    I've seen evidence to indicate that the groups on the right were targeted, their applications pulled and scrutinized, their applications held while further more intrusive and personal information and large volumes of detail was required, and evidence that some people who fronted the applications actually had their business and/or personal tax files audited. I've seen no evidence to indicate that any of the groups supposedly on the left received the same or similar treatment. If those on the left carrying Obama's water have such evidence, why don't you present it?
    Bingo. Exactly the right observations and question.

    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.

    And the whitewash begins. BHO's appointee declares that BHO did nothing wrong. We'll keep that in mind while we await real evidence.

    Canadians always pine for snow. We Virginians have a different view.

    Good afternoon, CJ.

    It was 94 degrees here today, and expected to get to 96 tomorrow, with high humidity. Then July comes along next, and I have been assured it will start to get hot then....: I almost pine for snow, too....

    Great. Then why aren't there any calls for a special prosecutor?

    How many groups out of all those that applied?
