WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate Republican leader, who last year accused the Obama administration of Nixon-style dirty tricks, says the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups is part of a broader government assault on free speech.

McConnell and leader are mutually exclusive.

Well that is what I found in the AP title. Take it up with AP.

We can always count on marble-mouth McConnell to be out front fighting for our rights. /sarcasm

What Obama is doing goes so far beyond anything Nixon ever contemplated, let alone carried out, that the ultimate punishment should go beyond mere resignation. Now we will see if there are any Republican leaders-—McCain? McConnell? Graham? Alexander? Corker? Croaker? Crickets?

Well DUH What a brilliant insight. of course it is. The government wants to take your money, disarm you and shut you up - just like every other government. It want quiet little slaves who worship the turd in the white house and lick the jackboots of the sicherheitsdienst thugs who enforce the tyranny, in short they want us all like New Yorkers.

Leader? Republican?

The name of the party to which this clown claims to belong needs to be changed to the Republicrat Party. The Republican Party is dead and rotting. Better bury it.

What’s a republican leader.

Someone who does what the democrats want but isn't an official democrat.

What is sickening about this is McConnell is only pretending to be conservative because he has to face an electorate that elected Rand Paul. If it weren’t for his election campaign, he’d be in there trying to elbow McCain out of the way so he could get the first vote on amnesty.

You think we have free speech anymore? Think again. Try genuinely speaking your mind. The pc “lets celebrate diversity” types will be all over you, shouting you down, personally attacking you, even wishing some terrible fate would befall you. (Yes, they are that irony challenged) Free speech and true diversity of thought are not and cannot be allowed by the pc fascists. Don’t believe me? Try it. Create a fake fb account and go on there and speak your mind. You’ll be banned within a few weeks, depending on your activity level and how honest you really are. Note, only do this from public access points, not your home - just in case they decide to block your IP.

Depends on the sites themselves. Some are very strict as you have mentioned, and others have no problem.

Too bad the side-effect is delusions. You see everyone who doesn't toe your line of "conservative purity" as a Rinobot.

But, you keep on taking your meds, jackwagon. Don't forget to refuse to vote in honor of your conservative purity. You stand there in dignity while you let the RATs cut off your dick. Yeah, that'll show 'em!

God, what a bunch of juvenile idiots you and the rest of you boo-birds are!

McConnell says: “It needs to stop”

I remember a quote by Rush Limbaugh about a situation. He said: “Its not that it needs to stop, it that it needs to BE stopped.”

Of course, but the machine won’t allow that. We need a new party.

Look for the rebirth of the TP movement, this time as a new party.

GOP leader = 1940s French Army general, more or less...

That’s what we need. Even if it is a minority party (which is what the GOP is destined to become anyway). We need people who can speak the truth, who refuse to be shouted down, and who are willing to ignore the established propaganda media and go rogue in the new media.

Currently, the argument for the America of our ancestors is not being made. A candidate like that would be called every name in the book and every means necessary to destroy him would be made. PRISM? You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The LEFT is on the verge of establishing its dream: a Marxist, totalitarian state in America. Russia and China have a vested interest in this too. Do you think they have been helping the RATS?

That is why, if there is no move to have a new political party, I am wondering if down the road there will end up being a violent revolt as a result of all these oppressive efforts.

Truth is the only antidote for lies. It may take more time than I have on this earth, but freedom and liberty are hard to kill—even with more food stamps, government run healthcare and Obamaphones.

You have me confused with someone else. The so-called republican leadership are a bunch of bystanders. The people displaying leadership are not in the leadership positions. I have voted Republican since I turned 18 in 1972. Reagan is the only President I didn’t hold my nose to pull the lever for. But I voted for all the lesser of evils such as Nixon, Ford, GHWB, Dole, GWB, McCain, and Romney. You called me an A hole for post 2. You are the delusional one here and a pansy to boot. Drink your malox and take your BP meds and buzz off.

More than an hour late and he probably has more dollars than he needs.
