Bridge, is that really you? If so, my apologies to Dumbo Jr on the prior response.
There is no comparison. There is a difference between a sporadic audit and a targeted attack to penalize a specific political philosophy.
Yes it was me, and that was my point. The best they could do was finding 5 groups yet ignored that there were conservative groups audited at the same time. The best part is how they ignore that those groups did break the rules and should have been audited.

Where is it flying? Are you talking test flight, or are you talking about Ethiopian Airlines that is so far the only airline to has resumed passenger service on the 787?

My apologies to you, my friend. And as always, you were right on point.

If Obama is willing to use the IRS for political purposes, what agency would(did) he not use?

he media has gone into high boil over the actions of a handful of IRS employees in Cincinnati. The IRS is deliberately targeting political groups! They even admit it! Can impeachment be far behind?
Next step, tie this to Benghazi and any other fact-free psuedo-scandal close at hand. Step two, moan about the general incompetence and corruption of government. Step three, demand scalps — but not before there's time to spin out a good half dozen Sunday talk show seasons on Taxgazi, or Tax and Furious, or whatever brand the pundits decide has the most snap.
You know this one must be the real deal, because every news channel, newspaper, local anchor, radio nutjob, and water cooler wag is singing the same tune. Hell, even Jon Stewart is on step two.
There's just one minor problem: the exact purpose of the IRS office in question IS to look at political groups. Specifically, to weed out purely political groups that promote or oppose candidates from obtaining a tax status that's supposed to go to nonprofit educational organizations. The crime of the IRS agents in Cincinnati? They were doing their job.
But what about the specific targeting of Tea Party groups? Doesn't that show that this was all just a witch hunt against groups with right wing ideologies? Uh, no. It came up at exactly the time the office was getting flooded with a bunch of hastily prepared applications spewing from the Tea Party's messy birth. The edict went out expressly because the office was being flooded with a bunch of hastily prepared, clearly political, applications all using very similar terms. In fact, the entire group of IRS employees in question was created to address the influx of possibly political applications. If the office had suddenly received a hundred applications for exempt status all claiming to be from the Sierra Club, wouldn't you want them to pay a bit more attention? I would. What if those applications had all been from groups using Muslim Brotherhood in their titles? Would the same pundits still be on the air screaming about the IRS getting all political?
Behind all this are the staggering numbers. Out of thousands of applications, only a handful were rejected. You know what happens while a nonprofit organization is waiting to get this approval? They get to operate as a nonprofit organization. The harm caused by this action is exactly zero, and exactly no groups have sued the IRS in response to their rejection. They simply amended the application and tried again.
These are agents doing their job. They responded to an unusual influx of groups with political language in their applications all going after a designation that excludes groups that carry out many political actions.
The only scandal here is that this is being reported as if the IRS did something wrong in injecting itself into politics. The law requires that the IRS inject itself into politics. Don't like it? Change the law. Don't attack the people trying to enforce it.
This is a Blessing in disquise man,this IRS scandal is the perfect storm for Tax Reform!

"Most Agree That Both IRS and Benghazi Deserve Further Investigation

Most Americans agree that both of these situations are serious enough to warrant continuing investigation, with little difference in views of the two -- 74% for the IRS matter and 69% for Benghazi."

So that they only targeted conservative groups (not just Tea Party groups), is a non-issue to you?
Of course Obama disagrees with you as he called their actions outrageous.
Obama disagrees in voice only. His outrage, is phony outrage.

In a speech to a gathering of friendly government contractor groups today, he suggested Washington has different priorities than theirs and some are "distracted with fleeting issues". From outrage and appalled to fleeting issues.

This guy is as insincere as they come.

The tax reform that should take place is a plan similar to the Fair Tax, or a Flat Tax.

However, both take the power away from the politicians and they will never allow that to happen.

Sad, but true.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO:
“There’s a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we don’t apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.”
“We should not only FIRE the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but we’ve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are REMOVED from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable,”
As the discovery process continues with the IRS scandal, it is becoming more apparent that this is not one or two rogue low level employees.

Heads should roll. Lots of them.

But with the corrupt Eric Holder at the head of the Justice Department, this will be another black mark the Administration will try to brush under the rug. Just like Fast & Furious and Benghazi.

Right, normal 20 century incidents, that happen...

Irish, that was childish, even for a complete loser, like you...

Weak deflection, too.

Sad way to behave, when an adult hands your monikers, their walking papers.

Now go wipe your beaten azz....
