Obama Lies To Jon Stewart’s Face About The IRS

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times:

President Obama defended the IRS Tuesday in an interview with “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, saying the tea party targeting scandal was actually Congress’s fault for passing “a crummy law” and that the real problem is the agency doesn’t have enough money…

The IRS’s internal auditor concluded that the agency did, in fact, target conservative and tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, and Mr. Obama’s own Justice Department is still conducting a criminal investigation into the targeting.

Mr. Obama, though, disputed that version Tuesday, according to the pool reporter traveling with the president…

The president went on to say that the “real scandal around the IRS is that they have been so poorly funded that they cannot go after these folks who are deliberately avoiding tax payments.”

And then Jon Stewart tugged at his collar and made a funny noise, and the crowd went wild.

Obama clearly doesn’t care about anything anymore, if he’s ever really cared about anything other than himself. But is it really fair to saddle the rest of the Democrats with this? Does he really think America can’t get enough of the Internal Revenue Service? Is that the key to electoral victory in 2016?

The Democrats: Old White People Who Will Raise Your Taxes Even Higher and Laugh in Your Face Even Harder

Jon Stewart has made his money. So what if Obama plays him for a chump one last time on his way out? If either of them had any shame, we never would’ve heard of them.
