It has now been 10 days.  Our resident Obama defender and liberal apologist, who by the way gets upset when people don't respond to his threads within 72 hours, is nowhere to be seen in this particular thread.

This too will pass and I seriously doubt the Obama Administration will suffer any real consequences for these actions.  It will set a precedent that basically says that so long as you have underlings to blame, you have nothing to worry about.  Many on the left will remain silent.  Until of course a right winger gets elected.  What if that right winger decides to use the IRS to target his or her opponents?  Will they give a damn then?  You bet.

Obama is worse than Nixon.  But the American people don't care about holding their reps accountable as they did back in '73.  It's 2013 baby, and Dancing with the Stars is on.  Let's care when it is fashionable to care, and not one moment before.

Here's a nominee for satire article of the year:

In a last minute press conference Wednesday evening, President Obama announced that the entire nation has been run by a, “secret society of low level government employees” for the past few years. Janitors, secretaries, and even unpaid high school interns make up just some of the known members of this clandestine group. While little is currently known about the group, the White House has confirmed that they have been responsible for all of the Obama administration’s recent scandals, and possibly many future scandals as well. 

President Obama noted that he and his administration only found out about the group, “a few days ago”, when they saw the story posted on the White House’s website ” just like everyone else”. The President claimed that he and those in his administration were simply, “too high up to have any real control over the IRS and actions in Benghazi” and then went on to say, “my administration and I are simply too disconnected from the inner workings of the US government to be aware of such things”. Noting, that he and his Administration, “can’t be expected to know every high level action taken by the Obama administration”. Credulously adding, “do you have any idea how far away my office is from the IRS, or the city of Benghazi, for that matter?”.

When asked about how such scandals could take place under the Obama administration’s watch, Attorney General explained, “we like to roll out of the offices at around two or three pm. This left our offices totally open to the ravages of these low level employees. They had everything from the keys to the wifi passwords, they could have done anything”.

He has the ineptitude of Jimmy Carter, the ethics of Lyndon Johnson, the morals of Barney Frank, the originality of Joe Biden, the foresight of Neville Chamberlain, the loyalty of Arlen Specter, the patriotism of Saul Alinsky, the honesty of Jon Lovitz, the compassion of Marie Antoinette, the problem-solving skills of Willy Gilligan, the mercy of  Genghis Khan, and the national destructiveness of Nero.

God, protect us from Mr. Obama and let us never make such a mistake again!

Yes.  "Very seriously" indeed.

Did anybody in the IRS ever get busted for leaking "Joe the Plumber"'s financial details?

Thanks Pi. I had made the mistake of watching the Star Trek one but not the Gilligan's Island one. Those just creep me out - even before you consider that they were made with our money.

In case anyone is confused about motive...

http://www.aei.org/article/economics/yes-irs-harassment-blunted-the-tea-party-ground-game/
In a new research paper, Andreas Madestam (from Stockholm University), Daniel Shoag and David Yanagizawa-Drott (both from the Harvard Kennedy School), and I set out to find out how much impact the Tea Party had on voter turnout in the 2010 election. We compared areas with high levels of Tea Party activity to otherwise similar areas with low levels of Tea Party activity, using data from the Census Bureau, the FEC, news reports, and a variety of other sources. We found that the effect was huge: the movement brought the Republican Party some 3 million-6 million additional votes in House races. That is an astonishing boost, given that all Republican House candidates combined received fewer than 45 million votes. It demonstrates conclusively how important the party's newly energized base was to its landslide victory in those elections, and how worried Democratic strategists must have been about the conservative movement's momentum.

The Tea Party movement's huge success was not the result of a few days of work by an elected official or two, but involved activists all over the country who spent the year and a half leading up to the midterm elections volunteering, organizing, donating, and rallying. Much of these grassroots activities were centered around 501(c)4s, which according to our research were an important component of the Tea Party movement and its rise.

President Obama's margin of victory in some of the key swing states was fairly small: a mere 75,000 votes separated the two contenders in Florida, for example. That is less than 25% of our estimate of what the Tea Party's impact in Florida was in 2010. Looking forward to 2012 in 2010 undermining the Tea Party's efforts there must have seemed quite appealing indeed.

The bottom line is that the Tea Party movement, when properly activated, can generate a huge number of votes-more votes in 2010, in fact, than the vote advantage Obama held over Romney in 2012. The data show that had the Tea Party groups continued to grow at the pace seen in 2009 and 2010, and had their effect on the 2012 vote been similar to that seen in 2010, they would have brought the Republican Party as many as 5 - 8.5 million votes compared to Obama's victory margin of 5 million.The bottom line is that the Tea Party movement, when properly activated, can generate a huge number of votes-more votes in 2010, in fact, than the vote advantage Obama held over Romney in 2012.

Hmmm......not sure why they were asking, but I got a call from someone at the IRS asking how long my company (a large telephone company that provides Internet access over DSL) retains subscriber connection information.  We do that for troubleshooting reasons and law enforcement support reasons.

The only legitimate reason I can come up with why the IRS would want this info is if someone filed a fraudulent tax return, perhaps as an identity theft issue.

We need a subpoena or warrant to release that information to anyone outside the company.  They don't get the info just demanding it.
