Lerner called conservatives “whackos” and “a**holes”

lerner email 7.30.14

Shocking new emails released today by U.S. Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee shows Ms. Lerner’s mistreatment of conservative groups was driven by her ‘personal hostility toward conservatives.’

The November 9, 2012 email exchange with an unnamed colleague – the person’s name was redacted in the copy Camp’s staff released publicly – took place while Lerner was in the United Kingdom.

‘Overheard some ladies talking about American[s] today,’ Lerner wrote. ‘According to them we’ve bankrupted ourselves and a[re] through. We’ll never be able to pay off our debt and are going down the tubes.’

Turning sarcastic, Lerner pounced on her British acquaintances.

The conversation turned ugly when Lerner’s writing companion let loose first on conservatives.

‘Well, you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP,’ the person replied. ‘The US is through; too many foreigners sucking the teat; time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end.’

‘The right wing radio shows are scary to listen to.’

‘Great,’ Lerner wrote back. ‘Maybe we are through if there are that many a**holes.’

‘And I’m talking about the hosts of the shows,’ came the reply. ‘The callers are rabid.’

In the final message of the exchange, Lerner wrote that ‘we don’t need to worry about [illegal] alien terrorists. It’s our own crazies that will take us down.’

Camp says this latest information further warrants his call for Attorney General Eric Holder to name a special counsel to investigate the IRS targeting scandal.

Reacting to amnesty

There’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it.

Illegal-Immigration

Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants for a very long time, whether it’s been called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word.

But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is.

Past presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood that it’s Congress that needs to deal with this for the most part. Until now.

Now we have a president who has the novel idea of completely ignoring the public during his lame duck years. Most presidents are hampered in their power during lame duck time, and they don’t want to do anything to hurt their party’s standing with the public and therefore their party’s election chances. Obama, again, has the novel idea to ignore the public and hurt his party in the short run for enormous gains in the longer run: a demographic that will be reliably Democratic and will insure the party’s hegemony (not to mention his “legacy” as a transformative president) . At least, that’s the calculation.

All the Democratic impeachment chatter (“watch out, the evil Republicans are planning to impeach me, aren’t they mean and aren’t they silly?”) is both an attempt to head outrage off at the pass and to pre-characterize it as inappropriate and hateful, and a simultaneous tacit acknowledgement of the tyrannical nature of what Obama is contemplating.

I’m with Patterico on this:
