"A new Quinnpiac poll shows that the public is far from satisfied that the IRS matter is settled. A full 76% want a special prosecutor named; that includes 63% of Democrats.
Well, Obama did promise to bring us together. Let's just hope he was wrong about the oceans rising."

"Special IRS Prosecutor Favored as Obama Support Dips, Poll Finds"
"Three-quarters of U.S. voters want a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Serviceís targeting of Tea Party groups, according to a poll that showed a drop in President Barack Obamaís approval and trust ratings.
In the survey released today by Hamden, Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University, registered voters favored a special prosecutor by 76 percent to 17 percent. Those backing such a move included 63 percent of Democrats.
ďThere is overwhelming bipartisan support for an independent investigation into the IRS,Ē Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac polling institute, said in a news release.
The IRS earlier this month disclosed that it singled out groups with ďtea partyĒ or ďpatriotĒ in their names for extra scrutiny before deciding whether to grant tax-exempt status under the tax codeís Section 501(c)(4). That status would allow those organizations to hide their donors even when engaging in political activity."

Nice Cut/Paste.....Where did ya get it from? I know where it is from, why not post a Link, iddiiot?
As the Psychotic you are, I assume you have never asked yourself why you lack the Morals found in decent humans, "why are you not outraged at the High Crimes and Misdemeanors that define the Occupiers of the White House"?
Can it simply be your Mental Illness?
Or is it your Demokrat Racist Bigotry, combined with the Degenerate Gambler that never leaves your one room apartment?
Was it when Uncle Daddy "did you" that lead to the lack of decency you may have developed as a human being.....Or is Genetic because of your "conception" from an Un Holy Coupling of a Brother and Sister?
Inquiring minds want to know!

President Barack Obama's job approval rating has taken a huge hit in the wake of the scandals surrounding the White House, a new poll has found.
Fewer than half the registered voters surveyed now believe Obama is "honest and trustworthy," according to the poll conducted by Quinnipiac University. That figure had stood at 58 percent the last time the question was asked in September 2011. Now it is at 49 percent.
And it is the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service that is hitting Obama hardest, the survey found. The voters, who were surveyed between Wednesday last week and Tuesday of this week, believe that controversy is more worrying than those surrounding the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, or the seizure of phone records from journalists.
According to the Connecticut university's survey, more people now view the president negatively than positively. Slightly under half -- 49 percent -- say they have a negative view of Obama, while 45 percent have a positive view.
Just one month ago, before news of the IRS controversy broke, the president's job approval rating was more positive than negative, at 48 to 45 percent.
When it comes to the individual controversies swirling around the Obama administration, 44 percent of voters see the IRS prying into conservative groups as the most important, while 24 percent say they are most concerned about the administration's handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, and 15 percent say the records seizure at news organizations is most important.
Meanwhile, more than three out of four voters -- 76 percent -- believe a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate the IRS scandal. That figure includes 63 percent of Democrats, 88 percent of Republicans, and 78 percent of independent voters.
"There is overwhelming bipartisan support for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS," said Peter Brown, assistant director of Quinnipiac's Polling Institute.
"Voters apparently don't like the idea of Attorney General Eric Holder investigating the matter himself, perhaps because they don't exactly think highly of him," Brown said. Holder got a negative 39 percent job approval rating, compared to 23 percent who approved of the way he is doing his job.
But the poll also shows that almost three-quarters of voters, or 73 percent, believe that dealing with the economy and unemployment is a higher priority than investigating these three issues. Only 22 percent disagree.
But those who were surveyed are also optimistic that the economy is finally improving.
"The fact that voters say, 34Ė25 percent, that the economy is getting better also may be a reason the president's job approval numbers have not dropped further," said Brown.
Other points from the poll include:
ē Political parties and groups are generally held in disdain. Voters have an unfavorable view of both the main parties and the tea party. The Republican Party fares worse, with an unfavorable rating of 50 percent, compared to 35 percent who rate it favorably. The same is said of the Democrats by 47 percent who rate their party favorably, and 42 percent unfavorably; and the tea party by 38-28 percent.
ē A minuscule 3 percent of voters surveyed says they trust the federal government to do the right thing all the time. Twelve percent says they trust the feds most of the time, 47 percent say some of the time, and 36 percent say hardly ever.
ē A congressional election today would be evenly split, with 38 percent saying they would vote for a Republican to sit in the House of Representatives and the same number saying they would vote Democrat.
A total of 1,419 registered voters were polled for the survey, with a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points, Quinnipiac said.

The continuous references to Romney, Gingrich, and other "old news", irrelevant, republicans, as well as the boasting about mythical stocks, are all desperate attempts to either remain relevant, or attempts to "strike out" and "damage" intellectual superiors. Sort of like a wounded animal in a corner, but with no claws. Wonder how long before he/she/it starts bragging about he/she/its massive "dojo dick".
#14 May 30, 2013
Now that is Funny!
"bragging about he/she/its massive "dojo dick"
Man oh man! the awful images!
Does It uses the Dick on It self?
Does She use it as a "Conversation Piece", as it sits on a shelf in her one room Apartment?
Does He "Notch it" with the names of Little BOI's he has in his Gay Porn Collection?
Is the "massive dojo dick" attached right above It's Vaginal Opening?
(Which Slewblomkin organ do you suppose Uncle Daddy preferred?)
Man oh man! the awful images!

Honerable President Richard M. Nixon resigned after allegations of a breakin.
Honerable Barry H. Obama is involved in the murder of 4 Citizens/public servents simply says they were 4 bumps in the road.
Can't be made up!

A little comment here.
Anybody that thinks Eric Holder is leaving power is nuts. He may step down as Criminal in Chief at the Justice Department, but Eric Holder IS the President of the United States.
When the Mob let David Goebbels Axelrod go out to run the Demokrat Propaganda Arm , MSNBC, they made sure that at least one of King Barry's Handlers remained on the Basketball Court to control the Mob's Mannequin!
When Willy Cigar Clinton told Ms-Hillary-Rodam that she had to wait for her chance at Queen,, Willy assured her that Willy's Boy Eric Holder would look out for the Clinton's Interests and Cover-up for King Barry, as he did for Willy Cigar Clinton!

After a tough week dealing with the IRS and the Department of Justice, President Barack Obama's administration is facing what some are calling its worst week ever. However, it hasnít taken a toll on the presidentís approval rating, which stands at 53 percent.
This stable consistency comes with little surprise to those whose No. 1 mission isnít making sure Obama gets nothing accomplished during his tenure as president. After all, the Republican party has been quintessential the past four years in besmirching the president and trying by any means necessary to stymie him and his proposals, plans and party.
With the help of the wild right wing, media outlets have helped skew the publicís view of issues during the Obama administration. Pundits fervidly put all their energy into issues that donít directly affect the average blue collar guy ó like the IRS scandal ó while at the same time shrugging off important issues that impact us all, such as gun violence and climate change.
The recent IRS scandal is just another example of arbitrary news that seems to make the government and president enemy No. 1.
To break down the IRS scandal, not all of the information is available, so it is inappropriate to make any conclusions just yet. But even if Tea Party groups were targeted, Obama most likely had nothing to do with it and really has no say on what the IRS does or how it handles its business.
Despite current developments, Republicans havenít shied away from making their own conclusions on the issue. Michele Bachmann led the chorus stating,ďMost personal, sensitive, intimate, private healthcare information is in the hands of the IRS.Ē
Of course, like many things, Bachmann and others on the right have distorted, over the years, this false statement that will resonate deep with their endless followers confirming their unwavering bias against the president and his policies.
There are many reasons this is not affecting the presidentís approval ratings. People understand that most of what is thrown at the president is politics as usual. This paradoxically is healthy for our government; it is a way to check and balance each other.
They also understand that Republicans and right-wing conservative pundits, politicians and others reject everything the president has to offer. Despite desperate pleas from the West Wing for any compromise, conservatives stay the course. Thus, nothing is accomplished and the blame is put on the president for being incompetent.
Most of all, many understand that Obama is a great leader. He desperately wants to improve situations in this country from financially struggling families to those coping with violence.
It is a constitutional right for the media and others to speak what they feel. But when one hyperbolizes a situation to the point of it becoming the figment of oneís imagination, then that is the recipe for disaster when gaining support for your pitch. Even if it is the truth no one will believe it because of how fabricated it has become.
That is why it is always wise to wait and check all the facts that are coming in before making any assumptions or conclusions on a particular situation. Rushing to conclusions is not the way a civilized society like the United States should act and can irrefutably lead to unintended consequences.
That is not what we want if we want to keep moving forward.
