According to two different polls, one by CNN/ORC International survey and the other Gallup, Obama’s approval rating has largely remained unchanged or gone up since Republicans went all-in with the run of “scandals” this past week.
Poor republicants!
psssssssssst look at Rasmussen.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty percent (50%) now disapprove.

Today’s figures include 26% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13

What scandal?
People claim tax exemptions on their income tax
return. Sometimes the IRS wants these people to justify the exemption. You know, like deducting
your cat? People try and they get turned down.
Does that mean they are being targeted?
Some group applies for tax exempt status and the
IRS wants to know why they should have an exemption.
Is that targeting?
Tea-party cry babies need to grow up.
Do you support the government asking what you and your family read? How you vote? Who you associate with? How about just listing all that information here on topix?

No.

Teabaggers didn't mean to mind at the time, as many were spouting back in the day " If you're doing nothing wrong, what are you hiding"?

IRS TARGETED conservative groups.
President Obama's rhetoric foments hate, distrust.
Obama's interview with Univision radio, he said:
'we're going to PUNISH OUR ENEMIES and we're going to REWARD OUR FRIENDS who stand with us on issues that are important to us'--
This is the usual rhetoric oozing from President Obama's lips.
You know a lot of GOP reps are scared of losing to Tea Party candidates. Maybe they are in this too.

Huh?

You must be one, you seem to be protesting now but did you then?

When it was created, signed and passed into law, the "Patriot" Act.

You would be the first, congratulations.

Speaking of Benghazi, have they found out which
Republicans were forging the talking points the
media were talking about?

Is it safe to say that Benghazi has blown up in the face
of Republican forgers? Like Fast and Furious?

I was the only person in the country to protest the patriot act? I do not think so. I was one of many. I protest in many ways- who I vote for, letters to the editor, signing petitions, speaking out etc. What do you do?

Wrong. Bush and MSM were in bed just as much as Obama and MSM.
