    It would be the end of days, but since its a democrat-they have the balls to defend it.
    Bush DID use the IRS against political opponents

    Bush did 'let' 3000 be killed on 9/11 by ignoring warnings while he was on vacation

    The spying on Americans did take place while Bush was in the White House

    Bush people did out an undercover CIA agent

    So what you are admitting here is Obama is worse than Bush. Agreed.

    Which is meaningless. Evidence should still be the criteria and not anyone's belief. Without conclusive evidence, only a fool has no room for doubt.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    WOW!!

    That is some response there... I honestly do not comprehend how you made that assumption. That is some strange 'thinking'

    IMO, there are actions Obama has undertaken that I see as no better than those of past Presidents. I do not however see him as being worse than any past President - obviously opinions vary but your response to my post requires some rather convoluted definitions of several words, definitions not found to be of common usage.

    Or an attempt to deal with abuse of 501(c)(4) status.

    It would look the same to you.

Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Monday. “I found only one Republican, [North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones], that would join me in calling for an investigation during the Bush administration. I’m glad now that the GOP has found interest in this issue and it ought to be a bipartisan concern.”

    The well-known church, All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, became a bit of a cause célèbre on the left after the IRS threatened to revoke the church’s tax-exempt status over an anti-Iraq War sermon the Sunday before the 2004 election. “Jesus [would say], ‘Mr. President, your doctrine of preemptive war is a failed doctrine,’” rector George Regas said from the dais.

    There is no proof. Another leftist will pick up what's been said as being the truth, repeat it, and so it spreads among the Leftist community, like Herpes.

    Proof was posted in this very thread. You don't know what you're talking about.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
