Gibbs is referring to the memo because he/they want to stay on message and not give the media a sound bite and keep this thing going for another week. Why create a story when there isn't one? When the president was asked during the his oil spill presser about the "deal", he essentially dodged the question. Smart move. I think Joe Sestak is the best person to answer all the questions and he's doing that.

The mistake that was made, if any, was involving Bill Clinton. He's just an easy target. But from what I understand Bill Clinton and Joe Sestak have been close friends for years, so it makes sense that he was the messenger.

As far as arm twisting goes, I would say it's organizing your political party to maintain power and advance your agenda. Each party has that right to do that and should position themselves to be as powerful and effective as possible to serve their interests and the people they must answer to. As long as everything is done above board, let's play chess. There's nothing unethical, unusual, or as far as I can see, any impropriety occurred. The irony in all of this is that Sestak is probably more in line with Obama's views than Arlen Specter ever was, so it's still a win for the White House.

Anyway, 'nuff of that.

To me the whole meat of the matter is the fact the WH must have thought that Sestak had a good shot at winning the majority of the people's vote. They wanted their guy (Specter) to be the voice of the people instead. So, they tell Sestak not to run because we think you may win which means the majority of voters in your district wanted you to win, not the other guy. Does this happen all of the time? Without a doubt. Is it wrong? Without a doubt.

If this happens all the time without a doubt how is Lord Obama thwarting/circumventing the country's political process of public officials?

All of this is he said she said at best.

Now that's a first class felony. Let's hope Greer's children have been indoctrinated by Obama.

If he is guilty , aside from being a dumb ass ... the state < or Fed > should seize his assests and punish his sorry """ . Maybe politicians should have to wear stripes and have numbers issued as soon as they take office .... very sad

Well I'm a bit late but I'd have to say that the White House probably has a damn good track record of having felons working there. Whether or not charged/deemed guilty or not is a whole different issue.

Also, where in the Constitution are private businesses' hiring rules spelled out? For public officials...they are. For you...not.

Have some more Starbucks, Sadden, you're slipping.

You're right Buster, it isn't spelled out in the Constitution. It however grant congress the power to create laws and so they did. The chamber tasked by the Constitution to create laws spelled out through various Employment/Labor Acts what the hiring rules are for private businesses.


I'm not slipping, I'm sipping. Check this out, I stopped going to Starbucks and instead purchased a Bosch Tassimo Bosch Tassimo. I can brew Starbucks right at home for a $1.30 a cup. That shit is awesome yo...tell your friends about it.

p.s. Keep sniffing around, you'll discover my piss under a tree somewhere sooner or later.
