McConnell tells Obama 'no more stonewalling' in IRS scandal
al Reuters ^ | May 14, 2013 | Thomas Ferraro

Posted on 05/14/2013 1:30:59 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called on President Barack Obama on Tuesday to make available for questioning everyone who knew about the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups, and demanded "no more stonewalling."

With Congress preparing to hold hearings on the IRS's holding conservative groups to extra scrutiny, McConnell said he was "calling on the president to make available, completely and without restriction, everyone who can answer the questions we have as to what was going on at the IRS, who knew about it, and how high it went."

Mitch loaned the balls to Boehner, who managed to lose them in matched play with Zero....enough to make grown men cry...

Coming clean on the IRS scandal would mean the left losing a lot of power.
No way will they make that choice.

Holder just announced that criminal investigations will begin.

This could simply be a distraction from the Benghazi stuff. I think the AP stuff is the same.

They already have people they can perp walk on both issues. Get Benghazi off the front pages is the most important thing to them.

Mitch, I can answer that question. Hell, anyone can answer that after FAST and FURIOUS. ELIGIBILITY, EPA SCAM. BLACK PANTHER VOTER FRAUD. BENGHAZI, AP WIRE TAP.
1) I didn’t know anything about it.
2) We will investigate this all the way
3) It was all conceived and carried out by low level’s

I’m not so sure the Republican Party has enough smarts to turn this nation around. When they get through forming all their damned committees (they need a committee to keep track of their committees), it may be too late. Just get the impeachment proceeding going and CUT THE CRAP! Go for it, Tea Party. Let’s get the job done.

From what Mark Levin said, these guys knew about this long ago and really did nothing; Issa sent a letter. Mark did all the legwork. McConnell and Boehner are wimps and not patriots. They need to sit down and stop embarrassing us. Let someone who will bravely stand up to left lead.

Man up? No where in The Gobblers statement does he mention holding the persons responsible. He only wants to use it as a campaign issue. The hacks responsible for this should go to jail!

Should. Won’t but should. Too many psuedocons still think the GOP is on their side and fight people like us who try ‘holding feet to the fire” (just like they claimed they wanted in selling us Romney)rather than the people screwing them and America.

If being a purist means I want the people involved to go to jail instead of a campaign issue? Then I am a purist.

Careful! Many of the Democrats...sorry, “Conservatives” haunting FR lately have flatly said that purity is wrong. I have wasted uncounted hours trying to get them to explain why believing in principles and standing by them is wrong.

Best I have gotten is that only the principles they claim are OK at a given time are acceptable. AKA situational ethics. The ones espoused by Washington, Franklin, Adams etc are to be put aside in pursuit of the almighty ‘win’.

See my post history for details.

So don’t be surprised when this and like threads devolve into the GOP fanclub berating you for your bitterly clinging ways.
