Is this whole administration a house of cards that could tumble at any minute?

Moreover, details of the IRS’s efforts to target conservative groups reached the highest levels of the agency in May 2012, far earlier than has been disclosed, according to Republican congressional aides briefed by the IRS and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) on the details of their reviews.

Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington and at least two other offices were involved in the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, making clear that the effort reached well beyond the branch in Cincinnati that was initially blamed, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

And I'm not even sure which of these scenarios is worse.

I mean he is either the most despicable human being to ever occupy the White House or the most incompetent. Neither option speaks well of the electorate.

The comments in NBC's coverage of this are hilariously sad:

quote:

The President has taken a right stand today. I wonder if right wing groups are only part of the story. If the IRS audited right wing, left-wing & moderate groups, there is nothing wrong; then the only thing wrong is this biased FOX reporting singling out right-wing groups under IRS scrutiny. If the right-wing groups called themselves anti-tax TEA party,a nd TEA means 'Taxed Enough Already,' then IRS has done everything legal. It's their job to look into tax evasion if TEA party shows every intention to fight against taxation.


quote:

In the now infamous words, "what difference does it make?". The double wide crowd has been throwing everything including the kitchen sink at the wall to see what sticks. It's been one thing after the other, time after time, from day one. Jeebus himself could come down and say there is nothing to see here, and they would run the poor fellow out of town.


quote:

Govt Slave, the only person we are sure that lied about what was going on. Was a Bush appointee, so how is that theory of yours working out?


quote:

Given the circumstances of a huge (3,400!) increase in applications for tax exempt status after this ruling, I would say that if they did not make d@#n sure these groups were following the rules they would NOT be doing their jobs. Isn't the IRS supposed to make sure people are not trying to evade taxes? If they had denied these groups tax exempt status, there might be a problem here, but they didn't.

Obama tries to swat down 2 swirling controversies

By JULIE PACE
The Associated Press

SNIP

The IRS has apologized for what it said was "inappropriate" targeting of conservative political groups. The agency blamed low-level employees, saying no high-level officials were aware.

But a draft of an inspector general's report obtained by the AP says senior IRS officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011. The Treasury Department's inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the final report this week after a yearlong investigation.

The Benghazi investigation has trailed Obama for months, with many Republicans focused on how the White House first explained the attacks to the American people. Administration officials initially said the attacks appeared to grow out of a spontaneous demonstration, though it later concluded that they were planned acts of terror.

The White House has insisted there was no effort to change the initial administration "talking points" to downplay the prospect of terrorism.

But emails made public last week concerning the talking points that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice used five days after the Sept. 11 assault showed State Department and other senior administration officials asking that references to terror groups and prior warnings be deleted.

Re read that again. Seriously how many IG reports are out there? I read something that said they knew about one of the shocking ObamaGates since March.

Sounds like the media is trying to play catch-up and stay ahead of the shitstorm coming.
