How Obama Told the IRS to Target Conservatives
Imagine if secret tapes surfaced of conversations within his Administration in which President Obama told them:
-that conservative non-profits working in the political arena were illegitimate, because the Supreme Court ruling "reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests."
-spoke of Tea Party supporters using an obscene term referring to a homosexual act, as 'tea baggers.'
- implied his conservative opponents were being funded by foreign interests with these words, "All around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates . . . And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don't know if it's a foreign-controlled corporation."
-showed them his campaign's Truth Team website, posting the names of eight private citizens who donated money to Romney, with these words:
"A closer look at...donors reveals a group of wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records. Quite a few have been on the wrong side of the law, others have made profits at the expense of so many Americans..."
-referred to Republicans as 'enemies' and suggested his followers bring a gun to the fight
-remained silent while V.P. Biden called Tea Party supporters terrorists.
-remained silent while black Congressmen falsely claimed Tea Partiers had spit on them.
-told his Administration: 'We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.'
-told them they'd gotten away with the IRS punishing a citizen called Joe the Plumber who had embarrassed Obama on the campaign trail.
Oh, wait. Obama didn't have to do all that in secret. He did it in plain sight. And the IRS followed his call.
