Majority Believe Obama’s IRS Targeting of Tea Party Was Intentional and Illegal

This isn’t some poll from a right-wing outfit either. It’s the Washington Post/ABC News poll, which surely must have to White House ready to target those liberal news outfits.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans believe the Internal Revenue Service targeting scandal was an intentional effort to harass conservative political groups.

In a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday, 56 percent said the IRS use of higher scrutiny on Tea Party groups seeking tax exempt status was a deliberate move, with 31 percent calling it an “administrative mistake.”

An administrative mistake that singled out 500  different groups, all from one side of the political spectrum. Geez, some people will buy anything.

A strong majority, 74 percent, said the IRS moves were inappropriate to 20 percent who said they were appropriate. Fifty-one percent also said they believe those actions were illegal to 44 who said they were inappropriate but not against the law.

There’s still a diehard 20 percent of Obama Koolaid slurpers who think have a banana republic dictator in office is just awesome. Of course they wouldn’t be thinking that if they were the targets.

    The CNN poll giving Obama a 53% approval rating only included 24% Republicans.

    You can pretty much expect this from any MSM poll. They do not measure public opinion, they are designed to create public opinion and become the premise for the news cycle.

    The fact that only 24% of respondents are Republicans in poll after poll after poll tells you this is not a random sampling, this is an intentional false weighting.

    I’m done with bitching about polls, I was told the polls were improperly weighted and that Romney would coast to victory last November. A lot of good that did us.

    Obama has a 53% approval rating, now what will have to happen for that to go down?

    Won’t guess the percentage or numbers, but from private conversations it is my opinion that many Democrat/Obama supporters honestly believe that this sort of thing is normal and business as usual, and that Bush, etc. simply didn’t get caught at it. It is my analysis that they have been told for so long that they are powerless and just pawns that they’ve accepted it and are content to see their political role as cheerleader for their team. A sort of political Stockholm Syndrome.

    That 20% is comprised of complete welfare slugs without possibility of rehabilitation and the Communists that inhabit College staff rooms and Democrat war rooms. Believe it or not, a large number of people WANT Communism and not for the free money (until it runs out), They want the power to control other people even up to the power of life and death, at their wim of course. They are mentally ill. They must be recognized as such.
