    Issa on the IRS: almost as stunningly important as Issa on Benghazi. Or any other Murdoch Fox Noise. When people in San Diego come in out of the sun, it’s sure weird who they vote for.

    “I believe we can and do know when she met with Obama!”

    Ok, I’ll bite. When did she meet with Obama when he told her to use the IRS to investigate vaguely political sounding organizations applying for tax exempt status?

    “…go after the one she got her orders from…”

    So far, I have seen no evidence that anyone higher than Lerner is involved in the IRS wrongdoing.

    It is common practice on the Left when caught doing something naughty to throw a tantrum and bang your shoe on the table while yelling various ad hominems and obscenities about how “unfair” the process / proceeding is.

    “…vaguely political sounding organizations…”

    There is nothing “vague” about the following from the IRS Inspector General’s report. From that report’s highlights page: “The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations…”

    Facts are stupid things, but by ignoring just the right ones, you can make a cool scandal out of people doing their job!

    Lester’s is the best cartoon on this subject I have seen.
    Nailed the Cummings-Anti-Issa issue altogether!
    The mystery is how the Democrats are so blind to the Obvious! Next poser is why has the FBI refused to question any target of the IRS discrimination? No conservative that suffered the abuse of power and failed to get the non-profit status as quickly as IRS gave it to all the liberal organizations ….none ever heard from any member of the FBI to get the complaints first-hand!

    “J. Russell George, the IRS inspector general, told the House Oversight Committee that only in the past few weeks has he become aware of documents showing that the IRS screened progressive groups in addition to conservative ones.”

    It must be noted that this hearing occurred in July of 2013. Since that time, there has been no new audit or revision of the original audit.

    “… is just the IRS doing its job monitoring those who scam the Tax system.”

    It is the IRS’s job to expedite applications, not delay them for political purposes.

    I’m from Georgia and pretty sure you’re thinking of John Lewis. I could be wrong -but regardless, a man’s history does not insulate him from criticism.

    How refreshing! If a regular guy like me can master the art of making the racecard backfire on any idiot that tosses it at me, why can’t those chosen to lead us? Issa should have never apologized. Cummings was being a brat, and he should have said as much.

    I thought bipartisan committees were to discuss the issues – both sides, not just the chairman’s, who has amply proven just how outrageously political he is.
