Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) Says Obama Has “One of The Most Corrupt Administrations” Ever

 

US Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA), the incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says that the Obama Administration is one of the most corrupt, ever! The Democrat response was to criticize Issa for his partisan tone. That’s priceless, after what the 111th Nancy Pelosi led Democrat Congress just did in raising the partisan bar to new unprecedented levels.

Video Hat Tip: American Power

Rep. Darrell Issa(R-Calif.), the incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was bullish in laying out his agenda for the new Congress with Republicans in control of the House.

Issa, who as chairman will have subpoena power, said he will seek to ferret out waste across the federal bureaucracy. While he used fiery rhetoric in describing the Obama administration in a series of television interviews Sunday, he said he will focus on wasteful spending, not the prosecution of White House officials.

Asked on “Fox News Sunday” about reports that the White House is staffing up on lawyers to prepare for his oversight hearings, Issa said: “They’re going to need more accountants.

What, an administration based on Chicago-style politics corrupt, well if the shoe fits. What is the White House’s response … hire more lawyers of course.  The reason for the investigations is oversight, don’t we really need accounts to see where the tax payer dollars have gone, not attorneys who will simply obstruct what happened?

      Where’s the news? Obama hired corrupt tax cheaters. Then he set up over a $Trillion in slush funds. Did we really think all of it would go where we were told it would?

      Er… yeah. Well, when millions of WH emails go missing as they did under Bush, or secret agents are outed to punish people for calling the WH on how they fudged the evidence to take the country to war, or lied about not torturing people, call me.

      Not sure how GOP can possibly stare at reality and see something totally different, but hey… at least they have active imaginations.

      Oh Johnny boy how well you tout the party line. Now, let’s get down to facts:

      14 Trillion in debt and still climbing
      Timmy Tax Cheat Geither as Secretary of the Treasury
      Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s Assistant Deputy Secretary – Man boy love
      Shovel ready jobs – Oh, wow, there is no such thing
      Closing Gitmo – Still open!
      Obama claims he stopped Iraqi war – Oops, it was Bush who signed the deal AND millions of US troops still there
      Obama: “We have to punish our enemies”
      ObamaCare – passed so we can see what’s in it! Not read by one single member voting for it!
      Bailouts of Banks and Wall Street
      Goldman Sachs Chairmen put in charge of the Federal Reserve!
      Millions of unemployed Americans
      Promises $821 Billion stimulus will keep unemployment at 8% of lower – unemployment raises to 10%. The only reason it’s fallen is because of the number of unemployed who have run out of benefits or fallen off the rolls due to discouragement
      300 million claimed jobs saved or created – disappeared months later, fudged figures on the website including those employed for less than 1 week
      Lies, lies and more lies but Johnny is stupid enough to still sing the Obama song of hope and change. Most of us are totally out of change and have lost hope.

      INTEGRITY is not based upon one’s success, but on HOW they achieved their success … and, what they do with the power once they’ve acquired it. Apparently, the AMBITIOUS Obamas believe that the ends justify the means. After spending 20 years in Jeremiah Wright’s anti-American church, Barack assumed his senatorial position not through democracy, but by having his opponent disqualified for a minor infraction. He then wasted time in the senate, voting present 130 times. To get elected, Barack made empty promises about reform and transparency, while he threw long time supporters under the bus. Ambitious Michelle, used Barack’s clout to triple her income at a Chicago hospital, for a B.S. job … and, now that they have the power, they have no respect for the hard earned money of the American tax payers, as they redistribute our wealth, limit our freedoms, and indulge in a lavish lifestyle. In addition, facts about Barack’s origins, affiliations, education, and qualifications are quite murky … and, any attempt to challenge or clarify these facts, are met with opposition and contempt.

      Should be fun to watch the attacks on Issa.

    7. johndao on January 3rd, 2011 4:11 pm

      What a joke.

      Democrats couldn’t bring themselves to investigate the lies that led us into war and the deaths of thousands of our people, not to mention civilians. They could not be bothered to properly investigate what happened after the administration confirmed the identity of a covert CIA agent. They certainly didn’t investigate the instructions given to lawyers who said that it was ok for the Bush administration to torture detainees, or hold American citizens for years without access to a lawyer or charge. They didn’t investigate the relationship between the administration and Enron, or Haliburton, or Blackwater, even after Blackwater stood accused of mass murder, rape, and more. Republicans however will gleefully ‘investigate’ health care reform, and have already been agog with talk of impeachment. I wish I knew where to start on this; it’s disgusting. President before Bush impeached over a bj. President Bush lied us into a war, suspending habeas corpus and many other civil rights, and not even a whimper from these so-called patriots. If you’re so into your damn civil liberties (read upset about the TSA), investigate warrantless wiretapping, torture, wars based on lies, citizens in jail without charge or attorney. Of course it’ll never happen, because the current set of tea party hypocrites only care about civil rights if they think Obama is taking them away. I thought we handed them all over to Bush in a post 9/11 orgy anyway.

      SM: You mean investigations into tbe war that Democrats also voted for? Its nice to be a Monday morning QB. Slick Willy was impeached over lting to federal inestigators and perjury. Who sounds like a homer?

      howad-

      To clarify when you speak of his election to the Senate you are referring to the Illinois Senate, not the federal one.

      Also, the “minor infraction” you speak of is that over 2/3 of the signatures of his primary opponent’s petition were found to be invalid; if that is minor to you then I guess that’s your opinion. He went on to win the general election (though one could argue whoever had a “D” next to their name was going to win it).

      When all you know how to do is related to work of lawyers, then that is what you will hire.

      I hope Issa really finds out where some of this stimulus slush fund money went. It may be in some Democrat fund in an off-shore or Swiss bank.

      Lawyers can go to jail too.

    10. Scott on January 4th, 2011 7:45 am

      Oh wittle johnny…

      Oh boy…we tortured terrorists that was proven SAVED LIVES. These terrorists are not human. Anybody who would load themselves with bombs and blow up and kill innocent people are not deserving of human rights. It’s wussies like you who cry and moan about torturing these people…but I bet you would change your tune if it involved someone you loved…but then again libtards have no love in their heart.

      Where has it been proven that information was fudged? False! It was ‘bad’ information; that Britian also used as did other countries…but then again libtards spin the truth.

      Then again, I’m a believer that Saddamm did have WMD’s and that he moved them before we invaded.

      Isn’t it funny how people, mostly libtard truthers who will question government information but then again hold the 9-11 Commission Report as truth when that report was done by highly ranking GOVERNMENT officials.

      Reality = $14 T DEBT
      Reality = our young children will have to pay for this….

      #2, who said Bush was a saint? The point is the most corrupt admin, not the only corrupt admin.

      #5, Right on! as well as #1,3,4,6, and 7.

    12. Rusty Bridges on January 4th, 2011 7:51 am

      …and 10!

    13. super dave on January 4th, 2011 8:00 am

      sorry john: nobody is buying your democrat propaganda evidently thought up as you were on the toilet dropping a few obamas.

    14. Rusty Bridges on January 4th, 2011 8:01 am

      Saddam regime was a weapon of mass destruction. He was threatening another invasion of Kuwait. He threw out UN nuke inspectors so he could build nuclear weapons so he would not be stopped this time. Bush stopped that from happening. Why don’t the libtards get it? They are letting Iran do the same thing. We had a chance to help the people of Iran throw out the radical gov’t when the took to the street, but Obama sat on his hands. That was his bay of pigs. He should go down in history as the most tepid president ever.

    15. Scott on January 4th, 2011 1:22 pm

      It’s like libtards know EVERYTHING. There are things that happen in our government that the only American people only know half of…

      Listen…look at a map and it’s quite glaring why we are in Iraq and Afghanistan? I’ve give libtards first choice?

      Simply put…it’s IRAN and it’s ALWAYS been about IRAN. Whose the biggest thorn in our side and is massively growing nuclear weapons? IRAN!

    16. Scott on January 4th, 2011 1:24 pm

      Hey johnboy – yet all these illegal wire tappings, etc have been VAMPED UP by Obama…do some research before reading your emailed liberal talking points from MOVEON.ORG.

    17. Greg on January 4th, 2011 4:04 pm

      #15,
      Scott – are you saying that Bush got America into two wars that has depleted our national treasure, with our dead and wounded service members, all so we could eventually attack Iran? That would be the most sinister reason I’ve heard for starting these wars.

      Forget Bush lied about WMD, and all other possible reasons; he did this as prelude to a major yet-to-be started war in Iran.

      This is brilliant!
      _________________
      SM: You are monday morning QB Greg. Sorry, but every one thought he had WMD, not just W. So the French, Saudi’s, Israili’s and all other world inteligence agencies lied too? It was just Greg who knew Saddam had no WMD’s. See you are brilliant. You knew about Tootsie Pops and WMD’s.

      But I guess you would rather have Saddam commit genocide, murder and rape. But then again, you folks said it was a wat for oil. Where is that oil Greg as the cost keeps rising.

      There is no arguing or pointing out the facts to Libtards. They just don’t want to hear it. Just laugh and move on as they live in a complete state of denial.

      Maybe the Exectuve Producers of the A&E Network should create an INTERVENTION program for Libtards? Just like with drugs, odds are the majority will relapse completely, but every once in a while- one or two make it to the end of rehabilitation and actually see the light.

    19. Greg on January 5th, 2011 12:56 am

      #18,

      I’m a very strong believer in facts, like some of the other comment posters on this blog.

      Who do you suggest decides what is or isn’t a fact?

      How about finding someone who can decide if a post even attempts to use facts, or reasonable language, rather than something that is no more than hot air?

      Will you volunteer?

    20. Scott on January 5th, 2011 7:40 am

      LOL…depleted our national treasure? Which treasure do you speak of? Our national treasure was already being depleted but we just didn’t know it yet…when Clinton signed the Community Investment Act (“EVERYONE should own a home”)along with his buddies Chris Dodd and Barney Frank; and along with the creation of Fannie and Freddie.

      Geez and guess what..Fannie just bailed out Bank of America with MORE CASH.

      Yeah..Greg..where’s the oil.

      Greggie boy…did you know that oil prices are tied to the value of our dollar…Your boy Obama just keeps printing money which DEVALUES our dollar…which in turn is why our gas prices are at ridiculous levels again.

      I never said anything of the sorts that we are going to attack Iran. My 6 year old has better reading comprehension than you do!

      But you have your head buried in the sand if you don’t think Iran is developing LONG RANGE nuclear weapons against the mandates by the U.N. Those people who run that country are LUNATICS and they could do serious damage to our allies if they get a weapon; possibly even reaching our EAST COAST.

      I think having a few more bases around does not hurt in the event we need to take action.

      See Greg…you are the typical example of the wussification of American…the nannie state. You think everything is all roses; that there arent serious NATIONAL SECURITY matters; even as far away as the middle east…gasp?!?

      Tool!

    21. Dolf on January 5th, 2011 8:00 am

      always nice to see an elected official putting the USA on the same list as North Korea, Zimbadwe, Kenia.

      scott…that trillion dollar defict happened under Bush his watch.
      you may denie it and start swearing, but doesn’t alter the facts.

      Bush:
      Taxcuts to upperclass (guess were almost every member of congress fits in (why would you stop a taxcut that benifits you))
      The 9/11 attacks
      Afghanistan war (still waging)
      Iraq war
      Katrina
      Financial meltdown

      even with the fuzzy Bush accounting it didn’t add up.

    22. Dolf on January 5th, 2011 10:22 am

      lol scott on reading comprehension

      good joke

      good to hear your kid is learning it, maybe he can teach you scott?
