The Obama administration has been replete with policy incompetence, managerial incompetence and intentional deception of the American people. As I am a doddering old curmudgeon who defaults to cynicism as frequently as I draw breath, I am not as much surprised as I am disappointed. This was not the change we voted for.
The ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee said Wednesday he will support President Obama's nominee to become the next head of the scandal-plagued IRS — an announcement that bodes well for John Koskinen's confirmation by the Senate.

While the White House continues to struggle with technical issues on the health care insurance website, the Internal Revenue Service is experiencing its own glitches costing millions.
Investigators think the nation's tax collection agency could be missing out on an annual $31 million payday because it's incorrectly revoking late fees it assesses to corporate individuals.
With his trademark grin and natural charm, President Obama knows how to connect with an audience. So it was when he gave the commencement address to Arizona State University's class of 2009, thrilling a crowd of 60,000 assembled in Sun Devil Stadium. Looking back on his remarks today, his words are much less amusing.
President Obama Thursday portrayed the IRS targeting of tea-party groups as an innocent attempt at efficiency by bureaucrats that went awry, and he expressed surprise that people were outraged by the episode.
As I was brushing my teeth this morning, I noticed that I had placed a large bottle on the toothpaste tube, accidentally squeezing paste onto the bathroom countertop. It got me thinking: How can we hope to put the mess that is Obamacare back inside its "tube"?
In early November, Bill Elliot appeared on Megyn Kelly's Fox News Channel show to complain about the rock and a hard place he found himself in owing to President Obama's health care scheme.
The House's chief investigator says the FBI is stonewalling his inquiry into whether the agency and the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative group True the Vote for special scrutiny, and Rep.
