    Re: IRS targeting included liberal groups

    There is a major difference between say, Emerge America, "a liberal group, that lists as its sole reason for existence as, to train, and prepare democrat women to run for political office....", And a Tea Party group that's purpose is to educate people on the constitution. Can any of you smart liberals tell me why it is that out of hundreds of groups targeted with the names, Tea Party, Constitution, Freedom, or anything else on the "BOLO" list, and y'all come up with 1 single group that was denied, (and should have been) makes it all even? Are you kidding me?

    There were at least 12 separate groups within the IRS, nationwide, targeting conservative groups....So, Cummings is a liar at best.

    The results of an IRS investigation investigating itself are to be taken with extreme skepticism.

    No, you were just given the name of the group that was actually DENIED by the IRS, which is ACTUALLY what you were asking for.








    In SIX different posts you challenge someone to name a Progressive group which was denied, and now you act aghast because no one answered a question you didn't ask. Totally shameless, even by your standards.


    I'm sorry, I have to stop here, I cannot take any more, cannot even finish reading the rest of your post. For YOU to claim another is "so ideologically blind" is just too much laughter for one night. I'm sure you feel like you made good points, but intelligent and objective people know better. And even those who are not intelligent or objective can just read above at the six different times you asked the same question before acting like you asked a different one to see just how incredibly biased you are.
    So...having to wait 2 years for someone to give you ten million dollars is worse than never getting it?

    I love Republican non-logic.


    I find it amusing you post that like you believe it actually helps your cause. The flip side of that is that applications of progressive groups could be DENIED on the spot by line agents, while those of tea-party groups could not. And, from what I've read (and you're welcome to post a source saying otherwise, I'm not 100% sure about this statement) the only group which actually WAS denied was a progressive group, is that correct?

    Again, and I've said this for weeks now, people are worried about the wrong dang thing. Instead of worrying about groups in limbo or denied, we should be worried about the groups who were passed and the fact so many of them clearly seem to be skirting our laws in order to pump more money into an already corrupted government. But no, you and your buddy Fenton there are far more interested in playing the team game, putting down the other team so your team can win.
    Your concern regarding PACs skirting tax law is a bit insincere.

    Did it take the illegal release of confidential donors list and the harassment of groups you oppose on a ideological level to peak your interest or has this always been a concern of yours ?

    Sounds like your'e just trying to defend the undefensable to me and prior to the IRS getting popped for targeting groups based on their beliefs you really could have cared less.

    Just as long as Democrats got elected.

    Well they were elected and now we're paying for it with multiple scandals and a anemic eceonomy.
    And thats after 7 trillion in new debt and 4 trillion in QE.

    Wer'e a laughing stock to the rest of the word. Defined internationally by the stupidist of our electorate. Obama is Putins bitch with J. Kerry publicly anouncing " we don't want to make Russia mad at us " .
    Govt officials taking the Fifth in front of Congress and our top law enforcment official commiting perjury. Something us little people go to jail for.

    I can't figure out what your'e so proud about.

    I have a account on HuffPo, just to harass all of the idiots and in the chat section I asked for them to name ONE Progressive group that was targeted.

    I got the same group multiple times.

    It must be in the talking points.

    It's the only damn 501c4 group to be denied. There aren't any others. I'm sure 2+2=4 would be a talking point if a republican said it was five.

    Not that any facts, reality, or critical thinking will ever permeate your bubble.

    In a 2 year time frame leading up to the 2012 election, only 4 groups inside the naming limitations were granted status. Obama may not have directed it, but he surely benefitted from it.

    Or there has been a deliberate attempt to selectively release information to give the appearance of a scandal.

    How exactly did Obama benefit?

    So you think those right wing groups would have helped with Romney's campaign?

    Thanks for admitting that the IRS was right for investigating those groups.

    By the IRS? They sabotaged themselves?
