One might expect that the extra scrutiny applied to conservative political groups by the IRS would have ended after the practice got exposed three months ago. At least according to a recent deposition from the House Ways and Means Committee investigation into the scandal, IRS agents still are being directed to automatically apply extra scrutiny to applications mentioning the Tea Party, even if no other political activity is indicated in the application:

Q:“If you saw – I am asking this currently, if today a Tea Party case, a group – a case from a Tea Party group came in to your desk, you received the file and there was no evidence of political activity, would you potentially approve that case? Is that something you would do?”

A:” At this point I would sent it to secondary screening, political advocacy.”

Q:“So, you would treat a Tea Party group as a political advocacy case even if there was no evidence of political activity on the application. Is that right?”

A:“Based on my current manager’s direction, uh-huh.”

And I'm sure the anti-Tea Party left has no problem with profiling and bias in this case. Prejudice is fine and dandy as long as it's against "the right people".

Exactly what do you expect the GOP to do, ad hominem boy? Defund the IRS? Beat Obama with canes in the senate chambers?

I don't recall the democrats impeaching Bush for all the hand-wringing and clothing-rending tantrums you bedwetters threw 8 years of tantrums over - and still break down in sobbing fit over to this day.

So, did they just ignore you anti-Bushers' "cause"?? Why didn't they do something about it, Bob? All they did was promote a cooler, blacker version of Bush for president, who ultimately enacted the same costly, war-mongering policies as the guy you couldn't stand.

Come on, Bob ... why didn't you get Bush impeached or imprisoned for war crimes??? HMMMMMM???

Grow the f up, troll.

In fact, not only did you fail to impeach or imprison Bush/Cheney, Obama actually chose to continue the Patriot Act, despite all the spit-flying tantrums you hypocrites threw.

And where are you now, Bob? Why aren't you our there ringing the phones off every one of your representatives' offices demanding something be done???

Come on, Bob ... stop toe-tapping and get the democrats to end the Patriot Act, close GITMO, end the wars, imprison Bush, hang Cheney, end poverty, stop racism ....

Until you do that shut the hell up about what the GOP does or does not do, troll.

The question isn't what I expect them to do, but what you bellowing baggers should expect them to do........

Either that, or you just like to whine. You're proving to be very good at it, by the endless drivel you spew out daily. I guess that's easier than posting any hint of an idea that might change what you view as wrong.

No, Bob, the question is exactly what do YOU expect them to do. It's not whining, it's a common sense question.

In a world when Fast & Furious, Benghazi, New Black Panther voter intimidation and calls for bounties on American citizens, and IRS targeting of Tea Party groups that despite being uncovered still continue, can just be deemed "phony" by those responsible, with virtually no repercussions whatsoever from the media or bi-partisan investigations, what exactly do expect the minority political party to do beyond that which they are currently?

Remember, the question is still out there to you, how come your liberal party didn't impeach Bush? How come they still haven't closed GITMO? How come the Patriot Act was extended by your beloved party's leader?

How come you guys didn't do something about that besides whine loudly for over a decade??

I don't expect the Republican leadership in the House to do one damn thing to protect your kind, nor do I care. Why should I? You're the clueless idiots who voted for them, and the only people they are ignoring are the ones they lied to.

As far as changing the subject of this latest whiny rant of yours, we've done more than enough to the party that Herr Bush belongs to.......

Maybe after another 11 years of democratic leadership in the White House, you'll figure it out!
