President Obama said Thursday that the White House is preparing to issue a formal explanation regarding the allegation that it offered Rep. Joe Sestak a job to drop out of the Democratic primary race against Sen. Arlen Specter.
The president, addressing the matter in public for the first time since the Pennsylvania congressman leveled the claim in February, said the statement should answer questions about the claim and insisted "nothing improper" happened.
Obama says "there will be an official response shortly" on the question of whether his White House offered Joe Sestak a job to prevent him from running against Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter in a Democratic primary. But "I can assure the public that nothing improper took place," he says.

Its never the matter in question. Its always the lies afterwards. The initial offer would be excused as the way things are done, in the heat of the moment, etc. Lying afterward is simple.
Obama is just like Nixon. Tight inner circle, mistrusting of others, awkward in front of the press absent prepared notes, paranoid, buggered up childhood, comfortable using thugs. Just like Nixon.
Rahm = G. Gorden Liddy. The difference is that Liddy had the stones to go to jail rather than talk. Rahm will take his tough guy act and cry like a baby.

Much ado about nothing.
(Reuters) - The White House acknowledged on Friday that it tried to get Representative Joe Sestak to drop his Senate bid in exchange for an unpaid job with the administration, but said an internal review concluded it broke no laws.
