    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Evidence? Nobody has even asked this question or looked into it. For all we know the GOP operative who targeted the tea party also targeted progressive groups.

    In the 27 months that the Internal Revenue Service put a hold on all Tea Party applications for non-profit status, it approved applications from similar liberal groups, a USA TODAY review of IRS data shows.

    As applications from conservative groups sat in limbo, groups with obviously liberal names were approved in as little as nine months. With names including words like "Progress" or "Progressive," these groups applied for the same tax status and were engaged in the same kinds of activities as the conservative groups.

    irs internal review---independent of tigta: "significant problems," "substantial bias"

    Internal IRS probe cited same problems with approach to conservative groups in May 2012 - The Washington Post

    that is, the irs says the irs discriminated

    why do you think doj launched its criminal investigation?

    if you're not familiar with nancy j marks, you really don't know the story

    No stats here and no comparison between applications approved and disapproved.

    Try again. This time with feeling.

    the gray lady (nyt), february:

    501c4 ofa is "an extension of the administration stocked with alumni of obama's white house and campaign teams devoted solely to the president's second term agenda," "whose goal is to harness its resources in support of obama's priorities," "not unlike the super pacs obama once deplored," whose half million dollar donors are invited to attend white house quarterly meetings

    And so how did the GOP operative fit into this? Oh, yeah, he told us under oath. He basically run the targeting program. Go figure!

    The two houses of Congress are the people's representatives. They are supposed to be accountable to the people and part of that accountability is taking reasonable actions to insure that government isn't treading too heavily on the toes of law abiding citizens. In light of the current situation I welcome these investigations. At least they're investigating something that matters instead of steroids in baseball.
    Why are you so obsessed with finding something to blame Obama on? The hackery is so obvious that you have to bring up unrelated issues in a thread about the IRS, even though it turns out it had nothing to do with Obama.

    So in spite all your blather about accountability, I'm not at all surprised that you don't want to hold Issa, and the other republicans in congress, accountable for all the lies they have told because I've known from the get-go that your blather is dishonest.

    Dude, the testimony from the self described conservative republican shows that the treatment those group received had nothing to do with their political ideology. What you claimed was a lie.
