    When Republicans asked Mr. Miller whether the targeting of conservative groups was divulged to Obama administration officials outside the I.R.S., Mr. Miller said “that would be a violation of law.”

    “I would be shocked” if that occurred, he said.

     

    Oooops.

     

     



    THAT'S your gotcha moment? Because of course no one has ever broken the law before....hahahaha

    THAT'S your defense? Because of course no one has ever broken the law before....hahahaha

     

     




    What the heck are you smoking?

     

    So now in order for Obama to know about this someone would've had to break the law but that's no reason for Obama not to know about it.... because someone didn't break the law to tell him.


    How stupid are you?



    Actually I think you've been hitting the grain alcohol again. You've been one confused fool all day long. Yikes. Just as well you cowered that day.

    WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department’s inspector general told senior Treasury officials in June 2012 he was investigating allegations that the Internal Revenue Service had targeted conservative groups, disclosing for the first time on Friday that Obama administration officials were aware of the matter during the presidential campaign year.

    Why ain't the SCOTUS being blamed for this mess ?




    Perhaps because they have nothing to do with it.

    You libs who b*itch about campaign spending, your beef is with the 18th Century versions of the Koch Brothers, the Founding Fathers and their First Amendment, which messes with your beloved government controlling everything.

    In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:

    Here's the interesting thing, the majority of the key players joined the IRS during Bush administration.

    Lois Lerner: Oversaw tax-exempt groups at the IRS, started at the IRS in 2001.

    Douglas Shulman: The former IRS commissioner was appointed by George W. Bush.

    Steven Miller: The acting IRS commissioner since November and was the first to announce his resignation at the behest of President Obama on Wednesday.

    Joseph Grant: Commissioner of the IRS’ tax exempt and government entities division, joined the IRS in 2005

    J. Russell George: The Treasury inspector general for the tax administration, was appointed in 2004 by then-President George W. Bush.

    Daniel Werfel: President Obama said Thursday that he would assign Werfel, who’s currently the controller of the White House Office of Management and Budget, as his new acting IRS Commissioner. Werfel served under former President George W. Bush on the Federal Accounting and Standards Advisory Board.



    Here' what I get out of your post.  your position is:  Bush did it and Obama is innocent.

    Does that hit the nail on the head?

    Yes, it was the Bush operatives at IRS who were targeting conservatives and the fact that the guy who is falling on the sword is resigning in two weeks anyway is pure coincidense.  Its all so clear now.

    Wow

    Wow



    So, again, what's your point? All is ok because these people joined the IRS during the Bush years?

    You do understand none of that matters right?

     

    If, I take a job running a company say the size of Exxon/Mobil and 4 years later they find that during my tenure things have went really wrong. Do I get to say: wait I didnt know anything about that aspect of the company and those dept heads were there before me so, I have nothing to do with it?

     




    That's one of the funniest attempts at a false equivocation I've seen in a long time.

     

     

    The IRS isn't the only dept in the gov't.

    Did the CEO of Exxon lose his job over the Valdez accident?

    Was he even questioned publically on his tenure or in the subsequent court cases?

    Do you have any news stories where his performance as CEO was questioned?

    Ya, I didn't think so.

    Neo-cons sure do love their inane comparisons.



    Right. The IRS isn't the only department. So far, we have the IRS, Homeland Security, EPA, targeting conservatives. What department will be next?

    Point is...The Republicans have defeated all Obama's efforts to appoint someone. Therefore, it is run by holdovers from Bush. 

    Picture the IRS version of "heckuva job" Brownie.  And what do republicans hate more than taxes?  Nothing!, so they put these stooges in place(to be ineffective) then they prevent them from being replaced by the next administration.

    So it IS Bush's fault.

    OK.  Glad we cleared that up.

    BTW:  Do you have any proof that Obama's nominees was blocked, or did he just not get around to appointing anyone?
