All republicans must always associate their democrat opponents with Obamacare, the border, the economy...EVERYTHING. The Democrat party is not a political party anymore as much as it is the instrument of the destruction of this country.

Is the IRS Lying?

Is the IRS lying? To quote a dishonorable Secretary of State... "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE??" Since we have a feckless Congress, and worse, a manipulative progressive Republican establishment intent on maintaining the progressive-Establishment cabal against the free citizenry, the response is entirely appropriate.
I was appalled by Thomas' ignorance of this very fact, especially as I watch Cochran enlist the Extablishment GOP work in conjunction with the Democrat party in Mississippi to get votes (particularly from African American "conservative" voters...right!!) that would most probably be illegal (though pragmatically impossible to prove or enforce). When the leadership of a party works to undermine the (small d) democratic process of a significant number of its members, that leadership is no more representative of its party than that of its opponent. For all intents and purposes, if a republican is not a conservative, Tea Party constitutionalist, then he is a Republican In Name Only (RINO), and is just as bad as a socialist progressive Democrat (redundancies intended).
It will be interesting to see how they juxtapose their overtly atheist stance with that of black churches, as well as Latino-centric Catholic Churches, in trying to woo the voters. Unless far less black individuals become religious, as well as Latino's, there will be a very difficult balancing act to make. Of course, rationality is just as detrimental to Democrat Party policies as is their church policy, so it most probably won't matter anyhoos.

OK, campers. Lesson in political corruption, media reporting, and party affiliation. When a Democrat has a scandal, it gets buried unless it's so bad it can't be ignored. When a republican has a scandal, it's trumpeted right away. When the media can CREATE a scandal out of thin air for a republican, they will do it as well. Unfortunately, when such a large amount of democrats have scandals that it can't possibly be ignored, the media uses a technique similar to the "Friday afternoon document dump," in which news is disseminated at the least harmful reactive time of the week. In the case of major political scandals, though, which is not easy to do, the trick is to determine the most effective times to report the information. The bottom line is that the democratic scandals have to be dealt with at the lowest ebb of the news cycle in an election year, which is during the Jan-April period. Conversely, to maximize the effect of the republicans, it has to be done at the highest ebb, which is the time period directly before the election (October surprise). In this case, the reason you see as many Democratic scandals now, is that Holder Justice Dept. wants them to be out of the way, so when September rolls around, they can start to roll out the republican scandals (manufactured or not). In short, the dems are clearing up their huge problems now, in the slowest news cycle of the year, which will allow there reporters to wordsmith around many of the issues that would mar the democratic chances. In addition, they will work with the Holder JD to craft the maximum damage they can apply to republicans, during the crucial October prior to the election, and if they have taken care of all the democrat problems by summer, there will only be knowledge of republican scandals come time to pull the lever.

Basically, Steve, you are saying that the Republican Party can never win at issues that defines itself as a party. That is the only conclusion I can ascertain.
One of the most eerie segues I've ever experienced was when my wife and I were watching Atlas Shrugged 2 on TV. There was a segment where Sean Hannity and Juan Williams played their respective characters in the Atlas Shrugged universe. They were discussing the Dog eat Dog rule and Directive 10-289, which forbid businesses to hire, fire, give raises, or demote people. At that time, the doorbell rang. I had thought I hit the mute button, but I actually pressed the stop button, so the tv turned to my TV station, which happened to be set on Fox News...which in turn happened to be during the Hannity show...which in turn happened during a panel discussion with Hannity and Juan Williams discussing employer mandates on Obamacare! It was as if I had not turned off the movie at all! I wish I had Tivo'd (is that so last decade?) the Hannity show so I could extrapolate both segments. It was eerie, to say the least.
