Obama: Not ‘even a smidgen of corruption’ behind IRS targeting

February 3, 2014

President Obama in a pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News said that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” behind the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups.

“There were some boneheaded decisions,” he said. “Not even mass corruption. Not even a smidgen of corruption.”

Obama said that people are questioning whether the IRS actions were politically motivated attempts to help the Democrats because Fox News is promoting the idea.

“These kind of things keep on surfacing because you and your TV station will promote them,” he said to Bill O’Reilly of such ideas.

He said the IRS treated the conservative groups the way it did because of confusion over how to apply the law on social welfare groups.

    So much criticism of Bob Schieffer on Face The Nation, and how he interrupted and talked over Sen Cruz’s interview. Not one comment here about how Bill O’Reilly kept interrupting the President. A classic example of a double standard. Interesting…

    Can Obama open his mouth without a lie coming out of it? I have yet to hear anything that resembles truth from him.
