Unbelievable, where did I say that the IRS was the greatest thing since FDR? (LOL) Did anyone happen to listen to what Lerner had to say before pleading the 5th? If she is lying it will come out - so be it. Like that would be the first time. This is an IRS thing NOT an Obama hanging! Oh, sure, the boss should know all. I watched an hilarious interview last night between Rove and O'Reilly. It was 100% speculation. I tell you, that "fair and balanced" network sure is out for Obama with absolutely nothing to back it up. Keep grasping at straws because that is all you have to grasp at.

It looks like the IRS was just used as "muscle" for the Obama administration. Go after anybody who dares speak out. I hope the repubs don't go soft. They need to start throwing people in jail.

Howard-Rove has said that his group has followed all the rules because he knows he's under a microscope. Maybe he's telling the truth, maybe he isn't. That still doesn't answer the question, If the IRS did nothing wrong why did Lois Lerner take the 5th. There has got to be a reason.

Super Pac American Crossroads has an affiliate run by Karl Rove called Crossroads GPS. It is organized as a nonprofit social-welfare group that conceals its donors and reports only a fraction of its political activities. Rove was bragging about the amount of money that went through Crossroads GPS, thus leading to an IRS investigation. By the way, FedUpL8ly, why can't you follow your own advice? You are delusional if you believe that you are objective.

Lone- Howard seems unable or unwilling to understand the difference between the majority wanting existing background checks but not wanting to expand them "a la Feinstein". As for you madman- you leap to a conclusion about what political party I belong to without knowing anything about me. This assumption leads me to believe you are one of those who view what transpires from a strictly partisan viewpoint. In the future, why not try to maintain an objective perspective, stick to facts as much as possible and try to resist "your inner partisan".

I think howie just found out from his far left hate sites that they've decided not to blame Rove and Bush for this one. Oops, your bad howie. Look on the bright side, maybe Bush gave the order to let four Americans die in Benghazi.

During all the hearings so far, not one Democrat has suggested that Karl Rove was behind the IRS thing. Just you Howie. Where do you get this crap from? Come on, get out of mommy's basement and get some fresh air.

Come on Howie! You could at least say it's all Bush's fault and claim you answered my question. Or better yet, ask a question of your own. That's what folks do who can't answer a simple question.

howie-so it's all Rove's fault. At least you didn't blame Bush. If it's all a right-wing conspiracy, why did Lois Lerner take the 5th? Don't bother answering, you can't.

bluesman, it did start in Cincinnati as far as we can tell so far. Everything has to start somewhere. The IRS has targeted those not wishing to pay taxes since their inception, as well as they should be. This particular "man hunt" came about because of Carl Rove bragging on how much tax free money he had to spend on political campaigns. He wanted this investigation to stir things up, to make the Obama administration look bad. After all, with the economy getting so much better, the wars winding down, the righties need something for their talking points so they go after what they can. You think this will be an Iran-Contra? LOL - you wish.

"And the senators voted just they way their constituents wanted." Loner, you live in a world all your own. Many districts are 90% in favor of better background checks. Tell me Loner, why are you not in favor of them? You wouldn't be able to get any more guns if they ran your name? That cam be the only logical reason.

If you torture the numbers you will get them to say anything you want. The bottom line is, most Dems in tough re-election races will run like the wind from gun control. What's happened in the past will almost always happen in the future.

LOL - I just went to your "poll." Those that voted were right wing nuts that commented the usual "you aren't taking my guns away from me!" How typical. My polls state that various senators who voted against the background checks said their constituents told them to do so—despite nationwide surveys in the past few months indicating that roughly 90 percent of the nation favors background checks. How about that loner? I can give you 25 senators that voted against it where their state polling for it was 70% or more - majority of them were 85 - 90%. These same 25 have a B to A+ rating with the NRA! I expect that will put you in your place, loner.

I'm the idiot? What kind of tangent are you on? I only said that the majority of the house voted AGAINST their constituents by a HUGE margin on the legislation for BACKGROUND checks to purchase firearms. I can name 100 or more that voted against this legislation while their constituents were in favor of background checks of OVER 70%! Also, your "trifecta of scandals" will be proven not as "scandalous" as you believe. Only the IRS has merit and this has been going on since the inception of the IRS. We shall see how it turns out but to call these a huge scandal will only make you look like a fool later.

loneriderrr1, those figures for background checks are absurd. I'm just talking background checks here. Why must you lie and spin those figures? Does it really make you feel like somebody's hero to lie like that?

I'm Proud to have Tom Reed representing us,he's a defender of the 2nd Amendment.Also the 75-90% that want gun registration is BS.Honest polls are the opposite.The Hero's that help protect us(Police)are 90% in favor of Tom Reeds vote against gun control.A poll done by PBS was even higher.loneriderr1 or Seadog can give you the precise figures as I don't have them handy.

FedUpL8ly, FedUpL8ly, FedUpL8ly, I have a better idea! Let's go back and re-vote on every legislation that has ever been passed since the beginning of Congress! That should take up enough time in Congress for the next 10 to 20 years so nothing else gets done as is happening now. Also, I find it quite amusing when you right wing extremists tout that going to Iraq was widely bipartisan. Yes, bipartisan based on lies, lies, LIES!

Seadog says "Also Howie and the Community Health Consultant, have you ever heard about a representative voting the way his district's people want him too?" This is so funny and ironic considering the overwhelming percentage of constituents in hundreds of districts that were 75% to 95% in favor of the gun background legislation but all of those republicans voted against it. You better not ever use an example like that again, Seapuppy.

Carlaw, you stated Roberts decision was wrong based on the constitution. That is not an opinion. An opinion would have been you disagree with his decision. Your statement makes it sound like you are more of an authority on the constitution than the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. WRONG! FedUp, get real. This has everything to do with ego. Had Roberts decision gone the other way, you would be touting him as a genius. You still don't get it. This is the problem with your party. If anyone, including a party memember, disagrees with your agenda or way of thinking , they are wrong. Your party encourages wackos like Palin and Bachman, and chastises people like Christie, Roberts, Snow, and Colin Powell. And this way of thinking is the reason your party will continue to lose elections. Ridiculous.
