He was doomed to fail before he was elected. Which is sad for the historic First non-white-male President. But i do believe that to be true. Obama could have done everything right, although he has not, and he still could not have met the expectations the LEFT laid at his feet.

    SAD in a way.

    Anything short of complete social and economic "justice".... funded by those other than themselves.... will always disappoint leftist's. The delusions they held (hold) is that Obama would (will) bring such to raptuous fruition, and those that actually pay the freight would (will) simply roll over without a fight.

    Re: White House Asked Bill Clinton to Urge Sestak to Drop Out of Senate Race

    Here is something to rattle around in your brains:

    Why would a president in power ask a former president to offer a candidate in a Senate race, a non-profit job to pull-out? Does he not have enough staffers to accomplish any such lowly task? Not just any President mind you, but a guy he was nervous about, and for good reason, as Cliton is a perjurer and is the definition of oily.

    Where has former POTUS done this in the past?

    In the end it really does not matter because they admitted to a job offer and the Kane/Sestak interview reveals it was a high level job offered from the White House.

    .

    Re: White House Asked Bill Clinton to Urge Sestak to Drop Out of Senate Race

    I'm trying to find a link to it, but Issa was on Fox and made a comment that Sestak couldn't be on a Commission like the one claimed and also be a member of the House.

    Anyone hear something like that or did I mishear him?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That would be interesting.

    In 2005 Axelrod wrote an article defending the type of behavior exhibited by Team Obama.
    The apple doesn't fall far from the thug's tree as they say in Chicago.

    But now that they took the boy out of Chicago, they also took Chicago out of the boy??? Riiiiiiiiiight...

    Link to the article is here:A Well-oiled Machine - Chicago Tribune

    I would like a Patrick Fitzgerald type prosecutor look into this. Someone that is like a rabid Pit Bull. Jaws locked on, and unwilling to let go until he has satisfied his thirst for flesh and blood... or... using Obama Administration terminology... we should have someone keep their boot on the neck of the administration until we get answers.

    All the answers.
    Until this felony is cleaned up.

    What's that saying about goose and gander?

    And the following video will be enough to make the Democrats puke:

    Here you go Vic, with Ed Rendell on FOXNEWS Sunday:

    The Skit starts at 1:20. Rendell first to bat.

    Sestak's bit starts at 3:00

    Sestak's money shot comes around the 3:50 mark... should watch the bit before with Rendell, he tries, but only serves to show how true professionals handle such situations.

    Had to howl... CLINTON signed the law into effect... ROTLMFAO...

    I had a good chuckle at Rendell's comment about Obama bringing a new level of ethics to Washington - as being unquestionable. However, let's just bulletize some not so good things that have occurred.

    - Sestak initially went on record in February 2010 that he was "offered a job" by someone in the White House to not run for Senate
    - Gibbs for the next month had no comment when asked repetedly about it
    - Sestak was asked then numerous times in April - May and affirmed his initial affirmative response and characterized it as "honest"
    - Finally about a week ago, Obama was asked at his first press conference in 305 days since taking office, that the White House staff will respond
    - The response identified that Bill Clinton as an intermediary from Rham Emmanuel, proposed a non-paying appointed job to Sestak in what Sestak claims was a 30-50 second phone call.
    - It turns out that if true, Clinton's offer was invalid as Sestak could not take that position due to the bill that Bill Clinton himself signed when he was President making the offer invalid

    This just doesn't pass the smell test and I believe - there is enough smoke here to warrant a full and independent investigation. Why offer Sestak a job he couldn't take? Why offer him an "unpaid" job? Was Bill Clinton REALLY involved or was he brought in at the last minute to divert attention from the White House? What was said at the meeting between Obama and Clinton just days before the WH release information on the Sestak offer?

    What I don't understand is -- there were independent investigations with Bush - ie., the Valerie Plame incident and the firing of the State Attorney's. Why shouldn't there be one here when there is a question as to the legality of actions taken? Isn't it better to not stonewall and simply come out with the information? Doesn't stonewalling for 2 months by Gibbs heighten the curiosity and perception of impropriety by the White House and / or it's staff?

    Politically I think the Obama's and the administration staff are finally being seen as what they are --- the same politicians and the same secrecy as any other Presidency. The idea that Obama's Administration is somehow far more ethical is preposterous. Simply saying it, and repeating it ad nauseum doesn't make it so and Obama's finally starting to wear thin even with the prized MSM who dearly want him to be everything he claims. The disappointment is getting quite thick and I think we'll see the fractures start to widen as this summer continues through to the fall elections which I believe will further dent the WH hold on the narrative story they want to tell.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hmmm, what are the odds? You look to Fixed Noise for your news and wonder if you got bad info?

    As Rendell said, this is acceptable politics. It happens all the time.

    As my right wing boys like to say...

    There's nothing here folks. Carry on.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    YouTube - So Who Is Wrong?!

    .
    Who knows if more will come of this issue. (my suspicions is leaning more and more towards 'probably')

    But there is a certain rich irony to the possibility that Fitzgerald could get brought into this as the investigator. Fitzgerald is the one who took Scooter Libby to a conviction. For those who remember, the conviction wasn't for the actual misdeeds themselves. It was for lying to the investigators.

    This Sestak case has the potential to evolve into something similar. (With the question as to whether he was even eligible for the "offered unpaid adviser" position being the new elephant in the room)

    Think the WH is in the awkward position of either defending an earlier explanation that takes a stretch of the imagination to believe....Or they are going to have to start making "adjustments" to the story, which could/would really light up those already cynical....

    That was a pretty big jerk on your part. Hope you didn't pull anything too badly.

    Chris Wallace, son of Mike Wallace, Harvard Grad. REGISTERED DEMOCRAT.
    Was he delivering bad info when he ran Meet the Press and worked for NBC?
    Every time I see your name on a post I start singing You're So Lame to Carly Simon's famous tune.

    CLINTON SIGNED THE LAW BROKEN INTO EXISTENCE... ROTFLMFAO... That is poetic justice.
    Two Constitutional lawyers that can't find the right side of the law... Jeezuz is that hilarious.

    When you create law like the one created, it is to stop an activity by making it punishable.
    Just as Dems pushed for the sexual harassment laws that snagged Clinton... LOL.

    What we have here is interesting, ACCORDING TO YOU THESE LAWS DO NOT EXIST FOR DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTS!!! THEY ARE KINGS, TZARs or CHICAGO THUGS.

    Now, to Rendell. Did you notice he did not offer a job?????????????????????????????????
    dOH... DID YOU????????????????????????????
    Let me repeat. Rendell did not offer a job.
    He said... see me later... BIG DIFFERENCE.

    Now go back to reading your favorite comic book... Rules for Radikals.

    This is going to get more interesting... much more interesting.
