Theory on the Media and the IRS Scandal


Liberals big government has gotten completely out of control.
Check it out:

So we’ll keep a sharp eye on this — and his lack of patience with it and his lack of tolerance — and we’ll see how quickly it is that he finds out exactly what happened, even though we already know what happened. Here’s the thing about this. The media and practically everybody had to be dragged kicking and screaming to this. Don’t forget, now, that it was persistent Tea Party people who were making noise about the unfair requests being made of them.

And, folks, it’s not just money that the IRS is collecting. The IRS is out collecting information on people. I want you to hang with me for the whole program. It’s gonna take a while to unravel all of this. I’m gonna try to use the old Shakespeare bromide, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” I don’t want to take an unnecessary length of time to do it, but there’s a lot to glean here. But if it hadn’t been for Tea Party groups persistently saying, “Hey! Hey! Look at what’s happening to us over here,” we’d never know this.

The Republican Party didn’t get into gear on this. It was Landmark Legal Foundation and some other legal groups that persisted in sending letters to the inspector general and the IRS demanding that this be looked into. This is not something easy. It has not been easy to get to this point. It was like extracting teeth, however you want to characterize it. I don’t want to make the mistake of saying the media is on our side in this.

The media is not on our side. The media’s always gonna be on the side of the Democrats; they’re always gonna be on the side of Obama. Their effort here is to essentially limit the damage to the IRS as much as they can. There are just certain things they know, the media, that the public is not gonna accept no matter how the media treats it. So they get in there and limit the damage as much as possible, because the IRS has to remain functioning and dominant in their world.
