Following reports that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has been orchestrating an effort to intimidate members of Congress and Governors who raise legitimate concerns regarding the effectiveness of the stimulus, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) sent a letter to Emanuel saying While this type of scare tactic may work In Chicago, it will not work to intimidate me or other Members of the United States Congress.
I and others have dared to bring these facts to the attention of President Obama, the Congress and the American people, Issa wrote. Youve unfortunately reacted by once again resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine.
Last month, Politico reported that Emanuel had launched a coordinated effort to jam Senator Kyl and other Administration critics [A]fter seeing Kyl and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) again paint the legislation as a failure on Sunday talk shows, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel directed that the letters from the Cabinet secretaries be sent to [Governor] Brewer, according to two administration officials.
Issa noted, The fact that the letters were coordinated by you to maximize the level of intimidation is supported by the timing, structure, and content of each letter. Not only were the four letters all sent the day following Senator Kyls remarks, but they were also remarkably similar in tone and sentence structure.

That doesn't sound good..........
Absolutely. We have finally begun to circle the wagons.
Issa is fearless.
Emanuel best beware. This man fights back.
LOL yes they make them sit and watch hours of Obama speeches non-stop.
Those are called Democrats. They're also called cowards.
Unfortunately, "circling the wagons" is a defensive tactic.... we need to figure out how to do an effective offensive.
I think it’s a good first step. Any ideas on offense strategy? Anyone?
They can make an issue of it at the townhall meetings, saying that it is a wholesale effort to circumvent Checks and Balances.
“Issa to Emanuel: Back Off!”
God Bless Issa!
My Grandma called it “short person’s disease”.
I am surprised that no one has calculated all the money we are paying those Czars and all their staffs and expenses ...
Taxpayers are paying those bills after all. I bet it’s in the billions.
Nothing like a little sunshine. These abuses need to see the light of day. Great work, Issa.
If we had them, we should not post them in public.
Say what? You obviously subscribe to the axiom that no good deed goes unpunished.
Rahm reminds me of this guy:
Tell them loudly! I believe the repubicans have found their set and are now starting to use them.
“Rahm survive the wrath of the copresident Hillary Clinton, and there are very very few who can make that claim. “
Of course. I have no doubt Rahm could handle himself in a B*tchfight.
Americans need to be very vigilant: Obama and his loathsome COS staff Rahm ("Uriah Heep") Emanuel are very calculated in their use of power. As dissent among the populace grows, they are capable of plotting staged events to boost their advantage. If these two arch-manipulators perceive there isnt measurable fear in the hearts of the people, they will create that fear to solidify their power. They know people will succumb to fear and will relinquish their God-given liberties when they are fearful.
HOW DID RAHM "URIAH HEEP" EMANUEL GET THE COS JOB? Keep in mind Pres Obama campaigned on installing a Civilian Security Force on US soil. Rahm surely got the top White House job as Obamas COS based on his Israeli training on how to organize a Civilian Security Force. ahm has been trained to organize a civilian security force as a volunteer for Sarelthe three-week Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) training program to train civilians. CIRCA 1991 Rahm volunteered for Sarela three-week Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) training program (like US boot camp) where civilians are trained to assist the Israeli military.
Civilians like Rahm lived on an IDF military base to get the proper training. s a civilian volunteer, Rahm assisted the IDF during the 1991 Gulf War, repairing truck brakes in one of Israels northern bases. Pres Obama campaigned on installing a Civilian Security Force on US soil. Looking at ACORNs activities, and the BILLIONS Obama has given them, ACORN is primed for (and is already acting as) a Civilian Security Force.
"I love this president. Under Obamacare's "Funds for F*****s"......I can get a high-tech penile implant----the Penis-a-Go-Go. Has microscopic cameras and remote video relays to wide screens in Planned Parenthood offices....to make sure Americans are using sanitary sexual organs....will save zillions on STD medical costs.
