    @TRex84 You have to admit that the IRS DID IN FACT admit to targeting conservative groups. Why do you think Lerner plead the 5th and was allowed to retire without any further investigation or prosecution?

    I've always wondered what the scale of measurement was for corruption... I guess a "smidgen" is slightly less than the levels we see in IL, where two of our governors went to prison for a "wee bit" of it.

    "Agency officials have admitted to giving extra scrutiny to Tea Party groups when they applied for tax exemption." If this sentence is true then yes that is a form of corruption.

    I'm no fan of the tea party, I've heard it time and time again that they aren't about social issues but the actions and words from various tea party leaders that makes the news contradicts that. If they truly didn't care about social issues they would realize the libertarian party covers their beliefs.

    But regardless if they were picked for extra scrutiny over other political parties that shows favoritism for the others, thus corruption.

    THe fact is that the Tea Party groups ARE political organizations. They are SUPPOSED TO get extra scrutiny. In fact, they all should have been denied tax exempt status to begin with.

    @Libertyiskey Why would extra scrutiny be a problem? The Tea Party was all over the news holding political rallies for 4 years. Any group doing that, who then applies for tax exepmt status SHOULD get extra scrutiny.

    The fact is that the Tea Party groups are liars for applying for tax exempt status in the first place!

    anti tax groups applying for tax exempt status are prime candidates for extra scrutiny. You want to just rubber stamp anyone and everyone who applies for tax exempt status?

    If there was no wrong doing why did Learner and others plead the fifth, and why was she allowed to retire instead of facing a full and open investigation not hampered by the white house?

    that is sad that anyone can just walk away and never face charges,that alone seems to be corruption and proof of it.

    The IRS targets everyone for scrutiny. That's what they do.
    O'Reilly is a grand stander. I don't know why the president graced him with even a minute of his time.

    @UScentral Not true. Imagine if the IRS scrutinized each and every person and group that came through there. And you think they're slow now!!? Try again...

    Was any of this tied to the WH, was anyone in the WH forced to resign? Let's compare this to the firing of 7 AG's that was tied to the Bush WH, there were 9 resignations including Alberto Gonzales, Harriet Meirs and Karl Rove ... of course the big difference between these two cases is that after the investigations, the democrats didn't continue hang onto it like a pit bull!

    I don't believe anything that lying bastard says. I used to, but he has lied consistently... uh, excuse me... "misspoke" consistently throughout his presidency. I used to think Jimmy Carter was the worst president of my time but at least he was probably honest.

    It must be the new Barry dictionary, lie equals a boneheaded action, corruption means boneheaded decision making. It will work for the sheep and the low info.

    and all the former Democrat staffers who now work for ABC CBS and NBC we're already briefed by the White House as to how they should react whenever Obama's scandals are mentioned , attack Christie.

    That's probably because few of you understand what a scandal looks like, first there is the accusation, the governors office shut down traffic in Ft. Lee as political payback. Then there is the denial by the governor, no one in my office has any knowledge or caused the shutdown. Then there is the evidence, emails between his staff and the port authority saying, time for traffic problems in Ft. Lee! Then the fallout, firings and resignation as the governor is shocked, just shocked that his own staff did this and lied to him about it.

    Now if there were emails between the Obama WH and the IRS stating, time to give the tea party some extra scrutiny, much like Nixon did ... you might have a case!

    During Richard Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign, the president's White House counsel, John Dean, met with the head of the Internal Revenue Service, Johnnie Mac Walters, and presented him with an envelope. Inside was a list of approximately 200 names -- the names of Nixon's political enemies and with it came the understanding that the IRS begin investigating the "enemies list" and perhaps start sending some people to jail.

    That was a totally incomprehensible statement or he's just trying to rewrite history. Ms. Learner took the Fifth! If there was nothing illegal (incriminating) about what happened, why did she need to take the Fifth? This will be chalked up to just another lie by Obama. It was a whole lot more than a few rogue agents acting on their own, AND it's still going on. Give me a break here - no one (rational at least) believes this.

    I have a friend who is a doctor in Vincennes IN who has spoken out against Obama Care and the link with them to CVS pharmacies and prices being jacked up. He's been visited by the IRS, DEA, and smeared in editorials from Let wing rags on top of lawsuits. If you don't obey, they will send out their Gestapo!

    So far he's gotten a lot of support from patients, other doctors, lawyers and more, and is making a dent.

    OMG. None of the doctors, health care workers, nursing profession in my large town has one good thing to say about the ACA. Looks like the Gestapo has a lot of work to do. How is the ACA going to work without any DOCTORS? What a mess!!!

    Same here...my wife is a Cardiology / Trauma nurse of 33yr experience and all the doctors she knows hates it and so do the hospital administrators. They're all looking for the outs.

    @BravoJuliet ACA is a complete and total destruction of our healthcare system...Just find comfort in the fact that the MAJORITY of America has their backs.

    The resident has a track record of lying when telling the truth would be easier and more believable. If his lips are moving, you can be sure that he's lying.

    When lies have been tagged to you credibility has been lost. You Mr. President have no more credibility or trustworthiness that can be afforded to you. So your word on this matter means nothing.

    What was a lie? Lerner pleading the 5th? I watched it on TV. And there were several stories that recorded her retirement and that she would not face any further prosecution or investigation. So where's the lie?
