Is it possible that the right-leaning Tea Party was being forced to reconcile onerous information requests from the Internal Revenue Service because former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, thought the nascent conservative movement reflected poorly on the Republican Party? This is the theory that was posited on MSNBC on Monday in an effort to explain the IRS’ admission that they had singled out conservative groups for undue scrutiny. ...................

MSNBC Speculates: Bush Appointee In IRS Targeted Tea Party Because They Reflected Badly On GOP


related story:

Fun from MSNBC’s early afternoon “news” bloc of programming via Noah Rothman. The logic is ironclad and inexorable: Doug Shulman, appointed IRS commissioner by Bush in March 2008, was so fiercely loyal to his Beltway Republican masters that he decided to risk his career to kneecap conservative insurgents’ nonprofits in 2010 … even though Bush had left office more than a year before and the GOP establishment he represented was widely loathed by pretty much everyone in America. Oh, and even though (again per Rothman) Shulman himself has donated to the DNC in the past. Say it with me, guys: This. Is. A. Republican. Scandal.
New MSNBC theory: Maybe the IRS commissioner appointed by Bush targeted tea partiers because they’re a threat to the GOP


They can't be serious can they ?

Is this more deflecting and diverting ?

Maybe this guy Shulman is a deep cover shill leftover from the Clinton years ?

Funny just the same.

Well ?

Remember the source is MSNBC

He may try to use this out that was handed to him by MSNBC, (anyone else smell 'journ-o-list' here?), but will it actually fly? I don't think so...

Not that I necessarily believe it but that would be a smart move. The Tea Party was certainly hurting the GOP's desired image.

Oh good God almighty, not the blame game again!!

This song and dance is getting old.

Can't any one in this administration accept responsibility for any thing?
Their list of scandals is longer than my grocery list...

Pathetic

That theory is definitely silly....but is it any more silly than all the theories being pushed out by Republicans and Fox News? I think not.

and they aren't saying it's Bush's fault. Get your facts straight. They're saying it could've been a Republican who did it! Bush really has nothing to do with what they're saying.

I had to star you for that
I don't involve myself in American politics normally,being South African.But that's why this one made me smile-reminds me of our ANC government-by 2014,they'd have 20years of governing all by themselves-with accompanying carte blanche to show everyone what they are capable of-which,unfortunately, is turning a thriving 1st world country into a 3rd world one,amongst other things-but now,19 years later,we still have to listen to how everything they Choose to do wrong,is Apartheid's fault.Get caught misapropriating government funds? Made asinine decisions which led to predictably disastrous results? Press the "blame Apartheid button" and Bob's your uncle
In this case that would be dear uncle Robert Mogabe,btw

Good point.

Many have forgotten about that J-List !!

When the lights were turned on, they scattered like roaches



JournoList (sometimes referred to as the J-List)[1] was a private Google Groups forum for discussing politics and the news media with 400 "left-leaning"[2] journalists, academics and others. Ezra Klein created the online forum in February 2007 while blogging at The American Prospect and shut it down on June 25, 2010 amid public exposure and controversy. He controlled the forum's membership and limited it to "several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics".[2] Posts within JournoList were intended only be made and read by its members.[3] Klein defended the forum structure saying that it ensures "that folks feel safe giving off-the-cuff analysis and instant reactions"..................................

The latest revelations from Journo-list are deeply depressing to me. What's depressing is the way in which liberal journalists are not responding to events in order to find out the truth, but playing strategic games to cover or not cover events and controversies in order to win a media/political war.

The far right is right on this: this collusion is corruption. It is no less corrupt than the comically propagandistic Fox News and the lock-step orthodoxy on the partisan right in journalism - but it is nonetheless corrupt. Having a private journalistic list-serv to debate, bring issues to general attention, notice new facts seems pretty innocuous to me. But this was an attempt to corral press coverage and skew it to a particular outcome.

You'll never guess in a Million Years who was blaming Bush today,,,,,,OK, OK, I'll tell ya


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blamed former President George W. Bush for the IRS' targeting of tea party groups in the lead-up to the 2012 election. According to NowThisNews' Julie Eckert, Pelosi claimed Bush is responsible for the scandal because he appointed Douglas Shulman, former commissioner of the IRS. Shulman, who was appointed in 2008, left his post in November 2012, when his term expired.

Now aren't You Surprised!!! I bet you'll never guess who she defended as being perfect in every way and could walk on water and feed the masses,,, You give up?

While blaming Bush, Pelosi defended President Barack Obama, who has called the scandal "outrageous."
