"How are Obama and the IRS getting away with a blatant coverup?"

Kyle Smith puts the IRS scandal into perspective.

thanks for the link

while the liberal media continues to attack Nixon for attempting to have the IRS interfere in politics, Obama was able to successfully corrupt the IRS and use their power to attack his opponents in the months before his re-election. Yet the media acts as if it is a non-story.

i wonder if Lois Lerner would squeal if given immunity ? Could she still take the 5th if given immunity ? Or would she face contempt charges ?

Part of the blame is the media, but the republicans could have made this a bigger issue. I suppose they have so many scandals with Obama such as Benghazi , granting Amnesty to Juveniles , Syria , Iraq etc.... the republicans have so many impeachable offenses they do not know which one to focus on.

Anon --
You're right, the contrast between the way the media attempted Nixon and Obama is very illuminating -- and disgusting.

I hadn't even thought about them offering Lerner immunity; I almost wish they would.

And yes, it does seem as if there are too many scandals to be able to give any of them the focus they deserve. Look at the way Fast and Furious just faded from view because the media chose to ignore it and the Republicans had so many other things to focus on. Or look at the way Holder was held in contempt of Congress and nothing has come of that.
