Issa's got a tracker trailer load of subpoenas for Obama's government and can't wait to deliver them.

He's just being politically savvy by making such as statement.

BTW, he didn't say Obama, he said the President (as in the Presidency).

I agree, Issa is a known commodity. Nothing but a smokescreen. He’s made it clear in the past that he can’t wait to get going.

The first step in his success should be ending the eligibility issue. Subpoena the birth certificate and put the question to rest.

I believe he means success as in the post-sweep Clinton success (think welfare reform), not at his original agenda. This is not the time to be cute with words, Issa.

Rats. He is an idiot if he thinks he wont be unemployed in 2012 if he compromises with the president or the dems.
But maybe as you stated he is.

This has Alinsky overtones. Issa is from the People’s Republic of Kalefornia. I am perplexed as there is mental illness in the water there.

However, Issa is a bright man and this could very well mean, “I’m going to make him do “the right thing” and live up to his promises. That would indeed be the most diabolical way of destroying the Obummer.

Wait a minute.

This doesn’t sound the type of comment Issa would make, unless he was drunk.... or sumthin’.

Issa is playing the game. He already stated last night that he'll be doing plenty of oversight hearings on the Obamaoids.

Look how much red is in the mid and eastern sections of Ca. and Wa. too. What a shame leftists control those states.
Oregon is a lost cause too.

Yup, it was said tongue in cheek. He wants to make the Prez successful at being transparent, and that means a trip to subpoenaville.

This is going to be fun to watch.

Darrell has been a solid conservative Congressman, and maybe he’s just playing it coy here.
That’s what I’m hoping.

“This is smart. Figure it out.”

I agree with you. I think he is saying his job is to make sure any illegal behaviour by those in his administration should be brought out in the sunshine so it doesn’t taint his presidency. Wink wink!!

Fortunately, Congressman Issa is much too smart to do anything as idiotic as wasting incredible political capital on unfounded birther internet fantasy rumors. There's too much provable corruption to investigate.

Oh, is that how the Constitution defines your job? It sounds more like the job description of Obama's Chief of Staff

And so it begins....

I agree with Issa as it will be us that will define success. The definition of success will be determined by the Republicans.
