Bruce Braley pushed IRS to crack down on Tea Party groups.

Of course he did: Bruce Braley is, after all, a liberal lawyer-loving Democrat.

Four days after the head of the Internal Revenue Service denied the agency was targeting conservative social welfare organizations applying for tax exempt status, Rep. Bruce Braley signed a letter urging a probe into the political activities of social welfare organizations.

Braley was one of 30 Democratic members of Congress who signed the letter, dated March 26, 2012, to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman urging him to investigate whether “any groups qualifying as social welfare organizations under section 501(c)(4) of the federal tax code are improperly engaged in political campaign activity.”

Braley later – as in, ‘after the 2012 election’ – called the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups ‘shameful.’  Which it certainly was: but they learned it from you, Bruce!  They learned it from you.

President Obama isn’t the Joker, after all.

He’s Two-Face.

Speaking into a microphone which he may not have realized was still relaying his remarks to the White House press room — where Knoller had been listening to earlier remarks that were open to the press — Mr. Obama bemoaned GOP leaders’ attempts to attach a measure to the budget bill which would have cut funding for Planned Parenthood.

“Put it in a separate bill,” the president said he told Boehner and his staff. “We’ll call it up. And if you think you can overturn my veto, try it. But don’t try to sneak this through.”

Apparently, the opposition’s publicly trying to fulfill promises to their political base is ‘sneaking,’ while privately pandering to (via some slandering) to one’s own political base is not.  Hot Air’s right: it’s striking how President Obama apparently loves the very thing that Senator Obama hated; a strong Presidency.  I guess it looks different from the inside?
