That is who Obama should have selected to run the treasury R. Reich is very well known economist and an honest person. Not Lew who was associated with banks in his career.I believe in Robert Reich what he says.
Well it's looking like this will fizzle out. Coming home from the Dr., I was listening to Congressional testimony. 1. The current IRS commissioner was appointed by GW Bush. So that nixes the idea this originated with Obama.
2. The previous IRS Commissioner Shulman was also appointed by Bush. So this breaks the idea of a "liberal conspiracy" to target the Tea Party.
3. The IRS gets >70,000 requests each year and the office that handles this is staffed by 150-200 people... that's 350-400 cases / employee/ year... can you say short staffed ?
4.From testimony, this appears to be an error due to triaging the huge number of applications coming in. Just like in medicine, they take the most obvious and lump them together. This may be one of many tea party applicants appeared in the same pool. It was not conscious political targeting, but just the way the rules for triaging were applied.
5. Many administrators in the IRS were unaware of the details – this is coming out in Congressional testimony. So if they did know, how would Barack Obama know?
This is all going to be an empty-handed witch hunt which will put more egg on the face of the GOP. True, things need be corrected; but there wasn't any covert conspiracy by the Obama administration. I think Charles Krauthammer was right and they should've backed away from this until I got ALL the facts. But they are so rushed to judgment and to find anything to condemn Obama. ... and it's always the worst thing next to the apocalypse. How many times can they cry wolf?
The same is happening with the Benghazi investigation; it looks like there maybe been a dispute between the State Department and the CIA, read turf wars. This was the same type of problem they had with tracking the 9/11 hijackers and was not corrected when home security was created. They should have lumped the FBI and CIA into one agency.
I just hope the GOP keeps digging the hole bigger and deeper!
Proud MacBabe. Happy everything to everybody.

No surprise on either front. Will not stop the "thugs" from slamming away at flies with hand grenades. Their m.o. is to throw read meat to the eternally starving rabid right. Now the r.r. believes, along with coming for their guns, forcing health care down their throats, cannot keep us safe (Benghazi) etc. that Obama is spying and specifically targeting them re tax free status.These lies become their facts. Mission Accomplished.
Well in his defense (kinda), you don't blow these things immediately - they could be ongoing investigations to see how deep and widespread the infractions are... that doesn't mean conspiracy cause you don't take it to the MSM immediately - that's just good "police" work to let the investigators work all the details out before announcing it.
That said, I'm glad it's Issa, otherwise Fox would scream BO coverup !!
I really feel bad about Moore, OK; but at least the MSM focus is off Benghazi and the IRS for a while !
Someone called this political guerrilla warfare ... isn't that what the GOP has been doing with many citizens voting rights the past 3 years ... esp. those left leaning ? NOT excusing it, but lets look at the whole pile of bovine caca !!
AND GW took the 5th many times when asked troublesome questions... which we know he outright LIED about many touchy things his band of thugs did !
