The IRS has, for some yet unexplained reason, admitted to targeting Constitutional Conservative Groups.
Full AP Story Here.
The IRS has apologized for doing this.
Okay then. I accept the apology and will move on.
In other words… “that’s good enough for me”.
It would be hypocritical of me to attempt to politicize this story and suggest that the current Administration would use the IRS to intimidate and/or destroy those who stand opposed to their Socialist ideas. It would be unreasonable to offer up any explanation for such an action which could be interpreted as ideologically motivated.
Any Objective observer must immediately acknowledge that had such a mission been promoted under a Conservative White House, there would be no outcry from the Left.
In addition, had it been discovered the IRS specifically targeted Liberal groups in the early 2000’s, a simple apology from George Bush would be accepted without a moment’s hesitation.
It’s time we all grow up. “What does it really matter anyway!?”, as our former Secretary of State and Presidential Hopeful famously shouted.
Along the same lines, it’s time we all move on from:
Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Boston Terrorist Taxpayer Subsidies, Illegal Phone Taps, Illegal e-mail Access, Monetizing the Debt, Printing Money, Government Waste, Voter Fraud, Pigford…. a new “Housing Bubble“.
At least that’s what the Organizer, from Organizing for Action, told me to do when he called me on my free Government Phone.
I’m still waiting for Government Bourbon. Then… they might have me, accept it would most likely taste awful… and be non-alcoholic. The only upside is you would be buying it for me.
(PS. Do you think they would have fessed-up to this if they didn’t have to? Me neither. There is another shoe here… and someone is about to be beat to death with it.)

Mike, I am so glad you can see ‘the forest from the trees’ or is it ‘the trees from the forest’ -who the hell cares? I hate trees.
BTW, I don’t often follow a blog the first time I’ve read it but I’m signing up for yours and thank god, I don’t have to kill a tree to do it

I hope I deliver on your early commitment. And, I’m pretty sure God is OK with killing Trees… so get out there and start chopping. Cheers, Mike.

you really think if the tables were turned the left wouldn’t have thrown a fit? Really? Not that I am taking sides…AT ALL. To me this is almost a non issue.
