We consider this a wonderful teaching opportunity to remind people that the Obama's Fascist IRS is the main enforcement agency of Obamacare..

No, a "good campaign strategy" is using an attack against the IRS for doing their job in weeding out politically motivated groups seeking tax-exempt status as a smoke screen for their anger at the IRS for going after conservative tax cheats.

FACT: The IRS was more than justified in assuming that any group with "Tea Party" in their name needed additional scrutiny. The only reason conservatives can't see the obvious is because they are clueless twits.

Former Bachmann Staffer: Lies Okay Because Her Constituency Believes Them

WALDRON: Well the knee jerk reaction to your question is, well no one's perfect Martin. What do you expect? On the other hand, your question is serious. I believe that she has made misstatements. Knowing her as I do and as well as I do, I know that she doesn't sit down and make up a list of deliberate lies.

What I do know is that she can be misinformed. What I do know is that she can misunderstand and what I do know is that she has made a lot of mistakes and she has misspoken and I'm certain that it's caused her embarrassment.

With respect, those statements are not always intended for the Washington Post or Politico or even MSNBC Martin Bashir, but those statements are for her constituency. She represents a constituency that believes much of what she says.

The idea behind ethanol was to reduce imports. American made ethanol replacing foreign oil. Money sped here & not there.
Taxpayer money spent subsidizing farmers and ethanol producers, damaging automobile engines, wasting energy, and driving up the cost of food.

Typical Democrat plan.

Benghazi: Poll Says the Only People Who Care Are Republicans
Only 21% of Americans think that Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history. forty-one percent (41%) of Republicans think so compared to only 10% of Democrats and 20% of Independents.

Do you want criminals, sellouts, liars, Carnival Barkers and thieves working at the IRS and in the Fascist obama administration? Of course you do....

The economy still sucks, unemployment is still high, terrorists are becoming bolder, IRS is NAZI, the government is scandal-ridden with criminal democrats, and Obama is responsible...

Defending the IRS and a sellout Obama bin Lying is an excellent Fascisat campaign strategy in 2014 you idiot, recommended for all democrats...

Reuters has obtained part of a yet to be released report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) that confirms that the IRS was targeting groups on the left and right who focused their activities on advocating for expanding or limiting of the size of the government. The report also states that the screening process was not influenced by the Obama administration, and that none of the groups screened were denied tax exempt status.

Without the claims of a partisan witch hunt against conservative groups, this latest Republican fueled Obama scandal is set to lose all of its sizzle.

The real reason why Republicans are desperately trying to drum up a scandal here is because they don’t want the IRS forcing their dark money groups to pay taxes. The IRS is threatening their Citizens United fueled political slush fund, and Republicans want it to stop. Republicans are trying to bully the IRS into backing off.

It turns out that Obama isn’t Richard Nixon after all. He wasn’t using the IRS to attack his enemies. In their own bungling way, the IRS was trying to deal with the problems caused by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. First, Benghazi crashes and burns, and now the IRS scandal could be fading fast.

Republicans will pull from their usual “Obama scandal” playbook and hold lots of hearings, but thing looks to be on the fast track to nowhere. Congressional Republicans will try their best, but the IRS “scandal” could backfire and end up making the case for why we need to get rid of Citizens United ASAP.

Voter fraud plot thickens:

Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office spokesman, Ed Griffin, told NBC there is an ongoing investigation targeting multiple individuals involving alleged absentee ballot fraud. He confirmed that at least three search warrants were served Friday.
The investigation was launched in December 2012 by the Miami-Dade Elections Fraud Task Force after several voter fraud allegations and the recommendation of a grand jury, Griffin said.

Absentee ballots and early voting are open invitations to fraud.

All voting should be on Election Day, in person, unless the person can declares in writing that they are unable to make it to the polls.

Lady, that is about the most asinine, heartless thing I've heard. I can't imagine anything more hateful towards our vets than allowing one who is suffering from PTSD free access to a gun.
WTF is wrong with you. Suicide by firearms outstrips the homicide by guns. Right now we are losing 18 vets a day to suicide, and you want them to be able to walk right up and buy a gun without a background check....so they can blow their brains out.
We started an unnecessary war and to protect all those little pro-war chickenhawks the administration who initiated the war didn't see fit to start a draft. Thus, our troops were forced into multiple war zone deployments. Many troops have completed 5 or more combat tours. Many are suffering from PTSD
THE SUICIDE RATE IS 18 A DAY
18 A DAY
So, you would treat veterans like criminals.

The former president, Alfonso Portillo, 61, led Guatemala from 2000 to 2004. Two years ago, he was acquitted of embezzlement charges in Guatemala, but by then he had been indicted in Manhattan, where federal prosecutors accused him of conspiring to launder millions of dollars in his country’s money through bank accounts in the United States and elsewhere.

After losing an extradition fight, Mr. Portillo was flown on Friday to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. On Tuesday, he was taken before Judge Robert P. Patterson Jr. of Federal District Court in Manhattan, who advised him of his rights and asked if he wanted to plead not guilty.

So, the Voting Rights Act is still holding up well and doing what it was intended to do as well as voting registration thus proves republicans were wrong that stricter voter fraud laws needed to be passed.

<quoted text>So,you and Galt try to argue that since Ethanol isn't the best substitute for conventional oil that all scientific advancement in developing alternative biomass fuels and renewable energy solar, wind, etc. are equally 'losers' and we have to just accept the consequences of depleting a finite natural resource(oil),and the rising costs of exploiting it and destabilizing the planet's climate. If people like you and Galt made up the majority of our 'greatest generation' in WW II then Fascism would have won, and America would be a isolated, bunker-state rather than the leader of the free world.
Ethanol is proven to require more energy to produce than it provides.

Solar is extremely geographically limited and available only on sunny days.

Wind also has geographical limitations and many days are calm.

So, do you want reliable power, 27/7/365, or not?

You use the MSM a Barack Hussein Obama news source, so... Your 'facts' are definitely tilted favorably toward making him look good.
