Darrell Issa has been a problem for Barack Obama ever since he took over as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He is one of Obama’s Public Enemies (he has so many of them now it is hard to identify him as Public Enemy Number One).
Issa has launched investigations and inquires into various policies and actions of the administration (The Department of the Interior, The Department of Transportation, the Department of Justice to name a few). He threatens to embarrass Obama and challenge his competency. The Democrats shoved aside the Democratic member who would normally have been the ranking minority member of the committee and put in his place a more effective Obama protector Elijah Cummings. He seems to have earned the right enemies who seemingly will stop at nothing to derail his efforts to protect Americans.
Therefore, he seems to have drawn the ire of the usual suspects in the Obama camp. Media Matters, the Soros-funded outfit, has attacked Issa for example.
The latest round of attacks come from the New York Times and the Soros-funded Center for American Progress and its political action arm Think Progress.
Last week the paper gave Issa the type of treatment it meted out to John McCain during the 2008 campaign: a front-page column calling into question various aspects of Issa’s business career. Some of this material was recycled from a previous New Yorker magazine profile on Issa (the New Yorker is also an Obama cheerleader, Koch brothers attacker and Soros-defender).
