Obama's Enemy List; Un-American Dirty Tricks

In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, by Kim Strassel, the paper detailed the story of Romney campaign donor Frank Vandersloot who has found himself under attack, first from the President's campaign, then finding out about a private investigator digging for dirt in his hometown, then just weeks later, receiving audit letters from the IRS and Department of Labor.

Since he's never been investigated before, you'd be a fool not to see that the US Government is now attacking and slurring supporters of the political opposition.  You'd also be a fool to not suspect complicity all of the way to the White House.  This must not be un-answered!!

Now for the quote:
An Obama campaign website in April sent a message to those who'd donate to the president's opponent. It called out Mr. VanderSloot and seven other private donors by name and occupation and slurred them as having "less-than-reputable" records. (my comment:  that's called "libel" in normal parlance!)
Mr. VanderSloot has since been learning what it means to be on a presidential enemies list. Just 12 days after the attack, the Idahoan found an investigator digging to unearth his divorce records. This bloodhound—a recent employee of Senate Democrats—worked for a for-hire opposition research firm.
Now Mr. VanderSloot has been targeted by the federal government. In a letter dated June 21, he was informed that his tax records had been "selected for examination" by the Internal Revenue Service. The audit also encompasses Mr. VanderSloot's wife, and not one, but two years of past filings (2008 and 2009).
Mr. VanderSloot, who is 63 and has been working since his teens, says neither he nor his accountants recall his being subject to a federal tax audit before. He was once required to send documents on a line item inquiry into his charitable donations, which resulted in no changes to his taxes. But nothing more—that is until now, shortly after he wrote a big check to a Romney-supporting Super PAC.   
 Two weeks after receiving the IRS letter, Mr. VanderSloot received another---this one from the Department of Labor. He was informed it would be doing an audit of workers he employs on his Idaho-based cattle ranch under the federal visa program for temporary agriculture workers.

"It is un-American and irresponsible for a president to target individual, law-abiding citizens for political retribution, and it is inconceivable that any U.S. agency would stoop to do the bidding for this campaign's silliness," says Louis Bacon, an investor and conservationist who also made the Obama list.

This must be investigated and questions must be answered. After all, are we stooping to become like Putin's Russia?? Comparisons to Nixon are bad enough!

Shameful! As I've said before, the true "color" of Obama and his roots in thuggish "Chicago-Style" politics is more and more clear.  Expect more evidence to emerge as Romney remains competitive in the campaign.
