$50,000,000 for IRS conferences

that's the WASTE in government, perpetuated by President Obama

Obama lies just like every other President. He is no God, no 'gift' to the American people.

If anything, President Obama's lack of experience has caused much damage to the USA.

People should make no mistake about this, It is what happens when a govt or a govt agency does when it has too much money and or power. Congress should defund much of the IRS' activities and fire ALL people involved.

Even the ACLU is now referring to the Obama Regime as "Orwellian". How could Americans have been STUPID enough to empower Obama and his minions?

How do parents explain the seemingly endless stream of despicable actions of the Regime to our kids without bursting into tears and begging their forgiveness?

Lavish spending is an easy charge to prove. Every agency spends that way. Always have, but all of a sudden we are gonna stop it on Obama watch? No way! This is just politics as usual and most are not gonna be taken in by it. But the misplaced unwise attempts to malign Obama will lengthen and widen his coattails in 2014.
The best thing is the cons will never get a clue and will continue and heighten their nonsense.

"IRS officials face grilling over lavish spending"

Is it too much to ask Media to be accurate in it's reporting?

Face ACCUSATIONS OF, this is the secret to the scandal noise machine, all they have to do is claim something and the media runs away with headlines STATING GUILT!!!

Since there is nothing that will stick on the targetting of Conservative groups, oh well, we'll just move on to more and more speculation and accusation and everyone will soon {feel} like it's a run away Presidency!!

It's nothing more than the fact that Republicans have no use for Governing and so are on the scandal trail 24/7 in attempts to do just that!

republicans go to the podium and say Jobs jobs jobs but get back in session and it's more Abortion bills, vote to repeal the ACA again and again uselessly, and hold these ridiculous which hunts hoping to bring the administration down!

Any chance Republicans will do as they said and bring Immigration to the discussion? Nope! Any chance Republicans will have the Budget committee hash out the budget they've been crying for for 4 years? Nope! Any chance Republicans in the house will do anything meaningful and helpful to the people or the economy? NOPE!!!!!! All scandal all the time from here on out!!!

Be sure, there might have been innapropriate actions throughout Government, as has been saidm these are all practiced by all administrations, only now, and since Jan. 2009, they mean the wopld is coming to an end!

BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!!!

IRS agents are telling the truth under oath about the conspiracy by the Obama’s tyrannical regime to use the IRS power for abusing and threatening half of the American who pay 100% of the taxes who are the conservatives Clearly, Obama feel free to destroy America day in and day out when he was able to use the IRS Federal agents as his operative henchmen army that uses abuse and horror to threaten the Obama opponents of the conservative patriotic Americans. Yet, Obama feel that he has no obstacle in moving forward to socialistic –Mozlem brother dictatorship with uncontested liberal media led by the NY Times, Washington Post, AP and Reuters. Even Hitler knew that he can control the German Nazis through health care and forcing every German to get his plan and pay for it to the German tax system. Listening to the phone calls of every American is another tyrannical means by dictatorship to overcome any opposition as the American people were sold out to Obama by using food stamps, Obama phone to the illiterate, poor, willingly unemployed, willingly disable and foreign invaders from the Middle east and all over the world.

Or when Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales fired district attourneys at the DOJ because they wouldn't single out and prosecute Democrats!

"Gonzales denied that Bush's political adviser, Karl Rove, demanded last fall's ouster of then-New Mexico prosecutor David Iglesias. But the attorney general acknowledged that Rove had complained about cases in three districts, including New Mexico"

And we all know Alberto resigned in disgrace after those investigations.

And your lack of marbles has caused much damage to Topix.

Despite obstruction from the bigoted creeps on the right, Obama has already done some great things for the American people. Among them are:
-health care reform
-eliminated Osama bin Laden
-helped get rid of Gaddafi
-ended the Iraq War
-dug us out of the recession
-repealed don't ask/don't tell

There are lots more. I'd say that is pretty good for a president who "lacks experience".

Now give Topix a list of George W. Bush's accomplishments. I understand if you have to give that some thought.

Yep, about five million "dead people". Getting them to the polls was the hardest part.
