Karl Rove speaking on Fox Monday morning about what would have happened if the IRS had targeted liberals for scrutiny during the Bush administration:

We'd have every major liberal newspaper in America calling for investigation ending in impeachment. It'd be leading the evening news. We'd have have every group that had liberal or progressive tendencies demanding answers and marching on the White House. And leaders of Congress, Democrats in Congress, demanding to have answers. It'd be a nightmare at the Bush White House had this been done on our watch.

Poor Republicans. Always the victim of hypocritical liberals. Except:

Stepping up its probe of allegedly improper campaigning by churches, the Internal Revenue Service on Friday ordered a liberal Pasadena parish to turn over all the documents and e-mails it produced during the 2004 election year with references to political candidates.

All Saints Episcopal Church and its rector, the Rev. Ed Bacon, have until Sept. 29 to present the sermons, newsletters and electronic communications.

The IRS investigation was triggered by an antiwar sermon delivered by its former rector, the Rev. George F. Regas, at the church two days before the 2004 presidential election. The summons even requests utility bills to establish costs associated with hosting Regas' speech. Bacon was ordered to testify before IRS officials Oct. 11.

Maybe it's just me, but somehow I'm forgetting the part about where George W. Bush got impeached because the IRS investigated liberals under his watch. That doesn't mean we should ignore what happened under President Obama, but Rove's baseless hyperventilating is a reminder to keep things in perspective. Of course, with Darrell Issa in charge of the House Government Oversight committee, fat chance of that happening.

George W Bush majored in political science at Harvard and look how he turned out. So, did Robert Gates.

IRS Ends 2-Year Probe Of NAACP's Tax Status

Angela Ciccolo, an NAACP lawyer, noted that although Bond's remarks were made in July 2004, the investigation did not begin until October, just when the NAACP was attempting to register voters. "The timing of the investigation is critical," she said.

Tell that to Obama. Seems I remember him throwing a few billion towards building some new nuke plants.

When additional electric power is necessary, nuclear power will return. In fact, if existing nuclear plants are shut down, the power supply will be seriously strained.

Insanity: US Approves Bee Death Pesticide as EU Bans It

May 13, 2013

Corporate politics is business as usual inside the United States, as I am once again shocked to report the EPA has sided with industry lobbyists over public health in approving a highly dangerous pesticide that the European Union recently decided to ban over fears of environmental devastation. Not only have neonicotinoid pesticides been linked repeatedly to mass bee deaths, also known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), but the continued use of such pesticides threatens other aspects of nature (and humans) as well.

What’s even more amazing is that the decision not only comes after the EU publicly discussed the major dangers surrounding the use of the pesticides, but after the USDA released a report surrounding the continued honeybee deaths and the related effects — a report in which they detailed pesticides to be a contributing factor. Just the impact on the honeybees alone, and we now know that these pesticides are killing aquatic life and subsequently the birds that feed upon them, amounts to a potential $200 billion in global damages per year. We’re talking about the devastation of over 100 crops, from apples to avocados and plums.

And there’s countless scientists and a large number of environmental science groups speaking out on this. The EPA has no lack of information the subject. And sure, there are other contributing factors to bee deaths, there’s no question about that. We have an environment right now being hit with Monsanto’s Roundup even in residential areas, we have chemical rain, we have insane amounts of EMF — but it’s pretty clear that neonicotinoid pesticides are at least a major contributing factor. And beyond that, they have no place in the food supply to begin with...

In Our Nation, the EPA was Ruled to be UN-Constitutional thus UNLAWFUL in the early 1970's

Okay, let put it in layman's terms for the lame! That's his dick & her mouth. Who do you think that you are to tell 2 consenting adults who's allowed to blow who?. I was under the impression she already had clearance given the fact she worked the white house

Where'd you get this list of liberal lackey-palabra points?
OIC, the NY Times. HA!
Let's just cut to the chase and address this point, the premise of your post:
"Let’s start by stating the obvious: Hillary Rodham Clinton would be a formidable presidential candidate in 2016 ...".
Hillary Rodham Clinton is no longer a formidable competitor for anything. Especially where a demanding, rigorous, strenuous political position requiring stability, stealth and physical fortitude are concerned and need to be SERIOUSLY considered.
Her failing health issues knock her out of the ring rapidità.
President of The United States ... Hee-Hee-HaaaaaHo!

She's blessed if she can be Chair Woman of some prestigious Women's Organization/Club. "Pant Suit Pussys For Dog Bites Unite".
Her mind is what made her formidable.
I said "made" past tense. After her stroke ( appears ) she lost her sharp edge in reasoning, thinking, l-o-g-i-c-a-l . discernment and deduction.
"What difference, at this point, does it make??!!!"
... is running on short-fuse, fast-track-by-pass ( il ) logical.
NOT very presidential or dignified in caliber, integrity, diplomacy or foreboding formidability.
Not to mention her dereliction of duty(ies).

Why go any further? BUT, I don't mind throwing in The Benghazi Debacle and her lack of leadership skills in a position that inherently holds obligation, and requires accountability and responsibility at a high level of snap-it-out-sharp acumen;
The Secretary Of State, Hillary Rotten Clinton. < GUFFAW >.

She's been willing to bite the bullet, fall on the sword, sit second fiddle, play second string and be disgraced by and at the behest of 2 Men Seated in the highest power, and STILL she wasn't savvy, self-respecting enough to realize that by giving up her Senate Seat she was giving up her INDIVIDUAL power to instead do the bidding of 2 Corrupt Presidents. Who both used and abused her.
BUT for the sake of career and political gain, she sat side kick and got kicked to the curb. Shall I go on?

It 'aint' so *obvious* to me. Not by a long shot.

I didn't read the rest of your post.
Your First Sentence - The Premise - Was Faulty.
No Arguemnt can Stand Upon a Faulty Foundational Premise.

... And only because you replied was I extended the invitation to Wax Philosophical! lol ... ;)

Well, your Lincoln Log said to "have fun", "keep it ridin' on the razzins' edge" < so to speak > ... So, I Did!! G'Day Mate!.. ;)

PS Might as well run Wendy's Clara Peller for POTUS in 2016!!!! HaHaaHaaaa!..:)

Consider me as confused as Terrence Jeffries. The voluble conservative gadfly let it slip on Sean Hannity's radio program today that he really doesn't know what possible motivation the Obama administration would have for altering talking points about the Benghazi terrorist attack, or in forcing Hillary Clinton to go along with a conspiracy to somehow cover up something having to do with the death of four American diplomats and intelligence officers.
A few seconds earlier, Jeffries had described a statement that went out from the U.S. embassy in Egypt attempting to calm passions amid the firefight.(He directly attributed the statement to Hillary Clinton, but hey, why let facts get in the way?) Said Jeffries: "They need to explain that Sean. They haven't done it yet. The root of it is Hillary Clinton."
Hannity isn't quite ready to move on. "I think Hillary was running interference for Obama but I'm convinced that the talking points had to go through the re-election campaign that was located in the White House."
But Jeffries must make sure that the blame lies with Hillary Clinton; the buck must stop with her, because she's going to run for president in 2016, and Jeffries needs to raise money off of her, and he needs to begin to draw a caricature of her as uncaring, unfeeling, and willing to let four Americans die rather than face up to the fact of an al Qaeda renaissance.
"I don't know the motive for why they covered up," he admitted, after Hannity tried to shift the focus back to Obama's National Security Council.
