Huge mistake.  The left connects apologies with weakness.  Cummings was grandstanding and being obstructive to the investigation of the IRS.  With Issa's apology, Cummings theatrical antics prove hugely successful though anti-Constitutional.  And, the IRS' political vendetta goes on unhindered.

Issa was taking a beating in the media. Issa cherishes celebrity and media attention. I would guess that negative media attention deeply hurts Issa.

Issa has proven to be weak, and self serving.

They can't call Issa a racist now because he apologized. Anyone with half-a-bran can clearly see Cummings did not have a procedural question, he was playing lawyer and grandstanding for Lois Lerner, that is why she stayed with the nasty smug look on her face. Cummings was indeed in the wrong. He finally blurred out an idea -or something- after his hissy fit asking to basically do this in private. Which like it, or not is going against that the committee just adjourned a witness pleading the fifth. Cummings slipped in his idea to scape-goat his grand-standing partisan politics. If he really had an idea he could have spoken with Issa before or after the public hearing. He was reading a speech probably written by his master Obama.

The GOP-e seems very quick to apologize to the congressional black caucus, and therein lies the problem.

Cummings hissy fit was shut down even though the pubs are PC cowards.

Agreed. Why are we apologizing to racists?  I've missed something somewhere.

Yep...

Megyn Kelly was grilling him last night about this.. Issa stated the hearing was a "continuation" of a prior hearing and in the prior hearing Cummings had plenty of time to speak his piece... that when she invoked the 5th again there was no reason for the hearing and he gavelled it out... he said Cummings was grandstanding on purpose..... 

Frankly I am sick of the cowards in the GOPe

Not sure, but it was clear she didn't want to hear what Issa told her

It is a mixed bag with her, at times she is fine, even wonderful.  But other times she comes off as nothing but an establishment shill.  I thought that she was horrible on election night 2012.

Issa should have told Cummings to take a long walk off a short pier and refused to say another word.

At the next hearings, watch Cummings cause all kinds of trouble because now no one can stop him.

Cummings was placed in the seat to do what he is doing... cause trouble.
