    OK, please school me on hard drive failure rates, the statistics involved in the IRS situation, and the inability to restore back files.

    Since all groups including some progressive have been targeted, there is no indication that is happening.

    Well, not to you or anyone who is frequently on the traitorous side of history.

    For people who still have honor and have paid attention (I am not claiming that you have either honor or have paid attention - or its opposite) it is one more bit of evidence that she needs to be made an example of. Try her. Convict her. And then put her in prison until she dies. Fine her to strip her of any wealth she has or will ever have. When she dies throw her out into some field and let the dogs and birds eat her.

    (it is such a good thing I have no strong opinions).

    I actually believe agood percentage of americans just cant bring themselves to believe the government of the USA would do this to its own citizens. Guess what, they have and its not just the IRS! We are not a free people any more and everyone needs to realize this. I believe the EPA just pulled the same "hard drive crashed" BS a couple weeks ago, its now the default postion.

    Hard drives fail all the time in the Whitehouse too...

    But the GOP's flying monkeys hoping to put the former IRS official at the center of a massive Obama administration plot to target right-wing "social welfare" organizations need not go back in time to 1973 to decry the lost data. After all, in 2008 current House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa explained how the Bush White House conveniently lost 22 million emails during the Plamegate investigation that led to the conviction of Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Scooter Libby.

    As you'll recall, millions of Bush White House emails conveniently went missing between 2003 and 2005, including those in the critical days during which the administration formulated its response to Ambassador Joe Wilson and his covert CIA operative wife, Valerie Plame. In July 2007, Darrell Issa accused Plame of perjury. Then, in February 2008, Issa turned IT expert and brushed off the email imbroglio as merely a software problem. As Mother Jones reported that March:

    I find it amusing that you think a jury would actually convict someone purely on some fantasy story and circumstantial evidence. You must be thinking of a Kangaroo Court. Is that what you want for America? I wouldn't be surprised.

    Apples and oranges. The backup was mislabeled, when found, not problems noted. It was a single system. not seven.

    What are the statistics of seven separate system hard drives failing in the same time period? Where are the seven backups?

    Are we talking about the same thing here? You know Lois Lerner was the one that came out and admitted wrongdoing, right? Did you miss that part? And that she clammed up and won't say where the orders came from? You have to keep up, or you'll end up looking silly.
