Can you imagine the amount of coverage that the alphabet channel nightly news propaganda shows would be giving this story (not to mention the rest of the MSM, i.e. NY Slimes etc.), if this had occurred under a Republican administration?

YES! I want to stand with Media Matters for America by making a tax-deductible donation today. Together, we’ll continue to keep conservative misinformation in check, correct biased “news” reports, and ramp up our efforts to restore responsibility to our media landscape.

“Smidgen” in Swahili (Mr. Bottom’s native language) means “a boat load.”

This woman should swing from a rope. She has used the power of the Federal government, threatening to use the same power the tax agents have used to kill and destroy, to chill free speech, a Constitutionally-protected right.

Interesting that Democrats were claiming that there wasn’t involvement by the WH. Only the DOJ for now and nothing yet, but I bet if they keep poking around, they’ll find some level of collusion.

Too bad, there isn’t a whistle blower somewhere. Who knows, maybe Lerner will turn states evidence as she sees the case against her building.

DOJ has someone in charge of election crimes? Is there a more underworked person in a Dem admin?

So I guess the “smidgen” retort by the President is now officially and verified BS?

These people are dysfunctionally incoherent that pretty soon they will do something even more stupid like hire Reverend “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton as an official spoxhole for their 2014 midterm campaigns…oh wait.

It would be wall to wall breaking news. “Tonight the latest on an embattled White House trying to cope with an enormous scandal. Will the Presidency survive this scandal?”

Only after she sings and confesses about her bosses involvement.

Typical Demonkrat, they do this crap all the time and nothing coms of it. What will it take? I really think that they should call for a grand jury on the whole lot of them, including Holder and Obama.
