Democrats aren’t blind—just devoted followers

"The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, said organizations that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status were singled out for additional reviews." [Today's Washington Post] Now, do you recall the comments Obama made at OSU’s graduation  a week ago about those who fear tyranny in government? And the IRS goes after patriot groups because they aren't leftists?

I was a Democrat when Nixon fell from grace and resigned. Watergate was a burglary; no one died. He did the honorable thing—something unknown in government today—to protect the reputation not of himself, or his party, but the office of the presidency.  I didn't know a single Republican who stood by him--they were ashamed that such disgrace had fallen on their guy. Not so with Democrats and Benghazi. I don't know a single Democrat who has abandoned their slavish devotion to Obama. It reminds me of abused wives/girlfriends who keep going back for more after they get out of the hospital and he's released from jail.

Well, no, if you followed my blog you'd know, but if Democrats had supported him after voting for the war, we'd probably have been out of there years ago. Meanwhile, it's 5 years out, and Obama has lost more than Bush.
