Obama Dismisses IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups as Non-Issue, Complains About "So-Called Progressives" Who Thought It Was

President Obama rejected the notion that the IRS' targeting of Tea Party groups was illegal — or even improper — during his interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Thursday.

Obama was at American University to sell his flailing health care law to the young people upon which the insurance exchanges heavily rely. As promised, Matthews allowed him to make his pitch with no tough questions or pushback.
