Both sides are calling for the release of all emails.
I'm sure you are too so it will finally clear up the confusion this administration seems to relish.
Sure carol, let's all pretend that you have an open mind, and will accept the facts if they don't agree with your party.

You can expect Obama to be as forthcoming about the IRS scandal as he was with fast-and-furious an Beghazi. In fact he promised it.

I guess stonewalling and obstruction is his way of cooperating.

The law says "exclusive" purpose is social welfare. The IRS unilaterally changed the interpretation of the law to be "primary" purpose is social welfare. That in no way lets Rove off the hook, he's guilty of tax fraud and should go to jail.
I'm not sure what you mean__are you saying that American Crossroads, a pure lobbying enterprise, is a 501 (c)(4)?

The effects of the Citizens United ruling was far reaching.

Whatever__as time passes we'll learn that many of these local TeaParty and 9/12 groups are in default__just mutts looking to score donations from dummies.

<quoted text> No a flat tax will still require the IRS. The prebate goes to everyone for their family up to the poverty line. Every one gets it.
Still leaves half the population with no skin in the game and thus no incentive to control government spending.

Fair tax is OK without the pre-bate.

You WILL accept gays and lesbians marriage. And if your pastor refuses to marry Gay or Lesbian couple the pastor will be thrown into FEDERAL prison.
Soon, you will see priests and pastors in jail for refusing to marry gays and lesbians.
Liberals will enjoy and applaud the government that does that in a fair and just world!!!
Fanaticism and paranoia at its worst. It's your party that persists in putting religion into everything. All religions are the scourage of the earth...PERIOD. History shows that to be true.

Just another Obama attempt to hide the truth.

<quoted text>So the indisputable fact that Saddam not only had WMDs but used them on innocents and had the determination and capability to use them again when the world wasn't watching doesn't concern you?

How about the indisputable fact that he paid the families of suicide bombers to kill our soldiers?

Did you think Saddam was going to change just because the UN gave him a hard time?

If we had not taken down Saddam, whose problem would he be now?
Iraq would had fallen to Al Queda.

Al Queda would had secretly undermined and eventually eliminated Saddam, He was not radical enough, and Iran would had taken over Iraq.

Bush ONLY slowdown the take over because now Iran will STILL take over Iran, it is just a matter of time!!!

As soon as Iran really gets the nuke, it will behave erratic. I do NOT know if Israel will attack or not, but I do know that Iran will definitively take over Iraq.

One can see a real pattern here with any rightie bent twist and lie, tell us about all of the worker programs and bills to help women , the poor or anyone that the Republicans have ever initiated or approved?

The real pattern here is the left keeps throwing up Smoke Screens -let us overlook the false claim that emails were physically altered- trying lamely to defend actions that shouldn't be defended.

Real diss the working man
You posted a homophobic post directed to me

Who knows-including you, yourself-what you believe or stand for as you are chasing squirrels furiously trying to confuse reality -at least in your own minds.

Do you still say that the Boston bombing was a Tea Partier?

How does it feels to be wrong all the time?

It had already been founder that the depression was cause by you Liberals forcing banks to give our subprime mortgages to irresponsible Liberals like you that did not qualify.

You still believe Sarah Palin orders the shooting of Gifford, because you are Always wrong.

Where are the pics of Obama in the Situation Room, deeply concern over what was happening in Libya. Yes, that is right, there is none. Obama saw no political advantage in the situation so stayed away.
Don't think there was any WH or State Department "activity" that normally would have involved the Department of Defense and senior military commanders.

Valerie Jarrett called an urgent meeting to figure out the most plausible lie so the president could go about his routine of campaigning and fundraising.

She probably packed his little lunch the next day, gave him the speech she had stayed up late writing for him the night before, kissed him goodbye ever so sweetly on the cheek and waved lovingly on the tarmac as she watched him fly off toward the City of Lights.

If anyone doesn't believe Valerie Jarrett is the "anonymous architect" behind this entire coverup, they are truly the easily fooled.

Are you trying to claim that the Dems are not trying to back step Obamacare?
"Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) called on governors to expand their Medicaid programs Thursday, declaring that healthcare is a "right guaranteed to all, not a privilege for the few."..."The Affordable Care Act saw its obituary written several times over," she said. "We kept pushing forward. We knew this might be our generation's last chance to achieve what had eluded so many generations before."

I have never said or agreed with any of those things...So what does that make you? I agree that Palin was and is an idiot, and pretty much showed that you baggers will follow an orangutan as long as there is an "R" attached.
