Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

President Obama vowed Monday to hold the Internal Revenue Service accountable if reports of political targeting are proved true.
"If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous. And there's no place for it," Obama told reporters.
"And they have to be held fully accountable. Because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they're ... applying the laws in a nonpartisan way."
Obama said he learned of the allegations through news reports on Friday.
The IRS also applied extra scrutiny to applicants with statements that "criticize how the country is run" or that sought to educate the public on how to "make America a better place to live," designations that would have included conservative political groups looking to apply for 501(c)(4) status.
Those disclosures are included in the appendix of an inspector general's report, obtained by CNN, that has caused widespread anger among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle as well as conservative groups.
Doesn't Obama realize they already admitted it was true which is why they issued the apology?

OVER her 22 years in Congress, Maxine Waters has likened bank executives to “gangsters,” snarkily addressed them as “captains of the universe” and threatened to tax their companies “out of business.”

The Democrat from Los Angeles, in other words, is not known for showing love to the financial industry.

So in March, when she visited a group of community bankers in a conservative corner of her district, she seemed ready for a chilly reception.“Let’s see what these guys have to say for themselves,” Ms. Waters said with a smirk as she emerged from her S.U.V.

Escorted to a private conference room at Malaga Bank, Ms. Waters grabbed a seat at the head of the table. A dozen or so bankers shuffled in, each armed with a tale of woe about the Dodd-Frank banking overhaul passed by Congress in the aftermath of the financial crisis.

The law is too tough, they groaned. Its capital requirements are too steep. One banker’s voice quivered as she described a regulatory examination of her bank. Another griped about regulators overstepping their bounds:“They can tell you how many pens and pencils we have in our drawers!”

In the past, such grumbling might have set off Ms. Waters’s famous hair-trigger temper. But with each complaint, she leaned in for more, nodding appreciatively.“We’ve heard they chase down silly stuff,” Ms. Waters said, referring to regulators and shaking her head in disapproval.“I’m willing to take a hit” to help lower the capital requirements, she said. She even suggested the bankers hire new lobbyists to better represent them.“Influence us,” Ms. Waters said softly, reminding them of her new role as the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee.“Help us understand the intricacies of your business.”

This was not “kerosene Maxine,” the nickname Ms. Waters has earned for her tendency to hurl flammable remarks.(Exhibit A: She once screamed onstage in Los Angeles that “The Tea Party can go straight to hell, and I intend to help them get there.”) Rather, she was all empathy, vowing to use her new sway in Washington to protect the bankers’ interests.“You have a lot of good will right now,” she said. As for Dodd-Frank, Ms. Waters said she stood ready to defend the law, but also instructed the bankers to compile a “laundry list” of their concerns.“I don’t want you to look at this as being impossible to tweak,” she said.

After an hour of swiveling nervously in their chairs, the bankers broke into grins. One executive slapped Ms. Waters a high-five. Another embraced her.

“You’ve softened,” Paul C. Hudson, the chairman of Broadway Federal Bank, teased Ms. Waters.“I love the new Maxine.”

The New Maxine was born in part from Ms. Waters’s ascension, in January, on the House Financial Services Committee. Exonerated in September at the end of a three-year ethics investigation, she replaced Barney Frank, Democrat of Massachusetts, for whom the banking overhaul bill was named.

The Obama administration has already blamed prejudicial tax enforcement on "low-level employees."
Lois Lerner (I'm not good at math") will resign to pursue other opportunities.
Bush will be blamed.
She's not a low level auditor azzhole but an attorney and more familiar with verbiage than numbriage.

Wesley Snipes__remember him?

His conviction and incarceration came as the result of an IRS targeted probe of "constitutional" groups known as sovereign citizens. Snipes was not a subscriber to that concept but his tax people were__the tax people hired by his accountant.

The tax people were: The American Rights Litigators of Mt Dora Florida and consisted of Eddie Ray Kahn, Douglas Rosile and David Lokietz who turn states evidence in order to spare himself.

Eddie Ray Kahn is worth a google search__trust me.

If Snipe's tax returns had been mailed from Orange County Florida rather than Lake County, he would never have been prosecuted much less convicted.

If this doesn’t ignite the Liberal Media to probe deeper: President Obama only took one combined question on the two scandals plaguing his administration — his administration’s reaction to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi and the IRS’s intimidation of conservative groups during the election season!! Obama answer it’s a ‘Sideshow’ no Mr. President you and your administration is a ‘Sideshow!”

Sen. Marco Rubio is calling for the resignation of current IRS acting commissioner Steven Miller, who previously served as Shulman’s deputy.

"It is clear the IRS cannot operate with even a shred of the American people's confidence under the current leadership...No government agency that has behaved in such a manner can possibly instill any faith and respect from the American public."

Democrat Senate Finance Committee Chairman, Max Baucus, called the targeting "intolerable" and an "outrageous abuse of power."

"Americans expect the IRS to do its job without passion or prejudice," he said in a statement. "We need to get to the bottom of what happened here."

"He was Deputy IRS Commissioner when all this occurred," 
The current acting commissioner is Steven T. Miller -- a permanent replacement has not been nominated.

In response to TPM's query, Rubio's spokesman Alex Conant noted that Miller was deputy commissioner when the targeting took place. He did not suggest the IRS acted inappropriately under Miller's watch as acting commissioner.

Having sex with a subordinate in the workplace is sexual harassment, resulting in immediate dismissal.
Get a job sometime, try it, and find out.
Most liberals don't consider it sexual harrassment in the workplace if it's a Democratic president and a young subordinate.

It then becomes "It's his personal sex life and his own business!"

It doesn't even matter if his personal sex life happens in the Oval Office on our time.

The IRS would not have targeted political organizations without direction from political operatives in the White House, under the direct control of Barack Hussein Obama.
Your flaky assumption, but almost impossible to have happened because of the insularity of different bureaucratic departments within the very large American government bureaucracy. The IRS acted more swiftly to find tax irregularities by ACORN that got them banned by Congress from receiving funding in 2009.

WHEN OBAMA HAS FINISHED SETTING UP BLACKS IN AMERICA HE WILL BE GONE AND PROTECTED new face of domestic terror will be El Rukn.[2][6] Law enforcement speculated the conversion's motive was to take advantage of restrictions on law enforcement surveillance over religious organizations.

During the 1970s, the gang trafficked in cocaine and heroin. In 1983, Fort was convicted of drug trafficking charges and sentenced to 13 years in prison. He was sent to the Federal Correctional Institution at Bastrop, Texas. Fort continued to lead El Rukn through daily telephone calls from prison. He ordered members of El Rukn to meet with Libyan officials. The gang agreed to commit terrorist acts in the U.S. in exchange for US$2.5 million.[10][11]

In 1987, Fort was tried and convicted for conspiring with Libya to perform acts of domestic terrorism by use of COINTELPRO type methods. He was sentenced to 80 years imprisonment and transferred to the USP Marion, the federal supermax prison in Marion, Illinois.[5][11][12] In 1988, Fort was also convicted of ordering the 1981 murder of a rival gang leader and was sentenced to 75 years in prison to be served after the completion of his
