    Are black blinders circling your head?

    Why exactly do you think Obama called 157 meetings with the head of the IRS?

    It's the right wing way. Perfect little programmed droogies eating up their Fox pablum and washing it down with Limbaugh kool-aid. Yummy!

    The on-going efforts to obfuscate, conceal, misrepresent the facts and withhold documents lead to the obvious conclusion that there is a cover up on the IRS targeting, Bengazi and putting guns in the hands of drug dealers reminds me of a famous movie line: YOU CANT STAND THE TRUTH!

    Why hide the truth if there is nothing to be feared?

    So you think that Issa should go ahead and release the full transcripts?
    Me, too.

    I think Issa should released the entire documents-if this is a scavenger hunt then it needs to be over-I just do not think it is-if she has nothing to hide then there was zero reason to plead the 5th

    Not really.

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickung...ot-visit-the-white-house-157-times-after-all/

    And, yes, unfortunately that is the way it goes here. You, for example, started a thread about Lerner's email but the email didn't say anything close to what you claimed it said. (You should have actually read it rather than relying on the rightwing website that had to later correct itself.) And then, remarkably, another resident conservative started another thread saying the thing when he clearly hadn't read the email.
    You started a thread claiming Obama had proposed 442 tax increases, but the list included things like Obama wanting to increase the mileage deduction for volunteers. Someone decided to call that a tax increase and you bought it.
    Or the folks who claimed Obama never took responsibility for Benghazi. Or the folks who claimed he issued a stand-down order. And on and on.
    It's pretty much what you guys do here.

    You think that Issa refusing to release the transcripts of the witnesses who testified before his committee is the same as Lerner invoking the fifth?

    no- I have no idea why he won't release the testimony- if the rules permit it to be released then he should do so

    I think the fact that Lerner took the 5th is because she doe indeed have something to hide

    Sure.

    Do you also believe the administration should provide all memos and communications free of any and all redactions?

    What are they hiding? You somehow seem less interested or concerned with that failure of full and complete disclosure. Wonder why.

    Your premise has been proven false. What exactly do you hope to prove by continuing this childlike game?

    No. Facts are facts. Lerner did not meet with Obama 157 times.

    All boils down to a comparison of the list of donors from lists of multiple Tea Party organizations demonstrated those identified as contributing to those groups were 1,000% more likely to be audited than the general population. Not 10%. Not even 100%. Not even 5x more likely.

    That cannot be spun as anything other than targeting.

    I sincerely expect rivergator to spend the same amount of time and bandwidth asking why Cummings and the administration are not being completely forthcoming with all their communications and internal memos (in unredacted form) since he asserts they are doing everything possible to bring the complete and total truth to light - only to be obstructed in their heavenly motive by Issa.

    Right river?

    You know what else can't be spun? Liberal groups were reviewed also.
