Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Lerner will be called back again.

But please provide proof of your ridiculous claim she was "forced" to do anything.

Lerner became the star of her own production. Issa and Boehner just let her bomb on her own.

She makes herself look foolish by being called back again.

Is there no limit to the liberals' depths of denial?

Which is only going to heighten the already growing suspicion of his involvement even more.
It would be great if the grand finale were Obama firing them to save face and them spilling their guts because they were fired.
We can only dream.
How can they 'spill their guts' after they have already testified under oath that they did nothing wrong? They'd be in more trouble than the President .

B*llshyt....I suggest you check laws
Lerner’s lawyer, William W. Taylor, adamantly disagreed.“The law is clear that a witness does not waive her Fifth Amendment rights not to testify as to facts by asserting that she is innocent of the wrongdoing with which she is accused,” he wrote in an e-mail.
In an interview, Taylor said Lerner’s comments—which gave a thumbnail sketch of her division’s operation and the two investigations it has spurred in the offices of the Treasury inspector general and FBI — didn’t delve into the facts.“It simply said,‘This is what you guys accused me of, I’m not guilty of it.’”
http://news.yahoo.com/irs-official-fifth-amen...
ames Duane, a Fifth Amendment expert at Regent University, explained to New York magazine why Lerner was within her rights.(Duane made his comments after the hearing ended and before Issa made his announcement.)
“When [someone is] involuntarily summoned before grand jury or before legislative body, it is well settled that they have a right to make a ‘selective invocation,’ as it’s called, with respect to questions that they think might raise a meaningful risk of incriminating themselves,” Duane said.
He also believes that “even if Ms. Lerner had given answers to a few questions — five, ten, twenty questions — before she decided,‘That’s where I draw the line, I’m not answering any more questions,’ she would be able to do that as well.”
That theory will now get tested, since Issa indicated he may call Lerner back to testify again, without the ability to cite the Fifth Amendment.
Stan Brand, a former general counsel for the House of Representatives, told Politico that Lerner could have an issue if she waived her rights in prior appearances before Congress.
Prior to Lerner’s appearance, her attorney, William W. Taylor III, wrote to Issa and explained why his client was taking the Fifth Amendment.
Taylor said that prior claims by Issa that Lerner had provided misleading information to Congress on four occasions left his client without another option.
“She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course,” Taylor said.
but not to worry, as I sure this will come up against a judge
Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who oversaw exempt organizations during the admitted targeting of conservative political groups, could be held in contempt and even go to jail after her appearance at a congressional hearing earlier in the day.

Lerner made a brief opening statement — insisting she had "done nothing wrong" — before invoking her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. Some legal scholars, including Dershowitz, have said that in giving the opening statement, Lerner may have waived her Fifth Amendment protections.

"She's in trouble. She can be held in contempt," Dershowitz told "the Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "Congress ... can actually hold you in contempt and put you in the Congressional jail."

Dershowitz, who helped advise O.J. Simpson's defense team, said Lerner "should never have been allowed" to make her opening statement.

"You can't simply make statements about a subject and then plead the Fifth in response to questions about the very same subject," Dershowitz said. "Once you open the door to an area of inquiry, you have waived your Fifth Amendment right... you've waived your self-incrimination right on that subject matter."

You just can't keep a good man down.
According to a recent CNN poll, 59% approve of the GOP's handling of these scandals.

59% say that the U.S government could have prevented the attack in Benghazi. 59% also say the GOP reacted appropriately.

It's the same story on the IRS controversy. 54% say the GOP in Congress has not overplayed its hand.

The more Obama is implicated in the IRS coverup, the more his numbers will drop.

Only the clueless who voted for him both times and who have no idea what's going on will continue to think the emperor is still wearing clothes. And skip to the bank with their welfare checks.

How stupid is the Tea Party?

Thev file for a tax exempt status reserved for non profit organization that advocate for social issues. Their main concern cannot be politics.

So these dumbasses in the Tea Party apply for this status using the name "Tea Party ThIs" or Tea Party that"

They announce their political agenda & then cry about it when the IRS sees this & knows they may not qualify.

Then the dumbasses whine to Congress & the Whiner-in -chief Issa jumps in to start yet another investigation.

This is just how stupid the Tea Party is.

Aunt Bettie Lou , I suggest that if you are going to cite the 9/11 Commission Report then you ought to better quote the people who were responsible for preparing the report, Lee Hamilton and Thomas McKean(A Republican and Democrat)

<quoted text> Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton did not hold your naive notion of Bush43 'great assistance'. "Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton must have been waiting all holiday long to launch this grenade against the Administration just as Congress returns and the torture tape inquiry heats up.
MORE than five years ago, Congress and President Bush created the 9/11 commission.
[snip]
The commission’s mandate was sweeping and it explicitly included the intelligence agencies. But the recent revelations that the C.I.A. destroyed videotaped interrogations of Qaeda operatives leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot. Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation." ..."Of note, Kean and Hamilton clearly include the White House among those who obstructed the Commission’s work.
There could have been absolutely no doubt in the mind of anyone at the C.I.A.— or the White House — of the commission’s interest in any and all information related to Qaeda detainees involved in the 9/11 plot. Yet no one in the administration ever told the commission of the existence of videotapes of detainee interrogations." Check this out: http://emptywheel.firedoglake.com/2008/01/02/...

why did O'bama lose the war in Iraq? and now you are telling us that he is going to lose the war in Afghanistan? why is he still there if he plans on losing?

The Fifth Amendment is not selective.
Lois Lerner's performance is like Jody Arias testifying that she didn't kill her boyfriend and then pleading the Fifth when cross-examination started.
Her $1,000 per hour lawyer must have been sleeping.
But something like the 2nd is?

wow.
