    Do you really want the President to exert that kind of oversight on the IRS?

    No, not at all. But if he did know and allowed it, he is equally guilty because he could have stopped it when he learned of it. At that point he would merely be responsible for the misdeed of those down the chain. That would apply to any structure that one had control in.

    Absolutly. But there's no reason to suspect that he knew anything.

    I dont think so either, it would be too stupid. I really think it was a few low level dummies. But I think whoever it is should be throughly punished.

    "Speaking about the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative political groups, House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday said "clearly someone violated the law" and questioned who would be put in prison for the agency's actions. "My question isn't about who's going to resign, my question is, who is going to jail?" Boehner said at a press briefing with Republican leaders. President Barack Obama on Tuesday night said some IRS employees failed to be impartial in their work and that they must be held accountable."

    Boehner will go to jail for his complicity with the Bush's administration use of the IRS to investigate Greenpeace and the NAACP.

    Don't you find troubling how often this President and those who answer to him--example, AG Holder--somehow don't know what's going on?

    There's so damn much smoke around this administration, it's hard to see all the fires.

    Deuce, I must respectfully disagree. There IS a lot of smoke around "this administration". It does not however come from any attempt at hiding stuff by the Administration, rather it comes from the arsonists lolling about in the House of Representatives who apparently never learned how to actually start a fire when they were in the Boy Scouts. It seems to come from a lack of knowledge about the combustibility of the items they are trying to set alight. Stuff don't burn but it does give off a lot of smoke when ignition is attempted - so they start to scream about the huge fires that are starting up when really all they have is a bunch of smoke that does little more than draw attention to their foolishness.

    So, Eric Holder is out of the picture? I don't think so. He already said he has no knowledge nor participation in the phone taps. That was somebody else, and the IRS escapade is under investigation. So, in my humble opinion, the investigative powers of the Federal Government trump those of the House. The House, you see, is purely reactive. The Justice Department has the luxury of being proactive. There's a huge difference. You see that, don't you?

    I apologize for that last comment. I'm certain you do see that.
