    ISSA: We are going to miss Tim Russert when it comes to the people on both sides of the issue of why we have $5 oil ó $5 gasoline and $135 oil. I think Tim Russert would have been just the right guy to hold people accountable, who would talk about the 68 million acres that are, quote, inactive, while in fact 41 million are under current lease and use and are producing millions of barrels of oil and natural gas a day.

    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Seems to be an admirer of Russerts. Kind of a stretch to say he's politicizing his death.

    When I was a kid, we were the United States of America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Now, we're America, Land of the Sheep and Home of the NaÔve.

    Did you actually watch the entire video to see how many times he used Timís name?

    Were any Democrats politicizing his death? What, exactly, went on before or after the video?

    Given only that video, and the limited context of Rep. Issa's statements, I would have to say it was an inappropriate time to raise such concerns. Of course, Thinkprogress is a left-wing website dedicated to attacking Republicans and throwing out Democrat talking points, so I wouldn't trust their assessment to be fair and unbiased.

    EVERY comment he makes about the late Mr. Russert was positive. I say again, he seems to be an admirer of Mr. Russerts. Do you have comprehension problems?

    He's a member of Congress, so that goes w/o saying.
