Well, your lies have fooled 70% of Americans. Thanks conservatives! Making America dumber by the second! This is like a guy who dated 40 women in his 20's and looking back at age 30 and going: "Oh my, they were all blondes! What the heck. What does that say about me? I must be a ...a...a..Blondist?!.?" He (the IRS) never set out to only date (scrutinize) just blondes (tea party groups). Those were just the ones that he (the IRS) found appealing (questionable.) Look at the facts. It's all right there. No one set out to JUST scrutinize/target tea party groups. They just fell into the pattern of questionable submissions. Done. Close the story. Move on? Not likely. Conservatives: Making America dumber by the second!

When senior IRS officials first admitted to unfair and inappropriate targeting of conservative groups, they claimed the targeting was carried out by a few rogue agents in a Cincinnati office. Weeks and mounds of evidence to the contrary later, a new Rasmussen Report shows 70 percent of Americans believe the targeting of tea party groups came from Washington D.C. and the White House.

Only 17% believe that the IRS abuse was the result of low-level employees at the Cincinnati office. Seventy percent (70%) believe the IRS decision to target conservative groups was made in Washington, an increase...
