You know what I love about our president? Well, nothing, really. But do you know what entertains me about him? He can lie with a straight face and have absolutely no concern that what he says can be proven as a falsehood. He just doesn’t care because he’s a lame duck. Come to think of it, he didn’t really care much during his first term, either, because he knew that everyone who wants stuff for free without having to work for it would vote for him. And, he was right.
A few years ago, the Internal Revenue Service was accused of targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny when it came to their applications for tax-exempt status. IRS officials denied it and lied about it for as long as they could until the evidence proved overwhelming. Then they apologized for it.
But after the Obama-controlled FBI declared there was no evidence that the IRS was guilty of this, he went on national television on Super Bowl Sunday and declared that there was “not a smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS. By that time, he had gotten so good at lying that he probably believed it himself.
So, what’s happening now, a couple years later? Well, a report from an IRS watchdog group says that the agency has taken “significant actions” to stop its agents from targeting political groups based on their names and policy positions. The IRS inspector general says that the agency has eliminated unnecessary and intrusive questions and has cleared a backlog of applications that had languished for months and years.
Why would an agency like the IRS apologize for something it didn’t do in the first place? And why would it now take measures to correct bad behavior that didn’t occur in the first place? And why would Obama deny a wrongdoing by a group that had already admitted what it did was wrong? I’m afraid I have to stop writing now. All the lies and illogical statements are giving me a headache.
