At what point does Barack Obama’s associations become an issue with the American voter and his canned excuses become old and tired? Ignorance is not an excuse.
One day after Barack Obama became the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee, his former fundraiser and political supporter Tony Rezco was convicted of multiple federal corruption charges.
One really must now call into account Obama’s judgment and his associations with people. First we had a 20 year relationship with Reverend Wright and Trinity Church, now comes an association with a convicted felon. Obama is becoming a broken record when it comes to his lame apologies for his less than stellar judgment with regard to who he has previously associated with. Why is Obama’s excuse always … “that is not the person I knew?” Maybe its because Obama has no sense when it comes to people or he does not care.
Obama: “I’m saddened by today’s verdict. This isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew, but now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform. I encourage the General Assembly to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent these kinds of abuses in the future.”
Doesn’t this sound an awful bit like, “Oh, I never saw that side of Rev Wright in 20 years”
