Clinton Denies Attempting To Keep Sestak Out Of Senate Race

August 18, 2010 by  

Clinton denies attempting to keep Sestak out of Senate race Former President Bill Clinton made an appearance last week at a Pennsylvania-area high school to lend his support to Democratic Senate nominee Joe Sestak—the same man that he allegedly asked to drop out of the state’s primary election to make way for incumbent Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

At the request of the White House, Clinton allegedly attempted to persuade Sestak to accept an unpaid presidential advisory position rather than run for the veteran senator’s seat, according to a publicly-released Federal memorandum. Sestak rebuffed the former president and went on to defeat Specter, who is a well-known Obama ally.

However, Clinton recently contradicted the White House’s report—as well as Sestak’s own account of their meeting—by denying that he ever made such an offer.

Clinton refuted the allegations three separate times when he was asked by a reporter why he was campaigning for Sestak after he previously attempted to end the nominee’s candidacy, according to Fox News.

"I wasn’t," said Clinton. "I didn’t try to get him out of the race. I wasn’t even accused of that."

With the November elections only a few months away, the former president has spent the last week actively campaigning for several Democrats.

"Give us two more years, and if we’re wrong, send us packing," said Clinton at one such rally. "Don’t elect the shovel brigade, keep electing the builders."

    And we are supposed to believe Clinton why? Oh, I know, because he has such a good history of always telling the truth. He has never lied about anything at any time in all of his life. HA!

    • DaveH

      It depends on what the meaning of the word wasn’t was.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      he’s an exhibitionist. remember this?”I was never alone with that woman!” We have a dress with his DNA on it so if he told the truth, he’s an exhibitionist!!!

    • William

      this is not the first lie this dirt bag has told and it wont be his last,

    • independant thinker

      Bill and Hill both would rather tell a lie than tell the truth.

    • JeffH

      The mpment he said “I didn’t” I knew it was a lie…he moved his lips!

  • dan az

    Some how he reminds me of obumer the kiss of death!Any one that would want this peace of white trash speaking for them will have the same fate that mombo had on his support to all the losers.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      dan az,
      If that’s so, can we get him to campaign for Nobama in 2012????

  • s c

    Is Bubba Clinton imitating Herr Obummer, or is Herr Obummer imitating Bubba Clinton? May they both experience the joys of an outraged America determined to exact a literal pound of flesh from both. ET TU!

  • TIME

    Folks how can you tell if Bill is lying? His lips are moving.

    I know Bill he is a nice guy as far as having a drink with or just shooting the crap, but Bill can’t help himself, to him to lie is normal, just as it is 90% of all politicians.

    Thats why I say don’t vote for Baby kissers, Pat on the backers, Dead fish hand shakers, or BIG PROMISE Makers, with the last one the bigger the promise, the bigger the LIE.

    • alpha-lemming

      You stole my punch-line (his lips are moving)!!

  • J.M.R.

    when i saw our preseant dick-tater he reminded me of slick willy, guess what 2 peas in the pod

  • Rick Smith

    And a [word removed] is not sex. Keep the lies to yourself, slick willie

    • alpha-lemming

      This is starting to make A LOT of sense!!

      Oaral sex isn’t sex (even though “sex” is in the titile) so why can’t a BJ be “job” creation??

      Maybe he convinced himself he was telling the truth?!?!

  • 45caliber

    If Clinton showed up to speak in favor of ME running for office, I’d know that I was going to fail right there. I agree with Senator Towers’ comment about him one time years ago – “We have a felon in the White House and I’m not going to jail with him.”

    I wouldn’t trust Clinton with a thin dime.

    • Harold Olsen

      I agree. If I were running for office and Clinton showed up to campaign for me, I wouldn’t vote for me.

      • dan az

        Neither would I!

  • 45caliber

    By the way. Have you ever wondered why you constantly see Bill in the spotlight? (Beyond the fact that he likes it there.) The next Secretary-General of the UN is to come from this hemisphere. And many third world countries would like him in office, particularly with Hillary involved in the US government too. He’s been running for that job ever since he left the Presidency.

    • dan az

      You mean impeached!

  • Harold Olsen

    I have heard, though I do not know how true it is, that when the UN was created, the United States supposedly barred itself from having an American as Secretary-General.

    • 45caliber

      No, we didn’t. But we did specify that one nation couldn’t have it every term. That’s why it shifts every term as to where a person comes from. There is nothing to say that it WILL be an American – but there isn’t anything to stop it either.

    Whorehound Clinton lies, na, it wasn’t his mouth, it was interchange lower vent making noise. Both Onumnut and whorehound are as close as a ewe and a cockleburr. Just another example of the calibur of the National Socialist Democrat Union Party uses as leaders. Whorehound will get some pay off, maybe Clintons and Omorons will create a close personal bond, like a set double salt and pepper shakers.

  • Michael J.

    I can hear him now, “I did not have sex with Monica Sestak.. uh.. I mean Joe Lewinsky..uh.. whatever their name IS depends on your definition of what is,is anyhow. I can not clearly recollect senator, but even if it did happen, neither one of us inhaled”.

    I remember the Clinton era well, sophmoric scandels that included pizza, cigars and interns making a mockery out of the office of the presidency that gave a green light to the terrorist that America was week and ripe for the picking.

  • Joe R.

    When the dust settles the three worst presidents will be in order: Obamanation, Clinton and Carter. Notice that all three are Democrats. I think that the best Democrat we have had lately was good old Harry Truman.

    • 45caliber

      And I wasn’t happy with Truman about stopping the nuking of China’s army before it invaded Korea. Actually, that was simply a political move to insure only politicians and not generals were Presidential material.

  • CJ

    I don’t know the details, but I hope he wasn’t stumping at a high school to influence the kids to convence their parents on how to vote. Manipulation of a nieve kid on political decisions in a partisan speech borders on child abuse.

    • eddie47d

      Such an unimportant topic and you give it so much credence. Is it a slow day for you all? Britney Spears and even the Rolling Stones influenced kids far more than ol’ Bill. You love to keep the gossip mill going;kind of like the National Enquirer.

      • 45caliber

        You must not have a family. Kids are a lot more interesting in such things than you seem to realize.

        • eddie47d

          45; I’m sure if you fuel the fire they will be interested in just about anything. I have 3 kids and 4 grandkids.

  • Bob from Socal

    If he is not careful, he will have his place with all the other liars in the Lake of Fire.

    • 45caliber

      I think he knows he’s going to be there but hopes that he will be high enough on the pile to not feel the heat.

  • http://gmail i41

    47 do you have the typical hurt feelings, for all admireing of all socialist democrats. Not paying attention to the feel good Onumnut, sure proves how damn dumb idoits were who voted for the muslim marixist moron, and what he was up to. Go play house or take a nap with your Sarah or Michelle Backman dolls, you will feel better. Or maybe today it is your Blarney Franks vacum wind up doll, identity confusion issues, huh.

    • eddie47d

      i41; If you’ll share your National Enquirer with me or let me play with your wind up Obama doll.

  • chuck b

    barry better keep an eye on clinton, he’s on the trail back to the white house. bill is subtly undermining the muslim and setting hillary up for the democratic nomination for pres. in 2012. the only factor is if the repubs gain the house and senate back and get the economy going again, the moronic crowd would vote the muslim right back for another four years just like clinton. it’s one of those damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

  • jondar2

    Bill Clinton LIE? that just depends on what your definition of “is” is.

    There is a list of Obama crimes against America reported to cover 36 pages. But will the lame-stream media (that tingle up my leg contingent) ever question the existance of it or the crimes listed?

    Get real! If it weren’t for Fox, Newsmax, The Weekly Standard and darn few other real news media, the truth would never be revealed at all.

  • http://charter howe

    Clinton is as deceitful and deceptive as Obama when it comes to avoiding the truth, which makes it easier for many to understand the commonality of their relationship. Its a liberal trait to say one thing and do another. Its a lifestyle most lawyers learn from law school especially if they have to absorb psychology and advanced logic courses at the same time. The socialist ideology is what drives the individual toward a radical mental perception of what the real world looks like. Sestak and Clinton are both damaged goods because they are involved in a controversy that wreaks of corruptness or at the very least a lack of integrity. One is lying and the the other is deflecting blame by failure to state the facts. WE THE PEOPLE are entitled to hear the truth. If you believe the role of a politician is to form these radical opinions which determine how people are governed then you also accept the consequence that goes with it until your freedom is finally taken away and there is no turning back. There is nothing more pathetic than a person who will not vote to determine if the outcome for them will be victory or demise, so Please vote Nov 2010.

  • grey lady

    This whole deal was made up to distance him from obama in order to Sestak elected over the turncoat because the dems were through with him. It also gave Sestak face time during the primary that he probably wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.
    The primary in Arkansas was also set up to make out that Lincoln was not a favorite of obama.

  • http://LibertyDigest Michael G.

    I don’t believe anything that Bill Clinton says. He’s the reason I turned away from the dem. party. I swore that I’d never vote for a dem again, and I haven’t. It’s going to stay that way.

  • Jo

    I don’t get it. Why wasn’t this a prosecute-able crime? Isn’t this like Blagojovich’s attempted selling of “the seat”. I mean why are Dems not held to the same level of accountability as Repubs?? (I am young so don’t bash me for not being up on the political scene, I just am getting into it)

    also I recently heard that Bill Clinton made 40 million the past 6 years!!! How is this possible, must be doing something shady…
