Welcome to the Darrell Issa Hall of Shame
You don't have to read his long rap sheet to reach that conclusion. A brief tour of the Darrell Issa Hall of Shame will suffice:
Issa's slur against World Trade Center rescue workers was the perhaps most unforgettable moment in a truly forgettable political career. Almost three years before President Obama signed the $4.2 billion 9/11 responders health care bill into law, Rep. Issa was waging a campaign to stop it.
Desperate to refuse federal funds to the ailing workers who rushed to Ground Zero, Issa denied the September 11 carnage was an attack on the United States at all. As the New York Post summed it up:
By 2010, Issa had emerged, in the words of the New York Times, as President Obama's "Annoyer-in-Chief." And fresh off his inquisition in the Sestak no-pay-for-no-play non-scandal he deemed "Obama's Watergate," Issa last summer made clear he plans to ramp up the GOP's efforts to protect its friends and target its enemies. While the Obama administration had much to fear a Republican takeover of the House, Darrell Issa promised his party's business backers they would have a friend on Capitol Hill:
"That will make all the difference in the world. I won't use it to have corporate America live in fear that we're going to subpoena everything. I will use it to get the very information that today the White House is either shredding or not producing
By August 2010, Politico was previewing what it deemed Issa's "season of subpoenas." But for his part, Darrell Issa was sending mixed signals about the inquisition to come. As the Washington Post reported:
Good Darrell, writing in USA Today on Oct. 11: "Oversight is not and should not be used as a political weapon against the occupant of the Oval Office. It should not be an instrument of fear or the exclusive domain of the party that controls Congress."
In January 2011, Bad Darrell repeated the charge. Ignoring both Nixon's Watergate scandals and the Abramoff, U.S. attorneys, Plamegate, domestic spying and MZM imbroglios which defined the Bush White House, Issa branded Obama's "one of the most corrupt" administrations.

Darrell Issa is a corrupt as he says the administration is. What do his constituents see in him? He drips slime. WWW.IMOPENTOIT.COM
counties in Southern Calif. San Diego is a big conservative defense town, rife with shady contractors that love shady reps.
full article, what a horrible person. I'll never understand what makes a person behave like that.
small, belittling and petty when it come to humans...grandious, embracing and forgiving when it comes to corporations. Is there anything worse in a politician?
thereby hurting the whole country.
standards; no compassion for those who get in the way of Big Capital; no senses of decency and shame...But Issa, while he may not have friends or be aware of the concept of friends, gathers in the Big $$$ and gets plenty of rubes to reelect him.
On second thought, maybe it's not such a tough world for him.
Issa lives his life in a cesspool. Unfortunately he is trying to drag this country down with him!
It's really a one elephant race.
Ok, although I wouldn't want Darrell Issa as a friend, a neighbor, or even an acquaintance I simply can't understand why he is held in high acclaim by republicans. Republicans tell us they are good people and believe in god and that us liberals are basically the spawn of the devil.
If you have not seen this self righteous rant pleas do. If you have this self righteous circle jerk, if you have finished throwing up, re visit the hero Darrell Issa's Hall of Shame.
Bishop E.W. Jackson: "The idea that Barack Obama is a Christian is Laughable"
Kinda gives me the willies that folk like this might be you're neighbor.
I cannot believe this man isn't involved in underhanded background dealings that are illegal and even criminal. I really wish he would be investigated. A good forensic audit into his financial affairs could probably shine a light on this. I truly believe the recall that he instigated and that brought us Arnold Schwarzenegger as our Governor was not above board. I believe the petition signatures were obtained by fraud. If he was capable of doing this, I believe there is much, much more under there regarding his political dealings. I really want him investigated.
of the most corrupt presidents in modern times."
He didn't know he was corrupt, found out now, and has to adjust to that?
Corrupt people don't need to adjust to the fact, they know they are corrupt. And that applies to Bad Darrell.
that he is so bad at it.
He ends up looking like the enormous tool that he is.
Just another crooked rich guy that thinks everyone else is an idiot.
He's just like a dog chasing a car. He wouldn't know what to do with one if he caught it.
He plays the part of a jerk. He can't act but ends up with some success anyway because he happens to be a real jerk and that's what the part called for.
