Issa: Sestak scandal could be Obama's 'Watergate'
the hill ^ | 5/27/10 | Bridget Johnson

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.

I told my cousin 3 months ago he was the Democrat version of Nixon.

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 there’s 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. It’ll be hilarious.

I can’t wait till Blago writes a book about all this. The WH knows Blago is a crazy Serb, and he’ll take them all down if he’s messed with. Suddenly, he’s not a “nut,” he’s another guy caught in Omoslem’s Chicago Mafia Machine, just like Sestak.

Folks, don’t carpool with Blago, b/c I suspect he’s about to have “an accident.” Perhaps he’ll overdose on aspirin.

But before the WH kills Blago, let’s get Blago back on TV, do some interviews with him about WH crimes!

It is unfortunate that after all these decades presidential scandals are still measured against Watergate. Nixon -and I say this as someone who has no particular love for that presidency- covering up for his underlings crimes hardly measures up to Kennedy/Johnson stealing the 1960 election, Clinton allowing ICBM tech to be sold to the Chinese for campaign contributions or about a hundred different things that Dear Leader Obama has done over the last 16 months or so.

EXACTLY!

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 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.

Per Dick Morris on "Hannity" and Karl Rove on "Greta Sesteren" the three statutes violated by the offer (bribe) to Sestak DO constitute High Crimes and Misdemeanors making it AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE!!

So, to answer your question....YES; it's impeachable.

But, if Eric Holder does nothing, does it go away or does Congressman Issa and the American people have any recourse?

Obama already has a Watergate. It’s called “Oilgate.”

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.
