Of course the administration was blindsided. Does anyone think Netanyahu or other Israeli leaders would want to discuss this in advance with US officials? What are the chances that the US officials would keep these discussions quiet?

Not necessarily. Even the political appointees, like Holder, are working for all of us.

Or either Bush, or Reagan, or Ford or Nixon. No, it's only about the current occupants.

I remember the discussion about flag-burning being protected speech. "How can the government allow such an offensive act," my wife asked. Of cpurse this is the speech the First Amendment was explicitly trying to protect.
And what crimes is Issa supposedly acussed of? Maybe the "crime" of legislative oversite of the executive departments? I.E., doing his job?
Notice when the accusations against Nixon were piling up, some senior Rep leaders (including one who just recently died) took him aside and explained that the honorable thing would be to resign. Notice also Clinton and his aides had a rally after Impeachment in the House. Which course are the current Dems likely to take with Obama? IRS alone is worse than Monica or Watergate. Benghazi alone is worse than Monica or Watergate.
The answer is no. Show us you can spend the money effectively and you can continue to have most of the current programs, except those that are currently dysfunctional.

Does "a tranquil place" include a domestic political scene, where everyone gets along, debates the issues on the merits, has respect for their opponents?
Real Clear Politics shows a tie with toss-ups, or a Rep majority of two if forced to pick a winner in the toss-up races. Nate Silver, now of 538, show Dems with a slight edge.
Any chance some of Thad's Dem primary will vote for him in the General, maybe out of confusion?
RINOs still better than Dems.
