GOP SENATOR: Obama Must
Apologize For ´Absolutely Chilling´
IRS Targeting Of Tea Party Groups

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 5/12/2013 12:05:28 PM

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that the IRS´ admission of targeting various conservative groups for extra scrutiny was "absolutely chilling," and she called on President Barack Obama to apologize. "This is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government," Collins said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "It is absolutely chilling that the IRS was singling out conservative groups for extra review, and I think it´s very disappointing that the president hasn´t personally condemned this and spoken out."

Comments:
1) Apoligize
2) Resign

Barry´s biggest problem is that Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals" doesn´t tell him what to do when you get caught red handed.

The black caucus set the tone for the absolute disrespect of the TEA party.
Your aunt, your mother, perhaps your grandfather are members. Law abiding peaceful people who never before protested anything stood up to protest too high taxes and a bloated dishonest government and they were pilloried and called racist!
I demand an apology from the black caucus.

Collins has actually been pretty decent since her sidekick Snowe resigned. She´s not an outspoken person to begin with but she´s the kind of republican the left wants all of the republicans to be.So for her to speak out on this carries more clout than it appears..

I also like the Senator from NH, who held her own during the gun debate. She´d make a nice VP pick 2016. In fact,I wish Romney would have picked her this time. At least it would have knocked down the war on women crap,some.

Auditing pro Israel groups is really shameful and it shows Obama is anti-Israel,its just too bad a lot of American jews can´t seem to figure this out,unless they´ve been promised a seat at the table when the government overthrow happens.

The administration is trying to blame low level IRS employees. How do low level employees have this much power? If they do have this power than there is no need for the high level employees. Cut them out. Cover ups for Benghazi, Fast & Furious and IRS targeting conservative groups are all more serious than Whitewater. Where are the award winning investigative reporters?

This white-glove, mamby-pamby response to the esteemed president is garbage. You, Susan Collins, don´t know what outrage is! To you, outrage means to form another committee or to use passive words like "distrust, and disappointing."

Americans are livid, truly outraged and recent revelations have confirmed what we knew all along about the corruption and collusion in government. President of CBS and ABC in the White House pocket; reporters and the media in the tank; all willingly complicit in the actions and coverups of obama.

I keep thinking about the PJMedia headline, "first they came for the Tea Party, and then they came for the Jews´.

Any living American who remembers the history of WWII should be scared out of their pj´s with this abuse of power move.

I blame the Iranian born, Chicago reared, ValJar. Time to list all her "revenge" quotes and make her accountable for her part in this chilling of Free Speech. A serious offense in a Representative Republic.

The o. family needs to dump her immediately, no matter how "special" her relationship is with them.

I would welcome Obama resigning, but I´m more in favor of his well-deserved impeachment. Future Presidents cannot use the Obama years as a precedent in order to get by with unconstitutional behavior just because Obama did.

The Supreme Court worries me because they turned a blind eye to his ineligibility to be POTUS. The Constitution has no Article, Clause, or Amendment which states that a person should be given special treatment(by ignoring the eligibility requirements) because of the color of his/her skin.

Until Obama can prove that his real father is an American citizen (no matter how embarrassing that might be to him), he should be removed from office. Since that´s not going to happen, there are so many instances of unconstitutional behavior during the past 5 years that Articles of Impeachment should have been issued already.

Glad to see that Senator Collins is speaking out, but I agree with above posters that Obama needs to do more than apologize. He would probably cross his fingers behind his back, since he wouldn´t mean it.

Several years ago I was closing on a second home. The seller had gotten himself in trouble with the IRS and their agent was there to get the fed´s share. I made the mistake of jokingly telling the agent not to give the money to Obama and that he might just waste it.

Two weeks later I got an audit letter. Never been audited before in fifty years of filing my return. Coincidence? I doubt it.

Anyone who is waiting for a president with no birth certificate, an Indonesian passport and s stolen social security number to do the right thing, has a long wait in store. And anyone who is waiting for the people who voted for him to regret doing so is also in for a long wait. They´re all Democrats and it´s how they roll.

While i am not a member of any TEA Party group or any other group, for that matter, i have been annoyed and angered that so many Republicans and even some purported "Conservatives" have bought the line of attacks against TEA Partiers, that they are radical or "right wing" or any number of other attacks designed to be as pejorative as possible.

All of this was going on while the OWSers ("Occupy Wall Streeters") were committing crimes, polluting, defiling, putrefying and otherwise dirtying up wherever they squatted, with little or no criticism.

Also very important, the IRS wanted the mailing lists, i guess the list of donors, of TEA Party groups. The intention is to chill support, by instilling fear in supporters.

This is exactly how totalitarian dictatorial regimes work. Usually they make these incursions on liberty step by step.

We must demand that Democrats --IF they believe in liberty and will uphold their Oath to defend and protect this Constitutional Republic-- also condemn the BO regime´s unlawful, duplicitous behavior... including the flagrant use of "executive orders" when Congress prevents him from doing what he wants.

I dunno, there are times I just don´t understand you guys. I think #5 and #10 have nailed it.

Senator Collins is about as liberal as you can be and still be a Republican. When she speaks out against Mr. Obama, it means a lot!

Of course, the more conservative types will call for impeachment or tar and feathers--none of which is going to happen--but for a lib to speak out like this is like a canary in a coal mine.

I like #23. At first I thought he was misspelling rogue but then realized that using the French word for red, rouge, the political ideology of the agents can be subtly described as well. Two birds with one stone as it were.

Kim Jong-un gets mobbed

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy.

Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
