GOP plans wave of White House probes

I agree with what Issa is saying privately: "Privately, Issa’s staff is afraid of taking it too far. The backlash against Republican investigations in the Newt Gingrich era is fresh in his mind." I think the worst tact to be taken would be to give the MSM daily fodder to criticize the "ultra right wing extremists". Go after the big things in a systematic and professional way with no nit-picking.

This article may be a bit premature, since it all depends on the Republicans gaining control of the House and maybe the Senate. As they say in Chicago, in November, vote well and vote often. lol

If President Barack Obama needed any more incentive to go all out for Democrats this fall, here it is: Republicans are planning a wave of committee investigations targeting the White House and Democratic allies if they win back the majority.

Everything from the microscopic — the New Black Panther party — to the massive –- think bailouts — is on the GOP to-do list, according to a half-dozen Republican aides interviewed by POLITICO.

Republican staffers say there won’t be any self-destructive witch hunts, but they clearly are relishing the prospect of extracting information from an administration that touts transparency.

And a handful of aggressive would-be committee chairmen — led by Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Lamar Smith (R-Texas) — are quietly gearing up for a possible season of subpoenas not seen since the Clinton wars of the late 1990s.
