“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. “You’ve unfortunately reacted by once again resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine.”

Good for Issa! And it’s good to get the word out as far as how the new administration is trying to running the show.

I saw Emmanuel standing next to Obama and figure he is not much more than 5 feet tall. He has one of those “midget” hangups of trying to overcome his stature with an aggresive personality.

Republican officeholders had better find their inner SOB, fast.

We had ALL better find our inner ruthlessness.

Obammas people are acting like they are still in Chicago. Im afraid it will be a steep learning curve for them in DC.

Keep the conversation on Chicago style politcs, loud and often. There is a disconnect here that people just need to understand. Bully politics in the White House. Are Americans really getting this??

Congressman Issa is a brave man. Just take a look into Emanuel's eyes and you will see the soul of a killer.
The stakes in Washington are quantitatively higher than they were back in Illinois. We are engaged in a battle to the death and the dems know it.

It is called the Nepolian Complex. I have seen it many times. Here is a fine example of a guy who did not get His A$$ kicked enough when he was young.

Issa has been consistently against Obama and his policies, unlike many in the GOP including the Chairman, who spent months basking in Obama’s presence before they bought a clue that the only thing Obama was interested in stimulating was Socialism.

Issa needs to grow a spine and tell Obama that the legality of the use of Czars will be reviewed by Congress and the practice may have seen it’s last days.

“Congressman Issa is a brave man.”

Not only that, he’s really cool.

Go get ‘em Mr. Issa. Let the punks know that they’re punks.

Congressman Issa is a brave man.

I'm thinking that maybe he is PRESIDENTIAL material!

He has taken the bull by the horns. Other Republicans are cowering in the shadows.

Issa is a Republican. He can’t institute a congressional review of the Czar policy.

However, he can certainly speak out on the issue, again and again.

Too bad he's not a senator, now that it's OK to make senators President.

Sarah and he would look good together, no?

Some congressmen resentfully hide from angry constituents while others are emboldened. Congressman Issa has previously stood down terrorist bomb plots.

Yes, it’s commonly referred to as “short man’s syndrome.” Wow, I feel like shouting! About time someone said “BOO!” to the little Ballerina. That little thug has needed a smackdown for years. I’m sensing something happening in this country, aren’t you? Maybe the America I grew up in is beginning to rumble to life.

Unfortunately, "circling the wagons" is a defensive tactic.... we need to figure out how to do an effective offensive.

They can make an issue of it at the townhall meetings, saying that it is a wholesale effort to circumvent Checks and Balances.
