    No, they won't learn because politics is skin deep and their racist hate goes clean to the bone!

    Would that include Darrel Issa as well?

    I agree. I just think Republicans are attempting to link this to Obama, when they could be going after Obama for many things, such as killing American citizens with drones, without due process, spying on Americans, breaking many promises he made when he ran for office, etc. etc.

    If Republicans want to impeach Obama for the things he is REALLY doing, then I will join them. However, I won't be a hack for either side. And, as it turns out, this IRS michigas is just more political hackery, especially when they won't go after Obama's real crimes, which is right in front of their faces.

    I mean, the Tea Party is so, well, you know. They only help to assure democrat victories. The TP'ers hurt the GOP more than than anyone. It makes sense that a Republican would go after them.

    It should be interesting to see how this plays out.
    How is the Tea Party hurting the GOP?

Many Tea Party groups had applied, which appeared to be more political than providing social programs, may have had an impact on how the IRS investigated, but the IRS ended up going overboard. This seems more like incompetence than political motivation, but whatever the reason, the IRS does owe apologies to the Tea Party groups they overscrutinized.

    However, take this story with a grain of salt. The story is laid out by a Democrat. What actually occurred could be different. Let's wait and see how quickly this can be verified, one way or the other.

    Article is here
    .

    Edit: The actual transcripts of the committee hearings (Part 1 and Part 2) seem to back this up. No wonder Daryl Issa did not want the transcripts released.
    Predictable. It was a GOP operative all along. Either he was trying to create a fake scandal that he knew Issa would pick up (perhaps working with him -- that should be investigated) or he was trying to harm the tea party because it deflated GOP electoral prospects (again perhaps while working with the GOP leadership).

    We need to investigate the GOP connection with this, starting with Issa.

    The fact that there is still a democratic majority in the senate.

    Ted Adkins and other stupid candidates saying stupid things that resulted in electoral losses. Most rationale GOP operatives realize the tea party is killing the GOP. Even Rove realizes that and he created the tea party.

    Issa needs to be investigated. He should be deposed by AG Holder. That would be soooo sweet.

    That's not what I meant. Why do you blame the Democratic majority on the Tea Party?
