    Somehow or other I can't help but think that this is Bush's fault, Obama was never aware of it until today, Boehner did it too, it happened a long time ago, and it was paid for by the Koch brothers.

    Since it's already been shown that the IRS was targeting Occupy Wall Street and other progressive groups, it's it time for conservatives to give up on this failed meme.

    If anything, we now know that Bush appointees and operative engaged in targeting and filing false reports, apparently with the collusion of Issa.

    Uh oh. It's from Fox News. Has to be a lie. There's no there, there. They targeted other progressive groups too. The dog ate it. Obama didn't do nuttin. NUTTIN. He was feeding starving kids in the alley behind the IRS. Carter Hull eats babies, and I can prove it. You see his teeth? Nuff said. Do you really think Obama vetts his appointees? Let me clue you in. He doesn't. Republicans do that. This is all their fault. They set this up. With children starving all over the country, do you really think this is important? Get over it. Let's talk about the war on women, Trayvon, the recovery, Republican obstruction, the war on contraception, the hate of illegals, the living wage, the dying wage, or sumthin else. The IRS is all fixed now. It's hot outside, and somebody somewhere doesn't have air conditioning. Why do you hate that somebody somewhere?

    You're lying. Another lib defending the police state.

    There was a special technical group setup for Tea Party and Religious Groups. All of their requests went to this special technical group for scrutiny. OCW and Liberal groups did not received the same level of scrutiny. Not even close.

    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

    Which is exactly why Holder and Obama pushed so hard to get Zimmerman charged with a crime. They knew he would be found Not Guilty and only wanted to exploit the issue for political gain. The low info voters took the bait.

    Hey, Oh Partisan One, it makes no ****ing difference who is behind it . . . who started it . . . who condoned it. That's not the point. If you've ever been audited by the IRS (I seriously doubt it) or know anyone who has (I seriously doubt it), you know all about the Gestapo powers and tactics they enjoy. 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.
