    Re: Lois Lerner does about-face, will give Hill testimony on IRS scandal

    I really haven't paid much attention to the IRS, preferring to sit back, watch and listen. I remember Learner's first testimony and her taking the fifth and thinking something must be there. But the IRS wasn't high on my watch list of political activities or issues. It took a back seat remaining in the subconscious of my mind.

    After her testimony or absents of testimony yesterday, that feeling of that something must be there was reinforced. The IRS still isn't one of my top five issues, probably not even top ten as I have know presidents before to either use the IRS or attempt to in order to get back at some political enemy. But I think sooner or later whatever Learner is hiding will come out. It may be after the president is gone from office or not. Who knows, but after yesterday I am pretty sure in my mind that their is something being hide. What or how damaging, who knows? But something is there.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That was last year and then last month, more 'interesting' news came out
    The IRS Inspector General, J. Russell George, is a hold-over from the previous Administration; he was not appointed by Obama.
    Thats great for your average low information Liberal, who doesn't have the guts or the integrity to admit Conservatives SHOULD be targeted.

    But it doesn't address the issue of Lermers Lies about the rogue employees or why she's plead the 5 th 24 Consecutive times.

    If there is nothing to this, why wont she just answer the questions ?

    She could make Issa and every Conservative out there look pretty bad in the process.

    It makes no sense that she would pass that oppurtunity up.

    They wanted anonymity for donors.

    And if the groups were on the up and up they were free to operate as 501(c)(4)s without IRS approval.

    So i don't see any "intimidation".

    Who says that Issa's not offered it yet? Who says that the Democrats aren't blocking Issa from making the offer? If he's clear to do so, he may yet.

    Frankly, isn't a special prosecutor needed to investigate this further? I mean the congressional oversight committee appears to have hit a brick wall with Lerner. I don't see keeping answers from a congressional oversight committee the final disposition of this.

    The libs say there is nothing to this.

    So according to them, Lerner is passing up a great oppurtunity to make Issa look like a fool and instead she's chosen to add more steam to the accusations that she did something highly illegal.

    The Reps rely on cognitive linguistics and "framing" to further their agendas.

    Alinsky is passe.

    Donors names WERE illegally released by the IRS to Liberal action groups.

    Which, if I recall, is an illegal action taken by the IRS. Who's held accountable for this? Typical of this administration, 'We'll investigate' and then nothing is ever heard again. My interpretation is tacit approval by the administration. And this list of alleged administration 'investigations' is a long one on a great many issues, all silently swept under the rug.
