Democrats are trying to figure out how to put distance between Obamacare and the very unpopular IRS.

I cannot think of anyway they can move a tax to another department.

The scandal had no legs.
The dismissal of U.S. Attorneys controversy was initiated by the UNPRECEDENTED midterm dismissal of seven United States Attorneys on December 7, 2006, by the George W. Bush administration's Department of Justice. Congressional investigations focused on whether the Department of Justice and the White House were using the U.S. Attorney positions for political advantage. Allegations were that some of the attorneys were targeted for dismissal to impede investigations of Republican politicians or that some were targeted for their failure to initiate investigations that would damage Democratic politicians or hamper Democratic-leaning voters.

A subsequent report by the Justice Department Inspector General in October 2008 found that the process used to fire the first seven attorneys and two others dismissed around the same time was "arbitrary", "fundamentally flawed", and "raised doubts about the integrity of Department prosecution decisions".

Bush wasn't an ideological bigot you idiot and every ignorant Democrat thinks it's very important to point out that Bush appointed (D)Doug Shulman, but not to mention he's a Democrat and DNC donor..

It's the culture...

Rogue President Obama: Defending the Indefensible
Nothing suggests change. Business as usual continues. War on humanity is policy. Rogue leaders govern that way. Obama threatens everyone.
On May 23, he spoke at Washington’s National Defense University. He defended what he urged changing four years earlier.
On May 21, 2009, he spoke at the National Archives. He addressed national security. He said America can’t be safe “unless we enlist the power of our most fundamental values.”
“The documents that we hold in this very hall – the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights – these are not simply words written into aging parchment.”
“They are the foundation of liberty and justice in this country, and a light that shines for all who seek freedom, fairness, equality, and dignity around the world.”
“(O)ur government made a series of hasty decisions.”
“(O)ur government trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions.”
“(W)e set (aside fundamental) principles as luxuries that we could no longer afford.”
“(D)ecisions that were made over the last eight years established an ad hoc legal approach.”
He called doing so “neither effective nor sustainable.”
He pledged change. He said he took steps to prohibit torture. He ordered Guantanamo closed, he claimed.
He made other high-minded promises. He “swore an oath to uphold the Constitution,” he said. He systematically spurned it. He did so across the board. He represents the worst of rogue leadership.
His Thursday address reflected same old, same old. It was beginning-to-end demagogic boilerplate. We’ve heard it throughout his tenure. He repeats it ad nauseam.

“Can you tell the Muslims that their lives are as precious as our lives?”
“Can you take the drones out of the hands of the CIA?”
“Can you stop (drone) strikes that are killing people on the basis of suspicious activity?”
“You are commander in chief! You can close Guantanamo today! You can release” all cleared detainees.
“It’s been 11 years. Abide by the rule of law. You’re a constitutional lawyer.”
Speaking truth to power has a price. Benjamin was forcibly removed. She was detained. She was interrogated by Secret Service, military and FBI personnel. She was then released.
Why don't you take yo ass over there with them & their guerrilla warfare tactics. Obama didn't start this war. You talk about black people sold out our race by voting for Obama. Who would you have McCain out Romney? Yea they really have black folks best interest at heart. Shit they didn't even hide it, they didn't even have it in mind. Evidently what you don't realize is America ain't at war with a country, its at war with a worldwide religion, evidenced by the Boston bombing. I can't lie, I was against the start of the war but, it's on now, ain't no turning back. These people sending children strapped with bombs in doll babies. Bush turned what started as a difference in ideology into a holy war. I don't know if you've been in street wars or not but, you don't sit around & wait for them to attack, that's a losers strategy. Bush sacrificed more than 5000 USA troops & over 1000 NATO troops in committing to a full out invasion. Obama us trying to minimize the American casualties with the dronestrikes. It's as simple as this, if those countries don't want drone strikes in their soil, keep Al Qaeda out of their country! If civilians don't want to feel the wrath of the drones, stop harboring terrorist! What would you rather Obama do nothing & another 9/11 happen, another Boston bombing happen, & every other attempt to blow up American civilians? I'd love to know your ideology as how to stop this global jihad that Reagan & the 2 Bush's started. What would you prefer Obama do to resolve this?

And now it's cute little Smithfield Hams, in cute little Smithfield VA. LMAO, Smithfield has plants in Europe and "gasp" Mexico with worldwide sales of over $13 billion.
