Rep. Darrel Issa is quoted as saying that in all “likelihood” IRS agents had word from Washington to hold up Tea Party tax exempt applications. He also said that: “My gut tells me that too many people knew this wrongdoing was going on before the election”. So is this whole witch hunt being fueled, not by facts, but Issa’s gut, and in concrete terms like “likelihood”? This sounds like Kenneth Starr all over again. Not to mention the comments that Issa’s has made about the White House Press Secretary being a “paid liar” (Darrel is an expert on lying, just look at his past). We all know that when you resort to personal attacks, you have lost all credibility.
However, what happened at the IRS is very important to the country, and the Issa’s side-show is not helping, PERIOD. Both parties are to blame for the IRS issue, and both need to work together so this won’t happen in the future. There is no doubt that the IRS was over run by applications, and that they were under manned, and funded. But, we all know that funding the IRS is the LAST thing Republicans wants to talk about, seeing how they should have known this backlog would happen in the first place.
