    Says you.

    If it turns out that the president actually was behind the IRS scandal, then it will turn out to be an incorrect opinion.

    Are you ready to take a bet?

    Now, using some basic deductive logic, why in the world would she do that?

    Other than she has been caught in a lie under oath, or that she suspects they know a lot more, what can it be if not guilt?
    Personal guilt, as I said. Not guilt of others. That's a leap.

    Nope. Seems quite on topic. There's a lot of leaping to conclusions without any evidence. Just a blind willingness to believe.

    If Lois lerner testifies that Obama was behind the IRS scandal, then I'll spend a week with a sig line of your choosing.

    If it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that someone else was behind it, then you post a week with a sig line of my choosing.

    So, we're not likely to hear a sudden and unexpected confession in open court?

    I think, if given immunity, she will put all the blame on herself and not implicate anyone else.
    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.

    that is a possibility. If she has immunity, why not just fall on the sword? It's a rubber sword anyway.

    It's a pretty good world.. Evidence based. Not prone to exaggerations and nonsense. I welcome you to join it.
