    I'm not justifying anything. I'm asking for proof. Somehow higher ups in the administration ordered career bureaucrats (including and IRS commissioner that was appointed by Bush) and they did it...of course without any sort of email chain or trail or evidence. Yeah...ok...maybe in a make believe world where Democratic Presidents are ominous boogeymen but in the real world that's not a credible story.
    Well, isn't that convenient....You're asking for proof that the IRS refuses to give even the oversight committee investigating it....Wow....So I guess in your world all one has to do is refuse to give evidence, then you can say show me what you got, and dismiss it all because you refuse to cooperate in the first place....

    I do not know what really happened with the IRS, but I am pretty sure we will never know how innocent or guilty anyone was with the girl the administration appointed to do the investigation. Appointing an avid Obama supporter/donor to investigate certainly smells. That appointment has caused my trust level in this administration to drop considerably.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Bullies calling bullies bullies.
    Another fair and balanced House "monkey court" hearing.
    No solution is desired by GOP/FOX, as they want to run this up Obama's ass until he's gone .

    He probably would have won if it weren't for progressive malfeasance like sicking the IRS on opponents during an election cycle.

    For Mitt Romney, the 2012 election was held about a year too early.
    Romney would hold a slight lead on President Obama if the 2012 election were replayed today, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
    The poll of registered voters shows Romney at 49 percent and Obama at 45 percent in the rematch, a mirror image of Romney's four-point (51-47) popular-vote loss in 2012.

    President Romney? Yes, if the election were held today

    Damned right, and we wouldn't have it if he weren't such a corrupt liar now would we....

    And the Obama administration will continue to ignore the House comittees request for pertinant documents.

    When did reasonable intelligent people start equating innocence to someone first apologizing for the IRSs actions and then taking the fifth whrn asked about it under oath ?
