    Unless they have hard evidence of a crime here, that Lerner is guilty, they need to give her immunity. If nothing else her testimony while immune can be used against the Democrats in the next election.
    Are you genuinely interested in getting to the bottom of this very important issue or are you more concerned that the reputation of some Democrats might be damaged?

    The truth at any cost.
    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.

    Not really likely, but you prove his point. You are easily convinced, . . . Too easily.

    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.

    Is he Naive ?

    He's a liberal. What better definition is there ?

    And yes, I believe he would use the IRS to target innocent Americans for their beliefs.

    Primarily because it wasn't JUST the IRS tha t targeted these groups.

    It was OSHA, and a handful of other Federal agencies thaf descended down on these people.

    This post is irrelevant to the topic.

    Inept, maybe. Inexperienced, yes. Naive? Not so much. No, Obama is a politician, and he knows what is likely to happen should he use the IRS to target the opposition.
    You don't have to agree with me. You have every right to be wrong if you want.

    He also may think he can be insulated from the fall out of that, which I would place in the naive category.

    If he believes that he is another teflon president, then that would be naive.

    But, I don't think he got where he is by being naive.
