    To believe Obama didn't have a significant hand in this is naive to the point of embarassment.

Any official using (or condoning the use of) IRS targeting of individuals or groups should be drawn and quartered.

    If you want to start with Bush? Start with Bush if it can be proven. But don't tit-for-tat the problem. It's serious. It needs to be stopped dead. If Obama appointees are involved? The buck stops at his desk. Period.

    There was at least 250 Tea Party/Religious Groups targeted. All received special scrutiny. There were possibly 6 OCW groups looked at which did not receive special scrutiny.

    Stop lying
    BWHHAHAAHH! I love how conservatives are reduced to spin and counterfactuality -- and then call people who point it out liars!

    It's such teabaggery.

    Meanwhile, this meme is dead. Another Issa failure. So stick with it. It just emphasizes how out of touch the GOP has become.

    Shame! The OP used the banned word "targeted". That word is no longer allowed in the context of this manufactured outrage. The proper term "made them fill out paperwork" must be used instead.

    "...Hull had earlier come under scrutiny after an employee in the Cincinnati IRS office told congressional investigators that he had been micro-managing her review of Tea Party groups' applications for tax-exempt status..."

    Hull seems to have bitter employee syndrome. Meanwhile, still waiting for the difintive proof that the White House had anything to do with holding up tea party applications. tick tock


    The fact that were more tea party 501c applicants than other 501c applicants highly suggests thats why there were more of their applications getting held up. Thats just simple math....which IS something the IRS seems to have a problem with. lol

    There's still no evidence of that. Let's wait for evidence before pointing fingers.

    This testimony is interesting. The plot thickens.

    No Head, it all started with Adam. He got the ball rolling and committed a crime right off the bat. Your accusations are behind the finding of fact which the IRS already admitted. We're slowing going back to the origin, and it isn't George. This is going to be peeled like an onion.
