POLTICO is reporting, with dripping liberal bias, on what Issa's plans are:
Rep. Darrell Issa, the conservative firebrand whose specialty is lobbing corruption allegations at the Obama White House, is making plans to hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators if Republicans win the House this fall.Politico is known for its liberal bent already but I found this article particularly angry. This tells me that despite the left's attempts to downplay bribes as something that should be excused as business as usual, they're getting quite concerned about Issa's pledged aggressiveness and preparedness for a big showdown.
The California Republican’s daily denunciations draw cheers from partisans and bookings from cable TV producers. He even bought his own earphone for live shots. But his bombastic style and attention-seeking investigations draw eye rolls from other quarters. Now, he’s making clear he won’t be so easy to shrug off if he becomes chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2011.
If the House gets a majority in November's elections and Obama's numbers continue tanking, Issa very well may get some serious political momentum behind him. As Politico reports, he's preparing for such a scenario right now.
Issa has told Republican leadership that if he becomes chairman, he wants to roughly double his staff from 40 to between 70 and 80. And he is not subtle about what that means for President Barack Obama.This story has definitely got the attention of the Democrats and you can tell by how Politico goes after Issa in this article.
