    That the BOLO list targeted progressives has been established.

    Now, we're asking why it took so long to find out, and why Issa apparently covered it up, and whether he did so from the start, during his interference with the internal IRS investigation. Try to keep up. We've left your discredited rightwing memes in the dust.

    Your problem is your lack of character and principle. You're also projecting. You believe Issa is a "self serving POS" so therefore any investigation into a corrupt IRS acting like the Gestapo isn't valid. You have to attack Issa because your only concern is minimizing the credibility of this investigation. You are part of the problem. Not the solution.



    You're not even debating reality. It's already been established that this smokescreen talking point pushed by the state controlled MSM is a smokescreen. Progressive groups did not have the same level of scrutiny. Progressive groups didn't have their petitions forwarded to a separate group for special scrutiny.

    You're nothing more than a corrupt shill for a corrupt fascist administration. You want to make this about Issa to destract and try discredit the investigation. It won't work.
    Yes, yes, the talking points of two weeks ago.

    Now the facts are out: The IRS targeted progressive groups, apparently involving GOP operatives, and apparently Issa tried to cover that up and is still trying.

    It's a whole new ballgame. Reid is apparently thinking of starting an investigation of his own. Issa will figure prominently.

    In short the America people have been had by the GOP. It will be funny to see what happens when they find out for sure.

    The majority are republicans, and Issa does get to run it like a dictator

    Awwww... it looks like yet another phoney outrage and manufactured story to make the Democrats (particularly Obama) look bad, unprofessional, deceitful and evil has gone up in smoke. Will Issa eat a whole ****ing humble pie for himself, or will he still pretend (like those who suffer from tinfoilasitis), that the big bad IRS -- no matter the evidence -- IS still after the poor and victimized widdle wight wingers? So many here were duped big time and it seems to be a common occurrence in this days of misinformation. So, to those who fell hook line and sinker... how does this new information make you feel and how will you approach the next "scandal"? I am seriously curious.

    Funny thing, there are some major concrete things to be upset with the Obama Administration, including the fact that they have done pretty much nothing to change the regulations of the banking industry... an industry that almost collapsed the American economy. Amazing that it seems few are angry about this, yet get a boner with incredibly stupid stories like the IRS.

    I guess it doesn't matter to you that the IRS actually admitted to unfairly targeting conservative groups, does it?

    Facts are what matter to me. And it's a fact that progressive group were targeted, as well. This was no witch hunt and I cannot understand why many of you refuse to face reality and move on.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    The facts are out and you are either confused are purposely lying

    The IRS did not target 500 Progressive/Atheist Groups and send all their applications to a special task force that held up all their requests for months upon months until after the election. You're just bleeting the big lie and smokescreen that your puppet masters in the Obama regime and the MSM want you to believe. What's sad is that they play you like a fool for free. Other posters here that shamelessly shill and lie for Obama probably get paid to do it.

    Even if your flimsy premise is true (it isn't) how does that not make what the IRS did a "witchhunt". So because they apparently targeted everyone that makes it acceptable? WTF is wrong with you people?

    According to the House Rules, Rule X, section (j)(1):

    (j)(1) Whenever a hearing is con-
    ducted by a committee on a measure or
    matter, the minority members of the
    committee shall be entitled, upon re-
    quest to the chair by a majority of
    them before the completion of the
    hearing, to call witnesses selected by
    the minority to testify with respect to
    that measure or matter during at least
    one day of hearing thereon.
    Issa can not run the committee like a dictator. The minority on a committee can (and generally does) select, interview, and present witnesses. In this particular matter, for whatever reason, they have not. The reason they have not yet presented a witness to directly refute claims of impropriety or "targeting" is unknown but they are not prevented from doing so.

    All that says is the minority members can call their own witnesses
