Charles Krauthammer's Take On Joe Sestak

Fox All-Stars last night discussing the day’s events related to the offer of a job made to Joe Sestak via Bill Clinton.

Charles Krauthammer absolutely took the White House statement on the matter apart. He said: “I found the statement from the White House just unbelievably lawyerly, and I must say, deceptive.” Krauthammer pointed out that the statement says “efforts” were made in June and July of last year to determine if Sestak would be interested in appointive service. That would seem to mean more than one effort. Who made the other “efforts,” and what did they offer to Sestak? “I’ve never heard of a phone call that lasted for two months,” he said.

Krauthammer said “a crime has been committed” in the Colorado Senate race, as the White House offered a paid job to Democrat candidate Andrew Romanoff to drop his bid against incumbent Democrat Sen. Michael Bennett.

Stephen Hayes said what the White House has said is “implausible.” Hayes does not think it makes any sense that such a paltry position would be offered to coax Sestak to drop a U.S. Senate bid.

As far as whether the story will now die, Hayes thinks it will not, but both Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer think it will after this weekend, with Krauthammer predicting the media will “cover Obama’s backside” on this.

Fox News Anchor Bret Baier ended by saying, “We’ll stay on it here.”


Wild Thing's comment......

It is very curious that's for sure. One thing we all know is that Obama, Rahm, Clinton all are liars.

Guess we will just have to wait to see what happens with this.

Now we have the two most dishonest men in the country in Washington at the Big house. Clinton no. 1 and obama no. 1A. as far as competition goes I think the edge has to go to Clinton. Together they make the biggest bunch of liars, ever.

Mark, they sure do, what a disgrace to our country. No other country has had leaders that apologize about their country like Clinton's apology tour and obama's too.

Jan, that is exactly where they belong.
