Here’s a helpful timeline of administration knowledge of the IRS program:

1. “High level” IRS managers informed of audit in 2011. (Note: A separate timeline of IRS actions in response to finding out about the targeting program reveals that several higher-ups were aware of the political targeting and were seeking to change the criteria to a more neutral determination as early as August of 2011.)

2. Treasury Department general counsel informed on June 4, 2012, of the IG audit of the IRS.

3. Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin, a political appointee, informed “shortly after” general counsel told.

4. Treasury officials told of the “results” of the audit in March of 2013. At around the same time, Secretary Lew claims he knew of the audit but was not told any details by the IG.

5. White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler informed of the IG’s audit on April 22.

6. President Obama, Jack Lew, and anyone else who would get in trouble if it is revealed they knew about the targeting program earlier find out with the rest of us about the IRS scandal on May 10.

The list of people who knew months ago of the IRS targeting program and yet somehow forgot to tell their boss, the president of the United States, about it is growing longer.

And so is the witness list for House hearings on the matter.

Obama fundamentally transforms America:

There was a time when the IRS acted against Al Capone. Now, under Obama, the IRS acts like Al Capone.

There was a time when the FBI investigated crime syndicates. Now, under Obama, the FBI investigates for a crime syndicate.

There was a time when the ATF stopped Gun Running Gangs. Now, under Obama, the ATF is a Gun Running Gang.

There was a time when the TSA protected women at airports. Now, under Obama, the TSA molests women at airports.

There was a time when people in India dreamed of coming to America to get Health Care. Soon now, under Obama, people in America will dream of going to India to get Health Care.

Lying liars and the lies they lie. Nero-Obama plays his fiddle and laughs while the democrat quislings scurry about.

Well life in the House is kinda laid back
Ain't nothing an old liberal like me can't hack
Early to lie, media got my back
Thank God I'm a Liberal

Trying to preserve his increasingly implausible "plausible deniability."

Which is of course a calculated lie originated by political operatives hoping they could shield the guy at the top of the food chain from the very same responsibility he spent years of his life and millions of other people's dollars seeking.

It's really too late for Obama to "come clean" if he indeed knew anything.

Perhaps the real scandal is that it is entirely possible he didn't. He went about the country accusing Tea Party people and conservatives of all sorts of shady dealings, Democrats including Senators pressured IRS to investigate conservative groups for violations, and most IRS agents are part of a union closely aligned with the Democratic Party. The Boss says it publicly, does he need to send you a memo.

It's what Chris Matthews calls a "dog whistle."

Obama is not doing himself any favors by lying about his knowledge of the IRS scandal. Either he is a coward who wants to blame others for his misdeeds, or he is so stupid and incompetent that he can't control his own minions. Either way it looks bad in the eyes of the public, very bad.

Very startling article from a rather leftist blog but he almost sounds conservative. Worth a read:

Of course Obama didn't know anything about this scandal - in mid April the NBA playoffs were about to get underway - he HAD to adjust his schedule to fit the TV schedule - then there was those next 5 golf outings that require rigorous planning - then there is the summer vacation he and his Belle Mechelle are trying to decide on where to go. The man obviously has a lot on his plate. Give him a break!

Didn't he have to fit the Memphis soul concert in there, too, you know, the one with Al Green?

The election was stolen from Romney by the Obama-run IRS. Obama and his minions started the harassment in 2010, with full knowledge of the Prez.

Of course, that is what some historian will write in a book in about 50 years, after all these dudes are long gone.

It not so much that the brat isn't in the know; rather it's that he has informed all his Marxist czars that he doesn't want to know. That way he has plausible deniability. Yep, the most ineffective, lead from behind clown to hit spin city east since ever.

Nobody tells Obambus nothing but his tee times.

But that doesn't matter right now, having the IRS interfere with political opponents is one of the icons of American political life. You should fire everybody involved if they knew about it, of course. You should also fire everybody involved if they DIDN'T know about it, because they SHOULD have known about it. If it takes place, it blows up the entire regime. Or should, if we were healthy, wise, or just lucky.

And the Old Media keeps saying, "well, Nixon did it too." But Nixon had enough sense, class and self-esteem to step down, rather than continue to tarnish the office of the presidency with more lies that every American who is paying attention can see right through.
