First off, here's Dave Peiser's Candidate Statement. The nice thing about this statement is that while Peiser doesn't attack Darrell Issa or any one in the Republican Party here in this statement, he does however mention things progressive Democrats and Democrats in general (as well as the general public) care about, as well as representing the business community in California's 49th Congressional District and listening to input, working on solutions to address problems.
UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE, 49TH DISTRICTPretty straight forward right? But compare Peiser's Candidate Statement towards Darrell Issa's statement and you get a completely different message.
NAME: DAVID PEISER PARTY: DEMOCRATIC
OCCUPATION: Local Business Owner AGE: 53
We deserve a Congressional representative who listens to our
We cannot continue to support those who put partisanship before
what is best for our Country.
We need a government that works for everyone, not just a
privileged few. America need not be a country of haves and havenots.
Instead, we must elect those who believe that every American
deserves the opportunity to thrive.
A District resident for 25 years, I have an MBA, national and
international business experience and a successful local business.
I have traveled the tough road and put in the great effort required
for a small business to prosper.
I have seen how effective government policies can have a
positive impact on jobs and the economy. However, we must elect
representatives who are serious about creating jobs for people
other than themselves.
As your Congressman, I will work to strengthen our nation and
to staunchly protect individual's rights. I will safeguard Social
Security, not hand it over to Wall Street. I will strengthen Medicare,
not "voucherize" it. I will honor our veterans and military with deeds,
not just words. I will work collaboratively for every individual's
benefit and provide leadership that assures a better future for all.
I will spend time in the 49th District. I will get to know you, your
neighborhoods, your businesses and your concerns - then work
I will represent the values of the people in our communities.
I will be grateful to obtain your vote. Visit PeiserForCongress.com

Here's Issa doing his very best to pitch himself to Orange County voters in CA-49 and failing miserably at doing so without being partisan:
UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE, 49TH DISTRICTDoes anyone want to call Darrell Issa's office? Number is (760) 598-3535.
NAME: DARRELL ISSA PARTY: REPUBLICAN
OCCUPATION: Member, U.S. House of Representatives
As Chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform
Committee, I am committed to restoring accountability and
transparency to our federal government.
I have led investigations targeting waste, fraud and abuse in
government and corrupt practices in corporate America. I wrote
legislation to reduce the size of the federal workforce, remove
Washington regulation that hurts our ability to create jobs, preserve
the essential services of the Post Office and protect the privacy of
our electronic communications.
Our investigations exposed how the IRS wrongfully targeted the
American people; what really happened the night a terrorist attack
killed American personnel in Benghazi, Libya; and brought to light
the fatal mismanagement of the federal law enforcement operation
known as "Fast and Furious" that allowed thousands of illegally
purchased weapons to cross our borders into the hands of violent
Mexican drug cartels.
Each day people in our community express frustration with a
government that is increasingly unresponsive and at the same
time, more intrusive in our lives. Our government has grown
unwieldy and it often fails to carry out its most basic functions.
We deserve an efficient, effective government that preserves our
freedoms and empowers us to succeed. These principles guide
my decisions. Our policies should support the growth of jobs and
small businesses, not government - which I seek to make better,
It is my honor to serve you in Congress and I appreciate
your vote. For more information, please visit my website

Anyway, as you can see, obviously a lot of propaganda in Issa's Candidate Statement but that's what he chose to include. We can already sense that he fails to have learned the message of networking in the business industry, which is to connect with people and ask to them: How can I serve as a referral?
In other words, networking in the business industry does not mean you approach things with a "what's in it for me" perspective but more of "what's in it for you" perspective.
But no matter what, Darrell Issa won't let anyone get in his way of receiving campaign contributions and fundraising for the GOP so as long as he continues to mention Benghazi, the IRS and his investigations, he'll do what whatever it takes to make his Candidate Statements and anything else partisan and divisive regardless if anyone disagrees with him.
Can't stand anymore Darrell Issa? Democratic Candidate Dave Peiser is running and he has endorsements by the CA State Democratic Party, San Diego APWU and many local, active Democratic clubs.
