Congressman questions IRS Commissioner about Obama’s birth certificate

Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Texas questions IRS Commissioner John Koskinen about the lost Lois Lerner emails and other things:

Doggett: I believe that there has been a long-term commitment to hamstring, to encumber, to underfund the Internal Revenue Service, and discredit it, and the whole concept of progressive taxation in this country. Now let me ask you, to the seriousness of this investigation, and sir, have you ever been in Benghazi?

Koskinen: No.

Doggett: Do you know if you or Ms. Lerner have ever had any responsibility for anything having to do with Benghazi and our embassy there?

Koskinen: No.

Doggett: How about Area 51 out in Roswell, New Mexico, where all those space aliens allegedly came. Have you ever had any responsibility for that?

Koskinen: No.

Doggett: Have you ever had custody of the President’s birth certificate?

Koskinen: No.

Doggett: Well, Commissioner, I believe one of the mistakes you’ve made in dealing with the Committee today is that you did assume professionally this was a serious inquiry. I believe it is an endless conspiracy theory that’s involved here that is being exploited solely for political purposes. I don’t approve of Ms. Lerner. I don’t approve of the way the IRS handled all these matters. But I think there is a much larger cover-up issue here. And it is the desire of our Republican colleagues cover up these purported social welfare organizations that don’t want to disclose the secret corporate campaign contributions that they rely on to pollute our democracy.

H/t to Birther Report.

    See? I told you that you couldn’t look away from Birther Report! Just try to ignore them and you will fail. BR is the gift that keeps on giving.

    I haven’t seen the headline at BR yet, but I imagine it goes something like this:

    “BREAKING: Dogget goes there! Congressman connects the dots between IRS and Obama’s fake B.C.”

    I see this as one of those old timey radio ads.

    Are you a politician?
    Are you tired of where you are in life?
    Does the thought of retiring with dignity not appeal to you in the least?
    Have you decided that being grounded in reality, is for squares and Communists?
    If you answered “Yes!”, then consider giving “birtherism” a try! The sure-fire way to end your political career with an inglorious whimper!

    Nothing says it quite so good as sarcasm.

    The headline is:

    Twofer; Two Unhinged Dem Reps Brought Up Obama’s Felony ID Fraud At IRS Hearing

    And yes, they used a semicolon.

    You should have told us at the beginning that Rep Doggett is a Dem. That would have saved me the trouble of reading the transcript 3 times.

    Twofer

    I thought “twofer” meant someone espousing the “two citizen parent” theory.

    “I thought “twofer” meant someone espousing the “two citizen parent” theory.”

    I think Magic M just coined a new birther term for us.

    From now on we can use the term “twofer” as short hand for the entire birther school built around “that the POTUS must be the child of two-citizen parent legal theory”

    Well played!
