    I'm just one, but I know the difference between being a suspect and being guilty. Obama is a suspect. He has not yet proven to be guilty.

    ok then who has made any statement that Obama is guilty? all that ive seen is people saying that it is possible that he might be involved, and Obama koolaid drunk liberals trying to make a absurd claim that Obama is no way involved and wanting to call off the investigation

    Last month’s revelation that IRS agents had singled out Tea Party groups for special scrutiny gave Darrell Issa a purpose in life. Here was an issue that seized public attention and posed a legitimate threat to Obama. Since then, nobody in Congress has pushed harder than Issa to pin the scandal on the White House. But after a burst of attention, Issa’s investigation appears to have stalled. Although he turned up embarrassing material—has any government official been humiliated quite like the IRS commissioner in the dorky video dressed up as Spock?—Issa hasn’t made the all-important connection to the White House. And he may not be able to. The news this week that he won’t release the full transcripts of his interviews with IRS officials—interviews he selectively quoted from to imply White House complicity—suggests that what they contain may in fact exonerate the administration of the very charge Issa is laboring so hard to prosecute.
    “Your push to release entire transcripts from witness interviews while the investigation remains active was reckless and threatened to undermine the integrity of the committee’s investigation,” Issa wrote in response to a letter from his Democratic counterpart, Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who himself had selectively quoted the transcripts and then called on Issa to publicize the whole thing.

    In theory, Issa could be building a case against the White House to rival Watergate that he just isn’t quite ready to unveil. But that’s highly unlikely. Cummings has seen the transcripts and wouldn’t call for their release if they contained information that would fell his party’s president. Issa’s weak-tea defense of why he won’t comply—witnesses might be demoted or fired, he says—only buttresses this suspicion. So does the effort by Issa’s colleague, Representative Dave Camp of Michigan, to broaden the investigation’s scope to include donor audits. You don’t broaden an investigation if you’ve found the smoking gun and nailed the culprit.

    Darrell Issa is an impotent as John Boehner.
    Agreed. Issa seriously misplayed his hand. He tried to win the pot holding only a pair of deuces. Pathetic.

    We are all beginning to learn what some of us knew from the get go: there is nothing to the IRS scandal, at least as far as the angle he was playing (White House orchestration of a wholesale shakedown of conservative groups).

    I always thought the Cons were very bad a government, but pretty good at politics.... Issa must be a RINO, has he very bad at politics.... (first the Fast & Furious fiasco and now the IRS issue)..... while the Cons were busy smelling blood on the IRS, they turned off the heat on Benghazi and the shakedown of journalists, not that either of those had much traction... but now they have none.

    Perhaps the Cons will think about governing, though it is a subject they know nothing about.... but maybe they can learn?

    A third House committee joined the stampede to examine the IRS on Monday, and its chairman did exactly what you would expect somebody to do before launching a fair and impartial investigation: He went on Fox News Channel and implicated the White House.

    Asked by Fox’s Bill Hemmer what he hoped to learn at Monday afternoon’s hearing, Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) offered this bit of pre-hearing analysis:

    “Of course, the enemies list out of the White House that IRS was engaged in shutting down or trying to shut down the conservative political viewpoint across the country — an enemies list that rivals that of another president some time ago.”

    fast and furious didn't fall flat it was just illegally stalled by Obama falsely using executive privilege to hide important documents that a court soon will be forcing him to release

    all the scandal investigations are still going on. they would be moving along much faster if the WH would release documents and provide witnesses that they have been requested to do. only the guilty drags their feet when asked to provide requested evidence

    just want to remind you it took over a year after the Watergate investigation started before Nixon was forced to leave office. how long has the IRS investigation been going on? what 3 weeks so go ahead burry your head back in the sand. i will let you know when Biden is the new president with a republican run senate and house

    Just to remind you none of these items are anywhere near Watergate in egregiousness or importance. Let me help you: there is nothing to see here, as much as you want to believe there is.

    You can bury your head in the sand and think that Obama is going someplace; but he is not. He won the last election convincingly and he is our elected leader... deal with it.

    When with the RepubliCons finally stop living in the past, including thinking they can unwind the last election (or reverse ObamaCare), and actually develop a real vision for American and march TOWARD it. Sell a future and stop living in the past!

    Just to point out something about the innocent until proven guilty narrative running through this thread---we already have evidence of wrongdoing. We are trying to find out who was at the top of the food chain so to speak about ordering it and supervising it.
