Do the establishment Republicans want the IRS to target the Tea Party?

February 17, 2014

 Do the establishment Republicans actually secretly approve of the IRS’s targeting of conservatives and Tea Party organizations? Is this why the establishment Republicans seem to be unwilling to call for an independent investigation into this scandal?

  Pat Caddell, who is a Democratic pollster, thinks so:

“The establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties,” Caddell told Fox News on Sunday.

“When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe that it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats,” Caddell said, “the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Parties. Got it?”

Caddell said the GOP establishment is happy to have the IRS take the Tea Party down a notch. 

“Because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold and I’m telling you  the lobbying consulting class of the Republican party and Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Parties, and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this,” he said.

    Of course it is quite possible that Pat Caddell is simply trying to throw more fuel on the fire in an attempt to push the Tea Party and the establishment away from each other to further divide the country and help the Democrats win in 2014 and 2016, but I happen to believe he is spot on.

  If you are a regular reader of America’s Watchtower the last paragraph should sound familiar to you for it is something I have been writing about for quite some time now. The establishment talks a good game in order to give the appearance of being outraged but yet their actions, or more accurately their lack of action, show us they really are not all that upset that non-establishment people are being targeted by the IRS for they feel these groups are a threat to their power and they would much prefer if these groups ceased to exist.

  If you still do not feel as if this is true than perhaps you have forgotten that John Boehner personally punished conservative Republicans for not toeing the party line by removing them from influential financial and budget committees, while threatening others with the same fate if they did not heed his warnings.

    They can’t win elections without the conservatives but they want the conservatives to sit down and stay quiet. That’s what the PSP (Perpetually Stupid Party) thinks is a winning strategy. Idiots!

      They believe if they kill of primary challenges that the conservatives will still vote for them because they will have no other choice. They didn’t learn from 2012 when conservative said to hell with it and stayed home, so yes they are the stupid party!

    I will insert this here:
    Hope it comes out alright. This is the moral type person that Illinois seems to be putting into office (I will leave it up to you to read which party it is). He was bad back when he was here and apparently he has not changed his colors. Is it any wonder that this Administration is “questionable”? How many are from Illinois?

      I saw this story yesterday and I had to laugh. Not because it was funny but because it somehow isn’t surprising. This is the seat that Obama eventually won and I find it curious that he is now going to jail again where he will have no voice. Coincidence? I don’t believe in coincidences any more.
