    Of course...because then you can't make ridiculous comparisons...."We had to fill out an additional form and that's similar treatment that supporters of the NAACP in the 1950's had to deal with".

    A tempest in a tea pot! A political storm that will be gone with the wind. As have all the other bagger's pet issues being rode til they fall off the rails.

    But keep it alive by all means. The more time they spend spinning their wheels over this nonsense, the more the discredit themselves and the less time they have to form some kind of fascist united front.

    On the upside, this must be giving John McCain new hope! He knows it's either him and his ilk or the ilk of the baggers in the end!

    It's always "targeted"
    not always

    Inspector General: IRS' Ineffective Management Allowed Tea Party Targeting - HuffPo

    The much-anticipated report notes that the IRS suffered from "ineffective management" which allowed for agency officials to discriminate against Tea Party groups, often resulting in "substantial delays" in process applications and "unnecessary" information requests.
    meanwhile, 501c4 ofa, which the nyt describes as "an extension of the administration, stocked with alumni of the obama white house and campaign teams and devoted solely to the president's agenda," "whose goal is to harness its resources in support of obama's second term priorities," "not unlike the super pacs obama once deplored," and whose donors who hit the half mil threshold get that exciting invite to those action packed white house quarterly meetings, is busy

    Very true, the fact is that the IRS didn't have the personnel to scrutinize all the groups requesting non profit status, so they created list of key words to assist them.

    And it got the desired results. It zeroed in on the law breakers. And the rabid right just can't get that through their vacant skulls so they have to continue to ride on a dead horse. But not for long because it's starting to stink even too much for their noses.

    why even goebbels himself wouldn't know what he was talking about

    friday: Congressional investigators vow to expand IRS probe | The Daily Caller

    “There are real problems there,” said Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, who was also present at the event. “It’s tough to manage them all and it’s not managed well and there does need to be significant restructuring in the IRS.” Baucus’ Finance Committee is currently leading the Senate’s investigation of the IRS scandal.

    Both lawmakers vowed that their respective investigations will last for months.
    max baucus---choo choo!

    So it's okay for the administration to violate the Constitution because they knew, without any evidence whatsoever, that the political opponents of the President were violating the law. How very Orwellian.

    The IRS has openly admitted that they were involved in targeting Conservative groups for 18 months, which included the last Presidential election. It is not yet been proven, or claimed, that anyone in the Obama White House was directly involved.

    However, you should read this. Every American and every interested party should read it. It is by Pulitzer Prize winning author George Will, who is very well respected by both sides and not given to rabble-rousing.

    From your first link.

    It was dishonest and biased management which was the problem. They were quite effective.
