    This is true. Neither of them really care about the truth, only who wins.

    those making this about Issa is as bad as those making this about Obama.

    This is about the IRS. how about we let the investigators investigate and stop assuming we know where it leads.

No "Progressive" groups received such scrutiny.

    When Issa runs for re-election it will be all about him. That's what he wants, he wants the attention on him. Typical Washington grandstanding. The fact that you can't see anything bad in the Republicans tells me what kind of "Libertarian" you are. Hint: "libertarian" is not just a cooler sounding word for "Republican"

    What you mean you don't want to lynch Obama before we really know what happened? You must be some kind of closet Libbo...

    As I said on a similar thread, it should be quite easy for an institution like the IRS, whose main business is the collection and evaluation of numbers, to come up with a statistical report that details the number of groups applying for such status targeted in each of the categories, the number of groups that were targeted that were approved and the time it took to approve them, the number that weren't approved, the number of groups in each category that were asked for supplemental personal and/or private information related to donors as a follow-up to their application, etc.

    Provide the information to the American people. They're smart enough to recognize if something is inherently wrong or if the practice is/was as benign as the Obama apologists would like everyone to believe.

    Based on the information provided in this OP, I could just as easily conclude that by putting progressive and/or liberal sounding groups on a BOLO list was designed to fast-track them as opposed to target them for greater scrutiny. The details would clear that up.

    I have a pretty long list of valid reasons to lynch Obama. Many of the items were the same reasons we should of lynched Bush.

I didn't see anything related to Israel directly though it can be assumed that the aforementioned "Occupied Territory Advocacy" would cover that.

    It should also be mentioned that the Tea Party reference and the Progressive reference are on completely different lists and that unlike the Progressive notation the document expressly directs Tea Party groups to be sent to a specific group while no such direction is indicated in the progressive notation.
    Well THAT was well done young man.

    Nonsense. The IRS has always used all sorts of criteria to select groups and individuals for auditing, investigating etc.

    They can't audit/investigate everyone.

    Your Left/Right paradigm nonsense does not concern me. I don't operate in that little box.

    This is not about Republicans/Democrats. Those are just labels that distract. The only thing you and your pals like PB care about is shielding the corruption emanating from the Obama Administration from any accountability. You only believe state controlled media lies. You are part of the problem. Not the solution.
