GEORGE F. WILL: The Face of IRS Behavior
What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent.
Hers, however, is an eloquent silence.
The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status.

You know, this could have been a lot worse. So… up-twinkles, I guess. Only losing $10.5 billion on a payoff to special interests (in this case, labor unions) qualifies as a roaring success by current Washington standards. And, sadly, I don’t just mean Obama standards. Fox Business brings us the happy news that the “G” in GM no longer stands for “Government”:
There’s been plenty of talk lately about just how screwed up the launch of Healthcare.gov has been. While any massively large-scale internet launch is likely to suffer some problems, the level of disaster on this particular project has been quite impressive. This has led some to wonder why this happened, especially given the reputation of President Obama’s “web-savvy” campaign team. The answers aren’t too hard to figure out, of course. First off, the campaign team is quite different from the team implementing this — which was handled by the Department of Health and Human Services. But, more importantly: it appears that the federal government basically handed this project over to the same crew of giant government contractors, who have a long history of screwed up giant IT projects, and almost no sense of the “internet native” world.

A vote for incumbent president Barack Obama in November is a vote against the United States Constitution. Furthermore, it is a vote for one’s own enslavement.
No American president has demonstrated such contempt for the Constitution, the concept of separation of powers, and the American spirit in as small an amount of time as Obama. His transgressions and insults are legion:
He has initiated an unprecedented expansion of executive and regulatory power to grant waivers from the law to individuals and groups for political purposes, financial gain, or both.
He has enacted rules governing pieces of legislation that are incomprehensible, leading to increased power to those in power through their interpretation of those rules.
He has overseen a deadly criminal gun-walking operation to foreign gangsters, in defiance of the law and placing our national security at risk.
His attorney general, in connection with that scheme, is officially in contempt of Congress.
He has attempted to nationalize one-sixth of the American economy in defiance of the Constitution and the principles of the free market.
In case you missed this article from JudicalWatch.com I thought you might like a little light reading after a hard day at work. And while trying to figure our how your going to pay your bills. I especially like the last line in the article, “Washington D.C. – City of Liars and Thieves and Occasional Murderers.” and that’s the truth, Mr TakeDown
Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2012
December 31, 2012
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released its 2012 list of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.” The list, in alphabetical order, includes:
Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL):
In July 2012, the House Ethics Committee, after a haphazard investigation, reported that Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) had omitted information on his financial disclosure forms over four years. However, the ethics committee took no action because once caught, Rep. Buchanan evidently corrected the “errors.” What, exactly, were the errors? In his disclosure statements for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, Buchanan failed to report all of his positions or ownership interests in six entities and income received from the entities.
