    Wow, I am so impressed. Try to think about what you said I replied to, You said Obama was the most corrupt president in your lifetime. For that to be true you would have to be about 5 or 6 years old. GWB was worse. I guess I need to keep it simple.

    Was GWB actual long term friends or associates with the likes of Bill Ayres, and so may others of such immoral qualities...

    Sorry my friend, you are sorely mistaken.

    Political groups masquerading as social welfare or educational groups. Often those well funded groups take in tax-free donations based of specific rules which they may or may not be following. If there was just cause to profile them, then this is legitemate. If not...well, the IRS will have a problem.

    IRS targeted groups that criticized the government, IG report says

    Looks like it went beyond just being conservative only, unless you want to count teaching people about the Constitution as being conservative.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Yes, we can't have people out there teaching people about their rights now can we?

    He was a long time associate of Ken Lay and the Enron folks. So, yes Bush did have friends with immoral qualities.

    He didn't say that. He said teaching people about the constitution isn't inherently conservative.


    Additional reporting says this seems to have happened in a couple more cities at least. Somebody is getting so fired. (and possibly arrested)

    Make up your mind. Friend or associate? You say one, then imply the other.


    Now a business associate is different. I should have specified, and I think Obomba has countless unethical friends rather than just associates.

    The personal friends Obomba had in the past should have disqualified him from any ethical person's vote in my opinion.
