US Representative Michael E. Capuano on Monday said he was troubled by reports that the Internal Revenue Service had aggressively pursued conservative organizations, and called them reminiscient of the Nixon administration.
On the growing focus in Congress on the attacks on the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya last year, Capuano said the death of four Americans there raised legitimate questions. But he said, based on the information available, he expected the issue to end up becoming the typical right-left type of nonsense you see on one station, but eventually falls off the others.
He said the recent reports that IRS targeted small-government groups for extra scrutiny were in a different category. Asked to discuss the reports, Capuano said that if the accounts were true, Theres no way in the world, Im going to defend that. Hell, I spent my youth vilifying the Nixon administration for doing the same thing.

The sole qualification for President of the United States of America that Barack Obama was able to offer was the fact that he was Black (and only half Black at that).
I think he’s sadly mistaken if he believes he’s going to be able to pass off the Benghazi attack as a “left-right thing” that will fall off the airwaves soon.
There was serious malfeasance there and it resulted in the deaths of Americans and the strengthening of AQ. Terrorists all over the world were encouraged by it and in fact one of the things Obama is desperately trying to cover up is the growing number of attempted (and successful) Muslim attacks on the US, both domestically and abroad.
I’m pretty sure Congress is not thrilled that they have been monitored by IRS via AP monitoring of calls with Congress.
This is really bad for 0bama0
I can’t wait until we have grown ups leading the nation again. We’ll have Keystone, we’ll have jobs, we’ll repeal 0-IRS-care....
NIXON X 500,000!
