Also Crazy Amy was convicted of fraud because she used somebody else's social security number to get a line of credit at a bank.

Man I really hope I don't get riled up with or sucked into politics ever again. I can't believe I supported any politician ever. It's funny how stressed and obsessed people become with all this, when it's a bunch of bull shit and the media is just playing everyone like puppets.

Seriously people, go out, breathe some fresh air or something...these guys don't give a **** about you or this country or anything other than themselves.

Kevin...if we closed the loopholes, could you get behind lowering the corporate tax rate to 22%?

That "Oh Shit!" you heard someone scream earlier was coming from the White House.

http://www.latimes.com/news/politics...,6645565.story
Quote:
A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the 5th Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.

Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening — or why she didn’t disclose it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III. Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

I have been defending Barry on this scandal, but this doesn't look good.

No it doesn't.

She is probably trying to get immunity. There's a Democrat from Queens who is saying she lied to him about this two days before she revealed this story.

She revealed it by having a friend ask her a question at a speech she was giving. Washington Post's Fact Checker gave her Four Pinocchios
Quote:
Lerner then contacted a friend, Celia Roady, a tax attorney with the Washington firm Morgan Lewis, to get her to ask a question about the targeting, according to a statement by Roady on Friday. (Roady had previously denied this was a planted question when asked directly by participants at the meeting.)
So Lerner was dissembling when she suggested that a simple well-aimed question prompted the disclosure.
In fact, just two days before the ABA conference, Lerner appeared before Congress and was asked by Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) about the status of investigations into 501(c)(4) groups. She provided a bland answer about a questionnaire on the IRS Web site, failing to take the opportunity to disclose the results of the probe. Small wonder that Crowley is now calling for her to resign, saying that Lerner lied to him.

Interesting take on the AP case by a long time national security reporter
Quote:
But how many times can the media claim such an action is “chilling sources?” That was a claim during the Valerie Plame case under the Bush administration and repeatedly invoked as the Obama Justice Department has pursued leakers.

The risk of breaking the law apparently didn’t chill those who leaked the information to the AP. That’s what should be considered chilling.

The reality is that this is not a whistleblowing case. There are no heroes here, and the press in this instance was not protecting individuals trying to expose government malfeasance.

i don't follow this stuff too much, but one thing i'm not very clear on-- is it realistic that hillary and bill return to the white house next term?

he almost died, she must be a bit burned out by now, and they're both getting older. i mean, with so many opportunities for them to make a difference across a spectrum of areas, do they really want to spend themselves to the bone on another high-stakes extended dance?

OTOH, do the dems have anyone else remotely ready?

It depends how far these scandal hearings go. Right now it looks like they might impact some congressional elections, but by the time the presidential primaries roll around there's a good chance they will be done with and forgotten and Obama will have had time to put some distance between them and anyone associated with his administrations (Biden, Clinton, etc.).

Otherwise Al Gore maybe?

BIDEN!

But yes, Hillary definitely does want to become President. Is your question, do they want to do this? The answer is yes. If the question is will she win, that remains to be seen.

She is definitely running though. A lot of Democrats were happy that she just got rid of some bad staff from 2008. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifest...767_story.html

Lois Lerner plead the fifth.


Big Article looking into what was going on in the emails discussing Benghazi talking points and General Petraeus's involvement, there was not only a fight between the CIA and the State Department. There was disagreement within the CIA with a couple of folks objecting to what Petraeus wanted.

On a side note, it looks like Anthony Foxx is sailing through confirmation as transportation secretary.
