President Bush and Vice President Cheney met with the entire 10-member bipartisan commission at a meeting in the Oval Office. They answered questions from the commissioners for more than three hours.
A statement from the 9/11 commission described the meeting as "extraordinary" and thanked the two men for their cooperation.
"The commission found the president and the vice president forthcoming and candid," the statement said. "The information they provided will be of great assistance to the commission as it completes its final report."
Now my question to you is why did Sandy Berger smuggle top secret documents out of the archives and destroy them before the 9-11 commission could see them?
Lerner should have been fired. She is a government employee paid by the people. She cannot refuse to answer questions on the part of the people who employ her.
Oh my Gawd the old Sandy Berger story again! Sandy Berger took copies not original documents which are still in the National Archives and still available to the 9/11 Commission.
As to the testimony before the 9/11 Commission Bush and Cheney insisted that they be interviewed together and that no recording be made. Clinton and Gore were also interviewed but separately and their testimony was recorded.
If there is an active criminal investigation going on then the best thing to say is nothing. Lerner was invoking her rights under the Constitution. Your beloved Rick Scott when deposed as to his role as CEO of Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corp as part of a Medicaid fraud investigation invoked his Fifth Amendment rights 75 times.

We're left wondering who exactly is in charge of this government?
The president's top officials knew what was going on with the IRS months ago.
Shulman, IRS Commissioner, met with Obama 118 times. Bush met with IRS officials two or three times in 8 years.
That either means Obama was left completely out of the loop and someone else was in charge or he is feigning innocence.
He can't win either way.
So what was going on with the IRS Carol? I'll tell you. The staff in the Cincinnati office were doing their jobs the best they could considering the flood of 401C applications and the limited resources they had. The IRS is required to determine whether organizations applying for special tax status are "social welfare" groups or are instead engaged in political activity. Political groups cannot get the special tax status these groups were applying for.
Only one-third of the groups that were passed to specialists for a closer look were "conservative." Lots of other organizations were also checked, including progressive organizations.
No conservative organizations were denied their tax exempt status.
Just another phony "scandal" cooked up by the right wing and swallowed whole by gullible fools like you.
I think the Obama administration was wrong to fire or suspend anybody in this case.

Issa is not the President of the United States.
If, however, Obama, who IS the President, knew the IRS was targeting his enemies months before it became news and did not take action to stop it, that is an impeachable offense.
We only have to wait until the people creating a stonewall around him begins to crack.
There are too many people too close to him who did know.
If they kept him out of the loop, they should all be fired. If he does not fire them, it's just a matter of time before Obama, himself, is implicated in this coverup. The other two coverups will then matter again at that point.
One more time stupid, there was no "targeting" . The only groups that were denied tax exempt status were progressive groups. Not one conservative group was denied. The IRS is required to check whether or not a group requesting tax exempt status fulfills the requirement.

If you don't think conservative groups and average citizens were "targeted" because of their political ideology by the climate set by this administration and the opposition being the "enemy", you are out of the loop and on your own. But good luck with that.

frontporch goes French.

The IG report states that conservative groups were targeted. The POTUS agrees with the report and states it is wrong.

So do we believe the moronic Progressives or reality?

The nation believes reality -the IRS targeted conservative groups.

Progressives are lemmings that are easily fooled by some shady website.

Yes I knew someone was going to bring these riots up but they had nothing to do with the austerity measures that Greece faces, they were a spontaneous response to a police killing.
While the youth unemployment rate is high in Sweden it's nothing compared to Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland all members of the Euro zone.

Not so fast moron. You are lying just like a typical

This test is right near the beginning of the article:

"Despite Sweden's reputation for equality, the rioting has exposed a faultline between a well-off majority and a minority, often young people with immigrant backgrounds, who cannot find work,"
