2. In August 2010, the IRS distributed a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) list for Tea Party organizations applying for tax exempt status.

Life in the People’s Republic of Obamastan.
He seems awfully stuck on "stupidly" as a concept. But it's never him or his enemy islamist pals. Oh, no.
What a tool! I am sure that Stewart sees thorugh him but what can Stewart do now? Obama praised him to the high heavens......Obama OWNS Stewart!
What a stuttering, stammering fool.
Too bad people don’t see the real Obama.
They see the slick package marketed to get votes.
Unscripted, this guy is a babbling brook of useless information.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I think he’s coming to the realization hope and change are long gone and is trying to pass the buck for his failure.
Or, he’s delusional
“ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A MEMBER OF THE TEA PARTY?”
Stalinists love their partisan witchhunts.
Does he blame “the IRS mulching their harddrives” on a congressional bill as well?
Well he can blame Republicans, ‘cause he’s Preezy.
