Austin Plane Crash: Is It Obama’s Fault?

Guantanamo has to be shut down, so goes the liberal logic, because its very existence so antagonizes al Qaeda types that it is used as a recruiting tool for terror. Making the world a more dangerous and unsafe place. Indeed, President Obama himself has repeated this “logic” endlessly.

Well, OK then.

First news reports out of Austin, Texas are telling us that the pilot of the plane, in apparent antagonized mode, set fire to his house before flying a plane into a building that houses — yes — the IRS.  The very same IRS that, using Obama-think, is itself the Guantanamo-style symbol of bad things in store for the American taxpayer at a time when everyone is saying taxes will have to be raised.

Ergo, President Obama and his liberal allies will surely now concede that their push to spend trillions, a push that they intend to use as an excuse resulting in higher taxes, is responsible for sending this apparently crazed pilot plunging into this Austin IRS headquarters.

So the question, of course: how soon will the Obama Administration shut down the IRS because it has become such a potent symbol that it serves as a magnet for those who wish to do harm to Americans?

If this incident does in fact show that someone with a grudge against the IRS did this — does this mean this incident is Obama’s fault? 

Just asking.
