Wrapped in the Flag : The Right’s Scandal Hypocrisy Reading the news this morning reminds me of the utter hypocrisy of the right wing (and the whole GOP). In this piece, Michael Tomasky talks about the republican response to scandal. In part, he says, "
It’s pretty rich, isn’t it, to see conservatives, not so long ago such ferocious guardians of presidential prerogative, suddenly acting as if they’d all interned at Common Cause when they were in college and thumping their chests about presidential transparency? I bet we could count on one hand—or more likely, on no hands—the number of conservative commentators who were insisting that the Bush White House should come clean about what Scooter Libby did in relation to the Valerie Plame matter. But now, suddenly, Barack Obama must come clean on all particulars, or he’s, you guessed it, the dreaded Nixon! Of course, Nixon wasn’t always the dreaded Nixon, because to the conservatives of the early 1970s who agreed 110 percent with Tricky Dick’s claims of executive privilege, he was the heroic, stalwart Nixon. It’s only when a Democrat is in, apparently, that democracy itself is on the line."
"Can you imagine what might have happened if the Democratic-controlled House in 2007 had decided to go back and hold repeated hearings on, and subpoena documents relating to, Abu Ghraib or Gitmo or torture or even Katrina preparations? I can promise you that at the very least we’d have seen the same kind of bureaucratic ass-covering we’ve seen in the Benghazi emails."
"Except that we wouldn’t have seen that, because the Bush administration, under the baleful baton of Dick Cheney, would have refused to answer any such subpoenas, as it in fact repeatedly did. And the same pundits now screaming their heads off for transparency would have been, and in a lot of cases were, defending the Cheney position with their last, panting, dishonest breaths." 1 hour ago - View -

Wrapped in the Flag : We're subsidizing the group that wants more GOP obstruction. This morning I'm so disgusted with the right wing I can hardly contain my anger. Here's the Heritage Foundation telling their GOP puppets to "avoid working on any legislation that could take the focus off of the Obama Administration."
So, the Heritage Foundation wants to make sure that the GOP keeps the media focused on scandals and avoid allowing anything to happen that might actually help the country. The most maddening part of this is the fact that Heritage Action (the arm of the Foundation sending this crap to the HIll) is a registered 501(c)(4) organization.
"So, taxpayers are subsidizing the very organization that's telling our lawmakers not to do their job. As if Republicans in Congress ever needed an excuse to do nothing. The fact is, while the GOP obsesses about so-called scandal, the pressing issues facing our nation are being ignored. " 2 hours ago - View -
Mike Huckabee : Pundits on the left are already test-marketing an excuse for the IRS targeting conservative groups. They’re arguing that after the Citizens United decision, shady groups that wanted to influence the election unduly were formed as tax-exempt organizations. Since, in their fantasies, all the suspicious ones were conservative, it makes perfect sense that the IRS would give extra scrutiny to groups with conservative terms like “tea party” in their names. Hey, they’re just trying to keep everyone ethical, right?
Well, how, exactly, were they doing that? The Richmond, Virginia, Tea Party can tell you how it was done unto them. They applied for tax exempt status, filled out a form and provided over 500 pages of documents. Then they sat around waiting for two years. Finally, they received a questionnaire from the IRS with 55 more questions. Just little non-intrusive demands, like: name all of your donors, grantors and volunteers. List how much money they gave. Describe, in detail, exactly what you used the money for. List the names of all your board members. Provide the IRS with copies of the parts of your website that only members can access. There were about 50 more, but you get the idea. Like I have said before, firing the IRS chief isn't enough. It is time to abolish the IRS. 2 hours ago - View -
