<quoted text> Well lets see. Out of a 365 day year Saturday and Sunday take up 104 days. That brings it down to 261 days. The federal government takes off what 50 days a year for holidays (a guess). That brings it down to 211 days. A minimum of two weeks vacation brings it down to 201. Oh the logs they are specifically referring to are after the 2010 mid-terms when the democrats got their butts handed to them. So that would be 2011-2012. So 201 times two is 402. 3 times 161 is 483. Yeah right!!!
That would be correct except he only visited 11 times. So do the math on that ya stupid fck.

Now its Clinton's fault? But Republicans controlled Congress for 6 of 8 Clinton years.
You just told me it was the Democrats fault because they took over Congress so why aren't you blaming the Republican Congress under Clinton?
Oh, it goes back much further than that and is much worse than you even imagine apparently.

The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was strengthened during the Clinton administration as a federal law that MANDATED lenders to offer credit for the entire market and discouraged restricting credit services - known as redlining. In other words, it encouraged banks to make loans to riskier customers.

President Clinton put the Community Redevelopment Act on steroids.

Bush wanted to offer "qualified buyers" with help with a down payment. Pennies compared to the overbloated stickers on homes during the housing balloon.

Which is largely to blame because the balloon eventually popped.

Unqualified buyers in overpriced homes were screwed.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

That said, military courts operate under different rules than civilian courts. The accused has no right to use the court as a propaganda platform. Judges in both civilian and military courts have fairly wide latitude to exclude irrelevant testimony. They also have the right to terminate self-representation if necessary to assure a fair trial. This court has been far too tolerant of the unreasonable demands of the terrorist.

My God, Flack, comparing Obama to death camps. You right whiners get more ridiculous every day.
Issa & his gang of idiots don't give a crap whether the IRS did this or what really happened in Benghazi.
They only care if they can somehow tie Obama to something.


That really is the bottom line. Republican witch hunters always come out of the woodwork when their man isn't in office. Unfortunately, GOP scandal-mongering has won them elections in the past and they are not likely to find morality now.

Issa is a joke and has been for years. He had to give up his desire to run for Governor of California when it was reported that he had:

- Been arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.(Issa pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of possession of an unregistered gun.)

- Indicted on grand theft for conspiring to sell his car, report it as stolen and collect insurance on it.

- Investigated for arson when his car-alarm factory was intentionally torched, after he conveniently quadrupled his insurance coverage and Issa removed the company’s Apple II computer, hardware and account record from the building.(The insurance company settled for only $20,000 instead of the $462,000 covernage. Guess that was far less expensive than taking Issa to court.)

- He lied about his military record by saying that he was part of an elite bomb detecting unit that guarded President Nixon at the 1971 World Series. That never happened but it was disclosed that Issa He had a bad conduct rating and was demoted.

This pretty much explains why John Boehner put Issa in charge of investigating government wrongdoing. Republicans needed someone without integrity to further the GOP agenda to sabotage the Obama presidency.

Schulman could have answered the question and put the issue to bed.

Instead, he chose to tell Congress to go f*ck itself.
