    The GOP used to be about politics of the right until it was split down the middle by the racist filth of the bagger partiers. That is their whole mission in life and everything else is secondary to them. And it's abut damn time Americans started to see that and call it for what it is.

    They can't have it both ways. They're either going to have to turf the racist slime of the baggers and the comelately libertarians or they are going to have to reform as a real political party of the right. There is only one recipe for success.

    Unfortunately, the rabid extreme right baggers have the moderate right running scared right now. That needs to change before the people get a say again.
    Do you really believe that vehemently denigrating (using similarly abhorrent avowals which you protest) those whose opinions differ from yours will motivate them to see things your way? Further do you feel your posts exhibit the tolerance that those of you ilk commonly profess?

    Like, tell me how many votes you think were stopped because some of the far-right political groups had to pay taxes that year, and in which states.

    Then tell me how many electoral votes would change hands.
    None...none...

    And then there's this:

    “This was targeting of the president’s political enemies, effectively, and lies about it during the election year so that it wasn’t discovered until afterwards. … This process was deliberate, and it was repeated.”

    so much for there being no preconceived notions

    I can find many other sources but suffice to say the president generally gets the blame for any 'scandal' that occurs during his administration...rightly or wrongly.
    Gotcha.

    Here is a link that debunks this meme of yours:

    As I said, it's way more extensive and involves much more of the IRS than is explained by this so called Republican employee.

    It's a fact that the IRS targetted Conservative groups for political reasons. This isn't a coincidence.

    Obama isn't defending the IRS. The IRS isn't even defending the IRS, yet people on this website are.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
