Issa voted against the bailouts, at least.

He is allright. he's seemingly stood up against the banksters as well as anyone up there in washington.

What a fantastic letter!  It is more than "well worth the read".

I've said all along that Obama made a huge mistake selecting Rahm as his COS as the guy is simply a dick and a prick.  He is also an asshole.

I note that Drudge and others reported the other day that Rahm called the powers that be at the big 3 networks (and Fox, I believe) looking for more time for prime time press conferences for the Prez, the last being the health care matter that gave birth to the "beer summit" matter.  For my ZH friends, please note that as far as NBC goes, Rahm's call was directly to J. Immelt of GE "oops, we had a little accounting oversight" Corporation.

Rahm is a little napoleonic wienie and I suggest to Mr. Obama that he is much better off without him.

Israel runs the states. They put him there, not Obama. Don't think he's leaving or the policy he is pushing is going anywhere anytime soon.

Reserve all attacks for Ivy League grads. Spoiled, rich, arrogant, ignorant assholes are all the same - regardless of race, creed, religion, etc.

While you can always get suckered into playing a rigged game, you're much better off inventing your own :)

Should we care he served in the Israeli Army and holds an Israeli passport? How many dual national types in Executive branch? I thought fighting for a foreign army was not a good thing, or am I just old-fashioned?

If you want more info look into George Soros and his role in getting Obama elected. Obama is nothing more than a puppet (some say fall guy) for a behind the scenes scheme being played out on the American people.

Rahm is a coward and a turncoat. that's how all Israelis view him. He never served his time in the army, and now he tells Israelis what to do and how to live? Chutzpah! Rahm is less than nothing - just another bully.

I'd say your analysis is faulty. His choice and what he does is a reflaction on the person Obama really is. That'swhy what happened is insightful.

They are now in cover up and punish mode just like the bush white house. they don't want their failures noted.

TARP ovesight board is a good place to send info regarding how the firms are using tarp money with the fed to manipulate markets. they appear to actually want to do something

He might be a douche but the message still rings true.
However, Rahmbo will simply IGNORE this letter
without consequence.

Its way douchier of GOP politicians to slam the stimulus and then turn around and take credit for bringing the money to their states. One or the other imo.

24426...it seems the letter is more about Rahm than the congressperson.  I can't recall a WH Chief of Staff being eviscerated like this.  I imagine that it may have happened, but this is pretty strong stuff.

Well right now I will take any "douche-nozzle" no matter how tall they are to put a stop to the wasteful spending of these stimulus dollars... in Minnesota the stimulus dollars are being used to tear up perfectly good roads and put down another identical road; and to create unneeded police turn-around lanes between divided highways... it makes me sick to see such waste.

Since Israel resides within the bowels of the U.S. government getting rid of Rahm will simply be an act of musical chairs.

Am I actually reading this absolute idiocy on ZH? The Zerobama administration is the most anti-Israel administration in history and you nitwits believe that Barry's COS is pulling strings for them? Pull your heads out of your asses and follow current events a bit closer. Good Christ.

An interesting early chapter in the Goldman-Emanuel relationship took place in the setting of Bill Clinton’s campaign for the White House in 1992. Clinton hired Emanuel as his chief fundraiser.

At the same time, however, Emanuel was on the payroll of Goldman Sachs, receiving $3,000 per month from the firm to “introduce us to people,” in the words of one Goldman partner at the time. This is certainly a noteworthy relationship, but it’s one that has almost entirely escaped scrutiny.

Corporations and partnerships are and were at the time prohibited by law from contributing to federal candidates out of the corporate coffers. So, while Rahm tapped Goldman employees personally for six figures in gifts to Clinton’s candidacy—more than any other firm—Goldman, as a company, was helping keep Clinton’s top fundraiser well-fed.

When you look at the explanations Goldman and Emanuel gave for Emanuel’s employment—he was advising on “local political races” or “introduc[ing] us to people”—it’s easy to suspect that Goldman was using firm money to fund the Clinton campaign by paying the campaign’s top fundraiser for nebulous “consulting” work—all while the campaign was in debt and delaying paychecks to campaign staff.


In his four terms in Congress, Emanuel has raised $74,750 from Goldman, making the firm his number four source of funds.

Nice job Darrel! Darrel Issa is one of the wealthiest people in congress - I think worth a couple hundred million. He has enough money to tell people to fuck off - including that little shrimp(Emanuel) who runs Obama.

Gosh it sure was darn nice of Mr. Issa to provide a list of definitions to Mr. Immanuel.  Such consideration and accomodation between the prostitutes legislative and thieves executive is a rare commodity these days.  Good on you Mr. Issa.  Perhaps you should have included what the definition of "is" is.

Going after Kyl via Brewer in Barry's state, as in BARRY GOLDWATER.  Hey Rahm, you dumb jackass have you ever heard of the Barry Goldwater Range?  AZ is a cowboy state that has ZERO tolerance for Chicago-style politics (unless your name is Jerry Colangelo).  You just screwed yourself and Barry-O big time - BIG TIME!
