    I think that would be to point out the appointee's probable polotical leaning, not to blame it on Bush. You guys really need to quit recycling your Memes, gets boring and predictable. Hey, when is the birth certificate thing coming back?

    Discrimination isn't a big deal? You're ok with tyranny, as long as it's as much as you can tolerate?

    POLITICAL appointees are the ones who have decided that the IRS will not identify which filings are more likely to be non-compliant
    POLITICAL appointees are the ones who terminated auditors to effect budget cuts, despite that auditors return 28 times their cost to the treasury
    the IRS worker bee employees exercised common sense that the POLITICAL employees did not
    hence the apology

    Yes because the press conference was to educate the reporters on how the IRS is structured, how the people are hired and give them a flow chart of who reports to who.

    Wonder who that low level worker who sets IRS policy works under, Homer simpson?

    Nice apology for these scumbags.

    In front of the storm, the cowards tend to go inside the house. With that said, why bring up a nonsequitur? I asked a general question. You replied with some irrelevant nonsense.
