When Scandals Reach Into the Oval Office


There is no evidence whatever that the IRS and other scandals reach into the oval office — or so Jay Carney tells us. But is that really so?

Ben Swann of Fox19 in Cincinnati has a convincing method of figuring out the lowest level at which the IRS scandals must have originated. Starting with the fact that six individual IRS agents sent letters to conservative groups that were essentially similar, Swann suggested a simple way of determining the identity of the senior person who either originated the practice or passed through an order that came from higher up. First, get the names of the people these six were supervised by. If that produces six different names, get the names of the people they were supervised by. Keep doing this until you have a single name — the common supervisor. Swann found that single name: Cindy Thomas.

Swann’s logic is hard to argue with. But let’s see what happens when we apply his method to the case reported by Peggy Noonan in her May 23 column in the Wall Street Journal.

      Doesn't say much for the average American. The best I ever heard in response to "I didn't know" was that anyone who went to the library in 2008 and used the computer for one hour would know all they needed to. Blithering idiots and that includes any relatives who voted for him.

      Scandal upon scandal and nothing to be done....where do we go from here?

  2. Going to the library and using the computer would have required effort, Brock. It would have interrupted watching the game on TV, or something. LOL. We get what we deserve, I guess...
