It's hard to tell who's MORE appalled - Democrats or Republicans.
Are you paying attention to what Democrats are saying? Even die hard Democrats? Their outrage is quite astonishing.
Actually, the only other time this has been done before - deliberately targeting the opposition using the IRS - was under the Nixon administration.
You know how that story ended.
What is more important is the appalling disgrace on Republicans for blocking Obama's appointments to these government agencies that have left them leaderless and demoralized . "Finally, Democrats are taking action to resolve the problem.Senate Democrats frustrated with the GOP’s blocking of a string of President Obama’s nominees are seriously weighing a controversial tactic known as the “nuclear option.”
The option — which would involve Democrats changing Senate rules through a majority vote to prevent the GOP from using the 60-vote filibuster to block nominations — was raised during a private meeting Wednesday involving about 25 Democratic senators and a group of labor leaders.
........Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) should demand a majority-only vote.“If we bring this nomination [Obama nominee for the EPA, Gina McCarthy] to the floor and there is a request for sixty votes, which we’re not going to get, I think it is time for the Democratic leadership to do what the American people want and that is to have a majority rule in the United States Senate,” Sanders told Democratic members of the panel last week."

<quoted text> God your a moran! The invasion was prior. We were bombing Torra Borra remember. It's just my opinion but I believe he crossed into Pakistan and was captured leaving Bush to deal with the Taliban and other people supporting terrorist. Like the IRA and Saddam. Remember the bombs going off all the time in Great Britain? Well that stopped. Right then. Right there. Saddam was paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers $25,000 For blowing themselves up in Israel. Those come to a complete stop and they turned to rockets. You libtard morans cherry your history.
Bush said "Our enemy is a radical network of terrorist, and every government who supports them. Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated."
Taken from the Address of the Joint Session of Congress following the 9/11 Attacks.
You libards are a bunch of traitors!!!
Look. You said maybe Bush knew where he was & didn't take him out because that would make him a martyr.

You said that.

WTF changed prior to the invasion of Afghanistan & two years later?

So now your claim is Bush invaded Afghanistan as a punishment for harboring Bin Laden?

He had no intent of getting Bin Laden?

Wow!

Maybe you can refresh my memory. Even though I'm not holding my breath.
If the IRS had been targeting liberals, the Bush administration would have been blamed to kingdom come.
But please prove me wrong. You must include your source, however. Which is why I'm not holding my breath.
I'll refresh your memory of this IRS scandal. It is about a conservative appointee IRS Commissioner Shulmin attempting to cover-up the IRS targeting teabagger tax payer groups and individuals . Why would he do it? We all know about the deep antagonism between the old guard Establishment Republicans( teabaggers call them 'RINOs') and the upstart young Turks Tea Party republicans. Think, woman, think!

How is it after all I said, this is the question you ask? You didn't even try to deny all the backdoor deals initiated by republicans gone wrong. You jump straight on Obama's mistake to help Libya! You slipped over the part where this is a reoccurring theme started by Reagan.

They're so appalled about the IRS story!! As if this has never been done before! Wiretaps? They never heard of such a thing? Was this a national wake up to these neanderthals the moment a black man got into the White House?
They're all excited, planning a double lynching of President Obama and Eric Holder.
Sickening beyond words.
Even MSNBC is jumping ship on the AP and IRS scandals, desperately trying to maintain a firewall around Benghazi.

Holder is toast.

Oh brother, and the dish ran away with the spoon.
Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd, Chief White House Correspondent for NBC News, are pretty upset.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/13/tom-...

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri:

“Anyone who was in a position of responsibility that knew this very un-American activity was going on should be fired.” She called it “an offense to what we are as a country.”

Dick Durbin, Illinois liberal, went even farther:

Durbin called the revelations “unthinkable,” and invoked Nixon, whose administration was known for specifically targeting political enemies for tax audits.

Says Durbin,“It is absolutely unacceptable to single out any political group, right, left or center” for tax purposes based on politics.“It goes back to some of the worst days of the Richard Nixon administration.”

Sen. Max Baucus, Democrat, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee:

“These actions by the IRS are an outrageous abuse of power and a breach of the public’s trust. Targeting groups based on their political views is not only inappropriate but it is intolerable," adding the agency "should be prepared for a full investigation into this matter" by his Senate panel.

Sen. Carl Levin, the Democratic chairman of the Senate committee responsible for investigations, said on Friday the IRS actions require a government probe.

I can't believe Boehner didn't invite President Obama to his daughters wedding. How rude.
Some people prefer privacy and generally invite only friends and relatives to family weddings.

Why spoil your daughter's wedding with an attention-seeking enemy?
