I’m betting that, except for a lack of IRS agents, the audit percentage would have been 100% of large GOP donors. Hence Obama’s obsession with hiring thousands of new IRS agents.
There’s another metric to solve the debate. What was the percentage of GOP vs. Democratic contributors that were audited during the terms of all recent Presidents (starting with Carter in 1976 through Bush in 2004)? I’m betting Obama audited a far higher percentage of Republicans than any other President. Anyone want to take my bet?
What about the percentage of Tea Party and conservative groups being audited in the past 4 years versus liberal, union, or environmental advocacy groups?
Or, the percentage of Pro Israel groups compared to Muslim and Pro Palestinian groups?
What percentage of pro Constitution groups were audited vs. PETA or the Sierra Club?
Or, Pro Life groups vs. Pro Choice?
Or, pro business groups vs. pro union?
Finally, what percentage of taxpayers who donated to The Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) were audited since Obama defeated Mitt Romney?
What do you think we’ll find? Is anyone willing to bet we won’t see startling patterns that clearly indicate targeting and persecution of Obama’s critics and donors?
With the IRS computers and FEC (Federal Election Commission) databases this is easy to do. The whole picture will be clear within two weeks. If I’m wrong, I will gladly apologize and admit the error of my ways.
If I’m right, Obama should resign in disgrace.
If there is no pattern, no orders from the White House, then Obama has nothing to fear. Why not start the investigation immediately? Of course, since we know the IRS can’t be trusted, the examination of the data would have to be done by an impartial third party.
Mr. President, did you or did you not attack your critics and political opponents to intimidate, punish and silence them? Did you target donors to bleed them dry and make their lives miserable? There is one easy way to find out. Let’s look at the numbers.
If you’re innocent there’s no reason to object or stall. So let’s get started NOW! We should know the answers within two weeks. Or is this another situation like the release of your college records? If you have nothing to hide, why keep records sealed from the public?
I can’t wait. I’m eager to see the numbers. I’m confident in what they’ll show. What about you Mr. President?
