    one of two most important figures to emerge is North County Congressman Darrell Issa.

    Issa is poised to become a major player in national politics if he wins re-election and Republicans claim a majority of seats in the House of Representatives.

    If those two things happen, the 57-year old Republican from Vista becomes chairman of the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    Issa points out that Obama has only been president for 22 months and the problems all started under Bush.

    Remember the 9 billion lost in Iraq? Remember almost no one was prosecuted after Enron? Remember the money Cheney made from Iraq and the Bush/Cheney energy policy and how the Bush administration not only gave leases to oil companies, but gave those same companies subsidies?

    He is asking the president for subpoena power, when Republicans denied the president subpoena power after BP so BP couldn't be investigated. Now THAT part is hilarious.

    Be careful what you ask for. Let's see if Issa actually goes after Bush like he keeps promising. Obama wanted to "heal the nation", which is why he refused to point fingers at the last administration. Will Issa be as "honest" and "transparent" as he says he wants to be? Will he do the right thing?

    He's not promising to go after Bush. He gave him a pass already. He said something like "Well yeah Bush spent alot of money..but he had 9/11 and he kept us safe". He also acknowledge that Cheney did the same thing with Pawlenty that Clinton did with Sestak, but, now it's more of a problem..because, um, it's NOW.

    Issa is going after President Obama, exclusively. And my hope is that President Obama does the "executive priviledge" tap dance the Bush administration did when even the slightest inquiries were made into what he was up to. That will be freakin hilarious to see if Scalia rules against his own decisions.

    "Obama wanted to "heal the nation", which is why he refused to point fingers at the last administration."

    You're kidding, right? All he's done is point fingers at the previous administration.

    What do you mean by 'the right thing'?

    And... since Pelosi runs a less 'honest' and less 'transparant' Congress than the previous congress, are the left really in a position to whine about 'honesty' and 'transparency'?

    Fool:

    Watch the first link video starting at 5:58.

    He clearly says that he wants to go after Mineral Management whose policies were put in place by Bush.

    Then he goes on to say it was be "disingenuous" to blame this president who has only been president for 22 months when the problems all started under Bush.

    Come on you bunch of fucking idiots. Watch the fucking video. The first link at the top.

    You guys always complain you don't like my links. Well this interview is from ONE OF YOUR OWN. What the hell is wrong with you people?

    It should be. How can they listen and watch something and call it a lie? Clearly, they just gave a knee-jerk reaction without bothering to learn the truth.
