Carney on IRS: We Cannot 'Say Something Concretely Happened That Was Inappropriate'
breitbart.com/Big-Government ^ | 5-14-2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/14/2013 12:34:54 PM PDT by servo1969

An AP reporter asked, “The president did use the word 'if these activities had taken place,' but there has been an acknowledgement on the part of the IRS leadership that these things did indeed occur. I wondered why the president used that phrasing in claiming that it was outrageous?"

Carney’s response: “Those from the IRS that have spoken about this obviously have much greater insight into what took place than we do. We have not seen the report. We have not independently collected information about what transpired. We need the independent inspector general's report to be released before we can make judgments. One person's view of what actions were taken or what that individual did is not enough for us to say something concretely happened that was inappropriate.”

In other words, the IRS’ apology may have been wrongheaded. Carney is apparently unaware of the first rule of holes: stop digging.

This is AFTER Lois Lerner's apology.

These people lie and then dare anyone to do anything about it.

How about it, GOP? Are you tired of being Obama's b***** yet?

Imagine all these jokers making these kind of statements in a tightly-run court of law?

They do not believe what they did was wrong, you must understand they are right and the rest of us are stupid dregs that need to be herded up like cattle and sent to the slaughter.

George Will said it nicely in a recent column:

"...using the salad fork for the entree is inappropriate. Using the Internal Revenue Service for political purposes is a criminal offense."

"One person's view of what actions were taken or what that individual did is not enough for us to say something concretely happened that was inappropriate.”

They don't have that problem when the person speaking is Hillary Clinton.

“Those from the IRS that have spoken about this obviously have much greater insight into what took place than we do.

So he's saying there are two administrations - the boy and his staff are totally clueless in what 'the other' is doing. Obviously, the liar reached the end of his rope.

And the more they spin it, the messier it gets for them.

What, you mean the people that sat on their asses for 5 years and let him get away with all that he has without even a campaign commercial against him?

THAT GOP?

They are and were never his bitch. They are willing partners in his enterprise. History does not lie. Though plenty of Freepers seem to lie about and for them.

Politico is reporting Jews seeking a 501c4 were referred to the Cincinnati IRS office “Touch and Go Group.”

Bare in mind, Pelosi supports Israel’s right to exist, presumably she’s the gold standard of liberalism and progressivism -BUT SHE NOT A JEW!

Imagine the few dwindling WW2 vets out there, possibly having liberated Dochow.

Oops, my apologies, we are in agreement with the sentiment.

I saw the wrong word in the asterisks.

Yes, the GOP is equally to blame for Hussein’s success against America.

It all sounds like the same nonsense to me....

I hope they man the hell up and do their jobs, but the truth is and the facts show, that at any time since 2010, the Bhoner Brigade could have stopped him cold. Every time he exceeded authority they could have defunded his ability to carry out his agenda. Every time they had him dead to rights, they sent out cover fire to excuse him and ‘work together for the American People”.

I wish more people would see that. But when half of FR refuses to entertain the idea, much less accept it, there is little chance the general public ever will.

As I will find myself saying more and more, "Good Lord. Do these people stop for ONE ****ING SECOND to listen to themselves, just to check if they sound totally bat-s**t crazy???!?"

My favorite of the day was the claim that the IRS actions were not politically motivated...

Yeah, we have absolutely no idea who did what, but whatever was done by whomever was certainly not politically motivated.

If only Muslims hated the IRS as much as we do they might garner some support.
