Skip to comments.Issa: Sestak scandal could be Obama's 'Watergate'
Posted on 05/27/2010 3:58:11 PM PDT by Nachum
An e-mail from Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-Calif.) campaign suggested Wednesday that the controversy over Rep. Joe Sestak's (D-Pa.) alleged administration job offer could be President Barack Obama's Watergate scandal.
In an e-mail with the subject line "The Sestak Affair - Obama's Watergate?", the ranking member on the Oversight and Government Reform committee focused on "long-standing questions" about the offer Sestak says was made to him to urge him to drop out of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary.

The list, ping
Has to become an issue first.
Let’s hope so.
I told my cousin 3 months ago he was the Democrat version of Nixon.
They need to lock up all correspondece that is in writing. They can weasle out of it otherwise.
Just tell me it’s impeachable...I need hope and change...
BLAGO seemed like a kook, until today. Starting today, Blago is 100% credible.
Now, if Blago says Rahm tried to bribe me, Rahm tried to sell my Senate seat, Blago has credibility, because theres a retired 3-star Admiral (SESTAK) on TV accusing Rahm/Omoslem of similar felonies.
Plus, Omoslem also apparently tried to bribe Romanoff and Dodd.
The best part of this will be Omoslem and his commie propaganda machine (MSM) throwing mud at a 3-star US Navy Admiral.... calling him a liar, a scumbag, trying to smear him. Itll be hilarious.
I cant wait till Blago writes a book about all this. The WH knows Blago is a crazy Serb, and hell take them all down if hes messed with. Suddenly, hes not a nut, hes another guy caught in Omoslems Chicago Mafia Machine, just like Sestak.
Folks, dont carpool with Blago, b/c I suspect hes about to have an accident. Perhaps hell overdose on aspirin.
But before the WH kills Blago, lets get Blago back on TV, do some interviews with him about WH crimes!
sestak dies before zero is ever indicted ... period ... very sad, but very true
Don’t go to Fort Macy park dude! and don’t take that flight either!
Who in the MSM is going to cover? Nixon was crucified daily. 0 gets a pass.
Only if the Republicans get control of the house and senate...
No howling mob of reporters from the Washington Post...
Well, except for Nixon's brilliant mind, vast experience, long record of competence and success, deep understanding of international politics, and abiding love for the United States of America.
But besides all that, yeah.
I pray every night that I would wake up the next day to see Jack Squat Barry boarding AF1 for the last time as he exits his position as POTUS...........
I knew that was coming from someone.
Obama couldn’t hold Nixon’s jock. Don’t get me wrong.
I know you were referring to scandals and resignation in disgrace. But here is the difference.
Dick Nixon got in trouble being loyal to his people.
Obama will get in trouble because he is a punk in the company of thugs.
Dick Nixon was hated by the Democrats and their media because he opposed their beloved Communism.
Obama is loved by the Democrats and their media because he also loves Communism.
Dick Nixon resigned to save the nation.
Obama will scorch the earth rather than resign.
“The Hill” publication: I’ve often wondered if that is a publication read by those inside the loop in Washington. Is this a “trade-type” publication for politicians?
Somebody help me out here.
But, if Eric Holder does nothing, does it go away or does Congressman Issa and the American people have any recourse?
Obama HAS to wait til Rahm gets back from Israel to get their stories straight!!!
Obama already has a Watergate. It’s called “Oilgate.”
“Obama will scorch the earth rather than resign.”
He will starta race war, at the very least.
It is up to us to make sure it does not “go away”
You’re 100% correct.
I guess the point should have been added that it will take a MUCH MORE corrupt Democrat President to get their “Nixon”.
It will take a bigger scandal to get their “Nixon”, but in the end (if this event unfolds) he will be put under the same light as Nixon. It’s unfair to Nixon, based on your list of points.
I just hope they get their “Nixon”. They deserve it.
They deserve it for making a bigger deal out of Nixon and hating him more than they should have. They deserve it for doing everything they could to blame Bush for Katrina; blaming Bush for 9-11; lying about the Valerie Plame “scandal”; making Sarah Palin look like the Devil to the average American.
They deserve their Katrina, Plame Scandal, and Watergate all rolled up into one!!
It almost seems like the perfect storm is brewing for this to happen.
In the meantime, I will just dream about it.
