Watching the media follies over the Obama-Sestak job offer is falling into a pattern that makes me wonder if any of the left-wing pundits, moderators, talking heads, and politicians ever had a mother. When the applicable laws are explained it is clear that the Obama Administration violated at least the spirit if not the letter of the law in trying to dissuade Representative Joe Sestak (D-PA) from knocking out traitor Senator Arlen Spector (D/R/D – PA) in the recent primary election. The only real question is if that violation rises to the level of a crime.
However the only defense the left seems to have is that “everybody does it.” I laugh every time I hear that. Where is their mother to say “if little Johnny jumps off a cliff would you do it too?” Why didn’t Scooter Libby point out that he was being jailed for a faulty memory while we are building a library for serial liar Bill Clinton? Would the “everybody does it” defense work for that? No doubt the Obama administration pulled Clinton into the maelstrom of Obama-Sestak because Ole Bill can be reliably counted on to lie.
It makes one wonder if disgraced South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford (R-SC) should have used the “everybody does it” defense in fending off attacks over his indiscretions. Could he have pointed to Bill Clinton and said “Hey guys, lighten up.” Shouldn’t he point to the Clintonian alliance between Bill and Hillary and ask wife Jenny Sanford – “What happened to until death do us part?”
Someone should get to former Representative “Duke” Cunningham (R-CA) who is behind bars and have him point out the “everybody does it” defense. Congress Jack Murtha (D-PA) got to die in office even though he was possibly the most corrupt politician ever in a Party riddled with corrupt politicians. Duke should lobby Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to be returned to Congress and have all his bribes and Congressional privileges returned. After all, Charlie Rangel (D – NY) still has a job.
The “everybody is doing it” defense didn’t work on my mother, why are we letting these scumbags get away with it? Does Obama think that Chicago-style politics should be imported into the rest of the country? A civil society is utterly dependent on the rule of law. It isn’t predicated on the ability of people to mince words (As in that depends on what the definition of “is” is) or dodge responsibility by pointing out that someone else broke the law. Maybe I should try that the next time I get pulled over for speeding – “Didn’t you see that red Charger officer? She must have been pushing 90 mph!”
