Pat Caddell said yesterday on Fox News that the reason Republican leadership hasn’t pushed for a high level investigation of the IRS for targeting the Tea Party is because they want the IRS to go after the Tea Party:
When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats, the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Party. Got it? They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. And I’m telling you the lobbying consulting class of the Republican Party or Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this!
