Rubio Calls for IRS Commissioner to Resign?

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) darling and frontrunner for the party’s 2016 presidential nod is proving – yet again – how he’s not ready for prime time. While trying to demonstrate how tough he is, and how much he’s “on top of things”, Senator Marco Rubio’s reportedly sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew strongly urging Lew, and President Obama, to “demand the IRS Commissioner’s resignation, effectively immediately.” There’s just one problem, there is no IRS Commissioner.

Fact is the last IRS commissioner, Douglas Shulman, was appointed by President George W. Bush in March of 2008 and resigned in November, and furthermore, considering the rate at which the GOTP has stonewalled everything in the Senate it’s very unlikely the President could get anyone appointed to the position, perhaps that’s why he hasn’t even tried?

Poor Marco, so clueless; is he really so misinformed that he didn’t know, or is the Senator’s staff so full of misanthropic misfits that no one bothered to check before making their boss look like a moron? At any rate, the junior senator from Florida signed the letter, and, as Harry Truman might say, “The buck stops there.”

Bush says he’s “comfortable” with his legacy?

Former President George W. Bush has said during a recent interview with the Dallas Morning News he’s comfortable with his decision-making regarding the Iraq War.

“I’m confident the decisions were made the right way,” Bush explained. “It’s easy to forget what life was like when the decision was made.”

Actually, no it’s not; we were recovering from the 9-11 attack, troops in Afghanistan were closing in on Osama Bin Laden, our nation’s debt and deficit were nowhere near where you left them and U.S. troops hadn’t started torturing prisoners.

“I’m comfortable with what I did,” he said. “I’m comfortable with who I am.”

Well, that makes two people I suppose, you and Dick Cheney.

Bush’s legacy will be one of abject failure; he failed to keep American’s safe, ignoring intelligence reports prior to the attacks on 9-11; he failed to get Osama Bin Laden, and probably allowed him to escape into Pakistan when he invaded Iraq; he led the country off a fiscal cliff into the worse economic downturn since the Great Depression. He’s not just a failure however, he’s a delusional failure, there’s no other explanation for being “comfortable” with one of the worse presidencies in United States history.
