Yesterday became the sixth time that White House press secretary Robert Gibbs has refused to answer a question from a member of the White House press corps about Jobsgate. Jobsgate, as we call it here, refers to the emphatic charge of Congressman Joe Sestak, the Pennsylvania Democrat challenging Senator Arlen Specter for renomination, that someone (unnamed) in the Obama White House offered him a job if he would withdraw his candidacy.
Last night Sean Hannity drew attention to Mr. Gibbs’ stonewalling, pointedly warning him to come clean. Senator Arlen Specter, on Friday, said that making this offer, as Sestak claims was done, is a federal crime. And that Sestak may be committing “misprision of a felony” simply by not reporting a federal crime to the proper authorities. A similar situation has arisen in Colorado, with the Denver Post saying a job offer came from White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina to Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff.
So here’s what we will do here at TAS. Yesterday marks the 22nd day since Mr. Gibbs first promised an answer on this. That makes six refusals to answer truthfully in 22 days.
So we will do a daily tick-tock here on the blog site, counting the days since Mr. Gibbs first promised the truth.
Today is March 17. The 23rd day since Robert Gibbs promised an answer as to whether Congressman Sestak was offered a job by the Obama White House.
You could tell the truth today, Mr. Gibbs. Will you?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
