that Obama partisans at the IRS avoided fights with prominent and well-funded conservative groups but waged an extended campaign of harassment against conservative community organizers?
Anyone else think it ironic that we were all supposed to believe that this idiot’s main qualification for being president was his history as a “community organizer” when no one could ever point to a single “community” that he “organized”?
The whole thing is sick-making. I haven’t the stomach for any irony. They went after the small fries. Asking about books, signs in yards, even content of prayers. The IRS is apparently staffed by lunatics. Ones with a taste for bureaucratic sadism.
The Dem activists responsible, whose names we do not yet know and perhaps never will–and again let us hope they did not have seats in the WH or the “CREEP”—probably stole the 2012 election with this, given that a) the energy of the groups was wasted with audit-compliance, and most especially b) they got the IRS to deliberately delay admission of the scandal. We’ve learned about this on their timetable, whereas we now see we easily could have learned about it, say, last July.
Moreover, short of mass firings, you’ll know that the same lunatics remain in charge of the institution.
Go to Powerline for links to one of the more infuriating Congressional hearings ever… some evidence presented there suggests coordination with other agencies.

Wait till Obamacare is fully implemented.
We’ve fueled the megalomaniacal rage of a tyrant that will not be satiated.
Such is the history of all Marxist ideological intent.
What’s ironic is that in a media world reflexively snarky about everything, the country’s chief advocate for extending the bureaucratic reach of the federal government on the unfounded premise of greater fairness and accountability claims no responsibility in the matter since apparently the IRS operates under some other authority than the presidency. And no one in this godforsaken media sees the hypocrisy. It’s not entirely clear to me how much more absurd it could be.
Interesting that the IRS’s admission of wrongdoing comes, and the scandal gets media traction, just in time to distract the Republican base’s attention from the oncoming disaster of immigration “reform.” You can bet that Rubio & Co are thrilled to be able to pose as staunch opponents of the administration on the IRS and Benghazi rather than defend the Gang of Eight deal.
For what it’s worth DJF, in light of the recent discovery of systemic malfeasance in the IRS, trying to pass any bill predicated on the good faith discretion of government officials, as the immigration reform bill presently is, will likely be much more difficult to accomplish on the right side of the aisle. And I’m speaking as someone who has been generally sympathetic with Rubio’s efforts.
Hope you’re right, Pseudo. Incidentally, as even the mainstream conservative National Review is reporting it, Rubio’s “efforts” on immigration ended up amounting to caving in to the Democrats on everything of substance.
