So Obama lied when he said he found out about the IRS targeting

from the recent news story like everybody else?

With the NY Times revelation today that he knew during the 2012 election campaign, it would seem that O'Sleazy has been caught red-handed.

What happens now?

His supporters, low information voters, don't care.

If I had to guess, nothing. He and Carney will get asked more tough questions, they'll duck, dodge, and obfuscate, then maybe find a way to blame it on Republicans.

I know the drill by now. It's pitiful.

Hard to get any traction on this when the MSM (until recently) are in the administrations pocket and over 50% of the population could care less as long as they get their checks. Nothing will happen and worse, another democrat will be in the WH in 2016.

re: So Obama lied when he said he found out about the IRS targeting
AP- The AP did not harm national security in the timing of the article printed.

IRS-Obama knew

Benghazi-Someone under SOS Clinton ordered stand down of Benghazi- is dereliction of Obama, as they do not have this authority. (Also near page 2 of the CBS article) facts have also come out that Obama was derelict in disengaging completely (and used for another purpose) the team Bush had in place to react to terrorism of this precise nature.

Impeachment hearing. If Obama is found guilty then votes for removal. I am not like others who think this will be painted as a witch hunt successfully. This is about America and enough people pissed off at the IRS political arm that won't pay taxes- not a blow job.

If Joe Biden is not found by those close to him in government to not have dementia, he is our President.

But in reality the worst is Obama impeached and NOT removed from office. ONLY because he is historically the first half black President.

ObamaCare will be repealed and another reasonable health care plan introduced. Obama will not pass his DREAM ACT and get free votes. He will be shut down in his policies. This is the worst punishment for him.

I wish I could share in your optimism, but sadly I don't believe he will even be impeached.

re: So Obama lied when he said he found out about the IRS targeting
is the big revelation from today that they were told that the IG was auditing in response to the allegation, and not that any finding of guilt had been made?

Isn't that a big difference from what is being reported as "they knew"?

I mean, people make allegations all the time. That doesn't mean that they pan out.

I am not saying that they could not have gotten to hte bottom of it before the election. I am taking this a step at a time.

The NY Times does NOT say that Obama knew that.

It's YOU who's lying, and if you had any decency and consistency you'd anchor or delete your own thread.

From the NY Times article:

quote:

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department’s inspector general told senior Treasury officials in June 2012 he was investigating allegations that the Internal Revenue Service had targeted conservative groups, disclosing for the first time on Friday that Obama administration officials were aware of the matter during the presidential campaign year.

Obama said the IRS targeted Conservatives because of a hateful, disgusting video that slandered the prophet Harry Reid.

re: So Obama lied when he said he found out about the IRS targeting
I've already read the story. It doesn't say Obama knew. It says that the Treasury’s general counsel and the Deputy Treasury Secretary were informed. It doesn't say Obama knew, or even that the Secretary of the Treasury knew.

So when are you going to disavow your thread title?

It says Obama officials knew. Are you telling us that you believe his own people would not tell him his IRS is targeting his opponents?

Rex is trying to say that Obama Administration officials don't communicate with Obama during the campaign.

re: So Obama lied when he said he found out about the IRS targeting
I'm not disavowing shite.

Once again, from the NY Times article:

quote:

Obama administration officials were aware of the matter during the presidential campaign year.

Top officials in his administration knew. Whether or not he personally knew, or was offically kept out of the loop so as to give him plausible deniability, he clearly created a climate in his administration where this type of persecution of political enemies was not only allowed, but encouraged. It's obvious no one feared repercussions from Obama.

Turns out this guy is just about everything the tin-foil types have been saying all along.
