A funny thing happened last week while all the cable nets were constantly yammering about the results from a Florida trial.

Bombshell testimoney came out concerning the IRS/Tea Party flap.

Seems as if the Tea Party and conservatives were getting special treatment by their federal government but now the kind of speacial treatment you want.

The Daily Caller reports, "The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize Tea Party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status."

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012.

Wilkins' boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins' office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit "additional comments on the draft guidance" for approving or denying Tea Party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general's report.

Let's see if the mainstream media has the guts to get back on this.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

The White House has begun making it's edited visitors logs open. That's where the real news is. Politico reports that we are being scammed by the administration. The Center for Public integrity agrees.

Closer and closer it gets to Obama.. and so he keeps saying, "Oh look, a squirrel!"

After the IRS he gave a Zimmerman speech.

Now he says he will give a speech on the economy... after the Detroit crash.
