    Well, so much for this scandal. I'm done with it. The GOP isn't going to act on this as they should, the media will yawn. FYI Didn't the EPA make this same claim about a Landmark Legal demand... their hard drive "failed". Criminal is what it is, but until the zombies wake up from their stupid, nothing really matters.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    unless they take a que from dicknbush and pretend that information is also unavailable to them:

    Fascinating "Blame Bush" twist. LOL.

    I am suspicious of the word crash which is too often used as short hand to describe other types of issues. That being said, backup systems can and do fail all the time for any number of reasons. Personally though, I am not sure I would give the IRS the benefit of the doubt on this one until I see documentation.

    Documentation from whom? You can't trust anything the federal government says.

    The government. I will disagree that their credibility is as low as you say, but I wouldn't want to take their word for it in this case. But yes, I would like to see the incident info on this one before I would give them a pass.

    Very likely, their legal hold procedures should have prevented this at the very least, above and beyond any normal back up routines.

    A whole lot of "someones" need to go to jail.

    This is the most corrupt administration in the history of the republic. Yet another parallel to Nixon. Rosemary Woods is laughing in her grave.

    The Law Enforcement people led by Obama's conciliatory, Holder, are in lock step with the Chief Executive in breaking and ignoring the law. The Congress is pen of sleeping, drunk, lying thieves who are not in the business of upholding their oaths or asserting their Constitutional responsibilities. They should all resign or commit Hara-Kari.

    As a nation, we are well and truly screwed and are receiving the government that we have ignored into existence.

    It doesn't matter who you're voting for. In November, vote him out. It's time to clean house.

    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Tim-


    Not to be completely cynical here, but are under the misconception that the Congress is looking for justice?

    All they want is a talking point for the mid terms. Looks like they have one.

    There will be NO progress in the investigation because Holder is running it and the Congress is a herd of castrated drunks who only want to steal our money.

    I'm sure the Department of Justice will go over the hard drive and if there is anything there, they will finish the job.

    It's really too bad that the Congress is peopled by corrupt and lying thieves who admire the tactics of the White House and wish they could pull it off.

    Do you have a link to me defending corruption previously?

    Do you have a good argument, absent the bomb throwing, for defending corruption now?
