    Second official out at IRS as Obama appoints acting chief - Jennifer Epstein and Lauren French - POLITICO.com

    As the president announced his pick to replace the Internal Revenue Service’s acting commissioner for the remainder of the fiscal year, the embattled agency announced in a Thursday statement that a second senior official would be leaving the IRS.

    Joseph Grant, the commissioner of the agency’s tax exempt and government entities division, will retire on June 3. Grant oversees the division that gave extra scrutiny to conservative groups seeking nonprofit status. His resignation follows that of acting commissioner Steven Miller, who is stepping down at the request of the Obama administration.

    Grant was only elevated to the division commissioner position on May 8, according to a separate agency press release. He was previously a deputy director.

    As division commissioner, he outranked Lois Lerner, the IRS official who sparked the scandal last week by acknowledging that the agency wrongly targeted conservative groups applying for nonprofit status. He wrote the agency’s official response to an inspector general report released earlier this week which broadly condemned the agency’s management.

    He acknowledged that the program was a mistake but insisted it wasn’t the result of political bias among agency employees.

    “We believe the front-line career employees that made the decisions acted out of a desire for efficiency and not out of any political or partisan viewpoint,” he wrote in the agency’s response to the inspector general’s report.
    promoted 8 days ago, fired today?

    and you're STILL not embarrassed?

    that's ok, we've got plenty of time...

    After 7 years his approval rating has finally climbed up to the 47% that you think is so poor for Obama. And that coincided with the opening of his library when he was getting a lot of favorable press.

    Lets see.....now I expect to see a reply from you saying how great the 47% is for GWB and how horrible a 47% is for Obama....because we all know that that's how you roll.....ROTFLMAO.....
    Your'e easily entertained and any criticism thrown at Bush during his tenure was based on empty left wing narratives and BS talking points.

    You guys cried and bitched about his lies and then you elected a LIAR.

    You guys cried and whined about his incompetence, and then elected a INCOMPETENT.

    So spare us your'e irrational assertions and your Obama mitigation. For all of the Bush blame and tired talking points you guys bring up your'e in the same breadth hypocritically defending a guy who is 10 times worse.

    No, no they were NOT "clear thinking" voters, who after 4 years of economic destruction, massive structural debt and a Central Bank stuck on QE just to keep BO's new debt cheap first believed the left wing " Bane " talking points and second weren't intelligent enough to objectively research their Candidate.

    Hell yes they were full on morons, as we are currently paying for their intellectual limitations and laziness.

    Or maybe the Right just fails to appreciate what a smashing success it has been in the South because to acknowledge that success would be to also acknowledge that it has become, essentially, a regional party.......................

    Seriously ?

    Your'e attributing the stock markets rise due to record low interest rates that are being kept low with perpetual Central Bank QE to Obama's "success " ?

    Do you even know what your'e talking about ? As Wall Street get's rich and the middle class shrinks to record lows as more and more people are becoming dependent on the Government.

    The FED is PAYING BANKS INTEREST ON THEIR RECORD RESERVES to influence short term interest rates. To keep interest rates next to nothing as now banks get to keep our money for free and get paid to hold massive amounts of liquidity that they ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO HOLD.

    Barrack Obama, paying banks.....to be a bank since 2008.

    Your post are typical of the left wing around here. Short on substance and understanding as only the perpetually uninformed could now be bragging about the Stock Markets rise.

    Hey, if Bernanke stops QE tomorrow , Monday would be one of the largest sell off's of bonds and assets we've ever experienced in this country. That would be followed by a acute rise in interest rates as our bonds would be all but worthless.

    Obama's Central Bank appointee is in the middle of one of the most destructive monetary policies in History. You have no idea how sick our economy has to be to justify perpetual bottom of the barrel interest rates.

    Oh, but your'e bragging ? LOL !
