There are plenty of juicy targets for investigators in the IRS scrutiny of conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status, but the most dangerous for President Obama is this: Did bureaucrats in Cincinnati create this mess on their own? Or did someone in the White House give the marching orders to target the president's enemies?

=================================================================

** Wow, even after all these years, I don't think I've quite come across an openly, blatantly, overtly Pravda-esque 'You MUST love your Kommissars and your State-Actor betters, regardless of what they do, no matter what!'-verbal raggage, by an American MSM or a MSM-scribe/blogger, until now.

I confess, I never knew the true meaning of ass-kissing, or Stockholm Syndrome so gleefully displayed, until I read the following by Peter Beinart, the former senior editor at The New Republic(an), the home of RP Newsletters smear merchant Jamie Kirchick. (Figures, eh?); yup, not that they ever had any, but apparently they're dropping all pretenses of any legitimacy or journalistic integrity, whatsoever now.

The time is nigh and S must truly be Hitting TF! Bowel-'movement liberals' truly are a genetic aberration:

make private wealth serve public interest

Seriously, how much more openly socialistic can they get? Well, at least they're being truly, truly 'honest' about their aims, now.

=================================================================

** I mean seriously, holy f'ng scheisse:

It might seem shrewd for Obama to sit out the IRS scandal while he focuses on bigger fights. But this scandal is about government’s capacity to make private wealth serve the public interest, and for a progressive president, there’s no bigger fight than that.

Don’t Throw the IRS Under the Bus
The IRS isn’t too powerful, says Peter Beinart. It’s too weak. And Obama must not let Republicans weaken it even more.

by Peter Beinart May 20, 2013 4:45 AM EDT

Since the hullabaloo over IRS investigations of Tea Party groups broke last week, Democratic partisans have mostly been telling President Obama the same thing. First, clear this scandal off your plate so you can focus on the others. Second, the people responsible for this mess, at least according to the Inspector General’s report, were bureaucratic grunts and Bush appointees—you don’t owe them anything. Third, everyone hates tax collectors anyway. In other words, stand aside as congressional Republicans beat the IRS to a pulp.

That would be a terrible mistake.

It would be a mistake because while Obama is not personally implicated in the IRS controversy, the things he believes in most deeply are. Conservatives love the IRS scandal because it supposedly rips the smiley-face mask off government and reveals it to be a “sinister” (Peggy Noonan), “arrogant” (Noonan), “ravaging tyrant” (David Brooks) abusing largely powerless American patriots. As a perennial warning against the abuse of government power, that story has merit. But as a description of the actual relationship between the public and private sector in America today, at least outside the national-security realm, it’s mostly nonsense. And if Obama and his fellow Democrats don’t rebut that narrative and defend the IRS, they’ll be surrendering crucial ground in the battle that has roiled American politics since the financial crisis: the battle over whether Washington regulates too much or too little.

=================================================================

** But apparently, Doyle McManus, a columnist at the 'liberal' LA Times, is singing a different tune, in his latest OpEd:

McManus: Obama's IRS choice
If the administration hopes to avoid a drawn-out investigation, it would do well to be more forthcoming.

By Doyle McManus

Message to the president: Resistance is futile.

There are plenty of juicy targets for investigators in the IRS scrutiny of conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status, but the most dangerous for President Obama is this: Did bureaucrats in Cincinnati create this mess on their own? Or did someone in the White House give the marching orders to target the president's enemies?

The Treasury Department's inspector general asked that latter question of the IRS brass, and they said no — but he didn't demand their emails and phone records.

So Congress is demanding them now. On Monday, Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), the top members on the Senate Finance Committee, asked the IRS for all records of communications with "any and all White House employees — including, but not limited to, the president."

Obama shouldn't merely allow the IRS to cooperate; he should order the IRS to cooperate fully and enthusiastically. Meantime, the White House staff should also begin combing their own records to see if there's anything else they need to fess up. Under the doctrine of executive privilege, internal White House records are normally immune from congressional probing, but it would benefit Obama to be forthcoming.

yeah, I know that nothing surprises me anymore, and shouldn't be

'shocked' by anything that these people do, say or propagandize, but for whatever reason, as for this:

make private wealth serve public interest

it sums it all up, with a nice little bow on top, doesn't it?

I truly don't think, I've ever seen them be that 'open' about their socialistic aims, disposition, purposes, or agenda.

not quite 'shocking'-shocking, but nevertheless, it all still kinda is...

they're really creeping me the F' out lately, even more so than before.

it's just creepy-weird...
