IRS Commissioner Koskinen tried to channel Colonel Jessup but failed to generate any of the character’s sympathetic aspects and focused only on the Smugness:
“Well how would you know what elements of the crime existed? You don’t even know what statutes are in play,” Gowdy said, visibly annoyed. “I’m going to ask you again: What statutes have you evaluated?”
“Common sense? Instead of the criminal code, you want to rely on common sense? No, Mr. Koskinen, you can shake your head all you want to, commissioner. You have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion.”
You want to know what is wrong with our Government?
Commissioner Koskinen is what’s wrong with our Government. All of the Bureaucrats that see the world as he does are what’s wrong with our Government. An institution that is so accustomed to ‘being the law’ and see no reason to know the law is what’s wrong with our Government.
Elitist, Smug Liberal Progressives have taken over the Government from the top down. It happened over time. It is complete.
Now that there has been an unabridged War declared on the only opposing Ideology it is presenting itself for all to see.
The Koskinen’s, Lerner’s, et al. are coming out of the shadows into the sun.
In light of Jonathan Gruber’s video taped Honesty… I felt this was worth a repost, just as a reminder that they All think you’re Stupid and they’re above your Stupid laws.
