    If the story is true, then Joe Sestak gets my respect.
    Dems need to realize that their beloved Obama administration is basically Bush's third term.

    The ultimate minority is the individual. Protect the individual from Democracy and you will protect all groups of individuals
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Justice Department declines to appoint independent counsel for Sestak case

    Daily Caller
    May 26, 2010

    The Department of Justice doesn’t need any outside help investigating the White House — at least that’s what DOJ says. In a letter to California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich attempts to tip-toe around the congressman’s request for an independent counsel to investigate a bribery claim made by Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak.

    “You have asked that a special counsel be appointed to handle the investigation of this matter,” Weich writes. “The Department of Justice, however, has a long history of handling investigations of high level officials professionally and independently, without the need to appoint a special counsel.”

    Sestak first made the bribery allegation in February, telling a Pennsylvania radio host that a White House official offered him a job in exchange that he not run for Senate, and has reiterated that claim multiple times in the last week.

    In response to the DOJ letter, Issa released the following: “The attorney general’s refusal to take action in the face of such felonious allegations undermines any claim to transparency and integrity that this administration asserts. The bottom line is, if what Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod said is true and nothing ‘inappropriate’ or ‘problematic’ happened, then why doesn’t the White House disclose what actually happened, who was involved and what was promised. Either Sestak is lying, which is the only way nothing ‘inappropriate’ happened or the White House is and Robert Gibbs is lying.”

    The DOJ’s letter, dated May 21, comes three weeks after Issa’s initial inquiry, and two weeks after Attorney General Eric Holder claimed in a May 16 hearing that he had already responded to Issa’s concerns.

    While I am a lot more inclined to believe Sestak than any member of the Obama administration, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that Sestak is just using this as an opportunity to distance himself from Obama.

    Wither that or the establishment has decided to throw Obama under the bus.
    He's getting a lot of negative press lately.

    I don't know if you've ever heard Joe speak or what he stand for but in all honesty I have to say he'd be a great cast member in a USSR version of Hunt for Red October, playing Sean Connery's part.

    Toomey is not that great but if you want government to go on a rampage socializing everything it can get it's hands on, by all means support Sestak.

    I did not say I supported Sestak. But a liberal versus a neo-con is not my idea of a choice.

    Toomey is not all that bad by today's neocon standards. He is way more free market oriented and seems to stay further away from the rank and file Republican social stances other than abortion. He was the President of Club for Growth, that's not a bad organization as far as I'm aware.

    Compared to Sestak, Toomey is a gem. Sestak is ultra liberal.

    Of course this happened. This kind of thing happens all the time in both parties. Nothing's going to come of it. You can be sure that Obama's people did it in a way that preserves plausible deniability for all people involved.

    Unless someone got careless in the words they used and that particular conversation got taped, then this will blow over fast.
