TEA Party is gathering tomorrow in Washington to protest and find out what is going on. They are demanding tax status or they will sue.

Good going Obama for making your so called "enemies" stronger than ever.

Do you honestly think that Obama put the IRS up to this? Honest question.

Their approval numbers were in the single digits, I doubt this will make a difference.

Obama won his second term he doesn't care anymore. The whole IRS thing was to suppress them during the election.

I don't have enough information to know if Obama is responsible for the IRS/Tea Party issue but I will agree that the Tea Party (and other Conservative groups) will be empowered by it.

[and if he is responsible, then that is extremely disappointing]

If their approval ratings double, which I doubt, they are at 16% approval rating.

If this is as strong as they ever been, then they are doomed.

They released the names of people who gave to conservative issues. Then those people could be harassed, nice huh?

Now the IRS is going to be in control of our health issues with Obamacare and they can see all your secret health problems and do what? Release them to who? Keep healthcare from who? Scary is right.
