Please begin with an informative title:

Look everyone!  I got a new office!  I can start talking about the IRS, Benghazi, getting rid of the Post Office!  Woo hoo!
In my recent report on "you know who" opening a new office at Dana Point, one of the areas in California's 49th Congressional District, I mentioned that "you know who" is looking to serve his constituents in Orange County this way and...

Well...  Yeah.

Anyway, Dana Point Times has coverage on the Issa Event as the Regional Office officially opened yesterday afternoon:


Residents and leaders of south Orange County turned out in droves to welcome Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) to his new office at Dana Point’s City Hall on Tuesday afternoon.

Nearly 100 people gathered, including Orange County leaders Supervisor Pat Bates and Sheriff Sandra Hutchins, and area leaders from San Clemente and Laguna Niguel to greet the congressman, introduce themselves to his staff and snap a photo or two.

“I have to start off by thanking the city manager, the City Council and the mayor for making something possible that is inherently impossible, and that is the kind of rental rate that our office got here,” Issa quipped, as the crowd erupted in laughter.

Hear that?  Residents and leaders of South Orange County came out in droves, DROVES man!  Nearly 100 people attended!

And Darrell Issa himself said the wanted to thank the city manager, the City Council and the mayor for making something possible that is inherently impossible?


In case people aren't aware, Darrell Issa is the richest man in Congress and also a warmonger who blindly gave a rubber stamp to President George W. Bush every step of the way for the Iraq War.  Well, of course we already know that.

But the point being is, how can someone claim opening up a new office in Dana Point with the deal he got was possible when it's inherently impossible?

bangs his head on the table  I just don't understand this Issa man.

More on the story:


As soon as the ribbon cutting ended, constituents crowded around Rep. Issa to address their concerns and expressed gratitude that his office would now be more accessible.

“We wanted him to know that we are here and ready to help him,” said Chalone Warmen, president of the San Clemente Area Republican Women, Federated. “We are so grateful for his work and want him to know that we are willing to work too.”

With Issa’s district saddling Camp Pendleton, he said the need for two offices, one north and one south of the base, became a necessity. Serving the district from a time of peace to one of war, Issa said Marines and sailors have deployed out of Camp Pendleton at higher rates than any other American base, and their sacrifice must be honored.

So Ms. Warmen of San Clemente, you're grateful of Darrell Issa bringing up the U.S. debt with his Iraq War votes?  Greatful of the following record Issa made in Congress during 2003-2008?


Voted NO on removing US armed forces from Afghanistan. (Mar 2011)
Voted NO on redeploying US troops out of Iraq starting in 90 days. (May 2007)
Voted YES on declaring Iraq part of War on Terror with no exit date. (Jun 2006)
Voted YES on approving removal of Saddam & valiant service of US troops. (Mar 2004)
Voted YES on authorizing military force in Iraq. (Oct 2002)
Voted Yea (Passage) - HR 3087 - Requiring Reports from the Defense Department to Congress Regarding Withdrawal from Iraq
Voted Nay (Passage) - HR 2956 - Redeployment from Iraq Act
Voted Yea (Passage) - H Res 557 - War in Iraq Anniversary Resolution
Voted Nay (Amendment Vote) - H Amdt 672 - Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" After Military Review and Certification
Voted Nay (Passage) - HR 3159 - Mandatory Troop Rest Periods Between Deployments to Iraq
Yeah, I wonder if Ms. Warmen and her followers supported Darrell Issa's "Nay" vote on HR 3159, which required mandatory troop rest periods between deployments to Iraq.  

Seriously, what are we, stupid?



Amy Walker, the director of constituent services, said residents of the 49th district can now set up meetings with Issa’s staff where concerns can be addressed and casework, for members of the military, can be assessed and completed.

With the Orange County office open, Issa encouraged citizens to utilize the location as a resource. The office, located at 33282 Golden Lantern, Suite 102 in Dana Point, will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, and by appointment on all others. Issa’s Vista office, located at 1800 Thibodo Road, Suite 310, will also remain open.

Yeah, sure.  Concerns can be addressed for members of the military.  Like HELL they are thanks to Issa's Iraq War votes.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

If you can't stand to hear more of Darrell Issa's antics, keep the San Diego County Democratic Party busy since they're the most local and active Democratic Party nearby Darrell Issa's area of residence (not to mention his local office).

Make sure you mark down this information and pass it on to others for firing up the base in California's 49th Congressional District if you want to target Issa for re-election and get voter registration drives going.  If you can find someone in the CA-49 who can run against Issa in 2014, the more the merrier:
