Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
- Disraeli, English Statesman and Author (1804-1881)
Exactly 40 years from when the senate hearings brought the Watergate scandal to the forefront of the national consciousness, Barack Obama finds his administration now being exposed for the widespread abuses they’ve engaged in over their own four-and-a-half years in power.
The similarities between the two administrations are striking. Consider this quote from the Watergate tapes where Nixon discusses the kind of IRS commissioner was looking for:
I want to be sure that he is a ruthless son of a bitch, that he will do what he is told, that every income tax return I want to see, I see.
Now that we know the IRS engaged in a widespread campaign of targeting innocent Americans for their political beliefs, now that we know this president, in just one term, met with his IRS commissioner more than every other president combined, you’d have to be straight-up plum crazy to imagine that Obama wasn’t the orchestrator of the IRS gestapo techniques.
Well guess what? Those plum-crazy obama lovers really do exist! While 76% of Americans want a special investigator to look into the IRS abuse of power and 7% of Americans are so clueless they can’t even give a response other than “I don’t know”, fully 17% of Americans are so far gone with their Obama as Messiah worship, they don’t think a special investigator is needed and they’re honestly are trying very hard to spin those 157 visits:
it’s important to know why Shulman was at the WH. My guess is it had a lot to do withthe implementation of Obamacare, and nothing whatsoever to do with the Obama-hating right’s delusional fantasy of a “IT’S WORSE THAN WATERGATE!!!!!!!!!” conspiracy.
First, that’s a frightening thought to imagine that the enforcement and punishment of Americans who dare not purchase government mandated health insurance is going to take 157 visits to sort out, but sorry, without having HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in attendance, these discussions were not about the implementation of Obamacare. Nice try, but Sebelius was there at the White House less than 50 times.
Other Obamabots might suggest it was about routine revenue issues, perhaps he was there to talk about Treasury issues and deficit reduction . . . Sorry, but those are meetings that would surely require Geithner to be involved in as well and the tax cheat that runs the Treasury visited even less than Sebelius.
There is only one logical conclusion that can be drawn from an unprecedented 157 visits and all the evil and abusive tactics the IRS used to trample dissent in America – Barack Obama was both the architect and orchestrator of this assault on the core of American democracy.
Barack Obama’s agents in the media will do everything they can to ignore the evidence and bury their master’s role in the IRS abuses. It’s up to you and me then to ride these lame mules of the mainstream media and beat them into moving forward with the story. Stop playing the role of Obama State Media and do the job you’re supposed to do as investigative journalists and give these scandals the very same coverage they deserved when Nixon was president.
