Scandal

It looks like this is the week that the scandals blow up in the Obama administration.  Benghazi, IRS over-reach, and now the Justice Department has tapped the phone lines at the Associated Press.  Mitch McConnell says that this is just the beginning of unraveling the scandal of government intruding where it has no business intruding.
The scandal, McConnell said, extends up the chain. “The Obama effort to shut up opponents isn’t limited to the IRS,” he stated. “It applies to the FCC [Federal Communications Commission], SEC [Securities and Exchange Commission], FEC [Federal Elections Commission], HHS [Department of Health and Human Services] …. And you remember, the Obama campaign last year published a list of eight businessmen who it believed were enemies.”
Our President believes that the Benghazi scandal is a sideshow, but it looks as if he's begun spouting revisionist history of the incident. What he can't get away from is the wayback machine that remembers such things, as attributed to Michael Barone by Glenn Reynolds:
Obama continued to attribute the Benghazi attack to a protest against a video on Sept. 18 (“Letterman”), Sept. 20 (Univision) and Sept. 25 (“The View” and the United Nations). There were obvious cynical political motives for attempting to mislead voters during a closely contested presidential campaign.”
Now he says they were terror, but we all remember the Video Narrative, and film-maker Nakoula is still in jail.

I think this IRS thingy is just a way to take the heat off of the Benghazi scandal. Obama throws the IRS under the bus!!!!
