witch hunt? I think not....

Repeat:

Like I said, a GOP witch hunt. Their claim is that because the "IRS and Cummings' staff asked for nearly identical information from True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht about her organization, they "obviously " were coordinating and improperly sharing confidential taxpayer information."

When a Congressional committee, in this case the House Oversight Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings, contacts the IRS for "publicly available" (notice how your source conveniently left out that little tidbit) information on a tax exempt group, the IRS has an obligation to research it and get back to them. That is what they did.

Here is an e-mails that the GOP is using in their witch hunt:

From: Barre, Catherine M
Sent: Friday, January 25, 2013 02:58 PM Eastern Standard Time
To: Lerner Lois G; Paz Holly 0; Marks Nancy J
Subject: House Oversight Committee Minority Staff

The house oversight committee (not the subcommittee of ways and means) has requested any PUBLICLY AVAILABLE INFORMATION on an entity that they believe has filed for c3 status.
They do not have a waiver.
The entity is KSP True the Vote EIN .
They believe the entity has filed tax returns in the past and would like copies of those if they are publicly available in addition to any other information that is publicly available about the entity's tax-exempt status."

At no time in any e-mail is there any indication that the IRS shared any information with Cummings that was not publicly available. Your source is very careful in their wording... "Neither Cummings nor the IRS shared these requested documents with the Oversight Majority." Hard for Cummings to share something he never received.

Witch hunt.

Okay Carol, let's go with the Wal-Mart video first. I don't know what point you're trying to make but the video clearly shows that raising the wages of Wal-Mart cashiers to the point where they wouldn't have to depend on SNAP benefits would only raise prices 1.4% or one cent on their store brand Mac and Cheese and save US taxpayers $300,000,000. So what's your point?
And so a drone crashed in Pennsylvania while on a training flight. This is the President's fault how? There have been crashes involving piloted aircraft also.
on April 21, 2007 A United States Navy Blue Angels McDonnell-Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, BuNo 162437, crashes into a residential neighborhood while performing at an airshow in Beaufort, South Carolina, in the United States, killing the pilot. Military investigators blame pilot for his fatal crash. A report obtained by The Associated Press said that Lieutenant Commander Kevin Davis got disoriented and crashed after not properly tensing his abdominal muscles to counter the gravitational forces of a high-speed turn.
On December 8, 2008 A USMC McDonnell-Douglas F/A-18D Hornet, BuNo 164017, crashed into a neighborhood, University City, coming down two miles (3 km) west of MCAS Miramar, California, just after the Marine pilot, Lieutenant Dan Neubauer, from VMFAT-101, ejected. Four fatalities on the ground. The Hornet was being flown from the USS Abraham Lincoln. The commander of the fighter squadron involved in the crash, its top maintenance officer and two others have been relieved of duty as a result of the crash investigation. The pilot has been grounded pending a further review, Maj. Gen. Randolph Alles announced in March 2009.[
So was these were George Bush's fault? Again, what's your point?
As to the unemployment, what has your GOP done on this matter other than block job creation legislation and make matters worse by refusing to extend federal unemployment benefits?

Character, integrity and honesty. Words that you have only heard of but have no meaning to a flatheaded flatfoot like you. Tell us all again how you ran from claiming that you were a Marine until I started asking questions and then you didn't want to talk about it any more...But you are well qualified to talk about dishonesty, creepy dude.

This was probably already discussed sometime today...but the U.S. sending two additional ballistic missile destroyers to Japan to counter the North Korean threat and saying China must better respect its neighbors is like saying Obama is going to give China a time-out if they don't play nice.
It's the tensions building up that could lead to the other shoe dropping which was mentioned the other day. Weak leadership in what should be a strong country leads to vulnerability and bad guys taking advantage of it.
It's Obama's naivety about the world shining through once again.
Sure Carol, let's just get into a military confrontation with a nuclear armed power with an unstable leader. What could possibly go wrong with that idiot?

Just because I comment how Bush lied to get over 4000 US solders killed & Tens of thousands of people killed does not mean anything about the innocents killed in drone strikes. Drone strikes kill far fewer people all out war & invasions.

I do find it pathetic that you people love Bush for killing those 4000 soldiers in a war based on lied that had nothing to do with terrorism or WMDs.

Terrorists need to know they are targeted & when they get near their friends & family, they put those lives at risk. And those who know the terrorist need to know they are at risk when they are near them.

Look, assh*le, I was of draft age & did not get drafted. I had many friends that were & some that did not come back.

A low life POS like you wouldn't give a sh*t if your friends were killed or changed forever by a stupid war.

I never attacked vets. You are lying.

Even the Koch Bros. secretly "Like" Obamacare. "Charles and David Koch may have spent millions of dollars opposing President Obamaís Affordable Care Act, but that didnít stop them from benefiting from the law. The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Koch Industries received $1.4 million in subsidies from a $5 billion program established by the Affordable Care Act to help employers and states maintain coverage for individuals 55 and older who are not yet eligible for Medicare.

ThinkProgress first noticed that Koch applied for the program in August of 2010, along with other critics of the law, including state-run programs in Texas and more than a dozen members of the board of directors of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has spent millions to support Republican causes."

This isnít the first time critics of the law have taken advantage of [Obamacare ] provisions. Just last week, Republican members of Congress praised the Obama administration for keeping open a call center dedicated to enrolling people into the law after the initial enrollment period, while others have requested grants funded under the ACA. Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) even encouraged some Texans to sign-up for coverage in the federally-run health care exchange in an effort to save the state money."
