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.
Nice story but no dice.

You forgot who you were Hah.

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!

To republicans that rags-to-riches fable only happens to white, well-heeled , conservative white boys.
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.

How many thousands of Americans unknowingly carry an internal death sentence, maybe an aneurysm or cancer that is beyond treating? Only the tragic time and circumstances of demise await recording.

Is our nation in the same sick bed? Is Benjamin Franklin’s proud but precarious Republic, Madame, beyond saving? Grave concern is justified.

If our popular, reelected president thinks—and says out loud—that the Founders’ framework of divided powers, checks and balances, and limited, decentralized control is JUST A BIG DRAG on “progress,” and then, the nation doesn’t toss him out forthwith, is that a critical vital sign?

If our populace forgets--or never knew--the warning of America’s greatest president:“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master,” but instead, our people admire the COOL INCUMBENT who implores them to reject the voices that warn that big government leads to tyranny, then can we conclude the people have LOST the energy and vigilance that history has always demanded of free people?

If the president’s implausible account of current scandals is true—

“I didn’t direct the IRS to stomp conservatives! That was low level scoundrels! There’s no plot to abuse the media…the Justice Department just kinda’ went rogue on the Associated Press! And my Brother Holder was recused, anyway! There’s no Benghazi cover-up! My administration simply laundered and sanitized the account of slaughtered American diplomats and protectors as part of a petty, bureaucratic spitting contest between CIA and State! My fingerprints are nowhere near the bloody scene! Hell! After I was briefed, I split to pack for Vegas; any questions about where I was are ‘offensive’, you racist!”

--Then does it reveal that, beyond this current maladministration, we suffer under the accumulated, metastasizing mass of an imperious, arbitrary bureaucracy? Do we live under Leviathan, that can, for its own self-serving reasons, ruin any one of us, if and when it chooses?

How, exactly, does a free people overthrow an abusive bureaucracy that, as David Axelrod asserts, is too vast for even the president to be aware of, let alone control?

Oh__the other day I had to straighten out Carol on "historically black" colleges and then today one of the TV talking heads was going on about Morehouse being all male and all black.

Well it is all male__but a quick look at the Morehouse 2013 baseball roster proves that it's not "all black."

Pro-life is really a misnomer for the radical right--they really don't give a gnat's fart about human beings after they're born, want to deny them health care and education and food; keep the death penalty moving on an express lane; make sure that the insane don't have to stop to reload in min-massacre...yeah, that's really PRO-life...

The fun part is going to be when Obama beats the Republicans(again) and his popularity soars.

Americans don't care much for azzholes going after our president for no reason.

All this will probably shrink the rightwing base even more.

Maybe you should actually open the dictionary instead of just propping your bong on it.

Recent criticism of the use of myriad as a noun, both in the plural form myriads and in the phrase a myriad of, seems to reflect a mistaken belief that the word was originally and is still properly only an adjective. As the entries here show, however, the noun is in fact the older form, dating to the 16th century. The noun myriad has appeared in the works of such writers as Milton (plural myriads) and Thoreau (a myriad of), and it continues to occur frequently in reputable English. There is no reason to avoid it.

CNN poll: 59% approve of GOP handling of Benghazi scandal

But a CNN/ORC International survey released Sunday morning also indicates that congressional Republicans are not overplaying their hand when it comes to their reaction to the three controversies that have consumed the nation’s capital over the past week and a half. And the poll finds that a majority of Americans take all three issues seriously.…

Not all male, and just a "handful" of whites.
