Sooooooo.. you think THIS story was deemed by the White House to be big enough to get Conservatives' minds off Benghazi and that's why it's made the news now?
Personally, I think it's even worse than Benghazi's cover-up.
White Houses do sometimes make mistakes in international situations such as Benghazi (of course, Z just invited at least 5 leftwing-commenter red herrings by saying that; they'll do anything to obfuscate from the truth in my post, right?), but the IRS coming down on "Patriots" and "Tea Party members"? That is not something White Houses normally do. That's so unAmerican and HUGE, that this really needs looking into. Also, to think of "Patriots" as an enemy is quite something.
Then, there's Jay Carney saying that the IRS isn't part of the Government
? He said it's "an independent enforcement agency." Hey, isn't the Treasury part of our government? And isn't the IRS part of the Treasury
..a big part? Sure it is. Carney's either stupid, uninformed, or he thinks you're either or both of those things.
This IRS story is, in and of itself, quite a story. Benghazi is quite a story
...and it's finally becoming even more a story, with honest leftwingers even realizing something crooked's going on at the White House.
So.....is the Benghazi story SO BIG that the WH would risk the IRS story coming out NOW?
The IRS bigwigs have known about this since at least 2011. THIS
is probably the best article on the fiasco. By the way, Schulman, one of those denying this was going on when it first came up, was a Bush appointee, so let's just get that out there before a geeeeZ-leftwing commenter uses that as another red herring. We get it, we don't CARE. What happened is WRONG
. And those at his high position level weren't apparently involved and might not have known; this was all done by agents who needed a way to categorize tax exemptions (Karl Rove's bunch and moveon.org were two groups requesting exemption. It's pertinent to mention liberal whackos like moveon.org were not singled out by IRS agents. That it got to "Patriots" is quite another story.) By the way, CBS is very unhappy with excellent reporter, Sharyl Attkison, asking questions about Benghazi and not obfuscating for the White House...very unhappy INDEED
. The leftwingers just can't stand a writer who explores all sides, can it.
SO...the IRS story is a story on its own, no doubt about it.
Let's not let this overtake Benghazi in its huge importance.
People DIED. This isn't Watergate and this isn't the IRS's unbelievable and highly illegal bias. Benghazi is about PEOPLE DYING. It needs to be investigated more.
But, so does the IRS story. Gee, the Obama folks are on the defense now, huh? Finally?
God save this country, because most of us aren't recognizing it anymore.
