What a hoot! BO comes out and makes the stern and angry announcement that Miller is gone from the IRS. Then we find out his time at the IRS is over in June anyway. Sooooo, phony, fakester BO came out yesterday to make a huge announcement that really has no effect on Miller or the IRS. Don’t you think he knows the “acting head of the IRS” will be leaving his post in June? So the melodrama of Preezy and his “heads will roll” statement is so much smoke and mirrors.
“The misconduct that it uncovered is inexcusable. It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it and I am angry about it,” the president said in a brief prepared statement. “I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency—but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives.”
Obama said the “responsible parties” will be held accountable. Lew “took the first step by requesting—and accepting—the resignation of the acting commissioner of the IRS because given the controversy surrounding this audit, it’s important to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward,” Obama added.
See how easy that was? But, now there is this.…..a symbolic resignation.
The president’s big statement today was a big nothing as far as accountability goes. The only head that has rolled was already scheduled to roll even if the scandal had never come up. It now looks like Obama came out with that statement for two reasons: To look like he was doing something useful, and to bully Republicans not to aggressively pursue the scandal
Since BO has done his best to create an atmosphere of hatred for conservatives, why is he so surprised and angry? What is really inexcusable is how much damage has been done by this Preezy, which will impact the US for years to come.
MO went on a book signing May 7th. It was “closed to the press”. I now see why…..and just look at the shiny. She urged patrons to buy ‘her’ book for Mother’s Day, the one she didn’t write along with photos she didn’t take. But, like BO, it is all about her.
