Political organizations CAN BE and ARE 501(c)(4)'s now. Where have you been? The ones we're talking about have beliefs regarding where public policy matters are concerned. As long as their organizations' activities remain within the bounds of the exemption regulatory scheme, they are golden. Here what we have is that because they disagree with your views, they're 'evil'. Talk about simpleton, boy, you're the poster child.
Youre playing stupid, or youre the dumbest person i have ever come across.

Its funny you claim to have read teh regs, because you have no idea whats in it:

 The regulations under IRC 501(c)(4) provide that promotion of social welfare does not include participation or intervention in political campaigns.
Reg. 1.501(c)(4)-1(a)(2)(ii).

President Bush is a good man, and he has too much class to politicize the IRS. He didn't need too, he wasn't surrounded by scandal. The Obama administration is awash with scandal. He really thought he could spy on the AP reporters, and they wouldn't retaliate. He could have had a free ride this term, like he had in the first one if he had not gotten cocky, and spied on his only real friends.

Benghazi - Done, fizzled out as there is nothing there

AP - DOJ has a subpoenba and followed the law, Nothing there

IRS - Tea party shouldnt get tax exempt status, as they are not social welfare organizations

Considering her ambitions, The Clintons did this same thing in 97 and 98 to conservative groups and also remember Hillary's FBI file Gate and what she was doing before the files became (cough) missing. They showed up a year later out of thin air in Hillary's office.

Your deflection is noted. The NAACP president was giving left wing political speachs which is against the qualifications of the being tax exempt. The NAACP brought it on themselves.

TEa party groups should be targeted. They are NOT social welfare orgs. They are political orgs who opens back candidates. None should get tax exempt staus. The IRS was doing its job!

Shouldn't entities which list themselves as patriots want to be in the open, pay taxes, openly support candidates and not hide what, who, how they deal with things?

I've only recently become old enough to start paying taxes, and I have to say the IRS is the one government agency which I find the most frightening! They have so much power, they can wield it to effectively destroy your life on a mere suspicion, and they are above the law for being sued or prosecuted for what they did after it's proven they shouldn't have done it.
