    Is the number 426 more than a smidgen?

    President Obama in an interview a while back said there is not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS relating to the Lois Lerner targeting of Conservative groups...
    The question for Obama supporters is what do you consider a smidgen?
    Recent revelation has the IRS admits to 426 groups of TEA party and other conservative groups being targeted for extra scrutiny in applying for 501(c) status.

    Jack - In my mind, a smidgen is similar to a pinch of salt.  Both are amounts too small to really measure.

    Now most of us would know that 426 is a measurable amount and doesn't qualify as a "smidgen." 

    But we can all rest assured that this IRS scandal is really a dead issue and nobody will ever be held accountable.  Lois Learner is now enjoying life with her fat government retirement check rather than sitting in prison orange.

    Does anyone really think Lois Learner just decided to do this on her own?  I think she was following the orders from someone above her.  We will never know the truth.

    Yes, So What Is A "Smidgen"? That was the title of one of The Frog Prince's HPs  What ever happened to him?

    3 years later and now we find this out? (like we didn't know from the first!) And we still don't know exactly when the targeting stopped, and how broadly the tax agency drew its net when it went after nonprofits for unusual scrutiny. Another 3 years I guess until we get that information or more likely NEVER! And Lois Lerner, despite that we know her hard drive was purposely destroyed (Lerner's hard drive didn't simply "crash" on its own, but instead had physical damage), is free to live life to it's fullest with no fear of prosecution. Only in America. That's what Democrats mean when they say, "Make America Great again? It is great!" … d-n2033071

    All compliments of the Democrat Party who gave us award winning performances from BO, Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, John Koskinen and Hillary Clinton. I can't wait to see their next performances.

    426 is more than a smidgen, but slightly less than a sh*t load.
