"Then all of them were audited by the IRS"
Oh and p.s., those on the left have been targeted by the IRS for decades now. I'm sure your faux outrage doesn't extend to that. It's never pretty but it goes back decades and most administrations have some accountablity here.
IRS, the press, benghazi, fox news, soon we will hear about HHS. It goes on and on and this is just the tip of the iceburg.
Everyone here points to bush or past administrations but the cold hard fact is this is obama's turn. He said he would change things in washinton, he would have a transparent administration, pelosi was going to drain the swamp. No red states no blue states just the united states. That's a joke.
Obama and his cronies are corrupt and the truth is finally coming out. When my kids were young they tried to point to other people when they were in trouble. Bobby down the street did this or mary's mother lets her do that.
I would tell them that they are responsible for their own actions. Obama and his crew are responsible for their own actions. No one in this administration is taking responsibility, the youtube scam is one example.
Progressives can bring up past presidents all they want but I'm afraid good old bush isn't going to help you now. This administration is corrupt, we are just beginning to see what's behind closed doors.
This is chicago politics and this is how obama rose to power. If the press had vetted him properly the american people would never have elected him. The guy is corrupt and it is only going to bet worse for him.
What a wasted commentary; saying a president is corrupt is like saying every night is dark. The only ones that weren't in the last 150 yrs were possibly Truman & Eisenhower, and I'm not even sure about them. Blaming the press is also feeble. Otherwise, this what I call get over the election already.
And here's the bad news; if your party doesn't connect with the American people, then what Ted Cruz has feared may come home to roost. To wit; Senator Ayotte's poll numbers have plummeted after her vote on the gun background check; maybe this has to do just a little with the related demonstrations I have seen in Nashua & Manchester, as well as the recent NRA sponsored TV ads propping her up, which is ludicrous since she doesn't have an election for 3 yrs.
No other President has used the IRS as a tool against his political enemies article 2 of impeachment against Nixon was him discussing using it against George Schultz on the Nixon tapes, but he never actually did.
It certainly looks like this administration has used it against conservative organizations and private donors to Romney but how far it goes up the ladder we don't yet know because it's being stonewalled at every level.
Lerner claiming the 5th today. Past head of the IRS don't know nothing, recently fired head don't know nothing, Obama don't know nothing.
Sure gives this story legs.
Only Partly agree. What Lerner did today was inexcusable, especially after that bogus opening statement; and for the moment one cannot assume what Obama knows, although it sure looks like he did. As Rep Issa suggested, they may have to grant immunity in order to try to get to the bottom of this.
However, one can say the same about the DOJ scandal via Alberto Gonzalez & supoena ignoring Harriet Miers; wasn't that unique? And Cheney with his war profiteering excuse regarding fake Niger Uranium Cake & related intelligence outing . You don't see that every day. Ditto Iran Contra & Watergate; also, a metaphor involving what Nixon did and didn't do vs potential IRS behavior in contrast to Watergate is ridiculous. And why was JFK killed? You reap what you sow. The great FDR & LBJ were dirty too. Regardless, Bush used the IRS for similar if not worse aims in '04 & '05 ; and FWIW the current IRS regime has bipartisan senior staff who targeted other groups as well, including liberal ones; not that that makes it allright.
Your guy is corrupt, he is corrupt in most if not all of his administration. You can try to change the subject to others in the past but it won't work.
You can try to put me down by saying my post is a waste, don't care. You can say most if not all the presidents in the past are as corrupt as obama but it's not true. You are allowed to keep dreaming though.
Obama is in deep trouble, pure and simple.
