Wrong, Mr. Ruben. It wasn’t so much about what the Obama IRS did, but what the Obama IRS did NOT do. Obama's IRS delayed processing of applications for conservative-leaning groups, but did NOT delay processing of applications from similar liberal-leaning groups. But you knew that, didn’t you. Just more lies from a typical lib.

From USA Today: “WASHINGTON -- In the 27 months that the Internal Revenue Service put a hold on all Tea Party applications for non-profit status, it approved applications from similar liberal groups, a USA TODAY review of IRS data shows.

“As applications from conservative groups sat in limbo, groups with obviously liberal names were approved in as little as nine months. With names including words like "Progress" or "Progressive," these groups applied for the same tax status and were engaged in the same kinds of activities as the conservative groups.”

"Nor would any reasonable person give such privileged tax treatment to Organizing for America, the PAC created to re-elect President Obama".

Organizing for America, is actually a questionable division of the DNC and is not subject to any IRS regulation. Very shady in my opinion. The liberals also have an organization called Organizing for Action, formed to promote Obummer after his reelection. It enjoys a tax exempt status as a 501(c)(4). They straight out promote Obama by name. The conservatives promote an ideology. Big difference. Now, if the answer as to why the IRS took so long to neither approve or disapprove the applications was as simple as the IRS being overwhelmed as the writer suggests, then why wouldn't those fine Americans at the IRS just say that. Instead, they plead the fifth or they can't remember anything. Why waste your time trying to defend Liars,Idiots and the REAL traitors against the American people.

Dr. Ruben may be the least informed person ever to write an op-ed for this newspaper, if this column and his anti-gun pieces are any indication.

Boy it took you lying libs long enough to make up the “WAAAA! The Obama IRS targeted us too” lie-whine...

So you actually think Americans are STUPID enough to believe Obama’s IRS targeted “progressive” groups, too? And you think exposing even MORE Obama Administration crime will make Barry Brainless look BETTER?

You “progressives” are even dumber than we thought. LOL
