If the press decides that they are angrier about the IRS intimidation and spying than they are fearful of losing Press Corps dinner perks and being perceived as insufficiently lefty at DC, LA and NY soirees, there might be an avalanche of pent-up hostility to the God King’s arrogance.  Still hard to say at this point. An awful lot of thrills up the leg have been invested in this secular messiah. But it is heartening to see that there seems to be some movement here.  It’s one thing when he claims the power to murder and imprison the riff raff.  It’s quite another when his arrogance begins to directly affect the hitherto supine media itself–especially after they have been such good soldiers for him.  People dislike betrayal, including journalists.  Self-interest among the media may achieve what a now deadened interest in the common good could not.  Fake dudgeon may become real dudgeon if they conclude that Obama’s arrogance is a real menace to them.  If they really turn on him, we may see a feeding frenzy of pack journalism unequaled since Nixon–the President Obama most closely resembles in his management style, though with far more personal charm.  Hell hath no fury like a partisan scorned.  The only downside is that even if we get rid of him, the rest of them (including the press) are still there.

    oh, goody. The IRS also has a huge responsibility in new health care laws … IT”S GONNA BE FUN!!!!!!!!!!

      I can’t recall where, but I seem to remember reading some congresscritters betting just the other day for the IRS to be kept out of Obamacare.

      Which will be tough since, you know, the Supreme Court declared it was a tax.

    Biden will still be there too. Good Ole Uncle Joe.

    • Andy, Bad Person

      I know everyone is afraid of Joe, but he’s nothing. He’s incompetent and would get absolutely nothing accomplished.

      Which, coincidentally, is exactly what I’m looking for in a president.

    Is this “IRS Chief” the one who “does not exist” according to Jason Easely (after Rubio demanded that he resign, “proving” how stupid Those Republicans are)?
