A counselor to Bill Clinton comments on Lois Lerner targeting Grassley

"Davis referenced the disclosure that IRS official Lois Lerner proposed investigating Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) after she received an invitation intended for him. The invite mentioned providing accommodations for Grassley’s wife.

“Looked like they were inappropriately offering to pay for his wife. Perhaps we should refer to Exam?” Lerner wrote to a colleague in 2012.

“It was completely almost yucky to read what she wrote,” Davis said.“If that were known by her superiors, she should have been fired.”

Sorry, Bald Eagles: Wind Farms Are Allowed to Kill You Now
If you and I kill a bald eagle or disturb its nest, the consequences can be severe. Under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the felony killing of a bald eagle is punished by a fine of $250,000 and prison time. The authorities are taking the killing seriously. Well, sort of. As it turns out, not everyone is equal under the do-not-kill-bald-eagles law. If you happen to be a favored industry like say, a wind farm, you could get a get-out-of-jail-free card after killing up to five bald eagles if you request a permit and the feds grants it. The Associated Press reports:
A California wind farm will become the first in the U.S. to avoid prosecution if eagles are injured or die when they run into the giant turning blades, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday.

So in that strange bagger world you reside in a windmill farm is the same as one of you idiot NRA flunkies. If an Eagle flies into your car are you guilty, if it flies into your house are you guilty? I pity this nation if you morons ever gain full control again. Talk about warped. If your party would spend as much time working to fix all of the messes you left behind we would be far better off by now.

Hey dumbazz, when they stop attaching repeal Obama care with their phony bills maybe something will happen...Those idiots know exactly what they are doing. Your tiny brain is made to order.
Quite a few of those bills had bipartisan support both in Congress and in the polls.

Harry Reid and Barack Obama are the dynamic duo now though. Reid is just the sidekick.

And Holder is the fox guarding OUR hen house and the dynamic duo.

A Republic doesn't work that way. A totalitarian government does. Sorry to have to tell you what you should've already known.

Why do you insist on backing me up and reminding us what kind of president we have?

But Obama is always the last to know everything too, isn't he?

While Hilary and several Democrats are admitting there's much more than a smidgeon of corruption going on in the IRS, Obama told a group of supporters yesterday it's still a phony scandal.

Maybe he'll get a newspaper after he lets loose and lets the bear out of his cage...

Clinton adviser: Time for IRS investigation over targeting allegations
"A close adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees with Republicans that it’s time for an independent prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups and missing e-mails.
Lanny Davis — who was a counselor to President Bill Clinton — said the IRS needs intense scrutiny from an outside investigator.
“There’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation” if Republicans were in charge, Davis said Friday.

Lanny Davis is a liberal but at least he has ethics and integrity like Professor Jonathan Turley!

Here are just a few since 2011:

H.R. 2018, the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act

The bill would amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to preserve the authority of each State to make determinations relating to the State's water quality standards. This would reduce the federal government’s power over individual state’s water quality standards to help increase job growth.

H.R. 2587, Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act

The bill would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from ordering any employer to close, relocate or transfer employment under any circumstance. Washington already has too many harmful regulations that hurt job growth. The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act would help ensure that the government agency does not over step their bounds by dictating decisions made by private sector companies.

H.R. 1230, Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act

The Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act (H.R. 1230) would establish statutory deadlines for sales of certain oil and gas leases in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). CBO estimates that enacting this legislation would reduce net direct spending by $25 million over the 2011-2016 period and about $40 million over the 2011-2021 period. Restarting offshore leasing will help restore thousands of jobs.

Harry Reid blocked each and every bill passed by the House instead of sending them to committee and taking an up or down vote.

That's how our system works no matter who's sitting in the White House. Or used to.

You shouldn't be surprised there's gridlock. Obama and Reid created it intentionally.
