Once again Barack Obama proves the old adage that democrats will lie when the truth would work better.
Wednesday evening President Obama talked to the American people, saying he was “angry” about the IRS attacking Conservatives, and announced his scapegoat, Steve Miller, a man who we learned investigated those who opposed Bill Clinton back in the 1990s.
