I hope no one I know ever becomes a blind cheerleader like the poster above me.
As for Nixon, there were plenty of Watergate hearings culminating in the Judicial Committee passing the Articles of Impeachment: Watergate Articles Of Impeachment
This is why Nixon resigned--because it was inevitable.
Sounds like you have never had any experience dealing with the IRS. And I seriously doubt with an IRS Agent. Those IRS Agents being the gestapo type law enforcement agents who pack a pistol and who think Miranda is a Mexican salsa.
There's more than a few good stories out there dealing with IRS Agents.
The one I like is the restaurant owner who was behind in is taxes. The IRS agents storm in the restaurant, guns drawn and ordered all of the customers to stop eating their breakfast, that those scrambled eggs they are eating now belong to the U.S. Government and to exit the building. The poor waitress watching all of this picks up a donut and takes a bite out of the donut. One of the IRS Agents confronts the waitress and threatens her with arrest because she's eating government property.
I wonder what a family of four who don't want to sign up for Obama Care because at $20,000 per year it would mean that little Mary Ann can no longer attend ballet dance school, little Billy can't participate in Pop Warner football and dad has to give up going out on the sport fishing party boats on Saturdays.
I guess if mom and dad are Democrats, the IRS will just garnish their wages. If they are Republicans IRS Agents will kick in their front door at 5:00 A.M. in the morning and confiscate the HD flat screen TV, the family's car, dads fishing rods and the coffee pot.
Does anyone know if you refuse to sign up for Obama Care, are you a felon ? If you get convicted of tax invasion your a felon and you can't exercise your Second Amendment Rights and possess any guns.
Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful

Obama's legacy - National Debt / Credit Downgrade / Obamacare Failure / Economic Failure / Foreign Policy Failure / Liar of the Year Award / The Rise of ISIS
We KNOW Max Baucus asked the head of the IRS to investigate Conservative non-profits in 2010.
We know Chuck Schumer wrote a letter to the head of the IRS in 2012 with 6 Democrat signatures asking for investigations into the Conservative non -profits
We also KNOW Obama is a liar.
The IRSs specific investigations based on political ideology are not isolated down to a couple of office workers who were trying to speed up the process, they are a matter of IRS policy.
Who has that kind of power to change their policy ?
There's a reason why "choose your battles wisely" is wisdom.
By the way, I believe the AP scandal is a legitimate scandal. But you guys have been going on for so long now that it's hard for me not to roll my eyes and I believe it's a legitimate scandal!
Saying that these groups are not political is like saying that the DNC and RNC are just Social Welfare organizations with missions to educate voters about the evils of the other side. They're political organizations. I mean, if you use Tea Party in your name... kind of by definition you're a political organization.
The problem isn't that these groups were targeted, the problem is that the criteria used select them was politically biased. It's not that they were unfairly targeted, its' that other liberal groups may have been unfairly NOT targeted.
Also, this was all overseen by a Republican nominated by Bush.
