    Your blind partisanship is so deep that you don't find this to be worthy of answers. You know where this originated in your gut, and you're with Lerner, willing to do anything to protect your chosen one.

    I would hang a conservative out to dry in a second if they did something like this. Our Constitution was written precisely to prevent government from being used like this.

    And the evidence isn't weak. That's just wishful thinking on your part, and if it was, Lerner and her ilk wouldn't be running from it. Same goes for Holder and the DoJ, the NSA, Benghazi, and the other umpteen scandals that have rocked these past six years. It makes Nixon look like he forgot to tie his shoes.
    Well, anyine could lie. But I'm not the one making unsupported claims. Think about how much of a partisan it takes to think unsupported claims are the gospel, and the person saying lets see the evidence is a partisan hack. If you can't see the problem with that, you're more far gone than even I think.

    That's called institutional authoritarianism.
    This is what the left is all about, they are pocket statists. Ideas so good they need to force everyone to do it.

    I got a real problem with that sort of thing. Freedom is Freedom FROM government, as least as much as possible / practical.

    No surprise that I'm no fan of this administration's, nor the majority of congressional members', positions and policies. Seems that most are this type of 'pocket statists'.

    Let the people believe they are in charge and they'll be easier to govern.

    Isn't what they say about an educated populace that they are easy to govern but impossible to rule?

    I can't see an educated populace voting for Barrack Obama a second time.

    There is no real conclusion from that, but things but out in a partisan way. it will impress one set of partisans and not another. Too often this is how we do pretend discourse today. Any thing like the NRO or The Nation or Fox or MSNBC or any of these partisan nonsense things should ever really be used. They're just singing spin to the choir. The trouble for the a partisan is that they see anything not singing to the choir as biased. The partisan pretends there is nothing possible but the rancor they feed themselves. And are blind to any other possibility.

    I know it's just terrible that anyone would see this as a problem. The Bastard. But, I do. Sorry.
    Ok Joe, Lord knows I have dismissed articles from you in the past with partisan leanings, but what specifically in those bullet points from NRO is "wrong", or "embellished"? I'd like you here to go point, by point in what I laid out from NRO, and show me proof where they are fabricating things.

    That's because your partisanship blinds. Romney was a poor candidate. Your pool was weak. No educated candidate would have voted for anyone other than Romney, and he was weak.

    To be accurate, you have complained that mainstream accurate stories are biased. This is humorous for me when I read it.

    But to NRO, I've shown their inaccuracies to you many times before. Bias is a given. But when an article uses this type of language: liberal progressives have closed ranks, and feckless republican leadership doesn't have the fortitude to institute a joint select committee. Well, that's a clue it can't be trusted. This is argument studies 101.
