If you asked me what’s one of my wildest political dreams, I’d tell you about the one where Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is sworn in as the next United States attorney general. It’s a long shot, sure. And for now, I’m fine with him being a fired up conservative lion in Congress.
Less than 24 hours after he gave IRS Commissioner John Koskinen an epic tongue lashing, gangsta Gowdy took to the House floor Thursday and delivered an impassioned speech blasting the IRS.
“There’s a hunger in this country for things that binds us together,” Gowdy said. “Americans agree that the IRS should never target citizens. Americans agree that the government should tell us the truth.”
“The IRS has offered eight different explanations for targeting out fellow citizens,” he continued. “If we, Madam Speaker, changed our story to the government eight different times, we would be called – inmates. We can’t lie to government, therefore the government shouldn’t lie to us.”
Just before his time expired, Gowdy threw a punch at Barry Obama, saying “No president should ever say there’s not a smidgen of corruption while an investigation is ongoing!”
