    Issa says Obama administration is 'one of most corrupt'

    The Republican congressman who is taking over responsibility for congressional oversight called President Obama's administration "one of the most corrupt administrations" on Sunday and predicted that the investigations he is planning over the next two years could result in about $200 billion in savings for U.S. taxpayers.

    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.

    Obama... corrupt? Not telling the truth? Lying? backdoor deals? Chicago School? Alinsky School? Wright School? Closet Marxist? The Uniter? Messiah Obama?
    Naaaah. Can't be.

    ROTFLOL... Hopefully while working to get the REAL Numbers down, he'll nail two birds with one stone. My bet is that's the plan. Severe Collateral Damage.

    Even a big percentage of Democrats agree with this.

    But he's an excellent golfer and basketball player. Or at least he should be by now.

    apparently you believed it, though, when the Obama crowd said it about Bush
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Yep, I know it, you had to take a double check of that thanks banner didn't you....heh, heh....

    But you're right. I was just thinking I have heard this all before from every congressional member that takes charge of this committee. then nothing happens of any significant level.

    When Issa said yesterday that he wouldn't even seek prosecution for the Sestack issue, because he had learned that the Bush administration did it too, I nearly fell out of the truck.

    I call BS! Start prosecuting them.

    There should be investigations into any suspected wrong doing regardless of who, and going back as long as possible depending on how long the morons have been in office. But saying that, the investigations should only be started if there is evidence of wrong doing, not partisan bitching. We dont need another Ken Starr witch hunt.

    Re: Issa says Obama administration is 'one of most corrupt'

    I laughed when I came across that article. If people only knew the levels of corruption under the last administration did they'd realize that investigating...

    1. Impact of regulation on job creation

    2. Fannie/Freddie & the Foreclosure Crisis

    3. Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the failure to identify origins of the financial crisis

    4. Combating corruption in Afghanistan

    5. WikiLeaks

    6. FDA/Food & Drug Safety

    ...all amount to nothing.


    1. Impact of regulation on job creation - How do you investigation wrong-doing here since Congress, not the Obama Administration, makes the laws.

    2. Fannie/Freddie * the Foreclosure Crisis - started under Clinton, continued in earnest under GW. Bush. If anyone should be blamed for how out of control the housing crisis got it would be the GW Bush Administration. About the only thing the Obama Administration can be blamed for here is not placing Fannie and Freddie under some type of reform. But since both the Administration, HUD and the markets are still trying to sort out the mess, I doubt any partisan investigation will really get closer to the truth here.

    3. Origins of financial crisis - Goes with #2 above.

    4. Combating corruption in Afghanistan - Can it really be any worse than what transpired w/Iraq? Better start with the GW. Bush administration first.

    5. WikiLeaks - victim of circumstances; besides, this is more a DoD issue that an Obama White House issue.

    6. FDA/Food & Drug Safety - Scratching my head over this one. If we're talking about prescription drugs, how about looking into the unfunded portion of Medicare, Part-D first.

    Clearly, this is a partisan hack-job. The GOP (specifically Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.) is on a witch-hunt, turning over every rock he can find looking for whatever tidbit that turns up. Good Luck with that. It's the same tactic that was used against Clinton w/Ken Starr except at least there there was something to the infidelity rumors. I see nothing more going on here than politics as usual.

    Next...

    We have to start somewhere, and in the present is appropriate. Not only is there Sestack, but another from Colorado I believe. So, bring it, and let's see what Obama knew, and when he knew it.
