Barack Obama, our next President

He's shifted more and more to the right and each time he gives in, the rw crazies demand even more.
This might be one of the reasons why people like McCain are beginning to put their foot down.
Even he can recognize the danger that's brewing.
Senator McCain has a more realistic

Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who oversaw exempt organizations during the admitted targeting of conservative political groups, could be held in contempt and even go to jail after her appearance at a congressional hearing earlier in the day.
Lerner made a brief opening statement insisting she had "done nothing wrong" before invoking her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. Some legal scholars, including Dershowitz, have said that in giving the opening statement, Lerner may have waived her Fifth Amendment protections.
"She's in trouble. She can be held in contempt," Dershowitz told "the Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "Congress ... can actually hold you in contempt and put you in the Congressional jail."
Dershowitz, who helped advise O.J. Simpson's defense team, said Lerner "should never have been allowed" to make her opening statement.
"You can't simply make statements about a subject and then plead the Fifth in response to questions about the very same subject," Dershowitz said. "Once you open the door to an area of inquiry, you have waived your Fifth Amendment right... you've waived your self-incrimination right on that subject matter."

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.
How STUPID are you?

The IG did not state their applications were inappropriate but the IRS treatment of these apps was.

Get with the program!

Your hate of conservative groups was reflected in the IRS and is illegal.

According to a recent CNN poll, 59% approve of the GOP's handling of these scandals.
59% say that the U.S government could have prevented the attack in Benghazi. 59% also say the GOP reacted appropriately.
It's the same story on the IRS controversy. 54% say the GOP in Congress has not overplayed its hand.
The more Obama is implicated in the IRS coverup, the more his numbers will drop.
Only the clueless who voted for him both times and who have no idea what's going on will continue to think the emperor is still wearing clothes. And skip to the bank with their welfare checks.
How many said that there was a cover up because of what as said afterwards?

The same poll that approves of Republican's handling of the scandals.

Actually, other polls support the investigations into the scandals but NOT all are outliers for Obama.

Lerner will be called back again.
But please provide proof of your ridiculous claim she was "forced" to do anything.
Lerner became the star of her own production. Issa and Boehner just let her bomb on her own.
She makes herself look foolish by being called back again.
Is there no limit to the liberals' depths of denial?
Pay very close attention K Babe? She can plead the fifth over and over again until "someone" charges her with a federal crime and then she can continue to plead the fifth if she so chooses.

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.

Did you read my post? Bush43 never won either Iraq or Afghanistan wars. Obama ended the war in Iraq in 2009 and is completing the end of war in Afghanistan by the end of this year of 2013. Is that so hard to understand?

White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler was told on April 24 about an upcoming report by the Treasury's Inspector General for Tax Administration on the IRS practice for which an IRS official apologized on May 10 triggering the controversy.

Soon after she learned of the report, Ruemmler briefed White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and other senior staff, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters at a briefing.

Both are being called to testify next week.

Immigration.

The downfall of the Republican Party.

If they pass it, they will please Hispanics & Give Obama another major victory.

If they don't pass it, they will continue to lose the Hispanic Vote & lose all credibility on the immigration issue.

If it passes the Senate with good bipartisan support & not the House, Republicans could lose the House in 2014.

He made that statement to a talking head on Newsmax TV. What happened to the good law professor's punditry gig on FOX? Or will any conservative media company do?

These are documented events that should not have happened.
-we cannot have the IRS targeting certain political groups
-we cannot have the DOJ claiming reporters are criminals in order to get a hold of private emails
-we cannot have security of our diplomats be a bumbled mess were there was no leaders

Anyone who tries to dismiss this as "witch hunt" is a Progressive butt kisser who doesn't care about individual freedoms and rights and deserves any ridicule heaped on him.
