REMINDER: In 2009, President Obama “Joked” About Having The IRS Audit His Enemies.

THIS NEW YORK TIMES PIECE ON THE OBAMACARE DEBACLE — WHICH IS CLEARLY MEANT TO BE SYMPATHETIC — REVEALS AN INEPT AND OUT-OF-TOUCH WHITE HOUSE. Key bit: “The story of how the administration confronted one of the most perilous moments in Mr. Obama’s presidency — drawn from documents and from interviews with dozens of administration officials, lawmakers, insurance executives and tech experts working inside the ‘war room’ — reveals an insular White House that did not initially appreciate the magnitude of its self-inflicted wounds, and sought help from trusted insiders as it scrambled to protect Mr. Obama’s image.”

Initially? According to the story it took them a month to start taking the problem seriously.

MARK STEYN ON THOSE SUSPICIOUS IRS AUDITS: Dissent Is The Highest Form Of Tax Bracket.
A couple of weeks back, cancer patient Bill Elliot, in a defiant appearance on Fox News, discussed the cancelation of his insurance and what he intended to do about it. He’s now being audited.

Insurance agent C Steven Tucker, who quaintly insists that the whimsies of the hyper-regulatory bureaucracy do not trump your legal rights, saw the interview and reached out to Mr Elliot to help him. And he’s now being audited.

As the Instapundit likes to remind us, Barack Obama has “joked” publicly about siccing the IRS on his enemies. With all this coincidence about, we should be grateful the President is not (yet) doing prison-rape gags.

Obama’s a putz, and the people at the IRS who are implementing this should have their names, and their boss’s names, and their grandbosses’ names publicized.
