Talk has always been cheap, a concept Team Obama has never fully understood. They were going to be different … yes-sir-ee!
Our Poseur President and the fools who engineered his fraudulent election are now faced with a new reality. The Sestak bribe is one bribe that isn’t going away. The uproar, the comparisons with Watergate, all are staying around, and just like the BP oil spill, this is impossible to hide.
Let’s start by asking a few rhetorical questions that we already know the answers to.
1. If all of this were just noise and “inside Washington” politics, after weeks of stonewalling, why did Team Obama’s surrogate, White House Counsel Robert Bauer, make the announcement on the Friday afternoon of the Memorial Day weekend?
We all know the answer … because this is a big deal! Team Obama broke the law big time. What we have here, as the New York Times describes it here,
is a prima facie case of an attempted quid pro quo in violation of federal statute 18 U.S.C. 600 - a promise of an appointment to an Executive Branch position in return for the political act by Sestak to drop his primary challenge and pave the way for Specter’s nomination by the Democratic Party establishment.
It’s my guess that they thought they were going to get away with it, the way that have so many other questionable and downright illegal activities. Let’s be real, if Team Obama could put an Constitutionally ineligible fraud in the White House, what the hell was the big deal about another bribe? Right?
2. Are we really to believe that after months of Sestak stating he had been offered a high government position if he dropped out of the PA primaries, that the best response Brand Obama could come up with was ”Barack didn’t do it, it was Bill?” Really? Oh, and BTW, it wasn’t a paid high level position it was an unpaid position on some obscure committee. Oh ya, ‘this is really believable”, she said with as much sarcasm as she could muster!
3. If the Sestak offer was “no big deal” why was the Big Dawg Bill Clinton called in? This story smells to high heaven. Who wants to take bets that there wasn’t a Bill Clinton phone call to Sestak and if there was, the REAL story wasn’t given out to MSM on Friday. Sorry this is too cute by half and way too convenient!
4. Let’s assume for a moment that “everyone in Washington does business this way!” Is this a reason proffered for felony behavior? Everyone does it. The other night I heard the Governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell, say he had offered up bribes as well! Really? How much Kool-Aid do you think he drank before going on FOX?
5. Here’s another explanation of why the Team Obama states the Sestak bribery revelations are no big deal. Yes, there is a law (actually there are three, 18 U.S.C. § 600, 211, and 595) against promising something of value in exchange for a political appointment, but the law has never been enforced! Well, there you go … the law has never been enforced so Team Obama gets to play fast and loose!
Yes, boys ‘n girls what we have here is more selective adherence to the rule of law and to the Constitution. We now get to pick and choose those laws we like and have decided to follow.
