Is the Republican Party a hate group? As reported before, a scandal is presumptive until the suspicious activity is proven. In the event of presidential scandals and the Obama administration, there may be as much suspicion about the accusers as there is about the accused.
The President is going about his business, doing the people’s work, while Congress is not. They are not getting immigration reform passed. They let gun control slip from grasp against the wishes of 90% of Americans. They are an affront to equality when it comes to gender bias.
Now there are four things that fall into the category of prospective scandals.
2. AP journalist wiretapping
3. IRS conservative group targeting
4. Eric Holder perjury
Benghazi was a security error where a breach was committed by error of omission. Sufficient security was omitted from protecting State Department personnel in Libya, a very dangerous place. It was omitted for at least two reasons: 1) Congress did not approve Hillary Clinton’s request for more security, and 2) Mrs. Clinton did not authorize higher security when it was requested.
The CIA botched information that fed the State Department reporting about the incident. As a result, Susan Rice was left holding a bag of talking points that were behind developing facts that demonstrated al-Qaeda terrorists were behind the attack.
Congressman Darrell Issa piled on to exploit the situation, making matters worse, instead of helping.
The AP wiretapping decision was allegedly for reasons of National Security and to nail leakers inside the administration. It was not to impede First Amendment free speech rights. It was not to nail whistleblowers, it was to stop the leaks.
Along the way, Congressman Darrell Issa chose to beat up Attorney General Eric Holder whom the GOP hate. If there is a scandal, it is that the Republican Party has become a hate group.
Therefore, the IRS investigating the formation of conservative backed hate groups may be perfectly acceptable.
If Eric Holder perjured himself, he may have done it on purpose so that he can return to private life.

President Obama’s approval ratings have increased since a trio of controversies involving his administration began dominating the news cycle.
Fifty percent of those surveyed in Gallup’s three-day tracking poll released Wednesday say they approve of the job the president is doing, compared to 43 percent who said they disapprove.
