Well, remember, just the other day, Obama claimed he didn’t know anything about Birnbaum’s resignation. Maybe he’s trying to set up a defense that he was out of the loop on everything.

If the job was Secretary of the Navy, as it has been rumored, wouldn’t Obama have to give his approval? Rahm and Clinton don’t have the power to offer that role without Obama’s consent, right?

Right! You have a former President getting involved in the "negotiations" and we're supposed to believe that a sitting president (lower case 'p') isn't already in the loop?!

Plausible deniability, my arse!

Hmmmm. Odds there are NO cell phone records backing up this “convo”?

The lawyers made up this non pay board post. Obviously trying to take the money out of it. Admiral to US Senator to... unpaid intern?

Regardless, the law says “anything of value.”

Into Clintonland we venture...

He sure isn't very curious about what goes on in his own administration.

This is a pretty stupid cover-up.

Remember when Arlen Spector said,
“that the reported conduct, if true, would constitute a “crime.”

So even senile Arlen Spector recognized this as a crime. Obama’s guys just saw it as normal Chicago style tactics.

I wonder what Clinton is getting from this episode. He is exposed as a lawbreaker. He hates Obama for treating hillary so badly as well as calling Billy-boy a racist in South Carolina during the primaries. Does he have a presidential pardon in his lockboxz? Can Clinton pull this card out and play any time he wants since this crap, no doubt, leads to Obama?

No president knows everything his aides discuss with others, but it’s highly unlikely that he wouldn’t know about offers that involve cabinet positions. Unless he’s not in charge, that is.

CNN's John King reported that a White House source told him Barack Obama was kept in the dark about the bribe attempt until "recent days."

B S !!!

Does anyone find it strange that Clinton just happens to show up yesterday for a photo op with Obama and then has a private lunch with him? They must honestly think we are stupid!

The Washington Post claims the timing is off on the Secretary of the Navy job. That Obama had already filled this post.

This rumor may have been started by Obama’s admin after the fact to throw us off what the real job was.

Doesn't matter, he is the captain of the ship (of state) therefore he is responsible.

” the job was Secretary of the Navy, as it has been rumored, wouldn’t Obama have to give his approval? Rahm and Clinton don’t have the power to offer that role without Obama’s consent, right?”

IMO, they would not have involved Clinton in this mess unless they absolutely had to. Which means that it probably leads directly to Zero. Otherwise, they would have just tossed whoever they needed to under the bus with the rest of their human sacrifices!

back in the eighties, i was a democrat.... hey i was young okay? while waiting at one of those 10 minute oil change places i was reading a magazine. it had this page full of what i call “HE SAID WHAT?” quotes and one quote in particular stood out. GHW Bush had said, in regards to the iran/contra scandal crap, “I deny ever having an opinion on anything.” for better or worse that was burned into my mind permanently. i think it is possible that the phrase “white house source says obama ignorant” may also stay imbedded in my brain for a very long time.
