Stupid idiot.
the government should not be able to use the tax code to control behavior. The Fair Tax eliminates all that nonsense.

I have noted that Progressives here wants to believe the outlier CNN poll which has Obama at 53% approval while wanting to deny 59% in the same poll thought the GOP was handling Benghazi correctly.
Sorry bra, but I don't pick cherries. I'm a realist. The truth of the matter is,nobody cares about any of those"scandals." George W Bush Fucked it up for any RepublIcan. Nobody trusts republicans after the 9/11 debacle. 9/11 marks the date the spirit of America changed for good. You don't need a poll to tell you that, you can feel it in the air!

You asked a question and I answered.

You were wondering how the IRS identified certain groups to target and I answered that it is known that big donors to Romney was targeted.

Sorry, your question had a simple answer and wasn't the stumpier you hoped it to be.

And if the Obama Administration had ignored Congressional pressure to plug leaks in the national security agencies then Darrell Issa would be holding hearings on that too. It is not what Obama does or doesn't do ,but what Obama looks like to republicans --a young black man , raised on the mean streets of Chicago who chose not to go into drugs or sports, but who had the gumption to grind out a quality college education, return home to volunteer work in his community improvement and empowerment then go into politics and succeed all the way to the White House.

Know who said this, Lily?

"But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."

Yes, that's right. It was MLK.

Looks like too many liberals and too many blacks have guzzled down the cup of bitterness and hatred.

Everyone's now a racist if they judge a man's character and not the color of his skin.

MLK is probably rolling over in his grave.

Schieffer interview with AP Pruitt

GARY PRUITT: This was very good news, but strangely, at the same time, the administration, through the press secretary and the Department of Homeland Security, were telling the American public that there was no credible evidence of a terrorist plot related to the anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden. So that was misleading to the American public. We felt the American public needed to know this story.

BOB SCHIEFFER: Now, when you got the story, at first the people who gave it to you asked you to hold it for a certain time.

GARY PRUITT: Yes. So what happened was we got this story. We went to the government–the White House, intelligence agencies–they said there’s a national security risk if you run this story, if you go with this story at this time. We respected that. We acted responsibly, we held the story.

BOB SCHIEFFER: Then?

GARY PRUITT: Then five days– we– we held it for five days. On the fifth day, we heard from high officials in two parts of the government that the national security issues had passed and at that point, we released the story.... The White House wanted to– wanted us to hold it another day because they wanted to announce this successful foiling of the plot.

BOB SCHIEFFER: So they wanted– they didn’t want to get scooped.

GARY PRUITT: I guess. I guess that– they didn’t tell us their motive, but that certainly seemed that way to us. We didn’t think that was a legitimate reason for holding the story.

How typical of the administration crew. It was not national security that motivated this administration crusade against AP, but Obama officials’ pique over being denied bragging rights.(This administration wildly leaked the details of the Osama bin Laden raid, to the horror of then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates.)

To understand how egregious this was, one should remember the administration never asked for the records. The object was not the leak but to make a show of going after leakers."

" So they wanted– they didn’t want to get scooped."

Yes, this is exactly what prompted Holder to engage in wholesale invasion of privacy.

Just say it,"At least with Joe, we'd have a whiteman for the next 3yrs." Just because you were around back then, doesn't make you an expert on MLK! Barack Obama is the epitome of what MLK's dream was about. Instead of lying to yourself because, you're not lying to me, I see right through it but, just admit you're racist along with the rest of your right wing racists & then we can move forward accordingly!

Liberals just like when they attempt to dismiss their own failures in life, will spare no accusation or flimsy excuse to explain such failures. This is why they so ardently defend the indefensible actions of the current administration. To admit and or accept that misdeeds were done would be to admit that they were taken by the same empty rhetoric that republicans have been railing against for the last 4 years.

he looks like what he is...inexperienced and incompetent and now UBER CLUELESS. he got elected only BECAUSE he is half black (not Sharpton black) and our society is at the tipping point of chosing culturally popular over substance.
