    It appears obama is not fooling any one on this now. People are starting to wise up that obama is the liar that he is. 82% of the people are following the IRS scandal


    "A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 82% of voters nationwide are now following the IRS targeting story, including 44% who are following the story “Very Closely.” The overall number of voters who are following is up from 74% a month ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Given that we simply don't know, what's the point of "I think the IRS did it!" .. "No, I think the White House did it!!"

    Why would a local IRS field office take it upon themselves to attempt something of this magnitude. Good way to find the unemployment line.

    To suggest that the IRS is apolitical is nonsense. What percentage of IRS workers are democrats/liberals? They funded demo's 2 to 1, and they are represented by the NTEU. I still don't understand why we continue to tolerate public servants being unionized. I think we can reasonably conclude that the marching orders came from the White House. There's too much of a link between demos and the IRS and their union leadership and members for my comfort. The agency cannot function fairly in this political climate, and it really needs to be abolished.

    Lol @ Rasmussen--the GOP push poller of choice.

    You must have missed the news today that Cummings blew up Issa's narrative with his transcript release.

    The Cincinnati field office was responsible for screening applications for 501(c)(4) status. I know the righties will continue to believe what they choose to believe although the following should shed light on what actually happened in Cincinnati.

    Of course, the IRS wouldn't actually lie to us, now would they?

    "In DC", what does that mean....is that really how the question was phrased?

    If so, talk about trying to skew the results

    DC is where our federal Gov is located, they could have been more specific

    "Do you believe the IRS decision to target conservatives was made by President Obama" is a better question to ask

    what do you call believing that they are lying without any factual evidence to support it, and actual testimony to dispute it?

    Like Lois didn't know about the targeting until she had the question brought up by a plant, at her Friday news conference.
    We could go on all day, but we know that they are falling all over themselves trying not to get caught up in their own lies. Of course if she had nothing else to hide, she should not have taken the fifth. The thing you can reasonably conclude is that these agents/employees of this agency are lying, and if not lying taking the fifth.

    I think the clear implication is that the decision was made by someone in the White House. Possibly not specifically Obama, but very likely (if it wasn't him) that he knew about it and did nothing.

    I call it the stark realization that your messiah whose whole adult life has been built on lies and half truths is coming to an end. The LMSM is starting to get the idea and they are finished blindly swallowing his lies. Spin that however you want.
