The last thing the right wing wants to do is talk about themselves and what they are FOR. They're a collection of loony misfits that can't stand each other. The only thing that holds this circus together is their mutual hate of Obama.
The last thing Progressives wants to do is justify their bad behavior!

Do you find it believable that the no one tells the president anything and he only finds out what is going on by reading the papers?

You obviously have been in a coma the past week. Was it self-induced or trauma-related?

Thank you Supreme Court. None of those groups should have tax exempt status.
Dang, makes it tough for Progressives to punish their enemies when the Constitution keeps getting in the way.

Like how you ignore the Left groups, probably the same ones bitching about the other side, who falls under the same tax exemption.

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, 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... SAID "a" dumchit ...

If it had been Planned Parenthood, moveon.org or any other liberal groups targeted...my, my, my...the tides on here would turn as fast as an incoming tsunami.
Even the far left liberal commentators and Jon Stewart gets it.
Not the loons on here though. Goes right over their heads.
Out of 300 groups that the I.R.S.'targeted ' only 70 were right-wing , Tea Party groups, the rest were left-wing , liberal groups. You're right, Aunt Bettie Lou, www.moveon.org , ACORN, PlannedParenthood should protest loudly for the unequal treatment and conservative bias in the selective political profiling .

The targeting was also discovered in Washington D.C. and California.
Targeting?

How does that work when the IRS was simply taking applications as they were submitted by mostly political groups? Nationally over 70,000 since 2010, a fourfold increase.

Washington DC??

Don't you find that a bit odd Carol? Why on earth would the "residents" of Washington DC be applying for tax exempt status at a suddenly alarming rate?

I don't care if they're left or right, they're not entitled to tax exempt status, that was a mistake. Do you know how many such groups sprang up after the Citizens United case?
Stupid idiot.

I believe what I've heard from Republican politicians, there is no proof of a link between ANY of the "scandals" and Obama. They merely want to keep the PERCEPTION that Obama was involved alive. This gives erections to their loony constituents and gets them re-elected.

I did read to the end about the 'bad news'. Economists are forecasting a downturn/slowdown of the Democratically-inspired resurgent economy because of the damaging effects of republicans not doing anything to move past the sequestration that they approved of more than working with Obama on a balanced budget.

There were plenty of non political groups targeted because the owners were conservative.
Just keep defending these criminal actions, your party will be thrown in the trash that much quicker.
He got his lead from PROGRESSIVES such as Nancy Pelosi who tried to cloud the issue. Maybe, this will work for the rank Progressives here who apparently thinks that punishing your enemies is more important than the law.

The IRS is obliged to follow the LAW
