Issa Calls Out Obama For Having “Enemies List”…
Weasel Zippers ^ | September 21, 2012

Bravo!

Via Politico:

Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, likened President Barack Obama to President Richard Nixon on Thursday, slamming Obama for having “an enemies list.”

“Not since Richard Nixon have we seen a president who puts together an enemies list and has a whole team pursuing it,” Issa said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.” “That’s what’s happened in this administration. It’s sad. It’s not the America I want to see going forward. I sincerely hope that after the election, regardless, the American people will have made a statement that they won’t tolerate this.”

Issa’s remarks came in the wake of a story in the Daily Caller, much-discussed in the conservative blogosphere, highlighting what some consider a collaboration between Department of Justice officials and the liberal watchdog group Media Matters and an effort to target critics of the administration.

“I think the important point is, these people represent the culture that President Obama brought into Washington, a culture of division, a culture that embraces the concept of, the 1 percent is evil and somehow the rest of America just needs to…punish the 1 percent,” Issa said. “I guess I’m part of the 1 percent for purposes of their attack. So are you.”

Call me skeptical, but all we’ve heard regarding any investigation of Obama, Holder etc has been bluster. Is Issa gonna get really mad and start printing his harshly worded memos in 14 point pica bold italic with lots of exclamation points? Oh please. Ping me when they send out a few indictments or arrest warrants. This is getting real old.

” - - - a president who puts together an enemies list and has a whole team pursuing it,” Issa said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.” “That’s what’s happened in this administration.”

HEY! Arrogant, incompetent, unqualified, Marxist Dictator “You Lie” Obama, PUT ME ON YOUR LIST!

I am a PROUD American opposed to every part of Obamanation, and so I insist on being on the list of those who oppose the ideology of Obama/Marxist re-distribution: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

BTW Barry Soetoro, it is time to give back your undeserved Nobel Peace Prize. That worthy gesture would go a long way to quell the violence from Hell that your Foreign Policy has created. Yeah, I know, that was your Secretary of Statements Hilly’s fault.

Sure, he’s got an enemies list. He’s a petty Chicago thug politician, they all keep enemies lists. I know people who are being audited by the IRS because they made Obama’s enemies list.

I guess it’s alright for Homeland inSecurity and the military to put conservative Americans on the enemies list.

Just don’t put GOP donars on the enemies list, Obammy.

What a sorry Congress we have! Issa FINALLY nailed AG Holder with Contempt BUT DID NOT FOLLOW THROUGH!

Now we hear Issa saying: “ - - - “That’s what’s happened in this administration. It’s sad. It’s not the America I want to see going forward.”

It is SAD? Is that what we are paying you to do? Sit on TV and say you are SAD?!!!!!!!!!

1.) Send out the Sergeant of Arms of the US House with Rep. Allen West as a sworn Deputy, and march into Holder’s office and escort him in handcuffs to the the nearest police tank for processing.

2.) Defund the “List” Shock troops group.

DO YOUR JOB Congress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

____________________

To be on the list
You just insist
‘That all you base
Are belong to us.’

The One in 300 Million
Is but a knat
Whose only power
Comes from us,
And that’s that!

As long as we cower
And stop our outrage,
Obama increases his
Arrogant courage.

So stand at the ready
And advance on the foe,
Then hear the MSM shriek
“Your truth is not so!”

Truth to a Liberal
Is relative, you see:
It depends if the messenger
Is it you or MSNBC?

Today start your own enlistment to Obama’s Enemy List
And march to the 11-6, America’s Concord Bridge.
Unfurl the Battle Flags, and blow the trumpets of TRUTH.
Skirmish away the squealing MSM,
As they fall out to detract from our Patriotic Mission.
For we will not stop until Obama is in TREASON Prison!

Issa let Holder off the hook, all talk and no results. Took nearly two years to hold him in contempt, then he accepts Holder's investigation of himself.

Madness.

Issa did his job...Boehner hid in the closet.

McConnell also hid in the same closet. We have no leadership at all in D.C.

As I understand it, and arrest for contempt has something like a 24 hour lifespan.

Let’s all line up and have a contest of 10 billion 9mm pistol rounds vs 50 billion .30 caliber rifle bullets and see who wins. I heard that if you swing your arm around like a windmill, you can get another five yards distance out of the cop-killer bullets. And don’t forget to aim through the Buckwheat ghetto iron sights.

It is a ‘Brave New World’ now Sarge.

Buckwheat has gone hi-tech!

Yup, he has his own personal fleet of Obamadrones, and it didn’t cost HIM one single penny!

BTW, do any of his drones run on Green Energy? Now that would be REALLY PC hi-tech!
