    Yes, me too. BUT. . . . it IS pertinent if they are going to revert to the 'blame Bush' deflection to get the focus off of 'the messiah', pointing out the differences of how scandals were handled in each administration is legitimate. Scandals WERE addressed to their conclusion in the Bush administration. We haven't seen any evidence of that in the Obama administration have we.

    It just means they ran out of valid arguments.

    I'm under the impression by law that a hard copy of all emails has to be printed. The name of the E-mail storage firm the IRS used until breaking their contract with them shortly after Congress began asking questions of wrong doing is Sonasoft. Here's one of their commercials that claims no computer crash is too much for them to handle. As of a couple days ago they still had the IRS listed as a client.

    Don't worry, if a republican wins the Whitehouse next time, there will be no end to the blaming of Obama for his/her failures, too! It's the partisan way.

    1. In December 2009, it was announced that the e-mails were found.
    2. They were actually recovered while Bush was still in office, but nobody ran the story.
    3. Their loss stemmed from a failure to install a properly working electronic record keeping system.
    4. That system apparently mislabeled the emails, which is why they were "lost".
    5. The Administration was aware of the problem in 2003, before they were ever requested by anyone and more than 2 years before it was made public.
    6. In October 2003, the Administration called technicians from Microsoft to help them find the electronic messages.

    It's hilarious you guys still think I'm a lefty, critical of the Obama presidency as I am. The whole point of that story is hypocrisy, something we see as just a matter of business on both sides. Issa blamed IBM, not Bush!!

    Maybe because that was appropriate since Bush's enemies were gung ho to hang him and couldn't find a shred of evidence that he had anything to do with the misplaced e-mails, and he did absolutely nothing to prevent the correction of that misplacement, and there was nothing to point to him or his office as the problem, and nobody took the Fifth when the questions were asked. Nor did he do anything to prevent the Justice Department from conducting a full investigation and coming up with answers that could not be questioned.

    Where is there any evidence that the Justice Dept. is investigating ANYTHING scandalous in the Obama Administration? Where are the special prosecutors? How do we reconcile a clueless President Obama who knew nothing about it until he read it in the papers to an 'outraged' President Obama pledging to get to the bottom of it to a President Obama saying we can't come to any conclusions until the investigation is completed to a President Obama indignantly claiming that there is not one shred of evidence to support the phony scandals even as new scandals pile in on top of the old ones?
