Sestak And The White House Release Their Statements - Pure Horse Manure

Joe Sestak got the word from the White House, they went over their stories and just released coordinated statements. Here's Sestak's and I hope you're wearing your boots because this is pretty deep:

Last summer, I received a phone call from President Clinton. During the course of the conversation, he expressed concern over my prospects if I were to enter the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate and the value of having me stay in the House of Representatives because of my military background. He said that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had spoken with him about my being on a Presidential Board while remaining in the House of Representatives. I said no. I told President Clinton that my only consideration in getting into the Senate race or not was whether it was the right thing to do for Pennsylvania working families and not any offer. The former President said he knew I'd say that, and the conversation moved on to other subjects.

There are many important challenges facing Pennsylvania and the rest of the country. I intend to remain focused on those issues and continue my fight on behalf of working families.

Ummm...I seem to remember that Sestak originslly said back in February that "somebody in the White House" contacted him about the post. And when asked about the job ( not a term customarily used to describe a post on an 'advisory council) in response reiterated that yes, it was a high position.

Bill Clinton is not "somebody in the White House" the last time I looked, and a place on an advidsory board is not a 'high position'. So was Sestak lying then...or is he lying now?

If Sestak was exaggerating all this time, why didn’t the White House expose him months ago when it would have embarrassed him and perhaps helped drag Specter to a primary win?

And why get Clinton involved just to offer an advisory board position? And how is that still not a bribe, as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 211? What was Sestak going to be, a freaking intern?

And if this was all it was, why couldn't it have been detailed by Sestak weeks ago? Why wait? Why did the White House call Sestak's brother? Why time it all together? Why wouldn't Obama or Gibbs answer questions about this simply and directly?

The answer,of course, is that it took weeks to tie everybody's story together and figure out who was going to get what in exchange for engaging in this coverup.

The White House is trying to bury this over Memorial Day weekend and I'm sure their shills in the dinosaur media will play along, Mr. Bill's involvement only raises the stakes to get to the bottom of this. It simply doesn't add up.

And this isn't over by any means.

please helps me write more gooder!

"and this isn't over by any means."

I'm sorry its over. Whether this was done by Democrats or Republicans it is equally deplorable. Unfortunately to think its not over is simply wishful thinking. There will be no further investigation by any one in the Government because there is no one to investigate it. The Democrats aren't going to want to do it. The Republicans don't have the resources to investigate it even if they particularly wanted to, which they don't. They'd rather focus on being "bipartisian." Furthermore the media will be satisfied with the explanation and the American people have bigger problems they are concerned this. As such, I'm sorry Rob. This ones over.

Now what it isn't over by any means is the possibility of a trial and convictions being sought against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. While the public is largely dissatisfied with the performance of Barack Obama and the Democrats, it seems they largely don't hate him personally. In fact, they really have nothing against him personally. Right now a sizable portion of them simply don't think he's doing a good job as President.

Contrast this with George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and other Bush Administration officials. The public was not only dissatisfied with their performace as a Presiental team by the time they left office but they had come to despise them as people. As such, a conviction against them would be quite easy to obtain.

Please understand I'm not necessarily saying these people should be convicted for any thing. It's simply the geopolitical realities. Frankly, I'm not sure why the Democrats have not bought formal charges. I think they are saving this for when they may need it. For example, a show try against President Bush and his team could be used at some point by the Democrats in the future to distract the public from their own incompetence.

To recap, this one is over. The Democrats aren't going to want to investigate further, the Republican leadership does not want any part of this. They'd rather be bipartisian and some of them have their own impropieties as well, the few Republicans who might want to pursue this don't have the resources to do it, and the media will be satisfied and, as such, will see no reason to investigate this. While this one's over, investigations and potential prosecutions agaisnt President Bush and members of his team are not over by any means. In other words, we are going to have a trial against President Bush and members of his team before we are going to have further investigations of this.

Actually I probably should rephrase what I wrote. There may be some appetite for additional investigation into this IF the public develops an active dislike of this President and his team. Right now I just don't see that. While many people don't think he is doing a good job as President, they don't hate him personally at this point.

This is how it began with President Bush and his team. People were first disatisfied with his performance as President but they had nothing against him personally then as time went on and President Bush and his team continued to disappoint the voters a majority of people began to universially despsie him.

In the case of President Bush the news media acted to whip up a frenzy of hatred against President Bush and his team. In the case of President Obama, the media is not acting in this manner. As such, I don't envision hatred of President Obama rising to the level that it has for President Bush. Perhaps it could, if something occurrs that affects the entire country that I'm not anticipating were to happen.

An example might be something like the recent oil spill that affects the entire country. I can envision hatred in the areas affected by this oil spill rising to the same level hatred of President Bush is at but this oil spill is unlikely to affect the entire country. The event would have to be something not anticipated that affects the entire country. (A terrorist attack or invasion by a foreign power won't work for this. It can easily be blamed on the previous administration and the oil spill is unlikely to do it either because it is unlikely to affect the entire country.)

From rereading my post, I observe I may been a little to harsh. If I offended you in any way, I apologize. You too have a nice weekend and happy Memorial Day!!
God bless you and yours!!

If "Sestak-Gate" does go further, I will come here and admit I was wrong.
