Romanoff job offer would have been a bigger deal if Bush had done it -- says Washington Post? 

It's practically a parlor game among conservatives to note how often problems under Obama get ignored when the media would have crucified George W. Bush for had they happened on his watch. So it's a little jarring to see the Washington Post making this same point in a hard hitting editorial about the Romanoff/Sestak job offers:

If this is not a quid pro quo -- a federal job in exchange for dropping the Senate bid -- it is uncomfortably close. Substitute Karl Rove for Jim Messina and imagine the uproar if the Bush administration had engaged in such a baldly political exchange.
