Obama: No special prosecutor to investigate IRS



I'm shocked.

LINK

quote:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama dismissed the idea of a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service Thursday, saying probes by Congress and the Justice Department should be able to figure out who was responsible for improperly targeting tea party groups when they applied for tax-exempt status.

"Between those investigations I think we're going to be able to figure out exactly what happened, who was involved, what went wrong, and we're going to be able to implement steps to fix it," Obama said at a Rose Garden press conference.

Imagine if the CEO of Enron had said, "No, it's cool, the government doesn't need to get involved, we have people working at Enron to investigate this. And I'm going to make sure it never happens again."

re: Obama: No special prosecutor to investigate IRS


"Part of the first question was about whether Obama would consider a Special Prosecutor regarding the IRS scandal. It is inevitable that one WILL be named at some point as pressure builds for one. Obama had a chance to get out front on the IRS issue by either saying he would name one or at least say that is one option he is looking at. Instead, he states his confidence that Holder & Justice , as well as internal IRS functionaries, are quite able to get to the source of the problem. Big fail on his part."

He is trying to avoid the melt down of Nixons' firing of the Independant investigator.

-KNOW YOUR ENEMY- MSNBC has some guy that speaks like he is from the UK, he has an attorney on saying that Issa is a criminal a building burnt down. What a joke. And they wonder why ratings are low? Seriously how shameful.

Obama is not going to get away with this. He is not answering because he does not want to incriminate himself.

If ever I am charged with a crime, I think I will make this same request. I am licensed and perfectly capable of handling my own prosecution. No need for an assistant DA to waste tax dollars.

See. I am for efficient government.

My goodness, this board has gone nuts.

Yes, Obama and the IRS lied. They've done it before. They will do it again. Nothing will come of it. Seems like a waste of energy to get so upset about this.

Good. That will be the Dems biggest nightmare in '14 and '16. If Bob Beckel says this scandal has long legs then maybe it's a little too soon not to be upset at this point.

re: Obama: No special prosecutor to investigate IRS


If Holder appoints someone to investigate the IRS, do you think they could find anything?
