NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Speaking to American Enterprise Institute on June 21, Mitch McConnell said in reference to the IRS issue, “There might be some folks out there waiting for a hand-signed memo from President Obama to Lois Learner to turn up. Do not hold your breath.”
Joseph Waltenbaugh’s letter of June 22 indicates he is doing just that, holding his breath.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., refuses to release the full transcripts of his interview with IRS officials. Why? Because several facts have come to light:
1. No Tea Party group was denied exemption status.
2. The IRS manager was a Republican.
3. There was no link to the White House.
It’s beyond laughable that we’ve never heard Waltenbaugh’s outrage during the Bush administration’s same surveillance program. It was patriotic then but not now.
In addition, Waltenbaugh thoughtlessly lacks any contempt for the actual killers in Benghazi. He prefers to misdirect his hatred toward the president. Without merit, he embarrasses himself again.
Question: How many Republican-controlled House investigations resulted in the president’s involvement? Answer: None.
Waltenbaugh dogmatically concludes that Obama cannot be trusted. To that absurdity, people can decide with the following two quotes: “Tonight I can report to the American people and the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden,” (President Obama May 1, 2011).
“Capturing bin Laden is not a top priority use of American resources.” (President George W. Bush, Fox News, Sept. 14, 2006).
