    I'm losing count of how many wings/factions there are of the GOP in Congress, along with the advent of regionalized pockets of resistance on both sides. This alone IMO guarantees continual government breakdowns like the credit down grade. BTW, the NCAA's credit rating was downgraded to negative by Moody's today (AP).

    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.
    How am I trying to shield him? By saying we should get the evidence first? The nerve! Obviously we should impeach now before we have a clear picture of his involvement. Yeah, because who cares what actually happened....not you that's clear.

    No they're not. They only care about "I like Obama" or "I hate Obama." No matter what, that's what will matter.

    That is an apples to cinderblocks comparison. We are not talking about taking any "extra" action (auditing AFTER normal processing of the retunn), i.e. granting the requested tax status, and then later auditing some of them. What was being done is that some "good" named applicants got virtually instant approval while "bad" named applicants got the run around for up to two years. What if auditing was done based on only auditing "foreign" sounding names or only auditing those in "suspect" zip codes. As long as the criteria are "arbitrary", like check every tenth return or check every return that has above x% of deductions to gross income then that is acceptable "extra" checking.

    Will you stop with the strawmen and hyperbole? It's embarrassing

    You're also twisting yourself in knots with all your contradictions. You can't claim you want evidence and an investigation and then at the same time attack, label and polarize the person who is running the investigation. We know your track record here as an Obama sycophant. You are fooling nobody and trying to run smokescreens for Fascism.

    Thanks.

    This stuff isn't really that complicated when your goal is to seek facts rather than to seek confirmation for ones opinions.

    Are you kidding me right now? So you linked an article that broke the story. Big woop. How does that excuse your blatant defense of Fascism in this thread? Oh that's right. it doesn't.

    Doesn't mean you're not trying to desperately toss up smoke screens and attack the investigator now because that's exactly what you are doing. You are part of the problem. Not the solution. If anything it only puts a spotlight on how you lack character and integrity. This issue is not about parties and labels.

    Psssst: Issa and his witchhunters have lost. Deal with it. It looks like the IRS was infiltrated with conservative republicans who targeted progressive organizations (just like Bush did). I think we need to start investigating how high this went up in the GOP.

    That is not true. As the OP shows, even progressive groups were targeted.

    And while the criteria they used is considered "inappropriate", the evidence indicates that the only reason why the IRS used those criteria was to find groups which were probably ineligible for the tax exempt status they were applying for. There is nothing wrong with the IRS using "non-random" methods (such as check every tenth application) to decide which applications to investigate.
