    Oh FFS....

    Without regard to who started the targeting or why we have seen and heard several top level officials who acknowledged that they were aware that the targeting was going on and did nothing about it. That's unacceptable under any circumstances. If nobody informed the White House that doesn't mean that the White House is guiltless in this. Oversight starts at the top and if the top has opted to insulate itself rather than lead then it becomes nothing more than a pawn of the infrastructure beneath it.

    This case is an elephant and this transcript is nothing more than an in depth look at the elephant's toe.
    I think it's an elephant because a Republican (Elephant), who headed the IRS in Cincinnati, told the truth.

    Darrell Issa is really pissed that the testimony from the Congressional hearings was made public. That's the last thing he wanted, because it shows that he lied about what really happened.

    Once again he tries to nail Obama. The Republicans need to put someone honest in that spot.

    Can you specifically support:

    1. Darrell Issa is really pissed...
    2. 'he lied about what really happened'...
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

The liberal WAPO reported this so it MUST BE TRUE!

    Why are you defending and excusing fascism with this nonsensical thread? Just curious

    You been living in a cave? Issa was attempting build a Watergate-like case, and it was full of nothing but conspiracy nuttiness. Here's a good link. You can also look at the transcripts of the hearings themselves, which I included in the OP.

    did you read the transcripts? I did. The fact that he is a Republican is supported by his own testimony, under oath. As for the rest of what you posted, that was good enough to put you on my ignore list for trolling. Buh bye.

    Chalk this up to incompetence, not politics.
    Is the motive really that important? Anyone who knew about it and allowed it to continue, should be sacked.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
