    It's coming out. Issa is in trouble and George may wind up with contempt of Congress charges, if not obstruction of justice.

    But it's a blast to watch you guys spin.
    It's comical reading your posts.

    You cannot refute the points I made, so you go into these laughable histrionics ignoring reality

    You've already lost the argument, unless your new bizarre rightwing meme is that Obama directed the IRS to target progressive groups in order to help his political fortune. Something freakishly Beckian like that. Is that your new obtuse talking point?

    Laughable

    The IRS specifically targeted Americans because of their political beliefs. This is beyond refute. They even apologized for doing it, yet here you are like a puppet, chirping your laughable talking points

    How embarrassing

    You can deny reality all you want. Doesn't matter to me one way or the other. If you want to defend those type of gestapo police state tactics than that's on you.

    They admitted to targeting "tea party" which is conservative, but it didn't target all conservatives. Besides they also targeted "progressive"

    You just admitted you and HOJ lied. Nice job.

    They purposely targeted almost as many as Tea Party/Religious Groups 250 groups, if not more. Words used to flag these groups for scrutiny were "Constitution", "Bill of Rights", ect. They specifically went after groups that were critical of Obama.

    Stop trying to lie, spin and defend what the IRS did. You're siding with gestapo/police state tactics that have no place in this country. This is not about political parties. It's about what's right and what standards we as a people are willing to accept. I don't give a crap how much you and HOJ are in love with Obama. I'll never accept this type of behavior from my Government. If they were targeting liberal groups with the same level of scrutiny (and they weren't) it would still be unacceptable.

    What part of that do you not understand?

    They have no understanding of your placement of country above party and partisan political concerns. The values encompassed by your view are only acceptable to them if they can realize a political advantage from them.
