The IRS is just doing what everyone else is, profiling. Since the majority of tax evasion has been perptrated by conservative groups, the profile fits ....

... saying the IRS is wrong here, means that all of our law enforcement is wrong as well, and our military is dead wrong.

Good point. Hopefully this will lead to the total profiling of Muslims, the majority of terrorists are Muslims. And the majority of illegal aliens are Mexican. We're on a role, don't stop now.

Obama is using the IRS to go after the conservative Americans that will not support the Obama health care which gives Obama and his union parasites huge 'enforcement power' to threat the Tea Party guys by denying them medical treatment through the IRS. Will GOP losers of US Congress stand up to protect the American people from dictator Obama?

Perhaps, but not nearly as funny as progressives accepting things because Obama 'said so'. You know what I mean. We'll have open transparent government. I'll cut the deficit in half. Obamacare will save everyone money. And the best quote ever:

"I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear." Barack Obama

Now to be fair, Obama has been doing an excellent job fighting anything that might remotely be considered anti-Muslim.

No, just more of a realist. Given the attack occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 and Obama/Clinton taking ANY reference of jihadists or radical muslims out of the Benghazi 'taking points' seemed rather, shall we say, interesting. Conspiracy, cover-up or just plain incompetence is your call.
