    You and the other Obama apolgists are ones looking like a foolish sock, posting thread after thread about Issa. Get shown out for the partisan apologists you are in one thread, you just start a new one. Cummings is a confirmed Obamabot who has his knickers in a twist because Issa wouldn't let him play co-chair.

    It's not there are no defenders, there is already another very active thread on the subject.

    Re: Darrell Issa's IRS Investigation Is Falling Apart

    There is some compelling evidence to suggest that the IRS was used as a tool to curtail the political advantage awarded to Republicans as a result of the Citizens United ruling a few years ago. Anyone remember Obama's State of the Union Address in January of 2010? Here's part of it...



    In an unprecedented move, the President basically scolded the Supreme Court in front of the entire nation. He was so pissed off about that ruling that he let the court "have it" in front of a worldwide audience. This was January 2010.

    In November of that same year the Democrats suffered a rather severe beating in the mid-term elections. Did the fact that corporations were able to literally donate as much as they wanted, and "anonymously" at that, have any impact on the results? You bet.

    Fast forward to about a month ago. The IRS scandal breaks and it turns out that IRS Director Douglas Shulman's wife is an executive for and organization dedicated to "removing private money from political campaigns".

    IRS director married to leftist activist? | Opinion - Conservative

    Kind of an odd coincidence that the IRS Director's wife works for a group dedicated to eliminating exactly what the Citizens United ruling enabled, don't you think?

    While none of this is any sort of real proof it certainly does provide a little clarity as to a possible motive. That ruling by the courts had the potential to tip the balance of power. You combine that with a bunch of right leaning organizations seeking 501c4 status(meaning they can legally hide their donors) and now you've got the makings of an infrastructure that could become a political juggernaut. It sets up a HUGE advantage for Republicans. It seems plausible to me that, given the results of 2010, the Democrats had a vested interest in seeking ways to "level the playing field".

    I could be dead wrong about this but it definitely raises suspicion.

    I wasn't the one who argued that a refusal to testify was proof of guilt.

    Kind of sucks when your own argument bites you in the ass, doesn't it?
