<quoted text>1. It's been widely reported by various news sources that of the 300 groups given extra scrutiny by the IRS, there was only about 70 groups that could be 'tea party' types. 2. What is in the IG report states emphatically that there was no evidence of any linkage between the Obama White House and the IRS 'Determininations Unit'--in fact when higher ups in theIRS did find out they ordered the lower-level IRS agents to knock it off--stop, but the agents did it again and was told by their immediate department supervisors to stop a second time. "The Internal Revenue Service: The IRS mess was, well, a mess. But it’s not a mess that implicates the White House, or even senior IRS leadership. If we believe the agency inspector general’s report, a group of employees in a division called the “Determinations Unit”— sounds sinister, doesn’t it?— started giving tea party groups extra scrutiny, were told by agency leadership to knock it off, started doing it again, and then were reined in a second time and told that any further changes to the screening criteria needed to be approved at the highest levels of the agency.
The White House fired the acting director of the agency on the theory that somebody had to be fired and he was about the only guy they had the power to fire. They’re also instructing the IRS to implement each and every one of the IG’s recommendations to make sure this never happens again." ...And here the final conclusion of the Inspector General:"But the IG report says that there’s no evidence of that"[Obama/IRS collusion].

A fool like you will never understand that it doesn't matter who the Obama Gestapo is targeting.

And are you claiming that POTUS lacks the power to fire a flunky like Lois Lerner?

Failing to approve in a timely manner is the same as a denial.

The Obama Gestapo thugs victimized not only Rosen, but his parents as well.
Holder has admitted his involvement and should be fired and horsewhipped.
The latest news is Holder fought to have open access to Rosen's emails and phone calls indefinitely. But he lost that one. He could only obstruct the First Amendment for one month.

Fox didn't invent the tea party. They just reported the dissent and the rallies against big government, lack of government accountability and higher taxes in every city all over the country.
Your Fox fixation amazes me sometimes.
Or is it simply racism, a Black president and the republicans entitled to power?

Grate job!!! You came up with 3 liberal groups. One lost their tax exempt status. How many conservative groups lost their tax exempt status? You lost 3 liberal groups, why did you not include a list of conservative groups that were targeted? How many of those groups were denied their tax exempt status?
