The IRS apologizes. Should he President also apologize?

This link will take you just Joe and you will see on the left should Obama apologize....... Click that. It may take a minute but the discussion is really interesting. One big point, the colonies decided to break away from England because of unfair and unequal taxation.

I do not have a question as such but, I think the President is smart not to comment until he has more information.

I do think his saying that it will be thoroughly investigated is appropriate.

  • The infraction doesn't surprise me; the apology does. I think the President said the only thing he could really say at this point.

  • I think it's a bit strange that Obama's statement said "IF" the IRS did this. Helloooo, they ADMITTED they DID this last week. There is no IF, they did it.

  • I saw a little bit of his comment about it on the news today, & the President said that the IRS needs to be neutral & that anything less will not be tolerated. (not a direct quote) but he seemed disgusted by the whole thing. Later in the news, they reported a govt. surplus. I thought we were trillions in debt?! Hmm- maybe the IRS is doing more than targeting conservative groups! :p
