Sounds like ‘Barry Soetoro” Obama has dusted off the old playbook of “Tricky Dick” Nixon. Wonder why Barry didn’t name his re-election committee CREEP?
When will America wake up to the fact that our current administration is NOT interested in citizen rights. Only in bringing fourth their agenda of a New Socialist Society using every thing in their power to bring down those who are exposing that fact. . . . EDITOR

Recharged tea party demands justice in IRS targeting scandal

Four days in, and we still haven’t heard a single word from the President who bends our ears so relentlessly when he’s got an agenda to push, even as more high-profile commentators – most recently George Will, on ABC’s This Week – are reminding us that Nixon’s fall was partly due to just this sort of politicized abuse of Internal Revenue Service power.
