Please, please, please. I beg you.
Let me rephrase that.

I know you liberals are as stubborn as donkeys like your party's mascot, but please tell me at least some of you can see there's something very wrong with the same person in charge of the IRS targeting average citizens perceived as the "enemy" being appointed to oversee Obamacare.

A new Gallup poll finds that Americans are paying less attention to the Benghazi and IRS “scandals” than they typically do to major news stories.
Republicans are more likely than Independents or Democrats to be following both stories.
Here’s why that’s bad news for the GOP:
Not only is the deficit lower than it has been in five years, but so is the percentage of Americans who identify themselves as Republicans.
A man on the street interviewer asked New Yorkers what they thought of the present scandals.

Only one of the approximately 12 interviewed had heard of Benghazi.

Two students at one of the more prestigious colleges in New York knew nothing about the IRS or Benghazi scandals and one couldn't even name the vice-president or the Secretary of State at the time of the Benghazi attack.

These people are representatives of the New York Democrats who voted for Obama.

You should at least try and keep up.

Even the liberal media and liberal democrats are convinced funding had nothing to do with security or an attempt at rescue in Benghazi.

Obama should get on his knees and thank Bush Saddam isn't his problem now. He's got a plateful of problems he can't handle already.
You're too obtuse to see that Saddam was never ' problem' Bush made it up to look tough on 'terrorism' after al qaeda caught him with his pants down on 9/11. Bush lied;Americans died.

Well, like they say, something's gotta give.

We have a lying president who doesn't know what his Secretary of Treasury knew about the IRS months ago and the head of the Department of Justice who apparently knows nothing being assigned to get to the bottom of things while the person in charge of the IRS is being appointed to oversee Obamacare.

Do I have that right?

If so...Calgon, take me away!

You need to keep up. The 'liberal' media doesn't care about republican-contrived "scandals" --the overly-commercialized mass media is already moving on to new memes so their sponsors can keep making money.

YOU'RE obtuse.

The Democrats were the ones who lied to you about being lied to. They might have been just too stupid to know they were looking at the same Intel everyone else had before voting to give Bush permission to take down Saddam, all 111 of them, but it's more than likely they morphed into weasels when the political winds changed.

FOX should be able to relate to that.
Claiming ignorance and/or stupidity is the only Obama alternative to criminality.

Although Benghazi is much more serious, the IRS scandal is what will sink the Democrats in 2014.

Let me get this straight. The hope of the far left is that people remain stupid. As far as the media, they are covering the scandal. Even bed pals knows credibility sells commercials and they need to act like reporters on occasion. You really think Soros has everything locked down despite it all exploding out this week?

Everyone is convinced funding was not responsible for Benghazi.

A president lying about the deaths of four Americans on 9/11 isn't really a "republican-contrived scandal". It's a president lying and hiding the truth before an election about a terrorist attack on 9/11.

It's not a "republican-contrived scandal" that the IRS on someone's orders - likely higher up in the chain of command - targeted private citizens who were perceived as "enemies" of this administration.

Neither is it a "republican-contrived scandal" that Hillary claimed to know anything concerning the Benghazi attack when we now know she absolutely did which left four Americans in the crosshairs of a planned attack with no security and no escape route.

Explain to me again your reasoning why those who are really to blame are blameless.

"I start with a presumption that the president should be able to appoint his own people to his Cabinet. So unless there's some strong disqualifying element or quality to the nominee, I start with that positive presumption," King said.
Asked whether he saw a strong disqualifying element or quality with Hagel, King said, "No." Check this out: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/17/angu...
Obviously stale news.

However, when Obama nominates a new IRS Commissioner, a thorough colonoscopy should be required.

I was amazed to see Charlie Rangler go after Miller, IRS director, today. Despite Sonic's wistful hopes even the Dems smell blood in the water. Sonic, it is all about credibility and the Obama admin has squander their's. The Dems knows mid-terms is already plagued with Obamacare concerns and don't won't anything else clouding things.

Sonic, you also have forgotten that no matter which party they may belong to Congress is jealous of their power and are more than willing to throw an admin of their own party under the bus if they feel their laws and powers are being ignored.

So, we should just allow Obama to trash the Constitution and violate individual rights because a bunch of imbeciles are more interested in American Idol?

Yes, I do believe that's their hope. They do such a good job pretending to be dumb, why wouldn't their followers?
