Americans Hold Rep. Darrell Issa In Contempt
Does Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). believe that holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt is helping American families find work?
Struggling middle class parents are trying to feed their kids. Now, Issa's party is leading the effort to cut off food stamps, cut Medicare and Social Security.
How rich is Issa? Isn't he the richest member of Congress?
Darrell Issa is on a crusade to "purge, block and convert" all to his party's ideology. He wants to take control away from Obama and the Democrats in the U.S. Senate.
Christians went on a Crusade in the Middle East, thousands of years ago for many of the same ideological reasons similar to what Republicans state as reasons for their own motives. How did that work out for those Christians back then? People need to wake up to what is going on with the Republican Party.
They are fast becoming the new fascist party willing to suppress any ideas that don't coincide with their own. Germany in the 30s comes to mind from our World's History. We have reached a dangerous juncture in our country. People should choose wisely in November.
What would Issa and men like Issa do with this power?
Would they help people? Would they care for the sick and elderly? Would they care for the millions that are without work because of his party's failed policies?
We are watching what brutal dictators like Assad in Syria do with their power.
Issa is no different.
People who disobey, should be mercilessly crushed. Isn't that "Right", Mr. Issa?
Where are your questions for those in the Bush Administration? Why did you ask Holder for the names of witnesses that were clearly protected under law, then narrow your request for what you needed Holder to give to your over sight committee?
Was it stupidity and ignorance of the law or a total disregard for the existing law that you took an oath to uphold?
Darrell Issa has the contempt of Americans for pushing forward with investigating "all things Democratic" while his party had the "page turned on their lies and corruption" by President Obama. This emboldened them. Obama should have held them accountable.
Democrats made the mistake of not taking the Bush Administration to task for the lies that lead to the Iraq War, to the financial meltdown of the housing market, for the torture at our prison camps, and for the outing of Valerie Plame.
Executive privilege, indeed. If any party has declared executive privilege, it has been the GOP and their henchman like Issa.
Issa is a traitor to the principles on which this country was formed. He is a coward that pretends to do the "people's work" while working to undermine our democracy and a sitting president. He should be tried for treason. Issa is another example of a public servant that abuses his power and has forgotten what public servant does. Your job Mr. Issa is not to serve yourself and personal political aspirations but to work on behalf of the American people.
Where's your investigation into the housing bubble and financial collapse? Yes, exactly.
Eric Holder contempt vote likely cements Darrell Issa’s legacy
