I understand that Obama recently attempted to gain information on tea party candidates by illegal auditing. I presume this was solely for political slander purposes but I'd like to get some more info.
Also, I hear the FBI recently asked for all associated press records?

Show me one that proves that Obama was personally responsible for the IRS harassment of Tea Party groups.

Go on, I'll wait.

He appointed the head of the IRS. Like a captain of a ship, he is responsible for his subordinates actions.

Are you telling me he actually *hasn't* spent all his time playing golf and schmoozing with Hollywood types, as you people have been saying all along?

I'm still waiting for some proof of the OP's assertion that Obama directed, or even knew about, the IRS' actions against Tea Party non-profits.

The alleged harassment began in 2010, when the head of the IRS was still a Bush appointee.

So who's responsible: Obama for not getting rid of him sooner, or Bush for appointing him?
