Lois Lerner's Own Words

Emails undercut the official IRS story on political targeting.

 The Wall Street Journal-Congress's investigation into the IRS targeting of conservatives has been continuing out of the Syria headlines, and it's turning up news. Emails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee between former Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner and her staff raise doubts about IRS claims that the targeting wasn't politically motivated and that low-level employees in Cincinnati masterminded the operation.

In a February 2011 email, Ms. Lerner advised her staff—including then Exempt Organizations Technical Manager Michael Seto and then Rulings and Agreements director Holly Paz—that a Tea Party matter is "very dangerous," and is something "Counsel and [Lerner adviser] Judy Kindell need to be in on." Ms. Lerner adds, "Cincy should probably NOT have these cases."

That's a different tune than the IRS sang in May when former IRS Commissioner Steven Miller said the agency's overzealous enforcement was the work of two "rogue" employees in Cincinnati. When the story broke, Ms. Lerner suggested that her office had been unaware of the pattern of targeting until she read about it in the newspaper. "So it was pretty much we started seeing information in the press that raised questions for us, and we went back and took a look," she said in May.

These articles with the sensational claims "blows (fill in the blank) wide open" are both humorous and annoying.

There is nothing, repeat, N O T H I N G that will harm the Obama administration.

I feel the same way.  Almost all the republicans in the Senate & Congress seem to stand by helplessly like a bunch of cowards while Obama takes down our country.

Only a mass public uprising, culminating in an overwhelming electoral repudiation of Democrats, will be effective. And for that to work, people are going to have to get their information from alternative sources - which is happening, at least at the margins. The news media will never - NEVER - allow Obama to be put in a negative light, nor will they connect the dots between Obama and the scandals erupting around him.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I have no idea what you people are complaining about. Obama has promised to fix this and hold "the responsible parties accountable". What more do you want?

Quote
Speaking with reporters at the White House, the president said he had reviewed a Treasury Department report on "IRS personnel who improperly screened conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, "and the misconduct that it uncovered is inexcusable."

He said he would "do everything in my power to make sure nothing like this happens again by holding the responsible parties accountable, by putting in place new checks and new safeguards, and going forward, by making sure that the law is applied as it should be -- in a fair and impartial way."

"I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives," he said, announcing that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had asked for and received the resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller.

"And as I said earlier, it should not matter what political stripe you're from -- the fact of the matter is, is that the IRS has to operate with absolute integrity," Obama said.

I believe I read elsewhere he's going to get to this just as soon as he can straighten out that pesky kink in his back swing.

Bob Beckel just went on and on about what a good thing this is because those "evil" Tea Party people have no right to raise money.  Amazing how he ignores all the Soros-funded 501's who regularly raise money and spend it to advance their liberal causes.
