Has Obama been told he won the Nov 2012 Election yet? I'm not sure he knows as he is still on the campaign trail!

In other words, we are supposed to believe that the captain of the ship is not approaching big rocks and only the deckmen knew? I cannot believe that. And when only the "acting commisioner" knew to make hugh steps, and that acting person was just about to retire in June? That also seems full of broth and little meat. If we swollen this, then we are full fools.

"the ship is not approaching big rocks" -- by 'big rocks', you mean 'an ongoing investigation into delayed approval of an application'?

Obama often uses this line: "I found out about this folks, about when you did, I think last Friday". Am I the only one out here that is totally shocked that this guy, Obama, that people haven't caught on to him yet? Are we really this dumb of a country?

If you really believe that Obama didn't know about this, you are living in a Democrat's wonderland. By the way, Strib, nice job on the statement of fact headline on the home page. Your bias is showing!

Everyone knew this was going on over a year ago. It was even reported in major newspapers - shockingly. What fantasyland does this administration live in? And the media keeps covering everything up. We now have a population of dumb and ignorant sheep being led to slaughter. Obama never leads, just campaigns, and denies any knowledge of anything. Third world country anyone?

Wow... You can't get much more transparent than the Commander-in-Chief not being told what's going on.

There should be more scrutiny of tea party groups, not less. These are blantantly political groups, not charities, and should not have tax breaks. In addition, if the tea party ever had control of the IRS, they would go after Dems in the same way, and would wear it on their sleeve as a badge of honor.

This IRS scandal is bigger that Watergate.
