Vote GOP: Revisit Clinton Witch Hunt only this time, Obama GOP takeover could make committee staff member America's 'worst nightmare' Darrell Issa, Gunning to be Obamas Dan Burton If there's one congressional aide White House officials might wind up fearing most, it's Larry Brady. He's all but unknown, but Brady is the secret weapon for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). As minority staff director of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Brady stands ready to wield almighty subpoena power if Republicans seize control of the chamber in November and make Issa chairman of the panel. --- --- --- The current back story quietly spinning along brought to mind something candidate Obama said during the primaries. Talking about the the battles of the 90s in order to make the case for his candidacy and turning the page from the past and what happened back then. If Darrell Issa has his way, Pres. Obama may find out that many of the battles of the 90s happened beyond what Clinton could control. Sometimes its simply about politics and the way Republicans see their role against a Democratic president. --------------------------------------------------------------- Yeah, the GOP take back of the US House is all about governing. The Republicans haunted the Clinton administration in order to keep them from governing. The Democrats never did this to George W. Bush, even though there were very serious disagreements. When the Democrats won the US House back in 2006, they did NOT do what the extremists in the party wanted, and what the extremists in the GOP feared (payback) -- the Democrats started to govern. Now the GOP is looking to win back the US House, and not only will I predict a House playing political witch hunts, but the GOP itself is running on not governing, but bringing back what is to them a winning strategy of old. The GOP does not want Obama to govern. They would rather America go down the shit tubes before they allow a Democrat to do something and get credit for it.
