The Obama administration claims it wants to ensure that the rank political abuse perpetrated by the Internal Revenue Service is never repeated. Ask Donald McGahn how that’s going.
Mr. McGahn is a Republican appointee to the Federal Election Commission, an agency with every bit as much potential for partisan meddling as the IRS. Due to leave the agency soon, Mr. McGahn’s parting gift is a campaign to rein in an out-of-control FEC bureaucracy. But the left is fighting that oversight and is determined to keep power in the hands of unaccountable staff.
From The Root:
John McCain once famously called members of the media his “base,” a statement on the fact that even when he was at odds with his own party, he could count on the media to give the “maverick” a fair shake. But according to reports, McCain felt that his base turned on him in favor of a newer, younger political celebrity by the name of Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton’s campaign also accused the media of having something in common with Obama Girl by having a crush on then-candidate Obama.
Well, whatever love affair did exist between the media and the president has come to an abrupt end, and like a lot of breakups, this one involves allegations of betrayal and is increasingly acrimonious. In simple terms, if there ends up being a loser in this divorce, it will most certainly be President Obama.
