Top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa announced he will sit with the previous chairman of the House oversight committee at the State of the Union, Democratic Rep. Edolphus Towns, in a move he says shows his willingness to move beyond partisan entrenchments.
The move comes as Towns replacement, the newly appointed top Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, is staking out a role of combative foil willing to fight for every inch.
Issa and Towns got along well during Towns tenure as chairman over the last two years, but many Democrats saw Towns as a weak leader of the committee unable to keep Issa in check.
Today, the contrast between the genial Towns-Issa relationship and the increasingly bitter Towns-Cummings relationship is particularly palpable as the two have traded warring letters over the direction of the committee.

I thought Barack the Kenyan said that the Republicans had to “sit in the back”.
This “sitting together” thing is completely ridiculous, but I guess it will give all the pundits something to talk about before the speech begins. Too bad for Olbermann that he’ll have to sit this one out.

So far Issa has delivered precisely ZERO except for flapping his jaws.
The time for talk is over, Darryl. You’re not new to that game or that committee. You know darn well just what needs to be done. Stop talking and GET BUSY! Stand and deliver. Now.
She does give as good as she gets.
Tis SOTU should have been a big statement moment for our new masive majority. Tees idiots flubbed it, just like they flubbed the big tax compromise and allowed this ass to dance on the graves of six dead Arizona citizens. This is starting out in disastrous a manner.
Your response to her should have been:
“Good... I have always wanted to shoot zombies for real”!
“Never allow your enemy to pick the battlefield”.
The republicans do not even realize that they are locked in a battle.
The republicans have allowed obama to completely reverse ALL of the massive momentum that we delivered to their sorry party in November of last year... they have wasted everything that we all worked so hard for. They didn't earn it... they have no respect for it... we earned it... we caused this revolution to happen... not republican party commissars.
How do we continue to battle our enemies on the front lines, when our Officer Corps starves us of needed supplies and is surrendering every battle... even before the battle has been engaged?
Why, why, why??? I thought Issa had some backbone!
Oh he might have plenty of back bone, it’s the cajones he’s small on. Same song different sopranos ... politics as your career choice requires funding for election cycles. You didn’t expect them to be as honest as their rhetoric pretends didya?
Leave it to the Stupid Party.
Who gets the corsage? Is there a curfew?? Gosh, I hope they all have a swell time! Thanks, RINOs!!! (and....Dont be slutty! You wont be RESPECTED in the morning......)
You just know that old POS McCain is pleasuring himself thinking about the glorious coverage he’ll get for be bipartisan.
They have been spineless since Bush I.
