Two wrongs don't make a right, ever.
If the current admin would actually use the brains in the head on their shoulders, they wouldn't waste time and dollars partaking in "bully practice government"
They would instead, spend time much more wisely, doing things like trying to REFORM some of the TAX codes, that would actually CURB abuses to the system.
But thus far, they would rather seem to play elementary sandbox games, like self elevated above the law type grand poopoobahs, playing cowboys and injuns.
The Obama Administration was ready and eager from day one of re-election to join the republicans on meaningful tax reform ,but it was republicans who backed off , claimed tax reform wasn't necessary because Obama already got his tax raise for the wealthy then rushed into making a embarrassing scene of fussing over phony "scandals" Yeah, there's a rotten example to show the rest of the world.

We've finally found a real scandal involving e-mails, but its on the republicans side. "PHOENIX -- Arizona's bitter debate over a signature part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul has sparked an investigation into lawmakers' safety after at least nine legislators received a threatening email over Gov. Jan Brewer's push to expand Medicaid access.

The message referred to Second Amendment rights and shooting someone, but did not include any direct threats. It was sent to House Speaker Andy Tobin, who opposes the Medicaid expansion, and eight other Republican House members.

"Please kill SB1492, the Medicaid Expansion Act," the email begins, before quoting the Second Amendment. It then reads, "If you are ever asked why you shot the person, the only answer from your lips should be, I felt my life, or/and my family's life was in immediate danger of death. So I did what I had to do in order to eliminate this threat. "

State police are also investigating a voicemail left for Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, a Phoenix Republican who supports the Medicaid expansion. " Check this out: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/25/thre...

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.
Sure Carol, that's why none of them were denied tax exempt status. In fact, the only known 501(c)(4) applicant to recently have its status denied happens to be a progressive group: the Maine chapter of Emerge America, which trains Democratic women to run for office. Although the group did no electoral work, and didn’t participate in independent expenditure campaign activity either, its partisan nature disqualified it from being categorized as working for the “common good.”
However the Louisville Tea Party was granted 501(c)(4) status in 2009. Nevertheless, it published a list of “officially tea party endorsed candidates for the 2011 Kentucky primary.” They also published an article “The Rationale for Romney-Ryan,” arguing for Tea Partiers to vote for the Republican candidate. That's a clear violation of their 501(c)(4) status.
What "average citizens" were targeted Carol?
You're the one out of the loop Carol.

I think that we ran all the Tea Party kooks off the page, including Carol, because they're afraid to face facts.

That's funny. Because every source about the Sandy Berger mysterious theft caper said certain documents were still missing in the 9/11 commissioner's report. Berger tried to justify stealing them by using that excuse.
But the question remains: If copies of those documents were readily available, why did Berger take such a risk stuffing them in his socks and pants from the National Archives?
Sure Carol, what sources? You don't seem to be able to name anybody.
Sandy Berger didn't stuff anything into his socks or pants, that's a right wing lie that only twits like you believe.
When anyone requests documents from the National Archives they get copies, no one gets the originals no matter who they are.

HEY STUPID! Greece's problems don't have anything to do with any kind of "socialist policies" but from the fact that they were suckered into joining the Euro zone and in the process lost control of their currency. Other countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark all of which nitwits like you would describe as "socialistic" didn't buy into that scam and are doing just fine.
By the way moron the Obama phones that right wingers love to trot out is actually a 28 year old program called Lifeline that was signed into law by Ronald Reagan and renewed by George HW Bush.

So don't complain. Non cons didn't want this... conservatives did!
Like THAT hasn't been going on for decades. Just that NOW the yewneeyun propoganda now has advesaries in the polTICal arenas-hail the SUPER PACS!

S'all "that's awright, it's all goodduh" though, because absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the playing fields needed some leveling out anywa, as the wafting STENCHes of rampant corruption have been getting pretty FOUL.

Yes, that is what the current administration would prefer, that we "ignore" black and red flags waving.

That means reform in other areas too. Like maybe in the EIC and tax return areas-as in any returns calculated to go to people already living OFF the system, would be prorated and adjusted to allow for some returns back INTO the system, rather than just more draining of it.
That, and of of course, tightening up some of the BS loopholes, so corporate entities might actually have to contribute honestly at reasonable and fair levels again.

Such a downhill slide in ethics over the past 35-40 years. Effort would be required from BOTH sides of those aisles however, for this nation to see better again though.

Somebody has to tell you this. It might as well be me. You are much too gullible for your own good.
If this was just a rightwing phony scandal, democrats wouldn't be condemning it as loudly and, in some cases, even more loudly than conservatives.
Neither would 60% of Americans say the GOP is handling the scandals appropriately.
More hearings are scheduled next week and the weeks following with bigger fish having to testify under oath. More whistleblowers are also expected to emerge in the ensuing weeks.
This is just the beginning.
Wrong Carol! I rely on actual facts like no conservative group was denied tax exempt status.
Facts like it's the job of that division is in fact to check out whether or not an organization seeking a 501(c)(4) status actually qualifies for it.
I'm not interested in the theatrics from either side.
