George Will: Obama acts bored with IRS scandal because he knows media’s ignoring it

george-will-foxPulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will asserted Monday that President Obama has grown bored with the notion of an IRS scandal because he knows the media has his back.

In his much talked about Super Bowl pre-game interview on Fox News, the president rejected any charges that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups for additional scrutiny.

“That’s not what happened,” Obama told host Bill O’Reilly.

Despite an ongoing FBI investigation, Obama declared there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” at the agency.

In an appearance Monday on Fox News, Will noted that scandals are “a dime a dozen in this town,” but said the alleged IRS scandal is among the “three major scandals in the last forty years,” Newsbusters reported.

“Three big ones regarding the distortion and abuse of institutions: Watergate, Iran-Contra and the IRS,” Will told “Special Report” host Bret Baier. “The first two were ravenously covered by the media; they were Republican Presidents’ problems. This is not being pursued and the President knows that.”

“Hence, his sense of weariness and boredom as he discussed this with Bill O’Reilly,” he concluded.

    Not a smidgen of corruption my ass Obama has been well schooled in corruption by Valerie Jarrett who is actually the President of the United States. The Chicago Way has gone nationwide with Valerie Jarrett at the helm.

    Welcome to Chicago Politics.

    Scandals regularly happen (it was news when one year…no Chicago alderman got arrested). But people fall on their sword and protect the Leader. Now we’ve nationalized Chicago politics.

      …and the easily led…will find some way to blame it all on George W. Bush. (Their parents blamed it all on Nixon…who is now dead.)

    We The People can make sure this scandal doesn’t die by writing letters to our local newspapers, commenting on articles posted on the Internet, passing along information about it to our less informed friends and family, etc. The bloggers can keep this alive…the best and most dedicated has been the TaxProf Blog which posts every single day. I try to make time to comment on as many articles that he posts that I can. I’m hoping this helps to motivate other Americans because no one is safe with an IRS that abuses Americans because of their politics. If we don’t stop the IRS, they could start abusing us for other than political reasons– e.g., inequality, redistribution of wealth, using too much healthcare under Obamacare, etc.
