Blagojevich first, NOW Sestak; I never had conversations with that man.

Well, the whole administration starts with the Blagojevich debacle.

Let us start out with this article-

Blagojevich lawyers want Obama subpoena
Claims president has 'direct knowledge of the Senate seat allegation'

"President Barack Obama has direct knowledge of the Senate seat allegation," Blagojevich's 11-page motion filed with U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel said.

There was no allegation in the court papers of any wrongdoing on Obama's part.

It would be extraordinary if a sitting president were subpoenaed to take the witness stand in a Chicago political corruption trial or any criminal trial. Zagel has not indicated how he might respond to the unusual request.

Now we have this-

Bill Clinton's Sestak Approach: Break The Law

The conversation was meant to keep the congressman out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary against Sen. Arlen Specter. He said that he never considered any position the White House was willing to offer. The White House says it used the former president as a go-between to try and avoid a messy primary.

I do not even know what to say.

Here is the excuse being forwarded-"well this is how things are done".

Let us take a look at the laws broken.


§ 7323. Political activity authorized; prohibitions

(a) Subject to the provisions of subsection (b), an employee may take an active part in political management or in political campaigns, except an employee may not—
(1) use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election;

So, the Obama Administration and William Clinton pointedly broke this statute.

I wonder if Clinton is going to say " "I" never had conversations with that man."

Oh well, I guess those that are above the law can do anything they want right?

Obama has such a well structured corrupt machine in place that it would be nearly impossible to ever expose anything he does.

He could get away with murder, oh wait he has!

He is so corrupt it is disgusting. He doesn't deserve to represent the great people of this republic, he doesn't even deserve to be a bathroom attendent in a restraunt.

Thanks Misoir.

I think he deserves one of his nicknames-Bush III

I guess it all depends on what your definition of "is" is.

Still one of the best lines. But in this case wouldn't it be Obama saying "I never had job offerings with that man."

This needs to be investigated and results need to be determined. But it still kills me that a job offer as a bribe is illegal and the bribes and deals done to get the votes for HCR were somehow not. Even when the bill itself is of questionable constitutionality.

Well, for those in DC, crime is relative.

Relatively illegal for us is not the same as relatively illegal for them.

It is kind of ironic that the government and those in it, apply the law as they see fit on themselves but we the people get all of them applied to us evenly.

We all know they are criminal but we allow it to continue.

Thanks for the comment.

At least not around here anyway...

Edit to add: Maybe you scared them all off.
