    Is this the guy Cummings points to as the proof needed to end the investigation ?

    LOL !! Yea you wish. I mean how fuc**** stupid do the Democrats think we are ? They forget, we're not Obama supporters. But how Convienent, a " Conservative Republican" who semt back ONE case to Washington.

    There are signed letters by Lois Lerner that shows this targeting was Mico-Managed by Washington. Jay Sekulow is representing over 60 groups and has access to signed documents.

    You people. This aint over, and until you can provide evidence of this middle managers political lean its juat more lies from Democrats and nothing else.

    In 2010 the GOP lost 3 easily winnable senate seats, Sharon Angle in Nevada, Ken Buck in Colorado, and Christine O'Donell in Delaware. In 2012 the Tea Party primaried Dick Lugar with Richard Mordock who was crushed. Missouri should have gone red, but Todd Akin couldn't keep his mouth shut. That's at least 5 senate seats off the top of my head. Tea party candidates routinely under perform GOP baselines by 6-10 points in state-wide races.

    Without the tea party, the Senate would have been either GOP or 50/50. Their complete compromise-a-phobia has also prevented the GOP from adapting to compensate for changing demographics.

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.
    Jeepers, these groups were not targetted. Why do you think there was something sinister behind this? They just wanted to use the same rules/protocol on all like-minded groups. Why is that so freakin hard to accept?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You may have a point there. The Democrats court social conservatives and the Republicans court fiscal liberals. Those seem to be the swing voters but fiscal conservatives account for a huge portion of voters and we're fed up with both parties being against us.

    A handful of Tea Partiers are harming the Tea Party movement and the GOP, but that isn't the same as the movement (as a whole) hurting the GOP. There are plenty of examples of Democrats hurting their own party.

    Obama disagrees with you, even though his own administration is at fault.
