California Republican Representative Darrell Issa says that CNN got it wrong when he claimed President Obama was corrupt — that they somehow were the only ones that misunderstood what he meant when he made claims on the Rush Limbaugh show back in October. First of all Darrell, you were on the Limbaugh show — you knew exactly what you were saying and to the audience that was receiving your message.
But trying to claim that Obama was "one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times" is somehow the same as " 'Corrupt', or 'corrupted' or 'failure', it's no different than a disc drive that's given you some bits that are wrong." What sort of moron makes that type of comment after having had weeks to prepare a response? (On a side note Mr. Issa, you should fire your handlers because you were ill-prepared to talk with John King from CNN.) Calling someone corrupt is personal and suggests criminal wrong-doing (use a dictionary next time) and a corrupt disk drive is one that has had data erased, trampled on or otherwise disturbed and rendered inaccessible. Hmmmm, just described what happens to well-intending politicians once elected to office!
Making those claims without ANY evidence or corroboration, and even before being sworn in as the Chairman of the Oversight Committee – another politician that makes the American people out to be mindless followers. Not so Mr. Issa. And all you had to say was that you used the word improperly — King gave you two opportunities to save face and say that, or that you were sorry in some way and you totally avoided addressing your error. So much promise. What a shame.
