    You’re kidding, right, Jerry? Or are you bringing this phony scandal back because (A) things are actually going rather well for the country and (B) you can’t spell Bengozzi? Bengazi? BenCasey?
    .
    Well, however the Tea Party tax cheats feel about it, I’m sure the fat cat tax cheats who fund them will pat you on the head and give you a cookie.

    Not a smidgen, but rather a boat load of it…

    The Senate has repeatedly investigated. It has gone over the accusations with a fine-tooth comb and found that Obama and the IRS are as innocent as new born babes. (Of course, the vote was on party lines, but hey, majority rules!)

    From what I understand nobody was “targeted”, but a lot of groups were scrutinized. And that’s what the IRS is supposed to do. That it were more conservative and fewer liberal groups stems from the fact that liberals don’t try to blatantly circumvent the law quite that often…

    @Michael wme

    Following your logic we can expect cases in front of a judge decided by a partisan jury based on majority. Not the U.S.A. I remember… The Senate is supposed to be wise, old men and woman that prevent the kids in the House from wrecking the country. If everything is partisan now the downfall is not far ahead…

    The newest hit list, the friends of Abe. Of course all you have to do is have Cancer and speak out against Obamacare and the IRS will come knocking on your door.
    Does not hurt to have a big political donor “investigating” wrong doing either.

    “You’re kidding, right, Jerry? Or are you bringing this phony scandal back because (A) things are actually going rather well for the country and (B) you can’t spell Bengozzi? Bengazi? BenCasey?”

    The IRS thing is not a phony scandal. (As is shown in the report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, “Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review”, dated May 14, 2013, Reference Number: 2013-10-053) This latest escapade by the IRS is not a change in the use of the IRS as a tool to gain political advantage by just this administration. Past administrations have done the same thing. Denying this as a “scandal” only perpetuates all government agencys’ belief that they can do to whomever, whatever they want without significant consequence.

    As for the Benghazi scandal, that is not so much a scandal but a scandalous demonstration of incompetence exhibited by those that administer facilities security by the State Department. (c/Senate report “REVIEW of the TERRORIST ATTACKS ON U.S. FACILITIES IN BENGHAZI, LIBYA”, SEPTEMBER 11-12,2012, dated Jan. 15, 2014 and the Pickering Report as instituted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton)

    You have to realize the tea party is entranced by the IRS and Benghazi because they have nothing else constructive to offer. They don’t want to work on jobs, immigration, education, infrastructure, tax code fix, ,,,,,,,,,

    As opposed to Democrats being entranced about the governor of New Jersey possibly being involved in creating a traffic jam…
    .
    I think there is a lot more behind the numerous scandals the Obama administration has had and the media and Justice Department have ignored and that many of those had far more serious consequences.

    Speaking of “looked for hours,” has Trump’s crack team of investigators found Obama’s “real” birth certificate yet?

    “From what I understand nobody was “targeted”, but a lot of groups were scrutinized.”

    From the title of the report by the U. S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration:

    “Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review”

    I guess you forgot how many Democrat tax cheats become potential Cabnet appointees in each dem administration.

    The questioning included requests for copies of Facebook postings, the content of prayers, political beliefs of members, résumés of board members and dealings with the media.
