority leader of the 'senate' must attempt while explaining to the public 'media' how this principle applies to the party in power, the whole of the apparatus under its control, and the severity of the consequences thereof.
Remember, "It can't happen here."
Spare just a minute.

Been a half hour or so. Read yet? Obama and his minions are doing the big power grab, so Republicans, as a party deserve to die. Is this the Free Republic position, or what?

Yes. Scary shit. Just follow orders. Forget the morality or legality of the actions.
