I haven’t posted for a while, but this is an attack on my home. There is an angle on this that I have not seen anyone else focus on. The initial position of the IRS on why they targeted the Tea Party was that they were responding to media reports complaining about Tea Party activities. I found this on Hot Air:
The key quote is in the middle of all the redacted area:
“According to media reports, some organizations were classified as I.R.C. § 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations but operated like political organizations.”
According to the initial defense raised by the IRS, they were only responding to media reports critical of Tea Party activities. Well, I sleep better at night knowing that the selection criteria for IRS attention is based on the media’s opinion. Come off it! The MSM hates the Tea Party, of course there are articles critical of their activities. It is so typical of this administration to blame Republicans for everything. In this case, their position is that the Republican base of the Tea Party brought this upon themselves by being politically active.
This scandal will continue to expand. If this was the best they could do for a starting defense, can you imagine how bad the truth really is?
