More relief from @ahandout 's insanity:
Apparently the GOP has fooled themselves into thinking they've already fixed their problems!
How many taxpayers lost their homes so that the IRS can line dance? Seriously, pull the plug on the clowns from the White House on down.
More about relief, and relief from @ahandout 's insane cackling:
Another Scandal at the IRSAudit finds misuse of credit cards.
Of course the Liberal media is all over this, not. Penalties for corrupt IRS employees should be double the penalties that they impose on taxpayers.
Barry put this award right next to his Nobel Peace Prize. His next award will be for honesty and integrity. He he he.
only event at the White House that isn’t closed to the press on
Wednesday is a ceremony in which he’ll accept an award for being open to
According to his public schedule, Obama has four behind-closed-doors meetings from 10 a.m. to 3:05 p.m.: his daily briefing, a talk with the USAID administrator, a session with senior advisers, and a huddle with his defense secretary. All of the meets are in the Oval Office, and all of them are “closed press,” the White House says.
But at 2:55 p.m., Obama will emerge to “accept an award from a coalition of good government groups and transparency advocates to recognize ‘his deep commitment to an open and transparent government—of, by, and for the people’ in conjunction with Sunshine Week,” the White House said in guidance to reporters.
They're turning on each other now. Louie Gohmert blames McCain for BENGHAZI!!!!!!!
Chris Matthews has a hissy fit over Barry and Eric. Matthews will be audited and investigated by the FBI, and the Justice Department.
“For anybody to run around in Washington and say ‘We don’t run the IRS,’ or ‘We can’t control the Justice Department, and I’m recusing myself,’ they say ‘The steering wheel doesn’t control the car any more.’ The person says ‘I want the person I voted for to be in charge. The only power I have, and you’re telling me I don’t have it? Because you don’t have it. And that is going to really bug people, especially people that care about government doing a good job.”
THREE more times Shulman is asked, under oath, about the 118 times the he visited the White House.
The liberal media is making you slobbering Obamabots look spectacularly DUMB.
@ 50 seconds Shulman is reminded that he is under oath, and he reaffirms that he never talked to anybody at the White House about targeting certain groups even though he visited the White House 118 times.
The GOP will doom his White House Ambitions. His arrogance is just the cherry on the sh8t sunday.
Ted Cruz’s personality problem The Texas senator is annoying, and doesn’t play well with others. Will that doom his White House ambitions?
Liberal Media Shuns Holder. Obama defends hypocrisy.
WH defends Holder's off-the-record meetings with media
In addition to CBS News, major news organizations declining the invitation to meet with Holder include the New York Times, the Associated Press, CNN, and Fox News.
Maybe the liberal media will turn in their presidential kneepads.
118 or 157 visits by Shulman or more...was he doing overnight visits too? The arrogant pr!ck blames the Easter Bunny.
@ahandout How many taxpayers lost their homes due to the IRS doing videos.
That was Wall Street financial speculation. Get a life propagandist.
A lot less than the 1,200,000 homeowners that lost their homes to a GOP f*uckup:
Hey, did you hear about the Alberto Gonzolas Scandal? How about the Ashcroft scandal?
Then, of course, what's corruption without Citizen's United?
@Sue_N Who's Louie Gohmert?
@ahandout Good then when can we prosecute and arrest people for what the IRS did to churches in 2004?
@ahandout Let me know when anybody gives a hoot about what Tingles has to say.
@ahandout Again, you slobbering wingnuts cannot prove he was at the White House 118 times. Rich.
@ahandout Funny that he never says he was at the White House 118 times.
@mantisdragon91 Ted Cruz is a hemorrhoid without the personality.
Only if Texas finally keeps it's promise and secedes. Then it'll be a revolution a week.
@ahandout Liberal media? You should move to Iran. They just banned their state newspaper for 6 months. You could go to a parade every day and wave flags just like you do in Teabilly Land.
FOX news is librul.
Smoke more crack @ahandout.
@ahandout What liberal media? Liberal media only exists in the minds of brain dead lemmings like you.
@ahandout 5/23/13? Behind on your reading?
"Those 157 visits? Those are times he was ‘cleared’ to visit the White House. The logs only show he actually showed up 11 times."
I'm entertaining the possibility that @ahandout is paulejb's other poisonality.
Community Reinvestment Act was a plan designed to get people into houses who had no business being in houses 'cause they couldn't afford them. People that were never, ever gonna be able to pay back a loan were given loans. They were urged to go get loans. Now you might have heard predatory lenders in this and you might have heard that the banks were responsible, that the banks did this. The banks were under federal orders to do it.
Janet Reno, the attorney general for Clinton, threatened banks with investigations and punitive results if they didn't lend money to these people. That's where this started. During the Bush years, attempts were made to regulate this and fix it. And at every congressional hearing before the banking committee, when regulators were brought in to talk about solving it, the Democrats would swarm all over them and humiliate them and intimidate them and call them racists or whatever.
Because most of the beneficiaries in the subprime mortgage were minorities. Racial minorities. So, anyway, millions of people who could not afford bank loans were given them, and they went out and bought houses. This led to the utter crash of the housing market. People that couldn't afford houses were in them and not making payments. Therefore, the housing values plummeted. But the banks didn't just sit there and absorb the loss.
The banks, working with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, packaged these worthless mortgages into pools of worthless mortgages and called them mortgage-backed securities, and sold them -- under false premises, essentially. Just to pick a number for the purpose of illustration here, you pool a thousand mortgages together and you call it one mortgage-backed security. Then you go out and sell it. The eager buyer thinks he's got an income stream of a thousand people making monthly payments.
He's got worthless paper.
The banks foisted off worthless paper to people who didn't know what they were buying until they figured it out.
That bunch of people decided to repackage them as something else and sell them again, and all the while they were insured by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Worthless paper, worthless loans that everybody knew were worthless kept being passed down to other investors until finally there were no more saps left to buy them and that's when the crash happened and that is the Cliffs Notes version of what happened. That's your subprime mortgage problem, right there. And it shoulda never happened. People that can't afford to pay back a loan should never get a loan.
Isn't there a registry of everyone who entered the White House? I assume that's where the 118 stat comes from.
That's because @ahandout yanked.that fresh little puppy right out of his own azz.
He likes fisting it seems.
@forgottenlord @La_Randy According to the White House log book he made 11 visits during his tenure at the IRS during the questioned (Obama) administration. He was approved for many more visits but did not show up.
Of course his visits during the Bush administration are now being used against the current president in an effort by grifters trying to manufacture a scandal that does not exist.
Perhaps he didn't challenge it because he has no idea how many times he was at the White House.
What stupid did you consult for that bit of idiotic "reasoning"?
You're going to have to compile a "Memorable Quotes", sacred.
It would be priceless.
"Maybe you should not support known liars in the future."
And maybe you should stop supporting liars in the present, @ahandout
@Paul,nnto @ahandout All you have to do is watch the testimony. I posted it here. You can see the smarmy Shulman being reminded he's under oath, and being asked at least four times why he visited the White House 118 times (now it has grown to 157-59 times). Maybe he felt like he was getting away cheap, since we didn't know about the other 40 visits.
What is definitely known about the scum Shulman is that he will lie to and mislead Congress; he's already done it.
Maybe you should not support known liars in the future.
@Paul,nnto If Papa Bear says it, that makes it true.
Bill O'Reilly on Thursday called them the "smoking gun" and demanded of Shulman, "You must explain under oath what you were doing at the White House on 157 separate occasions." His statement built on a Daily Caller story, "IRS's Shulman had more public White House visits than any Cabinet member."
Noted. Recalled from memory. I still wonder, though. It must be a very incriminating list of participants.
Maybe so incriminating as to actually be scandalous in the real sense of the word?
