Happy Tax Day: RNC Files Lawsuit Against IRS For ‘Illegal Stonewalling’ Of Scandal Documents

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Republican National Committee, just in time for Tax Day, is filing a lawsuit against the IRS over what it calls “illegal stonewalling” of its request for documents related to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. 

  The RNC called the agency’s refusal so far to produce the documents “unacceptable and inexcusable.” 

” We’re filing this suit because the Obama administration has a responsibility to be transparent and accountable to the American people. The IRS has a legal obligation to answer our inquiry for these records,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “If the IRS and the Obama administration don’t have anything to hide, why not answer the request?” “

” Vice President Joe Biden interrupted Paul Ryan 82 times in a 90-minute debate with rival Paul Ryan, while CNN reported that women preferred Ryan.”

A deeper bench ? Hah! That’s funny.

“Conventional warfare: Why Democrats won “

  “Or maybe it’s because
Democrats were simply blessed with a deeper bench of political athletes in 2012. But whatever the reason, Republicans were lapped by their rivals and may ultimately
pay in November for botching Mitt
Romney’s debut.”

” Clint Eastwood stumping for Mitt Romney suggests shift in Hollywood’s political paradigm, experts say”

“Hollywood has long been considered an overwhelmingly liberal community, but given Clint Eastwood’s “surprise” blockbuster appearance in support of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney
this week – are the tables starting to
turn?”

” Why Eastwood? Look at the map “

” As I mentioned in my last post, I missed part of the line-up last night. I got back just in time to see Clint Eastwood offer up one more “Make my day,” and then watch the deluge of criticism roll across Twitter. It continues today at Time Magazine , where Michael Grunwald calls it a
“train wreck,” and goes a little Chris Matthewsfor good measure: “

“” ‘When someone isn’t doing
the job, we’ve got to let him go’

   “Clint Eastwood conducted a comical question- and-answer session with an empty chair —
which stood in for President Obama — at the Republican National Convention as he explained why he thinks “it’s time for somebody else to come and fix the problem.” “We own this country . . . We’re the best and we
should not ever forget that,” Eastwood said of the United States and Obama, before appealing
to voters of all political persuasions. “When someone isn’t doing the job, we’ve got to let [him] go.”

Laughter ensued …

” “What do you want me to tell Romney?” Eastwood said, looking at the Obama chair. “I can’t tell him to do that. He can’t do that to
himself. You’re absolutely crazy. You’re being as bad as Biden. Of course, we all know Biden is
the intellect of the Democratic Party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it.”

Make My Day

” Fox News: Source says Clint Eastwood to be RNC’s mystery speaker “

  “A Republican source says Clint
Eastwood will be Thursday night’s mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention, Fox News reports .

“GOP platform adopts Internet freedom plank

“Republicans vowed to fight against efforts that would give international or intergovernmental
organizations more control over the Internet in their party platform, approved on Tuesday. “We will resist any effort to shift control away from the successful multi-stakeholder approach of Internet governance and toward governance
by international or other intergovernmental organizations,” the platform reads.

Ann Romney Dazzles in Tampa

  “Romney spoke directly to a struggling America. She told them personal stories about her struggles with breast cancer, living with MS and raising five children. She spoke of the love her husband has given her through more than 40 years of marriage.

“I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours. Tonight I want to talk to you about love,” Romney said. “I want to talk to you about the deep love I have for a man I met at a dance.” “

“Love Bomb”

“Mia Love is speaking Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention. We’re organizing a “Love Bomb” for the day of her
speech. The Love Bomb is about bringing supporters together to make a big difference in this race by raising $50,000 for Mia.”

“4 Ways the GOP Convention Can Win it for Romney”

   ” The issues that voters care most about in poll after poll this cycle are the economy, job creation, and federal budget deficits that will
once again exceed a trillion dollars for the fourth year in a row. Providentially, the Republican ticket has an enormous level of credibility on these issues, with
Mitt Romney’s long track record of
private-sector success and Paul Ryan’s record of offering specific budgetary reform.

  Republicans have an opportunity to speak directly to voters on these issues, which will also highlight how the Obama campaign has avoided addressing them at all. “

GOP targets president on gas prices with #Obamaonempty Twitter campaign

“The White House recently earned
accolades for its #40dollars Twitter
campaign, launched to help push through
a payroll tax cut extension.
Republicans are now running their own
campaign, #Obamaonempty, urging
Twitter users across the country to snap
photos of prices at the gas pump when
they fill up.
It’s part of a concerted effort by the GOP
to pin increasing gas prices on President
Obama after he trashed Republicans and
defended his energy record last Thursday,
POLITICO’s Darren Goode reported
Tuesday.
The RNC Tweeted: “Today when you are at
the station, take a picture of the pump and
tweet us the photo- use the hashtag #
ObamaonEmpty. Great response so far!”
Twitterers from far and wide have sent in
pics: In Shreveport, La., regular hit $3.53 ,
in Virginia Beach it went to $3.63 , and in
New Port Richey, Fl., it was $3.75 ,
according to the submissions.
One Tweeter, @j_heals, pulled the two
campaigns together. Senate staffer Jeni
Healy Tweeted a photo showing a tank of
gas cost her $65.81 : “@RNC ugh @
whitehouse what $40 doesnt cover: A tank
of gas Payroll “tax break” wont help at the
gas pump #ObamaOnEmpty.”

As per the Politico .
