So it was just a few bad apples in the IRS?
That particular piece of spin may have held water if this wasn't a nationwide witch-hunt!
Too many people involved in too many states for this not to be a directive from high up the chain.
Benghazi should be enough but this IRS scandal, must surely lead to Obama's impeachment?
Party alliegiences aside, this can't be allowed to go unpunished.
Disgraceful.
The IRS scandal is clearly an abuse of power and has been going on for a very long time so for Obama to deny any knowledge is laughable.

The Benghazi scandal is clearly dereliction of duty. As the Commander & Chief, Obama should be relieved of duty however worse yet, Obama let people die to further his political aspirations, hence another abuse of power.

I've got a suggestion for you. How about you do something you, and Obama, have never done. Read the goddam Constitution. In it you'll see that Congress controls all spending. There are laws, and there is funding. If the government is broke, like it is today, then there isn't any money to spend on enforcing a law. You can't spend money you don't have. Let me acquaint you with a real-world fact you Democrats seem to be ignorant of. Money doesn't grow in trees.
When money starts growing on trees, then there will (maybe) be enough money for this hippy pipe dream of an Orwellian dictatorship the Democrats have in mind.
The Constitution is the authority. Now, read the 14th Amendment and you'll see the ONLY payment the Constitution commands the Congress to make.
What the 14th Amendment says is, you have to pay the public debt before you write a welfare check of give someone foodstamps or pay for some pipedream of a so-called "healthcare" plan.
You seem to have about as good of an understanding of the way our government works as Obama. It's no wonder the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School described Obama as "lazy and unqualified".
If as you say 'you can't spend money that you don't have' then how was it possible for Bush&Cheney to run two unpaid for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for eight years? They borrowed from the Chinese and nearly bankrupted all of us.

The Benghazi story gets better as Obama has demonstrated he cannot be trusted due to the cover-up. It's the cover-up that usually get people, including Nixon. Obama is Nixonian for sure.

Not all all but

Florida Planned Parenthood spokeswoman did not help

The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine, reports what happened:
“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd.“If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”

“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,”

said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.

Killing a baby born alive is called Murder in the State of Florida!

Unpaid wars. Cough, cough.

But, we need more tax revenue for the children.
So, why are the Republicans only calling for one head to roll--Steven Miller (acting head of the IRS after Bush appointee Shulmin left the position empty and adamantly denied there were any IRS scrutiny of anyone's tax records)? Because; Congress was too lazy and stupid to confirm a new IRS Commissioner appointed by Obama yet.

Two days after the IRS apologized for targeting conservative groups for reviews of their tax-exempt status, a top adviser to President Obama said “GOP groups flourished” in the last two elections cycles “and they will use this to raise more money.”

The tweet by David "Poof" Plouffe, who left the White House in January, could give GOP reason to accuse Obama's team of playing politics with the IRS controversy by defending or justifying the agency's actions.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin calls the IRS's activities "unacceptable and un-American."

"“The actions of the IRS are unacceptable and un-American. Government agencies using their bureaucratic muscle to target Americans for their political beliefs cannot be tolerated. The President must immediately condemn this attack on our values, find those individuals in his Administration who are responsible and fire them," says the West Virginia Democratic senator.

“While we await answers from the Inspector General, there must be a congressional investigation to determine how this happened and to prevent this from ever happening again.”

Yes it's The Blaze but still an interesting story to read and outrageous. If the below quote from said article is true, then it's even more unacceptable.

"It gets worse. It turns out the IRS was targeting Pro-Israel Jewish groups. It’s now gone from political targeting to racism and anti-semitism."

Why do you believe Joe Manchin and not the President who said the same thing? Because Joe is a white man? You thought that Joe Manchin was a liar and a bum only last week when he teamed up with Toomey on a good gun safety bill.

Nope. Since the invasion of Afghanistan was one of Bush's rich man's wars for oil , Obama raised the rich's man's taxes to pay for finishing it.
