It’s tempting to venture into calling what may be happening to President Obama and the Democrats poetic justice, as more is revealed about the White House, Sestak, Clinton connection.
Clinton and Sestak
Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to dig into the offering to Sestak of ‘an unpaid job’ as the head of a Presidential commission, if he’d drop his Senate bid in favor of Arlen Specter. The White House has worked quickly to distance the President from the possible backlash if, as some suggested, the law had been broken.
It might be noted here that Obama’s White House moved much faster covering Obama’s butt than they did responding to the disaster in the Gulf. Commission? More likely what he was offered was Secretary of the Navy. There are, of course, many vociferous denials coming from the left as they prepare to circle the wagons. Not the best move in an election year perhaps… sure to draw fire from Republicans and pointed questions from voters as well. What did you know and when did you know it?
The left excoriated George Bush unmercifully for years after nine eleven. The LSM (Lame Stream Media) is also falling all over themselves to minimize the impact of the Sestak story. But as we say in the industry, this story has legs and we haven’t seen or heard the last of it.
What we do know is that the call went out to Bill Clinton from Rahm Emanuel to ‘influence’ Joe Sestak, a sitting Representative, to drop his US Senate aspirations in favor of the Administration’s pick, Arlen Specter. Interfering with a candidate and promising favor, paid or not, is in violation of the statute.
Can’t wait to see where this one goes….

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Like a lot of disaffected Republicans, I spent some time watching the Libertarian Party’s Presidential debate last night. I say “some” time, but that might have been a little bit of an exaggeration – really, I managed to survive about 10 minutes of a deeply disconcerting experience that nonetheless completely met my expectations. Of the five candidates on stage, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Are the pressures of trying to run an actual Presidential campaign starting to get to Trump’s people? Seems some of them are taking a page out of their bosses book. Trump, who regularly engages in conspiracy theories, is quite the role model for such absurdities. From The NY Times: A constant stream of changes and scuffles are unsettling Donald | Read More »
