Remember that positively desperate (not to mention deceptive) mailer GOP Rep. Darrell Issa pushed out depicting him and President Obama as besties? Apparently, Obama does too, calling it both "shameless" and "the definition of chutzpah" during a DCCC fundraiser Sunday in La Jolla, California. It seems Obama isn't all that charmed by Issa's election-inspired conversion after the California representative made it his primary goal in life to repeatedly launch baseless investigations into the Obama administration and question the president's citizenship. Edward-Isaac Dovere writes:
Obama said Issa’s “primary contribution to the United States Congress has been to obstruct and to waste taxpayer dollars on trumped-up investigations that have led nowhere.”
Obama called out to Democratic candidate Doug Applegate, the former Marine colonel who’s challenging Issa, sitting at one of the tables in front of him.
“I think somebody called Darrell Issa — was this you, Doug? — that Darrell Issa was Trump before Trump,” Obama said.
Issa returned fire Monday, saying that he was "disappointed but not surprised that the president, in a political speech, continues to deny accountability for the serious scandals that happened under his watch."
Right. So serious, in fact, that despite wasting millions in taxpayer dollars, Issa turned up absolutely zip.
