Wow. First ABC reports on the twelve phases of Bengazi excuses and now this. What’s going on here?

"I get that warm fuzzy feeling about the new 16,000 IRS agents hired to enforce ObamaCare and Conservatives."

My first thought (but, it's probably closer to 17,000).

The IRS is not politicized in attacking conservatives before the mid-term election.

On the other hand, Benghazi was politicized by Republicans, not the WH in totally changing talking points before the mid-term election.

Tea Partys are local organizations meant to deal with local politics.

Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots...
Tea Party Express founder Sal Russo

These are national organizations and, AFAIC, can go jump in the lake. They ruin the reason "Tea Party candidates" were so successful in 2010 and hopefully will be in 2014.

I get 3-4 email from Ms. Martin each week. They all share in common: A desperate plea for my dollars and info on the latest scheme against nobama. That's not what Tea Partys are for.

Tea Partys should stick to local issues. That's what we do best.

Maybe I’m just waking up, but, as an American, this is more than just embarrassing.

Put your shoulder to the wheel, Kimberly. Glad to have you along!

The paper trail for the creation of that 88 page questionnaire would be interesting. 75 groups targeted. This was a major operation by the IRS. Cincinnati is pretty close to Chicago!

That is what needs to happen....

a false story should be posted that a small conservative group in the irs targeted democrats.

Then, let the Orange flourish.
at the right time... “jk!...we just wanted you to seed what it waslike...now when real the hearings begin?”

"The IRS is not accustomed to apologizing for anything," Gross said. "Maybe they were trying to avert embarrassing congressional hearings or just get out in front of any criticism that might come their way. But in Washington, these things tend to fuel things rather than abate them."

Mark Levin nailed the IRS to the wall.

Mark Levin may have prompted IRS-conservative group revelations

And now they’re in charge of enforcing our healthcare.

Headline of the future:

Tea Party Rejects Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB, part of PPACA) apologies after reports surfaced of their practice of cutting off medical care...

This was all set in place by policies directed from the very top. Obama, Holder, Naploitano, et al, set out to destroy the tea party patriot movement, especially Christians and veterans who defend, God, country and constitution!! Even accused us in official government documents and written directives of being “dangerous terrorists.” This is a case of their jackbooted underlings just following “orders.”

Heads need to roll from on high!!
