George Will: IRS targeting scandal on par with Watergate, Iran-Contra

Fox News contributor George Will said Monday the IRS targeting of conservative groups was one of the three biggest political scandals in the last 40 years.

Watergate and Iran-Contra were the other two major scandals, according to Will. His comments were in response to President Obama’s Super Bowl Sunday interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. 

In the interview, Obama called the targeting “boneheaded decisions” and said there was “not even a smidgen of corruption.” 

Will says it's evident Obama knows the media is not closely investigating the scandal. 

"This is not being perused and the president knows that," Will said. "Hence his sense of weariness and boredom as he discussed this with Bill O’Reilly."
