    One has to wonder at the strangeness of raising the Christie meme in a thread about the activities of the IRS, a government agency.

    Is this a suggestion that there ARE politicians involved by comparing this to SUSPICIONS about Christie?

    If so, the congressional hearings need to be expanded immediately

    The meeting was adjourned, Cummings was getting partisan, and everyone was leaving. Saying anyone stormed away is just more hyperbole.

    True but she doesn't know what they know so I'm sure immunity is based on the truth.

    The issue is NOT the question of the fallibility of man, the age old "power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely", but thank you just the same for the attempted deflection to the meme "Bush did it too."

    The question is whether the moral compass of the party allows for an open investigation, which admittedly happens rarely; one of the last times being when much of the Republican caucus voted for a congressional investigation of the Watergate break in. That level of statesmanship is not in any evidence with the Democratic party and again, my thanks for opening up the comparative historical records of the party' as it allows the rest of us to remind the world how the Democrats voted strictly along party lines when their president, Clinton, had committed the high crime of perjury in the obstruction of justice. I do not recall any instances where Republicans conspired to prevent justice where a president had been clearly guilty of a felony.

    In the argument that the Republicans are no better, you condemn your own party to mediocrity in that it then results that Obama is no different from those who came before at least, but likely worse for not learning from the mistakes of his predecessors.

    In the end, it cannot go unnoticed that not once has any Obama supporter ever admitted that he has erred on any file, including excusing his claim of learning about events on TV, so the credibility of this defense is highly challenged.

    Thank you for that post and the opportunity to respond.
    A great reminder that when Nixon did wrong the Republicans backed away from supporting him, yet Democrats did not do that with either Clinton or Obama. Party comes first.

    No, it's fact if you watched the meeting. Issa stopped proceedings before Cummings could comment, immediately after Lerner declined to talk. Issa then had Cummings mic turned off, refused to listen and went away angrily. That's just the way it happened.

    No he turned off cummings mike after it was apparent that all Cummings was going to do was fill the time with rantings and no actual questions.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    If you watched the meeting, he didn't even give Cummings a chance to say anything.

    I must disagree. Cummings insisted on being heard after the meeting was declared adjourned. The mike was turned back on. Cummings went into a rant and Issa simply got up and left.

    You realize we can see this right?

    Is there a logical reason why Lerner is showing up, then refusing to talk again? What a waste of time on everyone's part!
