    Good afternoon Lady P - I'm surprised - you're living the life of leisure in Texas, your daughter seeing to your every need and desire, and you're not happy??

    So far, there hasn't been any evidence.

    "Be On the Look Out" does not necessarily imply that such groups were then given a hard time in their application process - it could, just as logically, mean that they were flagged so that higher-ups could smooth the way for a faster approval process - to green-light the application without delay.

    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?
    Well, I'm not surprised to learn that since a new IRS Chief has been appointed, we can now forget about the long-term targeting of conservatives that has taken place. The IRS did admit wrongdoing, but no one to my knowledge has lost their job, so it's apparently not considered a big deal by this administration! Disgusting display of party over country!

    Other than the IRS admission of guilt?

    Why do you think they admitted they did it if they didn't do it?

    Edit: would this be more evidence?

    Report finds IRS targeted conservative groups, delayed applications - CNN.com
    I didn't say they didn't.
