KS: Walt - Just asking for accountability for what he said, just like I do for anyone else.

and when asked to be accountable himself. KS replies:

Sorry - I don't plan to spoon feed you, since you are the only one asking. That's what search engines are for. If not, it proves my point that you aren't curious enough. Sheesh...

So you're not curious enough to get that search engine steamed up? Rather hypocritical, don't you think?

Correct - that was to you because it seemed like you were playing ignorant and being lazy.

Changing the topic again, T-S. Is that all you have ?

I see that George Soros is your hero - until you find out how much he has indirectly cost you perhaps. Would that even sway you ?

You never answered the above question. Try again...


Good grief, just as frenzied as ever. Hey KS, you think Romney will annoy the conservatives?


Issa's a complete zero. He's held 11 congressional hearings on Solyndra. Nothing. He couldn't come up w/ a single charge. In fact, he & his Republican cronies lobbied the Dept of Energy for exactly the same type of government loan for their own districts. Issa, himself, wrote letters to Steven Chiu asking for a green loan.

In 3 & l/2 years, Issa has proven to be a complete dud w/ his cornball investigations. This may be his last chance. Frogmarch Holder or go out without a single kill. It's all he's got.

Puget Sound Blathers

Nice job of illustrating that T-S is going 'full troll' here. Demands that others produce 'evidence' but unable to bring the goods to the table when requested. Empty suit.

3 1/2 years? More like 1 1/ 2 years. The Dems controlled the House before then and they were not gonna let anything happen.


"Dems controlled the House before then"

Posted by: Puget Sound Blathers | June 21, 2012 at 05:47 AM

sounds like a lack of leadership on Issa's watch, wraped up in blame.


Selective memory, PS. Number-wise there were enough Dems, but some of them were DINOS like Ben Nelson, and the ridiculous rule of Super Majority allowed things to die in the Senate. Nancy Pelosi got hundreds of bills passed easily in the House, but the majority was not large enough in the Senate to overcome the supermajority and the bills went nowhere. Had they done a simple majority, a lot more would have been accomplished. Right now, with the majority in the House being Republican, and those Republicans vowing to vote against anything President Obama wants ( even bills they originally sponsored) nothing will get done. Which, of course, will be blamed on Obama. Which, oourse, is the plan.


Issa and his brothers were car thief's before he got into congress. then he bought a car alarm company lol


more on fast and furious Issa:

"For years I used to tell everyone that I went into it because my brother was a car thief. Then they found out when I ran for office my brother did spend time in prison as a car thief, and it ruined the whole joke I'd had for 20 years in business," Issa said during an interview with WhoRunsGov.

Issa himself was accused several times of auto theft. In the early 1970s, he and his brother were arrested after police suspected them of stealing a Maserati sports car from a dealership in Cleveland. Issa says the police mistook his identity, and the charges were later dismissed. ISSA SAYS....

Another time, Issa was arrested and eventually pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon. Police found a handgun and a tear-gas gun — plus ammunition for both — in Issa's glove compartment. MAKES YOU WONDER

Questions In The Past

These stories first arose when Issa ran for the Senate in 1998. An investigative reporter named Lance Williams was looking into the then-candidate's biography.

"He had been a soldier, and he claimed that he was part of an elite bomb detecting unit that guarded President Nixon at the 1971 World Series," said Williams. OH BOY

Williams called up the Nixon Presidential Library, and was told that Nixon hadn't gone to any World Series games that year. Then Williams looked into Issa's purportedly stellar career in the Army. LIAR

"The biography that he was providing the press in the context of his campaign was all wrong. He had a bad conduct rating. He was demoted, and a fellow soldier accused him of stealing his car," said Williams. ROFL

Issa eventually took over the company that built car alarms.

Ryan Lizza, a reporter for The New Yorker magazine, detailed Issa's early business moves in a 2011 story.

The Fire

Issa had a warehouse full of electronics that, one night in 1982, caught fire. Investigators later found "suspicious burn patterns," Lizza reported, and found that Issa had done some odd things.

A co-worker claimed that before the fire, Issa had put important electronic prototypes in a fireproof box, and that he'd removed the business's computer and financial files from the building. Investigators also found that less than three weeks before the blaze, Issa had increased the company's fire insurance from $100,000 to more than $400,000. HMMMM

"So you add the more than quadrupling of the insurance along with the taking the computer and putting the other stuff in a fireproof box, and you can see why both the arson investigators and the insurance investigators pointed a finger, you know, at Issa after this fire," said Lizza. SWEET GEEZUS

Issa said he had nothing to do with the fire, but the insurance company refused to pay the claim. The two later settled out of court. WHAT A DICK!


Issa - another fringe Republican. The whole party is fringe and moderate Republicans must be voting for them. What does that tell you?

Hey Preston, you got a bio on Rick Scott, governor in Florida?


scott--he's pure evil as well

Preston, how do we know you're not evil or a weevil ?Scott is upholding state law and the Federal Government had no business. Holder was being arbitrary and capricious by his actions and shows that he openly supports illegal voters (i.e. voter fraud)

Why in the world are you defending this corrupt AG ?
He encourages voter fraud, lawlessness, cheating, letting terrorists out of Gitmo and a President who wants to be a dick-tator. C'mon - progressives your brains are fried - put down the bong and face reality.

Issa, if anything has been too soft on Mr. Holder, the worst AG since John Mitchell.

Schadenfreude ! Peace- out...
