Keep throwing up any random cut-n-paste thievery your fevered mind stumbles across and thinks will stick and deflect, however foolish and irrelevant, eh, joe?
How pathetic.
We'll just take that as an internal surrender and acknowledgement on your part that the Obama Admin doesn't have a moral or ethical leg to stand on.
Uh oh, little teddy boy is dissembling like Hermann Göring at the Nuremberg Trials. And please, teddy dear, wipe up the spittle. It's uncomely.

Patience, my little partisan toolbox ... this perfect storm of lying, incompetence, corruption, illegality, and embarrassingly lame cover-up/stonewalling by the "we're right/they're wrong/we're holy/they're eeevul Righties/and besides we're smarter than everybody else" Obamatrons has a long, long way to run - and with the press now shamed into actually having to do their job (as well as having their own 1A rights and AP ox gored by these corrupt Chicago mobsters), this has a long, long, way to run.
They will be played long and artistically, like a 10-lb trout on a treble-hook, and they will hang themselves with their own narcissism and hubris.
All the Republicans have to do now is just sit back, dial back the drag, and crack a fresh beer out of the ice locker from time to time.
Tut, tut, tut teddy my wee lad, you appear to be hanging yourself with narcissism and hubris.

Revealed: Republicans knew about IRS investigations of tea party groups last July

Republicans in Congress have known that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) asked additional questions of some tea party groups seeking tax exempt status since last July, only recently raising the issue as a matter of controversy according to documents released by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

While President Obama has accepted the resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, the enhanced scrutiny of tea party groups occurred under the tenure of Bush-appointee Doug Shulman, who resigned in November.

Oooops!

House GOP: No Free Lunch for 200,000 Poor Kids
56
By Matthew Rothschild, May 17, 2013

It was bad enough that Republicans from Newt Gingrich on down derided Barack Obama as the “food stamp President” during the last campaign.

Now they’re trying to take food stamps out of the hands of the hungry.

On Wednesday, the House Ag Committee voted to cut $21 billion out of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

I wasn't whining, I was congratulating you on another brilliant cut & paste.

Conversation? That's funny. You haven't had an independent thought in your life. You're a cut & paster. You parrot the talking points and ideas of others. You sit around waiting for HuffPo to tell you what to think. You have nothing to contribute intellectually to a conversation.

I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just being honest. But keep on cuttin' & pastin' joe, righty's on the run!

Nah, I'm still going to make fun of your cut & pastes, I mean... "postings."

Keep 'em coming! You're the last line of defense before righty takes over America! With great cut & paste comes great responsibility.

More of that good 'ole republican hypocrisy:

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN) agitated against food aid for poor Americans included in the Farm Bill during last week’s House Agricultural Committee debate, accusing the government of stealing “other people’s money.”

Funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has already been decimated in both the House and Senate versions of the Farm Bill, cutting off nearly 2 million working families, children, and seniors from food assistance.

“The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.”

While Fincher interprets food assistance for the needy as “stealing,” he has not similarly condemned the Farm Bill’s massive agricultural subsidies.

Fincher has a great personal stake in maintaining these particular government handouts, as the second most heavily subsidized farmer in Congress and one of the largest subsidy recipients in Tennessee history.

Conservative 501(c)(4) weren't singled out.

Actually progressive groups were also looked at. Also groups that weren't conservative or progressive.

Groups applying to the IRS for special tax status were checked to see if they were engaged in political activity. They were checked, not targeted. Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.

Once again: Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.

Conservative groups were not "singled out," were not "targeted" and in the end none were denied special tax status – even though many obviously should have been.

From last week's House hearings on this:

Rep. Peter Roskam, R-IL: "How come only conservative groups got snagged?"

Outgoing acting IRS commissioner Steve Miller: "They didn't sir. Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That’s shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration]."

Says liberal BLOG (that you cut & pasted from) "Campaign For America's Future."

I wonder why, then... why Lois Lerner, head of the Internal Revenue Service's tax-exempt division... is going to plead the Fifth on every question in tomorrow's Congressional hearing.

It's probably because she doesn't want us to know that the IRS is "right-wing," right joey? That HAS to be it!

The economy has added more jobs since Obama took office than it did in his predecessor’s entire eight years in office.

Federal spending under Obama has grown faster than inflation, but far more slowly than it did under President Bush.

Domestic oil production has soared; oil imports have dropped by one-third; new cars are getting 17 percent better mileage; and wind and solar power have increased 157 percent.
