Top Obama Official Can’t Call the Constitution to Mind
Add “the contents of the Constitution” to the vast list of things Douglas Shulman, former IRS commissioner, doesn’t know. After hours of finding new ways to turn the phrase, “I don’t know”, Shulman was asked by Representative Kerry Bentivolio (R, MI) if he was “familiar with the first, second, and nineteenth amendments”. Shulman’s sarcastic and absolutely horrifying reply was, “I couldn’t recite the Constitution back to you”. Bentivolio pressed him a few more times on whether he had even a vague understanding of the Constitution, specifically the first, second, and nineteenth amendments. Shulman continued to flounder, unable to answer questions the average eighth grader should know.
After he admitted his stunning ignorance of a document he’s supposed to be upholding and so should be at least passingly familiar with, he compounded his stupefying lack of knowledge by admitting he didn’t know what the “TEA” in “TEA Party” stands for. Bentivolio informed him it’s “Taxed Enough Already”, but after the revelations of the last couple weeks, we could just as easily call it “Targeted Enough Already”.
If this, the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States, has taught us anything, it’s that we don’t need to know what’s in a bill in order to pass it and we don’t need to know what the acronym of a conservative organization stands for in order to target it with intimidation and discrimination.
Time to walk these idiots out the door and into jail cells where they belong. How long will we allow them to destroy our country?
After listening to some of Schulman’s responses yesterday, it is clear that he doesn’t take this seriously and feels above the law.
As much as I want to see the IRS and the Obama Administration burn for all this, I’m afraid that if all the players involved keep playing the “I Don’t Know” card, these investigations may go no where. I hope I am wrong!
