Skip to comments.About that Sestak attempted bribe, White House says 'trust us!'

"Lawyers in the White House and others have looked into conversations that were had with Congressman Sestak," Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said Sunday on "Face the Nation" on CBS. "And nothing inappropriate happened."
"Improper or not, did you offer him a job in the administration?" asked the host, Bob Schieffer.
"I'm not going to get further into what the conversations were," Mr. Gibbs replied. "People that have looked into them assure me that they weren't inappropriate in any way."
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the "trust us" response from the White House has not exactly put the matter to rest. With Mr. Sestak's victory over Mr. Specter in last week's primary, the questions have returned with intensity, only to remain unanswered. Mr. Gibbs deflected questions 13 times at a White House briefing last week just two days after the primary. Mr. Sestak, a retired admiral, has reaffirmed his assertion without providing any details, like who exactly offered what job.
You will recall that this is exactly the same way the White House handled allegations about their role in the selling of Obama's senate seat that led to the impeachment of Rod Blagojevich. A "thorough" internal review by the White House was conducted and they, in effect, cleared themselves of wrongdoing.
Of course, at that time, the press was willing to go along with Obama. Will they today?
There doesn't appear to be any urgency from the media to get to the bottom of this story. This leads one to believe that any ideas we might have entertained that the press was falling out of love with the president were greatly exaggerated.
Trust is not a word to ever be uttered by these thugs. It’s like trusting the Gestapo to protect you.
Chuck Todd was really defensive of O and media this am on Morning Joe, he said Slestack simply heard wrong.
Just curious, why does Rush call Chuck Todd “F Chuck Todd”?
And the MSM socialists gladly defend Obama. They are the Obama defense team. happily parroting the White House ‘spin’ daily.
Nixon could have skated on the whole Watergate thing. Could have called an internal investigation, waited a few months, and then announced that nothing inappropriate happened.
Where’s the special prosecutor?
Trust me officer. I have reviewed my speedometer and I can assure you that I never went over 55.
“Chuck Todd was really defensive of O and media this am on Morning Joe, he said Slestack simply heard wrong.”
I saw that. Dumb Chuck was getting pretty animated. Chuck the commie was really reaching, going for Bush administration equivalencies, which there were none, and then playing the game of supposing what really happened, rather than asking tough questions.
Dumb Chuck really rankled at the suggestion that the State Controlled Media wasn’t investigating this with vigor, as they would have if it were the Bush administration. Joe then let Chuck off the hook by saying Chuck was digging, but no one else was!
It was disgusting.
Also, this supposedly competent cabal in the White House allowed Sestak to repeatedly make this claim throughout the primary campaign without response, now finds irtself having to defend by calling its Senate candidate a liar. Yup the nation is in competent hands alright.
They'd be squealing like stuck pigs if the shoe were on the other foot. And we all know it.
It looks like Todd "mis-spoke" because the story out from the White House is:
But the White House wants everyone who suspects that something untoward, or even illegal, might have happened to rest easy: though it still will not reveal what happened, the White House is reassuring skeptics that it has examined its own actions and decided it did nothing wrong. Whatever it was that it did.
So, Todd better get it straight...it is Not that Slestack heard wrong. After all, the administration would not want to confuse the public, and cloudy up all the water with different excuses on this subject. After all, this is a TRANSPARENT Administration, LOL.
Either way, it shold completely nullify Sestak’s senate run. If he’s telling the truth bash him for being involved in an illegal scheme. If he’s lying then call him on that.
White House says ‘trust us. LOL
