    Now can you explain what the word "perhaps" in the sentence "Perhaps we should refer to exam?" means?

    So now referring someone to exam DOESN'T mean audit? Do you need some time to get your story straight? I can wait.

    I let most of this stuff just wash off my back. neither party in my opinion has any core values except getting elected, gaining power and remaining in power and if they are not in power, to get in power. If the two parties really believed in either raising the debt ceiling or not raising the debt ceiling, they would have voted the same regardless who was president. If both parties believed targeting certain groups because of their political beliefs by the IRS, both parties would be outraged and both would want to get to the bottom of this regardless of rather it was the left or the right targeted.

    Right now the Democrats are condoning the targeting of conservative groups. But back during Nixon when he attempted to use the IRS, it was the Democrats who were upset so much as this was one of the articles of impeachment. It sort of boils down to if your party is doing it, it is okay. If the other party is doing it, it is wrong.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    She didn't say who should be audited

    From the article you say you read
    It was unclear from the emails whether Lerner was suggesting that Grassley or the group be audited — or both.

    Our government won't wreck this country. It's the partisanship amongst the citizens that will.

    And the politicians are laughing themselves sick over it, and high fiving each other about it. None of this could happen if we didn't enable it as a citizenry.

    Why in the hell should I care what technology you have, its irrelevant. What's relevant is the technology they have at the IRS and all government agencies. They have BUDGETS that must be followed. Do you think I was lying about the IRS backing up their emails on tape? I think that procedure should be investigated, however I am not ready to say the crash of the computer is a coverup. If I were doing something nefarious, the very last thing I would do would be to put the evidence on email in the first place. I guess that too logical for you.

    Go on defending everything, pete. Maybe I was wrong about you. You're not really a liberal. Liberals question government, they don't bow in subservience to government. I thought you were better than that.
    Again, I could care less what you think I am.

    If you could care less, then that means you care a lot.

    No, I know pete, nothing nefarious. Not even a smidgeon of corruption. Yes, we know. Obama already said that, and I know...his words are good enough for you.

    For some reason, you don't think you're not being partisan, why is that?

    Excellent nitpicking. Kudos.
