Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that.

The IRS’s admission last Friday that it had singled out tea party and other groups for extra audits and delays has raised concerns that President Barack Obama’s administration quietly attempted to stymy opponents through intimidation.

If Obama did not fear that the underlings he appointed, would turn on him and tell all, he would not just let them resign, he would demand that they be prosecuted and sent to prison. But he is just doing the first stage of the DC dance, he is trying to create the image that he is doing something and is shocked. He likely knew that the IRS political appointees were using the IRS for political black ops. His hope is that people will continue to suspend reality and not look at what he does, but cling to what he says. That will be enough for his cult like followers. This is so much like the Nixon White House is scary.

Barack reminds me of Mike Tyson. Both kid protégés, no parental love or guidance, manipulated in their thinking, and groomed for a greedy purpose by people with greedy intentions. Mike Tyson, had a couple big moments then made an ass of himself. Barack is on the verge of the same, inevitable melt-down. I feel sorry for both of them in their parental abandonment. Misguided children, left twisting in the wind. Our commander in chief needs a permanent vacation.

@GooseDroppings: Maybe since you know so much about Obozo and how good of a president he is, why don't you call him and ask him for a position? And if you get the job, take your chiropractor with you because if you get your head any further up Obozo's ssa your are going to need him. People like you make people like us want to puke. I don't know which is dumber, you or Obozo.

“I'm not sure how many of those cases ... I have actually signed off on.”

-- Attorney General Eric Holder in a Tuesday interview with National Public Radio when asked how often he has authorized the seizure of reporter records.

The acting director of the IRS has left his post three weeks ahead of schedule, but how can it be that others more intimately involved with the targeting and harassment of the president’s political enemies are still on the job today?

That’s the first question facing the White House today as the president continues to struggle to find his feet amid broadening allegations of wrongdoing against his administration."

WASHINGTON – The IRS official who led the tax-exempt organizations unit when Tea Party groups were targeted is now in charge of the IRS office responsible for ObamaCare, two Capitol Hill sources told Fox News.

The acknowledgement comes after the administration announced that the official’s successor -- who had only been on the job a few days -- would be retiring. And it fueled criticism of the agency, as the outgoing IRS commissioner prepared to face lawmakers’ questions at a hearing Friday morning.

“Stunning. Just stunning,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said in reaction to the latest development

BBBWHAHAHAAH! ****ed-up the IRS, NOW moving on to Obamascare.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong??? If you are a conservative, you are BANNED from getting medical care???

NOBODY dares to impeach the first black president even if he rapes a 2 year old and posts it on Twitter.

The liberal press would scream racism and the Black Panthers would out to give a beatdown to anybody who tries.

The best revenge is Owebama is so badly damaged the DEMOCRATS beg him to resign.

President Biden: Now THERE'S a scary thought!

While potentially much worse than Watergate, impeachment talk is wasted breath. Obama has more buses than people to go under them and w/ a Dem Senate it is impossible. Instead of creating a huge negative sentiment, let the bus trodden tell the tale!

gOOSEMAN: Nothing in the emails supports theories that the talking points were changed in order to influence the 2012 election.

Oh, Really! This occurred in September 2012. The first Presidential debate was less than a month away. Then what was their motivation for lying?

Q: Can you assure the American people that nobody in the White House knew about the agency's actions before your counsel's office found out on April 22?

A: I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the (inspector general) report...'

So an IRS chief who was retiring in 2 months was asked to retire 2 months earlier. You sure handled that one tough, Barry. That'll be a strong signal to all the other lawbreakers in your Administration. LOL

Outside of the Democratic Party no one else believes Miller is nothing more then a scapegoat. I also wonder how much of a golden parachute awaits Miller to take this fall.
