Report Says IRS Approved Tax-Exempt Status For Twice as Many Conservative Groups as Liberal Groups
.... the IRS does publish the names of groups that have received special scrutiny and been approved for tax-exempt status. They recently released a list of 176 organizations that have been approved since 2010, so Martin Sullivan checked each one to figure out if it was liberal or conservative. Here's what he found:
122 conservative
48 liberal/nonconservative
6 unknown
This doesn't tell us anything definitive about the entire set of groups that got special scrutiny. If the whole set is similar to the approved set, then about two-thirds were conservative and one-third liberalómost likely because of the boom in new tea party groups in 2010. But that's just a guess.
One thing isn't a guess, however: Two-thirds of the groups who were approved for tax-exempt status were conservative. If the IRS was on a partisan witch hunt against conservative groups, that's sure an odd way of showing it, isn't it?

In as much as you have all the facts please respond to this.
- How many liberal groups were denied tax exempt status?
- How long did it take to approve liberal groups requests for tax exempt status?
- How many conservative groups were denied tax exempt status?
- How long does it take for a conservative group to get approval for tax exempt status?
- How many conservative groups have waited 2 or 3 years with no answer on their request for tax exempt status?

I can hear the Rethugs already, after there is another terrorist attack on our soil, they will be screaming "Why didn't the president keep us safe"?This will come after they have done all they can to prohibit intelligence agencies from collecting information on terrorists. Idiots.
By keeping track of phone numbers called by suspected and known terrorists via their Verizon accounts, law enforcement has been able to follow a trail that leads to unknown co-conspirators...or at least they could until stupid cons exposed that practice. IMO, we will only have Republicans to blame should terrorists fall off our radar. Good job nut jobs.
What do you mean..."after there is another terrorist attack on our soil"--sounds to me like you are planning one.

Obvious observation that the media somehow fails to notice: People who make mistakes do not get promoted.

People who do exactly what you told them to do -- especially if it was a noxious thing -- get promoted.

Patriot Act Author: NSA Phone Records Grab 'Never the Intent' of Law

The author of the Patriot Act said Thursday that a secret program under which the Obama administration was collecting phone records from millions of Americans is 'excessive' and beyond the scope of the law.

So let me get this straight. The President of the United States telling the entire world a "spontaneous mob" angry about a video that left four people dead and denied any hope of rescue just to win an election is okay with you. Is that right?
The election results would have been the same regardless as Mitt and his cronies couldn't stop uttering moronic statements. I especially love that "jeep is moving to China" b.s.: That little plum alone cost him Ohio & Michigan but what do you expect from a dimwitted, privileged little white boy born with a platinum spoon in every orifice.

Lol. The president is loyal to the majority of citizens who elected him based on democratic ideals. If the people had wanted a republican president they would have elected one.
You have some nerve accusing Obama of "demonizing and diminishing republicans ever since he took office" when it is VERY WELL documented tht it was the republicans who started their anti-Obama campaign that night. Take your blinders off.
An elected president becomes the president of all the people as soon as they take the oath of office.

We don't have two presidents at any given time.

A president is obligated to reach across the aisle and respect not only the representatives of their opposition but the consitituents of those who elected them.

I challenge you to find any speech in the past four years where this president even hinted of doing this.

What you will find is a president who demonized and marginalized his opposition at every opportunity and made them the scapegoats for his own failures to compromise and provide any solutions to our most serious problems - the economy and jobs.

This president is an amateur corrupt Chicago politician.

This president is not fit to lead this nation.

If you truly think this is the best America can do and the best America has to offer - an oversized and out of control government ladened with scandals and a deficit with no end in sight - then we might as well call it a day and go home. It's all over but the cryin' anyway.

I'm not crazy about anyone who Obama considers worthy of a position in his administration - like Samantha Power - but it's not these people who deserve the scrutiny so much as those who hold the real power. Samantha Power and those like her just have the same disconnect and will never appreciate all the good this country has done because they want to focus on the bad and just do the bidding of this president.
But it was the president, himself, who said to a group of Hispanics in California, "Reward our friends, punish our enemies."
That can mean only one thing. You're either a friend of those in power who are corrupt Chicago politicians or you're their enemy.
Unless someone can interpret it any other way.
Never has a president in our history drew the line so clearly in the sand. And never before has any administration been so determined to silence their opposition.
It should concern everyone. Fortunately, it does concern the majority on both sides. Those on here are in the minority.
So you think Obama should appoint obstructionist right wingers to positions in his administration?
Don't you think at all before you start typing?

We don't need companies. Obama is now trampling all of our right all over the place.

The British uncovered Obama/Holder are now spying on all of us with cell phones.

Big Brother has finally arrived with Obama/Democrats.

Totalitarianism is not Democracy.

Obama got over 100 million peoples phone records!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, let's go back to the years of continuous, pointless, murderous wars merely to enrich political insiders and benefactors with billions in no bid government contracts .... That was much better.
