RUSH: The Republican Party didn’t get into gear on this. It was Landmark Legal Foundation and some other legal groups that persisted in sending letters to the inspector general and the IRS demanding that this be looked into. This is not something easy. It has not been easy to get to this point. It was like extracting teeth, however you want to characterize it. I don’t want to make the mistake of saying the media is on our side in this.
The media is not on our side. The media’s always gonna be on the side of the Democrats; they’re always gonna be on the side of Obama. Their effort here is to essentially limit the damage to the IRS as much as they can. There are just certain things they know, the media, that the public is not gonna accept no matter how the media treats it. So they get in there and limit the damage as much as possible, because the IRS has to remain functioning and dominant in their world.
