    Poor dears.

    "We screwed these people over real good, and now they're mad at us. We don't understand it," isn't going to fly.

    If one of these scumbags actually becomes a victim of violence over this I promise I'll suppress my giggling long enough to condemn the act.

    But my hat is off to Reuters for taking on what can only be called Mission Impossible -- ginning up sympathy for the IRS.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings released the IRS transcripts today and there is nothing that implicates the Obama Administration.

    And if you were running things back in 1972, Richard Nixon would have been considered, to this day, as one of the most successful two term Presidents ever to serve. Fortunately, good conservatives and Republicans were prepared to open their minds and eyes and hold their party's leadership to account.

    Sorry, that meme doesn't fly. There is no Woodward & Bernstein and no deep throat.

    Not yet, and not as diligently, anyway. But keep trying to bury it and your wish may come true.

    Bury it? I'm having fun watching the right wing spin.

    How the hell would you know ?

    Your one objective here is to mitigate an activity that would have gotten ANY Republican President almost instantly kicked out of office.

    You won't even accept the full scope of the IRS targeting so OF-COURSE it's not criminal. Because you stop reading when it becomes OBVIOUS that the IRS's release of donor list for the sole purpose of targeting them politically was...against the law.
