    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.

    “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”

    mikefive is one of the few credible “conservative” contributers on this site. But you would not know anything about that.

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

    Potential? Aren’t you forgetting Obama’s first Sec Treas Tim Geithner?
