    that President Obama handled the IRS's wrongdoing correctly in this case.

    There is NO evidence that there is any stink on him or anyone directly under him from this.  

    All of that said, I'm still very disappointed in many of the people who have tried to pretend that it's a non-issue for the IRS to do this, or that we shouldn't care since they've done it to so many progressive groups in the past.

    It was wrong, but this time the Administration got it right.

    •  The issue is the keywords... (3+ / 0-)

      ...they should not have been used in that way. The IRS was 100% right to review everyone reviewed. They were not right to miss others that they should have reviewed, simply because other words were used as keywords.

      The questions asked of the reviewed organizations could stand a rework, as well, simply to make them less about the people and more about the actual actions of the organization.
