Report on IRS screening of nonprofit applications

You can find it here. Unfortunately, this is not that big of a scandal — not really a scandal.

Here are some other facts. Of the 300 targeted groups, 75 were Tea Party. Not, Party, as in Political Party. Others were Democrats. If you look at the process, I have to agree with Scott Hodge of the non-partisan Tax Foundation when he said, speaking yesterday on Morning Briefing, that there is no crime, but at the most, some boundaries may have been stretched. Further, there is no connection established to the White House, unlike the last President. The problem is, is that we do profile expected problems. Duh.

Now, the Justice Department will investigate… unlike last President.

If you actually believe this is a scnadal, I pity you. The real scandal is how much you are ready to see this President fall.

Good luck, America.

  1. President Obama just made these comments regarding the IRS situation…

    “It’s inexcusable and Americans are right to be angry about it and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but particularly the IRS given the power that it has and the reach that it has in all of our lives.”

    I guess we should be glad that Barack Obama is president and Joel Watts is not. Do you now pity the president, Joel, for him believing that this is a scandal?

    • I pity him because he doesn’t have the courage to see this through to the end, to see if anything is actually wrong here.
