No, it only generated a call by the teabagger congress for a 10th hearing because they didn't like what they heard in the first NINE.

Until someone backs up what the Rannity and Limbaughtomy "theory" is, teabaggers will continue to embarrass themselves.

The White House already stated the CIA were the ones who blamed the attack on a video, 6 MONTHS ago.

The "selective" teabagger reasoning and comprehension are astoundingly borderline retarded.

Poor teabagger.

Where are them "investigative" teabagger reporters who can quote Obama ordering these cabinet organizations to do such things?

OR "liberal" ones"?

OR a "whistle blower"?

Or ANYONE?

ALL teabaggers have are opinion from FAUX and other teabaggers.

They all CLAIM it but have NO PROOF.

There must be ONE somewhere, maybe one who was fired or something that can back the teabagger rhetoric.

So far?

ZILCH, NADA.

FAUX spends millions for political consultants, why can't they spend that much for bribery?

Poor teabaggers

Dick Cheney folks did it!

. Karl Rove hates Tea Party groups; T-bagrs have diverted donation money from traditional GOP groups to Tea Party groups

. Most folks in the IRS leadership have been appointed/hired by the Dick Cheney/Karl Rove administration

. IRS Leadership owe their jobs to Bush/Cheney/Rove (They'll do anything to help Rove)

. IMHO, Steve Miller won't name names: he's protecting Karl Rove/Dick Cheney's folks....

Obama has nothing to do with this internal fight between GOP and Tea-Party groups

If Oblamer is so out of the loop in all these high level Government agencies that hes reduced to blaming and removing himself from the decision making process hes not doing his job as the CEO of America.
Or,isn't competent enough to be up to the task.
Either way,he should be fired or take the high road and resign.

They can't prove any Obama involvement because there is none.
. This IRS drama has been the result of in internal battle between the GOP establishment and Tea-Party groups over money....

. IRS leadership has been mostly appointed by the GOP establishment. They were doing a hit job on T-Party groups to help Karl Rove (Less T-Party groups = More donation money for the GOP establishment)

. Karl Rove has been openly fighting T-Party groups because T-bagrs had been defeating candidates supported by the GOP establishment....

. T-Party groups were competitors of Karl Rove's group....

. Most

You sound soooo STUPID!

1. No president is God; they only know stuff that has been reported to them

2. There is no evidence that the IRS Leadership has reported their hit-job on T-Party to Obama

3. T-Party groups had been defeating GOP establishment candidates

4. IRS folks in Leadership positions have mostly been appointed/hired by Bush/Cheney/Rove

5. Rove had been very open of his hatred for T-Party leaders; so, IRS Leadership were trying to help their boss, the GOP establishment by trimming the number of T-Party groups

6. IMHO, if Mr. Miller must name names to help uncover the truth, he would have to name Karl Rove and other GOP gurus....

. This IRS scandal is an internal Republican fighting over campaign donation contribution...

Unlike Pro-Tea Party groups, Pro-Obama groups were not in direct competition with Karl Rove groups for political donations from Republicans

. So, GOP appointed IRS leaders had no vested interest in blocking Pro-Obama groups (donation to pro-Obama groups would never go to Karl Rove groups anyway....)

. Bush appointed IRS leaders were trying to protect GOP-backed candidates from T-Party/Republican cannibalism....

This was a GOP hit on T-Party groups to protect establishment candidates from folks like Christine O'Donell, Sherron Angle, Todd Akin and Rick Santorum...
