Strassel: IRS Scandal's Roots in Obama's 2008 Campaign; Attacked Clinton, Edwards, Too

Strassel: IRS Scandal's Roots in Obama's 2008 Campaign; Attacked Clinton, Edwards, Too
"None of this proves that Mr. Obama was involved in the IRS targeting of conservative nonprofits," she writes. "But it does help explain how we got an environment in which the IRS thought this was acceptable."

The important point is that the Obama administration's behavior in the Benghazi scandal (intimidating whistleblowers), the IRS scandal (targeting conservative nonprofits and donors), and the AP and Rosen scandals (hounding individual journalists and news agencies) is a feature of Obama's character and leadership, not a bug. He may know well enough to keep himself at arm's length, to retain the fa├žade of "plausible deniability." But the pattern of behavior is becoming undeniable, as is Obama's ultimate responsibility.

They use KGB/Stasi tactics because that's the mindset of the people running this country now. Stay in power at all costs, no matter who you have to ruin or terrify with threats.
