Again with the looney Progressive propaganda?
Back to reality, the IG clearly stated conservative groups were being targeted.
No, you didn't pay attention to Steven Miller's testimony to Congress. The I R S clearly stated that overly-ambitious , efficiency-minded employees used a popular short-cut--keywords --such as 'patriot', dark money','taxes are unconstitutional ' to find groups asking for tax exempt status and lo and behold look what they found! LOL If you tattoo 'taxation without representation is unconstitutional (and that elected black man in the White House isn't my President) on your forehead then dontcha' think someone at the IRS is going to take you seriously? LOL

Do you find Obama's claim that he is told nothing and has to find out what is going on by reading the papers a little insane?
or two little peons, in a Cincinnati IRS office, in some remote area, where able to harass over 1000 groups and people in under 3 years. If they were hired, out of the pool of democrat community organizers, more than likely they couldn't even write their own names.

Imagine for just a tiny moment, in your pinhead brain; how meaningful and historical it was for the first black President of the United States to give the commencement speech at Morehouse? MLK's alma mater.
One day, you will choke on your snark. Your ignorance is appalling, you should truly be ashamed of yourself. You're old enough to know better so there's likely no hope of enlightening the likes of you. The only saving grace is that pretty soon, all you old hateful white supremacists will be dead, and your hatefulness will go in the hole with you.
Imagine for just a tiny moment that no one gives a flying fig.

MLK would more than likely be embarrassed by this president too since it was MLK who admonished us to judge a man by his character and not by the color of his skin.

Lying and deception to protect self-serving intentions is not an outstanding character trait.

But, yes, he DOES have dark skin. So you go ahead and go with that. MLK would not be proud, pretty sure.

He & his are "RUINING" American values and systems!
No unamerican white lady! Reagan did that back in the 80s, your lord & savior! Exactly what values & systems are you talking about? Sorry to ruin your utopia but, America has been changed. Barack Obama is no more than a symbol of that change! Where his father is from has nothing to do with him. He was born & raised in America. You people need to get over the fact that Obama is a Blackman & president of America. Your party screwed up allowing the minorities voices be heard for the 1st time. Now you will hear it loudly, all of the time, every election!

He has secured millions of dollars in Congressional earmarks for road work and public works projects that promise improved traffic and other benefits to the many commercial properties he owns here north of San Diego.

That alone is so implausible, it raises an even more serious question of who exactly IS in charge?
Biden probably gets more information from Obama's advisors.
VEEP Joe Biden has some pretty smart advisers of his own too like Ted Kaufman and Jared Bernstin. Biden is also one of President Obama's most well-informed , intelligent foreign policy advisers( VEEP Joe Biden's thirty years on the U S Senate's Foreign Affairs Committee earned him those bona fides credentials.

Stupid idiot.
the government should not be able to use the tax code to control behavior. The Fair Tax eliminates all that nonsense.

I like to toy with those who cherry pick which results they wish to believe.
I have noted that Progressives here wants to believe the outlier CNN poll which has Obama at 53% approval while wanting to deny 59% in the same poll thought the GOP was handling Benghazi correctly.
Sorry bra, but I don't pick cherries. I'm a realist. The truth of the matter is,nobody cares about any of those"scandals." George W Bush Fucked it up for any RepublIcan. Nobody trusts republicans after the 9/11 debacle. 9/11 marks the date the spirit of America changed for good. You don't need a poll to tell you that, you can feel it in the air!

You asked a question and I answered.

You were wondering how the IRS identified certain groups to target and I answered that it is known that big donors to Romney was targeted.

Sorry, your question had a simple answer and wasn't the stumpier you hoped it to be.

At least with Joe, we'd have some modicum of experience and leadership and be amused the next three years.

And if the Obama Administration had ignored Congressional pressure to plug leaks in the national security agencies then Darrell Issa would be holding hearings on that too. It is not what Obama does or doesn't do ,but what Obama looks like to republicans --a young black man , raised on the mean streets of Chicago who chose not to go into drugs or sports, but who had the gumption to grind out a quality college education, return home to volunteer work in his community improvement and empowerment then go into politics and succeed all the way to the White House. To republicans that rags-to-riches fable only happens to white, well-heeled , conservative white boys.
