I'm quite bothered by how conservatives have blatantly abused the 501 tax-exempt status law and question how IRS scrutiny of such obvious abuses are causing such a ruckus on the right. Glenn Beck's clearly partisan group got this status - how can that be?!! The proliferation, following Citizen's United, of clearly partisan, NON "social welfare" groups pursuing tax-exempt status should be investigated and this has primarily been done by right wing groups. The only "scandal" here is on the part of the Tea Party organizations.

Much like the previous two presidents, this one seems destined to become pure political poison by the time his term is up. As happened to his predecessors, fellow party members won't want him anywhere near their campaigns.

The republicans repeated attempts to creae scandals where there are non have failed. n I can't wait to see what they try next. How about douing the job they were sent to congress todo. Have mistakes been made? Yes No administration is perfect and Obama has done everything he can to fix abuses and problems as they arise. Compared to the Bush administation the Obama administration is a breath of fresh air. 9/11, started 2 wars off the books, no weapons of mass destruction, throwing the country into a depression, the financial bailout and housing market collapse are just a few of the Bush accomplishments. I'll take Obama any day.

Obama agenda marches on - That says it all. Obama is not a leader, he has an agenda, to divide Americans. Pit rich VS poor. We have heard him talk about job creation for 5 years. He lied about how much Obamacare would cost, to the point even Democrats are saying.... really, how much?? At least now with what's coming out about Benghazi seals the fate of any sane person voting for HC.

Yes, Obama's goal of flooding this country with welfare class hispanics is moving through the Senate right now. Why has the Senate turned its back on the country?

The only reason Obama might get away with this is that the media is going to overlook the importance of what is happening. From Benghazi to the IRS to the Feds illegally going after press connections, many laws have been broken and many lies have been told. Government workers have a lot of power in their hands. They need to be held to highest standards of conduct. Failure to do so promotes these abuses of power. Those responsible need to do some jail time. Obama, himself, he is simply a disgrace.

Big government leads to corruption. The president is bent on making America an 3rd world country. But wait, it won't happen during his term, it will happen after he leaves office so he can wash his hands of it.

Proving only that the annointed one remains coddled by the left. Contrary to what markoakes may think, the right does not have to create scandal...Barry is doing fine without their help....but, as I said, the blind left would not dream of holding their lord accountable. The big difference with a dem scandal is that the press isn't willing to pounce like it would on a GOP issue. The right has to speak loudly to promote reason.

"At least now with what's coming out about Benghazi seals the fate of any sane person voting for HC." -- precisely! It's now been proven that the republicans on the House Intel Committee fabricated classified documents and fed them to multiple media outlets in an attempt to implicate the current president and future president in a non-existent coverup. Republicans have proven they cannot be trusted with classified information, let alone to lead this country. Now more than ever, 2016 is a lock for HRC. I'm just waiting for all of the 'patriotic' teapublicans to condemn the actions by the republicans who engineered this travesty.

Obama is doing a good job of making the case for conservatism. When even the most liberal members of the press are up-in-arms, you know there's a problem with this president's agenda. Why is he lying about Benghazi? Why is he tapping press phone records? Why is the IRS targetting Obama's political foes? The "culture of corruption" hens have come home to roost.
