Do you think the White House is behind the IRS thing

I wasn't too worried about the IRS thing until I saw something about it on CNN this morning where employees were saying they were being thrown under the bus because the White House was behind the unfair targetting from the IRS of political groups. I didn't see a whole lot of concern until now. I am wondering what everyone else thinks about all this stuff going on. Shouldn't someone not related to either political party investigate this?

I didn't pay a lot of attention either at first but now that several news sources are reporting the same thing, it has caught my eye. I do think it is something that really needs to be looked into especially since there are fingers pointing at the White House. It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out over the next few weeks.

It does seem that the situation is a little deeper than when it was first reported. I do think you have to be careful however when watching the news and consider sources carefully. NBC is ignoring the situation completely but then again they usually do if it involves anything at all to do with something republican; FOXNews is doing their best to find something to impeach the President over and tend to very much overreact to everything so steer clear of those two.

Like the poster above stated, it will be interesting to see how this situation ends.
