    You're gonna say you don't believe it until you get proof.
    Fine ... what would it tell you if it's shown to be true?

    I'm not a member of the GOP; I'm simply objecting to character assassination based on charges dropped against an 18-year old who is about to turn 60. It's weak sauce.

    this is common knowledge, but if you have a few minutes, read this and then tell me if you would hire this guy, let alone have him lead a congressional investigation ...

    Nothing, I was in error for asking. All we need is whether the WH instigated or was aware of the targeting situation.

    Thank you for the link. Even in the bolding, you can see "allegations." It surely seems from this presentation that where there is smoke, there must be fire. Displaying a gun in a box seems more than a little thuggish.

    But the claims remain allegations. Why did voters elect Issa?

    Did you see the date 1972? Why do alleged events when he was 18 matter?

    heh heh ... Media Matters makes it sound like the press has been giving a pass to Issa like they've been doing to Obama for a decade now.

    Hey Bori ... wanna see some blasts from the Politico past? Memory Lane stuff?

    Yesterday, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan grilled the federal bureau’s boss asking basic details on the case, but Mueller supposedly hadn’t been briefed since the investigation began. What followed was an almost comedic exchange between a befuddled FBI director and an angry state Rep. posing some very uncomfortable questions..."<

    You can bury your head in the sand and think that Obama is going someplace; but he is not. He won the last election convincingly and he is our elected leader... deal with it.

    When with the RepubliCons finally stop living in the past, including thinking they can unwind the last election (or reverse ObamaCare), and actually develop a real vision for American and march TOWARD it. Sell a future and stop living in the past!
    Great. Perhaps that will put a stop to the George Bush stories or what Issa is alleged to have done when he was 18.
