How MANY TIMES are we going to have to go over Clinton? While Clinton was in the Oval office having fun with Monica, his REPUBLCIAN congress was busy at work making him look good. Good grief! PAY ATTENTION.
Go back 100 pages and see the link that explains the so called surplus.
You've never addressed the question about soldiers STILL DYING in the middle east. You have been asked NUMEROUS times.
If you care so much, why aren't you outraged about soldiers STILL dying over there, trillions added to the debt and the middle class STILL carrying the burden? Where are the JOBS?????
Instead of posting the same ZERO response, how about answering those questions???????? BTW, I don't believe I would even MENTION IQ if I were you.
You are a nut, that's all that makes any sense. Even Newt said in his ill fated quest for President that he could work with Congress to compromise. Just like he and Clinton worked together when he was speaker of the house and this country was growing and we had a budget surplus. Who cares what he did in his private life, its what affect his Presidency had on the country that matters.

SO now a surplus is "so called" when it doesn't fit your silly agenda!! A surplus is a surplus and a deficit is a deficit, its about the numbers not your opinion of the numbers.

As for being outraged for soldiers still dying in the sand in one of Bush's wars, lots of folks are outraged. Trillions added to the debt as this country tries to emerge from years of Bush wars and unfunded military spending is in and outrage. The memory of Bush's VP saying deficits don't matter, Reagan proved that is outrageous.

As for IQ, it takes zero IQ to believe that one man could have fixed the worlds problems left by your man Bush in 4 or 8 years, its going to take a really long time, if we ever recover from your man Bush and a Republican controlled Senate with NO agenda other than getting back to the White House, its so damn sad. This silly thread needs to die, as do you and all your friends BEFORE this country gets back to real business and it eventually will.

The most hotly anticipated IRS probe since Watergate didn’t exactly live up to the hype.

...Republicans looking for a smoking gun on partisan motive will have to keep looking — the report stops short of calling the IRS intentionally partisan, even if the questions might have been inappropriate.

Most of the report focuses on reprimanding the IRS for choosing ineffective criteria that could be construed as partisan rather than focusing on a partisan motive. Only about 15 percent of the potential cases had the terms “Tea Party,”“patriots” and “9/12” in their organization name. The remaining cases were flagged for other reasons.

The report found that the narrow focus of the criteria “gives the appearance that the IRS is not impartial in conducting its mission.”

“Using the names or policy positions of organizations is not an appropriate basis for identifying applications for review by the team of specialists,” the inspector general said.
(Also on POLITICO: Watchdog: IRS used 'inappropriate criteria')

The report never directly accuses the IRS of bias, just the appearance of impropriety.
Despite the inappropriate search criteria, the majority of applications flagged by the Cincinnati office had indications of significant violations of tax policy. The report found that about 69 percent of the fully documented cases on the list were properly identified.

...If tea party groups thought the questions were intrusive, even the Inspector General agrees that asking about donors and books read was a bridge too far.

The Inspector General said donor lists and details were an unnecessary, burdensome request in the vetting process. That may be the biggest victory for frustrated conservatives.
The report also makes clear that the IRS knew that it overstepped its bounds when it asked for donor records.

“Officials informed us that they decided to destroy all donor lists that were sent in for potential political cases that the IRS determined it should not have requested,” the report said.

If it is and from what I see on FNC, its ALL YOU GOT grow the F up! Who the hell cares if the IRS was taking a close look at groups that OPENLY are against taxes looking for tax exempt status, seems like the thing to do to me.

Well that's fully understandable. It's a difficult quandary to be in when somewhere in the dark reaches of your memory there is just the slightest inkling of a time when you can recall that you were in the right place. Just a fleeting view of a place that seemed more like reality. You have what's akin to Stockholm Syndrome. You have come to fully embrace the twisted philosophies of your captors. In this case it's groups like the Tea Party which is at best a subversive group and possibly borderline treasonous. They really don't like America. Oh they claim to, but they consistently display behavior that exposes their real distaste for Americans. And what is America but Americans. So your desire for me to "crawl back under [my] rock" is a positive sign really. It means that your memory of reality has been awakened just the slightest bit. Keep up the good work and you just might escape your captors.

Let's just note a few things about this IRS "scandal".

In order to qualify for a 501(c) status politics must not be the primary goal of the group. Otherwise the IRS SHOULD reject the application.

Here's the story of one of those investigated groups.

Her group is self-described as a "Tea Party Group", and is named "American Patriots against Government Excess"

She claims they are not political, but instead provides a community service. Said community service is "passing out copies of the constitution at parades" , "Providing "information" about ObamaCare" and "giving tips on disaster preparedness".

When asked about reading materials they gave Glen Becks favorite book.

Again - the primary objectives of the group must not be politically related.

The IRS ultimately approved the application.

That is what needs to be investigated.

Actually, I think it would be interesting especially since Reid wouldn't divulge his source. I bet Reid wasn't bluffing as Chicken seems to THINK. That seed was planted by someone. Oh, well. There is enough scandel without adding that.
How does that make them look weak? Are you serious? The first thought that crossed my mind when I heard this BS about the IRS was man they're a bunch of sore losers. They will do anything to make up an excuse why they lost. Well maybe not weak, just lame as hell.

I agree with you on most of your statement, but compared to other threads on Topix this thread is a shining star. Most people just get on Topix to start rumors about people in their hometown.

The other IRS scandal
Required context for a controversy
By David Cay Johnston
http://www.cjr.org/united_states_project/the_...

The burgeoning “scandal” over how the IRS chose for review 75 applicants for tax-exempt status puts on full display an unfortunate tendency in journalism—to quote people accurately without explaining the underlying context. Yes, it is as wrong for IRS employees to select groups to scrutinize based on their names as it is for police to stop and frisk young people based on the color of their skin. Still, the facts here are not so black-and-white as with racial profiling.

There is a scandal in all of this—several, actually, and some are more significant than the one that is getting all the attention. As the story unfolds, here are some important points to keep in mind...

So! You've concurred with Julian Bond on the name he has given the Tea Party members? Funny how Julian Bond was up in arms about the IRS investigating the NAACP back in the day, but supports the IRS in regard to the conservatives. You and Julian Bond make an EXCELLENT team. You are both about as relevant as a square tire.
(BTW, even liberals are criticizing JB for such an pathetic statement, but we all know how you LLSCL's LOVE hyperbole.)

Poor old Obama,
"Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us:“It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick:“He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”
Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.
This White House’s instinctive petulance, arrogance and defensiveness have all worked to isolate Obama at a time when he most needs a support system.“It feel like they don’t know what they’re here to do,” a former senior Obama administration official said.“When there’s no narrative, stuff like this consumes you.”
Comeuppance is sweet to the palate.
Love to see these Loonie Liberal Socialist Commie Lunatics on this forum paddling as fast as they can. IO, in particular, just keeps repeating the same old responses. It looks as if he has run slap out of extreme left wing defense. Someone posted, I think CB, a few days ago that the present scandels were already starting to fade away. Yeah! They're fading away alright. Everyday, some new revelation hits the news.
