    You guys will bend over backwards to avoid whats right in front of you.

    You make up scandals when a Republican is in office and ignore ACTUAL corruption and scandals when your party is running things.

    You guys would be up in arms if Bush's AG lied under OATH TWICE.

    You would be wanting the entire Bush administration marched lockstep into a Federal Penn if the IRS exclusively targeted left wing political action groups .

    The only problem with that is he has integrity, which is more than I can say for your President who's been lying and trying to intimidate people since 2008.

    Hey, we just want questions answered. If your party has nothing to hide because it didn't do anything wrong, why is it stonewalling ?

    Playing stupid ?

    Fox didn't compile any list they just took the information and numbers from the Washington post analysis and created a chart. if you have a problem with the numbers then direct it at the Washington post not Fox

    "Groups with the word “progressive” in their names suffered no similar slowdown. The number of approvals for those groups increased each year, from 17 in 2009 to 30 in 2012, the data show."

    Groups that sought tax-exempt status say IRS dealings were a nightmare - Washington Post

    it is very safe to assume groups with "progressive" in thier name are liberal
    How many of those Tea Party organizations exclusively or primarily deal with "social welfare?"

    So it's the Washington Posts fault for posting data that Fox News took out of context? Lets lets not forget that you took Fox News' dishonest report and mischaracterized it even further, changing "only 3 groups with Tea Party in their names" to "only 3 conservative groups.

    But everyone else is dishonest. Everyone else has no character. Everything is someone else’s fault.

    I think it depends upon whether they are seeking a 501c3 or 501c4 nonprofit status. Here is a link from your OP article, maybe it will help:

    liberalism is a mental disorder you just proved it. I never said i had a list of 65 progressive groups
    if you want the list give Washington Post a call. they didn't give a list they just wrote in there IRS analysis that 65 progressive groups were approved
    I know you need to try to be civil on forum post but dam people like you make it impossible

    YOU can't identify the 65 firms you insist are liberal organizations
    YOU can't explain what criteria was used to label them as progressive
    yet i am the one who is the problem
    yep, clear sign: you are a republican
