Democrats Complain About The IRS’s Inept Stonewalling

From Reuters:

Congressional Democrats fault U.S. IRS fumbling in ‘Tea Party’ probe

By Kevin Drawbaugh | June 19, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Congressional Democrats are frustrated with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service’s handling of a year-old, Republican-led investigation of the tax agency’s scrutiny of Tea Party-aligned political groups, said a senior Democrat and aides on Thursday…

Democratic Representative Lloyd Doggett said there was no level of responsiveness, in a probe with clear political overtones, that would satisfy Republicans.

At the same time, Democrats said, the IRS made errors that helped perpetuate the damaging inquiry, which leapt back into the headlines last week after the IRS said it had lost emails written by former agency official Lois Lerner.

"I don’t approve of either Lois Lerner or the way IRS has handled this," Doggett told Reuters in an emailed response to questions, adding, "No response will satisfy Republicans so obsessed with finding a conspiracy that they are probably already trying to connect Lois Lerner with Benghazi." …

A House Democratic staffer familiar with the investigation, who asked not to be named, said IRS handling of it has been "forehead-slapping … unforced error after unforced error." …

This is textbook disinformation from our news media. The headline and lead are clearly meant to give the low information readers the impression that Democrats are just as outraged at what the IRS is doing as the Republicans are.

But if you actually read the article you soon discover that only one Democrat is cited by name and an Democrats staffer cited anonymously. And both of them are only angry that the IRS has screwed up their stonewalling.

    Ms “Lowest Learner” is clearly at the bottom of this and she’s had it out with Bullsh*t Barry, saying, “You let me die on this cross and I will skewer you…you either protect me or I’ll tell everyone everything”.

    This….will not bode well for Ms Lowest Learner for she cannot survive politically but is most likely planning on retiring from her cushy activist job in a little while anyhow.

    Therefore, the word has been sent out that “You will protect Ms Lowest Learner at all costs; Don’t care what it takes, if we have to look stupid, we look stupid. We are not going to lose to the republicans because they are evil, misogynistic, homophobes and also because….first black president, or something.”

    Y’know….Nixon was skewered for merely contemplating the use of the IRS to get back at his enemies. It’s not a practical exercise to assume that the left doesn’t understand that actually employing the IRS to do a politician’s knee-breaker tactics is not only illegal but is a clear case of demonstrating that We, The People are up against the communists in a very big way.

    While they try turn the argument into a “did, did not” scenario…they are exposing themselves front, flank and keester.

    “We lost the e-mails”

    “Where did they go?”

    “My dog ate them”

    “But they’re electronic, how is that possible”

    “My dog peed on them and ruined them”

    “I thought you said your dog ATE them?”

    “Well….actually, the computer crashed”

    “Your—computer—crashed—-”

    “Yes”

    “Do you not back up that information?”

    “YOU’RE MEAN!” (stomp, stomp, stomp…….stomp, stomp *slam*)

    Another tantrum, brought to you by the socialists in our government.

    It’s gotten down to the level of low-brow theater. All we need now is potty humor and lots of boobs flailing around. Oh….wait. Never mind.

    I suppose it’s too much to hope that Democrats are worried about 2 and half more years of embarrassments from leaders who only pretend they have 2 year old educations.
