GOP SENATOR: Obama Must
Apologize For ´Absolutely Chilling´
IRS Targeting Of Tea Party Groups

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 5/12/2013 12:05:28 PM

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that the IRS´ admission of targeting various conservative groups for extra scrutiny was "absolutely chilling," and she called on President Barack Obama to apologize. "This is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government," Collins said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "It is absolutely chilling that the IRS was singling out conservative groups for extra review, and I think it´s very disappointing that the president hasn´t personally condemned this and spoken out."

Comments:
1) Apoligize
2) Resign

Barry´s biggest problem is that Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals" doesn´t tell him what to do when you get caught red handed.

The black caucus set the tone for the absolute disrespect of the TEA party.
Your aunt, your mother, perhaps your grandfather are members. Law abiding peaceful people who never before protested anything stood up to protest too high taxes and a bloated dishonest government and they were pilloried and called racist!
I demand an apology from the black caucus.

Collins has actually been pretty decent since her sidekick Snowe resigned. She´s not an outspoken person to begin with but she´s the kind of republican the left wants all of the republicans to be.So for her to speak out on this carries more clout than it appears..

I also like the Senator from NH, who held her own during the gun debate. She´d make a nice VP pick 2016. In fact,I wish Romney would have picked her this time. At least it would have knocked down the war on women crap,some.

Auditing pro Israel groups is really shameful and it shows Obama is anti-Israel,its just too bad a lot of American jews can´t seem to figure this out,unless they´ve been promised a seat at the table when the government overthrow happens.

The administration is trying to blame low level IRS employees. How do low level employees have this much power? If they do have this power than there is no need for the high level employees. Cut them out. Cover ups for Benghazi, Fast & Furious and IRS targeting conservative groups are all more serious than Whitewater. Where are the award winning investigative reporters?

This white-glove, mamby-pamby response to the esteemed president is garbage. You, Susan Collins, don´t know what outrage is! To you, outrage means to form another committee or to use passive words like "distrust, and disappointing."

Americans are livid, truly outraged and recent revelations have confirmed what we knew all along about the corruption and collusion in government. President of CBS and ABC in the White House pocket; reporters and the media in the tank; all willingly complicit in the actions and coverups of obama.

I keep thinking about the PJMedia headline, "first they came for the Tea Party, and then they came for the Jews´.

Any living American who remembers the history of WWII should be scared out of their pj´s with this abuse of power move.

I blame the Iranian born, Chicago reared, ValJar. Time to list all her "revenge" quotes and make her accountable for her part in this chilling of Free Speech. A serious offense in a Representative Republic.

The o. family needs to dump her immediately, no matter how "special" her relationship is with them.

I would welcome Obama resigning, but I´m more in favor of his well-deserved impeachment. Future Presidents cannot use the Obama years as a precedent in order to get by with unconstitutional behavior just because Obama did.

The Supreme Court worries me because they turned a blind eye to his ineligibility to be POTUS. The Constitution has no Article, Clause, or Amendment which states that a person should be given special treatment(by ignoring the eligibility requirements) because of the color of his/her skin.

Until Obama can prove that his real father is an American citizen (no matter how embarrassing that might be to him), he should be removed from office. Since that´s not going to happen, there are so many instances of unconstitutional behavior during the past 5 years that Articles of Impeachment should have been issued already.

Glad to see that Senator Collins is speaking out, but I agree with above posters that Obama needs to do more than apologize. He would probably cross his fingers behind his back, since he wouldn´t mean it.

Several years ago I was closing on a second home. The seller had gotten himself in trouble with the IRS and their agent was there to get the fed´s share. I made the mistake of jokingly telling the agent not to give the money to Obama and that he might just waste it.

Two weeks later I got an audit letter. Never been audited before in fifty years of filing my return. Coincidence? I doubt it.

Anyone who is waiting for a president with no birth certificate, an Indonesian passport and s stolen social security number to do the right thing, has a long wait in store. And anyone who is waiting for the people who voted for him to regret doing so is also in for a long wait. They´re all Democrats and it´s how they roll.

While i am not a member of any TEA Party group or any other group, for that matter, i have been annoyed and angered that so many Republicans and even some purported "Conservatives" have bought the line of attacks against TEA Partiers, that they are radical or "right wing" or any number of other attacks designed to be as pejorative as possible.

All of this was going on while the OWSers ("Occupy Wall Streeters") were committing crimes, polluting, defiling, putrefying and otherwise dirtying up wherever they squatted, with little or no criticism.

Also very important, the IRS wanted the mailing lists, i guess the list of donors, of TEA Party groups. The intention is to chill support, by instilling fear in supporters.

This is exactly how totalitarian dictatorial regimes work. Usually they make these incursions on liberty step by step.

We must demand that Democrats --IF they believe in liberty and will uphold their Oath to defend and protect this Constitutional Republic-- also condemn the BO regime´s unlawful, duplicitous behavior... including the flagrant use of "executive orders" when Congress prevents him from doing what he wants.

I dunno, there are times I just don´t understand you guys. I think #5 and #10 have nailed it.

Senator Collins is about as liberal as you can be and still be a Republican. When she speaks out against Mr. Obama, it means a lot!

Of course, the more conservative types will call for impeachment or tar and feathers--none of which is going to happen--but for a lib to speak out like this is like a canary in a coal mine.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov.

Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of
