Sure, the president of the United States called the Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups “intolerable and inexcusable,” but that hasn’t stopped an army of commentators from claiming loudly and proudly that there’s no there there. Just do a Google News search on “so-called scandal,” and here’s part of what comes up:
Elizabeth Drew, New York Review of Books:
References to Watergate, impeachment, even Richard Nixon, are being tossed around these days as if they were analogous to the current so-called scandals.
David Horsey, Los Angeles Times:
Sadly, after this so-called scandal has blown over and enough heads have rolled, the cowed IRS will be even more timid in denying tax-exempt designation to any front organization run by partisan political operatives and funded by corporate moneymen who want to keep their names out of the news.
The fact is, while the GOP obsesses aboutso-called scandal, the pressing issues facing our nation are being ignored.
Nelson Graves, The News Virginian:
Admittedly, errors in judgment were made in regards to the Benghazi and IRS so-called scandals. But the DOJ was completely within its rights to protect American security.
And so on.
But the real party comes when you search on “the real scandal.” So much to choose from!
And the “Spin” begins… didn’t take them long did it????
You know you are over the target when you start taking flack.
Bob Beckel made clear the contemptible hypocrisy of the left when he admitted on live television that if left wing groups had been targetted by the IRS he’d be screaming bloody murder….but since conservatives were the targets he didn’t consider this a scandal.
When leftists don’t care how blatantly hypocritical they know they are being, how can we ever trust them?
THEY are there for only half of AMERICA and they oppress the other half, that’s the OBAMA from the beginning, he had the YOUTH INDOCTRINATED he think he own them now, as he own the UNIONS running the show in the WHITE HOUSE, BRINGING THE WEED AND TAKING THE MONEY,
don’t think they own the other HALF which they demonize from day one,
they separated the UNITED STATES with HATE SPEECH,
their legacy, yes their, because they are many on top,
they won’t like to read their legacy, and they won’t be able to change it either,
HISTORY WILL BE RUTHLESS FOR OBAMA. because his thoughts as minute some are will surface, and accuse him.
Fascism from the fifth column press. 1930’s Germany. 1920 to 1990 Soviet Union.
