Let's go back to 2010 scared to death is what the Obama reelection effort was -- -- with the Tea Party did take -- over the house historical turn.
So they said let's -- Chicago style politics and destroy the Tea Party it was done with the media and it was done by individuals like the IRS.
Then there was offices and Ohio and they were scared to death about -- an Ohio.
There's dozens and dozens of Tea Party groups in Ohio so what they said it is we're gonna destroy the Tea Party by keeping them.
Tamp down with -- -- their political activities so instead of going out to register new voters the Tea Party they don't want responding to the IRS with page after page and so the four million fewer voters who voted for.
But Romney who didn't have voted for McCain four million last -- because they act tactic Tea Party they took away their ability to organize just like -- -- Committee to reelect the president was all about not national security but Obama's reelection security the IRS was all about.

About Ohio at all they were worried about it and it's.
On another -- -- -- who really don't they ever.
How to -- work that's not true about.

They actually see how he is dated debt now they were worried about death stuff they were doing dear game day turnout there are people they know they when they were not worried about the GO TI and -- and -- nobody's impressed.
Is that no I don't think nobody is getting CIA AI harassed because of Romney campaign was -- -- is -- -- -- any other did I have no I'm Larry as you know yeah you tell.
It's why they don't worry I'm not a war and the Center for American Progress and media matters during the bush years have edited that and other liberal groups were targeted.
To be intimidated.
By the IRS that you and your liberal friends wouldn't be screaming -- -- -- -- bush.

He wins the election and today at 530 they have they have the dumping the emails at 650 and it goes on TV.
That's why -- -- IRS well if we don't play until -- -- and that is why they aren't note that.
Is why this one is so -- is so it's such a disaster.
Because there are people who believe.
-- that it is -- Ohio was stolen.
There are people who believe that the that the government wants to come and take their guns there RP and obviously you know -- they are.
