As Twitchy reported, IRS official Lois Lerner refused to testify before the House Oversight Committee yesterday.  She did not, however, refuse to show her arrogance: That was on full display.

Hmm. Speaking of hubris and idiocy …

The fabulous Jammie Wearing Fool swiftly also noted that apt comparison:

It’s as if having to testify before Congress is just so beneath her.

Wonder where she gets that from?

Go check out the hilarious photos and see for yourself.

Those Twitter users aren’t the only ones who noticed. Hubris and smug condescension was all the buzz during Ms. Lerner’s appearance before the committee.


She learned from President Hubris.

    She figures ‘works for him.’

  • vetgal1970

    She may have mirrored Obama’s arrogance in body language, but to my ear she sounded every bit like Hillary when she delivered her carefully crafted ‘statement’. It sounded exactly like the speech Hillary delivered about Benghazi, especially the part when she insisted the US had ‘Nothing’ to do with that awful insulting youtube video.

    I found myself wishing I had been waiting in the hall when that witch flounced out of the chamber after proclaiming her right to not incriminate herself in the wholesale deprivation of OUR rights.

    Its the same look a rancher gets when he walks into the cattle barn.

      While the rancher is smelling bull droppings, Lois Lerner and Obama are smelling their own BS.

    I wouldn’t make any predictions yet. After all, she’s been getting away with this **** all of her career. They are the Untouchables.

    On the same topic, if you haven’t seen the exchange between IRS Commish Doug Shulman and The Most Awesome Rep. Trey Gowdy, check out the following and pay particular attention to Shulman’s facial expressions. You don’t need the body language expert to read the contempt he’s obviously feeling:

    • vetgal1970

      You don’t even need to hear the words, just watch the progression of his face crapping that oil sheen.

    • Jason Call

      Thank you, Greenville and Spartanburg, SC for Rep. Gowdy.

    • shimauma

      did you catch Doug saying “I inherited” like 3 times. As if he couldn’t change how things in the IRS works because “it was always done that way”. The whole IRS needs to be disbanded and made defunct. Too bad we don’t have a congress with the balls to pull that off.

    I found Miller (poodle head) and Shulman plenty arrogant as well. There are the people *we* taxpayers are paying (in Lerner’s case something like $750k in the last few years, including “bonuses”) to work *for* us and they treat us with contempt.

  • jetch

    as the lefties like to say (when it’s convenient), power corrupts. she was a leader in a powerful government organization, and she abused that power against people who were not able to defend themselves. she is despicable!

    if lefties were true to their convictions (they’re not), they would want her fired more than conservatives do.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          I know you were… but Detiorata seemed, in my mind, to go so much better for the Obama Administration…

  • MissJames

    She’s arrogant because the left continues to make excuses for her,( for the IRS and for the DOJ and the Benghazi cover up) . “It was a mistake” They were overburdened” “The Republican budget was too small” “Creating reams of extra paperwork with over-reaching questions was more efficient “.
    When Bush wanted the Patriot Act,when the govt failed to act after Hurricane Katrina,even when Bush led us into a war in Iraq, Republicans spoke up .Hiw own Secretary of State disagreed with extending the war to Iraq ,IIRC. Our Presidents and their Administrations are not gods . You can remain a supporter while disagreeing on an issue,but the Dems seem to be of one mind and that is ,this Administration can do no wrong. I think some of them actually believe it,too.
    TG Rep. Gowdy is on the ball and ready to speak up. Wish we had more like him.

  • froggy19510

    Obama did not create that pose and neither did this guy but same arrogance in all three people.

    • Mark81150

      Yeah.. my first thought too… not like even high school history classes missed that piece of history, at least back in the 70’s.. do they even still teach the history of the world in the 30’s and 40’s?

      Can’t Obama’s staff grow the stones to show him who he’s looking like when he does that pose?

    Don’t know why she would be so arrogant, the whole mess is like a 2nd rate burglary. Even a GS-12 could have come up with a better scheme to delay approvals than to ask what is the content of your prayers. This is like 1st grade work, where do they get these people from?

  • Mark81150

    Not the first to use the nose a mile in the air stance..


    and probably not the last..

    What IS it with the left and their bombastic poses? You’d think Obama was going to intervene in Libya or something?.. oh wait.. or Lerner was going to crush her fellow citizens civil rights…. eh… uhm… never mind..

  • Mark81150

    The arrogance of the elitist ruling bureaucracy class… “you peasants bow, how DARE you question me”.. used to crushing people like bugs for political amusement, and so certain the system will give her cover as she does it.

    Once upon a time, her kind threw women and children to lions in a Pitt,… and laughed at the carnage.. Rome fell in no small part, because of her kind..

    She only recalls the Constitution when it’s works in her favor. Otherwise, it goes right out the window.

  • EvilRealist

    This level of arrogance displayed by Barry, et al cannot be allowed to survive. Even if we arrest a few of them, the rest will live on and continue to thrive like a colony of roaches. Locking up a few random vermin won’t solve the problem; they need to be exterminated, one and all, stricken from the earth so they may never breed and thrive again.

  • Abram Yarbro

    The term is “Duping Delight.” When liars think they are getting away with their lies, there are moments when their real emotions bleed through their behavior. They think they are getting away with their deception and the thrill of it cannot be completely masked.

  • Otter2

    Lately Obama and Carney have resembled Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat is simply grumpy, this is the “let them eat cake” and “how dare you question me” look.

    Liars hate to get caught, just look at that sociopath Jodi Arias.

    When Goudy was protesting and said she’d forfeited her 5th amendments rights not to testify by making the statement previous to envoking it, the camera briefly showed her face and for a flicker of a second you could see in her poker face an “oh, shit” look in her eye.

    Sick people like her need to be committed. Not paid outrageous salaries when they have no idea how to do the job and then be pius, repugnant, arrogant, and anal. She has no place in the USA. Deport her to a small island, and allow here to know what it is to suffer like the people she condemned. Damn, she pisses me off to the max.

  • irishgirl91

    They go to the same schools, join the same groups and seek out the same types of employment (gov’t, acadame, journalism). It is no surprise they can get away with saying they were never told to do anything. They know their marching orders from birth. She honestly doesn’t see what she did wrong she is just annoyed she has to defend it to us plebes

  • Esau’s Message

    The federal government, heck all government, is a socialist economy that exists within our larger economy, like some sort of harmful parasite. The beauty of that socialist economy is that plugged-in people, like Lois Lerner, never ever are required to show responsibility, held accountable, disciplined or fired. They consider themselves invulnerable. They may be right. Let’s teach them otherwise. Fire her.

  • David Johnson

    There both just looking down on us. The dirty peasants they have to tolerate.
