Apparently Wall Street Journal Opinion writer, Glenn Harlan Reynolds likes to paint himself in bright neon colors and then run around Time Square bare ass naked with a sing on his back proclaiming himself a clueless imbecile. Well, that or he is doing true yeoman’s work trying to deceive the general public regarding the egregious mendacious nature of the Obamanation Administration.
Barack Obama owes his presidency in no small part to the power of rhetoric. It’s too bad he doesn’t appreciate the damage that loose talk can do to America’s tax system, even as exploding federal deficits make revenues more important than ever.
At his Arizona State University commencement speech last Wednesday, Mr. Obama noted that ASU had refused to grant him an honorary degree, citing his lack of experience, and the controversy this had caused. He then demonstrated ASU’s point by remarking, “I really thought this was much ado about nothing, but I do think we all learned an important lesson. I learned never again to pick another team over the Sun Devils in my NCAA brackets. . . . President [Michael] Crowe and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS.”
Just a joke about the power of the presidency. Made by Jay Leno it might have been funny. But as told by Mr. Obama, the actual president of the United States, it’s hard to see the humor. Surely he’s aware that other presidents, most notably Richard Nixon, have abused the power of the Internal Revenue Service to harass their political opponents. But that abuse generated a powerful backlash and with good reason. Should the IRS come to be seen as just a bunch of enforcers for whoever is in political power, the result would be an enormous loss of legitimacy for the tax system.
NEWS FLASH Glenn, that horse as already bolted from the barn and the damned barn burned to the ground. Obama turned the IRS on Conservative and TEA Party political groups in 2011 and EVERYBODY knows it. Yes, Obama claimed that he didn’t and that there is no corruption in the IRS.
Barack Insane Obama is up to his old tricks again. “If you like your Health Insurance, you can keep your Health insurance, period.” Remember that line? Over the last couple of years folks who have endured the bullshit coming out of Jay Carney’s piehole have taken to comparing Jay to Saddam Insane Hussein’s official spokeshole, Baghdad Bob. Baghdad Bob of course gained his most notorious moment during 2003 invasion of Iraq when he assured the Iraqi people and the rest of the entire world, that American forces had not entered Baghdad, as an American Abrams Tank rolled behind him in the street. Now however, Jay Carney may have at last caught a long awaited needed break.
Obama on IRS Scandal: “Not Even A Smidgen Of Corruption”
BILL O’REILLY: Okay. So you don’t recall seeing [Douglas] Shulman, because what some people are saying is that the IRS was used at a local level in Cincinnati, maybe other places to go after –
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Absolutely wrong.
O’REILLY: How do you know that because we still don’t know what happened?
OBAMA: Bill, we do — that’s not what happened. Folks have again had multiple hearings on this. These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them. But –
O’REILLY: But aren’t there some unanswered questions?
OBAMA: Bill, when you look at the stuff, there have been multiple hearings on it. What happened here was that you’ve got a 501(c)4 law people think is confusing. The folks did not know how to implement because it basically says –
O’REILLY: So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all.
OBAMA: That’s not what I’m saying.
O’REILLY: I want to know what you’re saying. You’re the leader of the country.
O’REILLY: You’re saying no corruption, none?
OBAMA: There was some bone-headed decisions.
O’REILLY: Bone-headed decisions. But no mass corruption?
OBAMA: Not even mass corruption. Not even a smidgeon of corruption.
Obama had nothing to do with the disappearance of the chickens; Signed Obama’s Mother.
Obama is also reputed to have told Bill O’Reilly, that, “Absolutely not, not one single person has lost their Health Insurance as a consequence of the Affordable HealthCare Act, If you like your Health Insurance you really can keep it”…
Anyone who is stupid enough to believe Obama’s assertions should be studied by science to figure out how an individual without a single functional brain cell is able to function in society.
