David Axelrod vastly underestimates the stupidity of this Administration
The newest attempt at waiving the media away from the IRS part of the scandal trifecta that plagues the Administration comes from Obama apologist David Axelrod:
“I think it [the IRS targeting of conservative groups and individual taxpayers] was an idiotic thing to do,” Axelrod said. “But I will point you to the Inspector General’s report that said it wasn’t done for a political reason. They were flooded with applications.”
There are at least four problems with Axelrod’s spin: 1) it is self-evident this was done for political purpose, hence the instructions to the field from Washington and the known 88 individuals involved; 2) the “flood” of applications didn’t happen until targeting had already begun; 3) as part and parcel to the Obama Administration, Axelrod is incapable of underestimating their idiocy; 4) IRS employees have said it was done for political purpose.
If the lack of idiocy was the test for this Administration we’d have no Eric Holder, full employment, no pending Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare would be solvent, and the federal government would be running a surplus.
We have not mere idiocy with the Obama Administration; we have idiots with initiative, a most dangerous situation.
Additionally it’s clear the Administration thinks its existing scandal mitigation efforts have been inadequate, hence the appearance of Axelrod and “former White House advisor” David Plouffe.
Despite their efforts, the red Obama Fail warning light remains illuminated steadily.
