It's about time.

From the refusal to pursue prosecution of voter intimidation and leaked information of systemic reverse racism to Fast and Furious to intimidation of the press and whistleblowers, this justice department is anything but just.

Is he investigating McCain who is scrutinizing Apple's tax avoidance strategies? Or is he only going after Lerner for scurtinizing the TEA Party's tax avoidance strategies because she is a woman?

The voters will remember the GOP TEA Birther's war on Women in the next election cycle.

No question that this is the MOST corrupt Adminstartion in America History.

And, considering that the Obama Administration has been PROTECTED by the propaganda of the Main-Stream Media, it is likely than more scandals are out there.

Such Bull shit you idiot. Forgot Nixon? Forgot how Reagan sold weapons to Iran and funneled the proceeds to a corrupt Nicaraguan death squad you imbecile?
This shit was all made up - at least the Bengazzi issue was - already proven that it was REPUBLICANS who altered the supposed e-mails, and not from an internal source, as you twits want to desperately believe.
IRS? You don't even know the laws regarding 501 C4 organizations, when the wording was in fact changed (1959 - I'll make it simple for you), and the fact that 501 C4 organization's, regardless of left or right affiliation, under the initial wording of the law, had no right claiming tax exempt status.
Learn the actual laws, AND history you idiot. You have no place posting in any political forum when your knowledge of politics is on a 3rd grade level at best.
No one died during Watergate. Obama has the death of a federal agent, Fast & Furious, the death of an Ambassador in Libya on his resume. Nixon was almost impeached for using the IRS as an enforcer to attack his enemies. OBAMA HAS DONE THE EXACT SAME THING SO MUCH THAT YOU COULD QUESTION THE OUTCOME OF THE 2012 ELECTION!! Is this the revenge for the 2000 election? Are you proud of the thug we have in the WH? Obama is the perfect example of the oppressed (in his mind) becoming the oppressor! Take a bow and be proud of the criminal-in-chief, you voted for him!!

Obama has created an administration that makes the corruption of the Nixon days pale by comparison. Enemies lists, coverups, utilization of government agencies to hound, harass and intimidate. It's the nightmare all over, and then some.

The pernicious corruption is so pervasive, it can't be dealt with by a Holder lead Justice Dept anymore than John Mitchell could have been trusted with investigating the Nixon WH.

Will Obama be made to resign? Naaaah, the media will prop him up. Will he be impeached? Possibly. His chief of staff and chief counsel were in on the scandal reports. It is improbable at best no one let the prez in on the goings on. As for the wiretaps. We've got Holder saying it was the most serious threat to national security that he'd encountered, yet we're to believe he kept it from the commander in chief. Will this continue on past the departure of Obama and end with criminal prosecution ala Nixon's cronies? I would bet yes.

Even the dimmest of bulbs would have swallow what the WH is serving.

Bring on the independent prosecutor.

All these investigations are getting us no-where with the rotten to the core democrats. It's time to take things into our own hands. Stand up to them and you will find out what cowards they really are. They back right down like the little creepy cowards they are. Tell them like it is. Don't be afraid to embarrass them in public. They deserve it.
It works for me every time. They know deep inside they are no damn good. That makes it much easier to give them hell and watch them take it. Target my kids because they are not democrats?????? I DON'T THINK SO YOU SCUM BAGS.

Deaths under the Bush administration - this will include not only embassies attacked, but civilian deaths - because, unlike you, I believe all life is sacred - not merely an ambassador's'

"Where was all that concern for our men and women serving in embassies and consulates across the globe when all the other attacks and killings occurred?

Like in 2002 when the US Consulate in the Karachi, Pakistan, was attacked and 10 were killed?

Or in 2004 when the US embassy in Uzbekistan was attacked and two were killed and another nine injured?

How about in 2004, when the US Consulate in Saudi Arabia was stormed and 8 lost their lives?

There is more: In 2006, armed men attacked the US Embassy in Syria and one was murdered.

Then in 2007 a grenade was thrown at the US Embassy in Athens.

In 2008, the US Embassy in Serbia was set on fire.

In 2008, bombings in the US Embassy in Yemen killed 10.

Notice the dates, all before the Obama administration."

Notice how none of these attacks WERE EVEN IN IRAN?

And many deaths occurred - or maybe you also forgot the Reagan Administrations involvement in the Israeli / Lebanon war - where 241 service men were killed by a suicide bomber you dolt!

"American peacekeeping forces in Beirut, a part of a multinational force during the Lebanese Civil War who had been earlier deployed by Reagan, were attacked on October 23, 1983. The Beirut barracks bombing resulted in the deaths of 241 American servicemen and the wounding of more than 60 others by a suicide truck bomber."

Don't EVER equate the atrocities of prior administrations in comparison to what happened under many other republican administrations - you look foolish attempting to even do so.
