Joe Sestak (D - Penn).
Amazing how nobody can get his story straight and just how divergent those stories have become. First Congressman Joe Sestak openly brags about how couldn't be bought off with a job offered by the Obama White House if he would just fold his tent in his bid to knock off incumbent Senator Arlen Specter (D...no, R...no, no, D - PA). And not just any job, mind you. Secretary of the U.S. Navy, he claims. No small potatoes here..
Then, in the blue corner, Team Obama claims that no, Joe's just a little over his head. He was never offered a job to drop out of the race. Because Mr. Harvard Law Review knows that such an offer is akin to bribery, a felony. An impeachable offense if the Congress deems it such. So no, Joe was mistaken. Nobody in the Obama White House offered him a job. That's the ticket. Move on folks, nothing to see here..
Now enter Slick Willie Clinton (D - Playboy Mansion) to smooth over the mess that just wouldn't go away. Who better to take the rap for the whole mess than the disbarred, congenital-liar former President? Now Obama/Clinton want us to believe it was Clinton that went to Sestak to offer the unpaid position as member of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. Quite a detour from Secretary of the Navy it appears. Add to it the punchline that Joe wasn't even eligible for the position he was reportedly offered (by being a sitting member of Congress), according to Byron York of The Washington Examiner. .
But Joe has taken the high moral ground by saying "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.” Apparently BJ Clinton would never be confused with Don Corleone: Clinton makes an offer that Joe CAN refuse. And Sestak's still breathing days later. It appears the Clinton charm has worn off over the years..
Unfortunately for Mr. Sestak, this story will not go away, as it has sucked in both a former president and the current POTUS. And either the Congressman is telling the truth & both Presidents are lying (hardly a stretch on both), or he is lying about the nature of the job offer and is now open to an array attacks by his November opponent, Pat Toomey. Even worse, the lamestream media is asking some tough questions, as White House spokesman Robert Gibbs tries to change the subject as quick as possible. Next step in the DemocRAT formula to get past this: pin blame on George W Bush. After all, he's traveled through Pennsylvania numerous times, so his fingerprints have to be on this scandal somehow. Joe has just been too slow off the draw to shift the blame away from himself . He should learn a lesson from his potential Senate colleague, Richard Blumenthal, who knows the drill and isn't afraid to go on the attack himself. After all, like Sestak, he knows how deadly combat can be, having seen it firsthand..
Joe Sestak is still playing the political game here like it's for chairman of the Philly city council. Instead he's nominee of the DemocRAT Party for U.S. Senate, a seat his party can ill-afford to lose. And on a personal level, he's making this a contest between himself and the Chicago Machine, which has squashed much bigger bugs than Mr. Sestak in the past as a matter of routine. Unless Joe gets his story straight with the Obama admin & learns how to play ball, he can look forward to a nice spot underneath the Obama bus. Enjoy the ride, Joe.
