Mark Levin Blasts Obama: ‘Flat-Out, Bald-Faced Lie’ That He Knew Nothing About IRS Targeting


Conservative radio host Mark Levin is very skeptical of the idea that President Obama had absolutely no idea about the IRS tea party targeting before the story broke in the news mere weeks ago. Levin declared adamantly that it is a “flat-out, bald-faced lie” that Obama didn’t know beforehand, citing prior reports by a few conservative news outlets picking up on the news well before the 2012 presidential election.

Levin said, “I don’t believe for two seconds that Obama wasn’t aware of this.” He played the audio of Obama saying he learned about it from news reports, and immediately shot back by saying tea partiers in early 2012 voiced concerns the IRS was targeting them. He cited the Washington Examiner, CNS News, and Fox News as examples of outlets that picked up on the news much earlier, as well as himself, saying if he knew about it, Obama must have known.

“It is a flat-out lie that he first learned about the targeting of conservative and tea party groups on that Friday a few weeks ago when it became public. It had been public long before that!”

Levin replayed the clip of Obama and reiterated that the president told a “flat-out, bald-faced lie.” He also tore into the “diabolical Carl Levin,” who “prodded many investigations” into conservative groups along with Al Franken and others. Levin called them “good little fascists” who “just wanted to put their opposition out of business.” Levin also had some harsh words for the Republicans over their “incompetence and timidity” in waiting so long to pursue this scandal.
