He has zero credibility.
Obama says first learned about the IRS controversy from news reports. He called the purported targeting of conservative groups by IRS personnel “outrageous and there is no place for it.” The IRS has to have “absolute integrity, ” Obama adds.
“You don’t want the IRS ever being perceived to be biased,” Obama said.
The president adds that his administration will get to the bottom of what happened at the IRS. “I have no patience for it. I will not tolerate it. ”
On Benghazi controversy, Obama says “There is no there, there.”
Um, OK. He also feigned outrage for his administration targeting tea partiers, among others.
“I’ve got no patience with it,” he added. “I will not tolerate it and we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened on this.”
We find out? I don’t think so. Congress will be taking that one up. Meanwhile a top Democrat expressed what we all know:
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a Democrat, called the targeting “intolerable” and an “outrageous abuse of power.”
“Americans expect the IRS to do its job without passion or prejudice,” he said in a statement. “We need to get to the bottom of what happened here.”
