"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Shocker: IRS Offices Firmly Side with Obama and Democrats

"The IRS dares to dream, dares to see the coming age of light. It will be a a glorious era of enlightenment... where federal bureaucrats shall reign over the huddled masses of pathetic non-government workers."

The IRS has become Obama's political attack dogs. Doubtlessly, their partisan attacks and leaks of Republicans' tax records and donor lists influenced the presidential race and very possibly changed the outcome.Would you expect anything else?

From The Washington Times article by Stephan Dinan (via Drudge):

Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats. 
In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.  
In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement. 
OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee. 
Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.  
“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”
The federal Hatch Act prohibits most government employees from conducting politics on government time. OSC is charged with looking into those violations.   
The accusations come as the IRS is still facing tough questions from House Republicans over its targeting of conservative groups seeking nonprofit status.
I'm sure it's just some individuals that just happen to work there and not a systemic/cultural problem caused by public sector unions. I mean suggesting that would just be crazy talk. Right, Wisconsin and Scott Walker?
