What to make of Obama's comments about the IRS scandal?

Fox BusinessYou’ve got this back office, and they’re going after the Tea Party. Well, it turned out, no, Congress had passed a crummy law that didn’t give people guidance in terms of what it was they were trying to do. They did it poorly and stupidly,” he said.

President Obama went on to say there was never a plot to go after conservative groups.

“The truth of the matter is that there was not some big conspiracy there. They were trying to sort out these conflicting demands. You don’t want all this money pouring through non-for- profits, but you also want to make sure everybody is being treated fairly,” he said.

He said this the day before two facts came to light:

1) Judicial Watch received emails proving that the IRS, including Lerner, sought to audit individual donors to conservative groups, including using a tax which has been invalidated by the Supreme Court for 30 years.

2) The Government Accountability Office issued a report indicating that controls at the IRS to prevent political targeting are deficient.

He knew that was happening and so he decided to get out in front of the issue with his big lie.
