If gio is trying to pass for a independent, he better learn to stop venting on "righties" and say something unflattering about lefties once in a while.

I'll bet there are those who have no political affiliation, who choose to support a candidate from either or both political policies--I would think everyone knew that.........wouldn't you fedup?

FACTS..missing from this report.

In applying for TAX EXEMPT 501 (c) status, some conservative groups received more review. Of course NOT ONE WAS DENIED the tax exempt status. That was only for a LIBERAL GROUP. Yes, you heard me..look it up.

From 2010 - 2012 the requests for tax exempt status for groups who are primarily "social welfare" groups DOUBLED. So that meant the IRS who is to review the applications had double the work. Now what they did was essentially profile..which we all know is wrong.

However, to make this a bigger issue than it really is warranted is called POLITICS. Keeps them from doing the work of the people...like passing a JOBS BILL

As I think about it, now that Osama Bin Laden is dead, it's quite possible the biggest danger to our country is now "Obama bin lyin".

Gio- Try to read between the lines for once. If your source said Shulman is not currently registered as a Democrat is not the same as saying he was not previously registered as a Democrat. Actions speak louder than words, namely political donations for one. My only point, and one that seems to elude you, is Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee made repeated references to Shulman being appointed by Bush with the implication that Shulman was a Republican or that it was Bush who should be responsible for his actions under the Obama Administration. This is how 37% of the people polled think Obama is honest.

what is the point to this--Pfieffer is quoted by you to prove what--that the pres. lied? And the "someone" who "buried Shulman's political affiliation" is still an "unnamed source" OR A FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION...NO MAS.

you made a point on the other site, and I responded, to your count of my "irrelevant" posts. Are you keeping a count also of comments like the 5-18-13@10:51pm, from one of your associates? Let me help here, of course you aren't......have a nice Sunday.

fed-up, you stated for the record that Shulman "is a democrat." I found that he is registered "neither as a democrat or republican, but has donated in the past to democrats." You also stressed "half truths"----interesting.

By default, Obama is responsible. He put into these positions individuals who think like him, have his ideology and agenda. These people did not end up in these positions of authority by accident.

Honestly, with all the information out there since 2007 about Obama, I am not surprised these types of scandals have come up during his reign. I am slightly surprised it took this long.

Gio- IRS Director Shulman may have been appointed by Bush in one of his bipartisan outreach moments but the guy is a Democrat. A fact that all the Dems fail to point out. Just another example of a half-truth in a long line of half-truths.

Well, you're talking about IRS and I am commenting on crooksandliars posting about the FED. And the dems have already saidit was low level people. After trying the Bush appointee route. Then the almost gone guy stepping down a couple weeks early. Lame. real lame.
