    I agree the Issa stuff is silly.... the only reason Bush still gets discussed is that people want to spend time ascribing blame for the economy and wars.... If you want a real discussion of blame, then he is fair game; but if you just want to solve problems, including the economy and don't need to blame anyone, there is no reason to talk about Bush.

    Of course your suggestion is a false equivalent as the tenor of much of the discussion is about how these investigations are going to bring Obama down, in essence, undo the last election in the form of a recall vote. Meanwhile the Cons have had more than 35 resolutions to repeal Obama care. There is big difference with discussing history (which is what gets talked about on this board) vs. spending time and money trying to undo history, which is what the Issa objective and 35+ house resolutions are attempting do to. If Congress wants to waste time and money investigating the Bush administration, I will be equivalently outraged.

    "As late as last week, the administration's still trying to say there's a few rogue agents in Cincinnati," Issa said on CNN. "When in fact
    the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington
    ."

    Sounds like Issa has made a determination here BEFORE the investigation is completed.
    Isn't that the indication?

    Actually no. The fact is Elijah Cummings wants the entire transcripts released from the IRS interviews because he claims the all the facts will come out. Issa refuses to do so. If you can't see that Issa is setting up the republican party for a major fail on this issue.......

    U.S. Senator Conrad Burns of Montana charged that CREW was "maliciously false" and "partisan hacks" in calling him corrupt in 2005. The Billings Gazette reported that CREW defended itself:[30]
    "We are progressive," said Naomi Seligman, the group's deputy director... "We do work within a larger progressive infrastructure." Seligman suggested her group is the progressive counterweight to Judicial Watch, a group from the right that calls itself "a non-profit, public interest law firm dedicated to fighting government corruption"... "We've gone after a fair number of Democrats, even in this study," Seligman said, [and Burns] "should be answering the charges, not slinging charges."

    The funny part is that while you were trying to be sarcastic you were actually reinforcing the fact that the MSM wanted Obama and gave him a pass on his past.
    Go ahead, find the absolute worst coverage of Obama's relationships with those guys by a MSM outlet.
    As soon as Obama said Ayers was just a guy in the neighborhood despite his radicalism and that he couldn't disown Wright despite his racism, the media went all



    ... as if that's all they needed.

    And him bringing Van Jones into the WH caused nary a ripple.
    Bubba, you are still living in that make-believe world of yours ... Did you ever read Wright's entire sermon? BTW, Van Jones wasn't around very long ... remember, that witch hunt was successful .... Obama caves too quickly to the hate you guys traffic in too often ...
