The Spectator President
Townhall – Pat Buchanan – 5/2102013
This weekend we learned that the White House counsel was told this April about the IRS misconduct and the investigations, but she did not inform President Obama. He learned about it from news reports.
What we have here, it appears, is a government out of control and a president clueless about what is going on in that government.
And that is the best case. For it is difficult to believe the IRS could conduct a full-court press on Obama's opponents, that IRS higher-ups knew about it, years ago, and that Treasury knew about it before the election -- but the White House was kept in the dark about a scandal that could have derailed the Obama campaign.
For years, Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and other Democrats have slandered and slurred Tea Party people as enemies of progress -- smears echoed by their mainstream press allies.
Should we then be surprised that IRS bureaucrats, hearing this, thought they were doing what was right for
slow-walking applications for tax exemptions from these same Tea Party folks? America
Who demonized the Tea Party people? Who created the climate of contempt? Whoever did gave moral sanction to those IRS agents.
And the Spectator President is right in the vanguard.
BLOGGER COMMENT: Barack Obama’s staffer on the Sunday talk shows stated that public knowledge of the President’s whereabouts when Ambassador Stevens was murdered was “irrelevant,” but the President was kept informed by someone. Does Barack Obama do anything that is “relevant,” or are all affairs at the White House “irrelevant?”
