A Banana Republic, If You Can Keep It

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

The IRS has released a list of nearly 500 conservative groups it targeted for extra scrutiny to delay their fundraising abilities and thereby allow Democrats to outraise, outspend and out-advertise their way to winning the election.

I’m so old that I can remember the President of the United States insisted there was not even a smidgen of corruption at the IRS.

 With this new information, I guess the President will be outraged to learn he was misled, heads will roll, people will be fired and prosecuted.  Hell, the President might even step down out of sheer embarrassment, knowing that his party intentionally violated the civil rights of millions of Americans for the benefit of Democrats in Congress.

Ya gotta have faith.

  1. What was really nasty about that comment about there not being a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS was that Obama wasn’t supposed to know the details of the investigation. Under those circumstances, it is hard to view his statement as anything but instructions to the JD lawyers that they were not to find a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS. Also, note that Obama did not say that Conservative groups were not singled out for extra scrutiny, or that their applications were not delayed.

  2. poor Richard Nixon, if only he’d had Obama’s knack for appointing people with a discernible lack of integrity.

  3. What is it now with Lerner? Maybe i’m dense here, but I thought she’d ridden into the sunset and stonewalling FOIA requests had kept her out of the papers.

    Bento, good point. Dear Leader certainly does have a nasty habit of interfering with investigations, doesn’t he?
