Endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals and phony scandals.
Debates and nonsense the phony scandals that have consumed so much attention here phony scandals.
Fake scandals or things like that.
Phony and -- -- conservative groups targeted by the error saying it's very real sodas the -- -- inspector general and house speaker John Boehner who told us quote.
It's clear now the president never took -- scandal seriously -- -- The house will continue its investigation in this matter because Americans deserve to know the truth so who's right.
Hi everybody got David has been -- of Forbes on FOX let's go -- focus with Steve Forbes Rick stronger job -- Elizabeth MacDonald.
Rich -- guard and Sabrina Schaeffer.
-- Mac as the president right.
Now he's strong you know just a few months ago I -- -- it he's saying he did say at that time didn't know patients -- those going out the IRS.
He found it outrageous they IRS must be held accountable.
But now he's saying essentially you know he's rewriting history is what he's doing -- iris workers are saying that a task force in Washington DC.
Recently oversaw this political targeting even knew -- -- the IRS is saying we need more investigation but they're trying to do -- silencing opposition.
Who don't like health reform who didn't like the -- the country.
-- want -- run and Rick usually usually when you hear politicians screaming that same line it's phony it's fake it's phony as fake.
Usually that means that we've hit on something you know well only when -- Democrats.
But you know letting Republicans -- Democrats look here's the reality the president has not suddenly sank.
That the IRS targeting of conservative groups didn't happen as Liz said.
He did acknowledge -- he continues to -- what he's talking about.
Is this effort to draw this direct line to the White House most recently exhibited by the daily caller when they pretended that -- the IRS attorney.
Went to a meeting which he did.
At the White House two days before but let's put up about whether -- what -- it pretends he was rarely -- picture exactly let's put that take a look at that picture you'll see them.
With thirteen other agency people are not internal revenue service agency people.
At a meeting with the president they come from all different agencies this is the -- -- allegedly by the fact there's a fact.
Is this guy William Balkans is is an appointee of political appointees -- chief counsel.
He took the Tea Party cases -- ways from those workers in Cincinnati after they concluded.
That they should receive -- profit -- they're going no doubt that's the truth look at the test rather porous and money.
The original review we don't have access to how to get -- awards because no we don't because he has not yet appeared Steve.
Before the congressional committee and that's why the Tea Party folks who were targeted at.
Like somebody who let's just play a tape of her she is the president of the what talked at Tea Party.
Responding to whether or not this is a phony scandal or not play the tape.
I think the only phony thing going on is the narrative that the White House is trying to push off onto the American people.
There are 200 organizations like the -- she represents who want answers don't they deserve the answers.
-- sure they do David and the fact of the matter is they're dragging this thing out being very slow in releasing documents and the like.
And the president saying this suspect is like Richard Nixon saying the word caper -- a third rate burglary.
And the fact the -- is the president right out in the open in 2010 numerous times calling for investigations by the IRS.
A dozen Democrats senators did the same thing so they didn't need to do it in secret meetings they that are right out in the open they want -- persecution and they got it and.
-- I'll tell you what is phony and what is dishonest is the attempt on the part of the administration and there are a lot whether they're media boot liquors to try to.
-- this thing.
As as being on both left and the right that is the progressives -- were targeted as well as Tea Party people.
The inspector general himself had to finally come out and say and I'm quoting him now we did not find evidence that the criteria you identified label progressives.
Were used by the IRS to select potential political cases during the 20102012.
Time for himself.
The inspector general himself saying this is not was not -- -- -- -- liberals and conservatives just conservatives they were targeting.
A president Obama's hubris is staggering what he -- for us to forget this and move on but the reality is that.
And obnoxious unaccountable federal agency.
Blunted the anti Obama ground game that potentially blunted the anti President Obama ground game that could change the electoral result -- 2012.
He -- to remember that there's a lot of emotion logically tied up and every election this one no different from the others in the scandals not going away people do you want answers.
And rich the fact is is that we saw the power of the -- -- in the 2010 elections.
The president and the democratic operatives did not want them to have the same kind of power in 2012.
Well absolutely because on the houses in Republican hands it really works Obama's agenda in his reach for his.
Legacy and history.
What -- you can't escape the fact that former IRS chief Doug showman visited the White House.
But do I think this scandal is really going to get legs ala Watergate no.
Because we have most politicized attorney general probably in history or at least since Nixon's John -- In Eric Holder and Eric Holder probably -- a sword before this goes anywhere.
But -- we do have a congressional committee that is intent on following this lead -- ago us.
I think we do but I -- -- is right I mean air -- talk about distractions now he's focused on taxes only should be talking about what happened Dyer asked.
I think this president is really up in the clouds at best he is you know truly disconnected from the American people and -- -- -- grossly dishonest.
If you look at the polls -- breast niece and others.
Nearly 60% of the American people think this is real they think it's serious and they think it originated and and it starts an end in Washington.
Rick I know you don't think the evidence is there maybe it's not yet -- -- connect to hold on a second for the connection between William Wilkins president appointee and these Tea Party groups although he spoke.
The cases away from the Cincinnati folks.
Don't want you want to know why he did that and whether or not he was influenced at all by the White House and I think it's fascinating that you're saying there was no testimony yet because he hasn't spoken but you're saying he'd tell -- right.
Let's play all -- a second yeah I'm saying that he hasn't appeared before congress it.
He will they're going to subpoena him to -- -- speaking make plead the fifth player -- learner we're I don't know where you getting the information that he Wilkins took these cases away from the Cincinnati caseworker right that's what I think that's what I was trying to get under testimony under -- let's go to that they lied they're going to be prosecute out -- -- let's go to that testimony as it was reported and then corrected.
By no more of a conservative magazine in the national review who pointed out that the way that testimony was reported again by the daily -- was not the test.
You actually I don't want to get well I think that's not an Iran that's not sure anybody got a great idea that the Internet has devoted solely -- here and so and we didn't go ahead what are.
He had to go ahead -- what you're incident really describe that are -- totally wrong.
What does your view is saying is we don't know I wanna know what mr.
Wilkie -- I want Millwood -- only -- Wilkins did and I'm not a second I wanna know what -- -- did.
-- visit the guys we're in the White House I don't know about the wink wink and a nod in the hallway so what had a meeting we all -- hold the final point.
Want -- real call for special prosecutor for Whitewater Nixon allowed a special prosecutor.
Elliot Richardson did -- before Watergate so why isn't the president allows special process.
Can't okay -- bottom why it is and there's a lot of information we need to get too don't we need that to come out in open testimony particularly testimony of somebody like mr.
-- -- Absolutely that's why I was he's right we do need a special prosecutor to get them to the bottom of this.
The Justice Department's not gonna do what congress is gonna have the tank because it's -- partisan least in the house.
And -- so we need somebody and -- real team to get to the bottom of this.
The fact of the matter is there's too much 200 organizations get targeted that just doesn't happen from from a few rogue agents this was directed and I wanna know David those twelve democratic senators wrote letters where -- they don't they went to the IRS who handled those out of they respond -- a lot more questions -- answers hopefully congress will get at those --
