Liberals have lost their way having to support Obama. Sad for them because they had a chance to really take over.

Now most likely they lose the Senate, most governorships, and maybe even the White House in 2 yrs.

If it was the repubs doing this, losing emails, pleading the 5th, not telling the truth, liberals would be up in arms.

Liberals aren't liberals anymore though. They don't care about being progressive, only being in power.

Hmmmm...Issa wasn't too concerned when this happened

Politicos squabble over 'missing' White House e-mails

Democrats suggest administration must do more to restore messages to satisfy record-keeping requirements. Republicans say some e-mails were simply filed in "wrong digital drawer."
Democrats and Republicans were warring Tuesday over reports that the White House has "lost"--or simply failed to keep--archives of e-mails belonging to the president and his advisers.

Since last spring, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that an estimated 5 million messages from 473 days between 2003 and 2005 allegedly vanished from e-mail servers housed within the president's office.

Republicans accused the Democrats of pursuing the investigation simply to dig up dirt on Rove and waste hundreds of thousands of dollars of money that the RNC could be using to shore up its candidates' campaigns.

"Are we simply going on a fishing expedition at $40,000 to $50,000 a month?" Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) asked National Archives and White House officials at the hearing. "Do any of you know of a single document, because this committee doesn't, that should've been in the archives but in fact was done at the RNC?"

Credibility: Darrell Issa’s Problem
If you would like to know just exactly what’s wrong with Washington these days, look no further than Darrell Issa, the Representative of the 49th district in North San Diego County. Nothing screams “extreme partisanship” more than the way Issa has comported himself during his tenure in office.

Darrell Issa is on a one man crusade to discredit the Obama administration, and one can only assume with the ultimate goal of impeaching Obama. Since Obama took the oath of office on January 20, 2009, there is no slight, no minute detail that Mr. Issa is willing to let slip by his guard in an effort to bring down this Democratic regime. It’s enough to make Don Quixote burst with pride!

The trouble is that Mr. Issa isn’t exactly the model of decency, honesty, and fairness himself. And as the saying goes, “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.”

The latest dustup that has Issa once again tilting at windmills is the alleged criminal act of offering Representative Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania an unpaid position in an effort to entice him to drop his ultimately successful primary challenge of sitting Senator and Republican convert Arlen Specter. You see, at the time of his much publicized switch, the Obama administration pledged to support Senator Specter in his reelection bid in 2010. And support him they did, if only rather tepidly.

This, in Issa’s partisan opinion, is grounds for criminal prosecution. Which would be just peachy with me so long as Mr. Issa was consistent in his quest for justice.

First, a brief historical look at the career of Mr. Issa: On his military service, Congressman Issa claimed that he served for nine years in the Army. But records show that he served only five years. Issa also claimed that he was part of an elite Army bomb unit that was detailed to protect President Nixon at the 1971 World Series. But records show that he spent a mere six months on a bomb disposal team while in a college ROTC program, which hardly qualifies him for elite status. Even more devastating, though, is that Nixon never attended any of the 1971 World Series games.

TalkingPointsMemo also found that Issa’s Army record was “marred by a bad conduct rating, a demotion, and allegations that he had stolen a fellow soldier’s car.” But that’s not the last time Issa would be accused of a crime.

In 1972, Issa was convicted of “Possession of an Unregistered Handgun,” the second time that year he was arrested on weapons charges. In 1982, he was a suspect in an arson fire at a Ohio manufacturing plant he owned. Just weeks prior to the fire, Issa had greatly beefed up his fire insurance protection on the plant.

In the political arena, Issa’s record is rather dubious as well: He accused outed CIA covert operative Valerie Plame of perjury during the congressional hearings investigating the misuse of power by the Bush administration in the commutation of Scooter Libby’s sentence; his allegations were baseless. He disparaged the testimony of four women whose family members were killed in Iraq at a hearing investigating the malfeasance of U.S. contractor Blackwater. He called the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York a plane crash to justify denying support to the heroes who rushed to Ground Zero and who are now suffering from serious health problems as a result.

He defended Roger Clemens’ steroid use in Congressional hearings. He defended the Bush administration’s criminal destruction of White House email records, saying that they weren’t intentionally deleted, but lost because of a software glitch (a charge he was later forced to retract). In fact, nearly every time the Bush White House came under scrutiny, there was Congressman Issa riding in on his white horse.

His defenses of the White House, though, only come when a Republican resides there. Ever since Obama took up residence, Issa has been on a non-stop quest to uncover a Watergate-esque scandal, all to no avail.

Congressman Issa has been rather schizophrenic on the issues: He adamantly opposes trials in civilian courts for Guantanamo detainees, while at the same time insisting suspected terrorists be afforded their Miranda rights, and opposing the loosening of the Miranda rules, even in the case of erstwhile Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. He decries “uncontrolled government spending,” yet wholeheartedly supported the Bush administration’s uncontrolled spending.

Issa was a key figure behind the firing of former U.S. Attorney for San Diego Carol Lam for political reasons, yet he demands an investigation into the Obama administration’s dismissal of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin, insisting it was for political reasons and citing a lack of transparency. As if the Bush administration’s firing of eight U.S. Attorneys was completely above-board and beyond reproach.

Darrell Issa is a very wealthy man who seems to have forgotten that not everybody in his district is so fortunate. And his thirst for power and attention has become a national embarrassment. He has been dishonest and disingenuous as a representative of the 49th district. He has worked tirelessly to advance the Republican agenda, yet has done precious little to make government work better for the voters who hired him. He has been an excellent political provocateur, but an abysmal legislator and representative of the people of the San Diego County.

San Diego deserves better. Mr. Issa was sent to Washington to work for the people of San Diego, not the Republican Party. Congress is being crippled by partisan sniping at its worst, and Congressman Issa is among the worst culprits. With unemployment in the county hovering around 11%, it would behoove Mr. Issa to get to work on behalf of his constituents instead of ministering over his Joseph McCarthy revival and his march to legitimize every last conspiracy theory whispered into his ear.

I have no love for Issa to be honest, but the questions he's asking are legitimate. I wouldn't leave my sports car unlocked around him lol.

this is so different from the attack on Rove. Besides Bush was always good about offering up some scapegoats.

All Obama has to do is let lerner be ollie north and get it over with. Instead he fights till the end nothing is wrong. Bush let Scooter Libby go down right? But trying to say no smidgen of corruption makes Obama own it.

If you were actually paying attention* you'd know by now that Obama doesn't really "fight" at all. It's one of many things that drive his supporters so crazy (and perhaps his haters even more crazy). He's been this way going all the way back to his first election campaign against Hillary. He seemingly sits back, above the fray, and lets everyone make spectacles of themselves. It's all very calculated, and often successful. But, it's not the manner or style of a typical leader. And he'd be more successful if he lead from ahead sometimes, and not always from behind. To the extent he "leads" at all.

* Note: you probably are "paying attention", you're just not remotely smart enough to really see and understand what's really going down.

BS you just made my point. When has Obama had to lead? He was a Senator for like how long and did nothing of note? Then he became President and has sat back and just let things unfold.

He's not a leader he's always in campaign mode. Campaign mode where no decision, or blaming someone else for the decision is his mantra.

Oh don't look now but if economy doesn't pick up it's a recession.

The minority party never gets to implement it's agenda. What's your point? That Obama and the liberals won't go along with the Republican agenda? Wow what a shock. Meanwhile repub governors are doing quite well.

Obviously though when one party has the White House and the Senate all the other party can't do much.

The real story is Fast and Furious, The VA, IRS, getting punked by Putin, losing security in Iraq and doing nothing, failure to restart the peace process with Israel and the Palestinians, and the kicker now a shrinking economy. He's a friggin nightmare and it's great fun watching liberals try and not admit it lol. If the media was anything like they were back in Carters days he would already be a joke.

Bwaaaa! Obama is the Josh McDaniels of Presidents.
