Gibbs On Sestak: I Know Our CYA Report Doesn't Actually Answer Your Questions But That's All You're Gonna Get

Looks like the most transparent administration is doing some remodeling at the White House by building a stone wall around the Sestak job offer.

“The Intelligence Advisory Board, which most reports said this offer was for, that would be a position a member of the House could not serve on,” a reporter said.

“That’s how I understand the way the PIAB is written,” Gibbs said.

“But the memo, it said that this would be a position to serve in the House and serve on a presidential advisory board.”

“Correct,” Gibbs said.

“Well, how could he sit on the board?”

“He couldn’t,” Gibbs said.

“So that wasn’t the offer, then?”

“I’d refer you to — ”

“What position, what board, was it then? Do you know?”

“I’d refer you to the memo.”

“But the memo didn’t specify.”

“Right,” Gibbs said. “Thank you.”

Ah, well thanks for clearing that up Gibbsy.

It's absolutely amazing how so much of the press will carry water for an administration that has such contempt for them. Yes, there have been some minor signs of hurt feelings and disappointment lately (Dana Milbank for example) but it's clearly nothing like the frenzy we'd see if a Republican treated the press this way.

BTW- Pat Toomey says no one in the Bush White House tried to get him out of the race 6 years ago when he challenged then Republican Arlen Specter for the party's Senate nomination.

Most ethical administration ever!

In fairness to Gibbs, he's at a loss as to what to say since not even he thinks "We inherited this job offer from the previous administration" line on this one.
