Jan 9, 2014 Full story: The Washington Post 35

Two Republican lawmakers and a conservative legal group are crying foul over the Justice Department's selection of a Democratic donor to lead the agency's investigation into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of advocacy groups during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles.

didn't Obama make a speech to some Hispanics in which he told them that it was time to punish our enemies? He wasn't talking bout no al quaeda either, he was talking bout fellow Americans. What a honky hater he turned out to b e.

Obama should appoint a tea party person.
Or one of the fair and balanced people from Fox News.

Guffaw!

Whom ever has the responsibility it's damn sure a bet they can't be any more corrupt and agenda driven than Issa of the mythical scandal hunt team in Congress.

Here's a guy in Issa who sits on a stack of bibles and lie like a Persian rug.

Here's a guy one step short of being a felon chairing an investigative committee in Congress.

That has a classical banana republic tone if there ever was.

That's an exaggeration, the lowest level was lying about weapons in Iraq and serving up 5000 of our troops to needless slaughter, after giving up the pursuit of Osama Bin Laden who murdered more than 3000 Americans in NYC and Washington, DC

I know, change the topic and deflect.

So I guess liberals and the MSM would be okay with a conservative admin using the IRS against them? When they're busted, it's okay if they send a buddy in to "investigate"?

We know the answer, just look at the hysteria over a one day traffic inconvenience. You would think it was the end of the world.

Yeah we know MSNBC won't ever admit it but the woman that died...well it seems her family had already came out and said that they traffic delay stuff had NOTHING to do with her death. Of course that would be the facts, and we know the liberal news never lets a little thing like facts get in their way of a good deflection from Obama.

Not even the most die hard progressive expects anything less. Why even waste the time pretending to do any kind of findings report when everyone already knows the outcome? Obama truly believes we are the dumbest bunch of morons he has ever encountered to even think he needs to do this to "prove" he is doing something, which no one believes, or Obama is the dumbest moron we have ever elected. Don't waste our time, or anymore our money. I'm pretty sure this proves Obama's ignorance pretty clearly. It still seems impossible for the man to be as stupid as he keeps proving himself to be though. Truly unbelievable, kind of like the findings of this "investigation" will be!

The IRS scandal is another deflection by Republicans. Anyone possessing better than third grade reading skills reading the limitations on 501C Groups and any involvement with political activity could not be confused by the IRS scrutiny of Groups applying for tax exempt privilege..

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-tege/rr2007-41.pdf
Exempt organizations; political cam­paigns. This ruling provides 21 examples
illustrating the application of the facts and circumstances to be considered to deter­mine whether an organization exempt from income tax under section 501(a) of the
Code as an organization described in sec­tion 501(c)(3) has participated in, or inter­vened in (including the publishing or dis­tributing of statements), any political cam­paign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office

The IRS is doing it's job to ensure compliance with the letter of the law.

We all know the Republicans don't like rules.

The fact in that story from the family is that is their collective OPINION..........

The Facts surrounding cardiac arrest and proven by studies is any delay of emergency personnel response decreases the likelihood of a patient surviving cardiac arrest.

The FACTS are you and the rest of us do not know any of the health issues with this person that died. The heart attack may very well not have been the actual reason the person died. I know from very current loss of family member that did die because my mom's heart stopped. It was a blessing that it happened because it was quicker and less cruel than the death she would have had from her kidney shutting down and the other issues that were killing her but would have been a little slower and more suffering would have occurred. You don't know anything but what the liberal news is trying to make out of situation that would favor their side. Using her death to make political points is so sick it really shows the low depths the progressives will go to just for politics. The family's "opinion" is full of a hell of lot more information and facts then MSNBC and their pathetic political game.
