Like President Obama and Eric Holder, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller doesn’t know nuthin’ … except that the word “targeting” is beyond the pale when used to describe the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. In testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, he called it a “loaded term” and a “pejorative.”
Miller arguing that "targeting" is a "pejorative term" and disagrees that's what happened—

"I'm going to take issue with the concept of targeting, because it's a loaded term." – Miller—

Steven Miller on the word/IRS "targeting": "I think it is a term that implies something that didn't exist here."—

Miller also claimed the IRS’ only mistake was wanting to be more efficient.
Miller says that "foolish mistakes were made by people trying to be more efficient." Says was a mistake, not act of partisanship. Unreal.—

Who did the, ahem, targeting? He can’t say, but he knows the term is loaded and that’s what matters.
Who was responsible for targeting these groups? Miller "I take exception 2 targeting because it is a loaded term." .. I have no names 4 you"—

The IRS wasn’t targeting conservative groups? Has this guy been taking clown lessons from Jay Carney?
If IRS picked on groups w/"gay," "women," or "civil rights" in their names, no one could get away with saying "targeting is a loaded term."—

The revenge of PC, right there: "Sure, I murdered and cannibalised him, but, please, 'murder' and 'cannibalised' are pejorative terms."—

Targeting is not a pejorative term. It's a pejorative action.—

OK, so if Miller objects to “targeting,” what’s the acceptable term?
