The IRS suppressed the Romney Vote
Rush Limbaugh – 5/22013
So this partisan attack on Tea Party and other conservative groups concerning tax-exempt status is still going on. There are groups who have applications in, and they're just languishing, no action has been taken. So the IRS doesn't have to flat-out deny you your status. They can just delay the approval. So you're sitting out there in limbo. And that is continuing to happen. And the upshot of it is that a lot of Tea Party money was never raised, and therefore was never spent on this campaign. A lot of Tea Party enthusiasm was tamped down. A lot of religious Tea Party groups never got into gear. They were never authorized to. They were never authorized to start. They needed to be able to fund-raise in a tax-exempt way in order to get starts and they weren't.
There is no question about it now. That's what this is all about. There was a flat-out effort to suppress the conservative vote in this election while everybody was listening to the allegation that conservatives wanted to suppress the black vote or the gay vote, all the attention focused on photo ID, to be able to vote. The Democrats, "That's racism. That's an effort to suppress the black vote." You remember all during that campaign the Democrats worried about Republican vote fraud and suppressing the vote. Well, where it really happened was the government, the IRS, another political arm of the Obama regime literally suppressing conservative voting, fundraising, and turnout.
So the election's over, we're analyzing it, talking about this, "What happened to the 2010 turnout?" Now we know, folks, now we know. The Democrats did take note of what happened to 'em in 2010. They did take note of what the Tea Party did, and by God, they made sure they weren't gonna be able to do it in 2012, and they did.
CALLER: My question is this. If we take Barack Obama at his word and all the people that are underneath him at their word, my question is, who's running this country? We have many scandals going on here. We have the Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, and the list goes on and on, the AP and so on, so forth, and then you have Barack Obama, the number one most powerful man in the world, and he has all these people underneath him, from Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney, Joe Biden, Leon Panetta, Lois Lerner, and on and on and on, and yet when they're asked questions they're like, "I don't know. I haven't heard anything," and then our president gets on national TV and broadcasts to the people: "Well, I get my news from the same place you do. I just heard about this last week over on the mainstream media." So if our president is as uninformed as he claims to be, who's running this country?
