    Republicans Now Admit: IRS “Scandal” Was Fake


    Sen. Roy Blount (stooooopid-MO) admits that the claim that President Obama was using the IRS to target his political enemies are without merits.

    In fact, recently revealed documents from the agency showed that along with “tea party,” groups with names like “occupy” were also scrutinized by the IRS when they applied for tax exempt, non-profit status.

    Fox "News" and other "conservative" outlets have tried to connect the IRS bungling to a concerted, malicious campaign by the Obama White House. Some conservatives have even claimed that the IRS activity could provide grounds to impeach Obama, less than a year after he was re-elected to a second term.

    Rep. Charles Boustany Jr. (stooooopid-LA) told the paper that despite the loud claims of outrage, the right and Republicans “haven’t proved political motivation” behind the activities.

      • Nothing was bungled except the last two prez elections. The electorate swallowed the huge lie of Obama hook, line and sinker. Couple that with a stupid leadership in thebRepublican Party and you get America falling apart domestically and being humiliated in foreign affairs. Obama may cause the downfall of America all by himself...Mr. Bungle, himself!

      • Former Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Doug Shulman visited the White House 118 times between 2010 and 2011. Acting Director Steven Miller, who took over at the IRS in November, also made numerous visits to the White House, though variations in the spelling of his name in White House visitor logs makes it difficult to determine exactly how many times

    • Yup. 294 "Tea Party" and "conservative" groups and 6 liberal groups. That's pretty balanced. It only took the IRS a month to come up with those 6 "non-conservative" groups after they issued the list of conservative groups. And BHO's brother is law, he got his tax exemption in record time. None of the "occupy" groups have come forward with documented evidence of audit after audit, as many of the conservative groups have---because those groups were ephemeral in the first place. How does Ray Blount whom you seem to call "stupid" know what the IRS did or did not do when they, the IRS, has already admitted what they did? Less importantly, why are you using people both of whom you are calling stupid to support your claim?
