    You can tell this guy was an instructor in Alinsky tactics.

    The Weekly Standard reported:
    A lawyer for Koch Industries now tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the administration may have crossed a line by revealing tax information about Koch Industries. According to Mark Holden, senior vice president and general counsel of Koch Industries, a senior Obama administration official told reporters at an August 27 on-the-record background briefing on corporate taxes:
    So in this country we have partnerships, we have S corps, we have LLCs, we have a series of entities that do not pay corporate income tax. Some of which are really giant firms, you know Koch Industries is a multibillion dollar businesses. So that creates a narrower base because we’ve literally got something like 50 percent of the business income in the U.S. is going to businesses that don’t pay any corporate income tax. They point out [in the report] you could review the boundary between corporate and non-corporate taxation as a way to broaden the base.
    Holden tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that this quotation from a senior administration official “came to our attention from different avenues. We are very concerned about why this would be said about us, particularly in this setting. We are concerned where this information would have been obtained from. We also are concerned in light of recent events that we have been singled out by the government and others as a campaign against us because of our political views.”




    Glenn Reynolds adds: Hey, next Obama will be joking about tax audits for people who disrespect him.

    If Koch Industries is an S corporation, it had to file for that status and it has to report same to many third parties: owners, bankers, suppliers, some customers, etc. It could hardly be called a "secret".

    Get a grip, Capitalist.

    The bottom line is the bottom line. President Obama did bail out our financial industry, and did so while being bitch slapped by jerk off tea baggers. Only a complete fucking idiot would claim that someone who put his ass on the line to save capitalism is a socialist.

    If you're looking for logic in their criticisms, you'll be looking for a long time.

    In fairness to Capitalist, the tax status of various legal persons is a complex area of law. It is easy to get confuzzled....but seriously, lay offa the right wing blogosphere, buddy.

    Tax Audits Are No Laughing Matter

    A president shouldn't even joke about abusing IRS power.


    By GLENN HARLAN REYNOLDS

    Barack Obama owes his presidency in no small part to the power of rhetoric. It's too bad he doesn't appreciate the damage that loose talk can do to America's tax system, even as exploding federal deficits make revenues more important than ever.
    At his Arizona State University commencement speech last Wednesday, Mr. Obama noted that ASU had refused to grant him an honorary degree, citing his lack of experience, and the controversy this had caused. He then demonstrated ASU's point by remarking, "I really thought this was much ado about nothing, but I do think we all learned an important lesson. I learned never again to pick another team over the Sun Devils in my NCAA brackets. . . . President [Michael] Crowe and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS."
    Read the rest on the evil right wing blogosphere here buddy...


    He's a funny guy............:eusa_hand:

    If you long for war mongering babykillers to return to power I imagine it does.
