Are YOU going to apply the same standards to the Right that you do to the Left, or is it up to us to fix America's problems?:)

The same rules apply to everybody (right and left). If Bush or (god forbid) Romneys DOJ targeted MSN, Huffpost, Mother Jones, CNN, etc... Well, you get it.
Please, stay fair minded for all our sakes.
If it's not ok for "the right", it's not ok for "the left".
..EDITED....
I haven't said it's "OK" at all, and am not saying so now. I'm just saying that Righties who attack over this issue need to take into account that their side ALSO plays this game, and has done so in its turn for many years. Leftists, radicals, anti-war protestors, civil rights advocates and organizations...ALL have been targeted in the past.

Don't lecture me, pal, lecture the Right...

Insert, sit, and spin, assclown. No surprise that you repeat the usual childish and gay-baiting taunts all your other right-wing buddies here teach you.

It's not like you can THINK, after all..

We need to stop trying to point out this Administrations failures. Even if they were dense you would have to see what is before their eyes now. Three serious scandals, and even more hearings, and investigations, and the liberal press paying attention. It is true. The truth shall make them free.

Manufactured scandals get the attention of the corporate media, and the far Right jumping up and down on their hind legs. A real circus, but who's going to run the country?

Not Republicans, they're running it INTO THE GROUND.

I can't wait until the republicans in this country are completely destroyed. This IRS scandal is just another lie cooked up by stupid racist homophobic people. Obama deserves a third term. The scandal is total bullschitt

Manufactured scandals? Did the IRS Darling flee in fear of the truth last Week? Yes, she did. Did the IRS spy on the free press? Yes, they did. Were 4 people tortured, and murdered at Benghazi for no reason other then the scaredy cat President couldn't act for fear he would lose the election? Yes they did. Nothing manufactured there. Obama made his bed, now we will make him sleep in it.

Obviously we could, since things were worse under Reagan and Bush, Jr.
