    The republican party leadership is investigating the IRS for their abuses of the tea party. Funny thing is, the GOP hates the tea party as much as the democrats.

    Only the elitist R's dislike the Tea Party, they fear the lost of control. Actually, the mainstream R's are mostly Tea Party members or sympathizers. The political irony is that the Tea Party is the actual conservative wing. The R elitist's are spending the money as fast as the the liberals. Remember, it's the House that writes the checks. Nancy Pee-lousy sure did, and does.

    I just watched a bit on the IRS situation. They were saying that this kind of abuse by IRS has been going on since at least the 90's. Seems an independent criminal investigation should take place to determine the depth of the problem and send violators to prison, no matter which party they are associated with.

    Obama firing a interim department head that was to retire soon, and still get his retirement is meant only to appease the citizens. IRS misconduct would have to involve past administrations.

    It wasn't just the IRS targeting the tea party but also other groups viewed as conservative. Likely it was not the director who ordered this, but lower down affirmative-action hires who took inspiration from things said by people in the Obama administration. And, maybe it started even earlier? Now, we'll probably never know, since Obama pushed that man under the bus.
