Until the Repub. party can come up with a true patriot that truly represents the people and has a clean closet this is what we'll have.

"America's current moral decline is directly linked to the fact that we have elected, appointed, and hired too many leaders who have no character." From the Book 12 Ordinary Men.

Impeach him for what? Incompetence is not an impeachable offense.

When did "it's job" become added scrutiny requiring additional documentation not required of others to organizations that the low level minions disagreed with?

If Obama is impeached, you are aware that Joe Biden will become President of The United States, right?

It was really hot out yesterday. Summertime coincidence or government weather weapon?

I don't believe "it's job" is being a political attack dog for any administration to go after their enemies. This was clearly the case.

Another talking points letter. It's always amusing to post a few facts on the Sun Gazette but here goes (I can not wait for the responses)

1) Over 80 percent of applications submitted for tax-exempt status were from conservative organizations. (Only ~1/3 of the reviewed applications were from these groups)

2) The only organization to have its tax-exempt status revoked was one run by Democratic women to try and encourage more women to run for office.

There is no requirement that any 501(c)(4) organization apply for approval of their tax-exempt status. 3) If they do not apply, there is a risk of audit and disqualification down the road, but they are not required to apply to be a 501(c)(4) entity.

Thanks Bob. But those on the right are not interested in facts they are more interested in connecting Obama to a scandal.

How true or every conservative politician would be impeached for sure.

"If Obama is impeached, you are aware that Joe Biden will become President of The United States, right?"

While Joe frequently gets his foot stuck in his mouth, at least he doesn't HATE his country.

The HOUSE does the impeaching, which would brand Obama the miserable president he is, forever in the history books.

The SENATE votes to onvict, which the cowards in the SENATE would never do. They would only make themselves look like the fools they already are.

By the time an impeachment were completed, there would be maybe a year and a half for Biden to serve..... AS A LAME DUCK with no power.

Chris thinks that it's the IRS's job to attack the political opponents of the President. I wonder what country he thinks he lives in. What the IRS did was not only unethical, it was illegal. The activity has been tracked to the White House and so far the only people to lose their jobs are two guys who were leaving anyway. Does anyone know why Nixon resigned? The second article of impeachment was improper use of the IRS to target political opponents. I guess that's OK now. Too bad for Nixon, he was just ahead of his time.

I am sure he knew what was going on. He probably directed it. With Obama, Harry Reid, Hillary "whats the difference" Clinton,Joe "the idiot" Biden and Nancy "you have to vote it in before you read it" Pelosi what could you possibly expect? Reid and Pelosi should go before Obama, Listen to them speak, they are both mental midgets and worse yet they have enough constituents to continually vote them into office, your right, we are in big trouble, we are just not realizing it yet. For now we can only make Obamas last years as a lame duck president and not pass anymore of the liberals garbage legislation, like Obamacare, now there is a real mess and our President wants the IRS to implement it? What a joke!

I did see the letter Gavin and what was found out was that no one on the right wants to debate. They don't know how.

You did not put forth a premise for a debate.

The right wants to debate, but it's tough to debate the left with their 'my way or the highway' approach

Yeah...there were people who used to constantly-complain about Bill Clinton's character...a period, during which we'd watched THE GREATEST ECONOMY THIS COUNTRY HAD EVER EXPERIENCED!!

Despite what you "moralists" insist, it's always about the economy...and, always has been.

Gimme a break. Despite what you're hearing from FAUX Noise, Porky Limbaugh and the NY Post, the IRS "cast" a MUCH-wider-"net", than what you're assuming. There's nothing all-THAT-special, about T-Baggers (and, their "patriot"-brethren), that they'd drawn "added"-scrutiny. You're gettin' a "little" too-full o' yourselves.

Yeah...I'd heard Obama had something (to do with it), as well...from someone who MUST have spent next-month's rent on tin-foil.
