One after the other, Obama’s IRS officials step up and do what government bureaucrats do best: they spin, they obfuscate, they lie, and they cover their rear-ends. We have been treated to the reality of big government: a mob of lawless bureaucrats drunk on their own power. These men and women, career government pencil pushers, are political hacks who do Obama’s bidding.
And they did it with the greatest vigor during Obama’s reelection campaign.
Of course, Obama doesn’t pick up a phone, call Lois Lerner—try taking the 5th when dealing with the IRS!—and instruct her to kneecap the political opposition. No, that call is probably made by Valerie Jarrett through her underlings.
Obama and his political thugs have learned from Nixon’s mistakes.
