    If so, you should be able to relate. What has Bush done now?

    The LMSM: only follow up on a scandel if it originated by the Tea Party.

    Otherwise, on to the next weather disaster. We know our audience: they don't read and have the attention span of a fly.

    The same posters who claim 9/11 was 100% W's fault, even though his first budget hadn't been implemented yet, now claim that Obama had nothing to do with the IRS scandal despite him being in office for four years. The classic Too Hot double standard strikes again.

    Not to mention the collective yeast infection the left had over the "connection" between President Bush and Enron, Halliburton, and Hurricane Katrina.

    Again, President Obama not coordinating the attack doesn't make it not a scandal.

    Way WAY over their collective heads with that soberly written post.

    Passing a budget is just a red herring; it was missed intelligence that was the problem not the budget cycle.

    And as Harry Truman said, the buck stops here. The President can't take credit for killing OBL or reducing unemployment while not accepting blame for what happens elsewhere in his administration. Life's not that generous.

    But the real THFSG double standard is how each side can't be objective.

    That was a quality goalpost moving almost equal to Dave's.

    I thought he was predicting your next post's content, didn't see any goal post movement. Perhaps incarceration for war crimes or something along those lines!

    Not that you have ever responded after you throw bombs, but it not fiction that the IRS was indeed targeting conservative groups. The only issue at hand is how high up the order originated.

    That the White House knew about it over an year ago, there is no doubt. And did not stop it.
