Yes, Obama really does believe the American people are stupid. Anyone with a brain knows Obama borders on a pathological liar (someone who lies even when they don't have to lie) and a poll taken Monday showed that 37% of the people surveyed believe Obama is honest. Go figure. When one considers the groups targeted, it wasn't just Tea Party groups but any group that wanted spending reduced and even groups that were pro-Israel. These groups have been held up for tax-exempt approval for years while Obama's relative's group was OK'd in one month. Pro-Muslim groups got speedy approval as opposed to those friendly towards Israel.

as stated on the other site, not only were conservative groups seeking tax exempt status targeted then, liberal groups were also targeted, but that isn't relevant for some........

Like Boehner said...not who is fired, but who is going to jail. Remember Scooter going down not for being the known outer but to have disagreed with a "respected journalist". If I may quote Obama..."It's our turn".

Gio will probably take comfort knowing that 37% agree with him. But Gio, give explicit examples of liberal, progressive, Muslim groups that were discriminated by the IRS. Also, please list your trusted source. As a matter of fact, the group named after Obama got approval in one month. Until you do so, it's reasonable for the rest of us to think this is just you trying to rationalize the bubble you live in that Obama is honest and wonderful.

Sad state of affairs when the only thing Obama and Holder do know is Arizona is racist and are not allowed to bust illegal aliens.

Gioallie is nothing but a mouth piece for Obama. Makes statements which are obviously UNTRUE and NEVER is able to back them up with fact. Just like his HERO and SAVIOR OBAMA!

Wall Street Journal 5/16/13

"It is not even remotely possible that all this was an accident, a mistake. Again, only conservative groups were targeted, not liberal. It is not even remotely possible that only one IRS office was involved. Lois Lerner, who oversees tax-exempt groups for the IRS, was the person who finally acknowledged, under pressure of a looming investigative report, some of what the IRS was doing. She told reporters the actions were the work of "frontline people" in Cincinnati. But other offices were involved, including Washington. It is not even remotely possible the actions were the work of just a few agents. This was more systemic. It was an operation. The word was out: Get the Democratic Party's foes"

lonerider--your pal just accused me of posting a "LIE" 8:55pm. Now you probably are aware of the fact that IRS targeting of tax exempt entities is nothing new. Although fox AND or the right wing press isn't talking, THIS ACTIVITIE TOOK PLACE UNDER GW AS IN PROBABLY ALL ADMINISTRATIONS. But for your ignorant paL, and you can pass this on,that IRS under the gw administration, targeted the NAACP, Greenpeace and the liberal ALL SAINTS EPISCOPAL CHURCH of Pasadena, FOR AN ANTI-WAR SERMON--your PAL'S lIE" insult is a "lie." Good nite.......

Any ********* who submitted documents to the IRS claiming their "tea party" was not primarily political in order to secure tax-exempt status should be jailed for fraud.

lonerider--I supplied you with all the proof you need, that IRS targeting is nothing new in the political arena you need-I challenge you to prove the examples I posted and the site I supplied you with are false---and please don't run and hide as you did when monkeyboy challenged you for your invisible "proof." You are not interested in any honest exchange--only insults and baseless accusations........

GIOpit - do you have any inderstanding of what "suppy a link or source" means?? How's this - Obama's IRS targeted mothers against drunk driving. Where is your source Seadog? And I say - "I gave you a source - it's on the internet - see I gave you a source and you don't believe me".

Now, PLEASE provide a source WHERE LIBERAL GROUPS WERE TARGETED BY THE IRS - SPECIFICALLY, not just "I read it on the net". Can it be any more clear than that??

Here is a News Flash for you - All personal income tax (100%) collected by the I.R.S. goes to the Federal Reserve, aka the FED. This basically implies that the I.R.S. works for the FED. For example, according to the Congressional Research Service, 100% of all personal income tax collected for the year 2005 went, not to the government to provide goods and services expected, but to the FED. This was also pointed out by the Grace Commission, appointed by Ronald Reagan, in 1984.
