How does anyone believe anything Obama says anymore, except when he boasts that he's going to advance his liberal agenda lawlessly, without Congress, which he did again last week?

Obama Enables IRS Deception

Tuesday, 01 Jul 2014

Do you remember what President Obama initially said about the Internal Revenue Service scandal? Do you recall his professed outrage?
Obama wanted us to know how furious he was. He said, "The misconduct that (the inspector general's report) uncovered is inexcusable." "It's inexcusable," he repeated, "and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency — but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives."
He declared that the "responsible parties" would be held "accountable." He reported that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew "took the first step by requesting — and accepting — the resignation of the acting commissioner of the IRS (Steven Miller) because given the controversy surrounding this audit, it's important to institute new leadership that can help restore confidence going forward."
He said he had directed the agency to implement recommendations from the inspector general to ensure that this outrageous conduct would not be repeated.
Please don't snicker at this, but Obama also promised that his administration would work "hand in hand with Congress to get this thing fixed."
Be advised that he was reading from a prepared statement, which means he wasn't shooting from the hip and said precisely what he intended to say.
