Karl Rove Melts Down When Confronted With Bush IRS Investigation


Recommended Posts

When David Plouffe confronted Karl Rove with evidence that his Bush administration used the IRS to investigate the NAACP, Rove melted down and stammered baloney.

 

Rove lied about his association with GPS by leaving out one important detail. Rove isn’t on the board, but GPS works in direct conjunction with the group Rove founded and still advises, American Crossroads.

 

Rove saying that he isn’t involved with GPS was just like Mitt Romney claiming that his presidential campaign wasn’t involved with the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future.

 

Plouffe was correct. Liberal groups were also targeted by the IRS. Bloomberg reported that the IRS sent the same letter to Democrats that they sent to tea partiers. The IRS did something to the liberal group Emerge America that they never did to the conservatives. They revoked their tax exempt status.

 

Stop me if you have heard this one before, but when confronted with evidence of the Bush administration targeting liberal groups, all Rove could do was stammer the word baloney repeatedly. Under George W. Bush, the IRS investigated the NAACP’s tax status for two years. Rove even gave the reason for the payback when he pointed to the Bush administration’s outrage over an ad that the NAACP had run.

 

It is easy to see why Rove’s Crossroads groups have had so little success taking on the president. David Plouffe ran circles around Karl and his talking points. Rove kept shifting his story so much that he went from blaming Obama to blaming Democratic senators to blaming the culture at the IRS.

 

Rove is supposed be one of the Republican Party’s great spin masters, but even he couldn’t make these IRS allegations stick.

The threads are starting to show on the IRS scandal, and the whole thing is looking more than a little ratty.

 

Rove was right about one thing. There is some serious baloney being thrown around, and it’s the Republican Party tossing it.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Pick a side any side just so much as to never know which side is absolutely correct because neither theory or theology describe a whole of anything real, really to maintain reality's philosophy nobody knows everything accept why and how to keep everyone guessing what real can become tomorrow and there is now way in hell now is physical Eternity..

There is a distinct difference in 'investigating' non-profit activities and singling out applications based on political affiliation.

 

Rove said 'baloney' when Plouffe said it wasn't political. That's ridiculous on its face.

Liberals trying to save the IRS' asses. The fact that 3 liberal groups got the same letter that hundreds of Conservative groups did, means nothing.

 

The IRS has ADMITTED they targeted TEA Party groups for additional scrutiny.

When are you liberals going to admit the truth, when the IRS and the Administration already has?

 

I guess we need to start calling you idiots "Taxers".

 

 

 

Rove said 'baloney' when Plouffe said it wasn't political. That's ridiculous on its face.

Two IRS agents on Friday testified that it was indeed political.

These are the people that the Administration and IRS heads are trying to scapegoat as being responsible for what happened.

 

These people are obviously not going to roll over and fall on the sword for this administration.

You moonbats can't even cite the liberal MSM anymore. You have to find some dishonest wackjob website.

 

I don't care if Rove stammered or now, though I'll bet blind that's bulls***.

 

Obama's IRS committed a massive, widespread abuse of power. That's an impeachable offense.

So what? I could care less about liberal groups being targeted. So why should anyone give a rats ass when a conservative group is targeted? I am a Hypocrite.

 

Fixed that for ya.

Dumbass. IRS ciefs are not impeached - they are dismissed. Take a civics class, you lunatic.

You people are hopelessly clueless.

No, it is Liberals understanding that the IRS was "targeting" those that might be "an action organization" and showing you that it is called vetting...

 

"To be tax-exempt under section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501©(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates."

Can you honestly say that the Tea Party movement had little or no one attempting to "influence legislation" and little or no one participating" in campaign activity for or against political candidates" to make Tea Party suspect for the stated criterion?

 

I can honestly say that vetting for the above criterion has to be political in nature by definition and if you apply using words that have a connotation that implies that you may head in the direction of non-compliance you have put a target on yourself. So that 3 Liberal groups were stupid enough to do that kind of shows the significance of not doing that.

Hey Billy, they weren't applying as 501©(3) entities, they were applying as 501©(4).

Different rules that don't prohibit political activities.

 

Nice rant though. :rolleyes:

 

But HE did it - got FIRED for it.

 

Who WERE you talking about, you wierdo?

Got fired for it? That's a joke.

He was "asked to retire" 4 weeks earlier than he was already leaving office, and he stayed in the job for 2 weeks after the "firing". As a matter of fact, he may still be there for all we know.

 

 

lets have an investigation into bush irs scandal.

Okay, let's do. Oh wait, we can't. There wasn't one.

Damn. That sucks.

I saw the clip, and yes, Rove stammered. In outrage over Ploufe's repeated blatant lies.

 

Imbecile.

He had a bad flash back to the wedgies he received in grade, high school, and college I understand he was hospitalized several times for the injuries inflicted by them.
