Yet liberals are telling us it's no big deal. Now we know that those same liberals howled about Nixon's unsuccessful attempts to use the IRS against his enemies so we know that liberals believe the IRS shouldn't be used against liberals. The only conclusion is that liberals have a double standard; it's ok to use the IRS against conservatives but not against liberals.
But that's no surprise. If the unemployment rate had been above 8% under Bush we'd have heard no end of it but under Obama it's an economic recovery.
To liberals the ends, giving liberals power over everyone else's lives, justify the means.
