    This is simply gold.

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California), the brand-new chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform, defended comments he had previously made that President Obama is "one of the most corrupt presidents of modern times."

    "I think people misunderstand the meaning of the word corrupt, and obviously, CNN does. 'Corrupt', or 'corrupted' or 'failure', it's no different than a disc drive that's given you some bits that are wrong," Issa said on CNN.

    Yeah, I'm SURE that's what he meant when he said it on Limbaugh's show.

    Issa, during his work, must avoid McCarthyism. If he fails in that, I have no doubt that when the pendulum swings, he will be indicted. He must walk carefully and within the law.

    How can Issa avoid McCarthism when he has already started down the same path by asserting the President is corrupt even though he has no evidence to support his statement. Sounds to me like he's made up his mind about what he is going to find.

    Republicans - the Dis-Loyal opposition!

    Of course the president is corrupt; he is a politician.

    Let him investigate as long as it is not "Return to Witch Hunt Mountain", and the watchdog does not become P Issa Mangnum.

    And by the same token is Issa. So now what are you going to do, support the politician who is openly working against your own best interests or the one who belongs to the party that at least claims to work for the people?

    All politicians may be corrupt to some extent but it is the Repubs who have sold out the people. It's Repubs who have shipped all the jobs overseas, closed 40,000 factories in the last ten years. It's the last three Repub administrations that have borrowed over Ten Trillion dollars.

    Oh, that's right all politicians are corrupt so it doesn't matter...

    You don't know your own best interests, Revere, much less have a clue what the other 310,999,999 of us need.
