I didn’t think so.
Do they really expect us to believe that they’d send a former President to offer a symbolic non-paying board job to Sestak in exchange for him sitting out the PA Dem primary?
The only thing that surprises me is that Clinton was involved. The fact that Rahmbo asked him to do it confirms my suspicions about who spearheaded the effort. Remember, there are still questions about Rahmbo’s involvement in the whole Blago pay-for-Senate seat drama. Are the puzzle pieces finally being put into place on this Chicago on Potomac Way administration with the American people and – gasp – the MSM?
And isn’t it hilarious how this has all played out? Just like the MA Dems and how their game-playing with the Governor’s right to appoint a Senator to replace one in an emergency situation, the national/PA Dem strategy on the Specter seat has so far failed spectularly – for them and Specter. Specter becomes an official turncoat by flipping sides because he sees the writing on the wall in a potential primary match up against Pat Toomey and thinks he’d be free and clear in a Dem primary and would sail on to victory . The WH pledges him their “full support.” In the middle of all this, Congressman Sestak decides he wants to challenge Specter for that seat. The WH, trying to avoid a potentially nasty primary battle, sends out Bubba to offer an allegedly “non-paying” board position to Sestak. Sestak admits in February that he was offered a position but is mum on what it was and who offered it. The MSM drops the ball on it until after Sestak handily defeated Specter in the primary and now it’s become major news, with both Sestak and the WH resorting to do a statement drop on the Friday before a holiday weekend. No explanation on the lunch Bubba had with Obama yesterday, nor the call made by the WH to Sestak’s brother this week.
This is the “change” Obama promised the American people?
