Obama's banana-republic

Obama: "Reject Voices That Warn About Government Tyranny"

Sure, so he can more easily get away with using the IRS to punish his political enemies:
Was the White House involved in the IRS's targeting of conservatives? No investigation needed to answer that one. Of course it was.

... [Frank] VanderSloot is the Obama target who in 2011 made a sizable donation to a group supporting Mitt Romney.  In April 2012, an Obama campaign website named and slurred eight Romney donors. It tarred Mr. VanderSloot as a "wealthy individual" with a "less-than-reputable record." Other donors were described as having been "on the wrong side of the law."

... Mr. VanderSloot, who had never been audited before, was subject to three in the four months after Mr. Obama teed him up for such scrutiny.

... according to Mr. Obama, he is "outraged" and "angry" that the IRS looked into the very groups and individuals that he spent years claiming were shady, undemocratic, even lawbreaking. After all, he expects the IRS to "operate with absolute integrity." Even when he does not. ...
Mark Steyn:
... Most of those who’ve caught the eye of the IRS share nothing in common with [Mr. VanderSloot] other than his political preferences. They’re nobodies — ordinary American citizens guilty of no crime except that of disagreeing with the ruling party. ... Is that banana-republic enough for you yet?

Didn't he also target a Catholic group in 2010?

Probably and he's been targeting Catholics ever since, via Obamacare.
