And this time he is taking no prisoners.

“As far as I can tell, [Darrell] Issa’s primary contribution to the United States Congress has been to obstruct and to waste taxpayer dollar on trumped-up investigations that have led nowhere. And this is now a guy who, because poll numbers are bad, has sent out brochures with my picture on them, touting his cooperation on issues with me,” Obama said Sunday evening. “Now, that is the definition of chutzpah.”
Needless to say, I’m loving the new unleashed Obama and am hoping his campaigning will really help the dems in the above races. He is also going to be campaigning for down ballot legislative races.
As Politico reports:
As Democrats aim to capitalize on this year’s Republican turmoil and start building back their own decimated bench, former Attorney General Eric Holder will chair a new umbrella group focused on redistricting reform — with the aim of taking on the gerrymandering that’s left the party behind in statehouses and made winning a House majority far more difficult.
The new group, called the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, was developed in close consultation with the White House. President Barack Obama himself has now identified the group — which will coordinate campaign strategy, direct fundraising, organize ballot initiatives and put together legal challenges to state redistricting maps — as the main focus of his political activity once he leaves office.
The Republicans are not going to be happy with that at all. Evil chuckle.
Update: I forgot Samantha Bee.
