What Team Obama thinks of us

This isn’t the fox guarding the henhouse. This is the fox walking into the henhouse with a chainsaw and locking the door behind him.

From The Washington Times:

The Justice Department selected an avowed political supporter of President Obama to lead the criminal probe into the IRS targeting of tea party groups, according to top Republicans who said Wednesday that the move has ruined the entire investigation.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, and regulatory affairs subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, said they have discovered that the head of the investigation is Barbara Kay Bosserman, a trial lawyer in the Justice Department who donated more than $6,000 to Mr. Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, as well as several hundred dollars to the national Democratic Party.

“The department has created a startling conflict of interest,” Mr. Issa and Mr. Jordan said in a letter sent Wednesday and reviewed by The Washington Times. “It is unbelievable that the department would choose such an individual to examine the federal government’s systematic targeting and harassment of organizations opposed to the president’s policies.”

That’s unfair of Mr. Issa; I’m sure Ms. Bosserman will get the bottom of this scandal and identify the real culprit — the Tea Party. And Sarah Palin, too, gosh darn her!

Meanwhile, the networks are focusing like a laser on a true national outrage: traffic jams in New Jersey.

    I don’t know how much more baffled, disgusted, angry I can possibly be that all this insanity is happening. All these people do is play games at the taxpayers expense, lie and twist.

    I’m from NJ and if all they can come up with is “Damn this traffic jam” …. and people are buying it.. then Lord help us! The stupidity is multiplying..

    The DOJ shell game is that they cannot keep Ms. Bosserman off the case simply because of her politics. That judicious attitude did not seem to matter until they got caught going on a blood scent after conservatives.

    Keep in mind these IRS shenanigans are stunts they have admitted to committing.

    At this point they don’t give a damn.
    They know that no one will do anything about it.
    And with the media in pocket, why should they care?

    Yep. Just like the guy who gets a broken nose in a fight, he wouldn’t have gotten it if he hadn’t gotten his face in the way of that fist.

    Democraps just can’t understand why TEA partiers are willing to continue on even though they know they will probably be audited.

    But then, Democraps can’t understand or live by anything except situational ethics, either.

    A question I have, though, is, what’s gonna happen to all that silence from the LSM/COAM when a Republican president starts using government agencies (including, but not limited to, the IRS AND the DOJ) to target his enemies? Heck, not even Nixon was stupid enough or criminal enough to start that slippery slope. Apparently Obama is both.
