The IRS Scandal, Day 805

IRS Logo 2Washington Examiner, Obama to Jon Stewart: IRS Never Targeted Conservatives:

President Obama in a taped appearance with the Daily's Shows Jon Stewart Tuesday denied that IRS targeted conservatives, an assertion that Stewart then appeared to ridicule him for making. ...

[President Obama noted] that Stewart and others had jumped on a story that employees had been targeting conservatives.

"It turns out," Obama said, that wasn't true. He said Congress "passed a crummy law" that provided vague guidance to the people who worked at the IRS. And he said that employees implemented the law "poorly and stupidly."

"Boy, you really do have only a year left," Stewart interjected.

But Obama jumped back in, blaming Congress for not providing enough funds for both the IRS and the Department of Veterans Affairs to work properly.

The real scandal around the IRS, he said, "is that they have been so poorly funded that they cannot go after these folks who are deliberately avoiding tax payments."

This mug can't say anything without lying. Joe Wilson gets vindicated every day.

Blaming the victims, stay classy President Obama. You have the rest of your life to defend hour Marxist police state policies. We won't forget and we won't let you forget either.

Exactly what one would expect from this world class liar.

Joseph Goebbels would be awfully proud of how Obama and his Democrats use The Big Lie every day of the week. It's just a reminder that modern liberals openly despise the principles of the Englightenment and embrace the totalitarian principles of Marx and Mussolini.
