Obama Stooge David Plouffe: Hey, That Criminal Darrell Issa Sure Has Some Nerve Investigating Obama and the IRS

Well, did anyone really think Team Obama would go down in flames without engaging  in the dreaded Politics of Personal Destruction? Unable to coherently defend Obama from his myriad scandals, former Obama campaign chief and White House adviser has sunk into the mud by slandering House Ways and Means Chairman Darrell Issa on Twitter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He would not say any  such nonsense without the approval of Obama, so consider it a declaration of war against Issa. Although, granted, such accusations have long been lodged against Issa. Remember this when the left dismisses any allegations as old news.

Issa, one of the wealthiest members of Congress, is the former owner of a car alarm company – it’s his voice that warns would-be burglars “Protected by Viper. Stand back,” which you can hear HERE.

Issa once noted to a Washington Post interviewer that “For years, I used to tell everyone that I went into it because my brother was a car thief. Then they found out when I ran for office my brother did spend time in prison as a car thief, and it ruined the whole joke.”

In 1972, then-19-year-old Issa too was arrested under suspicion of stealing a car, but Issa claims it was a case of mistaken identity and the charges were ultimately dropped.

In 1982, the office and factory of two companies Issa had purchased, Quantum Enterprises and Steal Stopper International, caught on fire. The insurance company’s investigation found “suspicious burn patterns” and company officials noted that in the month before the fire Issa had increased his insurance from $100,000 to $462,000. As the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza noted, the “Ohio state fire marshal never determined the cause of the fire and no one was ever charged with a crime”; Issa and the insurance company settled out of court.

Asked why he brought up Issa’s criminal record from 1972 (when the charges were dismissed) and an arson investigation from 21 years ago where no one was charged with a crime, Plouffe told CNN that Issa’s “ethics issues are far more recent. Look at ethics complaints filed.”

There have been at least three ethics complaints filed against Issa, all from left-leaning groups. Complains filed in and of themselves don’t necessarily mean anything, of course. House Ethics Committee or Office of Congressional Ethics judgments are much more important, and as of now there have been none against Issa.

So news from 1972 is OK to dredge up, but according to Jay Carney, Benghazi happened a long time ago. We like this response to Plouffe:

Ouch.

Here’s what we know: David Plouffe, campaign manager for Obama during the 2008 presidential race and currently a senior advisor in the White House, got $100,000 in speaking fees in December 2010 from MTN Group, a South African telecommunications company, according to The Washington Post. At the time, MTN Group was in a partnership with a telecom company owned by the Iranian government. U.S. officials have since met with MTN representatives to discuss concerns that Iran might be using MTN products or resources to spy on citizens.

Well, that certainly isn’t old news now, is it?

Update: Kaboom!

    In 2008, the American people elected Barack Obama in the belief that he could bring “Hope and Change” but he delivered no Hope and Changed the things he said he wouldn’t.

    Issa quietly admitted not too long ago that the White House was not involved in the Bush-created fast and furious program..no connection. So after burning through taxpayers money to come up with nothing, Issa is still spending and spending, as we wait for another doctored email, or specifics from Benghazi that would proof what-that there was a secret plan to tell people that there wasn’t terrorism in Libya?,
    and now when asked for proof of a link to the White House with the IRS, he said we are working on it-no evidence-working on it. The guy is is an ideologue/wingnut/buffoon, spending taxpayers money and coming up empty..again. I hope he continues to over-reach, because the final tab this guy has spent will be his downfall.

    Booooooooooooooosh!!!!

    1. Gee the smartest man in the world couldn’t stop the eeeeeevvvvviiiilllness of Booooosh? Wasn’t that the reason he was elected? Besides those fake greek columns?
    2. There was a gun program under the Booooooosh administration, but it had a couple of subtle differences:
    A. They actually told the Mexican government that they were doing it.
    B. They worked with the Mexican government.
    C. They attempted to track the weapons, and stopped the operation when those efforts failed miserably (electronic trackers were shitty).
    3. Why did captain Transparent invoke executive privelege over a boooooooooosh program? was it because he revered the office of the presidency oh-so-much?

    We get that you don’t like anyone questioning the dear leader; it’s kinda obvious. Come on back and tell us how when Waxman does it, it’s dreamy. Until then, fuck off.

    specifics from Benghazi that would proof what-that there was a secret plan to tell people that there wasn’t terrorism in Libya?,

    Explain:

    “spontaneous mortar barrage”.

    Explain the dear leader blaming a you tube video about the mighty mo and whining about blasphemy at the General Assembly of the UN.

    Explain why the security arrangments consisted of “rent a militia”.

    Not remarkably, this moonbat is republishing outright lies.

    Sure you do, mendacious twat that you are. Whatever Issa is spending is a fricking rounding error in the sums Prez Choom shoveled out the door to his ass-kissing donors in the form of “stimulus” and “green energy.” The idea of some cretin like you decrying Issa’s “wasting” tax-payers money is laughable.

  7. Blacque Jacques Shellacque on 3/03/13 at 11:56 pm

    The reason the White House is going after Issa is because nothing came of Fast and Furious. The investigations began and then…what?

    This IRS deal is a second chance for Issa and the rest of his committee to redeem themselves. Unfortunately, I fear that somehow, the wimp GOP “leadership” is going to somehow interfere and the ball will be dropped again…somewhere along the line.

  8. Funeral Guy on 4/04/13 at 9:00 pm

    @LogicRules. Issa is the head of the house Oversight Committee. That’s what they do…oversight. If he found nothing wrong he found nothing wrong. I love how lefties go on about wasting taxpayer money when it’s spent rooting out Democratic malfeasance. Otherwise, wasting taxpayer money is what they live for.
