<quoted text>That's only among republicans. But, if you include everyone, democrats, independents, and establishment conservatives in your polling then only 8% approve of republicans' handling of the "scandals" and even less approve of their stonewalling on getting anything done to move past sequestration to passing a budget and raising the U S debt limit(our time-honored tradition of paying our bills).
Another bold face lie, lily. You know people can do math-unlike you- and see what 59% minus 8% is. You idiotically think 51% of Americans are Republicans and 100% agree.

<quoted text>1 trillion dollar stimulus was passed in 2009--and yet a bridge collapses in Washington. Shovel shit ready jobs...remember...
The report also suggested that nearly 400,000 jobs could be created by building and repairing roads, schools and bridges. More than 200,000 jobs could be created in health care, particularly by creating a nationwide system of computerized medical records.

Maybe , that's what you get when you take republicans' advice to let the states distribute the federal stimulus money as they see fit or letting the unregulated 'free market' determine what gets funded and what is left to rot and fall down.

The implication was that WH Counsel, Ruemmler, was told in general terms about the report and that the information was kept within her office. But over the past few days, officials have offered a more detailed description of what really happened. Ruemmler was informed that political targeting had taken place and shared that information with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and some others on the senior staff. And there were subsequent discussions between White House and Treasury officials about the report.

But no one shared any of this information with the president. Why?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/with-m...

Why, indeed.

Why would no one give the president a heads-up about something as charged as political malfeasance at the IRS?

Too many whys. No one with any answers.

How stupid is the Tea Party?
Thev file for a tax exempt status reserved for non profit organization that advocate for social issues. Their main concern cannot be politics.
So these dumbasses in the Tea Party apply for this status using the name "Tea Party ThIs" or Tea Party that"
They announce their political agenda & then cry about it when the IRS sees this & knows they may not qualify.
Then the dumbasses whine to Congress & the Whiner-in -chief Issa jumps in to start yet another investigation.
This is just how stupid the Tea Party is.
And this is how fckn stupid you are

Galt is patient.
No, they knew that there was a crime from the first moment that the Watergate burglars were caught and arraigned in court. All that the lower-level IRS employees were caught doing was never having got in touch with the upper echelon of government officials .

<quoted text>So can we take it you now believe OJ is innocent of murder?
We will never know because the prosecution blew the case when they moved the trial from Santa Monica (where it should have been) to downtown Los Angeles in order to get a majority black jury.

Then the prosecution further botched the case by sending in the third string lawyers for political correctness.

Then the prosecution further messed up the case by arguing spousal abuse as the motive and Goldman as an innocent bystander instead of the obvious motive.

Biased jury + crappy prosecution = innocent verdict

She doesn't have to participate in witch hunts__she's got thirty four years service under her belt and is probably itching to get far away from government.
I just wish she'd have told the mutt from South Carolina to GFY.
