  •  IRS fake scandal (0+ / 0-)

    What kind of political staff does Obama have at the White House anyway? Are they incompetent? How could they have avoided spotlighting the fact that the IRS Commissioner in charge at the time of the so called "outrages" was a Bush appointee? For example, the President could have announced that he has ordered the Justice Dept to interview the former commissioner to find out what he knew about policies in place at the time. It would be a subtle way to insure that most of the media would have to mention his name and that he was appointed by Bush. Instead, he asked for the resignation of a hapless Acting Commissioner that he appointed, who apparently arrived on the scene after all this happened. Is this political malpractice? It's really hard to understand.
