It is a shame most of you on the Left can't see past your nose and recognize what most of us consider the more troubling aspects of both Benghazi and the IRS scandal.<quoted text>Everyday is a bad day for these republicans, let's just keep it that way by keeping them outa the White House. You hear them on this forum and the term "Misery loves company " comes to mind. They are trying to come up with anything to get our President out and nothing now or before is going to do this. Some IRS employees will be fired and someone but our president will take the heat for Benghazi and then we non-republicans are going to expect congress to benghazi on to more important issues, such as immigration reform. But now you wait and see if in their desperate situation republicans put immigration reform on the back burner and burn much precious time on smaller prioities like benghazi and some few IRS people who broke the law.
Benghazi - The questions about the lack of security and even the reduction in security were enough to justify inquiry, but what makes no sense at all is the REASON for all those misleading changes to the talking points - why was the State Dept (and whomever else was involved) so in knots about parsing every word in the talking points and why continue the fiction about a video that they knew was fiction.
It isn't so much they made all the changes and continued to blame a video - it is WHY they did those things that on their face are so STUPID.
And do you really not want to know WHO told military support to stand down, when they were ready to go and help Americans in danger and were just begging for permission? I think you would feel differently if it were one of your family members who were seemingly abandoned.
(and no, I don't think it was Obama, I just want to know who it was and once again, WHY?)
The IRS - HOW can you not see the danger when a government entity with the absolute power the IRS wields goes after organizations that "it" (meaning those in positions of power) disagrees with. And even more frightening - having as one of the criteria for "extra scrutiny" the simple phrase "criticize the government". Do you really care so little about the 1st Amendment?
I do not believe, and the evidence supports that belief , that this was just low level employees. The IG report states DC supervisor involvement as well as involvement of IRS personnel in California, not just Ohio. But even if it were "just" low level employees, don't you think it should bother you that they felt they could get away with harassing organizations simply because THEY disagreed with them? It should.
