So, what do Obama appointees know about IRS Investigations*?

In writing about the IRS Tea Party Snooping Scandal, Ace’s CDR M asks a question about the official response which could also apply to administration’s response to the Benghazi talking points:

Should you think we’re being obsessive about this, then please tell us why the Obama team would rather. more than six months after Mitt Romney lost his bid for the White House, attack that Republican* than answer questions. And why, as even the left-leaning Yahoo! editors have observed, the president’s spokesman is becoming quite “defensive”: (more…)
