The white house's reaction to criticism. Up next will her IRS audit.

I think she probably ordered her own audit here, redkayak. We wouldn't want our esteemed legislators to be perceived as being above the law here. After all, the best leadership is by example. Wouldn't you agree?

This is worse than Watergate.

Bachmann has nothing to do with the people who ran her campaign finances but is implicated simply by her name being associated with them. Obama has nothing to do with the IRS's scrutiny of Tea Party members tax forms but is implicated simply by being associated with them. But, which of the two people is accusing the other of deliberate dirty deeds? Perhaps Bachmann's accusatory nature stems from her confused identity: is she an Iowan or a Minnesotan? Is she a Swiss citizen or an American?

Funny... the FBI is focusing on her top aides? I wonder if she will take the tea party 101 tactic of saying that the head honcho is responsible for all campaign decisions? Betcha, that all of a sudden, it is a vendetta against her and it is all a result of manufactured allegations by disgruntled ex-campaign workers. Don't you think we should have a congressional hearing to get to the truth? And can we please read ALL your email? How does it feel to be on the other end of the allegations?

She needs to understand the heat has been on and will continue. That's the main reason no one is asking for her support.

This is probably the biggest scandal since Watergate.

So Obama is using the FBI just as he used the IRS to intimidate political opposition now. Shame on anyone who voted for this corrupt administration.
