    Yeah, that's what the 5th Amendment means. Exactly.

    God, it's hilarious to watch the tea partiers expose their hatred of our system.

    It is her right to take the 5th.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    BWHAHHAHHAAHAH!

    This is why conservatism is going extinct faster than anyone could hope.
    It definitely doesn't "impute" innocence HOJ.

    And if poor Lois was just apologizing for a few " front line " employees who were just trying to make the IRS the pinnacle of efficency, then why would she need to plead the fifth ?

    Conservativism is going NO WHERE thanks to you guys electing Jon Gotti Jr and his band of Chicago thugs.

    By recusing himself Holder may as well have taken the fifth. Now he can say he can't comment because it is all under investigation. He made a smart political move there.

    Lol !!!

    I know "how it works". Lois Lerner will use her Constitutional right "NOT TO INCRIMINATE HERSELF ".

    Incriminate from what ? I mean in reference to a question about the IRS selectively targeting Conservative groups she will elect NOT TO INCRIMINATE HERSELF.

    LOL !! What am I missing ??

    I don't think he made a smart political decision at all. I don't know of anyone who thinks that guy has a ounce of credibillity.

    Re: IRS official Lois Lerner to take the Fifth

    ron fournier's elite natl journal, yesterday:

    What did the president know and when did he know it?

    At last Thursday's press conference, Obama chose his words about the IRS scandal very carefully. "I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press." Even though he was asked about the overall malfeasance, he specifically said he didn't know about the report. That parsing alone raises questions about the level of candor coming from the White House.
    Is The White House Obscuring the Truth? - NationalJournal.com

    why can't he say?

    free thinking americans won't stop asking until he does...

    and you just hate that, hate them, don't you?

    show us your hate, homeys

    party on, progressively
